Ecobliss has developed Locked4Kids, a reclosable carton box designed to prevent young children from gaining access to the content. Adults, however, should be able to open the box easily. The majority of all drugs are sold in blister strips, which are packaged in a carton box easily opened by small children. In the US and Europe, a case of medicine poisoning is registered every 30 seconds. In Europe alone each year over 5,000 children die as a result of poisoning by medicine and household chemicals.

Ecobliss has successfully developed the first reclosable child resistant carton, which is certified according the EN 8317 and UN 16 CRG 1700.20 standard for reclosable child resistant packaging. After opening the box, the medicine can only be removed by simultaneously pushing the two tabs on the sides and pulling out the blister that holds the medicine. Locked4Kids has been tested and certified by BVI in Belgium an ISO 17025 certified testing institute.
