Ecogrease is for quick release pins, seat posts, pivots, bike building and other grease applications. Grease will get on your hands, so ours doesn't contain Teflon/PTFE or petrochemicals. In fact we've had mechanics call in to say thanks, having suffered dermatitis in the past from the toxic less caring brands out there.
Ecogrease will biodegrade after its life on the bike - it needs the warmth, moisture and bacteria in the soil to break down back into the environment.Why use Ecogrease? Grease is for bearings, but mainly parts which don't move much. For example, a quick release pin or thread on a seat post. Pedal threads, pivots and seat post shafts also require grease.
