Here’s a comprehensive look at sustainable packaging from a marketing perspective, by Jackie DeLise at Sustainable is Good. Her lexicon of sustainable terms is concise and very useful.
From the Packaging Network, a sustainable rundown on PACK EXPO, confirming Joe Angel’s (VP and Publisher of Packaging World) interview comments that 2008 will be the greenest PACK EXPO ever.
The Green Routine explains that most plastic bags are made from natural gas, not oil. The author is not a fan of plastic bags, but observes that natural gas, much of which we produce domestically, is better than oil, which is mainly imported.
Political advice for our presidential candidates from The Triple Bottom Line, through the example of a get-things-done executive who is using his skills to make large organizations more sustainable.
Another from Sustainable is Good – photos of overuse of secondary packaging from an order fulfilled by Amazon. We spend much of our time here helping shippers eliminate exactly this sort of thing. It’s not as easy as you might think.
And finally, a thank you to David Bellm, who mentioned us recently on his Packaging Digest blog. We really appreciate the fact he considers our blog balanced, because we try hard to achieve that, even though we do, as David observes, sell packaging.
