[caption id="attachment_3287" align="alignright" width="246"]Sophie and Gateway SOPHIE AND GATEWAY[/caption] We are dog people. Our kids grew up with dogs as pets, so not surprisingly our grandkids are now growing up with dogs at their side. The dog in this picture is our beagle mix Gateway, who we picked up as a pup from a shelter almost eight years ago. Gateway has helped us raise, love and protect five grandchildren between the ages of two and five including the youngest, Sophie, who is shown in the picture playing with her “buddy” since birth.

13 Jul 2011 Beautiful, Green Packaging Solutions Often Come In Somewhat Homely Products

Globe Guard® Padded Paper Mailer EnvelopesPlease understand the above unflattering description of our padded paper mailers is not my own but one expressed regularly by customers. “Please send me two more cases of those ugly padded mailers,” is a request we’ve heard on several occasions. However, our customers love them for their inner beauty, because if you look past the unusual color and the somewhat puffy appearance, they are indeed an attractive and sustainable packaging solution. What Makes Our Globe Guard® Paper Padded Envelopes So Green? They are one of the few padded products available that are 100% recycled paper inside and out. The exterior is primarily recycled post industrial content, and the fill used for the padding is 100% PCW shredded paper.

Recently, we have blogged about partitions and molded pulp options, and our inflatable and other “stock” void fill options are also quite popular. However, the need for custom packaging continues to grow as companies work not only to minimize packaging but also to completely eliminate unfavorable materials such as EPS foam in favor of greener alternatives. Of course, this all has to be accomplished at minimal cost and deliver the product being shipped safely to its destination.
