Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 4, 2008 -–
Greenhance, http://www.greenhance.com, a marketing consultancy that helps small businesses grow greener, is proud to introduce its brand new packing tape, printed with a bold green "Reused Packaging!" message, enabling small and medium sized businesses to proudly reuse boxes and shipping materials.
"Businesses tend to shy away from reusing boxes for shipping," says Jennifer Kaplan, Greenhance partner. "There is a bit of a stigma around it. But with our Reused Packaging! tape, now businesses can proudly say, ‘we recycle’. It’s cool to reuse!"
Kaplan and partner, Graphic Designer Lise Gladstone, have worked with many business owners in their efforts to go green. Reusing packaging materials is one very big step in that direction. As the small print on their new tape explains, "Paper and paperboard accounts for 35% of the total materials discarded in the U.S." "By reusing boxes and packing envelopes, these items don’t enter the stream of solid waste headed for our landfills until they are completely worn out," says Kaplan.
Interest in green business practices is on the rise. As reported in the GreenBiz.com’s State of Green Business 2008 Report, most major corporations now recognize the wisdom of eco-friendly initiatives; companies across a variety of industries from Wal-Mart and Google, to BP, Dupont and General Electric have major green initiatives in place.
The advantages for Greenhance’s new packing tape include:
- saving costs in purchasing new shipping materials
- promoting green practices to customers and other businesses
- reducing waste
- becoming an environmentally friendly business
- promoting sustainability
- ultimately reducing global energy costs
The price for two rolls of Reused Packaging! tape is $6.95 plus shipping and handling and volume discounts are available. Compare this with the savings of not purchasing new packing materials, and businesses could tally some substantial savings in their overhead each year.
Reused Packaging! tape rolls are:
2" x 330’ long
Strong Pressure Sensitive
UPS, FedEx and USPS Approved
Lightweight (saves on postage)
Compatible with hand held dispensers
