Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) August 20, 2008
Cream City Ribbon® is red, white and blue… environmentally responsible and gives back too.
Manufactured from cotton fibers and soy-based inks, biodegradable Cream City Ribbon, is the only U.S.-made, non-woven natural cotton ribbon on the market. In addition to individual spools, the new Cream City Ribbon Premium Ribbon Kit offers 20 spools and 100 yards of unique colors and patterns to add flair to gift wrap and crafts.
"Cream City Ribbon is about much more than just creating a pretty package, it's ribbon that expresses our shared commitment to the environment," said Lorette Russenberger, president of Cream City Ribbon. "Our manufacturing processes date back to the 1920s, but our use of organic materials and soy-based inks are about making a product that is good for the world today."
In addition to manufacturing an environmentally responsible product, woman-owned Cream City Ribbon is also focused on supporting community-based efforts. Five percent of sales from the Premium Ribbon Kit will be donated to the Urban Ecology Center, a non-profit organization focused on inspiring city kids to make positive environmental change.
