Billerica, MA (PRWEB) December 07, 2011
GXT Green™ and its parent company, Global Exchange Technologies, Inc, have secured a second round of funding from a consortium of investors. Funding will be used for working capital to expand distribution of ECOgrade™ degradable shopping bags and GXT Green’s sustainability products and services. Exact amount of the investment was not disclosed at this time.
“GXT Green degradable shopping bags and grocery bags have been receiving tremendous attention from key retailers in the market”, stated Bob Chatterjee, President of GXT Green. “This additional funding will provide us with the working capital to meet expected demand, as well as build out the infrastructure to support distribution”. ECOgrade bags are a technologically advanced degradable bag solution that ends the “paper or plastic” debate once and for all. They use less plastic resin to manufacture, can be safely recycled, degrade to a non-toxic residue in less than 240 days if littered, and cost about the same as regular plastic grocery bags.
In addition to supporting the expansion of ECOgrade bag business, this additional funding will be used to build distribution for GXT Green’s ECO-RSP Zero-waste packaging products, The GXT Green Wheel Seal Vehicle Offset Program, implementation of GXT Green’s REDD+ Carbon Offset projects in Southeast Asia, and continued development of the Global Exchange Commodity Trading Platform.
"We've secured the expertise of some of the most experienced and successful marketing pioneers available," stated Bob Matson, President of Financial Management, Inc., a lead investor. "These guys really understand both the needs of our market and the business strategy required to be successful."
