Syosset, NY (PRWEB) March 07, 2013
Paradigm Group, makers of Emerald Brand Collection, sustainable and earth friendly office, break room and disposable products for your home and business announced today support of the recent initiative of Mayor Bloomberg's office to ban foam products in New York City.
'As a company, Emerald Brand has always taken pride in being the industry leader in researching and developing alternative materials for disposable products,' said Ralph Bianculli JR, Director of Emerald Brand. 'The founders of Emerald Brand recognized the need for alternative consumable products back in 1997. Now, after 15 years of developing rapidly renewable products, we are thrilled that New York City and Mayor Bloomberg are pushing to replace foam disposables with alternative products in the biggest city in the country. A ban in NY means that it is now universally recognized that large municipalities can no longer in good conscience continue to manufacture and use products as harmful as plastic foam,' declared Mr. Bianculli.
Emerald Brand is ready to support the ban in NY and other cities around the country with a selection of over 165 earth friendly alternative consumable products. Our goal is to educate consumers about alternative choices such as disposable paper plates and napkins made with tree free alternative materials like bagasse (derived from sugarcane) and disposable utensils molded from corn starch. Emerald offers products that significantly reduce our carbon footprint.
We are hopeful that with the help of Mayor Bloombergs influence, New York will be on the forefront of urban initiatives to reduce toxic waste and revitalize America.
