...allowing information destruction company operators to remain financially viable, while they protect the privacy of individuals is integral to the growth of the industry and individuals' peace of mind.
Irving, TX (PRWEB) January 11, 2014
Increasingly, headlines are dominated by the topic of personal information security. For document destruction companies, not only do they take this news seriously – it’s their business.
In recent years, many shredding companies and hard drive destruction specialists have responded by partnering with municipalities, non-profit organizations and Chambers of Commerce to hold “Shred Days” to encourage residents to destroy documents securely, in an effort to curtail “dumpster diving” – a form of identity theft that can occur if banking or personal information is stolen from curbside containers.
NAID® (National Association for Information Destruction) Chief Shreducation Officer, Ray Barry states, “The introduction of innovative and environmentally friendly products from many protecting the privacy of individuals, while allowing information destruction company operators to remain financially viable, is integral to the growth of the industry and the peace of mind of individuals. Destruction companies in Australia, the UK and the Netherlands have been seeing success with these types of innovative products programs for years; it’s encouraging to see North American businesses benefiting from adopting the products as well,“ added Barry.
All Source Security Container Mfg. Corp’s unveiling of the All Source Seal ‘n Shred Bags at the NAID® 2013 Annual Conference saw unprecedented response from shredding businesses seeking ways to generate new streams of revenue. As the exclusive North American distributor of the bags, All Source is on the cutting edge of seeing the industry’s response firsthand.
“Companies who’ve introduced All Source Seal ‘n Shred Bags to their customers are seeing incredible results,” explains Pete Pancel, President and General Manager at All Source. "The bags make it possible to streamline collection; no need to reroute your truck for one full bin anymore, customers can use the bags for overflow. This saves time and resources while reducing the environmental impact of trucks on the road. Not only that, but offering the fully shredable bags has opened up new residential business opportunities for our customers.”
The self-sealing paper document bags adhere using glue made from potato starch and are constructed of paper made from “tree flakes” or parts of the tree that would otherwise be wasted. This makes it possible to shred the entire bag and its contents without causing harm to the environment or shredding equipment.
