PRLog (Press Release) – Jan. 18, 2011 – Eco-friendly Wine Shipping Containers Announced in California Wine Country
BURTON, MICH — Landaal Packaging Systems will reveal the most eco-friendly insulated wine shipping container available in today’s marketplace at two important wine events this month in California.
Thousands of wine industry professionals attending the Direct To Consumer Wine Symposium and The Unified Wine and Grape Symposium will be among the first to see this revolutionary product, and have an opportunity to make wine shipping a more environmentally-friendly part of their business.
At the center of this product is a substance called Green Cell Foam®.
Landaal’s Green Cell Foam® is an alternative insulating material produced from little more than 100% US-grown corn, contains no petrochemicals, and has several responsible disposal methods, including composting.
“Landaal’s mission is to be the leader in sustainable packaging,” says Terry Choate, Sales and Operations Planning Manager for Landaal Packaging. He’s also well aware that in today’s marketplace being green isn’t enough. “We must be competitively green as well” he says.
University studies show that production of Green Cell Foam® has up to an 80% reduction in greenhouse gases and a 70% decrease in energy requirements from polystyrene. Legacy materials such as polystyrene and polypropylene have a lifetime of hundreds, if not several thousand years in a landfill, not to mention being derived from non-renewable fossil fuels.
In the relatively young market of sustainable, eco-friendly shipping coolers, Landaal Packaging Systems’ Green Cell Foam® is one of the longest-used, most-tested and effective biodegradable cold chain shipping materials on the market today. Green Cell Foam® has passed or exceeded rigorous testing benchmarks set by the pharmaceutical industry for its refrigerated shipping needs, where temperature control is critical to the chemical integrity of medical products and human safety.
Green Cell Foam® also adds the benefits of greater shock absorption, the ability to wick away excess condensation and a reduction in wine label scuffing.
Landaal Packaging Systems is a valuable resource for progressive-minded companies looking to shrink their carbon footprint, or simply to rethink their packaging materials and shipping practices. Check out this video for more information: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_2FTlNLlyc
Andy Starr will be Landaal’s sales and marketing representative. Andy is a winemaker, entrepreneur, and innovation veteran of the wine industry.
