Plastic is a part of our everyday lives, present in everything from the toys our children play with to the foam cushions on our couches. Chances are good that you likely drink out of a plastic water bottle and rely on the plastic mouse you need to use your computer, and that is why it is so difficult to imagine a world where plastic is not a part of our everyday lives.
We had a great time showcasing our green products and mission at this year’s PACK EXPO Las Vegas. As first-time attendees and one of over 2,000 other exhibitors, there was so much to see and learn. We were truly honored to be part of the event.
We see birds of all shapes, sizes, and colors in our daily lives, but one bird in particular has captured the hearts and minds of humans since the first explorers set sail on the open seas. Penguins, everyone’s favorite tuxedo-clad birds, have a long history of charming everyone lucky enough to encounter them. From their awkward way of walking (okay, waddling) to their enviable parenting methods, penguins are fascinating birds with a storied and interesting history – and a tenuous future.
Look around the room and consider the objects around you. Your computer, chair, phone, and the Fitbit®, those items that you use every day, all came from an industrial manufacturing facility. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to find an item that was not created, assembled, and packaged at a factory somewhere in the world.
