ROCHESTER, MI - ITW Angleboard
Pat Fitzgerald, New Market Development Manager for Angleboard, added that, "For the typical retailer, much of the waste at their distribution centers is from leftover paper and plastic packaging.
Through our Reclaim Recycle Reuse program, we have been able to help reduce this waste by millions of pounds annually for one retailer alone."
For reference, The ULS Report started its certification program in April, 2009. To be considered, items must meet two requirements:
o The product or package reduces waste or energy consumption by at least 20% when compared to previous versions or similar products.
o Related marketing claims meet FTC guidelines for environmental statements.
