Pet Beverage Bottles Are One Of The Trends For Future Development

Pet Beverage Bottles Are One Of The Trends For Future Development

PET beverage packaging as the packaging aspect of food production enterprises, more than 30 years people have been exploring ways to replace Glass bottle And tin cans in the packaging materials and containers, and plastic is the best material currently available. It has the characteristics of light weight, can reduce transportation costs. But not every plastic are suitable for Food Packaging . Polyester (PET) food packaging material appears to be a rapid development. The first use of PET bottles soft drinks business in the United States Coca-Cola Company, they used to replace 1.5-liter PET bottles 1 liter glass bottles, resulting in increased sales by 27%. PET containers after the food and beverage packaging gradually become a popular “hot demand.” PET containers light weight and strong firm attracted customers by the market. There is also a big advantage of PET material that can form any shape (the applicability of good), but also can be processed into line with people’s habit of color, text and images can be Print .

PET beverage bottles are one of the trends for future development

Domestic PET bottle of mainstream products, initially limited to colas, mineral water, distilled water used in drinks like packaging container, the application of its excellent performance and reasonable price widely welcomed by users in these drinks packaging Based on the successful application of recent years has been in the heat-resistant PET bottle bottled drinks black tea, green tea, Juice And edible oil, cosmetics, medicine, pesticide and other industries to expand its applications. It is reported that in 1996 China’s production of PET bottle 3 billion in 1998 rose to 5 billion in 2000 to reach 8 billion, 9 billion in 2001, 2002, to reach 10 billion, 13 billion in 2004 to become Plastic packaging materials Largest increase variety. Particularly since 2001 with the sudden emergence of the domestic market of tea drink (tea production in 2001 reached 3,000,000 t), tea beverages 85 ~ 90 hot filling PET bottle PET bottle has become the fastest growing in recent years species. At the same time, PET aseptic cold filling bottle the trend of the rise in Japan and other countries, cause for concern. Aseptic cold filling PET bottle technology will reduce the number of applications the importance of hot-fill PET bottles, PET bottles to increase non-heat-resistant PET bottle production in the whole of GDP. Mentioned earlier non- Carbonated beverages Fruit juice, vegetable juice, various flavors of tea drinks, dairy products, coffee, etc., the traditional hot filling perfusion techniques are used, but this technology PET bottles require a higher (must use high-temperature hot-fill PET bottles ), it was reported that Japan already has one-third of non-carbonated beverages using aseptic cold filling technology, therefore, that the future development of PET beverage bottles are one of the trends. A report said the new nutrient-based drinks and flavors added products can help revitalize the stagnant special drink bottled water market, and PET resin and PET bottle suppliers to bring new opportunities.

Recession in the global economy environment, the 2009 pairs of plastic food and beverage packaging industry in China will no doubt be a cold winter, but the ability of PET bottle industry is expected to warm more than other plastic packaging industry stronger. This is mainly the Chinese beverage market in recent years, especially fruit juice and tea drinks market growing rapidly. As the most mainstream of the current beverage packaging materials will also benefit from this PET bottle, so, PET bottles will have greater market opportunities.

Global carbon emissions have become a central focus of developed nations in attaining the twin goals of energy security and sustainability. In order to achieve this twin target of security and sustainability, there is an acute need to produce energy from the sustainable sources such as wind, solar, geothermal and biomass. The global financial crisis has provided opportunities to governments to move forward in altering the present energy generation mix. The financial stimulus packages announced by the major developed nations have allotted almost 2 billion to green energy. On the basis of announced

stimulus packages to 31st March 2009, the observation can be drawn that the Asian nations, especially China, have contributed the most to the green energy projects. South Korea has allotted the maximum amount to the green energy, followed by China.

Global Solar Thermal market was concentrated in the US only till Spain joined in 2007. Since 2007, the sector has broadened its geographical reach and Australia and Morocco has also started the solar thermal plants. Due to the high energy efficiency, the technology is gathering the interest of the other nations with the planned projects coming online from 2010. Global solar thermal cumulative installed capacity has grown from 354 MW (Megawatts) in 2001 to 697 MW in 2009 at a CAGR of 9% per annum. However, the planned projects that are coming online from 2010 onwards are anticipated to accelerate the CAGR to 46% per annum during 2010 to 2020. In 2020, the solar thermal power capacity is expected to reach at 122,252 MW from 2,715 MW in 2010. The annual installations capacity is expected to witness a big surge in the coming decade, primarily due to the significant capacity additions in the US and Spain. Additionally, the capacity addition will be supported, as many other countries like Australia, China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Algeria and Italy are coming up with the CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) projects.

The US solar thermal market grew at a CAGR of 2% per annum from 2001 to 2009. However, the government encouragement for the sector is expected to lift CAGR to astonishing levels of 46% per annum for the period 2010 to 2020. The installations are expected to pick up pace as high capacity plants come online during the period. California is expected to lead the CSP installations with almost nine projects with a capacity of more than 500 MW expected to come online during the period of which one project is having capacity of 1,000 MW. The sector growth will continue to be robust till 2020 as the RPS (Renewable Portfolio Standards) targets for the states will continue encouraging solar thermal power generation in the country.

The International Packaging Industry on Its Journey to the Future Reproted From Himfr

The International Packaging Industry on Its Journey to the Future Reproted From Himfr

The international packaging industry meets tomorrow’s trends. A great deal still remains to be done until the next interpack in 2011.

Three main tasks – as became clear at interpack 2008 – will be the continued, relentless fight against product and brand piracy, the further development of “smart” packaging and the use of nano-technology.

Product and brand piracy have come to be among the most serious forms of white-collar crime. They confront business and politicians with major problems because they have developed into a highly professional industry building on a global network. Experts estimate that approximately 10% of global trade is affected. The damage caused totals up to EUR 200 billion each year – and figures are rising.

The spectrum of counterfeited products ranges from parts in original quality at lower prices without the “expensive” producer’s label to criminally forged products in a poor quality but distributed in “genuine” looking packaging. If such a part fails – e.g. a safety-critical machine or aircraft component – it will be just a matter of time before personal injury is caused. Just as precarious are counterfeit drugs – and of many consumables and appliances. Forged products pose a growing threat to consumers’ life and health.

Product and brand protection therefore also become consumer protection.

The immediate consequence of replacing originals with forged products is a loss of turnover and profits: not only is the fight against piracy by patent rights and the legal prosecution of their violators expensive but product and brand piracy also entails a lowering of the price level at the end of the day. Prices for original merchandise come under massive pressure on account of the noticeably lower prices of product copies. And if shoppers have gone through a bad experience with products of one brand then this also negatively impacts the original. The loss of image leads to a loss of market share in the medium term – and, hence, of sales, too. Add to this product liability issues if the original producer is forced to first prove that damages were caused by a copy rather than their product.

Fighting Forgery

More and more institutions, associations and enterprises are taking up the fight against product and brand piracy on a global scale.

VDMA, the German Machinery and Plant Manufacturers’ Association, for example, initiated the “Pro Original” campaign in 2007. Its main aim is to raise awareness about the value of original technology. “Choose the Original – Choose Success” is the motto. Because “original” means quality, innovation, efficiency, experience and safety.

The COPACO Group also flies its flag: at the INNOVATIONPARC PACKAGING at interpack 2008 it presented copy-proof packaging solutions under the heading “Innovation vs. Imitation – Concepts & Solutions”. In cooperation with the VDMA and Aktion Plagiarius e.V. plenty of helpful information was presented for protecting the supply chain against copy cats and brand pirates.

In this endeavour Copaco focuses on solutions that affect the entire supply chain – from the manufacturer to the consumer. Alongside the classic safety features provided by printing, concepts for the traceability of products are gaining more and more ground.

Independent from any vendors, this consulting group offers state-of-the-art technology building on the pooled competence of its member firms plus in-house developments. This includes the Karl Knauer 3.0 NFC system, a web-based process for global product and authenticity checks for retailers and consumers. Thanks to the integration of latest radio technology it provides a comprehensive track & trace solution for inventory management along the entire supply chain including the POS.

Further options for safety concepts are offered by still recent processes, e.g. cold-foil transfer, which allows forgery-proofness to be increased in in-line printing just by packaging design. Many exciting developments can be expected in this field by interpack 2011.

Smart Packaging: future technology is pulling all the plugs

According to estimates by the US market research institute IDTechEX the world market for organic electronics will grow from currently US$ 1.2 billion to approx. US$ 48.2 billion over the next nine years. Even though the technology and its integration into industrial-scale processes have not yet reached full maturity, research is in full swing. These developments will also boost the importance of “smart packaging”.

The base material for organic electronics are conductive polymers – printable and still thinner, lighter, more flexible and less costly than silicon chips. Printed RFID transponders, flexible displays, roll-up solar cells, one-way diagnostic devices, little gadgets, “smart” labels, OLED illumination on packaging, advertising surfaces or wallpapers: for track & trace, product and brand protection as well as marketing and convenience decisive advances can be expected.

Tomorrow’s smart packaging will fulfil new functions in addition to the traditional ones – such as changing the colour of labels as soon as the shelf-life ends or packaging units that can warn of salmonella with the help of detectors.

”We are working flat out on materials and printing processes that permit us to apply electronically based intelligence to standardised printing routines,” says Martina Claus, spokeswoman of the COPACO Projekt Group “Product Protection and Smart Packaging”.

Nanotechnology on the advance

Another trend is the use of nanotechnology in the packaging industry. It is considered among the key technologies of the 21st century and will have an influence on many areas over the next few years, including the packaging of products for daily needs.

Over the past few years nanotechnology has enjoyed remarkable research success. Solutions are researched intensely. Consumers demand an increasing degree of transparency for product claims. Improved information and easier use of products, packaging as a type of service rendered – this is the customer benefit in the overall “Smart Packaging” concept.

And, again, the buzzword ‘forgery proof’ plays a role here: copying smart packaging will simply become too expensive for copy cats, even if they have the technical capabilities to do so. And this applies to nano-coatings just as much as to printed organic-electronic components.

Next-RO The Future of Un-bottled Water

Next-RO The Future of Un-bottled Water

Absolutely unique and one of a kind the new Next-RO Point-of-Use Pure Drinking Water System has lived up to the substantial product claims at NEXT-RO.com.  I own a NEXT-RO Engine which I use for product demonstrations at our health and wellness store.

 

I have been impressed with the design and construction of the injection molded manifold which eliminates the tubing and fittings between filter housings in traditional reverse osmosis water system designs.  Next-RO meets it’s claim of refilling the 1 1/2 gallon reservoir ball with pure RO (reverse osmosis) water in about 35 minutes.  Mine finishes filling in about 36 minutes each time after I empty it completely.

 

Most traditional household RO systems run refilling for about 4-6 hours against a steel storage tank’s back pressure to produce 1/1/2 gallons of RO water.  The  zero-back pressure design improvement is in the profound and novel Next-RO Engine- the automatic back flushing valve.  The bulky steel water storage pressure tank is no longer required and as a result refill times are much, much shorter with Next-RO.

The Next-RO Engine sits on the counter top or under the sink and can be connected directly to coffeemakers and other appliances and may still be used as a direct fill faucet.  Coffee, tea, herbal blends, ice cubes are all noticeably better when prepared with pure water from my Next-RO Engine.

 

The term “Engine”, from the NEXT-RO logo, I believe, refers to the special automatic back flushing valve that allows the magic to happen in this unique design without using a pressure tank or electric pump.  The control valve opens and fills the storage vessel with purified water that has gone through a carbon pre-filter, an RO membrane and another special carbon post-filter.

 

Once filled, and this is the best part of all,  the control valve reverses automatically and back flushes some pure RO water through the three quick-change filters, thus the Next-RO filters and membrane sit in pure RO water 24/7. Old style reverse osmosis drinking water systems, by design, have their filters and RO membranes sitting in raw feed water 24/7, day in day out, and do not back flush.  Whatever is in the feed water will diffuse over time into the filters and RO membrane.  This situation contributes to shorter filter lifetimes and impacts overall system effectiveness.

 

 

With regards to performance, the water produced by my new Next-RO Engine tastes great and is crystal clear of course.  I did test for dissolved solids removal by using a simple TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) meter.  My household water test indicated 350 ppm of TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) and my new NEXT-RO system brought that down to 17 ppm.  I felt that was pretty good and besides it makes such glass clear ice cubes and superior herbal teas that I shall not miss going to the store for bottled water.

 

And, as for the folks who proclaim loudly that drinking water without minerals is bad for you, they may want to stop and consider a little thing called RAIN.  People have been collecting and drinking rain water for centuries.  I believe that if you are counting on your water for your daily minerals and not your diet, that there are better approaches to consider.  If you are looking for the best contaminant free drinking water Next-RO is a solid find.

 

Reverse Osmosis water is in most plastic bottled water sold in stores.  NEXT-RO gives you complete control of your drinking water without having to buy expensive bottled water.  NEXT-RO The Future of Un-bottled Water is an apt and fitting tag line for this breakthrough water purifier system.

Effect pigments? Past, present and future (1) – effect pigments, effect pigments technology, optical film – plastic industry

Effect pigments? Past, present and future (1) – effect pigments, effect pigments technology, optical film – plastic industry

; Pigment particle orientation. Abstract: Due to fashion goods, automobile and other consumer goods market trends, drivers, to produce special effects such as changes according to the angle of observation different color or fabric used in decorative paints an increasingly important economically, is widely used in various industrial products and terminal facilities. In decorative purposes, the special effect pigment there are three main advantages: 1 It can produce the optical illusion of depth, when we pearlescent pigments used in automotive paints can be observed when this phenomenon; 2 microseconds, which can produce a basis for angle of brilliant color effects, such as it can be used in automotive paints and decorative coatings; 3 can be buttons, plastic bottles, and many other decorative objects produced effects similar to natural pearls. For the introduction of pearlescent pigments have been many, this article mainly on the effects of pigments and their production processes, the effect pigment particles in the direction and effect pigments for the study of inorganic layers such as the latest methods to provide more information .

1. Introduction Shiny, sparkling energy and angle-based optical effect has been used in various industrial products and a variety of terminal facilities. These results can be achieved using a number of practical purposes, such as security printing, and optical filters, as well as the decorative effect can be achieved, for example can be used for cosmetics packaging, plastic products, and some printing products, industrial coatings, or automotive paint. For example, in the security field, angle-based optical effects not easily be copied copier or photographic equipment, and only when similar products can be used, false is feasible. But this will forge a complex and expensive. For this reason, many countries will be multi-layer pigment pearlescent pigments and optical security for notes.

Specially designed optical multi-layer parallel-oriented polymer film and the effect of pigment in the use of media can be part of the visible light reflection. They can be used as decorative materials and functional optical materials. It is used an example of functional material is made greenhouse glass coating. This pigment can be spread and reflected light play a role and, therefore, the growth of plants play a role.

Special effect pigments for decorative material has three advantages. The first is to produce the optical illusion of depth. This is the pearlescent pigment particles in the arrangement of a variety of translucent sheet produced. This effect is the interface between the pigment and binder and pigments own reflection occurs at the interface of light that occur when extended out of the area when the outline of a car fender, this effect will be strengthened. In Europe, 30% of the cars used in car paint contain pearlescent pigments, and in the U.S., the ratio up to 40%.

Second advantage is the basis for dazzling point of changing colors. Because of its color and its unique aesthetic appeal to the eye, this special effect pigments have been widely used. The third advantage is that pigments can mimic a natural pearl luster, which can be used for buttons, plastic bottles and many other items.

Not only through the use of parallel arrangement of mixed materials to achieve special effects pigments, such as directional reflection, multiple reflections, color migration (based on the strong point of the optical effect) and other optical effects, the use of multi-layer film can also be extended to achieve the same effect. These films are basically the thickness of tens to hundreds of microns of continuous, not dyed organic or inorganic polymer materials. The typical structure of these films is the interaction of different refractive index layer of the formation of multi-layer system. On the other hand, precisely because a large number of sheets of particles can be easily arranged in parallel to the direction of effect pigments used only to show notable occasions purpose optical charm. Flaky particles and sometimes not even in the best direction for the powder coating layer arranged to use the environment, the effect pigments can produce a strong gloss. Reflection, multiple reflection. Interference can also occur here, only the disordered arrangement of particles in some cases, the resulting effect will be different.

Green Laptops: The Way to the Future

Green Laptops: The Way to the Future

Concerns over global warming and its effect to the environment have put pressure on every industry to clamp down on its energy consumption. For the computer makers and users alike, the “green” laptops are the future in mobile computing.
Since energy conservation is one prime adaptation measure that needs to be done, laptops that consume less energy are slowly gaining popularity. The lists of considerations in purchasing a laptop has gone longer and now includes energy efficiency. An ideal laptop would be one that consumes less energy, along with portability, connectivity and processing capabilities.
So what features does the green laptop of the feature need to have?
Energy Efficiency
We all know that laptops are trending towards smaller, sleeker and lighter proportions. Now, the trend towards greener performance is gaining ground. This means lesser energy consumption, longer battery life, and even alternative power sources.
There are now a lot of technologies that aims to minimizing energy wastage and consumption. The interventions include tweaking internal systems to automatically shut down unnecessary computer activities that waste energy such as the auto switch to hibernate mode when inactivity is noticed. The choice of display technology is also considered. Right now, the LCDs are the most popular. But an emerging alternative is being pushed. This is the OLED (Organic Light emitting Diode). It is said to draw less power and might have good aesthetic effects on the screen.
Solar-powered options and hybrids are also said to be in the works. Some promising tests have been shown to produce feasible and in fact cheaper models. Certainly, when the going gets tough, the research and design coverage and tasks become less mundane. While companies spend much resources to improving aesthetics, a number are now beefing up their research on greener mobile technologies. This is a good sign indeed.
Disposability and Recycling
It was surmised that the laptops disposed by China in 5 years time is enough to cover the whole of Netherlands with laptop scraps. This brings us to the issue of disposability.
First, a laptop has to be hardy enough to warrant that you do not need dispose and acquire new ones very often. Secondly, proper recycling and dumping options for gadgets, including laptops need to be addressed. This could take the form of manufacturers owning the responsibilities of recycling and disposing, especially those that are very hard to dispose. A number of companies already have recycling and disposal services for its customers. There are also big name non-profits that do the job.
It would be of help of techies themselves add pressure to manufacturers by refusing to buy gadgets without disposal services being guaranteed upon purchase. This, of course, would add up to the price of the merchandise. But that would be a small sacrifice for the benefit of the world.
Another option for techies would be to donate still-operational but old laptops to charitable organizations that can put it to better reuse.
Sustainable and Environment-Friendly Packaging
Another area that is fast gaining ground is the search for organic, bio-degradable and less costly packaging. Manufacturers themselves are hard into this and you could already see improvements in the newer products. A government mandate would add up to speeding the transition to more eco-friendly and biodegradable packaging materials. GP

The Packaging Materials Future Outlook: Key trends in new materials, lightweighting and emerging applications

The Packaging Materials Future Outlook: Key trends in new materials, lightweighting and emerging applications

The global consumer packaging market is worth around US0bn. The market has been relatively resilient in the face of economic ups and downs, but the current recession has taken its toll – 2009 saw a downturn in market value. This report pinpoints the reasons why, highlights consumer and industry trends and casts an informed and speculative eye on the future. There is no doubt that consumer goods and consumer packaging are now facts of modern life, but the market is evolving and it is only prudent to understand the drivers of change and to take this understanding into planning for the future.

The inexorable rise of plastic packaging has been the key market narrative, a rise driven by cost, convenience and the entirely natural desire to do ever more with ever less. Plastic, however, is made from petrochemicals and raw materials are becoming increasingly costly. More significant still, plastic has relatively poor environmental credentials and is profoundly disliked by consumers, particularly in the developed West. Nevertheless, the plastics sector continues to receive the lion’s share of R&D into new technology, although bioplastics and nano-enhanced ‘super packaging’ are both some way from being commercially viable. Paper-based packaging is still the largest sector and has very strong environmental credentials; improving paper-s barrier properties is a crucial step in increasing its viability as a packaging material. Glass has an enviable reputation as a premium material and as a packaging medium out of which food and drink taste better; lightweighting is helping make glass easier to handle and more cost-effective in production and distribution. The rise of the aluminium beverage can has helped sustain the metal packaging sector – in other areas; metal is being developed through higher-quality graphics, new printing techniques and innovation in convenient closures.

This report assesses the relative weights of all these trends and sets the packaging market in its context – social, economic, environmental and cultural. It examines this complex and dynamic market organically, from the viewpoints of suppliers and end-users and looks in detail at regional drivers, as developing markets increasingly shape the future.

Key features of this report

• A broad assessment of the size and dynamics of the global consumer packaging market and its drivers – economic, social, cultural and environmental.
• Coverage of trends by material – plastics, glass, metal, paper and paperboard, by region – Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific and by product sector – alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, food.
• Assessment of consumer attitudes to packaging and the manner in which hardening attitudes amongst end-users are influencing the packaging industry.
• Comparative analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the different types of packaging material, in easy-to-view format.
• An assessment of how emerging technologies are likely to impact on the future of the market and on individual sectors.
• Illustrated references to key product introductions and innovations
• Assessment of supply-side trends and profiling of major industry players and their strategies
• Identification of the key commercial implications of current trends and an assessment of the future outlook for the market.

Key benefits from reading this report

• Understand market dynamics and make informed assessments of the future shape of the market, particularly in terms of what materials and technologies warrant investment.
• Decisions taken now, in the light of full information and a complete picture, can determine future progress – in a rapidly-changing marketplace, the winners stay ahead of the game and anticipate, rather than simply react.
• Gain an understanding of how the market is likely to look as the current recession passes into memory.
• Understand niche as well as mainstream packaging sectors; there are many potential avenues of growth for smaller suppliers who apprehend consumer needs.
• Be in a good position to tie product to the best packaging, especially in terms of new product development.
• Take all of the above information into the core of your NPD programme and appreciate fully the payoffs this will have, not only in terms of profitability, but – and crucially – in terms of company and brand image
• Understand the packaging market, not simply in terms of data, but holistically. Markets, like consumers, do not exist in a vacuum, but are proactive. The shape of change in the packaging market is tied inextricably to broader social issues and, ultimately, to the fact that packaging is something consumers take into their homes and have a relationship with.

Is this the future in Cold Packaging?

Is this the future in Cold Packaging?

Los Angeles, CA -The use of insulated packaging is central to the survival of many e-commerce companies today.  Many businesses on the web today would be left flat footed, without a reliable cold packaging method.

Out with the old

Chocolate & confectionary, frozen meat, cheese and other fresh gourmet food companies have made a sizable impact on the food business landscape by raking up billions of dollars of business annually, selling their goods on the web.  These companies produce fresh and frozen foods that require some sort of protective insulation during shipping to prevent spoilage or melting.

Once a “standard” in cold packaging, newer materials have been developed that have rendered Styrofoam coolers as practically archaic relics of the past.

Space-Age Solutions

The use of reflective materials as insulators was developed by NASA in the 1970’s and 1980’s.  Such materials, in contrast to Styrofoam coolers, offer a space efficient method of temperature control. Wherein most insulators are by default space-inefficient, reflective materials are very, very thin. Styrofoam coolers are no exception in that their bulk is hard not to notice.

Styrofoam coolers present the following challenges: they arrive assembled: large & boxy they take up tons of space in the shipping area and warehouse. Also, such coolers are very difficult to dispose of, and in lieu of today’s “Green Movement” such products can tarnish the image of companies that use them to ship their products.

In with the new

Enter reflective materials…these materials have now been embraced by the packaging industry, wherein they have been used as components to boost the insulation characteristics of other materials.

Insulated Products Corp of Los Angeles CA has utilized such reflective materials to augment the insulation characteristics of bubble wrap materials. IPC has developed a material called CooLiner. Here, reflective foil materials have been incorporated with plastics to produce bubble insulation. Such a material is further converted into insulated bags, pouches, rolls and even pallet covers.

The CooLiner line of products offers the protection of Styrofoam products, like inserts, without the bulk and breakage as they are foldable and flexible.  Also, they allow shippers to move refrigerated products using something greener than Styrofoam coolers.

Even newer

Although effective, CooLiner products have a big brother: The GreenLiner.  Obviously “green” the GreenLiner is a high-performance liner that fits inside a carton; like the CooLiner.  The difference is that the GreenLiner is made of low density recycled foam that is packaged inside reflective foil envelopes.

The dual effect is spectacular. IPC has enjoyed abundant success with new clients whom approach them for options to replace their Styrofoam coolers.

Sustainable

GreenLiner is also space efficient as the panels fold down much smaller than the fully assembled size, so again, they save space for the sender and the recipient.  GreenLiner is also 100% recyclable, IPC has set-up an online-system wherein a party, anywhere in the country, can look-up a local recycling depots using their zip code where the materials can be turned in.

A better tomorrow

IPC has opened the door to a new way to package and ship. The various insulation products manufactured by IPC have a few common features: high performance, space efficiency and environmental friendliness.

When it comes to protecting refrigerated and frozen goods, small such as a box of chocolates or frozen meat or large like a pallet of produce, IPC has it covered. IPC’s custom in-house manufacturing helps them accommodate a host of custom size requirements as well.

A newer line of gel-pack replacement material is in the works. No surprise that it is green too.

Green Marketing for a Sustainable Future

Green Marketing for a Sustainable Future

Eco-Innovation and Green Marketing can lead to top line sales, differentiation and improved brand equity. The obvious assumption of green marketing is that potential consumers will view a product or service’s “greenness” as a benefit and base their buying decision accordingly. While green marketing is growing greatly as increasing numbers of consumers are willing to back their environmental consciousnesses with their dollars, it can be dangerous. The public tends to be skeptical of green claims to begin with and companies can seriously damage their brands and their sales if a green claim is discovered to be false or contradicted by a company’s other products or practices. Presenting a product or service as green when it’s not is called greenwashing.

 

Along with the now meteoric rise of green consumers, we see the rise of ecolabeling, green advertising and the importance of environmental reporting. This trend creates the opportunity for just about anything to be marketed as green, from simple packaging changes to products and services that radically reduce materials, energy, and waste. Green marketing has produced advances such as packages using recycled paper, phosphate-free detergents, refill containers for cleaning products, and bottles using less plastic. Today’s green marketing campaigns highlight the superior environmental protection characteristics of a company’s products and services, whether those benefits take the form of reduced waste in packaging, increased energy efficiency in product use, or decreased release of toxic emissions and other pollutants in production. Most observers agree that while some businesses engage in green marketing solely because such an emphasis will enable them to make a profit, other businesses conduct their operations in an environmentally-sensitive fashion because their owners and managers feel a responsibility to preserve the integrity of the natural environment even as they satisfy consumer needs and desires.

 

Indeed, true green marketing emphasizes environmental stewardship. Businesses practice being green when they voluntarily recycle and attempt to reduce waste in their daily operations. Practicing green is inherently proactive; it means finding ways to reduce waste and otherwise be more environmentally responsible, before being forced to do so through government regulations. Many businesses took heed of this growth in “green consumerism,” and new marketing campaigns have been devised to reflect this new strain of thought among consumers. Companies with product lines that were created in an environmentally friendly fashion i e , with recycled products, comparatively low pollutant emissions, and so on have quickly learned to shape their marketing message to highlight such efforts and to reach those customers most likely to appreciate those efforts an advertisement highlighting a company’s recycling efforts, for instance, is more likely to appear in an outdoor/nature magazine than a general interest periodical. The Journal of Advertising, states that “green consumers are the very segment most likely to distrust advertisers and are quite likely to pursue behaviors and activities that confound business people.” Corporate reputation, then, has emerged as a tremendously important factor in reaching and keeping these consumers.

Garden Accessories of the Future Are Green Walls – They Are Engaged, Self Sustaining, and Productive

Garden Accessories of the Future Are Green Walls – They Are Engaged, Self Sustaining, and Productive

A trend spotter, The Future Laboratory UK, has identified the garden of the future to be more engaging, self sustaining and productive than in the past. This trend is partly fuelled by the economic down turn but there is also a general desire to live more harmoniously with the environment. Organic living is no longer the domain of the unwashed. Meanwhile we are living in more confined spaces and have less access to our own private outdoors.

Garden accessories normally tend to lag behind social trends but remarkably there are some gardening products that have kept abreast of this social change and are accommodating the urban dweller’s desire to remain in touch with Mother Nature, despite the lack of space.

Gardening no longer requires an outdoor area; you do not even need free floor space. All you need is a vacant wall, enough light and a few Woolly Wally Pockets. The Pockets are a type of wall planter that allows most walls to become your very own vertical garden within a couple of hours.

Made from recycled plastic bottles the material conserves water. It also allows a plant’s root system to breath, thereby promoting healthy growth. But best of all it enables plants to be grown up a wall (without damaging the wall) and it is no more difficult to install than a book shelf. It is robust and looks great even before the plants have established.

Green walls, also known as living walls and vertical gardens were pioneered by Patric Blanc, a French botanist. He has made the vertical gardening concept famous. The advertising world is currently embracing his skills and engaging him to create various living billboards around the world. In fact London’s Athenaeum Hotel’s green wall has its very own Facebook Fan Page.

There have been various green wall systems developed in recent years in response to rising interest in this planting technique. Woolly Wally Pockets is one of the first systems that enables even the most basic gardener to construct a living wall without the need for specialist plant and green wall construction knowledge.

The living wall can be located indoors or outdoors and can be as small or as large as you wish. The wall planters come in three sizes and three colours to accommodate your
