GO GREEN + Giveaway

CONGRATULATIONS SANDRA S! Your entry for "Following My Life & Kids Library" blog got you the win!

Many of us are trying to live healthier lives and make "greener" choices for our families. GO-GREEN Packaging is helping us with those choices. 
Go-Green Objectives: 
  • Design food packaging that minimizes product waste and shrink.
  • Implement the 3-R's (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) of eco-friendly packaging into your product strategy.
  • Help reduce the environmental impact of packaging materials by using green solutions and materials wherever possible.
  • Engineer food packaging to focus on source reduction.
  • Minimize to the fullest extent the carbon footprint of the overall package.
  • Provide customers and end users with unbiased information in this complex new world of sustainable packaging. 
Their website has so much helpful information. It explains all those different recycle codes on containers and what can be made out of those recycled materials.
 GO-GREEN packaging offers a complete range of materials for today's rigid tray and lidding packaging requirements and upscale trends.
All companies that distribute food should really partner up with Go-Green packaging! They have trays and lids for a variety of needs.
I had the opportunity to try out the clear trays.
These trays are manufactured using 50% post consumer recycled 
PET, have excellent transparency and high gloss, and are non toxic. 
Best of all these trays are recyclable and can be reused or
re-manufactured to make new products. GO-GREEN's 
manufacturing technology saves 30% energy, has 
21% less CO2 emissions and reduces the overall amount of 
packaging.
I haven't thrown very many in the recycle bin either. My kids use them for their sandwiches and snacks and I will rinse them for the next use. They are great for storing leftovers in the fridge. I just cover the top with Saran wrap. You can use them for organizing your desk drawer or anything else. This is a very useful item that you can feel good about using. 


To keep track of all the awesome things Go-Green is doing to help the environment "Like" them on Facebook and "Follow" them on Twitter.


GIVEAWAY TIME
