Three years ago, Be Green Packaging announced it was going to build the first plant fiber packaging manufacturing facility in the USA to environmentally sound, Cradle to Cradle standards.
Today we are proud to share that we just took a giant leap forward. Our state of the art, Jasper county, South Carolina plant has officially commenced pulping and we are now ready to begin production with a stated goal of being a 100% waste free manufacturing site.
Watch and listen to Warehouse Manager Kelvin Peoples and hear his excitement as we started to pulp July 8, 2014 at 3pm EST…. Our first production batch will be for Whole Foods Market producing the compostable containers that are used in their prepared foods department.
Watch for progress daily… as we celebrate sustainable jobs, supporting our innovative, forward-thinking customers and the local community.
