On occasion I like to spread the word about what I know to be beneficial regarding green products and services. For me it has to be tried, tested and truthful as I abhor anything that is unsubstantiated. Even back in the days of the Wild West there were snake oil vendors that promised everything and delivered a hoax. The same type of thing goes on today – we refer to it as “greenwashing”.
Nashville Wraps has joined a group of other wholesale merchants in a newly formed marketing group simply called “Green Packaging Group”. Not only do we know these products to be green as advertised, but we also know the core people who are the catalysts behind their products.
Like the Blues Brothers, Dennis is on a “Mission from God” when it comes to green packaging. He is the founder of the Global Guard brand and Salazar Packaging which is dedicated to totally green industrial packaging. Dennis is the leader of the green packaging group; but besides that, when it comes to being innovative and green, he is also all about practicing what you preach and doing what you say.
Distant Village Packaging
Rich and I go back a ways. I fondly remember many talks and walks with Rich about creating a way to bring real sustainability to both products and people. Rich is dedicated to helping sustain many distant villages that create wonderful retail packaging products out of nature’s excess.Rich is the founder of Distant Village packaging and has created both retail stationery products, gourmet packaging and retail packaging products from tree-free resources. Rick is also working on Pure labels, a totally green printed label.
Sharon is the founder of Eco-Bags and is its driving force to create natural packaging products made from biodegradable materials such as cotton. Eco-Bags Products, Inc. opened for business in 1989 with a simple goal: to produce high-quality bags at great prices so that “Reusable becomes a way of life.” ECOBAGS® was started with their Classic String Bag, a simple lightweight, expandable daily tote used in Europe for generations, long before paper and plastic bags.
It’s hard to talk about yourself. I’ll simply say that “green” and sometimes “unconventional” is a lifestyle, not a marketing scam. Like friends of mine in country music, I was green before green was cool. Nashville Wraps started in business in 1976 with a paper bag made from recovered paper, and we are one of the few companies still offering that product as well as thousands of others. Nashville Wraps® created the GreenWay® Trademark which is our line of true green retail gift and gourmet packaging products.
I’m sure many other fine companies will want to be a part of the Green Packaging Group, but they will have to pass muster, and Dennis is a tough examiner. So I believe that you can count on the companies represented as part of this service.
