Plastics and Protecting the Environment

SPI has contributed a special focus article, “Plastics and protecting the environment,” to the December/January issue of the IAPD Magazine (International Association of Plastics Distribution). The piece was put together by the magazine’s editors using material from the SPI Web site. SPI and the Operation Clean Sweep program are also listed in a separate box entitled “Resources to Help Your Company in its Efforts to Go Green.

The entire issue of the magazine has a theme of “Going Green? Think Plastics!” and is filled with other information of interest, including IAPD’s Environmental Guidelines, a Glossary of Sustainability Terms and results of IAPD’s sustainability survey of its members. One IAPD survey result of note : “13% of all respondents educate the public on the benefits of plastics” and the magazine’s editorial comment that follows — “If not us, whom? If not now, when?”
