Re: Garbage Island

Well McDonald's switched to Styrofoam serving containers, and one of the arguments they gave was that since it did not use paper it was better for the environment as it "saved trees."

I know we had our rep show us some new packing materials that are made from mushrooms. It was cool, but not good for our equipment that we ship as it is basically 80 pound computers and they need more cushion.
