Interstate Resources News homepage: http://news.interstateresources.com

Interstate Resources showcased its GREENCOAT corrugated wax alternative boxes at Walmart's 5th Annual Sustainable Packaging Expo on 6 -7 April 2010 at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center in Rogers, Arkansas.


By the second day of Walmart's 5th Annual Sustainable Packaging Expo, the ice inside Interstate Container Cambridge's patent-pending GREENCOAT box had melted, leaving the box with 6 inches of water.

"We filled up a non-leaking lobster box with ice, water, and drinks to impress upon people that a corrugated box with our an eco-friendly coating could withstand moisture," explained Jeff Cormier, Marketing & Sales Manager at Interstate Container Cambridge.

Interstate Containers' stand focused exclusively on GREENCOAT containers, which are 100% recyclable, repulpable, and compostable. The company exhibited poultry, seafood, and fresh produce boxes for Walmart suppliers from around the world.

Says Cormier, "This show helps us meet people from outside our normal industry and generate ideas on where to sell next."

The FBA-certified GREENCOAT boxes are cost-effective with proven moist condition tolerance and grease resistance. The corrugated containers meet or exceed most current wax box performance.

Pete Bugas, National Account Manager, has worked closely with Global Green in the Coalition for Resource Recovery. "We're looking to help processors of seafood, poultry, fresh produce and other refrigerated or frozen products progress in their sustainability efforts while saving them money in disposal fees.

"Interstate Container Cambridge was invited to the expo for the second year and passed a sustainability audit prior to acceptance. More than 175 exhibitors from across the globe participated.

The purpose of Sustainable Packaging Expo is to put Walmart and Sam's Club vendors in touch with packaging suppliers and resources to make product packaging more sustainable. By 2013, Walmart's Packaging Network aims to reduce the amount of packaging in its supply chain by 5%.
