Curtis Takes Sustainable Packaging to the Next Level

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 21, 2010) - Curtis, a leading manufacturer of beverage brewing and dispensing products, has partnered with distributor Unitel Packaging to revitalize its packaging toward a more sustainable offering. This change is very much in line with the Curtis company objectives of furthering environmental awareness and responsibility.

To help Curtis achieve this goal, Unitel Packaging turned to the Manufactured Packaging Products Group (MPP) for a solution. MPP has several locations nationwide, and is one of the largest manufacturers of custom and stock corrugated boxes in Southern California. MPP recommended using Envirokraft®, corrugated board made from 100% post-consumer recycled material. "We are excited to partner with Curtis and Unitel Packaging to provide our Envirokraft® 100% post-consumer recycled packaging. We are proud of the fact that we are one of the few manufacturers to offer this level of sustainable packaging," said Art Castro, Vice President of MPP.

Post-consumer material differentiates itself from recycled because its contents have already completed at least one product lifecycle. Non-post-consumer recycled packaging contains remnants or scraps from the production process instead of products that consumers have used and deposited in a recycling bin. For a truly sustainable option, post-consumer is recommended over standard recycled product.

Through this partnership with Unitel Packaging and MPP, Curtis will now be able to assure customers their packaging is sustainable above and beyond the industry standard. Brant Curtis, Curtis' Marketing Manager states, "Curtis has been a long time advocate for being responsible with the resources entrusted to us. Our partnership with MPP is just another example of the values that drive us as an environmentally minded company."
