EcoPaper Receives Additional Purchase Order From Repeat Wholesale Customer

VENTURA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2013) -, a subsidiary of SGD Holdings, Ltd. (OTC Pink: SGDH), today announced that the company has received an additional wholesale purchase order for their 100% tree free sugar cane paper sold in rolls. This Purchase Order was submitted by a manufacturer who will convert the bulk rolls into office tablets with the end user being a government agency. 

EcoPaper is the beneficiary of repeat business from this manufacturer, having already completed a previous delivery, and is currently in discussions to provide them with a variety of other bulk roll paper products in various weights and quantities.

Harry Johansing commented, "The receipt of this additional purchase order from a repeat customer clearly demonstrates their confidence in our ability to fulfill their production needs and to meet their delivery deadlines. Creating access to a barrier free sale cycle in this growing marketplace is what I believe will make us a leading provider of 100% tree free paper products, both retail and wholesale, on an international level."

EcoPaper Tree Free Copy Paper is 100% Sugar Cane paper and is environmentally superior to both virgin AND recycled paper, but is indistinguishable. This Tree-Free paper is actually better for copiers than traditional paper because it is produced from sugar cane fibre instead wood fibre. Users will find that the dust that commonly builds up in copiers resulting in service calls is greatly reduced. The paper is made from 100% sugar cane waste or "bagasse," and plantation sugar cane fiber instead of trees from our forests. It is fully biodegradable and recyclable and was made through a sustainable, eco-friendly manufacturing process.

17 trees stay in our forests, supplying enough oxygen for 10 people; 6000 pounds of wood are not used; 8750 gallons of water are saved (that's 250 10-minute showers); 17 million btus of electricity are saved (enough to power an American home for 160 days); 2200 pounds of greenhouse gases are not emitted (the equivalent of parking your car for 20 weeks); and 460 gallons of oil are not used.
