HOW TO MAKE HOLIDAY GIFT PACKAGING ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE

 HOW TO MAKE HOLIDAY GIFT PACKAGING ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE
 CONCORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Will your holiday gifts be shipped this year in packaging that won't offend your environmentally aware friends?
 Steer away from "peanuts," foam inserts and bubble packs. Instead, ask the salesperson to pack your fragile glassware or delicate computer game in a box with one of the new paper-based cushioning materials. This advice comes from Ranpak Corp., a leading manufacturer of packaging products.
 These systems come as stringy, kraft paper loosefill or as crinkled paper pads. Just as effective as plastic in protecting products, they're being used by manufacturers and stores under such names as Eco- Pak and padpak.
 Best of all they're recyclable and biodegradable. When they're no longer needed, they can be discarded like any other product made from paper -- or used as garden mulch. There's practically no impact on the environment.
 Plastics, by contrast, use destructive chemicals in their production and, in the end, hang around landfills practically forever.
