 NEW SIX-PACK CARRIER DESIGNED TO REDUCE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
 OF LITTERING INTRODUCED IN COLORADO
 WHO: Jim Cathcart, director of environmental affairs for ITW Hi-Cone (manufacturer of the new ring carrier).
 WHAT: Will be in the Denver area to discuss the new Tear-Tab carrier's environmental compatabilities, proper use, and distribution channels.
 WHEN: Thursday, Feb. 6, through Friday, Feb. 7.
 WHERE: Telephone or in-person interviews.
 WHY: Colorado distributors are among the first in the nation to offer the new environmentally friendly carriers.
 The Tear-Tab carrier was developed by ITW Hi-Cone to reduce the risk of wildlife entanglement caused by improperly discarded plastic packaging. The new carriers are designed to become brittle and fall apart in the sunlight. They are also recyclable, non-toxic and easy to use.
 Local bottlers, distributors and retailers are encouraging Colorado consumers to be environmentally responsible by breaking the rings as they remove each can from the new six-pack carriers.
 To schedule an interview and for information, CONTACT: Amy Wilson, 312-266-4528, or Wendy Langlas, 312-266-4550, both of Ketchum Public Relations.
