 NEW SIX-PACK CARRIER DESIGNED TO REDUCE THE ENVIRONMENTAL
 IMPACT OF LITTERING INTRODUCED IN MARYLAND
 WHO: Jim Cathcart, director of environmental affairs for ITW Hi-Cone (manufacturer of the new ring carrier)...
 WHAT: will be in the Baltimore area to discuss the new Tear-Tab carrier's environmental compatibilities, proper use and distribution channels.
 WHEN: Wednesday, June 3 through Friday, June 5.
 WHERE: at local Coca-Cola facilities and area retail stores.
 Also available for telephone or in-person interviews. B-roll on request.
 WHY: Maryland bottlers 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, nontoxic and easy to use.
 Area bottlers are encouraging Maryland consumers to be environmentally responsible by breaking the rings as they remove each can from the new six-pack carriers.
