For some of us it is that glorious beginning to a season where we are anxious to see how our team’s off season acquisitions will fare against the rest of the big league. Others of us wallow in self-pity at Wrigley Field… either way I have always been captivated by the number of baseballs used during the course of an MLB.

Whether in business, or in our personal lives, part of doing the right thing these days involves increasing attention to sustainability concerns. With that in mind, we wanted to reshare some of our posts dealing with environmental and sustainability issues, in the world of packaging and beyond, beginning with our post defining the term "sustainable packaging" with the help of the SPC.
According to a recent L.A. Times article, Wasteful Packaging: Do consumers care?, fewer American consumers now believe they should be responsible for recycling packaging materials than they did in 2009. This seems counter-intuitive to me considering all the public discourse about packaging waste available on a daily basis. On Twitter and StumbleUpon, in blog posts and news articles, there is much ado about packaging and packaging waste. Driving through my neighborhood on trash pickup day I see evidence that, at least locally, people are recycling more and throwing away less.
