Savvy Green is recognized as the 2013 Environmental and Sustainable Packaging Award Winner. There is so much buzz about Savvy Green. We have received lots of awards for our packaging in the past 6 months and now it is time for us to brag. In Fall, 2012 we received printing and packaging awards from two US organizations and one Canadian association. Then in March 2013 we received the Gold Award from the Flexible Packaging Association for our Environmental and Sustainability Achievements.
In April 2013 we received a leadership award from PAC, the Packaging Association of Canada. Mary was quoted in their press release about the award. Here it is: Mary Allen, co-owner of Savvy Green reports, “We were looking for distinctive-looking, consumer-convenient packaging that could meet our environmentally friendly standards and also provide moisture barrier to prevent clumping of the powdered soap. The recyclable, zipper-reclosable Ampac No. 2 Pouch meets those criteria. It protects our product, reduces the amount of packaging material required to produce containers, is space-efficient in shipping, warehousing, and store shelf stocking, and is easy for consumers to open, reclose, and recycle. It’s also extremely attractive on the store shelf.”
At the April 2013 Natural Products Expo in London we were chosen as one of the three finalist for the best new product packaging award, and we were at the award ceremony. There was much excitement as the envelop was opened and the MC announced the winner; cheering erupted — I was so nervous mostly about whether we would have to go to the podium in our well-traveled clothes to accept the award! It worked out perfect, and we are so proud to be a finalist!
