We at GreenDustries think that we should do all we can to take care of our environment.

We have only one planet “Earth” a beautiful blue planet, the only one known to sustain life in all the cosmos. All the research that was done and the missions that NASA launches to try to find another planet with the possibility to welcome the human race did not succeed until today no matter how many billions of dollars were invested in the process, Frankly we can do better.

Charles E. Cooke, deputy director of the Energy Institute at The University of Texas at Austin, in his, says that Congress has reached

“What amounts to a stalemate in its consideration of climate change legislation, and it’s not clear how long this self-imposed hiatus will last.” “Proponents of a cap-and-trade approach to limiting CO2 have failed to make a compelling case for adoption of a trading mechanism that establishes a price on carbon.

Likewise, opponents to cap-and-trade have created considerable doubt in the public’s mind about the cost of that approach, particularly what effect those costs might have on job creation and economic growth,” he continues. While the merits of cap-and-trade continue to be debated Earth keeps getting warmer, he says, and many in the scientific community believe this rise in temperature will cause dramatic changes worldwide at varying rates – not just the relatively rapid changes that already have been observed, for example, in the melting of glaciers worldwide and the Arctic and Antarctic ice shelves. “Reasonable people may disagree over what all this portends for future generations, but there is a growing consensus that significant changes are on the horizon,” Cooke emphasizes. So, given what we now know, he poses, what can or should be done about global warming before Congress gets around to dealing with the issue? In Cooke’s view the U.S. should adopt a “no regrets” approach to global warming. “Stop the finger pointing, stop waiting around until conditions force our hand, and start taking action now. There are things we can and should start doing something right away to mitigate some of the harm that a majority of the scientific community believes will result from the rise in global temperatures.” All levels of government should better understand the effects of increased warming within their local areas of jurisdiction, he explains. Many coastal communities know they can expect increased sea levels. Now is the time for them to begin planning what that will mean for residential and commercial beachfront property owners, as well as public parks, roads and bridges, and other public infrastructure. “Other areas of the country, already dealing with drought conditions, can expect to grapple with increased scarcity of water resources. Now is the time for local officials in these areas to begin assessing how water usage needs to be changed, particularly in agricultural areas,” Cooke writes. The point is, Cooke stresses, to start now. GreenDustries agrees that while our government officials debate policy, our Earth is in dangerous need of help. We each should do a part in preparing for what’s to come and finding solutions. We can’t wait to see how Congress handles the problem.

We need to handle the problem ourselves.

As much as governments will issue legislations and directives, nothing with change unless we consumers and industries will take a proactive action.

At GreenDustries we did not wait for the law to push us and long ago we took the initiative to combat environmental problems in our industry. With foresight, we developed our first fast-food packaging products; the PleatPak and the Magic Bag to minimize and/or eliminate many environmental and the industry’s problems. We make all our products with 100% recycled paper.

Our products being the champions of source reduction and has the smallest foot print and minimize carbon emission, energy and waste.

We took a risk in doing so as the packaging industry is not known for mind-blowing innovations and R&D. It is costly at first to make a change and driven by the bottom line most company will talk about environmental improvements but will do very little about it, if anything.

At GreenDustries we are very proud knowing that our products have a real and important lasting impact on helping to keep our planet clean and Green, we wish that other will follow or join us for a better tomorrow for us and our children.

“The PleatPak packaging is a perfect wrap for our FLOURISH Vegetable Pot Pies. Not only is it a conversation piece but also 
stylish, mod and good for the environment. It doesn’t take long to learn how to use it; even my kids
enjoyed practicing! We love the colors, which match, perfectly with our logo. They are ideal at walk around
venues and at farmer’s markets – where people enjoy easy-to-eat portable snacks.
