Packaging Sustainability Emphasized at Industry Keynote Event

Chicago, IL - More than 100 key packaging brand executives, suppliers, trade association and media personnel gathered at Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium November 10th to attend the 2nd Annual Environment Expo sponsored by CardPak Inc., a leading supplier of sustainable packaging for consumer marketers.

The event was held in conjunction with Pack Expo 2008 held at Chicago’s McCormick Place Exposition Center. The evening’s focus was on the packaging industry’s role in addressing the sustainability needs of the retailer, the consumer and the environment.

Attendees dined in the Shedd Aquarium’s rotunda among reef sharks, manta rays and an actual scuba diver. Tony Petrelli, CardPak president, spoke of the importance of environmental sustainability being the future of the packaging industry – and the future of our planet.

The keynote speaker, Michelle Jost, Director of Sustainable Practices at the Shedd Aquarium, highlighted the sustainable practices in place at the Shedd Aquarium and provided a fascinating insight to the different freshwater and saltwater exhibits. In closing, she challenged all guests to adopt small conservation habits to help protect and conserve water, one of our most precious natural resources.
