New York, NY, United States, 2007/02/01 - Design & Source Productions, Inc. - Thanks to sustainability initiatives by big players including WalMart, a small New York City firm finds its environmental division swamped with inquiries - DSNYC.com.
Design and Source Productions, Inc., announces that its environmental division, Chameleon, a project aimed at meeting growing market demand for sustainable packaging, is poised to explode. After three years of legwork in research and development and educating major market players, the division has finally arrived as a feasible business concern.
Retail giant Wal*Mart’s recent shift toward sustainability has had the small-but-mighty firm’s phones ringing off the hook as vendors scramble to meet Wal*Mart’s stringent sustainability requirements.
Chameleon (chameleonpackaging.com) works with a variety of sustainable materials – renewable and recycled plastics and pulps, bio-plastics, and a unique type of tree-free paper called TerraSkin – to produce packaging that aligns with brand strategies.
Environmental Director Nicole Smith comments, "We are pleased that so many retailers and brands are implementing sustainability in their packaging and using it as a tool to educate their consumers. Education is the key to making a big impact, and we are honored and proud to help facilitate this."
The company has been educating anyone who will listen -- retailers, designers, manufacturers, students -- about sustainability in packaging for the past three years. In addition to commercial outreach, Environmental Director Nicole Smith and CEO Laura Tufariello teach a senior-level class on Sustainable Packaging at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology.
Now those efforts are starting to pay off on the bottom line.
