Mondi Industrial Bags promotes Green Range
Vienna, Austria-based Mondi industrial Bags developed its Green Range line of industrial bags to help support the sustainability agenda of customers across multiple industries.
"Waste prevention, re-usage, recycling and composting will be the key words for sustainable packaging in the future," the company said in a prepared statement.
Mondi’s one-ply bag solutions, One and One Plus, significantly saves resources and waste by reducing packaging weight and volume compared with two-ply bags. The company also promotes its biodegradable valve bag with certified compostability, Terra Bag.
Furthermore, Mondi’s FSC and PEFCTM certified bags present clear labeling, and have built a loyal customer base since their launch in 2008. Both, the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and the PEFCTM (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) promote sustainably managed forests through independent third-party certification.
Lowe’s welcomes online affiliates
Mooresville, N.C. -based Lowe’s is aggressively courting online affiliates. The company announced an invitation to small businesses participating in online retailer affiliate programs.
“Lowe’s is committed to the communities where we do business,” said Gihad Jawhar, VP of Lowes.com. “We sincerely hope businesses will consider Lowe’s as a partner.”
Lowe’s program supports small businesses that refer online consumers to Lowe’s products for a fee. Affiliates interested in applying to work with Lowes.com should follow the directions posted here.
In a press release, Lowe’s said it also supports online retail tax fairness legislation and commends Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn on signing e-fairness legislation into law with hopes it will be adopted throughout the country. Lowe’s believes a change in the law could help communities with an increased tax base and create a fair environment for all retailers, the company said.
In light of e-fairness legislation, some online-only retailers have indicated they will terminate their relationship with affiliates in states enacting the legislation, a move that could put thousands of small businesses at risk. Lowe’s says it currently collects and remits sales tax for all retail operations, including Lowes.com.
