Sterling Switches to Bio-Degradable Packaging

Erlanger, KY., Issued April 1, 2014 – Sterling Cut Glass has advanced to a bio-degradable loosefill packaging (packing peanuts) for all Ground and Air shipments. The new packaging material is water soluble, therefore the “peanuts” dissolve in water for easy disposal. In addition to being water soluble, the new packaging material is kid-friendly, pet safe, non-plastic and non-petroleum based, made from renewable resources, compostable, static free and reusable (if not dissolved).

“Sterling has made the decision to switch to bio-degradable loosefill packaging in order to be a more eco-friendly company. In addition we know that disposal of the loosefill has often proved challenging for golf professionals and those who receive gifts, especially in an outdoor setting.” J. Brook Dyas, COO. All shipments with the new loosefill packaging will contain an informational card (made of recycled paper) with the packing statement letting the recipient know that the loosefill packaging is bio-degradable and water soluble for easy disposal.
