Improvements in product protection barrier characteristics print surfaces and in some cases economics are causing companies to utilize "enviropackaging" in applications that go far beyond the "green" agenda. Four converters were cited by the Flexible Packaging Association Washington DC for outstanding achievements for specific packaging applications that are particularly noteworthy for their contributions to source reduction. They include: * Paramount Packaging for Procter & Gamble's Tide and Cheer refill bags. * James River for Heinz Pet Products' 9-Lives Meaty Morsels(TM) dry cat food resealable stand-up pouches. * Graphic Packaging for Andrew Jergens' Jergens® lotion refill pouches. * Printpack for Ben & Jerry's® Peace Pop(TM) ice cream bar bag.
