This will be one of the points that will be covered when Buckley participates in a retailer panel discussion at the Take it Back! 2003 Conference Feb. 24-26 in Alexandria VA.

“We will work with our suppliers to continue to increase the amount of post-consumer content to expand our existing offering of over 1 items” Buckley told Raymond Communications (College Park MD) sponsor of the conference. “We are looking to increase those numbers both in number of products offered but also total post-consumer content” he continued.

Staples will also work on post-consumer content in packaging Buckley said “first with Staples-brand private-label product where Staples has more direct control and input on product packaging specifications. The plan is to partner with other manufacturers to increase post-consumer content and reduce overall negative environmental impact associated with packaging.” For more details on the Take it Back!2003 Conference call 301/345-4237. —AO
