foam mil spec packaging

When you turn on the news and see coverage about our soldiers, the first thing you think of probably isn’t about how tough it can be to send them the daily essentials that they need.

After all, it had only been 18 months since the company had championed its new eco-cred with the bags — the first of its kind that could be broken down in an active compost bin in as little as 14 weeks.

The move bummed out environmentalists, with many upset that SunChips would so quickly abandon its sustainability goals over fragile ears. || Read more
