I follow the writings of marketing whiz Chris Brogan on a regular basis. Chris calls one phase of his business "Human Business Works", a title which resonates greatly with the way we think at Liberty Packaging. It's about doing what we can to help the customer and his or her business thrive. There are many like-minded folks in the business world whom we're delighted to count as colleagues and customers - they, too, feel the responsibility.

Kimberley, South Africa (home to the original DeBeers mine) was the second city in the world to have electricity, first installed in 1881. South Africa, more specifically Johannesburg, is now in an interesting position regarding electricity.
Fast forward to today. South Africa is the biggest consumer of electricity on the African continent, at 215 billion kWh (kilowatt hours) consumed each year, twice as much as Egypt consumes, 104 billion kWh, as of 2011. With an ever growing population and the biggest economic engine in Africa, these demands are surely on the rise.
Our colleages in South Africa, Rhino Plastics, put together this music video (Daily Motion link below) that subtly, though impressively, shows the importance of Intercept Technology heavy duty barrier packaging for the prevention of corrosion.
As we approach the warmer, moister summer months, when corrosion is more prevalent, let’s address this simple question: “what is corrosion?” I spent an evening browsing the web for corrosion definitions, some were specific, some in the middle with regard to complexity, and some broader and more profound. Here are two of my favorites:

We recently exhibited Intercept Technology Packaging at MFG4 in Hartford, CT, an event hosted and produced by SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers), which provided a bird's eye view of amazing and innovative technology in the fields of medicine, aerospace, defense and energy.

If you have been in the music equipment business for any length of time, you may know of the copper Corrosion Intercept string bag pictured at left. Intercept Technology is a Bell Labs innovation which protects products from rust and corrosion, mold and mildew, and static charges. Intercept enables this protection while not releasing any volatile chemicals. Your products inside Intercept will remain fresh and your customers and employees are assured not to have complex chemicals on their fingers from playing your strings or in their lungs from inhaling.
According to Spaulding, Dr. Dunn explained why the focus on "going GREAN" is important:

Efficiency is important. Having to do a job two or three times in order to make it right is a waste; it's also not very much fun either (you are currently reading my third draft). There are times where such redundancy is necessary. An example we at the ITG use to display this is the case of the armor-plated Humvee cabs.

What do little kids like? Loud horns, big locomotives, fast airplanes, cool cars, etc.
Anything that is big or fast or strong that pushes the limits of our imagination appeals to the inner child in all of us, some of us even let this inner child run wild and can truly enjoy “big boy toys”. That same philosophy applies to when you ask a child what their favorite animal is. You usually hear something like an elephant because it’s enormous, a shark because it’s scary, or a cheetah because it is fast.
