The Packaging of Pollution

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Apr 5, 2012 11:14:00 AM

From guest poster Albert Greenhut, of Engineered Materials, Inc.

Those who have followed my writing may have the inkling that I am fairly green-minded. I base my beliefs on many issues upon my ideas about how life should be lived as a member of the world community, including taking responsibility for your actions and showing respect toward others.

For my entire life I have thought of Los Angeles as the pollution capital of the United States of America. This has to do with the timing of the rise of the automobile and the city planning of LA itself. Cars were becoming popular and room for trains got squeezed out of the planning, leaving what was soon to become one of the world’s largest cities without much potential for public transport.

Packaging for Disaster - Intercept Packaging Field Test

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Mar 28, 2012 11:30:00 AM

Today's post is by guest writer Albert Greenhut of Engineered Materials, Inc..

There is field testing and then there are tests in the field.

At the Intercept Technology Group, we have run all our products through the gamut of industry-recognized tests. Our materials have performed well in these tests, but as a consumer I always keep a wary eye on the fine print, as all wise consumers should. Being familiar with these tests I can say that they are tough, but nothing compares to the real life tests.

We got a call from a guitar player in Thailand, telling us about a set of circumstances that wound up being an extreme field test for Intercept Technology packaging

Intercept Packaging Protection - Creative Uses in the Home

Posted by Joe Spitz on Mar 27, 2012 10:16:00 AM

I am curious to know if anyone else suffers from a love/hate conflict with home improvement stores. I love visiting my local home improvement store, browsing all the terrific items, finding products to solve immediate problems and gathering ideas for my dreams of more atheistically pleasing convenience.  My aversion lies in that there was once a time, not so long ago, when a home improvement store visit cost a $35.00 minimum. Now it seems to be $85.00. In fact, today’s purchase of two bags of lime, three small types of fertilizer, two cans of ant guard with tax totaled $87.50. This post is not meant to be a complaint, but is a perception based on my own experiences as a home owner for 26 years. More importantly, this story is about the changes I have made so that I frequent these stores less. Of course, most homeowners know that goal is difficult because the more things accumulated in our homes, the more items require maintenance, repair, and replacement. I have made the decision to protect my items so they don’t fail.

The Trouble with Corrosion

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Mar 6, 2012 9:01:00 AM

Recent unseasonably warm weather in our area suggests there may be a bad corrosion season ahead of us. Corrosive gases are more active in warmer and more humid weather. To help you prepare, we offer:

Our short video: Do You Know What You're Spending on Corrosion?" The Intercept Technology heavy duty barrier packaging is simple, effective and easy to use in comparison with other old-fashioned barrier products. This video will tell you how.

Packaging - Warmer Weather Cause and Effect

Posted by Joe Spitz on Mar 1, 2012 10:01:00 AM

Cause and effect, action - reaction, push - pull; however you want to delineate it, some sort of change will cause transformations, both favorable and detrimental. What brought this thought on, you ask?  I was executing my February home property inspection - a task surely effortless in this crisp 40 and 50 degree weather rather than in past years trouncing through feet of snow. This year’s winter weather has been a record breaker and unseasonably warm in New England. It feels as if we are living in Maryland or the Carolinas.

Packaging Hartford - MFG4 2012

Posted by Joe Spitz on Feb 20, 2012 10:45:00 AM

How refreshing! Hartford's Mayor, Pedro E. Segarra, told our group: “Hartford is fun.” Fun! He wasn’t complaining about the state of budgets and economic affairs within our glorious country, which is all that seems to be trumpeted today. It wasn’t “despite the economic shortfalls of federal allocation to states and cities...blah, blah, blah"; instead he proudly spoke of Hartford’s great and diverse restaurants rivaling the cuisine of other nearby cities like Boston, New York, and Providence. Hartford, CT, welcomes visitors with museums, luxury hotels, parks (Bushnell Park pictured), city walks, theaters, historical sites, free city transports, and “trained advisors” (essentially “security forces”), all within a short distance of the fairly new Connecticut Conference Center. “We will welcome you and your guest. All will feel safe and have fun enjoying our city... after a couple of days at the show, the local business owners will know your name,” claimed Mayor Segarra.

Packaging Solutions - Jump the Gun

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Feb 16, 2012 9:50:00 AM

Today's post is from guest Albert Greenhut of EMI.

This being an election year, we are hyper-aware of all the ways government impacts and affects our lives. The myriad taxes, foreign policy in the form of free trade agreements and import / export duties, even how private business interacts with the government, ongoing environmental debates, and so on.

Many of these ideas and changes have merit, but always seem to come with strings attached; some are just so convoluted and complex that it becomes difficult to determine who will be impacted and how. The view from the cheap seats allows me to ask, "what if a business could contribute toward solving many of these major issues while saving itself money and becoming more efficient?"
