PulpWorks Set To Revolutionize Blister Packaging, Rid the World of PVC

PulpWorks, based in San Rafael, CA, designs and manufactures sustainable packaging, molded from 100% post-consumer waste paper, for the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry. The company has created a compostable and biodegradable alternative to toxic and harmful plastic (PVC) blister packaging. Its patent-pending "PW-Pack" responds to an urgent and compelling need for improved packages that embody the intent of a blister pack but have a significantly reduced negative impact on the environment while providing consumers with enhanced functionality and design features.

The following video features PulpWorks co-founders Paul Tasner and Elena Olivari, describing the benefits of the PW-Pack over conventional PVC blister packaging, which will be banned by large retailers including Walmart in the next few years.
