When clients of ours are recognized for making a difference in the world, it’s a real pleasure to share the news. On Thursday, Be Green Packaging hosted South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley at their new manufacturing facility in Ridgeland, South Carolina. The plant creates 175 new jobs in Jasper County (which, like most places in the U.S., can definitely use them). And it shows once again how green technology is leading the way in getting the country back to work.

Nikki Haley welcomes Be GreenBe Green makes sustainable packaging from easily renewable plant materials. Originally sold to food packagers like Whole Foods, this year they expanded their business to mass-market consumer packaging. Their new Gillette Fusion ProGlide trays garnered a Diamond Award at the 23rd Annual DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation.

As regular freePress readers know, FreeAssociates designed Be Green’s new website which their CEO told me recently “positions us perfectly….the Web site helped carry the day.”
