SGP Partnership Webinar “Making a Difference with Sustainable Plastics”

The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) announced today “Making a Difference with Sustainable Plastics” webinar presented by Theresa Vanna of Primex Plastics Corporation. SGP is the leading authority in sustainable printing certifications for print manufacturers.


The webinar presents the latest information on sustainable plastics and their pros and cons. In addition, Vanna discusses the lifecycle of sustainable products and how to discuss sustainable products with vendors. The webinar is free and open to the public.


“I look forward to sharing information about sustainable plastics and discuss any misconceptions with the participants,” said Vanna, Primex Plastics product specialist and SGP Partnership board member. “Sharing information on the variety of sustainable plastics can help companies make informed choices about which product to use. During other presentations, audience members were surprised to find out how many different elements can create a sustainable plastic and how one needs to explore the total life cycle of the materials used.”


The SGP monthly webinar series is to help the printing industry, its suppliers and customers succeed in developing winning sustainability strategies and to support the continuous improvement of SGP certified print facilities.


“Primex works to meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future,” said Vanna. “Our support of SGP is part of our belief in a collaborative approach to a more sustainable future.” Vanna has been involved in SGP since its inception in 2008 and has served more than 10 years on the SGP Board of Directors.
