Happy Monday Funday!

Pack Expo was super awesome; I will fill you all in tomorrow as I am up to my ears in emailing and deadlines.

BUT I have some wonderful news: I have been invited to speak at Sustainability in Packaging in Florida in February on my Recycling Report!!!

At first I thought it was a joke, but it’s not; check out the invite below:

Dear Chandler,

I am currently working on the program for Pira International upcoming 5th Sustainability in Packaging conference, programmed for February 22-24, 2011 in Orlando, FL. On behalf of the advisory committee (Oliver Campbell/Dell, Victor Bell/ EPI, Mickell Schultheis/Coca-Cola, Paola Appendini/Kraft, Alan Blake/Procter & Gamble and John Kalkowski/Packaging Digest), I would like to invite you to speak at the conference next spring.

Attendees of Pira International’s Sustainability in Packaging conference, now entering its fifth year, have come to expect topical, in-depth and technical presentations that capture the challenges and successes faced across the entire supply chain and that avoid the hype and bias that have crept into the ‘green industry.’ The 2010 program attracted more than 300 participants and received great feedback on the quality of presentations and diversity of view points represented.

Some of the topics to be covered in the 2011 program are:
§ Global trends and developments
§ Corporate social responsibility
§ Sustainable brand strategy
§ Regulations and industry standard
§ Government programs, policies and initiatives
§ Innovations in materials and design, future technologies
§ Supply network and sustainability
§ Energy alternatives
§ Extended producer responsibility
§ End of life management, waste stream and recycling
§ Tools for creating more sustainable products
§ Measuring progress: scorecards & metrics
§ Green marketing and eco-labeling
§ Communication to customers, partners and shareholders
§ Case studies and company stories

I’ve attached a list of speakers currently confirmed for the conference and I am finalizing the details of participation with several others. All speakers receive complementary attendance for the conference and pre-conference workshops and additional discounts for colleagues and customers.

Due to my tight deadline, I would appreciate if you could give me an indication of whether you would be able to join the program at your earliest convenience.

WOWZA! Time to get my A game on; its go time.

See you tomorrow!
