Spotlight on Eco-friendly Packaging

I'm working on the first edition of the our eNewsletter, The Successful WAHM.  This edition will spotlight product packaging.  One of the most important decisions you will make about your business!  I thought I would go ahead and share this great source for eco-friendly packaging online, Nashville Wraps, here is the direct link to their Green Way packaging:

and they even offer a counter card (pictured above) you can download and print for your retail store or even cut out and include in your shipments!

We're looking for other sources of eco-friendly packaging (bags, boxes, filling, hang tags, labels, stickers, ribbon, etc.) to spotlight in the newsletter so if you know one or own one please leave a comment on this post of email us!

Success Secrets of 30-Something Moguls

A wonderful and inspiring article a friend shared with me this week.  I especially love the story about Kelly Flatley, who founded Bare Naked Granola-that granola is the BEST!!  I have always liked the packaging it comes in and how I could see the granola inside the package, so I was surprised to read that she was initially advised to stick with the usual cereal box format and that people wouldn't want to actually see the product.  She stood by her packaging decision though and inadvertently started a new packaging trend for cereal products!  Keep your eyes open for an upcoming post on the importance of product packaging for your business!
