The World Star Award, presented in Dusseldorf, Germany. From a field of over 300 global individual entries, a panel of distinguished international judges in Tokyo, for the first time ever, unanimously selected Green Sustainable Solutions as the winner. We were recognized for the redesign of a customer’s package for polyester film shipping that resulted in a 34% reduction in annual spending – and the redesigned unit as only one pound of non-recoverable materials (a reduction from the previous 47 pounds). In addition, all items in the unit are recoverable and fully reusable.
