#34 – WM’s sustainable packaging solution

HOUSTON – Sustainability was most important for LBP Manufacturing, a producer
of high-end packaging products, when it was designing a new single serve coffee filter.
To ensure they selected the right materials for the job — materials that could be recycled —
they brought in Waste Management’s Sustainability Services team to help develop the product.
Working closely with the customer, WM made it happen — an innovative product was produced
that was recyclable and could be marketed to customers who really care about going green.

“They helped us develop a holistic approach to evaluate the recyclability of our product,” said
Thomas Fu, director of global innovation for LBP Manufacturing. “WM’s comprehensive
approach was really, really useful.”
