Oakland The Use Reusables campaign, led by public agency Stopwaste.Org, has awarded $79,500 in grant funding to help six businesses replace limited-life transport packaging materials with durable, reusable alternatives, on a pilot project basis.
The grantees are non-profit MedShare (San Leandro, CA), Tesla Motors (Fremont, CA), Veritable Vegetable (San Francisco, CA), Americas Best Coffee Roasting Company (Oakland, CA), Straus Family Creamery (Petaluma, CA) and Shin Shin Foods (Portland, OR)............
.......Tesla Motors is eliminating corrugated cardboard and plastic foam packaging used for glass components of the Model S sedan and replacing them with custom reusable glass racks.
Veritable Vegetable and Straus Family Creamery are switching from disposable plastic stretch film to reusable pallet wrap for produce and milk distribution to select customers.
Americas Best Coffee Roasting Company is converting their delivery system from cardboard boxes to reusable plastic totes. Shin Shin Foods is replacing paper flour sacks with bulk flour delivery by rail to aluminum flour silos.
The grants were the first round of financial assistance provided by the Use Reusables campaign, a joint project of StopWaste.Org and the Reusable Packaging Association, with financial support from U.S. EPAs Climate Showcase Communities program.
Since its launch in 2007, the campaign has worked on-on-one with hundreds of organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, through training workshops, events and expert advice, supported by a suite of educational materials and a comprehensive website.
A second round of grant funding will open on November 15, 2012.

Why don’t we reuse bandages, too, and “Save the Planet” even more?
(BTW, did someone just mention recalling 400 products for potential salmonella contamination?)
oh crap. How about we stop giving away money to corporations? Why do leftists hate corporations but love putting companies on the dole?

“All your corporations are belonging to us!”
These handouts enrich some executives, companies go bankrupt and some of the cash gets funneled back to Democrat campaigns
