Earthcycle Packaging founder to address sustainability conference


The sustainability conference is scheduled for the final day of United Fresh 2010, April 20-23 in Las Vegas.

The title of her presentation is “Communicating your Commitment to Sustainability,” according to a news release.

“I’m excited to share some of the information Earthcycle has gathered over the last six years with so many of my colleagues in the produce industry,” Boase said in the release. “It should be a lively learning discussion as we dispel some of the myths surrounding the concept of ‘going green’ and focus on using new technologies to be both environmentally responsible and profitable at the same time.”
