NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dubbed the "pizza box of the 21st Century," the "GreenBox," a multifunctional, eco-friendly pizza box that breaks down into four plates and a storage container for leftovers, will have Sharks seeing green on ABC's hit show, "Shark Tank." The episode airs this Friday, January 30th, 2015 at 9 p.m. ET on the ABC Television Network.
Made from 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard, the GreenBox completely eliminates the need for wasteful materials like plastic wrap, aluminum foil, disposable plates and more. GreenBox co-founders Jennifer Wright-Laracy and Ned Kensing will meet the mouths of ABC's "Sharks" this week – going tooth to tooth with some of the nation's most ferocious investors.
"Shark Tank," a top-rated, nationally broadcast reality series on ABC, offers entrepreneurs the chance to pitch their business ventures to "Shark" investors like Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, real estate magnate Barbara Corcoran and venture capitalist Kevin O'Leary. The series boasts a viewership of almost 9 million households per episode.
President and co-founder Jennifer Wright-Laracy describes their Shark Tank experience as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: "With our GreenBox design, our goal is to make the world a greener place – one pizza box at a time. National exposure on a hit show like ABC's Shark Tank will help us make this dream a reality – and to share our vision for a greener tomorrow."
"Shark Tank" airs Friday, January 30th, 2015, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET on the ABC Television Network.
