SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Westpak, Inc., a world class ISO 17025 accredited environmental test laboratory with two facilities in California, recently announced a new Sustainability Division offering customers the following design services:                                              

  • Usage of the best material for the package system of the container design
  • Evaluation of the container closure system performance of recycled packaging  materials versus non-recycled packaging materials
  • Suggestions for no cost or low cost options to enhance recyclability

The purpose of this value added feature is to increase awareness of the steps we can take to improve our usage of scarce resources - often at little or no cost.  "This 'low hanging fruit' approach to sustainable living makes sense environmentally and from a business viewpoint as well; a win-win situation," according to Phil Cota, Director of the Sustainability Division.

The Westpak staff is enthusiastic about this new ecological component to their testing services.  "This is yet another example of how Westpak strives to offer outstanding service to each and every customer we serve," according to Wil Caday, Sustainability Division Manager.
