CASE STUDY

Global Hills Group developed innovative packaging product to replace styrofoam.

Case Study: Business Development project for logistics and packaging company based in Europe.

A European based logistics company engaged Global Hills Group to seek advice on expanding their operations in the United States. Global Hills Group incorporated their company and developed a business that was synergistic to their core warehouse and logistics business but also developed a unique packaging product that is set to revolutionize the warehouse, logistics and packaging industry globally.

Global Hills Group went into action by developing a unique sustainable and fully biodegradable product that has a multiplicity of uses to replace packages that use Styrofoam in packages as well as custom designed packages used by warehouses, e-commerce, medical devices and equipment, electronics, furniture, and more.

Our product is set to address this multi billion market by introducing a unique packaging solution that allow companies to ship their products to fully comply with States (with many more States expected to have restrictions on Styrofoam packaging.

Styrofoam Bans are Sweeping Across the Nation

Something amazing is happening around the country: cities and town are starting to ban Styrofoam. Throwaway polystyrene coffee cups, soup bowls, plates, and trays have gotten the boot. So have those foamy clamshell-style cartons fast food comes in. Even packing peanuts are going the way of the dodo.

 

Here’s a list of cities that have completely or partially banned Styrofoam/

  • New York City (and several other cities in New York)

  • Takoma Park, MD

  • Seattle, Washington

  • Washington DC

  • Miami Beach, FL

  • Freeport, Maine

  • Portland, Maine

  • Nantucket (City & County), Massachusetts

  • Minneapolis, Minnesota

  • Portland, Oregon (and several other Oregon cities)

  • Los Angeles County and San Francisco, California (and many other cities and counties in CA)

 

And more are in the works. It’s as if a big Styrofoam domino has started to fall, taking all the other dominos down with it.

Beth Terry, author of My Plastic-Free Life, wrote this terrific guide explaining how producing and using plastic pollutes the air. When it comes to the foamy EPS in particular, here are some other objections to using it:

It does not biodegrade. It may break into small pieces, even minuscule pieces. But the smaller EPS gets, the harder it is to clean up.

It is made of fossil fuels and synthetic chemicals. Those chemicals may leach if they come in contact with hot, greasy or acidic food. Yes, they keep your coffee hot – but they may also add an unwanted dose of toxins to your drink.

Animals sometimes eat it. Turtles and fish seem to mistake EPS for food, and that can kill them. Not only can they not digest it, but the foam could be full of poisons that it has absorbed from contaminants floating in the water.

It can’t be recycled. Some commercial mailing houses may accept packing peanuts, but for the most part community recycling centers do not accept throwaway foam food containers.

Global Hills Group developed a product that is Soy based with different density of Bamboo Fiber that is 100% biodegradable, fully sustainable, and durable to use for packaging and complies with the regulations set by the States which have banned Styrofoam.

Sample of our products below are going on production to start supplying manufacturers in every industry.

Global Hills Group invested in Research and Development with a manufacturing partner to create several raw materials made from Bamboo, Soy, Fructose and other ingredients to ensure complete biodegradability and environmentally safe packaging materials to replace Styrofoam used in shipping and packaging.

Global Hills Group successfully developed its Proof of Concept packaging made of Bamboo and Fructose material which is lighter than Styrofoam, more stable, completely biodegradable and environmentally safe. This sample is being used to package as much as three picture frames and can be used for larger products such as glassware, cosmetics, electronics, smart phones, flat screen TV, and furniture.
