RE: [GreenYes] Durable totes, pallets and Starbucks
Cardinal Health, which distributes supplies to pharmacies and hospitals,
ships their materials in reusable totes.  The totes they use (or at least
some of them) are made by Monoflo International.  Their web address is
http://www.monofloglobal.com/index.html .  I don't know much about the
weight capacity of their products, but it might be worth checking out.

Subject: [GreenYes] Durable totes, pallets and Starbucks



===================================================
Greetings GreenYes'ers, et. al.

REQUEST FOR SOURCING, ECONOMIC, AND CASE STUDY INFORMATION ON:

* DURABLE/ RETURNABLE TOTES and
* HEAVY-DUTY PLASTIC PALLETS

If you have information, case studies, economic analyses, etc. on 
durable reusable totes (as replacements for cardboard boxes) I would 
appreciate your forwarding them to me.  I am focusing on totes used 
for shipments in the 40-pound range.

As part of some work I am doing for Starbucks, we identified possible 
source reduction opportunities through introduction of return-trip 
totes.  Any information I can gather will be most helpful in guiding 
Starbucks' consideration of implementing such an option.

For a different application, I am also hoping to provide them with 
sourcing information on heaviest-duty plastic pallets.

While I am gathering this information from many sources, the GreenYes 
list-serve has always proven useful in turning up a few rare gems. 
Thanks in advance for your responses.
