Oasis Disc Manufacturing Introduces Carbon-Neutral Packaging


Feb 08, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Oasis Disc Manufacturing, a provider of CD & DVD manufacturing and packaging for independent musicians and filmmakers, offers a 100 percent carbon neutral CD (including its packaging) to its clients.



According to a release, the new Oasis Zero Carbon Footprint Digipak features the Oasis BottleTray: a flexible clear tray for CDs made 100 percent from water bottles which would otherwise be destined for a landfill or the incinerator, made to Oasis specifications by Sunlyte Packaging in Biddeford, Maine. It reduces carbon emissions by 88 percent overall compared to a jewel case (65 percent compared to a conventionally-trayed Digipak).

Just as importantly, the entire CD manufacturing, package, assembly and UPS shipping are now rendered 100 percent carbon neutral, thanks to carefully sourced carbon offset credits certified by Carbonfund.org. (Carbonfund was named the 2010 Reader's Choice Best Carbon Offset Provider by TreeHugger.) "I'm especially excited because The Oasis Zero Carbon Footprint Digipak has a triple value of reducing landfill use, plastic consumption, and harm to the earth's atmosphere!" says Oasis President and Founder Micah Solomon, adding, "As always, we're very passionate about putting out great independent content by our clients while finding new, earth-friendly ways to manufacture it." Oasis noted that its customers are already getting on the Zero Carbon Footprint Digipak bandwagon, including top-selling children's musicians and four-time Grammy nominees Trout Fishing In America. Group manager, Dick Renko says this long-time Oasis client is interested in "migrating our catalog and new titles to the Oasis Zero Carbon Footprint Digipak format. It's very much in keeping with Trout Fishing In America's long-running commitment to the environment." ((Comments on this story may be sent to newsdesk@closeupmedia.com))
