Brooklyn, NY, February 28, 2020 --( Returnity Innovations has been selected as a finalist in the Protective Packaging Design Challenge from the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC). Returnity’s CEO, Mike Newman, is set to appear on-stage at SPC Impact 2020, which will take place in Austin, Texas from March 31-April 2, 2020. Returnity, along with the other top 4 finalists, will present on-stage and take part in a Q+A with SPC and Ubuntoo. Newman will also sit on a panel titled, “Tilting the Balance for Reusable Packaging” to discuss the learnings, challenges, consumer acceptance and the tipping point for mainstream implementation as it relates to reusables.

Returnity is considered the leader in reusable shipping packaging, working with companies to build out solutions and empower the systems necessary for companies to shift to the new circular economy. They accomplish this by designing and manufacturing boxes and bags that are disrupting the wasteful, expensive, and environmentally harmful shipping packaging market as well as designing closed-loop logistics systems that make it easy, and cost effective, to reaggregate empty packaging.

“We are excited to take part in this important panel discussion about the future of reusable packaging and honored to be recognized as a finalist in the Protective Packaging Design Challenge,” said Mike Newman, CEO of Returnity. “The members of our team have decades of experience in supply chain and logistics, graphic design, sustainability and mechanical engineering. Our solutions are durable, waterproof, cost effective and low footprint, which makes them easily implemented. We are passionate about implementing successful programs that balance sustainability with consumer and financial targets, empowering supply chain and purchasing teams to adopt innovative new packaging models and ease the shift to the new circular economy. I look forward to sharing our insights at SPC Impact this year.”

The Tilting the Balance for Reusable Packaging panel will take place on April 1st from 4:15 - 5:15 pm and the Showcase event will take place on April 2nd from 1:30-2:30 pm.
