KMG Digital Announces 100% Recyclable Packaging for Its Optical Media Products

ROCHESTER, N.Y. and LOS ANGELES, May 24 — KMG Digital announces the introduction of Eco-Friendly optical media packaging that removes over 98% of all plastic packaging components from the consumer waste stream. The new Eco-Friendly packaging is paper construction and delivers 100% recyclable storage containers that do not include polypropylene or polystyrene plastics. To further expand on this green initiative, KMG Digital has also reduced the environmental footprint of its optical media packaging for Kodak-branded recordable CDs and DVDs by using soy-based inks for package printing. KMG is the worldwide licensee for Kodak-branded optical blank media products and accessories.

According to Mike Golacinski, KMG Digital President and CEO, “Many competitive products are boasting about reduction of plastics while not addressing the fundamental issue, which is to eliminate plastic packaging that produces greenhouse gases and clogs our landfills. We’ve found a way to bring environmentally sustainable packaging to the category in a cost-efficient manner.”

KMG Digital is launching 10 new Kodak-branded Eco-Friendly packs:

CD-R 80 10 Paper Box Pack with 10 paper Sleeves – $3.99
CD-R 80 25 Paper Can Pack – $6.99
CD-R 80 50 Paper Can Pack – $13.99

DVD-R 10 Paper Box Pack with 10 paper Sleeves – $4.99
DVD-R 25 Paper Can Pack – $9.99
DVD-R 50 Paper Can Pack – $19.99

DVD+R 10 Paper Box Pack with 10 paper Sleeves – $4.99
DVD+R 25 Paper Can Pack – $9.99
DVD+R 50 Paper Can Pack – $19.99

DVD+R DL 10 Paper Box Pack with 10 paper Sleeves – $9.99

Brad Yeager, Director of Marketing, states, “Paper and cardboard are the most efficient materials to recycle. Plastics are one of the least efficient due to sorting, overseas transportation and re-melting. Many municipalities do not have the ability to recycle all the different types of plastic. Approximately 1400 tons of polystyrene are deposited into landfills everyday. KMG Digital wants to do our part to decrease waste.”
