The Ruskin Group

What makes your products or services unique? What will people get from your business that they won’t get elsewhere?

Our packaging products are made from the most sustainable materials available anywhere in the world. Our paper-based packaging is sourced from up to 100% post-consumer papers. Our plastic-based packaging, including straws and bags, can be made with ECLIPSE, our revolutionary additive that makes regular plastics 100% bio-degradable and compostable, leaving nothing behind – no microplastics. And, our GARD and SERVO additives make our plastic products 100% anti-microbial and anti-bacterial.

What inspires your work?

Our company values reflect those of our employees, customers, and suppliers – we are diverse, inclusive, and sustainable. We design products that best meet the needs of our customers as well as our environment. Every day our products reduce the amount of non-recyclable waste in the environment while providing a great place to work for our employees. We help all of our stakeholders – suppliers, employees, customers, and communities achieve their dreams, needs, and goals.

How can people best support you or your community as we recover from the pandemic?

We have all likely learned some sustainable skills and behaviors before and during the pandemic. We can continue to utilize these skills, double-down on our sustainable habits, and find new ways to conserve our natural resources. The original sustainability catch phrase – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle – is as important and impactful today as it ever was. And, the 3-Rs are in order of impact – reducing overall consumption has the biggest impact, followed by re-using existing products and then, recycling what we cannot reuse.

Are there any unique events, initiatives, sales, or opportunities at your store or community that people should be aware of?

Yes – please ask for plastic products at retailers and restaurants that contain our biodegradable additive, ECLIPSE. Our ECLIPSE plastic straws are amazing – they perform just like regular plastic straws but are as environmentally friendly as paper straws and at a much lower price so everyone wins. The same is true for our ECLIPSE plastic grocery and shopping bags, stretch wrap, and everything else we make with ECLIPSE – they perform just like regular plastic, are as eco-friendly or more so than the paper alternatives, and cost much less.
