RPA Launches New Website

A comprehensive industry resource on reusable transport packaging systems.

Arlington, VA: The Reusable Packaging Association (RPA) announced today the launch of a new website and logo in support of its mission to promote the expansion and value of reusable transport packaging systems.

The new site, www.reusables.org, went live Aug. 23. The site provides a broad array of industry information and resources related to reusable packaging, including interactive tools like sustainability and ROI calculators to measure and justify the implementation of reusables, and social media tools to facilitate discussion and interaction with industry experts, RPA members and other visitors. The site features industry news and resources, and RPA research and member news. The RPA also updated its logo to coincide with the look and timing of the new website.

“The new website is a strategic tool that directly supports the RPA’s key objectives, “ says Jon Kalin, RPA chairman of the board and sales and marketing manager for Rehrig Pacific. “It promotes the expansion of reusable transport packaging systems by demonstrating the value of reusables, providing a centralized source for recognized expertise on reusables, and communicating the collective voice of industry professionals within the reusable supply chain.”
