Greener on the Other Side


I’ve been working for APR Allen Plastics Repair for a year and 4 months now. The last thing I thought I would be doing as Marketing Manager is writing a blog! Seriously. What can I possibly write about that people would actually want to read? I’m pretty sure no one has ever said that the topic of returnable containers is exciting, but I’m here to do my best to create content that has value to my readers and gets APR Allen Plastics Repair on the map!


After some thought, I came up with “Greener on the Other Side” as the name for this blog. This name definitely alludes to the idea of creating a “green” environment, which makes sense since APR is a full service plastics recycling company. Another play on “green” is the money that APR saves our customers by repairing broken plastic containers versus having to shell out hundreds for brand new boxes. APR repairs are about 30-40% of the cost of new containers. That can really add up to savings! Just the product alone, returnable containers, means that you can resuse the boxes over and over, whether for storage or shipping. In addition to being a sustainable resource, plastic returnable containers and pallets can also save your company money in the long run. And one more point, APR offers custom modification, so we can change the length, height or width of your standard size containers to fit your parts perfectly. The cost of modification services is only a fraction of what you’d have to pay the manufacturers to create a new mold for your custom size containers!
