Green MBA seekers who are interested in the business of making consumers' homes more sustainable may want to look to companies that specialize in this practice as examples.
For instance, Nextlife, a provider of green solutions, and Preserve, a company that specializes in sustainable products, have partnered to deliver a line of environmentally friendly merchandise.
Through this collaboration, Nextlife will supply post-consumer recycled polypropylene (PCR PP) resin to Preserve, which the company uses to develop select personal care, tableware, kitchen and food storage products. The materials used are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
U.S. retailers supply Nextlife with the PCR PP resins that the company uses after sorting, washing, drying and extruding the materials.
"Preserve is a great partner for Nextlife to showcase our unique offering of FDA approved PCR PP resin that is comparable to virgin resin in quality, consistency and price," said Ronald Whaley, Nextlife's president and CEO.
For Preserve, the partnership allows them to meet the desires of retailers and customers who wish to obtain products that are stylish and have less of an impact on the environment, according to Ben Anderson, the company's COO.
