Earth Day 2020 is something we will all remember, even if we're a little confused on which day today is. With most of the world's population observing stay-at-home orders, we're seeing an amazing impact on the environment. The canals in Venice, Italy are crystal clear, toxic gas levels have had a sharp decline, and pollution in major cities and remote villages have been replaced with clear skies. In a way, the corona-shutdown has given the Earth a much needed reset.
While the environmental impacts of the corona-shutdown is great for Mother Nature, it has also had major impacts on businesses and global economies. Some companies have closed and may never open again while others are thriving like never before. The thing about the American economy is that challenging times often give birth to innovative solutions from entrepreneurs and business leaders. We are already seeing factories pivot from things like clothing production and car manufacturing to high-volume mask and ventilator production. New innovations are already on the market like gadgets that let you open doors and use ATMs without actually touching anything to new methods of supply-chair production and delivery.
As new innovations develop, SSI Packaging is here to help solve your packaging and shipping needs while providing eco-friendly solutions that help protect the environment.

As we all do our best to stay home and continue with life the best we can amidst COVID-19, some folks find ourselves snacking more than ever. Maybe it's nerves, or maybe you're like millions of others who are working from home. Whatever the reason, we are snacking more and also finding learning new things. For example, did you know there are many types of "date codes" on foods? Here is a short explanation of the various types of date codes and what they mean for you.
"Sell-By" date tells the store how long to display the product for sale. You should buy the product before the date expires.
"Best if Used By (or Before)" date is recommended for best flavor or quality. It is not a purchase or safety date.
"Use-By" date is the last date recommended for the use of the product while at peak quality. The date has been determined by the manufacturer of the product.
"Closed or coded dates" are packing numbers for use by the manufacturer.
If you are a manufacture of food products, healthcare products, or paper goods (these days think toilet paper, right?), then let us help you solve the problem of accurate date coding for your production. SSI Packaging Group has been in the date coding business for decades and we are ready to listen to your needs and find the right solution.
Do you need cate coding equipment on a short-term basis? We rent coding equipment so that you can focus on fulfilling orders and we'll worry about the equipment.
