Phoenix Challenge, TLMI Concentrate Efforts The Phoenix Challenge Foundation, a supporter of building flexo printing and graphic arts in education for more than 22 years, has united with TLMI to put their concentrated efforts into workforce development supporting the label and package printing industry. As the printing and converting industry continues to experience the well-known gap in its workforce it is more important than ever that the industry come together to develop new ideas and concepts to cre- ate a strong channel of incoming talent, according to the two groups. TLMI and the Phoenix Challenge Foundation are passionate about the sustainability of the industry and look forward to working together on the com- mon mission of facilitating programs that will help recruit new, sustain existing, and continue to develop talented employees and future leaders for the pack- age printing industry, the groups said in a statement. Wendy’s Collaborates For Sustainable Packaging Fast food restaurant chain Wendy's has collaborated with NextGen Consortium, multi-year partnership of foodservice industry leaders assembled by Closed Loop Partners’ Center for the Circular Economy, as part of its sustainable packaging strategy. Wendy’s joined NextGen Consortium as a supporting partner to advance sustainable packaging solutions in the foodservice industry, in addition to optimizing its own operations. As part of the initiative, Wendy’s will work with other industry leaders to solve the issue of single-use food packaging waste. The consortium has launched NextGen Cup Chal- lenge to identify new and existing cup solutions de- signed to optimize the hot and cold fiber cup used by multiple foodservice operations, includingWendy’s. Squarely Sustainable is Wendy’s four-pronged sus- tainable strategy designed to use less and reduce un- necessary materials, as well as use better and seek certified sustainable materials. Wendy’s is already concentrating on eliminating certain materials of concern and removing unneces- sary paper and plastic waste. The restaurant chain avoided the use of styrofoam in its restaurants from 2012, and also decreased the usage of fiber and plastic in various format such as fry cartons, straws and bags. Wendy’s, along with its franchisees, operates more than 6,700 restaurants across the world.
