AGI Polymatrix DVD Case


The last time you purchased or rented a DVD, did it seem just a bit lighter to you? AGI Polymatrix, a division of Mead Westvaco Consumer Packaging Group and one of the largest producers of DVD cases, has re-worked and re-tooled its operations to take about 26% of the plastic out of its cases.

On a per unit basis, the weight reduction equals about a 16 gram savings, which is a bit more than half an ounce. Not a big deal, you say? Over 3 billion DVDs are sold annually in the U.S., which means the amount of polypropylene saved each year is potentially 6.6 million pounds, or 3,300 tons!
