Sugar Plums, Peppermint Patties & PMG

‘Twas the week before Christmas and at PMG, the kitchen smelt of cookies and ornaments hung on the tree.
Christmas music played loudly for all workers to hear.
The office was full of excitement and a whole lot of cheer.

Tasty treats covered the counters with little room to spare.
Employees ate so much candy, they didn’t even care.
Then all of a sudden, everyone heard a jolly noise.
Santa Clause was at PMG to see all the girls and boys.

After Santa arrived, the festivities were underway.
The PMG kiddos were ready to play.
Cookie decorating was a hit, and coloring too.
The kiddos were merry with so much to do.

It’s the season of friendship, joy and thanksgiving.
The time of year to spend with loved ones and partake in gift giving.
And as we reflect on another year ending and our accomplishments too.
We’re fortunate to have the amazing PMG family that we do!
Happy Holidays!

Did you know Americans spend more than $7 billion on wrapping paper each year?

The wrapping paper industry began in the United States in 1919 after two brothers, running a stationary store, had a few successful years of selling “fancy French paper” as gift wrap.

Today, more than 40 million tons of paper products are annually consumed by Americans and go toward packaging, wrapping and decorating items. That’s a lot of paper!

What happens to these paper products after use? Wrapping paper and shopping bags alone account for approximately 4 million tons of trash created annually in the U.S.

Even though gift wrap is a paper product, it’s so thin and inky that it only contributes a small fraction to the total amount of recycled paper each year.
