Wilmington, N.C. – May 30, 2023 – Atlantic Packaging is pleased to announce that company President Wes Carter has been appointed to The Conservation Alliance board of directors. With a presence across North America, The Conservation Alliance harnesses the collective power of business and outdoor communities to advocate for the protection of our wild places. This includes supporting grassroots environmental organizations that contribute to the long-term health of outdoor recreation while helping ensure access for future generations.
"We are thrilled to welcome Wes to The Conservation Alliance board as we continue to expand our board composition beyond the outdoor industry while elevating the role our members have in protecting wild places and stewarding land and water conservation,” said The Conservation Alliance Executive Director Nicole Rom. “Wes brings a unique skillset and background to the board, from his experience in sustainable packaging and creating a more sustainable supply chain to launching A New Earth Project, and we look forward to his contributions as board member.”
Atlantic Packaging remains committed to supporting the intelligent transition to a circular packaging supply chain and a waste-free world.
