At PJP Marketplace, we’ve always taken great pride in the communities we reside and work in. One of the biggest parts of our commitment to the community is making sure that we do business in a responsible way. Not just morally responsible, but environmentally responsible as well. For example, when we needed to build our state-of-the-art facility, PJP created a LEED Certified building that not only our people and customers could be proud of, but our surrounding community could be proud of as well.
But being environmentally responsible means more than just the building we work in. It’s going to take a communal effort to care for this beautiful planet of ours. For PJP Marketplace, that means we need to work with our vendors to provide our amazing customers with a wide range of environmentally friendly solutions. We’re committed to helping you make your business more green. PJP Marketplace has eco-friendly products of every variety. Fiber packaging,fiber towels and tissues, products made fr...

We’ve discussed many times before how invested PJP is in our environment. As a company that sells a lot of disposable packaging, it’s important that we offer our customers sustainable options to help preserve the planet that we live on. Packaging that is recyclable, compostable, bio-degradable, or make from recycled materials is an essential part of conservation, and more and more, consumers are becoming aware of this necessity.
A recent survey conducted by the Global Footprint Network asked 1,000 American’s from all over the country about their grocery spending habits. A little alarmingly, only about 41% of respondents reported being “Very Aware” of the resource constraint issues we are facing as a planet. However, 86% of those same respondents agreed that if they were aware that the use of renewable packaging would contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions it would impact their choice of what kind of packaging to purchase. Of the participants, women were by far more likely to be...

When you think about running a business, the first thing you think about probably isn’t how you’re going to dispose of your trash. Understandably so, as things like how you’re going to turn a profit are pretty important, but still, trash is a big deal. Americans produce an average of 4.3 pounds of waste per person per day. That works out to be about 1.37 BILLION pounds of trash each day, nationwide. And since a lot of people’s trash is disposed of away from the home, you better believe your business is going to be responsible for cleaning up some of that mess.
With all of that trash to deal with, it’s obviously pretty important to have a plan about how you’re going to deal with your customer’s and employee’s waste. Whether you’re a restaurant throwing away unfinished food items, or a hospital dealing with medical waste, you’re for sure going to need trashcan liners that can get the job done. The last thing anyone wants is to have to clean up a mound of trash that just spilled from a tra...

When you run your own business you incur a multitude of operating and maintenance costs. Among those, the cost to keep your place of business clean is the most expensive, especially if you're large enough to have your own janitorial staff. Even though PJP is here to help you save on the cost of your cleaning equipment and supplies, a huge portion of your cleaning expenses is labor cost. But never fear! Our friends over at GOJO shared a wonderful info-graphic made by the American Institute for Cleaning Services with us, and we wanted to pass that along to our wonderful customers. This info-graph should help you better gauge the actual cost of cleaning your business, and make sure your resources are being spent wisely. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!

It’s nearly August, and for many parents around the country that means one thing: It’s time to make sure your kids are ready to go back to school. (Apologies to the kids who aren’t ready for summer to be over yet)
So, what does back to school mean? Of course it means new clothes and school supplies, but it also means something less pleasant than all of that… New germs. That’s right. When kids go back to school, they go back to interacting with all the germs that thrive in a school environment. Illness is actually responsible for 144 million lost school days each year. The last thing you want is to send your child back to school, only for them to get sick and immediately have to miss time. Germs may be an unfortunate reality of the back to school season, but there are simple steps you can take to help protect your children from illnesses that will cause them to miss school time.
One of the simplest ways to combat infection is the use of hand sanitizers. Send your kids to school with a sma...

American’s are always on the go, more so than ever before. As technology continues to develop and becomes more and more integrated into our daily lives we all have become accustomed to convenience, and the ability to take our work with us wherever we go. With our cell phones and laptops, we are constantly accessible, checking emails, answering calls, texting, browsing the web and much, much more. Everything we can do at the office we can now do while on the move. With America’s work force now being constantly in motion, foodservice businesses are being forced to keep up. Consumers don’t just want their work on the go, they want their food on the go as well. As a result, the Grab-n-Go food industry has taken off in the last few years, bringing in $12.9 Billion in 2012. A staggering 94% of consumers, when surveyed, said that they believe that plastic food packaging adds value and creates a more upscale presentation for a food item. 76% of consumers say that the convenience of to-go packa...

Summer is in full swing here at PJP. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the trees around our corporate headquarters have come back to life. This is the time of year we live for. If you’ve read some of our older blog posts you’ve probably gathered that we’re not the biggest fans of winter, so now that the sunny skies of summer are here at last it’s time to enjoy them. And with the 4th of July right around the corner, we can’t think of a better way to enjoy the summer than with a big party for our friends and family. We can practically taste the hot dogs already.
Independence Day barbequing is about as American as it gets, and everyone wants in on it. So if you’re going to be hosting a 4th of July get-together, you’re going to need to make sure your party-planning game is on point. No one will want to attend a lame barbeque with so many other options out there, so you really have to bring it if you want to have the gathering everyone’s talking about around the water-cooler Monday ...

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up. And according to the Chicago Tribune, St. Patrick’s Day is the biggest drinking holiday in the United States. So odds are, operators who serve draught beer are going to pour a pint or two as part of the celebration.
So that consumers get the maximum enjoyment from those pints, it’s important to make sure they’re poured perfectly. Fortunately, Fergal Murray, Master Brewer at Guinness, has outlined a 6-step process to pouring the perfect pint. We believe his process, with minor adjustments, is fitting for any beer at any time of year. So if Guinness isn’t an option or your operation isn’t open this St. Patty’s Day, the process can still apply.
We’ve outlined Murray’s process below. It’s accompanied by a video featuring Murray.
Step 1: Select your glass. Make sure it’s clean and dry.
It’s important to select the appropriate glass for the type of beer being served. Most breweries have branded glasses specific to their beer. For those that don’t, here is a full g...
