Laticrete International has shipped its first batch of Laticrete System materials in recyclable bags from its Hamlet, N.C., facility to Palmetto Tile Distributors in North Charleston, S.C. The new environmentally responsible bags are tri-poly fortified, as well as moisture- and puncture-resistant.

“Our customers are going to love them,” said Jason Goldberg, Palmetto Tile general manager. “They can leave the new plastic bags outside or in the back of a truck, and they won’t get ruined. Plus, they will keep our warehouse a lot cleaner,” he added.
