North America’s Largest Family of Indoor Water Parks Launches Multifunctional, Ecofriendly GreenBox™ Pizza Box

NEW YORK, NY – GreenBox™ is pleased to announce that Great Wolf Resorts®, North America’s largest family of indoor water park resorts, is now using the GreenBox™ pizza box in all 12 U.S. locations. The GreenBox™ is available at Great Wolf Lodge’s® pizza kitchen, Hungry As A Wolf®, which features hand-stretched, Brooklyn-style pizza, Italian sandwiches, signature pasta dishes and freshly-made salads.

Recently spotlighted on ABC’s Shark Tank, the GreenBox™ is a multi-functional, ecofriendly pizza box that transforms into four sturdy plates and a compact storage container for leftovers. Dubbed the “Perfect Pizza Box” by Business Week, the GreenBox™ completely eliminates the need for wasteful materials like paper plates, aluminum foil, plastic wrap and more.

Headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, Great Wolf Resorts® is a leader in family travel. Known for their massive, indoor waterparks, one-of-a-kind attractions, spacious accommodations and family-style dining options, Great Wolf Lodge® is dedicated to providing a unique experience and lasting memories for guests – all under one roof. As a company with a focus on sustainability, Great Wolf Resorts® has set the standard for the hospitality industry. Since 2007, their program, Project Green Wolf® has been an integral part of each resort’s daily operation – emphasizing an array of green initiatives, including energy and water conservation. Within their food & beverage division, all “to go” utensils and supplies are made from sustainable corn, palm, bamboo or post-consumer recycled content. Great Wolf Resorts® also has several composting programs in place, and sources locally-grown produce for their dining destinations whenever possible.

“Until recently, the one area we had not yet been able to apply the sustainability lens was our pizza box. Learning about GreenBox™ and bringing the company on as a supplier was the right decision for us, and the perfect match for our brand,” Chris Hammond, Corporate Director, Great Wolf Resorts®, Inc. said in a statement. “Now when our guests order one of our pizzas, it is served to them in a GreenBox™.”

“We are very proud to be working with Great Wolf Resorts®, a company that implements and maintains environmental sustainability standards that reinforce their culture and enhance their guest experience,” said Jennifer Wright-Laracy, President and Co-Founder of GreenBox™. “Our multifunctional, 100% recycled GreenBox™ aligns perfectly with these standards.”

GreenBox™, headquartered in New York, NY, is an innovator in the environmentally friendly food packaging industry. Their patented, multi-functional GreenBox™ breaks into plates & a storage unit for leftovers, while their Doggie Box and SliceBox offer eco-conscious alternatives to traditional food packaging. They’re a team that’s always thinking outside, and inside, the box… creating a whole new standard for the 21st century food industry.
