ST. LOUIS, April 22, 2014 (St. Louis Business Journal) -What happens when you start a business that shreds documents for customers, but leaves you with mounds and mounds of shredded paper? You start another business.

St. Louis entrepreneur Chris Miget knew shredded paper made great packing material, but when he and his colleagues discovered mixing that paper with water - and molding it and drying it produced stronger packaging material - they founded EnviroPak.

EnviroPAK is a start-up success story, but its best days lie ahead, and the finish line is nowhere in sight. The company was founded in 1995 by a team of entrepreneurs and engineers who saw an opportunity to provide world class packaging solutions that could be both cost efficient and environmentally friendly compared to industry alternatives such as expanded polystyrene (EPS) and other plastic packaging materials.
