Today we launched our campaign on IndieGoGo! At last!!! Here's the link if you want to check out our video and the scoop on  our first reusable product, the Pi Pan. 
We would greatly appreciate your support.

The Pi Pan is a reusable pizza container that we designed after learning that Americans throw away 3 billion (yes billion) pizza boxes every year. 

Today I also wrote my first ever press release. Hopefully you'll be reading this again and again as the word gets out.

Good News Reuse™ launches a funding campaign on IndieGoGo for a reusable pizza box
“everyone can use good news”

Good News Reuse™, a start-up devoted to reducing waste in the food and beverage industry, has spearheaded an online funding campaign on IndieGoGo. Founder, Susan Lopes, is counting on community support to raise funds for their first product, the Pi Pan, a reusable pizza box. With enough backing, Lopes will launch the Pi Pan, which was designed to replace the 3 billion cardboard pizza boxes thrown away in the USA each year.

IndieGoGo is an online “crowdfunding” website where entrepreneurs have an opportunity to present their ideas to a supportive community to raise seed money. People can show support by contributing as little as $5 or up to $25,000 or more, and be rewarded with perks from the creator. Good News Reuse™ has set their goal at $70,000, the minimum amount needed to fund the manufacturing of the Pi Pan prototype and samples. There is a 34-day fundraising window and the campaign ends on Monday, October 17, 2011.

When asked why we opted to launch on IndieGoGo, Lopes stated “You can spread the word quickly to a lot of people and, our company in particular, has a strong educational message to get out to the masses. IndieGoGo also allows you to promote your brand, not just a specific product, in a transparent way. We are excited to announce, from the onset, that we are partnering with MiiR’s one4one initiative for some of our perks. Each contribution for a reusable water bottle will provide clean water to a deserving person for an entire year. This is in keeping with the company’s long-range mission to give back to environmental causes.”

To learn more about Good News Reuse™ and the Pi Pan visit our campaign at: 

The patent-pending Pi Pan is made of thin commercial food grade stainless steel and is as thin as a reusable water bottle. It is reusable for 1,000+ times. It is BPA-free and does not contain other unhealthy chemicals.

Good News Reuse™ believes that the introduction of reusable products in businesses, institutions, and schools will make a huge impact on resource conservation. The act of replacing single-use products will also provide an opportunity to create life-long healthy habits, particularly among young children. Ultimately, Good News Reuse™ wants all pizza lovers to have a reusable Pi Pan and it will be available for purchase on their website.

“People are always shocked to learn that we throw away 3 billion cardboard pizza boxes every year in the USA. That’s enough to circle the earth 26 times. They are also surprised to find out that food-stained pizza boxes are not recyclable, only commercially compostable. That ends up being a lot of waste in our landfills,” says Lopes.

And on the final episode, we finally have Ichiro Ohgami, leader of the Flower Division, in the group as this episode, which is based somewhere halfway thru the game storyline. So if you haven't had the chance to actually play the game, the episode itself seem rather disjointed in terms of plot. Anyway, the whole point of this episode is that Ohgami is just as important to the group as he is to them.
