11/30/10 - Beginning in January of 2011, Boise will be converting its composite wood core plugs to plastic core plugs. This change became necessary due to a tragedy that struck our major core supplier, which may disrupt our supply in the long term. As a result, we are making the permanent changeover to plastic core plugs.
In the course of this transition, we uncovered the following benefits that we wanted to share with you: Environmental superiority – The new plastic core plugs are made from recycled materials and are themselves fully recyclable High Density Polyethylene plastic (HDPE). Durability – No breaking or crumbling such as may occur with wood core plugs. Safety – Reduction in floor dust, potential slivers, and eye irritation.
