ALEXANDRIA, VA - The National Wood Pallet and Container Association (NWPCA) released a new video at its 2014 Leadership Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, last month.

Titled "Pallets Move the World," the one-minute video aims to tell the story of how pallets impact our daily lives, noting that every day 2 billion pallets are used to move items from here to there.

Brent McClendon, president and CEO of the NWPCA, said, "Whether hardwood or softwood, international or domestic, block or stringer, wooden pallets truly do move the world and we are proud to help tell the story." That story, McClendon added, includes the environmental benefits of wood pallets that can be reused, recycled or converted to new products such as mulch or animal bedding at the end of their life cycle.
