I recently attended a sustainable technology conference and during the lunch break, the lunch boxes, including the containers and utensils provided, were WORLD CENTRIC® products (see photo above).  This is a terrific example of a company making a positive contribution for the planet and also acknowledging the importance of protecting their brand with trademark protection.
