Empress Earth for Earth Day!

Celebrate the 46th Anniversary of Earth Day with Empress Earth Products! Empress Earth is a brand new line in the Empress Family of Products.  The Empress Earth Bagasse Products utilize what would commonly be a waste product from sugar production (Bagasse) to make a wide variety of sustainable products.

Whiteboards are much easier to read, don’t have occasionally piercing screeches of chalk, and are much easier to keep clean. After several weeks of constant usage, however, even a brand new whiteboard is subject to ghosting, a phenomenon caused...
