Hefty® Waste Bags New Media Campaign Thanks Essential Workers

Hefty® Diverts One Million Pounds of Hard-To-Recycle Plastics from Landfills

Feb 25, 2020

Today Reynolds Consumer Products announced a monumental milestone for its groundbreaking Hefty® EnergyBag® program. The innovative program, stemming from the brand’s commitment to helping create end-of-life solutions for plastic waste across the United States, has officially diverted over one million pounds of hard-to-recycle plastics from landfills. National Geographic estimates that as of 2017, 79% of plastic waste in the United States ends up in landfills, which includes hard-to-recycle plastics such as candy wrappers, packing peanuts, straws and foam carry-out containers. The Hefty® EnergyBag® program gives consumers in participating markets the ability to collect these hard-to-recycle items and see them converted into valuable resources rather than getting taken out with the trash.

“We are really proud of surpassing our ambitious goal of diverting one million pounds in just three years,” said Lindsey Walter, Director of the Hefty® EnergyBag® program. “We are grateful to the many people and communities out there who have embraced this program as something we can all do together to make our world a little bit better.”

In partnership with Dow and other community collaborators, the Hefty® EnergyBag® program was set up to complement existing recycling programs, allowing hard-to-recycle plastics to be picked up at curbside. Participants simply place hard-to-recycle plastics in the Hefty® orange bag, tie the bag when full and place it in their curbside recycling cart or bin. Once collected, the plastics are converted into valuable resources including fuel and new plastic products like park benches, composite decking and concrete blocks. The signature bright orange bags used for collection make it easy for recycling facilities to separate and forward the materials they cannot process, so the hard-to-recycle plastics don’t contaminate other recycling streams.

“We are grateful for Hefty’s partnership and their ability to help galvanize people so that we all can do our part to help minimize hard-to-recycle waste by converting it into valuable resources,” said Julie Zaniewski, Dow’s North America sustainability director for Packaging & Specialty Plastics. “We are encouraged by people’s desire to be a part of the program and the impressive growth it has seen thus far.”

Since inception in Omaha, Nebraska, in 2016, the EnergyBag® program has expanded to 13 communities across the United States, making it available to more than 500,000 households.

“Though the EnergyBag® program on its own cannot eliminate all the issues associated with plastic waste, we are proud to have created a mechanism that allows people to do their part in partnership with us,” said Walter. “We have aggressive expansion goals and are working to identify more end uses of the materials as quickly as possible.”

Consumers can learn more about the Hefty® EnergyBag® program, including whether their community participates, and can also sign up to request the program in their city by visiting www.heftysustainability.com.

THE HEFTY BRAND PARTNERS WITH HEARTWOOD TO LEVERAGE 3D INTERACTIVE IPAD APPS FOR MANUFACTURING TRAINING

May 2, 2019

May 2, 2019 – LAKE FOREST, Illinois, and SAN MATEO, California – Reynolds Consumer Products is piloting the first phase of a 3D interactive training iPad app as a part of their digital transformation vision in the workplace.  Armed with 3D “training on demand”— line operators, technicians and engineers can engage with the iPad “Virtual Line” app, accessing visual and interactive information to learn tasks faster, with fewer errors, and with improved knowledge retention — without disrupting the line operations or productivity.  This new style of learning is anticipated to result in increased machine understanding, improved safety, less machine downtime, higher yields, and increased employee retention.

Sponsored by Judi Buckner, SVP Business Transformation, this training application will be deployed for employees operating Hefty® trash bags lines. “I see tremendous potential to extend the traditional training classroom onto the factory floor and we chose iPad with Heartwood to help us do this, because iPad is both a user-friendly and powerful interactive tool. It’s extremely well-suited to our business objective. By transforming complicated work instructions into this 3D interactive app, we are providing our teams with valuable training on our manufacturing processes and adding value faster than ever before.”

At Reynolds, new factory employees train both in a classroom and on the shop floor before becoming certified to run a production line. Typically, for new hires who have never seen the equipment, machines on the production line have to be stopped for training. With the Virtual Line app, employees will familiarize themselves with equipment on iPad before entering the factory floor — preventing a costly loss of productivity. Instructors can explain complicated procedures using detailed interactive 3D simulations to make sure employees have the knowledge and confidence to succeed. After their initial training, employees will have ongoing access to Virtual Line training on iPad.

Reynolds partnered with Heartwood, an Enterprise Simulation & Training company, for this digital transformation vision. Heartwood solutions run best on iOS, taking advantage of powerful native platform capabilities such as augmented reality with ARKit. As an Apple mobility partner, Heartwood iOS solutions help fuel its mission to deliver operations and maintenance training apps to enterprises like Reynolds Consumer Products.
