FINALLY! REYNOLDS CONSUMER PRODUCTS DEBUTS PLASTIC WRAP TO SOLVE KITCHEN STRUGGLES

Apr 16, 2018

New Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap wins so big, 
it gets its own victory song composed by Jeff Russo

LAKE FOREST, Ill., April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sixty-four percent of consumers use plastic wrap at least once a week*, but more than half are frustrated with the experience. Known for uneven tears, unusable sheets and sharp teeth cutters, plastic wrap's bad reputation precedes it. Today, Reynolds Consumer Products is eliminating plastic wrap frustration for good with new Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap.

Why do 3 out of 4 people choose Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap over the competition? From beginning to end of use, this product is frustration-free thanks to its innovative features:

  • Built-in slide cutter ensures a clean cut, every time
  • Starter edge™ makes it easy to find the start of the roll
  • Each roll is automatically held in place to keep it from jumping out of the package during dispensing
  • Long-lasting tight seal keeps food fresh

The ease of using the product's built-in slide cutter to dispense a clean cut every time is worthy of a victory song. So Reynolds tapped Emmy-award-winning composer Jeff Russo to write one. Cue the fireworks.

"When we found out how many people were unhappy with their plastic wrap experience, we knew we had to find a solution," said Danielle Chandler, senior marketing director at Reynolds Consumer Products. "At Reynolds Kitchens, we think our latest innovation is a win worth celebrating in a big way … and what better way to celebrate than with the world's shortest victory song?"

Fans can hear the custom-composed victory song across all digital and Reynolds KITCHENS® social channels beginning in April. 

Reynolds KITCHENS® Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap (MSRP: $3.99 for a 225 square ft. roll) will be available nationally across mass, grocery and online retailers beginning in April.

REYNOLDS WRAP® FOIL AND HEFTY® PRODUCTS CONTINUE PROMOTIONAL PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CHICAGO CUBS

Apr 11, 2018

Lake Forest, Ill., April 11, 2018 — Reynolds Consumer Products is pleased to announce it will continue its partnership with the Chicago Cubs. Reynolds Wrap® aluminum foil, Hefty® trash bags and Hefty® party cups will be used at Wrigley Field as part of the new multi-year contract.

Fans will see the return of several sponsorships that engaged fans at the field and new additions, too!  

The Chicago Cubs - Reynolds Wrap® rain tarp will be used for the 2018 season and beyond. It was introduced in 2015 and on rain days, it is the largest physical “billboard” in the ballpark. Over the last three years, the tarp has delivered more than 450 million media impressions, including the August 2015 highlight when All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo jumped on top of the tarp in foul ground territory for a spectacular catch.

On May 22, Reynolds Wrap® foil is sponsoring the Cubs cap-shaped umbrella promotion for the first 10,000 early arriving fans. Also this season, a new 30-second video feature, “Greatest Catches,” will appear on the video board.

Hefty® party cups will be enhancing the “Cups Up” video board segment with fun, new footage that features Cubs players raising a Hefty Party cup to the crowd alongside live shots of cheering Cubs fans! Hefty branding also will continue to appear on every drink cup in the park, as well as on all ballpark cup holders.

Hefty® trash bags, the official trash bag of the Chicago Cubs, will continue to light up ballpark LEDs in bright Hefty orange after every Cubs home run as the sponsor of the “Hefty! Hefty! Hefty! Home Run Tracker.” The brand is excited to team up with the Cubs for a new neighborhood initiative called the Neighborhood Grounds Crew, which consist of a group of volunteers who will be cleaning up garbage with Hefty®-wrapped trash bins on streets neighboring the Friendly Confines throughout the season.

Lance Mitchell, CEO of Reynolds Consumer Products, said, “We are excited to be a partner as the Cubs begin the 2018 season – we are very proud of the Cubs success and happy to be a part of the experience at Wrigley Field. We’re not only pleased to be associated with the team, we’ve seen all the improvements to both the park and the community over the last few years, it gets better every year.” He added, “These types of promotions really add to the fan experience and resonate with so many of the people who choose our products … they definitely resonate with our employees.”

HEFTY® ENERGYBAG™ PARTNERS ANNOUNCE GRANT RECIPIENTS

Jan 4, 2018

Cobb County, Georgia and Boise, Idaho Awarded $50,000 Each to Implement Community Waste Recovery Programs

Lake Forest, IL - January 4, 2018 –

$50,000 grants have been awarded to organizations in Cobb County, Georgia (Keep Cobb Beautiful Inc.) and Boise, Idaho to establish the Hefty® EnergyBag™ program in their respective communities. The program offers an innovative approach to diverting plastics that are not currently recycled – such as chip bags and juice pouches – from landfills and converting the materials into valuable energy resources.

 

The two winning communities will provide collected materials to facilities utilizing advanced non-combustion conversion technologies, which can generate a liquid fuel, such as diesel. These technologies also have the longer-term potential to generate feedstocks in a closed loop system to produce new plastics, keeping resources in use and at their highest value and thereby helping create a more circular economy.

 

“Reynolds Consumer Products is proud to be a part of the Hefty® EnergyBag™ program,” said Dave Bryla, Business President for Reynolds Consumer Products. “Resource recovery of non-recycled plastics is a viable municipal process that can achieve many positive long-term environmental and economic results, including fewer tons of landfill waste, more local energy resources and less fossil energy dependence.”

“We look forward to working with each community as they implement the Hefty® EnergyBag™ program in their area in 2018,” said Jeff Wooster, global sustainability director for Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics. “Cobb County and Boise’s adoption of the program is helping expand efforts to increase plastics recovery across North America.”

“Keep Cobb Beautiful Inc. is excited about this innovative program and is looking forward to bringing plastic recovery options and technology to Cobb County residents,” said Kimberly White, executive director for Keep Cobb Beautiful Inc.

"The City of Boise is committed to sustainability. This program provides an important tool in managing our post-consumer plastics responsibly," said Catherine Chertudi, environmental program manager with the City of Boise. "The opportunity to keep more plastics out of the landfill through this innovative recovery program is very exciting."

Matt Maurer of Reynolds Consumer Products added, “Collaboration is key to the success of a program and we are very excited to work with the new program partners as they implement the Hefty® EnergyBag™ program in their communities”.

To date, Hefty® EnergyBag™ curbside and non-curbside programs, which include a 2014 EnergyBag™ Pilot in Citrus Heights, California, have diverted more than 17 tons of plastics from the landfill. The first full-scale Hefty® EnergyBag™ program launched in Omaha in September 2016. In its first year, the Hefty® EnergyBag™ Omaha program has collected more than 19,500 bags and diverted approximately 11 tons of plastics, the equivalent to approximately 8.6 million snack-sized chip bags, from the landfill.

JOHN CENA TEAMS UP WITH UNLIKELY CO-STAR—HIS MOM—IN TRIUMPHANT RETURN AS “HEFTY HEFTY HEFTY!” SPOKESPERSON IN NEW ADS FOR HEFTY® ULTRA STRONG™ TRASH BAGS

Jul 17, 2017

 It’s a family affair for the WWE Superstar and actor, who brings reinforcements to continue touting the ultra strength and ultra low price of Hefty’s best bag ever

Lake Forest, Ill, July 17, 2017 — He’s back. After successfully launching Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags with a creative campaign that invigorated the memorable “Hefty vs. Wimpy” theme and iconic “Hefty Hefty Hefty!” chant, Hefty® is welcoming back WWE Superstar and actor John Cena as the star of its latest Ultra Strong™ trash bag ads launching today. New to the multimedia campaign, which was created by Havas Chicago for the second year in a row, is his real-life mom, Carol Cena, who stars as herself to prove that mother knows best when it comes to buying the very best trash bags offering high performance quality at an ultra low price.

“Incorporating John Cena’s mom brings a fresh approach to a campaign that has helped energize and modernize the brand,” said Lisa Smith, Vice President of Marketing at Hefty. “Her performance adds a humorous twist to the ads consumers have enjoyed over the past year. It also helps reinforce the key qualities of the Hefty® Ultra Strong™ line they love, with features like Arm & Hammer™ Odor Control and Triple Action technology at an ultra low price.”

John Cena adds, “I couldn’t have asked for a better costar than my mom. She has an amazing sense of humor and is the epitome of a strong woman having raised five boys. Her comedic chops really shine through, and I’m excited for the world to see just how funny she is.”

The ads, which span TV, digital and social media, once again incorporate Hefty®’s trademark witty humor, brains and brawn to demonstrate the bags’ incredible strength and low cost in a memorable way. In “Mom Knows Best,” Carol Cena joins John in the grocery aisle to deter a shopper from buying a Wimpy trash bag. Carol uses a more physical approach on the unsuspecting shopper to suggest Hefty® Ultra Strong™ bags as a better option. A second spot, “Waiting Husbands,” features John explaining the benefits of Hefty® Ultra Strong™ strength and savings to three infatuated women, while their unknowing husbands are left impatiently waiting at the front of the grocery store.

“For this campaign, we knew we wanted to stay true to our original concept, which went away from a typical ‘kitchen-mess’ scenario and used pop culture relevancy to speak to Hefty’s audience,” said Jason Peterson, Chairman and CCO of Havas North America. “We’ve taken classic elements from the brand heritage and brought them to life in an edgier, unconventional way. This time around we used relatable tongue-in-cheek situations, like flirtatious women and John Cena’s real-life mom, to speak to Hefty consumers more authentically.”

DOW LAUNCHES GRANT PROGRAM TO LAUNCH ADDITIONAL HEFTY® ENERGYBAG™ PROGRAMS FOR CONVERTING NON-RECYCLED PLASTICS TO ENERGY

Jul 12, 2017

MIDLAND, Mich. – July 12, 2017 – The Dow Chemical Company

(NYSE: DOW) announced today it has partnered with Keep America Beautiful (KAB) to award two $50,000 grants for organizations to establish Hefty® EnergyBag™ programs in their communities. The program is an innovative approach to diverting non-recycled plastics – like chip bags and juice pouches – from landfills and converting the materials into valuable energy sources.

“The Hefty® EnergyBag™ program demonstrates Dow’s commitment to advancing a circular economy, a pillar of our 2025 Sustainability Goals,” said Neil Hawkins, chief sustainability officer for Dow. “These grants are essential to growing this important initiative and showing the power of a collaborative blueprint for reducing landfill waste and waste released to the environment, two critical global priorities.”

The grant application is open to municipalities, non-profits, materials recovery facilities and other qualifying organizations. Dow will provide grant recipients with the blueprint to develop a successful Hefty®EnergyBag™ program and will facilitate planning and implementation. Recipients will ultimately manage the programs and solicit involvement of key community stakeholders.

“At Keep America Beautiful, we look for innovative ways to promote and increase recycling in our communities,” said Brenda Pulley, senior vice president of recycling for Keep America Beautiful. “The Hefty® EnergyBag™ program provides a convenient way to collect plastic materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill and offers a platform to promote positive recycling behaviors.”

The grant program builds on Dow’s long-standing relationship with KAB and will be funded through the Company’s Global Citizenship Impact Fund, a unique way to unlock business value while driving social impact. The fund provides financial resources for business-aligned global citizenship initiatives focused on three key impact areas: access to clean drinking water, packaging to prevent food waste and post-consumer waste management.

“The Hefty® EnergyBag™ program is a true proof point for our efforts to redefine the role of business in society,” said Diego Donoso, business president for Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics. “By sharing expertise and resources with communities, we are enabling them to develop sustainable Hefty® EnergyBag™ programs in their backyards – a crucial step as we look to scale the initiative across the country.”

The first full-scale Hefty® Energy Bag™ program was launched in Omaha in September 2016 and has since expanded from 6,000 to 8,500 households. As of June 2017, the Omaha program has collected more than 13,000 bags of previously non-recycled plastics, diverting more than six tons of waste previously destined for landfills.

The Omaha program is based on the success of a 2014 Energy Bag Pilot in Citrus Heights, Calif. and is a collaborative effort between Dow, Reynolds Consumer ProductsRecyclebankFirst Star RecyclingConagra Brands and Systech Environmental Corporation.
