We operate with respect for the environment. We are proud that our waste bags directly aid litter control, prevention, and clean-up efforts.
We are proud members of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition® (SPC), an industry working group dedicated to a more robust environmental vision for packaging.
We offer products with recycled materials, including Reynolds Wrap® foil from 100% recycled materials, from a mix of pre- and post-consumer aluminum.
The Hefty® EnergyBag® Program is a groundbreaking initiative that collects previously non-recycled plastics - like the candy wrappers and juice pouches you've always thrown away - at curbside and converts them into valuable resources. See HeftyEnergyBag.com for complete information. In addition, Hefty offers Renew® trash bags, made from 54% recycled plastic; clear recycling bags, and compostable trash bags. We work with retailers to carry the assortment that aligns with local recycling and composting practices.
We adhere to all air, water, and power regulations in the communities we operate. In addition, we continuously work to reduce our consumption of raw materials and energy in producing our products, including reducing or recycling scrap generated during our production processes. We offer recycling in our facilities as available in each community for office and foodservice waste.
We continuously review our supply chain to optimize the number of trucks and fuel needed for our products to be shipped to customers. For example, we seek to ship full trucks, and seek to ship from our closest production facility whenever possible. For some product lines, we developed, tested, and implemented carton-less pallet packaging, replacing cardboard with a thin polymer wrap; which reduces both materials and energy to ship the product.
