Smart Tech Bags are manufactured in the U.S.A. with 100% Certified Renewable
Energy generated from sources like wind and solar power.

 

ENVIRONMENT

    Smart Tech Bags™ technologies are designed and manufactured to reduce the toxicity and amount of trash entering the waste stream. Greater and more reliable physical performance provides for confident choices in lowering gauge (buying thinner bags) and increases the likelihood of reuse. These bags, film and tubing items embody best practices for source reduction.


    Reduce / Reuse

    Using less is the best way to save landfill space and energy and to reduce greenhouse gases. For every ton of LDPE reduced or reused, energy consumption is lowered by 74 million BTUs. That’s a little more energy than is required to power an average family car for one year. You’ll also reduce greenhouse emissions by 0.62 metric tons.


    Recycle
    Recycled plastics use about two thirds less energy than virgin material because they don’t have to be transformed from their raw state. For every ton of LDPE recycled, 56 million BTUs of energy are saved. You’ll also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 0.46 metric tons.


    Smart Manufacturing

    Not only are products made with Smart Tech Bags™ technologies non-toxic and completely recyclable, their production employs best practices to lower energy consumption. Better still, the manufacturing of Smart Tech Bags™ yields 0% pre-consumer waste.


    Energy Consumption

    Manufacturing processes are energy intensive and almost all of the electricity produced in the U.S. comes from the combustion of fossil fuels like oil, coal and natural gas. Carbon dioxide (CO2), a primary byproduct of fossil fuel combustion, is one of the most common greenhouse gases (GHGs).


    Greenhouse Gases

    Greenhouse gases (GHGs), including Carbon dioxide (CO2), are recognized as contributing to global climate change. Over 20 billion tons of CO2 are generated through the combustion of fossil fuels alone each year.That is about twice the carbon dioxide (CO2) than can be converted by nature.


    Plastic in the Waste Stream
    Over two thirds of garbage going into landfills is theoretically biodegradable. In reality, relatively little decomposition ever takes place. Biodegradation happens when organic materials are exposed over time to the proper amounts of micro-organisms, moisture, oxygen and heat. Unlike compost piles, where organic materials are cut up, stirred and kept moist, waste entering landfills are condensed and entombed.
