"In our every deliberation we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." From The Great Law Of The Iroquois Confederacy. · Large Trash Bags: Minimum Total Recycled Content 80% Post-Consumer Content 24%. Saves Natural Resources Reduces Pollution. You Are Making A Difference™. If every household in the U.S. replaced just one package of 15 count trash bags made from virgin plastic with 80% recycled ones we could save: 79000 barrels of oil enough to heat and cool 4500 U.S. homes for a year 1440000 cubic feet of landfill space equal to 2100 full garbage trucks and avoid 29000 tons of air pollution. . Using recycled plastic saves landfill space and promotes recycling! We all know how important it is to recycle to keep unnecessary amounts of garbage out of our overcrowded landfills. By reusing plastic materials that have fulfilled their intended end use (called 'post-consumer recycled material') and turning them into recycled products like this one we play an important part in the overall recycling process. . Using recycled plastic saves energy and dramatically reduces toxic pollution! The process of manufacturing from recycled material requires 40% less energy compared to bags made from virgin plastic. This reduces the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere - and helps slow global warming. Processing crude petroleum into virgin plastic creates many dangerous chemicals. The 436 plastics production facilities in the United States emit over 37 million pounds of toxic air emissions and create over 2.6 billion pounds of production-related waste each year. . This pollution and waste is dramatically reduced or avoided entirely with trash bags made from recycled materials.
