What Makes Smart Tech Side-Gusseted Bags Eco Friendly
Smart Tech Side-Gusseted Bags are classified as eco-friendly because they are eco-manufactured, responsibly shipped, and recyclable.
Less Plastic Smart Tech Side-Gusseted Bags are engineered to provide over three times the impact (ASTM D1709) and twice the tensile strength (ASTM D882) of traditional low-density polyethylene (LDPE) film so less plastic is required to achieve the same strength. Plus the manufacturing process is so efficient, it yields 0% pre-consumer waste. Therefore, less natural resources are needed and less plastic ends up in our landfills.
No Fossil Fuels Smart Tech Side-Gusseted Bags are manufactured with 100% renewable energy from sources like wind or solar power; coal and petroleum are not used to power the buildings or equipment utilized in the production process. Therefore, there is no impact to the environment associated with extracting, shipping, and consuming coal or petroleum used in the creation of electricity.
Responsibly Shipped Smart Tech poly Side-Gusseted Bags are American-made in 5 manufacturing plants spanning the United States and they are only shipped within North America. Therefore, less mileage is required to deliver our products which results in less air pollution and a reduced carbon footprint.
Recyclable Smart Tech Side-Gusseted Bags can be recycled along with other LDPE #4 plastics where accepted. If recycled, less natural resources are depleted and less waste ends up in landfills.
