Important Facts 500 billion to 1 trillion single-use plastic bags are used every year Plastic resin production has increased from 14 billion to 120 billion pounds over the past 3 generations Only 3% - 5% of plastics are recycled* *Best of Life Magazine Feb 2009
Benefits When disposed of in a landfill or inadvertently littered, Earthwise bags will: Biodegrade into carbon dioxide, water and biomass Save valuable landfill space and extend landfill life Keep you ahead of environmental legislation Reduce the buildup of dangerous methane gas in landfill sites
100% Degradable Plastic When Earthwise bags are exposed to sunlight or heat, a two- step degradation process is triggered that allows the plastic to breakdown through oxidation into smaller fragments. Over time, these fragments further convert to natural elements such as carbon dioxide, water, biomass and minerals. Microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and algae will consume the smaller plastic fragments.
Completely Secure Meets all Federal Reserve guidelines Easy-seal closure – simply press and it’s closed Strong, tough material… practically indestructible Heat-welded seams exceed the burst strength of the film VOID-evident closure tape head welded to the bag for maximum security
Completely Secure VOID-evident closure includes features to protect against cold and heat tampering VOID-evident closure incorporates unique 2-color void message for instant tamper recognition Black saliva detection print in VOID message will disappear when exposed to moisture or saliva Sequential tracking numbers with large quick-read bar-codes for fast track/trace scanning
Why Choose Earthwise? Corporate Environmental initiatives or directives Position your company as an environmentally responsible leader (“we care”) It’s the right thing to do
