BAG-IN-BOX UPCYCLE PROGRAM
While most people will be able to recycle their #7 used bag-in-box bags locally, we provide an upcycling program that gives each bag a new life for those that can’t.
Please use the recycling locator above to determine if your local recycler accepts #7 plastic.
We use modern pyrolysis technology to convert our bags into wax based materials as well as high-grade fuels. This in turn results in significant energy and environmental benefits, including reductions of up to 14 percent in greenhouse gas emissions, up to 58 percent in water consumption, and up to 96 percent in traditional energy use.
10 upcycled bags makes almost half a gallon of high-grade fuel that can be turned into wax for candles and other goods, char, energy to power machinery, and much more.
Conventional oil extraction can be environmentally damaging. By contrast, the plastic-to-fuel upcycling process takes certain products bound for the landfill and turns them back into a usable product using a clean, environmentally friendly and cost-efficient process.
