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.

WHY IS THIS SIGNIFICANT?

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.

HOW TO UPCYCLE YOUR BAG-IN-BOX

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFO

Please send no less than 10 bags at a time. The purpose of this upcycling program is to reduce our collective carbon footprint, so ship smart! Only Waiakea bags from the bag-in-box can be upcycled at this time. Please do not include other materials from your recycling bin. Waiakea bags have undergone significant testing with Nexus technology to ensure compatibility. Any other materials could pollute the upcycling stream. Mahalo nui!
