Hefty® EnergyBag® Program

The Hefty® EnergyBag® program is a groundbreaking initiative that collects hard to recycle plastics - like the candy wrappers and juice pouches you've always thrown away -  at curbside and converts them into useful resources. 

The Hefty® EnergyBag® Program is a significant step towards achieving positive long-term environmental and economic advantages, including new alternative energy resources and fewer tons of plastics ending up in landfills.
