Hefty® Sustainability Efforts

Cleaner Communities

The Hefty® brand is proud that our waste bags directly aid litter control and clean-up efforts that keep our communities cleaner.

Sustainable Choices

The Hefty® brand offers several sustainable product options:

We work with retailers to carry the assortment that aligns to local recycling and composting practices.

Environmental Regulations and Efficiencies

We adhere to all air, water, and power regulations in the communities we operate. In addition, we continuously work to reduce our consumption of raw materials and energy in producing our products, including reducing or recycling scrap generated during our production processes. We seek to ship full truckloads of product from our closest production facility to reduce fuel usage and carbon emissions. We offer recycling in our facilities as available in each community.

How2Recycle Label

To encourage recycling, we are a leader in implementing the How2Recycle Label, which is a voluntary standardized labeling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public. Standardized instructions are provided for both the product itself and recycling instructions for packaging on all Hefty® brand products.

Sustainable Innovation

Hefty® EnergyBag® program

Designed to complement current recycling efforts, the Hefty® EnergyBag® program establishes a way to collect otherwise hard-to-recycle plastics at curbside and then use them as valued resources. The program is a critical step toward a more circular plastics economy and a more sustainable future.
