In the early history of St. Patrick’s Day, wearing the color green became a sign of commitment, a pledge of honorable behavior. Sure enough, the tradition quickly spread and now, year after year, we commemorate the holiday in a simple way by wearing green articles of clothing.
At Hilex Poly, we are committed to that same pledge year-around by continuously making efforts to being a responsible and environmentally conscious company. Through our Bag-2-Bag recycling program, we are able to collect used plastic bags and film to create new products, including new plastic bags and other plastic goods.
This St. Patrick’s Day, I challenge you to take a pledge to recycling your plastic bags and other plastic goods at your closest retailer. The great benefit about this challenge is that it can be done anytime. All you have to do is follow these steps:
Step 1: Gather any plastic bags, films, packaging, or any other item that we accept in our Bag-2-Bag recycling program. Not sure what plastic goods you can recycle? We’ve created a checklist to help out!
Step 2: Drop off your recyclable goods at one of the 30,000 locations throughout the country!
Step 3: Pat yourself on the back! At this point, you have made sure that these items are appropriately disposed of and will be recycled into other useful materials!
Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!
