Less Plastic Waste in Landfills

At Evolution Bags, our trash bags are made with post-consumer recycled (PCR) resin, which is a material made from recycled plastic, and manufactured in a closed-loop recycling process. PCR resin and a closed-loop recycling process help to keep over 100 million pounds of plastic waste out of landfills each year. Keeping plastic out of landfills has been a major goal of eco-friendly and sustainable companies, which is why reusable items have become so popular in the past decade. With our trash bags made of PCR resin, we can help reduce plastic waste in landfills.

Less Environmental Impact

According to Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), the production and use of Evolution Bags result in lower environmental impact across the board, compared to traditional trash bags that are not made with PCR resin. This lower environmental impact includes lower global climate change emissions, less depletion of energy resources, decrease in human exposure to fine particulate matter and ground-level ozone, and less impact on ocean acidification, ocean warming, and regional acidification. This means that our products are better for the planet and humans.
