Helping Divert Plastic Waste From Our Landfills

ENERGY RECOVERY USING THE ENERGY BAG

Every year, Americans discard 29 million tons of plastic waste.1

To help change that, Dow teamed with municipal and industry partners to implement an alternative for plastic waste with the Energy Bag Programs. The Energy Bag Programs demonstrate that non-recycled plastic items - like juice pouches, candy wrappers and plastic dinnerware - can be collected and converted into an energy resource and helps identify a way to keep more material out of the landfill.
