Revolution Bag Product Lines Earn SCS Certification

LITTLE ROCK, AR – Revolution Bag, the first company to provide a complete line of EPA-compliant trash can liners that don''t cost more and perform just as well as bags produced with virgin resin, announced today that all its current product lines are now SCS (Scientific Certification System) certified, the highest standard for sustainable manufacturing.

“We’re excited to have this objective, third-party confirmation of the sustainable manufacturing focus that goes into each and every bag we make,” says David Rives, VP of Sales and Marketing for Revolution Bag.

Produced with at least 10% and up to 100% recycled material (post consumer resin), Revolution Bag can liners are made from a virtually endless quantity of consistent, high quality raw materials provided by parent company Delta Plastics. Using patented washing and processing technologies in a closed-loop system, Revolution Bag is able to use this post-consumer material, which would otherwise end up a landfill, to make its high quality trash can liners.

Beyond what''s in the box, Revolution Bag takes its stewardship even further by producing coreless rolls that cut down on cardboard waste, and packaging everything in recycled cardboard. The company’s EcoMax Select line provides optimum fit with their corresponding cans, ensuring the smallest environmental footprint possible.

Here is a current list of Revolution Bag’s relevant certifications and green credentials:


USGBC LEED

EPA
Every Revolution Bag can liner meets the government mandate for minimum post-consumer recycled content. If it''s Revolution, it''s compliant.
