All Burnsville-Eagan-Savage Schools (District 191) started using Revolution Bag trash and recycling bin liners made from recycled plastic. Schools using the new bags have saved 25 percent on costs compared to past orders. Revolution Bags are made with more than 70 percent recycled agriculture plastic and are Ecologo certified, exceeding the Environmental Protection Agency procurement guidelines.
Nearly 20 farmers in Dakota County are participating in a program to recycle their agriculture plastic (e.g., bale and silage wrap). In the last year, more than 45,000 pounds of the plastic has been collected and recycled into Revolution Bags. By using bags made from recycled plastic, your school is helping keep Minnesota farmland clean and supporting agriculture plastic recycling programs.
Cole Papers, a local distribution company, gave a presentation on Revolution Bag at the School Recycling Workshop. Cole Papers will work with your school or district to get you started, including free samples to compare to your current bags. For more information about Revolution Bag, contact Maria McCarthy.
