ANNAPOLIS, Md., April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, in celebration of the approaching Earth Day on April 22, the new eco-friendly brand Evolution Trash Bags is announcing the first and only retail line of EPA-Compliant and UL ECOLOGO Trash Bags in North America. Offered in both a 13-gallon and 42-gallon capacity, Evolution Trash Bags are competitively priced, easy to order, and exceed all established environmental guidelines.
"Today's consumer is more and more environmentally conscious, yet they do not always want to spend the added dollars on costly eco-friendly products. Evolution Trash Bags solves that problem," says Jim Seerey, president, Evolution Trash Bags. "We have taken a household product used every single day by millions of people, and developed an environmental friendly, convenient and economical trash bag that are equal to or exceed name brand products. Our hope is that consumers will recognize the benefits of using these sustainable bags versus their current brand favorites, making them a staple in households across the U.S."
Made with 70% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) Material, the creation of Evolution Trash Bags is completed through the recycling of agricultural irrigation tubing following the crop growing season. The used plastic is transformed into SCS-Certified post-consumer resin known as PCR-Pro, and then converted into Evolution Trash Bags.
Aside from being EPA-Compliant and UL ECOLOGO certified, Evolution Trash Bags have an array of additional benefits including:
- Partnership with 1% for the Planet – For every sale, Evolution Trash Bags donates 1% of the revenue to the nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the environment
- Reduces Waste – The brand keeps over 100 million pounds of plastic waste out of landfills each year
- Environmentally Friendly* – Compared to trash bags made without PCR, Evolution Trash Bags result in 37% lower global climate change emission, 31% less impact on ocean warming and a 50% decrease in human exposure to fine particulate matter
- Exceeds Expectations – Every Evolution Trash Bag product exceeds the Environmental Protection Agency mandate for minimum post-consumer recycled (PCR) content by an astounding 700%
To help encourage consumers to give back this Earth day, Evolution Trash Bags is offering a 25 percent off coupon code – EVOEARTH – redeemable at checkout from April 20 – April 23. Head to Amazon.com to purchase and invest in the environment.

*Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Study of 100,000 trash bags proves that production of trash bags made with 70% post-consumer recycled content results in lower environmental impacts when compared to virgin resin trash bags made without recycled content. Environmental Preferable Products (EPP) and services have a lesser or reduced negative effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products or services that serve the same purpose. This comparison applies to raw materials, manufacturing, packaging, distribution use, reuse, operation, maintenance, and disposal. Environmental Preferable Products possess more than one environmentally friendly attribute.
