Eaton UNIBAG® Filter Bag Receives Green Leaf Symbol for Sustainability

CLEVELAND ... Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced that its UNIBAG® filter bag has received the Eaton "Green Leaf" symbol for sustainability. The filter bag's Green Leaf symbol will assure municipal and industrial users that the bag is environmentally friendly and provides substantial environmental advantages over standard filter bags because the felt used in the polyester contains 40-60% premium recycled fibers without optical white additives.

Produced by Eaton's Filtration Division, the UNIBAG promotes the efficient use of energy and reduction of waste in the manufacturing phase of the bag's lifecycle. Eliminating the bleaching of the felt during the manufacturing process reduces the effects of damaging chemicals released into the waste stream. Usage of this bag will help companies reach their sustainability goals.
