Pitt Plastics Introduces New ECO Strong(TM) Plus Can Liners

Can Liners Manufactured with Post-Consumer Resins Provide Opportunities for LEED® Credits

PITTSBURG, Kan. – Pitt Plastics, an Inteplast Group Company, introduces a new and extensive line of industrial can liners, ECO Strong™ Plus, developed for environmentally-focused businesses and industries. ECO Strong™ Plus meets the can liner specifications of the popular Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) program, sponsored by the U.S. Green Building Council. ECO Strong™ Plus can liners are manufactured with a minimum of 10 percent post-consumer recycled resin and up to 60 percent post-industrial recycled resin.  A video about ECO Strong™ Plus is available.

ECO-Strong™ Plus is a comprehensive product line, ideal for diverse applications. ECO-Strong™ Plus can liners are available in clear or black linear-low density polyethylene (LLDPE); and in clear high-density polyethylene (HDPE), in a wide range of sizes and gauges. They are star-sealed for strength and feature coreless rolls for easy dispensing.

ECO-Strong™ Plus can liners are a boon for businesses that require clear can liners for security and safety, and want LEED® credit eligible products.  "Clear can liners manufactured with the required amounts of post-consumer resins as specified by LEED® have not been widely available at competitive prices for the industrial market," says Randy Orscheln, director, Janitorial/Sanitation Unit, Inteplast Group. "ECO-Strong™ Plus changes that."

Orscheln explains that an increasing number of businesses, universities, schools, restaurants, hospitals and government buildings are participating in green building maintenance and operation programs.  "ECO Strong™ Plus can liners are a recycled product they can rely on for consistent quality, performance and value," he says.

"We've put a great effort into the development of this product line and the sourcing of quality post-consumer resins that meet our high standards," he adds.  "Pitt Plastics and Inteplast Group sell extensively to distributors and businesses across North America. We believe ECO Strong™ Plus will become an important part of their sales offerings."
