Dow Teams Up With Keep America Beautiful To Reduce Non-Recyclable Plastics
The Dow Chemical Company is a part of the DowDupont Holding Company (DWDP), a business that is focused on agriculture, materials science and specialty product sectors that will lead their respective industries through productive, science-based innovation to meet the needs of customers and help solve global challenges.
In another one of The Dow Chemical Company’s attempts to help better the world in which we live, the company has partnered up with Keep America Beautiful, a nonprofit, to award $100,000 in grants for organizations to establishHefty® EnergyBag™ programs within their communities. This is just another step towards The Dow Chemical Company fulfilling its 2025 Sustainability Goals.
The program works to change plastics that cannot be recycled (chip bags, juice pouches, etc.) into valuable energy resources instead of ending up in landfills. As of February 2018, the program which was started in 2014, has altered over 24 tons of plastics from landfills.
Last year, Dow awarded organizations in Cobb County, Georgia and City of Boise, Idaho two $50,000 grants to establish Hefty® EnergyBag™ programs in their communities.
Grant applications for the program are opened until June 15 to nonprofits, materials recovery facililities, municipalities, and other qualifying organizations.
