This year, every esteemed presenter and all the talented performers at the 82nd Academy Awards ceremony received a colorful, reusable bag made of DuPont Tyvek, courtesy of Earthwise Bag Company, Inc.
Earthwise, the largest reusable bag distributor in the U.S. was asked to provide a polypropylene bag to hold give-away items, and they decided to include a complimentary, colorful Tyvek reusable bag for each presenter and performer.
вЂњWe thought we would bring a little вЂgreenвЂ™ to the red carpet by sharing our new fashion bags made of DuPont Tyvek,вЂќ said Stan Joffe, president, Earthwise Bag Company. вЂњWeвЂ™ve had great response to these lightweight tote bags that are strong, portable, reusable and machine washable. And, when customers decide to dispose of them, theyвЂ™re completely recyclable. There is no other reusable bag material that has all of these features, and weвЂ™re excited to include Tyvek in our product line.вЂќ
вЂњRetailers around the world are making pledges to eliminate disposable bags from their stores,вЂќ said Alice Jarvis, DuPont Tyvek champion who spearheaded the Tyvek bag program. вЂњBags made from Tyvek fill a niche and price point that no other reusable bag can match. That opens up an outstanding opportunity for bag companies who are responding to todayвЂ™s environmentally-conscious consumer.вЂќ
