Do you remember Hilex Poly? They are the plastic bag manufacturer based in South Carolina that expressed disappointment when a single use plastic bag ban passed in Seattle two years ago.
On Wednesday Hilex Poly was awarded the 2013 Society of Plastics Engineers Environmental Division's Award for Plastics Recycling Technologies and Applications. Which sounds more like the title of a textbook than an award for innovations in plastics recycling solutions and commitment to sustainability. The company received the award for its "Bag-2-Bag®" recycling program.
