Hippo Sak 13 Gallon Tall Kitchen Trash Bags are made from recycled Ocean plastic. This Ocean plastic was collected from beaches in third-world countries BEFORE it entered the ocean to reduce pollution. Then this Ocean plastic is used to make these Super Strong & Environmentally Friendly Tall Kitchen Bags – the recycling process is how they get their gray color. They also have our patented PowerStrip® reinforced bottom technology, making them 10 TIMES STRONGER than similar bags. Just like all Hippo Sak® products, our bags are guaranteed to have no more leaks, holes or tears. Best of all, the collection of this Ocean Plastic has resulted in new jobs, allowing impoverished families to have work that provides food, shelter and educational opportunities that were not previously available.
So, feel good that you are helping turn the tide on ocean pollution & poverty while keeping your kitchen clean!
