Tyvek® Fashion Bags are Swag at the Oscars

Every esteemed presenter and all of the talented performers at the 2010 Motion Picture Academy Awards 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 the give-away items and they decided to include a complimentary colorful Tyvek® reusable bag for each presenter and performer.

“We thought we would bring a little “green” to the red carpet by sharing our new fashion bags made of Tyvek®, said Stan Joffe, President.  “We have gotten such great response to these lightweight tote bags that are strong, portable, reusable and machine washable.  And, when customers decide to dispose of them, they’re completely recyclable.  There is no other reusable bag material that has all of these features, and we’re excited to include Tyvek® in our product line.”

According to Alice Jarvis, DuPont™ Tyvek® Champion who has spearheaded the Tyvek® Bag program, “Retailers around the world are making pledges to eliminate disposable bags from their stores.  Bags 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 today’s environmentally conscious consumer.”
