Some Green Facts
- Green High-Density Polyethylene (GHDPE) is a renewable resource because sugarcane growth exceeds the rate of harvest.
- For every ton of GHDPE produced, 2.5 tons of carbon dioxide are captured from the environment. Conversely, one ton of polyethylene sourced from petrochemicals actually emits more than two pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
