Perf Go Green, a marketer and distributor of biodegradable plastics, announced that its 13-gallon kitchen trash bags, 30-gallon lawn and leaf bags and 39-gallon garage bags will soon be available for purchase through Do it Best’s 4,100 independent hardware stores.
“Do it Best offers a strategic new channel for Perf Go Green to grow our business through thousands of hardware and home improvement stores around the globe,” said chairman and CEO Tony Tracy. “We look forward to a successful partnership that will also help further the ‘go green’ movement, which is estimated to become a $500 billion market in the U.S. in 2009.”
Perf Go Green began shipping to Do it Best in mid-October. In addition, Perf Go Green products will be available through the co-op’s Web site, doitbest.com, beginning in November.
Perf Go Green products incorporate recycled plastics that are combined with an Oxo-Biodegradable proprietary application method to produce the film for its bags. The company says Perf Go Green products biodegrade within two years, decomposing into simple materials found in nature much faster than regular plastics, which can take hundreds of years to break down.
