Old Glory's Red, White and Blue Goes 'Green'

Share Article

The Flag Company, Inc. has added another eco-friendly product to its line, this time with USA flags made from recycled plastic bottles. The flags even come in a recycled cardboard box.

The Flag Company, Inc. proudly announces the newest addition to its line of flags: "Green" USA flags made from recycled plastic soda and water bottles. In 2007, 12.1% of total municipal solid waste generated in this country came from plastic. Since the largest category of plastic is the container and packaging category, it is more important than ever to recycle from this category. The Flag Company, Inc. is very pleased to provide this new product as a means to help reduce the staggering amount of plastic that ends up in the nation's landfills.

The fabric for these "green" flags is made from 100% post consumer recycled material derived from plastic bottles. The material from the plastic bottles creates the yarn from which the polyester material is made. The polyester material is then dyed red, white and blue and made into flags. These "green" red, white and blue flags either have sewn stripes and embroidered stars or are fully printed. They are available now in limited sizes and can be purchased online at http://www.flagco.com.

In appearance, these "green" flags are comparable to a cotton flag and feel just as soft as a cotton flag. This is important to those who prefer a more "natural" look to Old Glory.

Moreover, these "green" flags are proudly made in America, as are all the USA flags offered by The Flag Company, Inc. from jumbo flags to tiny toothpick flags.

This new eco-friendly product goes along with another eco-friendly product of The Flag Company, Inc.: its Flagpole Beacon, the low cost and energy efficient down light for commercial and residential use.

Be "green-er" - recycle these flags back to us when you order your replacement.
