Chip bag light Reflector What Is it? The chip bag reflector is a double sided reflective surface that reflects sunlight and some heat towards or away from a surface. The reflective surface is made from recycled chip bags. How it’s made There are four steps that go into making the chip bag reflector 1.) Clean- The chip bags are placed (in bulk) into a vat of water and soap heated to 70 degrees. The cleaning tank spins and swirls the bags. 2.) Trim- The bags are then trimmed to take of the glue strips and opened up. 3.) bond- The bags are bonded together and folded onto eachother with a high strength bonding agent. The bags come out in a long sheet that is 200ft long and 27” Wide 4.) Cut- The bags are cut up into 28” long rolls. From there, they are packaged in bulk and sold to retailers. Benefits The benefits of using recycled chip bags are • Better for the environment- no litter • Better sales for chip companies- e.g. • Encourages recycling of all types. How the bags are collected The bags will be collected through recycling bins. One of our trucks would transport to a recycling station. This is what the recycling bin would look like Thank you for watching!
