Read the full story at Supermarket News.

Supercenter and grocery retailer Meijer has teamed with Dow to roll out a new paving technique using recycled plastic bags to create a more durable parking lot for Meijer’s Holland, Mich. supercenter. This recycled polymer modified asphalt (RPMA) parking lot is a three-phase pilot project that used approximately 12,500 pounds of post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR), which is the equivalent weight of 944,000 plastic grocery bags. 

This project brings recycled plastic bags full circle, and also represents a long-term collaboration between the two Michigan companies and their mission of working toward a more sustainable future.
