Hilex employees are truly some of the best people to work with day in and day out. Now, I know I may be a little biased to make that statement, but it’s true! Every day I see our employees working hard to create great and useful products. And every now and then, I see some employees go above and beyond the call of duty.
For example, recently a woman dropped off her plastic bags for recycling using one of Hilex’s Bag-2-Bag bins. Unknowingly, the woman had dropped her keys in the recycling bin. But thanks to multiple Hilex employees’ diligent work, we were able to identify and contact the woman who lost her keys.
The woman was extremely appreciative of our employees concern and effort to return her keys saying, “I can’t believe your company takes the time to try and get these back to the owners.” The truth is, Hilex Poly is more than just a plastic bag manufacturer and recycler. We also strive to be leaders in our community and set an example for others to follow. We live, work, and care about our communities and we want to continue the legacy of community service and going that extra mile to help our neighbors.
As we strive to be an example in both the community and industry, Hilex plans to attend the Keep America Beautiful conference happening this week. This is an excellent event for Hilex to attend, as both Hilex Poly and Keep America Beautiful share the similar goal of doing what’s right for our community and our environment! Check our blog next week for an update about our efforts at the Keep America Beautiful conference.
