What is STRENGTH IN ACTION?
Canadians are becoming more conscious of the impact of their choices on the environment. GLAD® is on a mission to help Canadians waste better and waste less. Through the use of our smart solutions for compost, waste, and recycling, we’re helping divert 3 million tonnes of waste from landfills by 2030. We’re also working with consumers, governments, material suppliers, and retailers — to ensure that Glad® is a force for good in the world.

At GLAD®, we’re always working to find new ways of creating quality products that can help you waste more responsibly. All GLAD® bags are Guaranteed Strong*, which is why we’ve been named #1 Most Trusted Brand1 for Garbage Bags in Canada multiple years in a row. Our innovative ForceFlex™ technology uses a unique diamond texture to help prevent rips and tears making sure you get the job done, start to finish, leading to fewer wasted bags.
We’re on a mission to help divert 3 million tonnes of waste from landfills by 2030. That’s the weight of about 456,128 school buses! Diverting waste from landfills can lead to many environmental benefits, for example: more available land for things like farming, a reduction of methane gas production, and the conservation of non-renewable resources through recycling programs. We are leaders in compostable innovation, making composting accessible and easy for Canadians – because the more food that we compost, the less waste that ends up in landfills. We also manufacture with sustainability top of mind, right here in Canada.

Canadians are becoming more conscious of the impact of their choices on the environment & GLAD® is on a mission to help Canadians waste better and waste less.

GLAD® is committed to benefitting Canadian communities in tangible ways. We put our Strength in Action by organizing local community cleanups, and we work directly with municipalities across Canada to actively support change.
Our most recent partnerships with the cities of Peterborough, Brantford, and London ON on their new green bin programs will help divert food waste from landfill, a critical step toward reducing methane gas emissions. One of the biggest barriers to program success is early adoption and resident participation, so we provide free GLAD® samples and coupons for bags to help community members participate in and adapt to new diversion programs.
