Hefty® OneZip® Products Offered Free at Nation’s Airports Expected to Reach a Year-End Total


Airports nationwide request supplies of America’s #1 selling one-quart slider bag to keep travelers moving through security checkpoints during the upcoming holiday season.

Pactiv Corporation, maker of Hefty® brand products, announced today that, by year’s end, it will have provided a total of 10 million Hefty® OneZip® one-quart slider bags to airports located across the United States to help keep travelers moving through security checkpoints and reduce wait times – especially during periods of heavy passenger volume typical of the holiday travel season. Hefty® OneZip® quart-size slider bags will be offered free at participating airports, while supplies last, to passengers who need them to comply with U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) 3-1-1 carry-on guidelines for air travel. The 3-1-1 initiative allows liquid or gel toiletries, three ounces or less in volume (3), to be stored comfortably inside a one-quart size, clear plastic, zip-top bag (1), and one bag per passenger (1).

“The overwhelming response we have received from airport managers confirms that the Hefty® OneZip® bag program has truly ‘made a difference’ for both travelers and U.S. airports,” said John Schwab, senior vice president & general manager, Hefty® Consumer Products. “By the end of this year, this program will have touched the lives of millions of travelers, enabling us to help ease the stresses of air travel.”

According to Schwab, three million Hefty® OneZip® quart-size slider storage bags are currently in the process of being shipped to airports across the country that have requested them for on-site distribution. These shipments will re-supply many airports that have participated in Pactiv’s Hefty® OneZip® bag program over the past 15 months. Distribution to airports will continue throughout the holiday season while supplies last.

Airports participating in the Hefty® OneZip® slider bag program include: Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Chicago, IL (O’Hare and Midway); Columbus, OH; Denver, CO; Detroit, MI; Dallas-Fort Worth, TX; Honolulu, HI; Houston, TX; Kansas City, MO; Milwaukee, WI; Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN; New York, NY (JFK and LaGuardia); Newark, NJ; Phoenix, AZ; Pittsburgh, PA; Portland, OR; Raleigh-Durham, NC; San Diego, CA; San Antonio, TX; Seattle, WA; St. Louis, MO; plus many more.

Hefty® OneZip® Travel bags are available in a 7-count, flat travel pack that can be easily stored in an outside pocket of a carry-on bag. Hefty® OneZip® Travel packs can be found in the “travel and trial” aisles at select mass merchants and drug stores across the United States. Hefty® OneZip® quart-size food storage and freezer bags also meet TSA guidelines and have a variety of uses for storing and organizing in the home.

All Hefty® OneZip® bags feature an easy-to-use slider that closes the bag in one easy step, without pinching, pressing or lining up the tracks. Simply slide the bag closed. Hefty® OneZip® bags have been awarded an Ease-of-Use Commendation from the Arthritis Foundation and are available at mass merchandisers and grocery stores nationwide.
