I will be at Legoland this weekend. I'm hoping the food and the toliets are made of lego. How can you believe that capitalism is washed up when we have efforts like:
Unfortunately, I will miss out on the exciting opportunity sketched below. Reading through it, it is mildly interesting.
"Tony Tracy, Chairman and CEO of the environmentally responsible company, Perf Go Green (PGG) is on a mission to promote his green product line of recycled and biodegradable plastic products as a practical and viable solution to eliminating plastic waste from the world environment.
You can see Tony discussing his initiative in the award-winning documentary, FUEL, which premiers in Los Angeles on October 12. FUEL was the winner of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival for Best Documentary.
Tracy definitely doesn’t fit the typical CEO profile- he’s an entrepreneur, a former actor, wrestler, and designer of 15 patented household, exercise equipment and grooming products. He’s a unique guy, to say the least…

Green Advocate Tony Tracy Walks Down the “GREEN” Carpet at FUEL Premier- the 2008 Sundance Film Festival’s Winning Documentary
Los Angeles, Calif. – October 12, 2008 – Today, Green business advocate, Tony Tracy, Chairman of the New York-based biodegradable plastic company, Perf Go Green (PGG) will be among the many celebrities and proponents whose contributions in the fight for less fuel-dependent, cleaner, and less wasteful alternative environmental strategies have been documented in Josh Tickell’s FUEL. FUEL, the successor to Fields of Fuel won Best Documentary at this year’s 2008 Sundance Film Festival. FUEL premiers at The Crest Theater at 2:00 p.m.
Tickell, the film’s producer, uses film as a platform to explore and expose the connection between the world’s energy needs, oil prices, global warming, and government’s involvement to aid or in many cases thwart progress with regard to utilizing alternative, viable energy solutions.
Selected cast members also include: Richard Branson, Robert Kennedy, Jr., President Carter, and actors Larry David, Woody Harrelson, Julia Roberts, singers Neil Young and Cheryl Crow, among others.
In the documentary, Tracy is shown on the beaches of Santa Monica talking about the impetus that prompted him to become environmentally proactive and conscious - his daughter. Specifically, a conversation the two had about the long-term effects that producing plastic can have on the planet. “I wanted to create a product that would directly impact the way we live- from industry to end-consumer” said Tracy. “And, I knew that meant investigating sustainable production and manufacturing practices that would impact industry for the long haul”. Tracy set out to change the nature of how plastics are developed and broken down within the waste disposal industry.
Tracy launched Perf Go Green in 2007. The product line premiered at the March 2008 International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago, where its products received an honor for their design quality and innovation. The line’s current offerings include: kitchen trash bags, lawn/leaf bags, biodegradable drop cloths, cat pan liners, doggie duty bags, and commercial trash bags.
PGG is the first company to offer and market biodegradable plastic bags made from recycled materials- they are 100% ECO-friendly, non-toxic, and food-contact-compliant. The bags are Oxo-biodegradable. This is possible through pro-degradant, an additive that breaks down plastics into a compostable biomass. Oxo-biodegradable plastics degrade leaving behind no fragments, no methane, and no harmful residues- unlike hydro plastics, which create methane gases as they biodegrade.
From a cost/manufacturing standpoint, there is little or no additional cost involved in products made with this technology, which can be made with the same machinery and workforce as conventional plastic products. Oxo-bio is made from a byproduct of oil refining which is used for waste- thereby importing extra oil for production is not required- which is the entire focus behind FUEL.
While conventional plastic remains a familiar component of modern living, used in myriad packaging, household and commercial applications, the very strength and durability which make plastic such a useful and economic material, is creating long-term and irreversible damage when disposal is required. Perf Go Green is doing their part to introduce recycled and biodegradable plastic products as a practical and viable solution to eliminating waste through solution-driven product offerings and through education.
The company’s foundation, Go Green 21.0, will foster and promote green education initiatives around the world with the help of schools, communities, and individuals wanting to make a difference. For more information, visit: www.perfgogreen.com.
