The Bagman Goes Green

These days you’ll hear all kinds of people and companies say that are “going green” to help save the environment. No doubt, many of these pledges are sincere. But there is no one we know who has actually done more along these lines then Ron Davis of R. Davis Enterprises.

Based in Lancaster County, PA, Davis (a long time client of 33 Dimensions) is commonly known as “Ron the Bagman” because of his longtime business of wholesaling plastic bags and other supplies for markets and auctions. About two years ago, Ron started recycling as a secondary service, but this aspect of his business has rapidly grown to be his primary focus. Ron picks up all forms of clear plastic (LDPE, ABS, PET, PP, twine, drip tape, and filed mulch from the farm) from agricultural and industrial locations and then brings the material back to his warehouse where it is baled and loaded on his trucks for delivery to a recycling/manufacturing center which provides R Davis with the plastic bags and trash can liners that he wholesales. This entire process is done in the USA and removes approximately 200,000 lbs of plastic waste from landfills or incinerators each month. The only current problem with this whole process is that demand for recycling has outgrown Ron’s current capacity to meet it.

R Davis is looking to make necessary upgrades to their infrastructure by installing a new horizontal baler as well as new loading docks and other improvements which will ultimately triple their current capacity so they can handle about 600,000 lbs of material per month. In order to help make this happen, Ron has launched an IndieGoGo campaign where he will give cases of his high quality plastic bags and/or trash can liners in exchange for donations towards his eco-friendly, efficient and environmentally sustainable operation in Central Pennsylvania and neighboring locales.

Please check out his Indiegogo campaign here or RonTheBagMan.com. Thank you in advance for your participation.

Common Questions

Why Do I Need a Website?

Simply put, it is the most cost-effective means of advertising. The Internet is revolutionizing entire markets, allowing all businesses, large or small, the same opportunities to market their products, services and information on the Internet in an effective and appealing manner.

Compared with attracting new customers through advertising or conventional marketing, websites are amazingly low cost and the possibilities are endless. Search engines, referrals and the vast linking mechanics of the worldwide web provide volumes of “foot traffic” unimaginable in a “brick and mortar” storefront setting.

So should I have a business website, even if my business is small and sells products I don’t think can be sold online?

Yes, if you have a business, you should have a website. Period. No question. Without a doubt. These days, there’s very little that can’t be sold over the internet. More than 20 million shoppers are now online, purchasing everything from books to computers to cars to real estate to jet airplanes to natural gas to you name it. If you can imagine it, someone will figure out how to sell it online.

That said, it’s not enough that you just have a website. You must have a professional-looking site if you want to be taken seriously. Since many consumers now search for information online prior to making a purchase at a brick-and-mortar store, your site may be the first chance you have at making a good impression on a potential buyer.

 


Happy 2015
