Color Scents® Scented garbage bags from Berry Global and Microban

Color Scents is a modern household products brand that relates, understands, and communicates authentically with its customers. Cultivated and driven to solve everyday home challenges in a beautiful way, Color Scents is a friend (and hero, when needed) and can be counted on for life’s toughest messes with the science of strength.

Color Scents trash bags are a product of Berry Global, a manufacturer and marketer of plastic packaging products. Berry is a global leader in plastic recycling, sustainability, and community engagement partnerships.

Microban International and Berry Global announced a partnership to launch a line of Color Scents scented trash bags with built-in antimicrobial technology that hit Walmart stores in April 2023.

“Our partnership with Microban to offer this co-branded line of products represents an innovation that truly delivers what consumers are looking for in today’s climate, with cleanliness and bacteria being top of everyone’s mind,” said Laura Klarich, Marketing Manager at Berry Global. “Color Scents products now feature seamlessly incorporated Microban antimicrobial technology, providing a solution that keeps trash storage deodorized and fragrant, and homes feeling clean and fresh.”

The new additions to the Color Scents family of products are available in three different sizes – catering to all household waste needs – and combine a choice of four subtle scents with Microban® antimicrobial technology to protect against the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

How does Microban technology work in Color Scents trash bags?

Microban protection helps fight the growth of microorganisms that cause stains, odors and product degradation. When microbes come in contact with the treated product surface, Microban protection penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts cell functions making the microorganism unable to function, grow and reproduce.

What are the benefits of built-in Microban antimicrobial technology?

  • Provides continuous product protection against odor-causing bacterial growth
  • Remains active for the lifetime of the product.
  • Do not wash off or wear away, EVER!

I can't see it, so how do I know it's working?

Microban antimicrobial technology offers “invisible cleanliness” and works to inhibit the growth of bacteria on a surface, but does not necessarily produce a visual effect that can be seen by the naked eye.

On an unprotected surface, stain and odor-causing bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes. Microban antimicrobial product protection works continuously to keep Color Scents trash bags cleaner in between changes.
