Supporting America’s Teachers and Families!


Lake Forest, Illinois, June 9, 2014 –
Reynolds Consumer Products is pleased to announce that Hefty® Slider Bags is now a sponsor of TeacherLists.com, home of the National School Supply Lists Directory, the largest and fastest-growing web service for school supply lists that makes back-to-school planning easier for parents and families.  Hefty® Slider Bags are the exclusive food and storage bag sponsor of TeacherLists.com and the Hefty® brand will work to make this exciting service accessible to even more teachers and families in 2014 and beyond.


School supply lists have been a staple of the back-to-school experience for millions of families for decades. Now, those lists are easier for teachers to share and for parents to use.  The TeacherLists.com concept is simple: teachers can easily post their school supply lists and wish lists online.  Parents can easily find the lists they need from any computer, tablet or smartphone.  The lists can be printed or viewed easily on a mobile device right in the store. 


Teachers can request specific products tailored to their classroom needs, including items like Hefty® Slider Bags, which are great for organizing crayons, markers, art supplies and other small objects. Our long standing heritage of strength, durability and quality means that our slider bags will stand up to the many ways they will be used in a classroom.


“Hefty® Slider Bags are an exciting addition to the quality brands in our TeacherLists.com family,” said TeacherLists.com Founder Tim Sullivan.  “The Hefty® brand fits perfectly with our goal of making back-to-school simpler for everyone.  Hefty® is known for products that ‘prevent the mess’ and help make clean-up and organization easy for busy families… and classrooms.”


“We are pleased to be working with TeacherLists.com to help make the school supply experience better for teachers and families,” said Lisa Smith, Director of Marketing for Hefty® Slider Bags.  “Teachers are always looking for ways to stay organized in the classroom… Even kindergarteners can easily use Hefty® Slider Bags and be sure the bags are closed.”


Launched in 2012, TeacherLists.com already boasts the largest database available of current school supply and teacher wish lists, with lists from more than 350,000 classrooms and more than 20,000 schools across all 50 states.  The site is taking an annual chore for every parent – finding those lists and getting the exact supplies their children need – and making it easier for all.  For a complete look at TeacherLists.com or to easily post or find lists, visit www.TeacherLists.com
