It’s no secret that as a society, our usage of single-use plastics has run rampant to the point where we’re now in the middle of an environmental crisis. The abundance of plastic waste we produce each year is rising, with one of the biggest culprits being single-use plastic bags. These bags can take over 500 years to degrade in a landfill and they release toxic chemicals into our atmosphere as they do. Also, single-use plastic bags don't always full degrade. Instead, they can often turn into micro plastics that further pollute the environment with their toxic output.

Thankfully though, Bring Your Own Bag offers a convenient alternative to the single-use plastic bag that is an affordable, eco-friendly solution. Our Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (RPET) bags are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. As part of the manufacturing process, these bottles get converted into a durable fabric that is then used to create a bag that has become an increasingly popular solution in both the grocery and retail worlds.

What makes these REPT bags so environmentally conscious is that each one reuses materials that are otherwise potentially damaging to the environment. The amount of plastics that are produced to manufacture plastic bottles pills up quickly over time, but the issue is not the use of that plastic. The issue comes from the poor disposal practices of the plastic. These bottles typically end up in oceans or as litter, but when recycled properly, they can be used to in the production of many things including reusable RPET bags. Buying and using REPT bags gives you an opportunity to be apart of this process and this solution, helping for plastic products that have been tossed aside to be reused in a meaningful way.


At BYOB, we take pride in the fact that we are able to include RPET bags as a part of our wide lineup of reusable products. When we use RPET fabrics to create these bags, we do so in the name of reducing plastic waste. It is actions such as these that over time can lead to making a real difference in our world.

Our RPET offering provides you with the chance to insert yourself in the environmental movement and help to make change happen. To learn more about these bags, and any of our other reusable bag and merchandising options available at BYOB, visit our website at BRINGYOUROWNBAG.COM
