BRING YOUR OWN BAG DAY!
For more information:
At Bring Your Own Bag™, we pride ourselves on offering our customers reusable products that help make our planet a cleaner place to live. That’s why Earth Day is one of our favourite days of the year, and we want help make Earth Day in 2021 a great day for you as well.
Since 2005, BYOB™ has helped eliminate the use of over 44.6 billion plastic bags around the world, and we’ve worked with retailers to save approximately $20 million by reducing their plastic bag use. Why is this so important to us?
- It is estimated that 4 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide annually, and that only 1% of them are returned for recycling by consumers.
- The average family only recycles 15 plastic bags per year, with the rest ending up in landfills or as litter.
- Studies estimate there are now 15–51 trillion pieces of plastic in the world's, and that not one square mile of the ocean’s surface anywhere on earth is free of plastic pollution.
The average reusable bag has a lifespan equal to that of more than 700 disposable plastic bags, and just one person using reusable bags over their lifetime could potentially eliminate more than 22,000 plastic bags from the environment.
The Bring Your Own Bag™ program helps eliminate plastic bags by offering quality reusable products that your customers will be proud to carry and use again and again.
Bring Your Own Bag™ this Earth Day, for a better planet.
