Today is Earth Day, and at BYOB™ and the InStore Group of Companies, it’s always an exciting time of year.

At Bring Your Own Bag™, we make massive efforts year round to develop new and improved reusable products that our customers can lean on to help make our planet a cleaner place to live. That’s why Earth Day is one of our favourite days of the year, and it’s why we’re excited for what’s to come!

We have a lot of new offerings that we’re excited to reveal over the course of 2022. We kicked things off with a bang when this February when we introduced our latest eco-friendly innovation, the OceanTote, a fully customizable reusable bag that’s made of recycled ocean-bound plastic. RPET pellets are made from recovered ocean-bound plastic waste and used to create durable fibers, ready to be sewn into usable items like our OceanTote!

Happy Earth Day from Your Friends at BYOB!

There’s a lot more in our hopper though. We know as much as you do that incorporating sustainable practices into our lives helps make a difference when it comes to limiting the amount of plastic we use. That’s why we continue to make strides in creating products and programs that will help to close the loop, utilize new technology, and most importantly, embrace green practices year round.

Showing all of this through the work we do is our passion, from the initiatives we support to the programs we build. As a whole, the Bring Your Own Bag™ program helps eliminate single-use plastic bags by offering quality reusable products that your customers will be proud to use again and again. We have a wide range of bags that are made with various levels of post-industrial materials that are both durable and versatile. For instance, our RPET Bags are made with recycled pop bottles and recycled cotton, a green alternative to the standard virgin plastic bags you can find elsewhere. As well, through our partnership with 1% For The Planet, BYOB will donate 1% of qualifying program sales to non-profit organizations working to preserve the planet we call home.

Needless to say, Earth Day is special to us, and we want it to be special for you too. Over one billion people in nearly 200 countries worldwide participate in Earth Day activities every year. It’s one of the world’s largest environmental movements, and it’s a movement that we’re proud to be a part of. Not to mention, since 2005, BYOB™ has worked with retailers to save approximately $20 million by reducing their overall plastic bag usage. So why not join in on saving the planet and your bottom line?
