Several years ago, ECO-BAGGEEZ were conceptualized by Beth Race, a busy mom, while she was having lunch at work. She realized she was using 3-4 plastic sandwich bags in her lunch every day. When she multiplied that by the lunches her children took to school, the big picture began to unfold...
PLASTIC SANDWICH BAGS ARE A BIG PROBLEM
Each year, approximately 97 BILLION plastic sandwich bags are thrown into landfills in the United States alone. That figure is based on the 2020 U.S. Census and reported by Statista.
Plastic Sandwich bags take an average of 50 years to break down. When they do breakdown, they put harmful chemicals back into the earth.
Laid end-to-end, those bags would circle our planet
430 times... and the problem is compounded every year. The result? Approximately 9 billion pounds of plastic in landfills, waterways, and oceans, at any given time, are plastic sandwich bags.
Currently, the alternatives are: wax paper sandwich bags coated with petroleum-based wax; imported, paper sandwich bags that have no secure edge-to-edge resealable flap, cloth-based sandwich wraps that need to be washed using chemicals and energy to be reused; material wraps that are made of plastic so resilient it will not biodegrade for hundreds of years; Then along came
ECO-BAGGEEZ Sandwich/Snack Bags fit today's healthier lifestyle and a new generation of sustainable products.
