Several years ago, ECO-BAGGEEZ were conceptualized by Beth Race, 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 2018 U.S. Census and reported by Statista.
Plastic Sandwich bags take an average of 50 years to biodegrade. When they do biodegrade, they put harmful chemicals back into the earth.
Because traditional sandwich bags take so long to biodegrade, the problem is compounded every year. The result? Approximately 9 billion pounds of plastic in landfills, 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 or resealable closure, 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 hears; Then along came ECO-BAGGEEZ...
