Understanding the Plastic Problem

Every year, roughly 102.1 billion plastic bags are used by Americans.

Reusable plastic bags

are not the answer

They are creating an even bigger problem despite our best intentions.

Very few plastic or reusable bags actually get recycled because current facilities can’t manage mixed plastics. Let’s fool-proof the system and utilize a bag that nature can process and doesn’t rely on systems that aren’t economically or energetically viable. Compostable is a solution that bypasses that problem and doesn’t put additional stress on the system.
