It’s healthier for you. We’re all rightfully concerned about protecting our health at this time. However, health experts are pushing back against plastic industry and just recently declared the safety of reusables during COVID-19. Nearly 130 scientists, academics, and doctors from 19 countries signed onto a statement June 22, reassuring retailers and consumers that reusable systems can be utilized safely during the pandemic by employing basic hygiene. Read the details here.

It’s in line with your values. According to a recent Ipsos poll, "even in the midst of safety concerns fuelled by the pandemic, Canadians have not forgotten about environmental sustainability when it comes to the produce they buy. More than two in three (68%) say that eliminating plastic from their food packaging is important (36% very/32% moderately). Fully half (51%) say they would prefer that their leafy greens and herb packages be made of a non-plastic, compostable, plant-based material. By contrast, just 21% would prefer produce to come packaged in recycled plastic, sometimes referred to as rPET.” Using plastic-free, reusable, antimicrobial BeeBAGZ™ can help you feel good about how you’re storing your food!
