    Why is now the time to go plastic free?

    Is now the time to go plastic-free? Wondering if you should take your zero-waste goals to the next level? Our answer is a resounding YES! 

    Here are some of our favourite reasons to give up the plastic habit once and for all!

    You can be part of something bigger! Plastic Free July – a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – is just around the corner. Their website is packed with tips and inspiration to make your transition away from plastic simpler. As we say at BeeBAGZ™, every drop counts! Read more about Plastic-Free July on their websitesign the petitiontake the quiz, and follow the movement on Instagram and Facebook

    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!

    It can save you money. Going plastic free and zero waste can help save the planet and your pennies! You’ll quickly make back the money you invest in products like good quality reusable water bottles, stainless steel straws, and BeeBAGZ™. Their plasticcounterparts are cheaper as one-offs, but cost a lot more over time. Moreover, BeeBAGZ™ will keep your produce fresher longer, so you’ll save money by reducing food waste!

    How to Get the Full Benefits of Using Reusable Produce Bags

    We know plastics hurt the planet. 18 billion pounds of it fills the oceans every year. But if you’re reading this post, chances are you’re part of the green community that, bit by bit, is saving the planet. You’ve switched to natural cleaners, apply organic sunscreen, shop at local farmers’ markets (or grow your own veggies!), drive cars less dependent on fossil fuels, and swap single-use plastic wrap and Ziplocs for eco-friendly reusable alternatives. 

    You know these little things help turn the earth green again. But what you might not know is that some of the green things you do aren’t as green as you might think they are. And there are also things you can do to double-up your “greenness”—like using reusable produce bags in multiple ways. How can you get the most out of your planet-saving efforts?
