ReUsies are a reusable bag that is great for a sandwich bag, snack bag and even to wrap a holiday gift in. Use it to wrap your secret Santa, teacher or coworker gifts and they have a reusable bag instead of wasted wrapping paper. Use code HOLIDAY to get 20% off through 12/31/13.
Using reusable bags instead of plastic has a huge impact:
- Plastic bags make up over 10% of debris found on US Coastlines.
- Every plastic bag we use will be around for centuries, long after our children outgrow their lunchboxes.
- Each plastic bag takes over 1,000 years to break down. Plastic bags do not biodegrade, they photodegrade whereby over time they breakdown into smaller, more toxic petropolymers.
- Less than 1% of plastic bags are recycled. It costs more to recycle a plastic bag than to produce a new one.
