On average, one reusable snack/sandwich bag diverts up to 300 single-use plastic sandwich baggies from landfills, storm drains and oceans. Since landfills are typically between 15 to 30 miles away from your home, this means each person is throwing away approximately 300 plastic sandwich baggies per year into a landfill near their home or workplace. Plastic is made from polyethylene and does not decompose. This plastic waste remains in our landfills for 500+ years, degrading into smaller particles, which can leak into our soil and water. Plastic bags are often washed away into storm drains and end up in our oceans causing toxicity and death to sea life. By simply using one reusable snack/sandwich bag, you can divert 300 traditional polyethylene based plastic baggies from our landfills and waterways, help improve drinking water quality and the ocean health we rely on for food and recreation.
