Problem Statement

How might we reduce the use of single use plastic?

Customer / Problem

18 billion pounds of plastic waste flows into our oceans every year from coastal regions. That is equivalent to 5 plastic bags full of trash sitting on every foot of coastline around the world. Every piece of plastic made on earth still exists. The average family uses plastic bags when shopping 1 to 4 times per week. People are aware of the impact plastic bags have but not many people take action. 


Out solution is a social enterprise that makes recyclable, biodegradable shopping bags made from 100% recycled plastic materials. The bags will be available for individual consumers as well as larger corporations. They will be durable and made in a variety of colours and styles.
