When we chose our Top 10 Picks for Earth Day we were focused on replacing the most commonly used disposables - paper towels, single-use plastic bags, bottled water, paper lunch bags, etc.

We're happy to see Care2 agreed with the picks we made and endorsed them this week on their site.

To Ban or Not to Ban - the Chicago Area Debates the Issue
By RUI
4/8/2013 9:26:00 AM  

Last week we brought you the story of a proposed bag ban in Evanston, IL - a town not too far away from our Chicago headquarters. As Chicagoans consider the impact of the ban, and the possibility that our city could adopt its own ban we debate the pros and cons of bans vs taxes. In this morning's issue of the RedEye reporter Georgia Garvey sounds off on the subject, along with our company founder Vincent Cobb.

Learn more about our stance on the debate.

reuseit.com talks cheap reusables, fair manufacturing practices with Plastics To
By RUI
4/8/2013 9:20:00 AM  

As a respected leader in the reusables movement, we feel that it's important to encourage an open dialogue about the over-consumption and misuse of single-use plastics, and the implementation of effective solutions to reduce their long-term negative impact. To that end, we recently had the opportunity to discuss the growing popularity of plastic bag bans with an influential publication in the plastics industry, Plastics Today. reuseit.com has long been a proponent of bag fees, rather than bans, as a proven, market-based solution. When properly implemented, fee-based programs have been shown to reduce consumption by 80-90%. In the article published last week, our VP of Operations touches on the hazards of cheap reusable bags and dispels the myth that a "Made in China" label automatically means poor quality and unfair labor practices.

Of course, amongst all possible remedies to the problem of over-consumption, we are steadfast in our belief that high-quality reusables are the best solution!

Want to know more? Read on about the problems associated with cheap reusable bags and learn why recycling can't fix the issue. And check out our post about safe, responsible overseas manufacturing.

EarthTimes 11.20.07

Chicago-based reuseit.com (formerly ReusableBags.com) is the People's Choice for Green Business of the Year from Co-op America.  The Award was announced this month at the San Francisco Green Festival.  ReusableBags.com estimates that it has helped 70,000 customers to reduce their consumption of use-and-toss items (such as petroleum-based plastic shopping bags) by 190 million units.

ReusableBags.com Founder Vincent Cobb said:  "Our ongoing mission since day one has been to change the status quo of society's use-and-toss mentality by providing sound, practical ideas and products.   We were honored to be nominated the past two years for this Award.  And it is a thrill to be the winner of this attention in 2007."
