02.01.2010 – reuseit.com® (previously Reusablebags.com®) is not your typical small business. A catalyst for change, the company has been instrumental in spawning the reusables movement.
Reusablebags.com® was launched in 2003 to call attention to the absurdity of society’s overconsumption of plastic bags and became a highly-influential site for information on the hazards of use-and-toss items as well as a comprehensive online store for reusable products.
On February 1, the company will launch its search for online activists and communicators who are savvy in new media and eager to actively promote the wisdom of the reusables movement as part of the reuseit.com® Ambassadors Program.
Applicants should be great communicators, eager to follow the company’s lead and believe in its overall vision and ‘no b.s.’ philosophy. “We want people as passionate about the movement as we are to help us guide consumers and society down a sensible path,” said the company’s founder Vincent Cobb. “Our legacy is built on offering sound solutions and products, leading on the issues, and drawing attention to key trends such as the explosion of cheap reusables.”
Part store and part information hub, reuseit.com® has cultivated a uniquely passionate customer base of over 210,000. Based on its running “use and toss ticker,” it has empowered its customers to save over 800 million use-and-toss items. Every tweet, blog and video the ambassadors provide will help influence the habits of countless more people, creating an enormous collective impact.
The quick and easy application process is open to anyone and requires a 300-word description of why you should be an ambassador. Video submissions are also accepted – just upload a video to any video sharing site and submit the link. Once selected, the team of ambassadors will provide faces behind the “reusables” lifestyle that people across the nation can identify with - savvy, conscious consumers who recognize that society’s addiction to use-and-toss items doesn’t make sense.
