New BagSavr+ Has Redirected 160,000 Plastic Grocery Bags And Counting

January 9th, 2015 by Gabriel

West Michigan manufacturer and a new startup company, Products That Work LLC,  has already made a sizable impact in the re-use of plastic bags.

Since the initial launch of it’s new BagSavr+ container in the summer of 2013, already over 160,000 plastic grocery bags have been saved and reused. See the patented design and get yours HERE.  Also on Amazon PRIME HERE.

Products That Work LLC and Camcar Plastics Inc,  have been making steady progress marketing their new BagSavr+ patented container for reusing plastic grocery bags with sales online, in grocery, college, hardware and RV markets.

“We are really just getting started and ramping up distribution into retail outlets, but even with the small exposure already achieved, our customers have already reused 160,000 bags, and saved approximately $20,000 with the reduced need for garbage bags!” Says Courtney Gust, partner in Products That Work, LLC. “While these numbers are still small compared to the quantity of bags being produced and used each month in the USA, It is still makes a significant impact and it shows the potential that widespread distribution will make.   Most people are working to develop habits of saving and reusing already and stats show that 90% of people already reuse these bags whenever possible. We’re just giving them a product that makes it easy.” The company’s manufacturing capacity will allow for millions of bags to be saved and reused across the USA and around the world as distribution builds and people become aware of this new design.

BagSavr+ is made in West Michigan at family-owned Camcar Plastics, Inc.

The company’s estimates of approximately 6,000 bags being saved each week (totaling 160,000* and counting) are conservative. Those estimates are based on an average of only 2 bags per week being used, per BagSavr.  Some studies have found that most households use an average 2 to 3 kitchen trash bags each week so it’s likely that plastic grocery bags would be reused even more because they are a smaller size. Those re-use numbers continue to rise as more and more people purchase BagSavr’s and begin using them.

BagSavr+ patented design is made specifically for reusing plastic grocery bags and locks them into place so they won’t fall down in. The solid base contains spills while the Hanger Bracket Kit and handle make it easy to attach, remove and clean.

The company focuses a lot on the green aspects of bag reuse, but at the same time wants to recognize the cost savings customers enjoy.  By reusing the grocery bags people already have in their homes and not buying kitchen trash bags,  people are saving $50 per year** or more.  It’s not a life-changing amount but pretty still great that a  simple USA-made product that sells for $14.99 can help everyday people save $50 each year while also reducing waste.

New BagSavr+ Eliminates ‘Single Use’ From Plastic Grocery Bag description

April 14th, 2014 by Gabriel

Have you ever asked, “What can I do with all those plastic grocery bags?”

We all want to save, reuse and repurpose whenever we can.

 If so, you are not alone because most people do. In fact, if you are like most of people, you already have a collection of plastic grocery bags stuffed in a kitchen drawer already.

You already use them for packing lunches, carrying dirty laundry, bathroom trash cans and cleaning out the litter box. Your grandma might even loop them over her cabinet handles for her kitchen waste. With 90% of people who bring home plastic grocery bags already reusing them on a regular basis, the need for an easy and versatile bag re-use trash bin seems clear.

With these bags, people have a resource that is already made, shipped and given to us for free. They are just waiting right in our kitchen closet for us to reuse them. With all the uses and benefits of money savings and reduced waste, Products That Work hopes people everywhere will join their ‘Re-Use Revolution’ and help eliminate ‘single use’ as a descriptor of plastic grocery bags.

BagSavr+ designer Gabriel Beversluis has teamed up with Products That Work, LLC, of Muskegon, Michigan, to create a new trash can/recycle bin with several patent-pending features making it user-friendly and versatile.

With BagSavr+ Products That Work hopes to drastically reduce plastic bag littering: “Not only is reusing and repurposing a no-brainer, but If everyone had BagSavr+ at home, littering of plastic bags would be reduced, helping to keep those bags out of waterways. It provides a great incentive for everyone to reduce waste and littering with bag reuse.  What we are doing is simply providing the tool needed to unlock the true value of these bags for people everywhere. Once people understand the benefits of saving them, they will stick them in their pockets instead of tossing them as litter.”

Perfectly Sized to Fit Kitchen Cabinets and Plastic Grocery Bags

 Perfectly sized to fit plastic grocery bags and the inside of a kitchen cabinet door, BagSavr+ also works as a freestanding garbage can in any room and includes several features that set it apart from all competitors.

The simple to use, attachable design along with the convenient size have made it a perfect fit for people looking for a smaller garbage can.

“It’s hard to find anyone who does not understand and agree with the importance of using resources responsibly”, according to Beversluis.  “With BagSavr+ we hope to provide millions of people the opportunity to reuse and repurpose all of their bags. Doing so will help to keep the environment clean while they save money: all while making their household trash and recycling easy to manage.  We worked very hard to make BagSavr+ affordable and easy for everyone to use in any location.”
