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.


Ergonomic design perfectly fits and stores plastic grocery 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.

Retailers interested in BagSavr+ may contact Products That Work HERE for information on wholesale pricing, store displays and more.

June 2014, BagSavr+ for Grocery Bags awarded patent by USPTO

July 3rd, 2014 by Gabriel

BagSavr+  Granted it’s First Patent on June 3, 2014

Patent # D.706,511 is titled “Combined Bag Recycler And Holder” and covers the design aspects of Products That Work llc’s new re-use system for plastic grocery bags .


“We worked very hard to think of everything while designing the BagSavr+.” Says Gabriel Beversluis of Products That Work, LLC., “We looked at every product on the market for storing and reusing plastic grocery bags and came up with ways to make them work better, look better and be more versatile. We were not just making a trash can, we designed a system that people can use in every room of the house, in their cars, dorm rooms, RV’s and even retirement homes.”

“My motivation was to find a way to use these bags and get the big ugly trash can out of my kitchen.” Says Beverlsuis,  “As I looked at my own collection of used grocery bags and wanted to find a better way to make good use of these bags in order to save money and help reduce waste through re-use.

“I searched in vain to find an existing product that would work the way I wanted. Since I could not find a good solution I decided to make my own. Initially I made 2 prototypes by forming sheets of plastic into a container that could be mounted on my cabinet doors. It worked so well that about a month later we got rid of our regular garbage can and I realized that I had stumbled upon a design that really needed to be shared with the world. I joined with Products That Work and together we developed the BagSavr+ which is now being sold nationwide.”
