Project GreenBag Joins the ‘Reusable Bag Industry Coalition’

Project GreenBag is pleased to announce we have joined 'The Reusable Bag Industry Coalition'. The Reusable Bag Industry Coalition is a group of reusable bag makers from California who's purpose is to create and maintain standards for reusable bags. The coalition is comprised of nine reusable bag makers. Each company adds expertise in various aspects of the industry from fabric, sourcing, importing, environmental leadership and manufacturing.
The coalition was formed in July of 2010 in reaction to the plastic bag industry's misleading tactics designed to stop the California plastic bag ban AB1998. The plastic bag industry launched numerous campaigns claiming many false 'reports'. It was time to counter these claims and set the record straight.
The Reusable Bag Industry Coalition has the support of leading environmental group Heal the Bay. Heal the Bay is also the sponsors of the bill AB1998. Manuel Martinez, founder of Project GreenBags says "This is a huge step in the right direction for California and the environment. Plastic bags have had a huge impact and something needs to be done now to stop it. Together, Heal the Bay and the reusable bag makers are a powerful pair. Connecting a leading environmental group with reusable bag makers is a brilliant combination, one that will expedite the kind of environmental change we need."
