Stop Single-Use Bag Waste with CHICOBAG

  • The average American uses between 300 and 700 plastic bags per year.
  • If everyone in the United States tied their annual consumption of plastic bags together in a giant chain, the chain would reach around the Earth not once, but 760 times!
  • According to the American Forest and Paper Association, in 1999 the U.S. alone used 10 billion paper grocery bags, requiring 14 million trees to be cut down.
  • Plastic bags don’t biodegrade, they photo-degrade—breaking down into small toxic bits contaminating soil and waterways and entering the food-chain when mistaken for zooplankton or jellyfish.

Market with Video

Chico Bag represents a new phenomenon in marketing. Dramatized advertising and promotion appeals to everyone -- especially the young adult market. YouTube, Revver and a variety of online video hosting services make this kind of drama appealing.

The ChicoBag has garnered over 2,000 views in the two months it has been on YouTube.

And it got my attention...so now you're seeing. it. See how easy it is for video to become viral?

Need help putting together video for your green product or service? Call Carolyn -- I've produced a video and would love to work with LA area companies who want to explore this marketing avenue. We'll work something out!
