The 1 Bag at a Time Story

Our story begins with my belief that small actions add up to big impacts in the world. When I founded 1 Bag at a Time® in 2005, I wanted to make a positive impact. That meant a company that combines the best of environmental, social, and economic responsibility. I remain committed to those same beliefs today.

I used to be a high school English teacher, but when I discovered reusable grocery bags on a trip to Australia, it changed my life. As a passionate environmentalist and life-long learner, I was shocked to learn about the damage caused by disposable shopping bags.

It didn’t take me long to see how easy reusable bags were as a solution. It was a positive transformation that I wanted to share with others. So I set out to bring attractive and affordable reusable bags to America, and share information about the how bags impact our planet. That’s exactly what I’ve done.

Since then, my company has become a leading supplier of reusable bags in America. The more than 20 million bags I have sold will replace billions of plastic bags, saving our environment and our cities untold damage and waste.

As a bag specialist, I serve a range of customers from small organizations and businesses, to large corporations. They know they can count on my company to deliver a consistently high quality product, excellent customer service, and corporate responsibility policies that accord with their own beliefs about respect for people and the planet.

For me, reusable bags are emblematic of a cleaner, better world. I hope you’ll join my mission to save the world—1 Bag at a Time®!
