Bag Monster - 1 year, 1 shopper, 500 bags

WHO IS THE BAG MONSTER®?


Single-use bags are easy to spoof since they're such a bad idea, so ChicoBag company invented Bag Monsters®. ChicoBag inventor, Andy Keller, had been using a huge ball of 500 plastic bags to show people at farmer's market how many plastic bags an average American uses yearly - and one day he decided to wear it. Thus was the spawning of the first Bag Monster® (costume that is).

The Bag Monster® is a costume worn by your volunteer to visually show the impact single-use plastic bags have on our environment.  These flighty bags end up in trees, along roadsides and washed up on sea shores.  Each costume is decked out with 500 plastic bags, the average amount an American uses in one year.

The Bag Monster® Blog will keep you up to date on the reusable bag movement and related environmental news while providing comical updates on Bag Monster® whereabouts.
