I AM a Plastic Bag AND I’m 100% RecyclableMove over “I’m Not a Smug Twat” bag. Another Anya Hindmarch knock-off has come to town – it’s the “I AM a Plastic Bag AND I’m 100% Recyclable” bag.

It was created by the Progressive Bag Alliance, an organization dedicated to ensuring that plastic bags are recycled, reused, and disposed of properly. Oh, and it’s founded by all of the big plastic bag manufacturers. I’d add another line to their mission – to promote the use of plastic bags.

They are here to remind us that plastic bags can be reused and recycled – and that they are better than paper bags. In fact, they are serious about this bag – it’s for sale on eBay, complete with some myths & facts that the Alliance wants you to know.

I AM a Plastic Bag AND I’m 100% RecyclableWhat they don’t discuss is that reusable bags are WAY BETTER than any plastic bag. In the US alone, we go through 100 BILLION plastic bags a year. Let me say that again: 100,000,000,000 bags in just one year. They require petroleum, toxic chemicals, and tons of energy to make. Read more facts & why recycling is good – but not the best solution.

Great marketing campaign, PBA, but we’ll stick with our reusable bags. Congrats Anya, you’re makin’ em sweat.
