Single-use plastic bags contribute to global pollution problems and are often not disposed of correctly.
Beebagz are washable, reuseable bags that contain no plastic whilst also having most of the benefits of plastic bags.
Other replacement solutions for plastic bags do not replicate their utility in the same way as Beebagz do.
Not clear how large-scale of an innovation this is; is it purely for personal use or can it scale to commercial level?
Single-use plastics are one of the largest contributors to global pollution, in particular pollution of oceans. Despite this, replacement products which replicate their benefits have not achieved a wide market share. Beebagz are a fully plastic-free alternative to plastic storage bags, which are washable, reuseable and have most of the same benefits (ex. waterproof, zip-sealed).
