  • Brookline Bans Disposable Plastic Bags and Styrofoam Food Containers

    Beginning in December 2013 plastic shopping bags will no longer be allowed in Brookline, Massachusetts, a Boston suburb of just over 57,000 people. About 73% of the town meeting members voted in favor of the ban that would prevent supermarkets, some pharmacies, and other larger retail stores from handing out disposable polyethylene bags. Plastic bags that are compostable and marine-degradable will still be allowed since they do not pose a risk to the environment and animals that call the area home. Paper bags are not impacted by the ban. In addition to the plastic bag ban, the town also approved a ban on Styrofoam food containers that is set to take effect at the same time as the bag ban.

  • Custom Cooler Bags Are a Great Way to Increase Your Brand Recognition

    Cooler bags are so much more versatile than many people may realize. Insulated bags are great for taking on trips and keeping drinks chilled at a party, but you can also leave an insulated custom cooler bag in the car to keep frozen items cold on the drive home from the store or use an insulated bag to keep take-out warm until you get it on the table. A reusable cooler bag is also great for bringing a hot or cold dish to a party or to a potluck. Our reusable cooler bags are soft sided so after cleanup they take up minimal space and easily stow under a seat in your car or in a closet or pantry when not in use.

  • Latest Chapter in Ongoing Plastic Bag Saga Finds Toronto Bag Ban Overturned….For Now

    When Toronto’s mayor, Rob Ford, attempted to do away with a 5-cent fee that was levied on plastic bags handed out at stores within the city that set off a surprising turn of events. Ford wanted to do away with the fee because he felt it was not necessary – he felt shoppers should be able to use plastic bags if they want to and it was silly to charge a fee to dissuade them. The council immediately voted to pass the mayor’s proposal to end the fee and just as quickly proposed and passed an outright ban on plastic bags. The ban was scheduled to begin on January 1, 2013, but once again the plan has changed.
