City Think of the Bag Ladies!

These folks are.
We in the plastic bag industry are determined to improve the lives of the homeless, and cheap disposable bags are key to our approach. Before cheap disposable plastic bags derived from petroleum-based compounds were widely introduced in the 1970s, there was no weather-proof way for people of the street to carry their belongings—you try putting your stuff in a canvas tote through a rainy Seattle winter and see how that works out! By providing cheap disposable bags by the millions and millions and millions and millions every year, we make sure there’s an ample free supply of gently used & slightly-dirtied bags available for the less fortunate. It’s just something we do.
