  • 100% Natural
  • 100% Recycle
  • 100% ECO Friendly

Stasher bags are considered sustainable for several reasons:

  1. Reusable: Stasher bags are designed to be reused over and over again, unlike single-use plastic bags. This reduces the amount of waste generated from disposable plastic bags.

  2. Durable: Stasher bags are made from durable silicone material, which can withstand high temperatures and is less prone to tearing or breaking compared to plastic bags. This durability extends the lifespan of the bags, further reducing the need for disposal.

  3. Non-toxic: Stasher bags are made from food-grade silicone, which is free from harmful chemicals like BPA, PVC, and latex. This makes them safe for storing food and reduces the risk of chemical leaching into food or the environment.

  4. Versatile: Stasher bags can be used for a wide range of purposes, including storing food, cooking, freezing, and even sous vide cooking. Their versatility encourages consumers to use them in various ways, reducing the need for single-use plastic alternatives.

  5. Recyclable: Although Stasher bags are not biodegradable, they are recyclable. Silicone can be recycled through specialized recycling programs, although these programs may not be widely available everywhere yet. However, the recyclability of Stasher bags provides a potential end-of-life solution that reduces their environmental impact compared to traditional plastic bags.

Overall, Stasher bags offer a more sustainable alternative to traditional plastic bags by promoting reuse, durability, non-toxicity, versatility, and recyclability.

ASSESSMENT AS OF: JANUARY 2024

HOW TO GET STARTED

The average household goes through 500 plastic storage bags a year. Most of these bags are used for a few days at most. The average silicone bag will last 3-5 years and handle over 3,000 uses. Making the switch is a no-brainer. Plastic bags degrade into harmful microplastics and they do this through a process that lasts 400 years.

EMBRACE

  1. Silicone storage bag alternatives last for 3-5 years or over 3,000 uses
  2. Silicone bags don't generate microplastics
  3. Silicone bags can create more durable air-tight seals

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. The average American household goes through 500 plastic storage bags each year. These cannot be recycled and end up in landfills.
  2. Each plastic bag takes roughly 400 years to break down...and break down to microplastics.
  3. Many of these bags clog recycling machinery and cause problems in recycling centers.

Overall Sustainability Score - 74 / 100

Score Breakdown

Manufacturing (Score - 5/10) - Made in China. Not close to the final market.

Distribution (Score - 5/10) -Made in China. Not close to the final market.

Cost (Score - 5/10) - Cost is notably higher than disposable bags.

Packaging (Score - 9/10) -  Packaging is largely paperboard.

Effectiveness (Score - 10/10) - As effective as disposable plastic bag alternatives.

Lifespan (Score - 10/10) - Can last multiple years and potentially a lifetime.

Fun (Score - 10/10) - Very easy to use and feels more substantial than a plastic bag alternative.

Relevance (Score - 10/10) -  Ideal for intended use. Can create a near-air-tight seal.

Disposal (Score - 5/10) -  Made of inert silicone. Not as bad as plastic, but has an environmentally damaging production process.

Recycling (Score - 5/10) - Silicone cannot be infinitely recycled. It can be downcycled into industrial lubricants. However, many municipal recycling centers don't recycle silicone.
