Make an Impact with Fill it Forward

by | May 5, 2021 | Community

Made from 20 recycled plastic bottles, the Everyday Tote Bag was designed by Fill it Forward to help eliminate our dependency on single-use plastic bags. The bucket-style opening, versatile design and rugged durability (it can hold up to 50 pounds) have you covered for a wide range of uses – and reuses – throughout the day. Sounds like a great idea, right?

Here’s the even niftier tech twist: the Everyday Tote Bag comes with a Bag Tag that connects to the Fill it Forward app to track your community’s collective impact. Simply wrap the tag on the handle of your tote bag; download the free Fill it Forward app and scan the tag every time you reuse the bag. Both the Everyday Tote Bag and Bag Tags are machine washable, and with each scan, Fill it Forward will donate to charitable projects like Second Harvest while also tracking your environmental impact.

Beyond the Bag Challenge

Fill it Forward was recently named one of nine winners out of over 450 international entries in the Beyond the Bag Challenge from Closed Loop Partners, a New York-based investment firm focused on building the circular economy. They’ll share in $1 million in prize money and will be eligible for additional financial support to test, pilot and scale efforts.

Fill it Forward app users help fund giving projects that provide access to nutritious food, clean water, hygiene, sanitation and education. You can learn more about how Fill it Forward products support these initiatives by clicking here and you can order a Bag Tag of your own here.
