What is the Plastic Pledge?
Pledgers can buy one or more smart swap alternatives to plastic products from our online SwapSHOP and 10% of sales is donated to The Ocean Cleanup. Another portion of proceeds will be reinvested into marketing Take The Plastic Pledge so we can reach our goal of 1 MILLION pledgers.
ZizzyBee Bags is the owner of Take The Plastic Pledge and partners with unique brands that have quality products to replace plastic products as well as brand who have eco-friendly products in general. We also partner with Ambassadors that want to help us win the war on plastic which together we can!

Be the #1 Call To Action to Win the war on plastic
We applaud the amazing public service announcements and organizations educating people on the very serious plastic problem that will take over our oceans - UNLESS we act. We want the plastic pledge to be THE call to action that everyone uses when talking about this serious issue.
Inspire the World to change via action
Plastic is a major problem and only together we can win this war. Through action we can save our planet.

1.15 to 2.41 million metric tons of plastic are entering the ocean each year and finding its way to one of five floating garbage patches.

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) is the largest of the five located halfway between Hawaii and California. It covers 1.6 million square kilometers (twice the size of Texas).

Chemicals in plastics will enter the body of the animal feeding on the plastic which means they reach humans. Also, $13 BILLION is spent a year cleaning up plastic.

recycled plastic, and other awesome eco gifts.
"I used to buy plastic water bottles and after taking the Plastic Pledge I switched to a reusable eco bottle - I love it! The SwapSHOP has such cool gifts."
"I LOVE Zizzybee Bags! They are so much better than a plastic zip-bag. I use for my son's toys, for traveling, to organize clutter in my purse, and SO MUCH MORE. I love that I'm saving 1000 plastic bags a year!"
