That’s how long it can take for one plastic bag to decompose.

That’s how many bags are used in the US in just one year.
And in landfills, studies show paper bags aren’t much better. They produce twice as much atmospheric waste as plastic. But don’t despair. There are good numbers too. Using a reusable bag for most of your life can stop 22,000 plastic ones entering the ocean or the ground. That’s where we come in.
700 Plastic bags can be saved over the lifetime of one Junes bag.
We’re on a mission to create versatile, durable alternatives to plastic bags—to do our part to slow down climate change. And the good news? If you carry just one Junes bag, you’re on the path to doing your part too.
