OnTray vs. The Plastic Baggie

I was wondering today, "How many plastic bags do Americans waste in a year?". So, I Googled it. the answer blew me away. According to WikiAnswers.com, Americans throw away 38 billion plastic bags a year! Is that astounding or what? When I created OnTray, I was on a mission to solve my problem. Throughout the process, however, I've learned that OnTray doesn't just solve one problem; it solves quite a few. OnTray is 100% recyclable, contributing to less waste when you decide you're through using it. OnTray is dishwasher safe and BPA free, therefor, you can continue to use it unlike a plastic bag. It also cuts back on how many bags are thrown away. Okay, so maybe OnTray won't solve the issue of American landfills filling up with plastic baggies, but I'd like to think maybe it makes a small dent!

Me, OnTray and Capital Style magazine

Not my favorite picture of myself, but yes...I really was juggling those three OnTrays! My thanks go to the editor, Kristy Eckert, for a fun interview.
