BaggerMaid bags are built for industry. They were originally designed and developed or the stringent needs of the healthcare industry. As BaggerMaid products become more popular, and people in other industries recognized the qualities that made our products good for the healthcare industry, they bought our products and discovered how well we fit their industry. 


BaggerMaid makes for a healthier, safer, and greener work space.

First our system reduces injuries related to garbage collection in the office. We also improve the sanitary disposition of an office by promoting single bags in a wastebasket—helping avoid contamination of other bags through punctures or cuts.

The New York Times reports that 81 percent of global CEOs are integrating sustainability into their businesses. One way business is going green is by transitioning into paperless workplaces. Businesses that “go green” have made a commitment to taking an active part in the stewardship of the environment, and making the effort to incorporate policies and use products that promote the practice.

BaggerMaid trash bags can be ordered in bulk with our eco-additive1, which allows a programmable and controllable shelf life for the product, with ZERO environmental impact.

We applaud your decision to live and do business in a safer and more eco-conscious way, and we’re glad that you’ve chosen BaggerMaid as a part of that decision. Let’s see if we can help you go further along, with links to public and private resources.

“We’re from the government, and we’re here to help.” 

But seriously…

Good corporate citizenship and sound business practices aren’t mutually exclusive concepts. As a business owner, manager, or stakeholder, it's worth knowing that you can "live green" and get help from the government to do it. Federal, state, and local governments offer tax incentives, credits, and even straight cash payments to individuals and businesses that keep an eye on their carbon footprints.

There is plenty of help available, and it's worth checking with the IRS, and with your state and local governments to learn more about ways you can save.


The U.S. government’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sponsors a large number of industry partnership and product stewardship programs, which are designed to lessen the impact of industrial activities on the environment.

Joining one of these programs helps you connect with others in your industry, grow your brand, and protect the environment and the planet’s natural resources.

Industry & Manufacturing

Nearly every industry is looking for new ways to make better, less expensive, products. By reducing energy consumption and fuel costs, through recycling, and by taking other measures to help the environment one can “go green” with minimal effort.

Of course, there is more that can be done now. including making a commitment to using products that promote sustainability and environmental stewardship.

BaggerMaid trash bags, when custom-ordered with our eco-additive, allow a programmable and controllable shelf life for the product, that makes it biodegrade after exposure to the elements, with ZERO environmental impact.

BaggerMaid—Made for Life (and the Environment).



The shipping industry is one of the more environmentally friendly means of mass-freight transport; the cruise industry is also environmentally-conscious—but as a whole both are still looking for any measure of improvement. They do everything they can to reduce their environmental footprint, through measures like:

  • Heat exchangers to create hot water from the heat of the engines
  • Reduced fuel use with more fuel efficient ships and better streamlining
  • Top-to-bottom, comprehensive, recycling programs, and…
  • Purchasing bio-degradable products—like custom ordered BaggerMaid bags with our eco-additive.

Finding better ways to move cargo and passengers offers the additional benefit of lower long-term costs for operators and their clients.

The maritime industry is considerably more sustainable than alternative methods of freight transport. Container ships emit roughly 40 times less carbon dioxide than large freight aircraft, and three times less than a large truck. Container ships are likewise two-and-a-half times more energy efficient than train transport, and seven times more so than road. Maritime industries are already committed to a greener and safer future, for themselves and the long-term sustainability of the planet.



When people require services from healthcare professionals, they have an expectation that they’ll be seen and treated in a hygienic environment that promotes wellness.

Both health professionals and care recipients might be surprised to find out that many common products used in the health care industry—including cleaners, solvents, medical instruments, and building materials—contain chemicals that pose a hazard to human health and the environment.

(Startlingly, of more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today, only a fraction has been tested for their effects on human health.)

In 2011, five major healthcare purchasing organizations, representing a combined total of $135 billion in medical products purchased each year, endorsed an initiative to lobby manufacturers to produce “greener” medical products.


The BaggerMaid Automatic Trash Containment System meets their standards for Biodegradable Certification1and Food Grade Certification2, which mean we take seriously our commitment to a greener and healthier planet.
