Challenge to Consumers: Make the Next Plastic Straw Your Last

CircleTerra helps food service industries by providing sustainable to-go options

CircleTerra, EarthXFilm hope to eliminate one million plastic straws in 6 months

If we can get consumers to start refusing single-use plastic straws, or begin asking for biodegradable paper straws, it won’t take long before businesses take notice.”

— Kelly Freeman, CircleTerra

DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, November 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A North Texas sustainable disposable tableware company is challenging consumers and business owners to reduce single-use plastic straw consumption by one million straws over the next six months.

CircleTerra is partnering with EarthX (the world’s largest Environmental Conference, Expo and Film festival) to promote the EarthxFilm Strike Out Straws pledge. The campaign hopes to put an end to single-use plastic straws by changing behavior at the consumer and business levels.

“Single-use plastic straws take more than 200 years to break down and are becoming more and more detrimental to our oceans and wildlife,” says CircleTerra owner Kelly Freeman. “If we can get consumers to start refusing single-use plastic straws, or begin asking for biodegradable paper straws, it won’t take long before businesses take notice.”

Businesses (and governments) are taking notice. Both Starbucks and Disney Parks have rolled out plans to phase out plastic single-use straws by 2020. Malibu, Miami Beach and Seattle have passed plastic straw bans or restrictions. Freeman says businesses can be on the right side of history by joining the movement now.

“This can be a selling point for businesses that eliminate their plastic straw consumption,” says Freeman. “There are alternatives that can still be used by consumers and discarded, but without the long-term negative consequences to the planet.”

Kelly Freeman is available for interviews, or to help businesses who want to ditch their plastic straw habits. To get in touch with Kelly, email her at kellyfreeman@circleterra.com.

About CircleTerra

New Product Will Improve Waste Diversion, Composting and Recycling Practices

Telescopic Rails and Legs allow unit to accept any size bag in the market

Collecting leaves and branches with the green bag or recyclables with the blue mesh bag

Great for drying your towels or holding your plates and glasses

Use the portable roll up table top and poly cloth bag for filleting your fish

Customize with your favourite Team Logo of Company Name

Excellent for collecting debris and recyclables

World Wide Launch of the Kwik Bagit Eco/System is sure to improve Waste Diversion, Compositing and Recycling Practices with this Patent Pending Portable Device.

“Proper Waste Diversion and Recycling Starts at the SOURCE – IN THE HOME.The Kwik Bagit Eco/System with the reusable poly/ cloth bags will help to save our Environment for a Greener Planet".”

— Harold Sokyrka

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA, November 1, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — President and Inventor Harold Sokyrka (President of Kwik Bagit Products International Inc.) launches the Kwik Bagit Eco/System on popular Crowd Funding Platform www.indiegogo.com/kwikbagit.

After 2 years of R&D, this Patent Pending Utility Device is ready for the worldwide marketplace. The easy to use System encourages the use of machine washable Poly/Cloth Bags to reduce the amount of plastic bags entering municipal landfills and recycling depots. The reusable bags will save consumers from buying plastic bags that take over 100 years to decompose and it will also save the environment by reducing the amount of unnecessary single-use, oil-based plastic bags that are entering our landfills.

The “Kwik-Bag-It-Eco-System” is an Eco-Friendly Portable Utility Device that uses Telescopic Rails and Legs that can be reconfigured to fit any debris collecting bags in the marketplace. Primarily used for the collection of compostable organic waste and debris and for the storage of refundable recyclables.

The System also uses exclusive Retainer Clips that hold the bags to the rails of the unit which makes it so easy to fill and unload the bags. Sokyrka says "You no longer need a third arm or second person to hold the bag open while it is being filled. And once the bag is full – you simply release the clips and the bag falls to the ground and the full bag can then be unloaded into the compost or recycling depot. If it requires a cleaning, a simple spray with water will permit the bag to be used hundreds of times.

Another feature of the Kwik Bagit Eco/System is the portable roll-up tabletop, making it an excellent device to take camping, fishing or to a picnic or the beach where the unit not only collects your debris but it can be used to dry your towels and have a place to set your drinks on as well. This Unit is called the "Outback" and it can easily be strapped to a backpack or put into your camper or RV.

There is also a Commercial Pro Model that is used in the construction industry and is excellent for disaster relief clean up saving companies hundreds of dollars spent on single-use plastic bags. The bag on this unit can hold up to 50 lbs of debris, that has canvas straps and can be used dozens of times. Food Truck operators and Street Vending Carts will see a great benefit because the unit not only acts as a portable debris/recycling collector, but it also has a unique new advertising medium, to display their company logo or events. Tailgaters will love it because they can customize the bag with their favorite team logo. Community and School sports teams, choirs and bands will find this to be an excellent fundraising unit, as it will help to raise money for their organization and advertise their team logo at the same time.

The new sign medium will be another advantage to the homeowner as well as real estate companies because the unit can be secured to the ground to advertise signage for garage sales, house sale or rental suites, and for open house events.

During the launch of the Crowdfunding Campaign on IndieGoGo, the Kwik Bagit Eco/System will range in price from $19 US to $54 US, with volume discounts for multiple orders. Every pledge will receive a Complimentary Leak Proof Compost Bag that has a Zipper Seal that keeps odors in while compost from the kitchen is collected. This simple household bag will help to divert valuable compost material to the residence compost bin or from sending it to the landfill.

As municipalities all over the world struggle with trying to improve Waste Diversion, Compositing and Recycling Practices they are now burdened even more due to China's tough policy of now refusing any more recyclable material from offshore. As a result, Recycling Depots are scrambling to find alternative buyers and measures to deal with the stockpiling of recyclable materials, consequently now much of which is now ending up in the landfills because they have no place to sell it.

Sokyrka states that “Proper recycling starts AT THE SOURCE – in the HOME and by using cloth bags we will reduce the amount of unneeded and unwanted oil-based, oxo-degradable plastic bags from entering the municipal landfills.” He goes on to say, "Our USE ONCE – and DISCARD ATTITUDE needs to change". Sokyrka has also developed a Community Based Seminar called "DIVERT-RECYCLE and REUSE which is a 2-day seminar designed to educate the public about proper waste diversion techniques. This seminar can be purchased on the Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign as well.

He also goes on to say: "As more and more municipalities begin to realize that OIL BASED, OXO-DEGRADABLE PLASTICS BAGS are bad for our environment there will be more emphasis on discouraging residences and businesses from using plastic bags. Aside from having an outright ban on the use of plastic bags – the simple solution is to switch to using PolyCloth Bags that can be washed and used hundreds of times. This could be the beginning of a new approach to smarter waste diversion, and improved composting and recycling practices so that we can to strive for a “GREENER PLANET” and to help our Fragile Environment"!

Image One USA Announces Franchise Growth Plans for Texas

On the heels of Dallas franchise launch, expanding commercial cleaning brand looking for owner-operators across Austin, Houston and San Antonio regions

As economic growth continues across Texas, we’ve made key regions within this state core areas for expansion.”

— Tim Conn, Image One Co-Founder and President

DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the midst of the largest cleaning exhibition in North America — the International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA) Show held in Dallas this year — top commercial cleaning franchise Image One USA is announcing plans to expand across Texas, targeting Austin, Houston and San Antonio as hubs for its growth strategy.

The franchise is actively seeking entrepreneurs who are interested in owning a rewarding, always-in-need business model.

“We’ve successfully taken our concept from a regional cleaning franchise covering the Chicago area to a growing national brand, most recently with the launch of our franchise in Dallas,” said Image One President and Co-Founder Tim Conn. “As economic growth continues across Texas, we’ve made key regions within this state core areas for expansion. We’re prepared to invest our resources into building the franchise with the right owner-operators in the region.”

— Commercial Cleaning Franchise Poised for Growth

Franchising since 2011 and with a corporate headquarters in the Chicago suburbs, Image One launched a new franchise affiliate program in 2015 to further expand the franchise nationwide. Since then, the franchise has added owners in regions across the country, including in Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Myers, Nashville and Orlando.

Image One provides necessary training, tools and support to help franchise affiliates build their business, including teaching franchisees the latest cleaning techniques and empowering them with insights on best-in-class equipment and technology. Ongoing training is delivered both at Image One’s corporate headquarters and onsite at existing client locations to ensure that franchisees continue to grow their own businesses.

— Veteran Friendly Franchise Opportunity

The franchise provides special incentives for veterans who join their system. Veterans choose the program that is right for them: They can either receive 20 percent off the franchise fee, $5,000 per month in guaranteed business for a year, or a no-interest loan to finance their franchise. In fact, Image One’s Dallas franchise owner, Ash Gawande, is an Air Force military veteran who then spent 20 years working in the business world in telecommunications and project management before launching his own business this year as an Image One franchisee.

Regardless of background, Image One’s goal is to help people become their own boss. With a starting investment among the lowest in the entire franchise industry, Image One owners can live out their business ownership dreams as an experienced group of commercial cleaning executives guide them every step of the way.

— How to Start

The cost to open an Image One franchise ranges from $15,000 to $50,000 depending on down payment — the company offers an in-house financing option for qualified candidates — along with equipment purchased and other factors. Startup costs are among the most affordable in the franchise industry compared to other service opportunities.

Opportunities are available in areas across the United States. Visit http://imageoneusa.com and fill out the franchise inquiry form or call 800-223-1985 for more information.
