Use HealthGuard UVC to sanitize reusable grocery bags

Did you know that approximately 380 billion plastic bags are used in the US every year, adding up to 1,200 bags per resident, yet only 1-2% end up getting recycled? It takes 12 million barrels of oil to make that many bags and the overwhelming majority will end up clogging our landfills and contributing to the overwhelming pollution that makes the world an unhealthier place for us and other forms of wildlife to live.

Switching over to reusable grocery bags is a small but extremely significant step that can be taken to protect our ecosystem and reduce plastic waste. However, reusable bags can accumulate more and more bacteria and germs after each use.

In a recent study, bags were swab tested and it was determined that 64% of reusable grocery bags were contaminated and 30% had bacterial counts higher than what is acceptable for drinking water! Why not just run them through the wash then? Unfortunately, laundering the bags is not enough and has been shown to leave a lot of dangerous microbes lingering behind. Not even boiling water is sufficient to kill all bacteria.

Our soapbox

A swan sits in its nest made of hazardous plastic bags

Plastic bags are wreaking havoc on our ecosystem

HealthGuard UVC is 100% supportive of eco-friendly attitudes and policies. As a result, HGUVC Grocery is primarily intended to be offered as a customer service by grocery stores to help spur on the smart and environmentally sound transition to reusable bags.

In order to help offset costs for stores that choose to offer this service to their patrons, this device’s stand is designed such that reusable bags can be hung and displayed along the bottom of HGUVC Grocery. This feature encourages patrons to make the switch while generating revenue and cutting costs for each store by helping promote their own brand of purchasable reusable bags, the adoption of which will also reduce the need to purchase as many plastic bags for customer consumption. In addition, there is plenty of open advertising space along the side paneling of the device (at least 15 square feet!), helping to offset costs even further!

Implemented correctly, HGUVC Grocery will pay for itself in no time and continue to generate strong revenues long afterwards by offering extra ad space and increased consumer confidence in your brand and policies. When it comes to reaffirming your store’s commitment to going green and encouraging sustainable policies that will help make our world a cleaner and healthier place to live, HealthGuard UVC is one of the best and most affordable options on the market!
