Join the Innovation Challenge
To help meet the moment, we’re searching for innovative design solutions to take the place of today’s retail bag. We’re inviting inventors and innovators from around the world to submit their solutions to the Beyond the Bag Challenge.
Launching in partnership with global design firm IDEO, the challenge invites innovators, suppliers, designers and problem-solvers to submit their ideas for game-changing sustainable bag solutions. The challenge aims to identify potential solutions that meet diverse customer and regional needs in a more sustainable way, with an initial focus on implementation in the United States.
Have an idea or a solution for an environmentally-friendly single-use bag, retail bag alternative, reusable model or an altogether new delivery system? Submit it through the Beyond the Bag website from August 3 until
September 10 September 4 (UPDATED).
Closed Loop Partners will work with winning solutions to develop potential piloting opportunities and bring their design toward a reality. By working as a collective, we are hopeful we can build a better future. And we invite others across the bag value chain — including retailers, suppliers, materials recovery facilities, municipalities, advocacy groups and more — who share that hope to join us in seeking solutions.
