ChicoBag is on a mission to reduce and eliminate single-use paper and plastic bags by providing a smart, durable, and tasteful alternative. ChicoBag offers a wide variety of fashionable, lightweight, environmentally friendly reusable shopping bags and packs that can be easily stuffed into an integrated pouch.
The ChicoBag story: During a visit to the local landfill in 2004, the founder of ChicoBag, Andy Keller, took note of all the single-use plastic bags that seemed to dominate the land fill. On his way home he began to notice these plastic bags everywhere. He was horrified and decided that day to stop using plastic bags and that something had to be done about this problem. Then Andy got an idea, bought a second hand sewing machine, and began creating what would become ChicoBag. Today ChicoBag is the industry leader in reusable bags and totes.
This years featured filmmakers, and one very lucky audience member who attends the Shortz! Film Fest will receive one of these bags as a gift, a “swag bag” so-to-speak.
Thank you ChicoBag for sponsoring the 2012 Shortz! Film Fest!
