The Founders of BagWasher

Introducing the BagWasher – a meticulously designed game-changer targeting plastic waste on both local and global scales. Fueled by my personal journey of handwashing numerous zip-top plastic bags, I questioned: “Why hasn’t a dishwasher-safe zip-top bag cleaner been created?”
Welcome to the world of innovation and eco-conscious living! I’m Sheri Shelton-Butler, a passionate cook, dedicated parent, fearless adventurer, and a driven entrepreneur. Known as the “Bag Lady,” I’m excited to introduce my brainchild, the groundbreaking BagWasher, aimed at combating the global plastic crisis. As an active member of the Woman Inventors movement in the US, my commitment to this cause is unwavering.
Traditionally viewed as single-use, the “zip-top plastic bag” has hidden potential. Designed for efficiency, user-friendliness, and recyclability, these bags are often discarded due to washing inconveniences, contributing to our planet’s plastic crisis.
Driven by my conviction, I embarked on a mission to seamlessly integrate sustainability into daily life. The BagWasher, a clever dishwasher-friendly contraption, reinvigorates your trusty zip-top companions with every cycle, fostering a more sustainable future.
Join me in revolutionizing our perception of zip-top bags. Let’s create a future where convenience and sustainability coexist, combating plastic waste. Discover the BagWasher and be part of our movement toward a cleaner, greener tomorrow. Explore the BagWasher and its remarkable features at [https://ziploc.com/en/Sustainability-and-Safety]. Together, as catalysts for change, we’re more than Bag Ladies and Gents – we’re shaping our planet’s destiny. Greetings, I’m Frank, also known as Trip among friends. Holding a BS in Architecture from the University of Virginia (Class of ’82) and a former US Marine (1982-1993), my journey has led me to become a certified kitchen & bath designer associated with the National Kitchen and Bath Association since 2016.
Inspired by Sheri’s quest to rewash zip-top bags, we’ve successfully brought that vision to life. With a patented design and multiple proven prototypes, we’re now ready for the next step – funding. Our journey included crafting prototypes using innovative 3D printing, while the final BagWasher will be produced using recyclable PPE through injection molding in Seattle. Plastic waste, whether in landfills or oceans, is a global concern. The BagWasher addresses this by empowering individuals to effortlessly reuse plastic zip-top bags, reduce plastic usage, and promote recycling. By extending the life cycle of these bags, we’re taking a step towards alleviating plastic pollution.

“I am a true believer in “recycle and reuse”. I tested the prototype in both sizes, you would think that some zip-top bags are just too dirty to wash and reuse.  With the BagWasher I can wash and reuse bags even those that I marinated meat or fish in.  Incredibly clean!  And saves me a lot of money on expensive zip-top bags. Thank You BagWasher!!!”

The dedication to making the steps towards a better tomorrow can happen one bag at a time.

Mission

Our mission is to make the BagWasher a standard kitchen accessory.  And when a person buys the set they will receive accurate recycling information, accurate to their area, on where to recycle the plastic film that these bags are made of.  Along with more accurate recycling information for their particular area.  It is our mission to be part of the change to educate and promote the positive effects of reusing and reducing and then recycling.
