To show our support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will be donating 5% of all proceeds of our new 33 gallon pink trash bags to the Susan G. Komen® Breast Cancer foundation for the entire month of October.
“This is a wonderful way for a contractor, office building or small business owner to show their support in a dramatic, visual way,” explained PlasticPlace Marketing Manager, Deborah Locher.
“Using pink bags instead of the typical black or clear ones can also send a positive message to employees that your company is concerned about national health issues. Plus, it’s great PR.”
Fashion and Function
These pink trash bags not only look good, they perform good as well. We offer a 31-33 gallon size which is perfect for your 32 gallon round Brute trash can or wheeled toter. Plus, at 1.5 MIL thick, these bags are highly puncture and tear resistant and can easily hold your yard trimmings and items with rough edges or sharp corners.

About National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM)
October has been recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month since 1985. The goal, as stated on the American Cancer Society’s website is to “increase awareness about the importance of the early detection of breast cancer.”
About Breast Cancer
Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women. According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2007 over 200,000 women in the United States were diagnosed with breast cancer—and over 40,000 died from the disease. In 2011, the American Cancer Society estimated that there were approximately 230,000 new cases of women with breast cancer.
