LEARN WHY

We believe in leaving a place better than we found it. As a developing world, we are entering scary waters. Picking up litter is one simple step we can ALL take to make (and keep!) our surroundings beautiful for generations to come.

INSPIRE CHANGE

We are so incredibly humbled by the people supporting our mission. We love to see when YOU inspire OTHERS to give Just1Bag a try. This is how movements multiply - like a ripple effect on the water! 

About us

We’re the Burgess Family. Phil, Sarah, Poppy, and Toby. We’re Brits living on the South Shore of Boston, Massachusetts in the USA. Feeling overwhelmed by everything going on in the world that we couldn’t influence, we decided to take some small, positive steps on something within our control, hoping we’d have an impact and maybe inspire others to take some small steps too. We’ve met some fantastic people on this journey, some who’ve collected #just1bag to add to our tally, and others who’ve collected hundreds and inspired others to do the same. We’d love for you to join in, spread the word and help inspire change, one act at a time.

“Just1bag2020 is a simple, yet practical way to bring our people together across the world in the pursuit of a shared goal, the preservation of our natural environment. I love the fact that it started from humble but focused beginnings and has now reached so many people globally. We'll definitely keep spreading the word throughout the teams at Reward Gateway and with our clients too."

Rob Marsh, Community Innovation Lead & Foundation Manager, Reward Gateway.
