Linda Fritz is an engineer, homemaker, ad agency business owner, farmer and eco-warrior. In 2012, Linda Fritz set out to tackle the issue of grocery bag waste. The average American uses 500 plastic grocery bags per year, and most cheap reusable bags cannot be recycled. As Linda was transporting her sustainably-grown edamame to market in reusable produce bins she came up with the idea of the CRESBI crate system to replace both types of bags. And since a single CRESBI crate can replace up to 6 plastic bags, one of her multi-pack systems will eliminate ever needing another bag again. Besides repurposing reusable bags into place mats and pet rugs to keep them from landfills, Linda is also designing a new patent-pending Sustainable Produce Container made of cardboard for her cherry tomatoes and for other produce farmers. She also has many videos on her youtube channel she’s made for anti-littering campaigns and being green in general. Linda loves playing sports, being outdoors, and hanging out with her pets and family.
