SC Johnson has acquired reusable storage bags brand, Stasher.
Stasher bags are made from silicone and are designed to be used across a wide range of temperatures for uses including freezing and cooking.
Fisk Johnson, chairman and CEO of SC Johnson, said Stasher is a fast-growing, innovative brand.
“Stasher bags are an excellent complement to our portfolio of trusted, quality brands,” Johnson said.
Kat Nouri, founder of Stasher said the company was “beyond excited” for Stasher to be joining SC Johnson.
“SC Johnson has long been committed to moving the needle on the plastic waste crisis by shifting consumer habits and working with governments and NGOs.
“We at Stasher have been leading a movement by providing a durable, reusable alternative to single-use plastic bags, and through this acquisition we can now scale our mission beyond our reach,” Nouri said.
In September SC Johnson announced it was on track to meet its 2025 commitments to help reduce plastic waste and boost recycling, with 94 per cent of the company’s plastic packaging now recyclable, reusable or compostable.
In October SC Johnson and Plastic Bank launched a global partnership to stop plastic waste from entering the ocean.
