Meet the Green Patriot: Jack  Wants Your Trash to Change the World

2 Mins read

Let’s be real, nobody likes dealing with garbage. It’s smelly, gross, and a total time suck. But what if changing your trash bag could actually make a difference? That’s the idea behind BagUps, the brainchild of Jack Licata, a former Air Force captain turned eco-conscious entrepreneur who goes by the moniker “The Green Patriot.”


Licata absolutely hated changing the trash – the fumbling around for a bag, the air-puffing ritual to make it fit the can…it was the worst. So, like any true innovator, he decided to fix the problem himself. Enter BagUps: the trash bag system so genius, it’ll make you wonder why nobody thought of it sooner.


Here’s the deal: BagUps is a roll of connected, biodegradable trash bags that lives right inside your trash can. When one bag’s full, just rip and toss – the next bag is ready and waiting. No more scavenger hunts under the sink, and no more wrestling with flimsy plastic. It’s a game-changer, and we’re seriously impressed.


But Licata isn’t just about convenience. This guy is on a mission. BagUps are shipped directly to you by the US Postal Service, which means zero extra emissions from delivery trucks. They ditch the unnecessary packaging, and the boxes are fully recyclable. Even better, every part of this operation – from assembly to shipping – gives jobs to veterans and people with disabilities. And yes, everything’s made right here in America.


The Green Patriot isn’t stopping there. He’s got a vision for a future filled with biodegradable kitty litter liners, tablecloths, and all kinds of trash bags. Imagine a world where convenience and eco-responsibility go hand in hand.


Licata’s story about refusing to settle for the status quo and proving how everyday choices can have a major impact. “Don’t die with your potential,” he says. If you’ve got a game-changing idea, take the leap – it might just create a cleaner, kinder world.


Why BagUps Matter (And Why You Should Care)


It’s a trash revolution


Say goodbye to the irritating trash bag struggles of the past. Let’s face it, nobody gets excited about taking out the trash. It’s the wrestling match with flimsy bags hiding under the sink, the awkward air-puffing ballet to make it fit the can, and the inevitable leaks. BagUps flips the script. This streamlined system eliminates the hunt for bags and the messy hassle of refills, transforming a universally disliked chore into something way less annoying. It’s a small but mighty revolution in everyday convenience.


Green cred


Biodegradable bags, carbon-conscious shipping, and a mission to reduce plastic’s impact.  BagUps isn’t just about making life easier, it’s about making it greener. Their bags break down naturally, minimizing landfill pollution. Ditching extra delivery trucks with direct USPS shipping cuts down on emissions.  And their overall mission is a bold one: to lessen the harmful impact of plastic on our planet.  This isn’t just lip service; it’s a core part of their business model.


Social good


This company is about creating meaningful jobs and supporting underserved communities. BagUps walks the walk when it comes to social responsibility. By providing employment opportunities specifically for veterans and people with disabilities, they’re empowering communities often overlooked in the workforce. It’s not just about the product, it’s about the positive ripple effects it creates in people’s lives.



Changing the world can start with something as simple as changing your trash bag. BagUps is convenience with a conscience – and honestly, that’s something we can all get behind.
