Having a sick pet is every owner’s worst nightmare. While many things may be out of an owner’s control, making sure their pet’s food is always delicious and contamination-free is something that is completely in an owner’s power. There are a number of theories that are labeled as the “best method” for pet food storage, but it is proven that using the original bag is better than the rest. New Kickstarter project, Bag-Straps™, works with the pet food bag to securely create a tight seal, keeping harmful elements out and freshness in.
Many pet owners believe that using plastic bins to store their large bags of food is the best solution; however, there are factors that make this method dangerous for pets. First, by pouring food into the bin, all the food’s oils and fats settle to the bottom and the food quickly goes bad. This contamination then spreads to the rest of the food and compromises the entire contents of the bin. If the owner doesn’t notice the contamination right away, they could end up serving their furry friend moldy food, making their pet sick. Second, by choosing to throw away the bag in favor of using a bin, the owner won’t know the expiration date. This could lead to an owner unknowingly serving pet food that is expired or recalled and causing their pet to become sick. Third, not placing the lid tightly on a bin can leave food open to harmful elements, such as oxygen, sunlight, moisture and pests, leaving the food to become stale or rancid.
Since pet food bags are specifically designed to protect against contaminants and keep food as fresh as possible, keeping the original bag tightly sealed is the best solution for storing a four-legged friend’s food. This inspired Jason Shepherd to create his product, Bag-Straps™. By using Bag-Straps™ to tightly seal the bag of pet food, owners can be confident in giving their furry friend the freshest food possible without risk of contamination.
“After reading articles about how dangerous it was to give my pup food from a bin, I started looking for better solutions for storing his food,” says Bag-Straps™ founder, Jason Shepherd. “By using the benefits of pet food bags, coupled with the secure seal allowed with Bag-Straps™, I’m not worried about my dog getting sick because I served him spoiled food. Now I have a happy puppy who loves me for his delicious meals!”
Using Bag-Straps™ is an easy and affordable solution to pet food storage, organization and transport. Owners simply have to place the Bag-Straps™ base on top of their tightly rolled bag, then wrap the belt around the bag, slip the belt through the proprietary handle and secure the strap to itself. Since the handle is specifically designed with a slit for users to slip the strap through, no leverage is lost and the bag is securely closed, keeping food fresh and contaminant-free. Bag-Straps™ is now available on Kickstarter for wallet-friendly prices. With early bird specials as low as $15 for a one pack of Bag-Straps™ to up to $45 for those that need more than one, and regular-priced rewards ranging from $20 to $50, there is a Bag-Straps™ reward for all backers.
In order for Shepherd to bring Bag-Straps™ to pet owners everywhere, he needs to raise $40,000 during his Kickstarter campaign.

Bag-Straps™ are a no-clip solution to closing large bags created in 2013 by Jason Shepherd. Inspired by a need to seal and transport pet food effectively, Shepherd created Bag-Straps™ as a solution to the problem. He then realized that his device had multiple uses and could be effective for all kinds of large bags, including charcoal, lawn products and many others.
