The Bank Bag program takes place across the country at our lakes, rivers, and some of the most populated beaches along the coast.
With the goal to leave our waterways better than the way we found them, thousands of pounds of trash have been picked up thanks to the bank bag incentive.
How It Works
The Bank Bag incentive program utilizes community resources to make a difference in local waterways. Bank Bags are provided to patrons, tournament organizations, retail customers, and schools. Individuals who return a filled Bank Bag receive a $25 aftco.com gift card.
By removing trash from the shoreline, participants clean up the habitat and preserve the fishery for years to come. Every minute, the equivalent of one garbage truck filled with plastic is dumped into our oceans from land-based sources. Programs like these — along with a reduction in plastic consumption — will help counteract this trend.

We first unveiled the Bank Bag program in 2019, along with a number of other freshwater conservation initiatives like the Bass Bus Live Release Boat. Since then, we have partnered with an extensive network that includes B.A.S.S. Nation, colleges, conservation groups, retailers, and local tournaments across the country.
