AFTCO's Bank Bag program takes place across the country at our lakes, rivers and some of the most populated beaches along the coast. This program helps to fulfill our 10% Pledge to Protect and Conserve and our Fisheries First Sustainability Pledge.
How It Works
Our 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.

"Utilizing the AFTCO Bank Bag to collect trash and other debris from the Lake St. Clair Metropark area is just one way that the high school bass fishing anglers are effectively giving back to the sport they love. With approximately 150 high school fishing teams in the state of Michigan, it is one of the hot beds of scholastic bass fishing."
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.
