Meet the Bag Snaggers of the Bette Midler-founded New York Restoration Project.

For years, New York Restoration Project (NYRP) has advocated for the citywide use of the Bag Snagger, a clever device that easily and inexpensively removes plastic shopping bags and other debris from trees.

Based on a patented design by jeweler Tim McClelland, the Bag Snagger’s fiberglass pole telescopes with extensions to a total length of 40 feet. The innovative pruning hook on the end allows users to pull or cut bags and other debris from trees with a twist of the pole.
