One of the biggest environmental issues these days is the overuse of plastic bags. Shoppers face this dilemma every day at the checkout when they are asked, “Would you like a plastic bag?” While most would like to say “No,” there are still a large number of people who do use plastic bags. Some stores do give out paper bags as an alternative, but they aren’t a whole lot better (and some say they aren’t better at all). While paper bags can be recycled, not many people actually do recycle paper. Plastic bags are used more often and, though they are convenient, they generally are not biodegradable and are common litter items.
When deciding what type of bag to use for shopping items, try to make a statement with an eco-friendly bag. Such bags do not harm the environment and the fact that they can be reused gives them a distinct advantage, as well. Businesses, too, now understand the importance of being green and eco-friendly in order to appear innovative and helpful in the public eye. A great way this can be accomplished is through the creation of reusable bags with company branding on them. These branded eco-friendly bags made out of jute, cotton, or canvas make good promotional materials. They put the business in the public spotlight and strengthen the business’ views on its environmental policy.
A high-quality, environmentally safe bag is manufactured from materials that will not harm the natural environment. Production of these bags does not include the use of harmful chemicals, and the bags are biodegradable. There are no negative impacts made on the environment with the production of eco-friendly bags. Reusable bags are a cost-efficient way of preserving the natural environment and its resources. Because these bags come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and customizable designs, they are the perfect substitute for conventional totes and hazardous plastic shopping bags.
Bag It Don’t Bin It is one company providing such bags. It is a UK-based printer that prints cotton, canvas, and jute bags that can be branded with the company logo. As a wholesaler, the company only accepts bulk orders (i.e. over one hundred bags). It, however, has a sister company called Doodle-Bag that lets you design your own bag and there is no minimum order value.
