Choose Environmentally Friendly Bamboo Shopping Bags
November 5, 2013 by
Although it might seem strange to some that you can actually fashion bags out of bamboo, this is a process that is not becoming more common, and is very good for the environment. This is because instead of going out and buying a cloth bag for your shopping needs that is going to cost you a fortune simply because it is sold in a designer store, you can instead choose bamboo shopping bags. Not only are you going to be able to tell your friends and family that the bag you have is made of bamboo, you can let them know how it is recycled bamboo. This helps to keep the environment safe by not cutting down new material, but also by conserving and keeping already cut items into the flow of the consumer.
Bamboo shopping bags are 100% biodegradable. This means that if you end up having to throw it out, or perhaps lose it while you are outside, you can be certain that it will eventually decay instead of sitting in a landfill somewhere for hundreds of years. This is because the entire bag is made from recycled items instead of harsh plastics or synthetics. The bamboo components of the bags are also grown naturally instead of through a lab. This means that instead of the bamboo being fed chemicals and things that were created to boost growth, the bamboo that these bags are made of grew by itself with only minor help from people. No pesticides were used in the growing process, nor fertilizers with unnatural components, and the fact that bamboo is the fastest growing in the world means that there is no shortage of it.
The bags can be bought in two different ways. A person who wants bamboo shopping bags in amounts of 2500 or 3000 bags will receive bags that are printed in the United States. These bags have a turnaround of only 1-2 weeks after placing your order and come in many different styles and colors. A person buying customized bags in an amount of 3000 or more will need to wait longer. This is because these bags are going to be manufactured overseas, meaning they have a turnaround anywhere from 60 to 90 days. However, being completely customizable is definitely a great thing, even if you have to wait a while to get your bags back.
The price of these great bamboo shopping bags is inexpensive when you consider the work that goes into them, as well as what they are made of. Starting at only 1.15 each and only increasing if they are made more intricately, this is a definite way to show the world you care about the environment, but also that you love being able to choose a more unique form of item to have the bags made out of.
