The world is using the equivalent of one and half planets to support life on Earth. There are many things we can do to help make less of an impact. Individually, it never seems like enough. Some even decide to not participate in lessening the damaging effects humans have on the planet in any way what so ever. This is not because they don’t want a better world, but because they feel helpless when thinking that just one person has a little impact on the whole giant world. They’re right. It takes all of us… or at least as many of us as we can get!One easy thing one can do that makes a major impact is to use reusable shopping bags. In the average week, we shop at least a few times. Think of all that plastic going to waste!
It’s time to make a difference, and what better way to do so than to have fun doing it. Personal your shopping experience with style by purchasing a custom reusable grocery bags or two! It’s fun to give as gifts, perhaps with an image or message reminding your loved recipient of a fond memory the two of you share. You can even choose to kill two birds with one stone by personalizing your shopping bag with your business logo. Go green is the craze these days (and a great one at that). Plus, who doesn’t want to give themselves a little extra advertising and promotions?!Another great way to personalize your reusable bag is to promote the main cause! Sometimes it just takes giving someone a little reminder or awareness. There are plenty of “go green” dates that people might participate in if they knew about it. March 23rd, for example is national Earth Hour. Why not share the message with the public by informing them it’s time for lights out from 8:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. on that date on your reusable bag?
Worldwide, over one million plastic bags are used every minute and a single plastic bag takes up to a thousand years to degrade! When you think about it this way, you realize how much of an impact one individual truly does have in just making one simple change in their life. A custom reusable shopping bag is a great way to lessen your carbon imprint on this beautiful home of ours.
