Saving the Earth One Bag at a Time
October 17, 2013 by
A reusable shopping bag is a bag that can be used multiple times for multiple purposes. Bags from Custom Earth Promos are made of non-woven Polypropylene. This material has been declared by environmentalists as a miracle fabric. Durable, machine washable and 100% recyclable, these bags can last for years. These bags come in a variety of colors and sizes from a small 12 inches to a large 20 inches, and a thickness of 80 to 100 GSM. This means “grams per square meter”, a measurement unit to describe the thickness of material.
Did you know that it can take about 1,000 years for plastic to degrade? One of the most common kind of ocean trash is plastic bags which can harm marine life in any number of ways. Many places worldwide have banned the use of plastic bags, with Italy being the first in 1989 and now many cities in the United States. The numbers of reusable bags being distributed in the United States was 504 million in 2008 compared to 130 million in 1999. The numbers are steadily rising as people are becoming more environmentally friendly. One reusable shopping bag can replace hundreds of plastic bags.
Everyone can benefit from a reusable shopping bag. A person using the bag obviously is doing their part to keep the environment safer and cleaner. Less plastic produced or disposed of means less toxins in the environment to affect both people and animals. Adults aren’t the only ones who can use reusable bags, as they make great tote bags for children’s toys and books.
These eco-friendly bags can be used for all kinds of purposes. The bigger ones can be taken on a mall trip to keep purchases in. Medium sized bags are perfect for grocery shopping. Smaller bags are great for kids to carry their own toys, books or games around with them. One of the best advantages of getting bags from Custom Earth Promos is advertising! The low prices and custom printing ensure that your name and brand is out there by the hundreds, as portable advertisements used daily by people going green.
