About Shopping Bag

Despite the length of time the shopping bag has been around, they have not improved that much. In fact most would say they are worse in many ways than they used to be. There are three major types of shopping bags in use today. Two disposable styles of bags are commonly called paper and plastic, both of which were named after the material they are made from. The final type of bag, the reusable bag can be made from a variety of materials but is most commonly made out of some kind of sturdy material like fabric that will stand up to repeated use.

All three bags have both benefits and drawbacks to their use. The paper bag is stronger than most plastic bags and decomposes much faster in the landfill after use than any of the other types of bag. The down-side to paper bags is that they are designed to only really be held from the bottom in most cases which makes carrying more than two or three bags at once very difficult. Being made from paper, the bags also react poorly when exposed to wet conditions. This makes using paper bags to carry anything that might leak or that is damp and frosted a dangerous situation as the bottom could fall out of the bag at any time. Exposure to rainy weather does paper bags no favor either.

Plastic bags have several improvements over their paper counter parts. They come in a large variety of shapes and sizes compared to paper bags and almost all of them have easy to use handles that makes the weight of your purchase the only real limit to how many bags you can carry. Plastic bags are also highly resistant to water and even if they fail to keep the moisture outside of the bag no amount of rain will cause the bag to fall apart. The biggest down-side to plastic bags is that they are plastic, and thus take a very long time to break down in landfills. There also seems to be a growing trend to make plastic bags weaker and thinner in most places lately to save the company a bit of money. While a well made plastic bag can be even stronger than a paper one, well made plastic bags are far and few between in today’s stores.

The final most common type of shopping bag are the reusable bags. They are made from a variety of sturdy materials, everything from cloth to insulating foil but they all follow the same idea of a shopping bag that can be used over and over again. If everyone started to use reusable shopping bags, it would save several business a lot of money and keep a lot of the former bag types out of the landfill. Unfortunately the reusable bags have their drawbacks like all of the other bags. The cloth and fabric style of reusable bags can get dirty and unsanitary if forced to carry anything that might drip, run or smear into the bag. This makes using such bags for any unpacked groceries a serious problem. There is also the problem that most of the reusable bags for sale are rather small, expensive and sold separately. A decently sized family making a big trip to the grocery store might have five, ten or even twenty bags of food to unload from the car and bring it up to the house. Making all those repeated trips on a single bag would not be fun.


Tote Bags Benefits

More and more stores and retail outlets are offering their customers a choice of their in-house custom tote bags so that the need of using plastic shopping bags is reduced. Stores such as Wal-Mart, Tesco, The Body Shop, IKEA and Starbucks are offering customers their very own custom tote bags to encourage their customers to use these bags while shopping as it is re-usable unlike plastic bags and it is also eco-friendly.

There are many benefits to eco-friendly custom tote bags. The fact that they are re-usable is not only beneficial to individuals but also the environment. The amount of plastic bags produced annually is much more compared to the amount that is recycled. The production of plastic bags is already harmful to the environment as they emit toxic chemicals so the more is produced, the more pollution occurs. Also, plastic takes over 1000 years just to decompose and in this process, toxic chemicals are also released into the atmosphere. Not only that, plastic bags pollute the ocean and clog drains and pipelines, causing more and more damage, killing thousands of animals each year.

This is part of the reason why more and more environmentally conscious people are opting to use custom tote bags as it will definitely lessen our demand for plastic bags, its production as well as the associated pollution and oil consumption. By re-using tote bags, you support environmental efforts. Reusing just one bag in your daily life can “eliminate” the use of approximately 6 plastic bags every week, which accumulates to 288 bags a year. If people can adopt the use of reusing bags for their entire life, they can reduce the need for 20,000 plastic bags in their life.

There are even more reasons to use eco-friendly custom tote bags beyond the environmental issue. Tote bags can carry twice as much items than plastic shopping bags can and there are far more easier and comfortable to carry, looks much more trendier for the eco-friendly fashionista and this leaves your hands for other things. Many tote bags are made from environmentally friendly fabrics, such as hemp or recycled cotton which are non-toxic and non-allergenic.
