Eco Friendly Shopping Bags
Australia’s recent ban on the free issue of plastic bags at retail outlets has not been universally popular with customers. However, those of us who care for the planet realise it’s a sensible decision and should drastically reduce the number of single use plastic bags in circulation.
Plastic bags have only been around for fifty years or so but, because they take much longer than that to decompose, most of them made during that time are still with us. They go to landfill, litter the country or go into the sea, with one estimate stating that there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish by 2050. Read More...
The ban on free plastic bags is part of the trend to reduce the amount of plastic in circulation. It’s the sensible thing to do and so most of us have now to find an alternative way to bring our shopping home.
The Ethical Alternative to Plastic Bags
Our eco shopping bags are the answer for every shopper. Don’t waste your money buying flimsy supermarket bags that won’t last. Ours may cost a little more but they’re much stronger and more durable, and are good for numerous trips to the shops no matter what you put in them.
Furthermore, their stylish good looks mean you’ll be quite happy to use our bags and won’t forget to take them with you. They’re available in a variety of styles, sizes, patterns and colours so that you can choose one that fits in with your personality, or several to suit your mood and different uses. The also fold down easily for convenient storage.
In common with all our products, every bag is superbly made so it lasts a long time and will continue to look good. In contrast to plastic, our bags are made from natural materials that will decompose readily should the product eventually go to landfill. We use cotton, canvas or jute that’s ethically sourced from trusted suppliers and is then made into bags at a factory where carbon emissions are minimised and there are no toxic by-products. The whole process is designed to be environmentally friendly so it’s much more sustainable than that for plastic bag production and use.
Shop with a Clear Conscience
Our aim is to supply bags that are ethically and sustainably produced, are reasonably priced, practical and look great. Unlike a plastic bag that may be used once and then thrown away, our eco shopping bags are good for thousands of uses before you’ll need to think of replacing them. Even then, they can be recycled or, if they are thrown away, they won’t be a threat to the environment as plastic is.
Shopping, especially food shopping, is something you have to do on a regular basis. But at least you can now do it with a clear conscience, knowing you’re not using plastic bags that will be a danger to our planet for hundreds of years. Instead, by using our eco shopping bags, you can shop sustainably and reduce polluting plastic. And the more you shop, the more you’re saving, so that’s a great incentive for a spot of retail therapy if you need one.
