Saving the environment has been a lot on everyone’s minds lately, hasn’t it? If you’ve watched Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, or sat through an hour of the popular French documentary ‘Home’, you know what I’m talking about. You would know as well that every little bit counts – and the reverse is also true: whatever you do, no matter how small, can affect the environment adversely.
From big to small: cotton bags offer a great way for you to shop.
This being said, it is now common to see shoppers from around the globe toting those fashionable paper and cotton bags around. Instead of using plastic bags, the trend is now in cotton, jute, paper, woven, and canvas bags which are made with high-quality materials and are completely environmentally-safe and reusable as well. Unlike plastic bags which can be flimsy and impossible to reuse, you can bring along fabric bags that are easily foldable, reusable and biodegradable. And imagine this – you are making a fashion statement every single time you shop, even if you are just popping to the corner store to buy a carton of milk.
You don’t have to be an out-and-out, die-hard environmentalist to contribute to the cause either. Simply using a recyclable bag can have a big effect on the earth’s resources. Enterprises have also jumped on the bandwagon, creating and giving away bags that are sturdy, durable and attractive. As an advertising method, paper, jute, canvas and cotton bags are the new trend.
Fabric bags are the way to go – and numerous enterprises have seen the light.
There is a wide variety of customised cotton bags for all types of businesses nowadays. The list of businesses making use of fabric bags includes retailers (the pioneers in paper and cotton bags), food and beverage enterprises, corporations, and more. Reusable bags are also ideal for exhibits and events and as souvenirs and giveaways.
Fabric bags like these can be printed with an array of designs, colours and logos. Cotton bags, for one, are lightweight and can be easily folded to fit into a purse. My wife always has a folded cotton bag inside her purse, so that whenever she goes out and buys something, she needn’t worry anymore about contributing to environmental problems with harmful plastic bags.
As a promotional medium, cotton bags are less expensive.
For enterprises, fabric bags are a great way to advertise, as they can be reused anytime and anywhere. Fabric bags – whether they are made from cotton, jute, woven pp, canvas, and non-woven pp – give utmost value for money as a promotional tool. They are inexpensive and last for a long time. There’s no longer any need for an expensive advertising campaign – all an enterprise needs is one customer walking around with their cotton bag in tow, and it can do wonders for their overall image.
