Recycled bags are selling out fast this year and are becoming a popular conscience choice for many retail customers. Supermarkets, clothes shops, leisure centres and practically anywhere else that supplies plastic bags are reforming their old ways and thinking about the planet by becoming greener. If they are not supplying recycled carrier bags, they are promoting ‘bags for life’ or are encouraging people to reuse old bags and take responsibility.
Who would have thought that a plastic bag could have such a negative impact on the planet? Did you know that the amount of petroleum used to make just 18 plastic bags could drive a car for a mile? Or that It can take an estimated 500 years for a bag to decay in a modern landfill sight? Or maybe you are familiar with the fact that the worldwide consumption of plastic bags is over 500 BILLION amounting to the use of over 1 million bags per minute!? They really are some statistics to think about!! I think it is clear that recycled bags are certainly the way forward.
Recycled bags have the same qualities as a normal carrier bag; great strength, robust nature, smooth attractive finish and available in many shapes, sizes and colours. It is important to note that you don’t have to go for a paper bag to be greener – you couldn’t even tell the difference between the two plastics, however it is a great point to plug. Customers like to think they are buying from a responsible source.
You don’t have to just think about promotional recycled carrier bags either! The hotline group now supply Organic Rucksacks, natural cotton shoppers, tote bags and tradeshow bags. All promotional bags can be printed with your company name, logo and any other information you require. This week’s most popular recycled bag is the economy cotton printed tote bag.
