Then it all changed. Suddenly we were offered the choice of paper or plastic bags with the less expensive plastic bags practically being thrown at us.
Nowadays, we know much better about the environmental problems these cheap plastic bags can cause. Our landfills are piled high with them and wildlife is being negatively affected too. Many shops have begun to do something about it.
Free plastic shopping bags will soon be a thing of the past and many shops are encouraging people to either purchase a reusable bag or bring their own.
Although a lot of people believe that this is a good thing, many find it infuriating. But times are changing and they will continue to change.
This is one reason why reusable promotion shopper bags are so popular. They offer large print areas on two sides. Give your customers or employees printed reusable shopper bags and they will carry your logo with them whenever and wherever they shop.
Cotton and jute shopping bags are very popular heavy-duty bags. They do not just need to be used for shopping of course. Many people use them for other activities and why not? They are strong, long lasting eco friendly bags that look fantastic.
Eco friendly promotional bags are manufactured to last. You never need worry about your groceries falling through a cheap plastic bag and smashing on the pavement again. Such eco reusable bags actually makes shopping a much easier and nicer experience.
Long lasting jute and cotton promotional bags are available from promotional gift suppliers to be printed with your logo and details. If you give your clients one or even a few promotional eco bags printed with your details, they will think about your business, products and/or services whenever they use the bag. That can’t be a bad thing.
Social Responsibility is now high on the agenda of most companies and organisations. Many now have environmental targets to meet. Promotional cotton bags and jute bags are an excellent way to promote your company brand.
So what are you waiting for? Check out the many different sizes and materials these popular promotional bags are available in. Ask for samples – they are normally free – and check out just a nice these gifts can be.
