Top 5 Reasons Reusable Bags Are A Smart Investment

Thinking of making the switch to reusable shopping bags?  Here are five reasons why you should.

Reduce, reuse, and recycle. These three words have been deeply embedded in our vocabulary for decades. Many cities and towns have enacted laws that reinforce the importance of reducing our waste. One such law is the banning of plastic bags that many establishments previously used. Customers are now using reusable shopping totes to help reduce their carbon footprint.

  1. Reusable shopping bags reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

    It’s no surprise that landfills are growing at an unprecedented rate.  With so much day to day waste and limited space to put it, the less we toss away, the better for everyone.  If grocery shoppers made the switch to reusable grocery totes, like The Jute Shopper in lieu of plastic bags, the amount of trash would significantly decline.

  2. Brands could be seen in a whole new light.

    Companies are always looking for ways to get their name out to the public and in front of their consumers.  Why not put your brand’s message on a reusable tote bag and let the consumers be a walking advertisement?  Every trip to the farmers market or a kids soccer game brings you brand exposure and shows that your company is an environmentally conscious company.

  3. Reusable grocery bags are convenient.  

    Convenience is a staple in many households. The ability to be able to grab a reusable shopping tote in a pinch is so much easier than having to sort through a stash of plastic bags to find one without a hole in it.  If you don’t have any handy or are in a hurry, then you will be glad that you had that reusable bag!  Convenience doesn’t have to mean boring.  Stand out with unique colors and styles like you can find onThe Coloured Jute Shopper with a Pocket.

  4. Holding capacity of reusable shopping bags can’t be beat.

    Small plastic bags are limited on the amount of products and weight they are able to hold.  Reusable bags are able to hold so much more than their predecessors, the plastic bag.  For example, The Large Jute Market Bag can hold up to 10 kilos!That means fewer trips needed to carry your goodies inside.  Another bonus, no more worrying about rips and tears or having products spill out of the bottom of those non-durable plastic bags

  5. Reusable bags could save you money.

    Did you know that many grocery stores and chains offer monetary incentives to those customers who use reusable bags?  These stores will deduct the allotted price per bag used off of your bill and voila, instant savings!  A one-time investment now turns into a way to save with every use.  Who doesn’t like saving money and discounts?

Whatever your reasoning, environmental or personal, ditching plastic bags and opting to use reusable shopping bags whenever possible is a solid way to help reduce the single use plastic crisis!
