Reusable bags are great for the environment and it is important to the future of our planet, friends, family, and loved ones that we make a concerted effort to make them a large part of our everyday lives. Plastic bags are a large threat to the environment as well as having a negative impact on our environment, wildlife, and ecosystems. Their dangers are not only related to the large quantities of them that end up in landfills, but also the resources used to produce, transfer, and recycle them, as well as the emissions that result from these processes.

In every study done, reusable bags are rated best for the environment. We believe that in five years, over 90% of the country will be using reusable grocery bags. Similar to the positive effects that a hybrid car has on the environment, our reusable bags take a little petroleum and go a long way. Each of our bags is designed to replace up to 4 plastic bags each time it is used. They are manufactured with a high standard of quality in mind, which is reflected by their lifespan. They can be used weekly for two years or more. Over a lifetime, each bag will replace over 400 plastic bags. A small change here and there equals a big change for our environment.
Reusable bags go a long way in maintaining our environment and ensuring the health and safety of everyone. Aside from the practical uses of a reusable bag, they are also great for saving trees & water, conserving gas & oil, help air pollution and our oceans, save sea creatures, and ultimately help our friends, families, and loved ones. When considering the safety of our environment, preventing pollution, and ultimately preventing global warming, the solution lies in the use of reusable bags. Unlike plastic bags, the production of reusable bags does not lead to emission of harmful greenhouse gases. They are made from non-woven polypropylene that is not only strong but can also be reused for a longer period. Letís say NO to greenhouse gases by stopping the usage of plastic bags and give the environment a fresh lease on life.
