A staggering five-hundred billion to one-trillion plastic bags are estimated to be consumed by the world annually. Re-usable grocery bags and tote bags are proving to be a solution that could make a difference in these numbers and their benefits go well beyond the environmental impact.
Pollution, use of costly oil, litter and animal safety are just a few of the hazards of such high volume production and consumption of plastic bags. Now, more than ever, environmentally conscious individuals, companies and families are turning to polypropylene, non-woven style grocery totes to carry more than just groceries.
“The options are endless and we are finding our clients are not only purchasing them as trade show give-aways but are giving them to employees as well,” Brett Coplin, VP of Sales of Imprint Marketing Concepts a Ramsey, New Jersey based promotional products company commented. “A multitude of styles, colors and sizes are available to match any logo, brand or theme and they are stronger and bigger than your standard plastic bag too. It seems to be a win for all.”
With so many uses and benefits, it may not be a new item, but the re-usable tote seems to be growing in popularity for the many pluses it provides.
