Reusable tote bags are a popular alternative to single-use plastic bags. They're also a great way to advertise your business!
If you're concerned about the planet and looking for an environmentally conscious way to market your business at the same time, custom reusable tote bags might be the promotional item you're looking for. They're useful, affordable, highly customizable, and one of my most popular "eco-friendly" products.
Did you know?
As of writing, there are 8 states that have completely banned single-use plastic bags. Many towns and cities throughout the U.S. have done similar. Canada (the entire country) will ban plastic bags by the end of 2021 and many predict other countries to follow suit.
Why are single-use plastic bags such a problem?
A quick google search for "the problem with plastic bags" returns a ton of websites with doom and gloom statistics about how our oceans and landfills are overflowing with plastics. I won't bother you with the details here, but it's safe to say, that it's pretty scary stuff.
Are tote bags better for the environment?
Yes! When we reduce our reliance on plastic and choose reusable tote bags, we're helping to make the world a better place. That's why it's important you bring a reusable tote every time you go shopping! It's really not that difficult.
Are custom tote bags a good way to market a business?
Absolutely. Not only are they affordable, but they're also highly functional. By choosing a custom tote bag, you're helping to make the world a better place and you're converting those people carrying your bag into walking billboards for your business.
With cities, towns, states, and even countries moving away from plastic bags, now is the time to jump on this hot marketing trend!!!
Warning - Beware cheap tote bags!
Like with all hot trends, there's always going to be a race to see who can produce them the cheapest. Please don't be fooled by "too good to be true" deals online.
If you buy a cheap bag and it falls apart, just remember that your company's name, logo, and contact info will be visible on that bag sitting in the landfill or floating in the ocean.
Do yourself and the environment a big favor, and choose a quality tote bag that can be used year after year!
