Our selection of best Reusable shopping bags
Why is it important to choose reusable shopping bags?
Each year, an estimated 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. That’s over one million per minute!
In average, we only recycle one plastic bag in every 200 we use, and the life cycle of a single-use carrier bag is only 12 minutes, before being tossed. Unfortunately, this bag will take hundreds of years to break down…
What can we do?
Use a reusable shopping bag. Each time you reuse it, you reduce its impact on Earth. So don’t forget your reusable bag,you never know when you might need it. The bags we prefer are the foldable ones. They are so easy to carry, super light, and so handy!
Cotton tote bags are really trendy and very resistant, but remember that cotton bags have a bigger footprint due to their production, because cotton is very resource consuming. If you go for a cotton tote bag, make sure to use it and ruse as many times as you can, don’t lose it! Forget about single-use plastic bags, always carry with you a reusable shopping bag 😉
And remember, whichever option you choose, use it and reuse it as many times as you can!
