Help Preserve Mother Nature With Environment Friendly Bags

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 210

The world is now starting to become an eco-friendly place. Many people are more aware of the negative impact of diminishing natural resources, global warming and deforestation. Many companies are now taking a pro-active stand in maintaining a healthy world by innovating ways they can deliver products and services. One way they do this is by replacing plastic bags with environment friendly bags.

These bags fit people's evolving lifestyle where the current mantra is 'go green'. You cut back on the damage that standard paper and plastic bags bring to the environment by using these reusable bags.

Eco-friendly bags vs. plastic bags

One of the benefits of using environment friendly bags is that these accessories are now widely available. The demand for plastic accessories is now decreasing. Manufacturers have now stopped using harmful chemicals in producing their bags.

Using eco-friendly bags also benefits the world's atmosphere. Take note that some toxic substances used for plastic bags pose serious health hazards. Factories release harmful chemicals that can destroy the earth's ozone layer. As a result, people become more exposed to the sun's harmful ultra-violet rays. They develop sicknesses such as skin cancer, sunburn, and direct DNA damage.

Recycling centers actually produce air pollution too by trying to eliminate plastic bags. Landfills might have more space but it will be at the expense of the atmosphere.

Paper bags also have its disadvantages. Paper bags may be biodegradable but millions of trees are cut down every month just to produce them.

The more establishments choose to use paper bags, the more trees are cut down. This results to deforestation as there are companies that do not even replace the trees they use.

Many species lose their homes to deforestation. It also causes global warming and flash floods, resulting to damages to properties and lives. Eco-friendly bags are undoubtedly better alternatives to paper and plastic bags.

Shopping with environment friendly bags

They provide a cost-efficient solution in carrying your items because they are durable. You do not need to buy shopping bags every time because you can reuse them. They are washable and can last for many years.

There are many bags available in different sizes and forms to meet the shopper's needs. Sizes can vary from small tote bags to extra large bags, allowing shoppers to carry many items.

Environment friendly bags are also available in various designs, styles and colors to suit the shopper's mood and need. Lately, these bags have become quite trendy.
