03 Dec A Bag Is For Life, Not Just For Christmas
With Christmas fast approaching, did you know that in December 2017, it was estimated that an astonishing 114,000 tonnes of plastic packaging would be thrown away in the UK over the festive period? This was predicted to be followed by a staggering 88 square kilometres of wrapping paper and 300,000 tonnes of Christmas card packaging! With all this rubbish clogging up landfill sites in such a short space of time, we must take action this Christmas before it spirals out of control and we have a repeat of these figures. But, how can we do this?
Here at The Printed Bag Shop, our commitment to the environment means that we strive to do everything we can to help bring you reusable, recyclable and fully-biodegradable bags for your businesses. Here’s how our selection of reusable printed bags can help your company play its part for the planet over the festive period and into the New Year.
Swap Out Virgin Polythene For Recycled Polythene
We have swapped our virgin polythene for either high or low density polythene that has been recycled or is fully biodegradable. These are ideal if you’re a supermarket or a small business that tends to use a lot of plastic bags and you are looking for a greener way to use them.
By opting for these bags, you’ll be doing your bit for the planet and be able to rest assured knowing that the bags protecting your consumers’ groceries are being recycled for a variety of uses afterwards, creating pipes, plastic lumber, crates, containers and much more when they no longer have use for them. This means that the bags can serve another purpose and not just be used for Christmas.
Introduce Our Printed Flexi Loop Carrier Bags Into Your Stores
So, what else can be done to cut down on waste?
For your business, opt for printed flexi-loop carrier bags – the ultimate choice in eco-friendly, greener bags! In fact, invest in some ‘Bags For Life’ from us for your customers, so that they can reuse them for weekly shops and for everyday life.
This Christmas, choose from our wide range of materials and give a bag that can just keep giving! Decide between high or low density polythene and select your desired thickness for your bag.
These printed bags can take on a lot, as they’re strong, durable and tough, so you can guarantee that your bag will be a long term investment that will be able to stand the test of time.
Additionally, by providing your customers with bags covered in your brand, your bags can promote and advertise your business wherever the owner takes it. So, you can save the planet and expand your small business simultaneously with a ‘Bag For Life’ – what a bonus!
Get Your Customers Reusing Our Rustic Jute Bags
Fast becoming increasingly popular due to their rustic look and strong, natural material, jute bags are a winner for everyone. Why? Well, they can be used for a variety of purposes after being purchased. As we’re on the subject of supermarkets, they can be used to place groceries in, again and again, shop after shop.
What’s more, they’re not only good for holding your bags of Brussel sprouts from your Christmas food shop, but they are also excellent for students to carry heavy books and folders in, as they’re strong enough to take the weight.
Additionally, they’re fantastic for giving away at conferences, events, in farm shops and natural food stores, making these bags extremely versatile. These multi-purpose bags can guarantee a longer life span and become bags for life this Christmas.
