Why we need to focus on environmentally friendly bags

As you probably already know, the government are making an effort to reduce the use of plastic carrier bags by ensuring that all big businesses (with over 250 employees) have to charge 5p for all single-use plastic bags. Although this is likely to lead to some increase in the number of reusable bags being purchased, it is not a solid enough solution to actually achieve significant measurable results – which is why we need to do more.

Rather than just discouraging people from using plastic bags, we need to really focus on which bags have the lowest carbon footprint. The guide below should give you a good idea of how environmentally friendly each material is.

How many times should our bags be reused?

We can figure out roughly how environmentally friendly a bag is by how many times it needs to be used to be as eco-friendly as the widely used vest carrier bag.

  • Paper bags – These bags would need to be reused at least 4 times.
  • LDPE (Low-density polyethylene) Bag for Life – These bags would need to be reused at least 5 times.
  • Non-Woven PP Bags – These bags would need to be reused at least 14 times.
  • Cotton/ Jute Bags – These bags would need to be reused at least 173 times.

Our Sugar Cane Carrier Bags

We supply eco friendly bags made from refined sugar cane, which is a great alternative to other materials and is much more environmentally friendly. In fact, these bags are carbon neutral and 100{174b315e54b4655dbab378aa97637ad326d062f4b386d62b51fc6c5cfeace70b} recyclable – making them the perfect solution for reducing carbon footprint.

The process of manufacturing these bags starts with refining sugar cane and using the waste products to make Ethanol. This is then transformed into polymer which is used to make the bags.

As you can imagine, the complex process of creating these bags makes them more expensive than traditional plastic bags – but the quality is undeniable.
