Add Shopping with Reusable Eco-Friendly Shopping Bags as One of Your Goals in 2013!

January 11, 2013
When you make your list of resolutions for 2013, don’t forget to consider our planet and the growing trash problem. Every day, mountains of waste are produced while solutions to environmental issues come slowly. Instead of worrying about what lawmakers can do, it’s better to take matters into your own hands and “ask what you can do for your planet.” A great way to start is by using eco-friendly reusable shopping bags. The reusable tote bags you’ve seen popping up all across the country are one of the minor victories of the environmental conservation effort (see When a bag is constantly reused to go shopping, waste is limited to the actual products inside. While the underlying problem involves the packaging of every grocery item, removing the common denominator – the traditional plastic grocery bag – is a major step forward. Holden Bags offers this solution. Customized reusable grocery bags work for all parties. For the consumer, they provide an attractive, durable method of transporting goods of any size. For the shop owner, they act as a substitute for plastic bags. You don’t have to purchase bags that are thrown away after one use, plus you get exposure for your business when you put your logo on the bag. Looking at it from an economics angle, it makes more sense. Municipalities benefit when everyone brings eco-friendly reusable shopping bags to the store as well. There is less trash to haul and less of a threat to wildlife and greenery when plastic bag circulation is minimal. Making the resolution to quit using disposable bags is not difficult. Simply refuse to contribute to landfill waste and accept responsibility on a daily basis. Keep your reusable bags in the trunk of your car. When you bring customized reusable grocery bags to the store, you’ll feel good about doing your part, and you should. It’s going to take a real commitment on the part of everyone to turn the tide in favor of our planet. At least we can start with those trips to the store.
