Bag bans are no longer a bizarre phenomenon, as places from Austin to San Francisco have successfully adopted measures that change the way people carry groceries and supplies home. Kermit, Texas, is the most recent place to adopt a ban, as the city council decided in late July that enough was enough. Residents couldn’t stand the unsightly pollution, and storeowners agree it’s for the best. Is it that easy to make eco-friendly reusable shopping bags the way of a community? In Kermit, people had enough of bags blowing down the street, getting caught in trees, and polluting everything in sight. Wholesale reusable shopping bags are the recommended alternative, otherwise shoppers will have to pay for a paper bag made of recycled material. There simply wasn’t anyone willing to go the distance for plastic bags. They last too long and have too many chemicals in their makeup. Business owners who run small stores – making less than $1 million per year – will not be affected. The large stores that are responsible for so much of the waste are going to have to change in short order. Companies will have to start selling personalized shopping bags to customers, and they are sure to benefit from seeing their logo coming in and out of stores and all over town when their customers travel around town. There is something of a chain reaction happening all across the United States. Small communities are making eco-friendly reusable shopping bags the standard, and big cities like New York are about to follow suit. Places like Kermit and Austin are setting the tone in Texas, and there is little reason to oppose these moves. After all, who can argue for polluting bags that never biodegrade? It’s a tough line to push. Better to get personalized shopping bags for your company and promote your business while being on the right side of history.
