Eco friendly bags: there’s something for everyone

Sometimes it can feel impossible to avoid the use of plastic bags – what with trips to the supermarket, shopping centres, and day-to-day activities necessitating the use of them.

But what if you didn't have to use them? What you might not know is that there is a range of different bags out there that can eliminate your need for plastic ones.

You may have seen reusable shopping bags in the supermarket – but this isn't the only variety available.

Whatever your needs, there's a bag out there that can replace the plastic in your life and have a positive effect on the environment.

In the supermarket

Perhaps you're strolling the fruit section of the supermarket, feeling good about yourself because you're using an eco friendly bag.

That is until you need to reach for a plastic bag to put your fruits and veggies in!

Well, reusable produce bags do indeed exist, so you don't need to feel guilty about using plastic ever again.

This type of bag is extremely light so won't show up on the weighing counter, and they're robust and versatile.

At the shopping centre

If you're out clothes shopping, you can end up accumulating a number of different plastic bags.

To avoid this problem, take a multi-purpose reusable shopping bag with you, and ask the shop assistant at each store if you can put your purchases in that instead.

This makes things a lot easier to carry and you'll be greatly reducing your output of plastic waste.

The best of the rest

There are many eco friendly bags for general use – including backpacks that can be used as school bags for your children.

You can find varieties which are made from recycled and sustainable materials so that you can feel good about making positive environmental choices and helping out the planet.
