Sustainable bags

On a daily basis you do not think about all of the diffrent kind of bags you use in your life. A handbag is almost essential for women but also men are more likely these days to wear some kind of bag. Children need bags or backpacks for school. What about using a plastic bag for shopping and groceries or having a big backpack when you go on holidays.

All of these bags are made from different kind of materials like polyester, cotton, leather or plastic. The last one is mostly used for plastic bags. You probably know that plastic is not very good for the environment. It pollutes and is very hard to get rid of. Maybe you have even heard of the plastic sea at Indonesia where plastic is polluting the beautiful sea. A good way to help the environment is to use less plastic bags. Buy one big shopping bag made of natural elements like a tote bag made out of cotton or a bamboo bag. These bags can hold a lot of heavy stuff and if you take one everytime you go shopping you do not have to spend money on buying a plastic bag each time at the checkout counter. So you will help the environment and save money at the same time!

There is also another way you can help the environment. If you use handbags, backpacks or laptopbags do some research on bag companies that use recycled material for their bags. Because plastic becomes quite a big problem there are companies who use old plastic to fabric new bags! It is a great way to help the environment and be fashionable at the same time. So if you want to feel good about the things you buy and use do some research on sustainable bags.
