Advantages of Using Reusable Bags

Are you hesitating to transition to reusable bags in your business? This step offers numerous advantages, both for your business and for your customers and the environment!

Why use reusable bags?

1.It’s an Eco-Friendly Solution

Did you know that it takes just one second to produce a plastic bag, its average usage time is about 20 minutes, but its decomposition time is 400 years?!

The adoption of reusable bags is an environmentally friendly solution for several reasons. It allows you to:

  • Reduce your trash weight by 2 kg per person per year.
  • Save natural resources.
  • Lower your carbon footprint.
  • Minimize the waste produced, collected, and treated.
  • Contribute to ocean preservation and prevent harm to marine animals.

 

2.Boosts your brand visibility

Adding a logo to your reusable bags creates an additional communication tool to increase the visibility of your brand.

This promotional tool has a long-term effect, directly and subconsciously impacting everyone who sees the bag carried by your customers during their shopping or in the street.

3.Great value for money

Adopting reusable bags in your business will lead to long-term savings.

Plastic bags are sold at a low price, often 5 cents or 10 cents, but they have a very short lifespan (usually single-use in most cases) and require a new bag in a short time, leading to plastic overconsumption.

As for reusable bags, they are generally sold at a slightly higher price, but they have a longer lifespan: you only need to replace them when they are worn out, about every 4 or 5 years after purchase and depending on usage.

Businesses, therefore, have a significantly reduced turnover of bag purchases when their customers have access to reusable bags rather than plastic bags. Reusable bags are also of better quality and can carry heavier loads over longer distances.
