What Make Totes The Hottest Names In Bags? Here Are Some Real Sound Reasons
Stylish, long lasting and handy, tote bags have always been popular choices among shoppers and marketers alike. As more states, including San Francisco, Los Angles and most recently Chicago are bringing in the plastic ban laws, more and more retailers will be switching to reusable totes in the day ahead.
Why plastic bags are damaging
At present, over 132 cities and counties in the country have implemented a plastic ban to reduce landfills and the risks of global warming. On a rough estimate over 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are used around the world every year, of which 380 billion are in the United States, which works out into 38 – 76 percent of all plastic bags used each year!
The discarded plastic will not just choke the earth but also pose a danger to both land and aquatic animals. Studies have shown that a single plastic bag can take up to 500 years to biodegrade. So, the threat posed by the massive heaps of plastic bags to the environment is beyond imagination. What makes the plastic menace grave is the fact that 90 percent of them are not recycled.
Go – green concept gaining popularity
Most major stores are offering free reusable bags to customers who may not have brought their own tote bags. Marketers can be part of this social cause to make the world a better place to live by handing out these logo imprinted totes that can be reused for a very long time. Eco friendly tote bags have always been one of the trending promotional gifts of the year. Imprint your logo and message and hand these out to shoppers, at tradeshows or events to promote not just your message but also the go green theme.
Tote bags have become popular corporate gifts among marketers in the West where the plastic ban is in existence. Totes not just have a higher load bearing capacity than plastic bags but also look good and can be used for daily errands, weekend trips, gym, library or in fact anywhere in style. Everyone loves the casual vibe that totes offer. Available in a palette of brilliant colors, totes will subtly complement the changing color theme of the fall season.
So, if you want to help the environment, you can switch to these reusable tote bags. The best thing is that these can be used for awareness campaigns on recycling plastic bags and reducing waste. Totes can make perfect back to school kits, festive gift bags, employee welcome kits and much more. No matter how you wish to use these versatile bags, the bottom-line is that these will be loved by one and all!
