Benefits of tote bags

Tote bags are extremely useful and they are growing in popularity for a multitude of reasons.


  1. Eco-Friendly Alternative to Plastic Bags

We’ve said it before and we will say it again, plastic bags should be stopped. Plastic bags can take up to 1000 years to decompose. Plastic bags are used and discarded in high volumes, whereas cotton and canvas bags last much longer and replace the need for plastic bags.

Eco-friendly options such as canvas tote bags and cotton tote bags are a great alternative to plastic. They’re also much better than plastic bags in many other ways, so you’d be better off making the switch.

  1. Durable

Tote bags are strong and durable. They can often last you over a year if you wash them and take care of them.

People use and discard an average of 700 plastic bags per person per year and only recycle 1% of these. Cotton bags are discarded less due to their durable qualities and replace the need for plastic bags altogether. This means that a switch to eco-friendly tote bags can help reduce the amount of plastic waste dramatically and can reduce your contribution by 100’s of bags a year.

  1. Save You Money

If the average person uses 700 bags per year, the cost of buying plastic bag adds up. If you buy eco-friendly options such as canvas tote bags and cotton bags, you can limit these costs and save yourself a lot of money over time.
