Move away from plastic and make providing eco bags your New Year’s resolution

12th December, 2019

Eco bags made from paper, cotton, jute, and other materials are slowly making their way back in to stores as a replacement for plastic.

As we move closer to 2020, why not help your business and your customers to make positive and more eco-friendly choices by offering your customers eco bags instead of plastic bags?

Here at Cotton Bag Co, we have a range of different bags made from fabrics that are more durable than plastic and are an eco-friendlier option. Read on to find out about the bags we offer.


Cotton is the perfect option if you want your bag to be a bit more lightweight and easier to pack away. Our bespoke design service means we can create cotton bags that match your brand and your needs.

Both our cotton and jute bags are biodegradable and made from naturally grown, ethically sourced cotton fibres. We offer GOTS certified bags for those wanting bags that are organic and meet the highest standards.


Jute is the perfect fabric choice if you are looking for strong and hardwearing bags. They can be made to be even more durable by adding sturdy handles and lamination to the inside to make them waterproof.

These bags can be printed on to, and have a fantastic natural look to them.


Canvas offers similar benefits to cotton in the sense that it is easy to print on and lightweight to carry. Canvas bags are more durable and tougher than cotton, and so they may be a good in-between choice.
