Eco friendly shopping bags are an absolute must for everyone! This is one of those small effort - high impact things you can easily do to help the environment. The payoff to the health of our world is huge if we all make this easy lifestyle change.
The regular bags the stores give out look harmless enough. But the truth is that they are one of the biggest polluters on the planet. The great thing is that there are fashionable alternatives available - colourful, stylish & beautiful and they are often made from recycled fabrics or organic fabrics that have been produced using environmentally friendly methods.
Here are some cool examples to give you an idea of the possibilities- you can make them yourself, buy them in shops, or for even bigger selection buy ecofriendly shopping bags online.
It feels so good to be able to look great, be eco-conscious and make a big difference to the earth by starting to use eco friendly shopping bags now.
Your options are no longer limited to the plain branded versions you can buy while in your local grocery store (although these are great and I use these too). But for going out to the mall or to your local boutique you can carry a reuseable shopping bag with you that looks great too.
They are now available in many types of fabric and design. From modern, classical, upscale to organic bags with a message - there really is no limit to what you can find.
If you are at all crafty you can probably create one of your own, or even make them to sell to others as a business.
For the rest of us less talented folks, most towns or cities have local artisans who make unique trendy eco bags so that you can find your own signature fashion accessory to bring shopping with you.
An easy way to find the largest selection is to shop online. I was surprised to find a huge selection on large shopping sites such as Amazon.
It is also cool that many of the bags for sale there are from small artistic designers who are selling their own handmade goods. I find this to be doubly fufilling - I can be kind to the environment and also support new artists and designers.
Or if you want to look for yourself , you can search all of Amazon's site by entering a keyword of your choice such as "eco friendly shopping bags" .
I found lots of really nice eco bags online. As you can see there is basically something for everyone.
Switch to eco friendly shopping bags and you too can have a positive impact on the environment!
