Varieties of Reusable Bags

A lot of celebrities and top models nowadays are using reusable bags to show their care and participation to make the environment clean and green. Maybe this is also the right time to do your part. These reusable bags are now flooding the industry as many manufacturing companies are starting to make their own version of reusable bags.

Today, there is a wide array of choices when it comes to selecting reusable bags unlike before where there were only few. These reusable bags include canvas bags, jute bags, cotton bags and cloth bags. This article will talk about the pros and cons of reusable bags to give you different perspective and ideas. Granted that all of the bags are environment friendly, here are different kinds of reusable bags:

• Jute bags – These bags were originated in one of the largest manufacturing companies of cotton and jute bags in India. Their products are shipped anywhere around the world or wherever you choose to send it to. This manufacturing company usually deals with other firms like Mc Donald’s. This is to allow their buyers to add their logos at the front of their bag. One of these bags has been given to Prince Philip, but no one knows if he reuses the bag again. This reusable bag from India is a great idea to offer jobs to the people of India plus it can also serve as a good effect to the environment as well. The only drawback of these reusable bags from India is the shipping. Tons and tons of these bags are being transported around the world and this uses a lot of fuel. Ships can cause pollution to the environment.

• Tote bags – The tote bag is made from 100% cotton. Of course, the shipping of these bags also causes pollution to increase, but if you are looking for high quality reusable bag, this is the one to pick up. The tote bag comes from UK and the price is almost the same as other reusable bags that are available in the market. However, if you choose to purchase a tote bag online, the shipment may increase the cost. This can make this tote bag accessible but a little bit expensive compared to other kinds of reusable bags.

• Canvas and cotton bags – This type of bags are the most common reusable bags that you can find anywhere. These bags are both durable and can last longer than other types of reusable bags. But, there are limited styles and designs that you can choose from. If you are fond of using simple things, this bag is just perfect for an average Joe. This is usually not a bag with funny statements, it is just a simple bag made of cotton cloth.

All of these reusable bags have their own pros and cons. It depends upon the buyer what kind of reusable bag can satisfy their needs and wants.
