Approximately 89 million plastic bags, sacks, and wraps are used in the U.S. each year, but only a small percentage get recycled, according to the American Chemistry Council. That means billions of plastics end up choking landfills. Enivronmentally-conscious business owner, Loraine Keip, is doing something about the world’s plastic addiction with her new site, http://www.EcoBagsAndMore.com.
The new site features affordable, attractive, eco-friendly bags. Carry a TuckerBag designer shopping bag or two with incredible prints on errands. These bags can each carry up to 35 lbs. Say no to paper and plastic bags at the grocery store, and instead opt for cloth grocery bags. Insulated reusable grocery bags can keep cold items cold and hot items hot for up to three hours.
Shoppers can even eliminate the smaller fruit and vegetable plastic bags by utilizing reusable produce bags. In addition to being eco-friendly, these produce bags can help preserve the life of produce stored in the refrigerator. Canvas lunch sacks are another popular item because they come with fabric markers for customers to decorate the bags to their liking. Whatever food stuffs or yard waste cannot be composted can be placed in a biodegradable garbage bag.
“Rather than using the plastic bags they have in the grocery stores that rip as soon as you step out into the parking lot, these bags hold a lot of weight,” said Keip. “It’s nice when your groceries aren’t splattered all over the ground!”
Put a new spin on holiday gift wrap this season by covering packages in fabric gift wrap and placing oddly shaped items in fabric gift bags. Choose from fabric patterns ranging from plain black to cherries to polka dots to flowers and beyond. Swap out paper wine bags with classier fabric wine bags. Each festive fabric wine bag is tailored to match the height of a wine bottle. All fabric items are machine washable, so gift recipients can re-use the wrapping for other presents or for storing small to medium size items.
Jute bags are another fashion-forward, eco-friendly gift that is sure to trend this holiday season. Jute fiber – also known as “the golden fiber” – is sturdy, 100 percent biodegradable, and can be turned into an assortment of stylish accessories, including tote bags, cosmetic bags, and shopping bags.
“The jute bags are fashionable and can be carried every day as a purse,” said Keip.
