Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Holden Bags has announced that it will be supporting an ordinance, deemed the Carryout Bag Ordinance, approved by the Austin City Council in Austin, Texas which places a ban on retailers who wish to provide disposable bags for single-use to customers. The ban was approved on March 1st of 2013 and was designed in order to target the use of plastic and paper bags as carryout items for merchandise in retail establishments.
LAD Solutions has partnered with Holden Bags in order to get the word out about their stance on the issue and continues to post numerous articles on its website in support of the ban. Holden Bags has opted to support this ban because of its support for environmental friendly practices as well as to support its growing brand. Holden Bags is a well-known manufacturer of reusable bags and totes which it provides to businesses in wholesale quantities around the country.
Holden Bags offers eco-friendly reusable shopping bags for sale on its website. For wholesale buyers, they even include the option to add custom artwork to the bag design. Holden Bags states that this provides an excellent option to make their bags into a promotional item while at the same time being environmentally friendly. Their aim is to make the use of reusable bags trendy in order to decrease the use of paper and plastic bags.
Holden Bags is not only in support of the ban at the municipal level but also wants to see the ban extend to the rest of the state as well as country-wide. The company's position is that the ban would be better for the environment and would cut back on waste. On their blog, they also argue that the bans of plastic in certain areas of Texas has lead to increased revenues due to the fact that retailers were required to charge for plastic bags and this money was subsequently funneled in to environmental restoration projects in the area.
The company has several posts on its blog that describe their stance on the issue and also track the issue of banning plastic bags in other locations around the country such as in nearby Santa Fe, New Mexico where a similar ban is being discussed by lawmakers.
