Reusable Bags: What's the big fuss?
There's an undeniable "go green" trend happening right now - from electric cars to new lightbulbs, everywhere you look there's a new way to help the environment. Supermarkets and stores across the country have hopped on the bandwagon and have started offering reusable bags instead of the one-use paper or plastic bags. Local governments took notice of the effects of plastic bags on the environment and there has been a steady increase in new laws and taxes on those one-use bags. Skeptics say that this is "just another trend." Environmentalists say we are not doing enough. The important factor for consumers to consider when making the change to go green is to make sure they are making a change for the better.
Mixed Bag Designs offers colorful reusable bags for every type of errand - from stocking up at the supermarket to taking out the recycling or compost. The best part? These lead-free, BPA-free reusable bags are made from recycled woven polypropylene - the same plastic used in yogurt containers - and can be recycled anywhere that accepts #5 plastics (the same place you recycle your yogurt cups or plastic food tubs), including Whole Foods locations across the country. The reusable shopping bags are also sturdy and durable, with some holding 50 lbs. easily and equipped with double shoulder straps for easy carrying.
