How do I choose a reusable shopping bag?
So you’re going to commit to using reusable shopping bags. Good for you! Make sure you choose a reusable shopping bag that best suits your individual needs. The more you like your bags, the more you’ll remember to use them!
But how do you choose a reusable shopping bag that’s right for you? It all depends on 1) material preference, 2) price, 3) handles and other features, and 4) how many bags are needed.
1. Material Preference: There are many material options for reusable bags—and new materials are being developed. Reusable bags are most commonly made from non woven polypropylene, cotton, laminated materials, polyester or (ripstop) nylon, recycled PET, or natural (jute/bamboo/hemp)
2. Non woven Poly: The majority of the inexpensive bags you see at retail stores today are made of non woven polypropylene, which is a form of plastic made to look and feel like cloth. This material option is extremely popular because it is, by far, the most economical—making it easier to kick the single-use bag habit. These bags can be strong and mighty, and lay flat for storage (some non woven bags fold into little pouches as well). They can be vibrant and colorful and are often available with four-color process printing. They do require hand washing, either in a sink with soapy water, or by spraying them down with a water/bleach mixture or disinfectant spray cleaner. Non woven polypropylene is #5 recyclable at the end of its life, but take care to remove any grommets, snaps etc. before recycling. Some non woven polypropylene is made from virgin materials and some is made from a mix of new materials and post consumer/industrial recycled materials (check with your bag supplier to determine if your bags are made from recycled materials). You can look through our website and it have many kinds of non woven bag.
