Celebrating Earth Day: Monday, April 22, 2019
Earth Day is the world’s largest environmental movement and is held annually on April 22. This event is to demonstrate and promote environmental awareness and to further protect and conserve our planet. Today, Earth Day 2019 is celebrated in more than 193 countries, and growing each year.
You too can do your part in the preservation and protection of our planet. With the use of reusable shopping bags, recycled paper shopping bags, as well as biodegradable shopping bags, you can reduce your carbon footprint. By creating multiple use bags, your customers will use them for a longer period of time. Many natural and synthetic materials like pp non-woven, cotton canvas, muslin, and jute can be reused to create fashionable and functional shopping bags your customers will love to reuse.
Another option outside of reusable materials, natural and synthetic, is to incorporate recycled papers containing a certain percentage of post-consumer waste. Constantly recycling and reusing these materials will limit the amount of paper waste that is discarded into the environment. In most cities, packaging that is created from post-consumer waste also abides by bag bans and regulations enforced by those municipalities. This ensures paper materials for your shopping bags are responsibly sourced and created with the correct amount of recycled materials.
Keeping your eco-friendly packaging on trend is as easy as choosing the materials to create your shopping bags or pouches. Featuring this season’s newest trends from tie dyed prints to bold polka dots, and bright white will create a fashionable design on your Earth Day inspired packaging. Adding the finishing touches to your eco-friendly bags and pouches is as simple as adding decorative handles or subtle embellishments like braided jute, cotton twill, or woven handles. Incorporating drawstring closures, embroidered designs, zippers, grommets or spot uv can also take your packaging pieces to the next level.
Earth day does not have to be celebrated only on April 22 of each year; with eco-friendly and reusable packaging, Earth Day can be celebrated year-round.
