It’s really no surprise that cotton bags are increasingly becoming far more popular and common than disposable plastic bags. Whilst the latter have been extraordinarily popular in recent decades, during which time they became by far the most common way to transport groceries and other purchased goods, they’re simply no longer compatible with our modern understanding of just how damaging our lives can be for the environment.
We all know that disposable plastic bags all too often end up polluting the world’s oceans and causing great damage to the precious ecosystems which they contain. And because they can take between 200 and 1000 years to decompose, it’s absolutely essential that each of us takes action to minimise and ultimately eliminate our use of plastic bags if we’re to avoid causing even further long-term damage to the environment upon which we all depend.
But whilst investing in cotton shopping bags is certainly a decision which is hugely beneficial to the environment, the environmental benefits are far from being the only reasons to do so.
In fact, there are a whole range of different ways in which cotton grocery bags are significantly superior to their plastic counterparts – and, when you invest in cotton bags of superior quality, such as those available here at Seed & Sprout – you could easily find yourself forgetting the initial environmental motive altogether.
Firstly, the cotton tote bags we sell are all made with the finest, organic cotton, meaning they’re beautiful to look at and soft to touch. With a bag made from cotton, you’ll immediately look infinitely more stylish and sophisticated than you would carrying a heavily branded, thin, disposable plastic bag.
Plus, cotton grocery bags are much more practical than plastic bags: they have a far greater storage capacity, they’re easier and more comfortable to carry, they contain handy compartments for quick and convenient storage of bottles and other cumbersome purchases, and they’re much stronger – meaning you’ll never again have to worry about watching the contents of your bag be strewn across the car park because the bottom has split due to the weight of your shopping.
