We live in an amazing time. At no point in history have we ever had such an abundance at our fingertips. Now, however, we’re beginning to see the real cost of that convenience. More and more people realise that caring for the Earth is essential to our future, and things have to change.
If you have been wondering how you can help, we’re here to tell you that it’s easier than you think. In fact, starting your eco journey can be as simple as switching to reusable grocery bags.
Little Steps Create Big Changes for the Environment
At Seed & Sprout, we believe that a series of little steps lead the way to big change. That’s why everything we make provides a simple replacement for household items that are known to hurt the environment.
Reusable bags are an excellent first step to take on your eco journey because it is an easy switch that has a huge effect. Estimates show that nearly 4 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide each year, and only about 1% of those make it to a recycling bin.
Figures like this actually give us hope. That’s one huge problem we can solve just by starting a trend. If we can get enough people to make one easy switch, that adds up to a lot less plastic making its way to the ocean.
Switching from Plastic Bags is Simple with Seed & Sprout
Making the switch from plastic to reusable is easy. The most important thing to think about is how much you buy at once. We’re big supporters of buying in bulk, but most people shop weekly. Either way, that’s still a lot of groceries to haul.
Our Farmer’s Market Shopping Set comes with 14 bags in various sizes and styles, making it easy for you to carry home the weekly shopping. All bags are made from 100% organic cotton and are completely safe for carrying food. This set includes:
2 large canvas totes for general grocery items
2 string and canvas produce totes
10 mesh produce bags in various sizes
Each of our bags would retail individually for $120 or more. However, when we sell them as a set we are able to offer them to you for less than the price of a single bag. By making it easy and affordable to buy all the reusable shopping bags you need in one order, we are paving the way for those little steps that lead to big change!
Take a Little Step Down the Path to a Better Earth
Sustainable living seems challenging, but it’s easy if you make a few simple changes. Your first step can be anything. We recommend switching to sustainable grocery bags because we know it’s an easy transition for many. It’s also one that has a big effect. However you start, make a commitment to taking that first step. Who knows, maybe your effort will inspire others to follow!
