Recently, tote bags have been sold as a more eco-friendly replacement for disposable plastic bags given they can be reused multiples times. They have also been given away as promotional items. A study by the UK Environment Agency found that cotton canvas bags have to be reused at least 327 times before they can match the carbon expenditure of a single disposable plastic bag. Meanwhile, tote bags made from recycled polypropylene plastic require 26 reuses to match. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/3d/ab/4f/3dab4f948c0c84a2423cce3a6666f413.jpg

I purchased a soft thermal bag..after little / non heavy use several months later the liner ripped away from the stitching along the zipper. The company claimed to not be able to find my sale from the rep I purchased it from, and said they would not replace it, but offered me a coupon with a % off to purchase something else. REALLY? Why would I want to purchase another over priced cheap product? Even worse...the rep I did purchase it from, is willing to pay to have it resewn, and its not even her responsibility to fix this companies product! I was also told that if you purchase their products as a cash & carry item from a rep, they wont warranty that either! NOW...this company knows most of their reps, purchase products to sell at Vendor events. What a cheap way to get out of replacing cheaply made products..let a bunch of reps make you $$$ by selling your products, treat them bad, treat the people purchasing your products even worse. How long before you close your doors? SOON I hope, so you will quit cheating the consumer. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/00/d2/08/00d20800de6cdc32f650759333bf5fa0.jpg

A 2014 study of U.S. consumers found that the 28% of respondents who own of reusable bags forgot them on approximately 40% of their grocery trips and used them only about 15 times each before being discarded. About half of this group typically chose to use plastic bags over reusable ones, despite owning reusable bags and recognizing their benefits. An increasing number of jurisdictions have mandated the phase-out of lightweight plastic bags to reduce land and ocean pollution. In order to provide an incentive for consumers to remember reusable bags more often these laws establish a minimum price for bags at checkout and require either paper, reusable fabric tote bags, or thick reusable plastic bags. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/6f/80/18/6f801801e945d56de2b2876e72c74771.jpg
