You're now committed to using reusable shopping bags. How can you choose the right reusable shopping bags for your marketing or advertising promotion? It all depends on 1) material preference, 2) price, and 3) handles and other features.
Preference for Material:
The majority of inexpensive bags that you will see in retail stores today are made from nonwoven polypropylene. This is a type of plastic that looks and feels like cloth. Nonwoven polypropylene can be made from virgin materials or from recycled materials from post-consumer and industrial sources. You can shop for polypropylene reusable bags on CoPack Inc.
Would you like to wash your bags in the washer to keep them clean and fresh? Natural-fiber cotton is the best choice. Although organic cotton is more expensive, they are better for the environment because no pesticides are used in its production.
Laminated shopping bags
If spraying your bags is your thing, you might prefer a laminated reusable bag. Laminate bags can be made from laminated nonwoven or laminated woven polyester, as well as laminated recycled PET.
Polyester or nylon
Nylon and polyester reusable bags are extremely popular due to their thinness, durability, and compact size. Nylon and polyester bags are more expensive than other options, but they have a higher perceived worth.
