5 Reasons We Said “No More” to Plastic Bags
Here at Island Slumber, we’ve been invested in the commitment to help take care of our planet for a long time through using sustainable, eco-friendly products. That made it an easy decision for us to say,
“No More Plastic Bags!”
While it’s more or less a no-brainer, we wanted to share our thoughts with you anyway. Here are 5 really solid reasons we made the switch.
- Plastic bags are not biodegradable and can last over a 1000 years!
They pollute the environment and are a serious danger to wildlife since many animals swallow or choke on plastic.
Most plastic bags are made of polyethylene, which is a substance that is made from crude oil refining and natural gas processing. Oil and natural gas are non-renewable, fossil fuel-based resources, meaning that when they are extracted and produced, they emit greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.
2. We believe in using eco-friendly products that decompose.
Being eco-friendly has always been part of our vision and using cloth bags instead of plastic is a lasting way to make that statement. Our cloth bags are washable and can be reused many times over.
3. Reusable shopping bags are a smart alternative to plastic.
Reusable shopping bags are a great alternative for customers and for the environment. Most of the time they are more durable than plastic or paper bags and they can be reused as many times as needed over the course of many years.
4. Island Slumber chose eco-friendly, reusable cloth bags and our customers love them.
We’re so fortunate to have so many smart customers who appreciate the value of cloth bags. That’s one of the FAQs that we are able to proudly say, “Yes, we use cloth not plastic shopping bags!”
- Reliable, durable cloth bags are a great, purposeful way to market a brand.
