Choice Magazine Says...

Choice Magazine (the consumer watch-dog in Australia) has asked the question : Are polypropylene bags really greener?

We all know these "Green Bags" & we've all got a number of them that we use for shopping, gym gear, outings etc... but the question remains... are they greener?

In their article, Choice Magazine mention a number of things & quote some great statistics for using Reusable Bags & their conclusions are pretty simple :

When selecting a durable green bag :
-- the thicker the material, the better.
-- seams should be firmly sewn, with no loose threads.
-- a piping, or small plastic board at the bottom of the bag acts as a weight distributor and will help the bag last longer.

At Bag People, we've been in business since 1993 & our basic philosophy is "supply quality; it's simple & it matters".

Previously is was all about quality for the customer; but now we need to add our Planet into the mix aswell.

Quick Facts about Bag People Reusable Bags :
-- 90gsm fabric as standard
-- we double stitch all our seams
-- our handles are fully stitched (see Bag People TV for more info)
-- base-boards are standard - no question!

We are Professional Bag Specialists... we know what works & what does not.

Technological advances are applied to everything & fabric technology is no different.

The success of our Recycled Fabric Options are proving that customers are seeking alternative manufacturing methods that are more environmentally conscious.

Chewing through new resources is not the only way to deliver a high-quality low-cost reusable bag to the market.
