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
