New Tote Bags

Bag People have released a new range of Tote Bags in a few fabric options :

So what's a Tote Bag?

It's basically a re-modelled Shoulder Bag, which - as the name suggests - goes over your shoulder, but the main difference is design.

A Tote Bag has a gusset at the base only whereas a Shoulder Bag has a gusset on all 3 sides.

This little design adjustment creates a few benefits for a Tote Bag :
- lower cost using less fabric & easier manufacturing
- security - when used as an "every-day" bag smaller opening at the top & it hugs your body when carried

Tote Bags are one of the best methods to get your companies brand out on the street because people will choose to carry your bag.

Easy Fashion

There's a massive ground-swell running for Eco Friendly Reusable Bags.

But it's not what you think.

Reusable Bags have made it acceptable for Mens of all ages to carry a Handbag.

Not the traditional "Fashion Handbag" that matches your shoes & nail polish, but a versatile bag that can carry all those things you need - wallet, keys, phone, etc, etc, etc... you get the idea.

Bag People have a massive range of styles & fabric colours that will suit any purpose.

Reduce Waste with Quality

A great way to reduce your waste it to focus on quality from the start.

"They don't built 'em like they used to".

It's true with more suppliers reducing quality to reduce cost which increases consumption, which in turn consumes more resources & increases waste.

Sure; quality costs more to start with, but the long term price we will all pay is far greater than the penny's we spend now.

When a manufacturer produces quality, they stand-behind it.

Have you ever heard of Maytag? They make household whitegoods (washing machines, dishwashers, cookers, fridges & freezers).

They offer a 10 Year Warranty on the drum motor of their washing machines - that says it all.

Quality is major focus at Maytag. Their goods cost more than their competitors, but when you make a comparison on every feature of a Maytag product next to their rivals - there is no competition.

If you focus on quality to start with you'll be happier in the long run.

Whether it's washing machines, computers, door knobs or Reusable Bags; always take a look at the quality option before making your decision based on price alone.

Contact Bag People to see how our quality compares to other products available.

National Recycling Week

The Australian National Recycling Week start today.

No matter where you are or what you do, there is always something you use in your daily routine that can be recycled, see NRW for more details.

Bags from Bag People are a great way to reduce usage of single-use plastic bags, but we also have bags specifically for recycling.

They're made from very strong Woven Polypropylene - which itself is 100% Recyclable & our bags are rated to carry up to 10kg.

Woven Polypropylene is a great material for recycling bags because it does not absorb moisture or odour & has a wipe-clean surface.

Keep it next to your desk or in the kitchen for your recyclables.

We're doing our bit to help !

So what are you doing?
