There has been an ongoing debate about whether paper bags help the environment or not, but we will focus on why they can help you look after the pennies so the pounds look after themselves.
Plastic bags, used in majority of supermarkets, could be given a charge to be used when we do our food shopping, so this could open a huge market for the paper bag. Many clothes retailers have already twigged onto this idea, offering their clothing to be taken away in personalized paper bags.
In fact, a number of businesses use paper bags when at exhibitions or giving out goody bags, not only because they can handle a number of little gifts inside but they also represent the brand clearly on the front. Paper carrier bags bags are a relatively cheap marketing tool for businesses and can be used again and again, helping brand management and awareness.
Surprisingly Durable Bags
It is not only businesses that can benefit though, as paper bags are surprisingly durable they can be used again and again, so paying to use a plastic bag is not something you will have to encounter every time you need a pint of milk from the local shop. The same applies to a bag for life too – they can cost up to £1 and many people forget to bring them with them everywhere they go.
So, when we say paper bags can save you money, we may not mean hundreds of pounds, unless of course you have a business and need to do some subtle advertising, instead we mean we can help to save you money every time you make a new purchase.
That’s not the only thing though, you can help the environment by reducing the amount of plastic bags we consume on a yearly basis too. This will contribute to the economy too which of course in turn will benefit you in the long run, if not immediately.
Paper bags will not save you thousands but it will help you save money in the long term and will help the environment too, which is always a bonus.
