Custom Shopping Bags - Encouraging the Green Movement

By Joy Shiela Subscribe to RSS | January 21st 2012 | Views:

Ecology is making a stand, even in the shopping mall these days. It has become common for malls and retailers to encourage the Green in all of us with using custom shopping bags. In time, the trend would be towards shoppers bringing their own customized bags whenever they go out shopping.

There are many companies that may create and style the custom shopping bags, however, there are only some manufacturers that make use of recyclable but highly durable materials. The customized bags that are made from recyclable materials are offered by the shopping malls either for free or at an affordable price for the use of the consumers while they do their shopping. The marketing strategy that they use to offer encouragement are the discounts on the purchases. There are instances when consumers are given discount cards for the initial purchase of the shopping bags. Another promotional strategy is to give a free shopping bag as a giveaway when the purchases reach a particular amount.

The bags are usually made from recyclable plastic materials. The ordinary plastic bags that we used to throw are recycled through a processing method to make it more durable and sturdy. These recycled materials could be made into sheets of fabric-like materials which will then be custom made into the specific design of choice. These materials become durable with the processing that they might be washed and dried without having to worry about their ability to hold heavy items. Those who do decide to buy and use the bags even make it out to be a fashion statement.

The eco-friendly customized bags are the answer of most companies to the threat of global warming to our present environment. There are countries and states that promote the use of shopping bags as a requirement and never optional based on the wishes of the consumers. In their efforts to promote the eco-friendly environment, some malls can be penalized if they don't provide the bags and take part in the efforts towards the green movement.

With the high demand for recyclable custom shopping bags, there are now increasingly more companies manufacturing and designing these. Going online, it is easy to spot the manufacturers and designers and any company or private individual can place an order. If the order comes from a company, logos may be included at extra cost. With online ordering, everything can be done with convenience including the online payment and shipping to any part of the world. These are very economical and cost effective in the long run, for both the retailer company and their paying customers.
