Why are reusable grocery bags better than the paper or plastic grocery bags?

We have all heard for years now that plastic bags are not bio-degradable and stay in landfills for decades.  Or that using paper bags at the rate that we make purchases ends up devastating rain-forests, etc.   Although a lot more people are starting to use reusable grocery bags there are still a lot of us who do as we always did, and rely on the store to provide disposable bags for our purchases.  However, now many stores are either giving customers money back for each reusable bag they use during each visit, or they are charging customers extra for using the store’s disposable bags.  This is providing a more immediate incentive for customers to start changing their long time habits.  Everyday people, not just “tree huggers”,  are now more likely to have reusable bags in the trunk of their cars.  It is now mainstream and more comfortable for people to be seen bringing their own bags.  This has opened a huge market for companies to advertise on these bags that people collect and are seen in public over and over again.  They also make for great promotional gifts!  The environment is benefiting from this trend more than ever, and people can feel good about doing their small part.  Go karma!

Printable Seeded Paper

seededpaper1Did you know that more than 900 million trees are cut down for raw materials for American paper? This is a problem that America is working on, but needs everyone’s help and involvement. If your company wants to be proactive and help reduce this problem, consider incorporating eco friendly marketing materials into your advertising, such as promotional seeded paper.

Printable seeded paper is handmade with post consumer recycled paper and contains Snapdragons, Catchfiess, Sweet Alyssums, Glorious and English daisies, and Corn Poppy seeds. Some suggestions for printable seeded paper are bookmarks, mailers, postcards, business cards, and magnetic business tents. Promotional seeded paper is perfect for any eco promotion and makes a great impression on customers, while helping to save the environment in a unique way. It allows any company to stand out among others and to send out a positive message and a sense of conservation to their employees and customers.

Does it Pay for a Company to be Green?

Three companies used eco-friendly products to help promote their messages.

Does it pay for a company to be green? Absolutely. According to the inaugural BBMG Consumer Conscious Report, nearly 90% of American consumers are more likely to buy products from companies they believed employed eco-friendly practices. That’s a big number. But to get the attention of consumers who are going green, you’ve got to toot your own horn a bit.

Living Green!

Let’s go GREEN!

Living Green Market Bag Set is not only eco-friendly but also fashionable.  Recently, I was looking for a package deal of grocery bags.  I didn’t see one that caught my eye until today.  I came across the Living Green Market Bag Set and wanted to come show you all.  What a great way to not only display your logo but also help the environment by being green. The set comes with 3 grocery totes colored green, yellow and blue with leaf graphics.  Your company logo would be displayed on the cinch bag.  

In San Francisco, the ban on plastic grocery bags has already been implemented.  Why not get these totes early before it becomes a law.  Let’s protect the environment!
