Putting in a budget for your printed bags is something to consider when putting together a monthly business plan. Not only will you be able to market your brand on printed plastic bags, but you can also help to reduce the environmental effects of traditional plastic bags in the process. In this article, we are going to look at how a printed plastic bag can encourage those to reuse.
One of the ways that printed plastic bags can help encourage those that have them to re-use them is the design. If the design is clearly branded and has bright colours, this will help to encourage them to reuse it. In addition to this, adding a catchy slogan or even a relatable photograph can keep people reaching for the bag when they go shopping or even taking their lunch to and from work. A printed carrier bag can also be stored with ease, allowing them to be thrown in the back of a car or in a handbag for convenient use.
Another way that a printed bag can encourage people to reuse is through the practicality that it provides. Not only can it be stored in the back of a car or in a handbag, but it can also be used when swimming, or even storing items in the shoe cupboard at home rather than sitting in a landfill site. This is ideal for the environment as it is then for filling its intended purpose rather than being thrown away. Due to the strength of the bag, they can be used for a number of different reasons.
With a printed bag for life lasting approximately the length of 700 disposable plastic bags making this the more environmentally friendly option for a business. By only offering this style of a plastic bag, you are giving your customers a bag that is far stronger than the traditional plastic bag all whilst encouraging them to reuse. If the bag is of high quality, this will allow your customers to store the bag and use it later. Bags that are significantly stronger are often used for the weekly food shop as they can hold multiple items without breaking.
Another reason why this is better for the environment is due to the many environmental impacts. With nearly 100 million marine animals dying from the consumption of plastic bags every year, a printed bag can help to cut down the amount that ends up in our oceans and in landfill sites. In addition to this, plastic bags are not biodegradable, this, therefore, means that they are polluting the earth as well as the oceans at an alarming rate. Though there is a very minimal amount that can be done to remove these bags, reducing the use now will help to clean up the earth and reduce the plastic from the sea.
With this in mind, producing printed bags and encouraging customers to use them can be the perfect way to prevent the overuse of plastic and the effects this is having on the environment. Will you begin to implement them in your business strategy?
