Recently, tote bags have been sold as a more eco-friendly replacement for disposable plastic bags given they can be reused multiples times. They have also been given away as promotional items. A study by the UK Environment Agency found that cotton canvas bags have to be reused at least 327 times before they can match the carbon expenditure of a single disposable plastic bag. Meanwhile, tote bags made from recycled polypropylene plastic require 26 reuses to match. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b5/ee/64/b5ee64901055392de906e79a586a1007--younique.jpg
The Gift Catalog began in 1996 with a handful of humanitarian gifts. Today, the catalog gives shoppers more than 250 tangible ways to improve the lives of children and their communities. Gifts range in price from $16 to $50,000. Last year, more than 146,000 people donated more than 310,000 items from the Gift Catalog that helped families in need around the world.
My FAVORITE product from Thirty-One Gifts is the Fashion Games purse in Cognac Woods Pebble. I have used this purse exclusively for over a year and a half. It has doubled as my briefcase and carried my laptop on several flights to Atlanta and California and I use it around town as my everyday purse. I love the slouchy style, the roomy interior and the small inside pockets where I can put my phone or keys and not lose them. After near daily use, this product is showing very little wear. Originally this item cost $98 but it’s now available as an online extra for $58 plus tax and shipping. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/ac/a4/6e/aca46e1ab69fa4b75fdaf1da621d8448---ideas-sharpies.jpg

A 2014 study of U.S. consumers found that the 28% of respondents who own of reusable bags forgot them on approximately 40% of their grocery trips and used them only about 15 times each before being discarded. About half of this group typically chose to use plastic bags over reusable ones, despite owning reusable bags and recognizing their benefits. An increasing number of jurisdictions have mandated the phase-out of lightweight plastic bags to reduce land and ocean pollution. In order to provide an incentive for consumers to remember reusable bags more often these laws establish a minimum price for bags at checkout and require either paper, reusable fabric tote bags, or thick reusable plastic bags. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/6f/80/18/6f801801e945d56de2b2876e72c74771.jpg
