Eco friendly Promotional Bags shouldn't cost the earth

Eco-friendly promotional bags on your shoulder will always look good won't they, especially if it’s free? Yes, bag carriers the world over would definitely love the one who gifted it. This makes printed promotional bags an excellent idea for promotional gifts and giveaways. So why invest more in rather eco-friendly printed bags?

It is true that consumerism is increasing day by day, but one thing that is also true is the fact that consumers are getting wiser with each day. Today’s consumer won’t trust any brand that tries to lure them in through fancy advertisements. People now are more inclined towards brands that are more concerned about people rather than just selling anything and making money. Brands that follow certain standards and promote environmentally-friendly products show that they are more concerned about their customers. This invokes trust in the heart of their customers and in turn people prefer those brands more than others.

Contrary to the common perception, eco-friendly printed bags are not just limited to shopper bags anymore. There are different types of bags that can be used as eco-friendly printed bags. To start with, a very simple and low-cost option is the basic paper bag. Despite the low cost, you can find many interesting styles in paper bags as well. These paper bags are made from recycled paper and are good for both business prospects and customers. Natural fibre such as cotton and jute are both 100% sustainable and renewable. They are used to make bags of different styles and sizes. A very common one is the canvas bag.

It is simple, efficient and ideal as an everyday shopper bag. With the company’s logo on it, clients and customer shall be grateful for this useful and reusable promotional item. Duffle bags are also a very popular style for eco-friendly printed bags. Usually, it is also made up of unbleached cotton. It is good for people who are frequent travellers or those who love outdoor activities.

You also have multiple colour options for this one as well. For young and active ones, sports bag is among the best promotional gift they can get. The cotton drawstring bags come in many sporty colours to choose from. They are usually bigger in size and bolder in colours, portraying a much more visible and appealing logo of the company. Other eco-friendly printed bags styles include the typical tote bag or a much more stylish messenger bag to be hanged on the shoulder. The messenger bag is a little costly but a flattering option for female customers and prospects. The bleached cotton bags can be transformed into any colour using non-metallic dyes.

Other than these styles and materials, bags made from biodegradable materials such as starch bags are also used for eco-friendly printed backs. With promotional items like these, it is much easier to say that you truly care about your customers and the planet. Even though these bags might cost you a little more than the evil plastic bags, they can bag you a lot more in return.
