Promotional Bags Always Come in Handy

There is one product which will always be useful, however much you spend on it and that's promotional bags.

Promotional bags are a great way to make your brand more visible as people will carry them around, travelling around with their owner wherever they go. With the variety of bag designs and the amount of usages they have it's no wonder they are one of the most popular forms of promotional merchandise.

Tote shopper bags are really popular forms of merchandise, as they are so in the news at the moment. With increased environmental agendas, banning businesses in Wales for giving away free plastic bags, bags are really topical at the moment. You could give away shopper bags to your customers and promote your environmental agenda at the same time. With shops increasingly charging for plastic bags, this is a really good tactic to employ.

So why are plastic bags so bad? Plastic bags are really bad for the environment as most aren't biodegradable, this means they can take over 1,000 years to decompose. Plastic bags are also a danger to wildlife, thousands of wild animals die each year choking due to plastic bags. With Wales already on board charging for all plastic bags, other countries are likely to follow suit sooner rather than later. This makes it a better time than ever to introduce promotional bags.

At Total Merchandise we have a wide selection of promotional bags which range from eco friendly bags to rucksacks which can be taken on day trips. There are also cool bags available which are perfect to be taken on picnics. The type of bag you choose for your company will depend on how and when you are distributing them, for example, you wouldn't distribute a picnic bag in the Summertime. If you were choosing to distribute bags at a trade show then you would be more likely to give away tote bags for people to carry their stuff in. Similarly, tote bags are easier to distribute as they are smaller.

The important thing to remember is that all of these bags are going to be much stronger than plastic bag so will be considered as higher in quality. They are also all considered to be eco-friendly which would help to promote your environmental agenda. Should you want to use promotional bags within your marketing campaign then have a look on the Total Merchandise website for inspiration.
