Plastic bags have been in use for so many years. Shopkeepers prefer them as they cost less money. People favour them as they can carry them easily. None seems to care for the garbage they are adding to their surroundings. But, not anymore! Thanks to the environmental awareness programs and a great deal of debate on the disadvantages of the use of non-recyclable materials, general public has finally started caring for their environment. “Green” is now the most popular colour and society’s love for the nature is on its peak. It is really encouraging that people have now started understanding the issue and I’ve met a lot of people who now discourage use of plastic bags and understand why they do so. When it comes to logo shopping bags – ones that have an advertising image or a business emblem on them – it becomes even more important to avoid plastic or any other unnatural material.
Don’t let your Image Spoil
You are giving away free shopping carriers to your customers to let them carry not just their purchased item but your image with them. Also, you want to satisfy them with your service quality. What if, one day, a customer turns down your offer saying that this is not the right object to be gifted? Do you expect that person to ever return back to your shop? And it’s not just a matter of one or two customers; it is highly probable that an eco-lover won’t leave your counter before giving you a loud lecture on the negatives of synthetic material and that will definitely spoil your image for everyone present there. Instead of making people think that you are caring for them, you’ll make them think that you are not caring for their mother Earth. And wherever they’ll carry your gifted carrier with them, people will look critically to the material and then on the name of your company printed on it. Is this the real promotion you have desired for?
Use Paper Bags
Paper sacks can save you from all this drama. They are natural and recyclable and are far more eco-friendly. They will not only boost your image as an environmentally conscious businessman but will also save money because store clerks often use more plastic bags than the paper ones for stuffing the same amount of groceries. Printing your shopping logos on them is also much easier and less expensive. On average, you need an extra amount of around 10 to 20 cents for printing a design on plastic as compared to doing it on paper. So for you, the best option is to go for paper.
