Why You Should Stop Using Plastic Bags?
Plastic bags are not biodegradable. They fly off trash piles, garbage trucks, and landfills, and then clog storm water infrastructure, float down waterways, and spoil the landscape. If all goes well, they end up in proper landfills where they may take 1,000 years or more to break down into ever smaller particles that continue to pollute the soil and water.
Plastic bags also pose a serious danger to birds and marine mammals that often mistake them for food. Floating plastic bags regularly fool sea turtles into thinking they are one of their favorite prey, jellyfish. Thousands of animals die each year after swallowing or choking on discarded plastic bags. This mistaken identity issue is apparently a problem even for camels in the Middle East!
Plastic bags exposed to sunlight for long enough do undergo physical breakdown. Ultra-violet rays turn the plastic brittle, breaking it into ever smaller pieces. The small fragments then mix with soil, lake sediments, are picked up by streams, or end up contributing to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and other oceanic trash deposits.
The movement of eco friendly environment for the cause of global warming has brought many concepts of eco friendliness into acceptance. Cotton is a soft fibre that develops in a capsule around the seeds of cotton plants of the genus Gossypium. It is natural and pure cellulose fibre that is weaved into thread to make cotton fabric. Cotton fabric is used for various purposes like clothing, textiles and bags. There are different types of cotton like Organic Cotton, Recycled Cotton and Natural Cotton. Organic cotton is grown without the usage of chemical fertilizers. Recycle cotton is the cotton that derived from the natural cotton scrap and industrial scrap of organic cotton. Natural Cotton is cotton that is cultivated on land free from the usage of chemical pesticides and fertilizers for more than 10 – 20 years. The three types are very much in use and very eco friendly.
Our organic cotton bags are stronger when compared to other bags and can carry medium to heavy weight material in it and are designed with 100% organic cotton fabric that is unique and ultra chic. Cotton bags are simple, cool and when added with accessories make your usage even more pleasant.
