The common reason why people are preferring cotton bags is that they come with so many benefits. Statistics suggest that reusable cotton bags are not only eco-friendly and practical but also contribute to lower air pollution and soil and water contamination levels. All the plastic we use gets dumped in the ocean every year which is also the cause of death of marine animals.
Though there are other green packaging options like paper bags, but cotton stands out for its versatility. There are several benefits of choosing a reusable bag over plastic bags.
Cotton Bags are hygienic and can be washed after every use. Paper bags and plastic bags are prone to absorbing moisture, but with cotton, these are not such issues. Therefore, after proper cleaning, you can use them for a number of times to carry your stuff.
Cotton reusable grocery bags come with great load-bearing capability. This adds to the versatility of the cotton bags. It easily allows people to carry weight without having the fear of tear. Not only this, but some stores also encourage their customers to use sustainable options by offering shopping incentives such as gift cards, discount coupons, etc.
