Independent research proofs that medium sized re-usable foldable shopping bags from rPET and PET have the lowest environmental impact compared to other medium sized bags. Even compared to bags from natural materials like paper, cotton or jute, rPET and PET have a lower impact! Taken into account for example raw materials, water consumption, energy consumption, transportation and re-usability, rPET and PET score best (source: TNO 2014).
With the use of a Recycle Bags shopper instead of a single-use plastic bag you can help to reduce litter and protect our oceans and wildlife. It is one of the easiest but most impactful steps you can take towards a sustainable lifestyle!
So if you also aim for a low environmental impact shopper, choose for Recycle Bags.
