WE REPURPOSE/RECYCLE REUSABLE BAGS! PROFITS ON THESE PRODUCTS GO TO CHARITY!
Promotional companies have flooded the market with billions cheap reusable bags and have convinced everyone from Corporate America to Mom & Pop shops that they’re being “green” by offering these bags. Plus what business owner can resist the opportunity to look green when they're making green: most reusable bags that cost $0.10 - $0.25 to produce are sold for $0.99 - $3.00. If everyone by law has to use them then they also save $.01 to $.05/bag they would have had to give out! So besides that little deceptive "greenwashing", what’s the problem?
1. Most of the material used in reusable bags is not a real fabric, it a plastic fiber (polypropylene) spunbound to look like it’s ”woven” - hence the name “nonwoven polypropylene”. It rips easily, like paper.
2. To clean it you're supposed to "hand wash in cold only". The material wears out quickly when washed in the water temperature hot enough to kill bacteria.
3. The material takes much longer to degrade than regular plastic bags.
4. They may contain lead.
5. WORST OF ALL: There is virtually NO place that will recycle them and they will end up in a landfill!
THE SOLUTION? CRESBI crates!
• Durable & long-lasting, even if you break the hinge they can still be used for storage.
• Dishwasher safe and able to handle the hot temperatures needed to kill bacteria.
