CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Credobags Giveaway!!**CLOSED**

 

For some, it can be hard to imag­ine a world with­out plas­tic — espe­cially plas­tic bags.

 

 
The cons of using plas­tic bags are so over­whelm­ing I don’t think I can think of any pros. They are a huge pol­lu­tion prob­lem, their light­weight design allows them to blow away eas­ily. The fact that they are free gives them no value so peo­ple don’t think about how they dis­pose of them. They are made from petro­leum, which could be used for fuel or energy. They don’t biode­grade, instead they break­down and are mis­taken for food and are often eaten by both land and marine ani­mals which is fatal. They are found every­where and many ani­mals become fatally entangled.

 
They are not biodegrad­able, so they will per­sist pretty much for­ever, wher­ever they end up. Land­fills if we are lucky, but because of their wide­spread use and their abil­ity to fly away in the wind, they can be a big part of the trash along roads and fields. If they get into the water, they look like food and end up clog­ging the stom­achs of a vari­ety of ani­mals, most famously sea tur­tles look­ing for jellyfish.

 

The recy­cling of plas­tic bags, while prefer­able to other dis­posal meth­ods, is not cost-effective. Plas­tic bags have only existed for 25 years yet the bil­lions that have been pro­duced since then have caused immea­sur­able dam­age to the envi­ron­ment and to wildlife.

 
Thanks to Cana­dian made Cre­dobags , there is no more need for these DREADFUL plas­tic bags!!

 

Let me intro­duce you to Cre­dobags! Cre­dobags are Cana­dian Made!


Cana­dian made Cre­dobags is an eco-conscious com­pany head­quar­tered in Mon­treal, Canada. Their goal is to inspire peo­ple to make small, sim­ple changes in their every­day habits; changes that col­lec­tively and cumu­la­tively help our environment.


They believe that an easy first step is to adopt a “bag strat­egy”: rou­tinely carry a reusable bag or two with you, rather than use plas­tic or paper bags pro­vided by retailers.


To pro­mote this shift in habit, the founder and pres­i­dent, Judy Lazar, tapped into her 20 years of apparel man­u­fac­tur­ing expe­ri­ence to ful­fill a vision that would embody her credo. She designed a styl­ish line of high-quality, reusable bags that con­ve­niently stash in a purse, pocket , glove com­part­ment or trunk until you need them. And even bet­ter, they are CANADIAN MADE!!


The line includes the first North American-made reusable mesh pro­duce bag. This inno­va­tion pro­vides a long over­due eco-wise alter­na­tive to those tear-off-the-roll plas­tic film bags that gro­cery stores and farm­ers’ mar­kets pro­vide for bag­ging fruits and veg­eta­bles.
At Cana­dian Made Cre­dobags, they actively seek out the lat­est sus­tain­able mate­ri­als – such as organic cot­ton, hemp and bam­boo – so that they can con­tinue to improve their bags, and keep improv­ing them, until they leave the small­est pos­si­ble “car­bon footprint”.


And their com­mit­ment to doing what’s right doesn’t end there.
They are ded­i­cated to being socially respon­si­ble in all aspects of their busi­ness. They sup­port the domes­tic econ­omy by man­u­fac­tur­ing their bags in Canada. In con­junc­tion with tex­tile fac­to­ries, they develop the fab­rics with which those bags are made. This enables them to mon­i­tor labour con­di­tions, the envi­ron­men­tal impact of pro­duc­tion, and the authen­tic­ity of raw mate­ri­als. Cana­dian made Cre­dobags do every­thing they can to ensure that the bags meet the high­est eth­i­cal and qual­ity standards.

 

I was extremely THRILLED to meet the folks over at Cre­dobags! What a won­der­ful and bril­liant idea they had in cre­at­ing Cre­dobags, and it excites me even more know­ing that these are truly Cana­dian Made!!

 

I had the oppor­tu­nity of meet­ing the owner of Cre­dobags, who so gen­er­ously offered to give away to one Lucky Cool­Canucks reader, her trio of Cana­dian Made Every­bay Bags as pic­tured here:
