CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Steward Bags 100% certified organic cotton Reusable Bags Review & Giveaway!!
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.
Thank Heavens for Steward Bags 100% certified organic cotton Reusable Bags!!
I was sent some Steward Bags 100% certified organic cotton Reusable Bags to review, and they are phenomenal! The benefits of using these 100% certified organic cotton Reusable Bags are fantastic! They are a re-usable alternative to plastic, each one has the potential to eliminate hundreds of plastic bags!!
Their Mission Statement:
“To provide grocery shoppers with a high quality, eco-friendly alternative to plastic produce bags as well as encourage and challenge others to become active participants in stewardship initiatives for our planet.”
“Steward Bags was born out of our family’s love for the outdoors and our passion for stewardship of the Earth. We are committed to learning new ways to reduce our ecological foot print. We waited for others to create an eco-friendly alternative to the plastic produce bags and grew impatient. In the meantime we debated. One of us insisted on tying a knot in the top of the bag so the produce didn’t roll out. The other, however, argued that knotting the top of the bag makes it difficult to re-open and impossible to reuse. Either way these bags ended up piling up in our garbage and utimately in the local landfill. Not only have we developed this organic produce bag as an Earth friendly alternative to plastic produce bags, now we have one less thing to argue about. We feel that the development of our product is a natural progression from reusable grocery bags.”
I give Steward Bags 100% certified organic cotton Reusable Bags a huge thumbs up, and absolutely recommend that everyone purchase these phenomenal reusable produce bags!
