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.

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.”

 

Com­pany History:

“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!
