Five reasons why you should be using a canvas bag!
Posted on April 18 2018
- You’re saving the environment
We all know that plastic bags are terrible for the environment. They take hundreds of years to break down and in that time, plastic particles can make their way into our environment. Because of this, animals might mistake the plastic for food—not to mention that the toxins from the plastic can make their way into our food and water. This is why reusable bags are so important!
- They’re multi-functional
Use a canvas bag to pack up a towel and sunscreen for a sunny day at the beach. Save yourself from having to carry groceries in those cheap plastic bags that will most definitely break before you make it to your kitchen. Bring them to the grocery store to carry all your groceries home with ease in a bag you can trust. You can even pack up your laptop and notebooks for school or work. Long straps make carrying all of these essentials easy and comfortable. There’s really no need for any other bags!
- They’re a playful and fun accessory
Tote bags come in all shapes, sizes, colours, and designs. There’s no need to worry if they’ll go with your outfit because the options are endless. All you have to do is pick your favourite design and sport it around town to complete any look. You can even go as far as personalizing your bags with initials or designs that mean something to you. So many possibilities to get creative!
- They last longer
You can fit way more into these bags than the flimsy plastic ones at the store which are totally not worth 5p, let's be honest. The canvas can be washed and reused, so you can say goodbye to bags that are ripping or falling apart. Not to mention, they are super spacious allowing you to carry more wherever you go! If treated properly, these bags can last years and years before they see even the slightest bit of wear.
- They’re a perfect gift for your friends
Once you realize how great these multifunctional, stylish bags are, you’ll want to spread the word. But don’t just tell your friends how great canvas bags are, give them one! Whether it’s Christmas or a birthday, they are a perfect gift for the girl-on-the-go or an avid shopper. Better yet, use the canvas bag as your gift bag. It’s a win-win.
