When Zipit Zipper Bags launched their trendy bags in 2009, they knew they were doing the world a service. Their bags have thrilled thousands of customers around the globe, and they’ve also done their own little part in saving the environment.
Each year, over 100 billion new plastic bags are used in the United States alone, despite the fact a plastic shopping bag can take from 15 to 1000 years to decompose. Plastic bags are also difficult and expensive to recycle and the tiny particles they eventually may break down into can contaminate soil and waterways, polluting the very environment around them. If you think switching to paper bags is a more friendly option, think again. The United States cuts down 14 million trees per year to meet the growing demand for paper shopping bags*.
Yet despite the horrendous statistics associated with plastic and paper bags, their popularity continues to rise at an alarming rate. What can we do to cull these numbers? The answer clearly lies in using recyclable bags. Zipit Zipper Bag’s wide line of reusable bags allow you an opportunity to take part in the three R’s of global warming: reduce, recycle and reuse. They come in a variety of shapes, colors and patterns and are lightweight and durable, which makes them ideal for even kids to use.
The Zipit Zipper Bags collection also deals with the question every eco friendly fashionista asks: How do I contribute to keeping the planet green while not compromising on style? The answer lies in the unique, fun to create products that Zipit zipper bags have brought out. Each bag is delivered as a small zipper roll, which you zip up to create your own purse, tote, gym bag, messenger bag, shoulder bag or even coin purse. And because there are bags for children, it is a great way to teach young kids the importance of reusing items.
Zipit Zipper bags have another advantage in that they come in different sizes with a selection of zipped compartments. Which means you can select one based on your particular needs. Students will love the messenger bag’s many pockets which allow ample space for books, notes, and pens. Gym lovers will go crazy for the Zip It Le Gym over the shoulder large bag which has space for towels, water bottles, and snack bars. And office goers will make good use of their Zipit Laptop Cases and Computer bags which are practical, yet stylish. Because it is easy to find a bag to suit your personality and requirements, and because they are small to store, more Zipit Zipper owners will agree it is simple to keep a few of them around, ensuring at no point you are left without a bag.
Adopting reusable bags is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, creating a healthier environment for current and future generations. By investing in a single Zipit Zipper bag, you are saving trees and water, gas and oil and helping our planet with its ocean and animal life.
