Reusable Bags: What You Need to Know?


By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): Whether you’re at the grocery store, stopping by the farmer’s market, or just zipping around town, reusable bags are everywhere. These environmentally conscious bags have become a statement in today’s society. While it’s true that manufacturing and shipping reusable bags do have an impact on the environment, any reusable bag is infinitely more environmentally friendly than the alternative: single-use paper or plastic bags that inevitably land in a landfill and won’t decompose for thousands of years, if at all. In fact, New York recently became the second state in America to ban single-use plastic bags. Needless to say, reusable bags are only gaining in popularity and the entire world will benefit.

High-quality bags are often better for the environment- but which are the best? The sheer volume of reusable bag options can become overwhelming, so to narrow down your options one must first decide which material you’re most interested in. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular options.

Reusable Bag Materials Guide

Cotton – available in a multitude of variations. Organic cotton is grown without pesticides and is typically certified using global standards. Traditional cotton production involves a raw, natural fiber, but requires more chemicals. Recycled cotton consists of reclaimed organic and traditional cotton scrap. Each of these are available in different weights giving your bag a lighter or heavier feel, depending on your preference. A few more benefits to cotton bags:

  • Biodegradable natural plant fiber
  • Durable and strong
  • Comes from a renewable source
  • Machine washable

Nylon – a type of synthetic polymer originally made to replace silk in certain fabrics. This is a great option if you’re looking for a bag that is lightweight, sleek, and smooth. You can design the fabric into bags of all shapes and sizes. Benefits of nylon bags include:

  • Lightweight material
  • Durable and strong
  • Folded up easily
  • Water resistant

  • Natural renewable source
  • Durable and strong
  • Blend with other fabrics
  • Biodegradable and compostable
