Benefits To Consumers
One reusable bag can replace hundreds or even thousands of single use plastic bags over the course of its lifetime. These bags are fully recyclable and some of them are biodegradable. Earthwise bags are great for carrying just about anything – and using them is an environmentally responsible thing to do. Earthwise bags offer:
a) Durability – Earthwise bags are sturdier than disposable bags. You may head to https://www.universalplastic.com/stand-up-pouches.php, if you want to know more about poly bags.

c) Multiple uses – Use your Earthwise bag at the gym, the beach, as a lunch tote – just about anything you can think of! They even make a great gift.
d) Safety – Earthwise bags are washable, non-toxic, and hypoallergenic
e) Protection – Be “Earthwise” – and help protect our environment.
Benefits To Retailers
Earthwise reusables bags can make a huge financial impact with even a minimal acceptance rate. Each time a consumer returns with a reusable bag, there is an average cost savings on disposable paper and plastic bags that would normally be supplied to them for free. On an average shopping trip, the cost savings may be 5¢ to 50¢!
Plastic bags, on average, can be packed with only about three items. Because they are so thin, double bagging is often required to hold a decent amount of groceries, which ultimately creates more waste and more cost. Just one Earthwise bag can hold more than three plastic bags’ worth of groceries – roughly 40 lbs each!
