Bags for life are becoming increasingly important as the world deals with the plastic epidemic threatening our environment.
It’s almost impossible to eliminate plastic from our lives altogether but it’s something we need to be more aware of and everyone needs to do their bit to stop the necessary waste we produce.
Reusable bags are one way we can all make a difference
Its shocking to think that if we do nothing about the production of plastics and the millions of tons of waste we produce that by 2050 our oceans will have more [plastic] in them than living species. It’s a shocking and distressing thought, we have created this material and used it for the greater good of our society, but now it is causing huge problems.
That’s why here at oceanJ we are trying to reduce the amount of plastic in our postage and packaging, it’s why we look for products that have some positive impact as opposed to adding to the negatives about plastics.
Bags for life are a great starting point,
LOQI have created a marvellous collection of bags that are quirky, colourful and very durable. Yes they cost more than a carrier bag, even a ‘bag for life’ carrier, but the cost is only a monetary one, the benefit to the planet cannot be underestimated.
These LOQI bags are sturdy, and fold down taking a tiny amount of space in your handbag and they can carry a significant amount of stuff!
To put the seriousness of this into context, think of a country the size of France, then imagine a floating pile of plastic debris twice that size in the Pacific Ocean (thanks to news for the article).
It’s time to take action! Do whatever you can to stop this plague of plastic, every little bit helps, and we, here at OceanJ are committed to bringing you products that support this worldwide cause.
Oh, and if you are wondering how big the LOQI bags are, here’s Martha, our Rhodesian Ridgeback assistant putting the size into perspective… she is a very big girl!
