Encouraging consumers to use fewer environmentally damaging plastic carriers has long been a challenge. If modern urban life had a flag it would be a plastic bag ugly, somewhere unreachable and likely to remain there long after the last bit of open space has been concreted into a supermarket car park. The UK's largest supermarket chain said this month that it would seek to cut the number of carrier bags it gives to customers by 25% over the next two years. Much more could be achieved by getting people to use their own, durable carrier bags.

In light of the recent discussions about global warming, CO2 emissions and land fill photo tote bags may prove a smart, sub EUR12 gift idea.
Do carrier bags matter?
Every year, an estimated 17.5 billion plastic carrier bags are given away by supermarkets, an average of 290 bags for every person in the UK (Waste Watch). According to "Recycle Now" 80% of shoppers put everything into free carrier bags at the supermarket, using them usually only once. This results in 100,000 tonnes of plastic bags being thrown away - equivalent to the weight of 70,000 mid size cars. Reusable carrier bags are a small contribution, but they certainly avoid excessive usage of fossil fuels and landfill.
Carrier bags are simple but effective bags designed to carry everything from documents to firewood. Given the wide range of types and applications of the bags, it just makes sense to use printed customized carrier bags for business ads. Relatively inexpensive to make and easy to match with all sorts of consumers, these types of bags can easily get the name of a company or product in front of customers who may be relatively immune to other forms of advertising.
One of the greatest benefits associated with printed bags is that people will use and see them regularly. This includes not only owners of the bags, but others who see those bags in use. For example, mailing bags that are emblazoned with a product name or company logo will be seen by people on the street, in the classroom, and in any public place that the carrier chooses to visit. In like manner, carrier bags designed to function as backpacks or computer bags will be seen by many people in a number of settings. The result is building name recognition for the company or the product, prompting consumers to take a second look when they see that product on store shelves.
By contrast, carrier bags may be used primarily for one function but also be capable of being used for other applications. There are printed bags for all sorts of applications. Paper carrier bags may be used for retail purchases, while reinforced canvas carrier bags are ideal for transporting heavier objects. The bags can be in constant use around the house, at school, or in the workplace. The more functions that a given bag design can fulfill, the more effective the advertising effort.
