With Saint Patrick's Day right around the corner, everyone's attentions turn to parades, corned beef and cabbage, shamrocks and the color green, but did you know the the original color of Saint Patrick was blue!
As early as the 17th century the official color of the holiday started to change to green and Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock - a three-leaved plant - to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. In the 1798 rebellion, Irish soldiers wore full green uniforms on March 17th to make a political statement, hence the phase, "the wearing of the green".
In current times, green is still being used to promote statements of opinion - both politically and personally. Keeping green, going green and buy green are heard over and over regarding the actions we incorporate to save the health of the planet. Many green alternatives are available as we make purchasing decisions during our busy day. Biodegradable, reusable options are becoming more and more popular among customers and stores alike. At BagsOnTheNet
we take pride in helping to preserve our planet and by offering the options our customers need to make smart decisions. We offer a variety of reusable bags
bags to do our part in reducing the carbon foot prints in our environment!
The Paper Shopping Bag
Here is another tremendous workhorse of the bag industry.
Why would they choose this bag? Well, I'm glad you ask. First, it has good hand. What do I mean? Well, when you walk out of a store, it feels more substantial then a plastic bag. Second, with a multiple of sizes to choose from and have on hand in your retail store, you'll be able to use a strong bag to put items of any size in for your clients to walk away with; while, of course, advertising your store. These bags also have a funny way of having many lives; so don't be surprised if weeks or months after the purchase, your customer is not taking their lunch to work with one of these bags - Consider it your moving billboard!
We make these for a wide range of users and some are, doctor's offices, shoe stores, clothing, tourism spots, and the list keeps going. Check out The Paper Shopping Bag and let BagsOnTheNet help you find the right solution for your store.
Simple question, really, but it all depends on what you consider bulk. If you use 40,000 industrial poly bags a month in your operation, then buying 2 pallets at a time with free shipping is not unrealistic. If you buy 300,000 poly bags, and you only use 10,000 a year, you’re out of your mind with money to burn.
We work with the largest of companies down to a mom and pop, and they all get the same attention and service - they just have different needs. Working with the large operations; when they buy in bulk, they are doing a few things: 1. Locking in the price of that commodity at that particular time. 2. Guaranteeing they do not have a slowdown in assembly due to missing components (BAGS). And 3. they take advantage of high volume discounts and, many times, free shipping on those orders. When you are working on a grand scale, those pennies add up to large dollars at the end of a year.

Folk’s, here’s a great article that helps put a different perspective on the latest rage within the retail bag industry. The author sites some pretty compelling science to back up his ideas why banning bags might not be the wisest thing to do.
You want to feel good and think plastic bags
are bad, so you say, “Hey, I’m going to buy those reusable bags
”, only to realize that those, too, are plastic. Want to buy paper bags
as a substitute, great, we sell those too; but as we’ve been saying for years now, it’s not what bag people use, it’s a question of how do people dispose of that bag AFTER they use it.
Again, why do we have to turn to outright bans that punish everyone? You may ask, “How may that be?” Well, store owners that sell low cost goods are the folks who buy the lower cost bags
; and if they have to upgrade a bag because of bans, then ultimately those stores are going to raise their prices to comply with new laws. Hence, we, the paying public, pay more for the things we need in the long run.
As a store or business owner, you need knowledge and information to help you make the right choices. Informed decisions help business owners keep up with the demands and wishes of their clientele! The following article has some very interesting facts regarding the pro's and con's of the uses of plastics!
