Paper, plastic, or polypropylene bags? As society becomes more environmentally conscious, reusable and recyclable non-woven polypropylene totes will continue to increase in popularity.
Beyond the environment, there are several other benefits to using eco-friendly bags:
- They can carry at least twice as much as standard plastic bags
- Easy to carry
- More durable
- Stylish - offering many different sizes and colors
What is Polypropylene?
One of the most common materials used in making reusable bags is non-woven polypropylene. Polypropylene is a flexible resin polymer and is often referred to simply as “non-woven." The process involved in making polypropylene is called extrusion. The result of this process, which includes several chemical and heat processes, is a material designed to have the look, feel, and quality of cloth.
Benefits of non-woven polypropylene:
- Easy to clean
- Tough and durable
- Flexible, which allows the bag to be folded for easy storage
- Air permeability
- Fire resistant depending on style
- Water repellent and so avoids bacteria and odors
- Most are recyclable (classified as recycle code number 5)
