Bags are an indispensable part of our day-to-day life, so why not look for eco-friendly alternatives that are recyclable and avoid using plastic bags? Some well-known eco-friendly alternatives are bags made from paper, jute, cloth, and natural material like palm leaves and bamboo. Bags made from eco friendly material can be used for a variety of purposes such as to shop, to carry lunch, and to go to the beach. You could buy tote bags, shopping bags, beach bags, lunch bags and string bags made of natural fiber or recycled materials. Eco-friendly bags make ideal corporate and personal gifts. Cloth bags that roll up into their own pouches are handy as they can be stuffed into handbags and taken out at supermarket checkout lines.
