The benefits to small businesses of promotional merchandise

Plastic bag usage plummets!

It’s eight months since the introduction of the 5p charge for single-use plastic carrier bags in England.

And the good news for the environment is that bag usage has slumped by around 80%. The UK’s largest retailer Tesco has indicated that the number of bags had dropped by 78% since the charge was introduced, while at Morrisons, plastic bag consumption has fallen by 80% across its stores.

One effect of this has been the increase in sales of long-life bags, manufactured from sustainable and eco-friendly textiles such as cotton, canvas and jute. What’s more, these bags offer companies fantastic long-life branding opportuinities as they have huge printing areas on which logos can be adorned.
