Eco Shopper instead of plastic bags

Eco Shopper instead of Plastic Bags

Much fuss about plastic bags. Supermarkets use abolishment as an eco heroic action.

While the practical, but under-fire plastic bag is available at some trade chains fee-based (about 20 Euro Cents), environmentalists are skeptical if a fee will put off buyers and let them rethink. German food companies in turn sell the abolition of plastic bags in their stores as an eco heroic action. Who walks mindfully through these stores will quickly discover superfluous plastic packaging. Food to go as portioned fruits, salads for lunch to sushi packed in the environmentally harmful and unhealthy plastic containers. At the fruit and vegetable counter plastic bags are still available. Window dressing for the hurried consumer! And for eco shopper you have to hunt.

The EU prescribes to reduce the use of plastic bags by the end of 2019 to a maximum of 90 and by the end of 2025 to a maximum of 40 pieces per person per year. Nothing is easier than to avoid plastic bags. Build up your ecological conscience. Because our reusable shopping bags fit into any handbag, in a backpack, in any briefcase. There are no longer any excuses.

Eco Shopper and Fruit- and Vegetable Bags made of Organic Cotton

The only and sustainable alternative for the plastic bag: Drop it! And use ecological alternatives. For that this works, Greenpicks presents you eco shopper and fruit- and vegetable bags made of certified organic cotton and other sustainable materials.
