11 Environmentally Friendly Bags to Shop in Singapore
Published on 1 November 2019
Did you know that by 2050, it is estimated that there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans (World Economic Forum report, 2016)? To save the oceans from this prediction coming true, many eco companies have come up with solutions, producing products such as environmentally-friendly reusable bags to replace single-use plastic bags that are widely used in supermarkets.
The most reusable bags are made of paper, which would take two to four weeks to disintegrate and decompose. Compared to plastic, which takes from 200 to 1000 years to be fully degraded, these traditional paper eco-bags are a big step up. However, the production of paper eco-bags is far from sustainable, as they involve cutting down trees, which would take decades to replenish.
Mussen Ecobag – a company that specializes in supplying non-woven eco-friendly bags with product distribution in Singapore and Indonesia has state-of-the-art modern technology to supply customizable non-woven eco-bags of all shapes and sizes that can be personalized with different stitching, piping and heat-printing styles, a.k.a. ultrasonic. Best of all, this non-woven polypropylene (a type of textile fabric that’s made up of separated fibres) bags only take 6 to 9 months to fully disintegrate and decompose. How about that?!
