Go Green with Green Bags and Green Shopping Bags

Updated on August 17, 2010

Go Green with Green Bags and Green Shopping Bags

We all want to contribute to saving this little blue marble we call Earth. One way we can all pull together to preserve precious natural resources might be to start using green shopping bags.

A 'green' shopping bag doesn't need to be green in color. The word 'green' has moved well beyond a chromatographic description; today we use the word to describe activities and materials that respect the fragile nature of the Earth. We "go green" by identifying recyclable and renewable products instead of single-use items that clog landfills and harm living things instead of biodegrading.

Visit for all your green bagging needs. Manufacturing green bags since 1975, the Holden Company of Dallas and Houston Texas offers unique branding opportunities across a wide range of bags. Their "Little Storm" grocery bag carries up to 30 pounds; production time is as little as 1-3 days. Holden will emblazon your corporate logo or personalized "go green" message on production runs as low as 300 units.

At the Earth comes first. They aim to raise awareness of the environmental impact of some manufacturing processes and disposable products. Their "Clean and Green" line of bags are made from 100% recyclable fabrics and are machine washable in cold water. The Clean Green Bag Company is based in Sudbury, Massachusetts. offers a wide range of eco-friendly bags for business owners. They print custom logos and messages on their products, allowing companies to get out their Earth-first message in a responsible manner. They recognize the current over-reliance on disposable plastic bags and the detrimental impact on the oceans from materials that do not completely break down in a reasonable amount of time.

Their "Standard Green Bag" is manufactured from recycled polypropylene materials. Each bad has durable tote carrying straps and is designed to be larger than standard shopping bags.

Going green is fun and easy with the Green Bag from Their standard bag is designed to be used for shopping and other light-duty activities. Each bag is completely recyclable and holds the equivalent of 3 to 4 plastic grocery bags. Zip-up bags and wine bottle totes are also available. Custom imprinting takes a little longer, but is certainly worth the wait. The Green Bag Company has offices in San Francisco and also around the world in Australia, Ireland, England, Switzerland, Spain, and Sweden.

"Green" is a state of mind and a lifestyle, not just a color. provides a product line of colorful and fun green bags that are available in a rainbow of colors. The line of "Going Green" shopping bags will match any outfit for any style-conscious shopper. Bags can be ordered in increments of 100 at very reasonable prices. Each bag is constructed of non-woven polypropylene from non-recycled material.


When the cashier says "Paper or Plastic?", answer with "neither, thank you", and proudly hand over your green shopping bags. You'll feel better and the Earth won't have to bear the burden of additional non-renewable discarded packaging.

      Sorry -- I usually like your Hubs, but this one is useless. I will give up my paper and plastic only when they pry them out of my cold, dead hands.

      Greenies have fallen victim to the culture of tokenism and corporatism.

      Plastic and paper are used as garbage bags. So you will have to BUY garbage bags instead of getting them as a grocery container at checkout. Another profit center for the bag manufacturers and supermarkets. You will be buying them at retail instead of the stores getting them at wholesale.

      Cloth bags, after a few uses become unsanitary. That means WASHING them, if possible. That takes, HORRORS!, soap and water.

      The plastic bags COULD be made biodegradable. That they are not is part of the plot to cost us more money and provide more profits to supermarkets. (They won't have to buy bags, and they can SELL bags to YOU. Sweet!)

      Finally, the whole problem is due to TOO MANY PEOPLE. If all the greenie-weenies were REALLY concerned about the environment, you would support POPULATION CONTROL.

      That means birth control, abortion, spaying and neutering, and even infanticide. That means taking on the religions and Chambers of Commerce (the "growth is good" mantra). It means stop subsidizing "the need to breed" with tax subsidies, "free" education and other services. "If you pop out a litter, you better have the means to support and educate them, otherwise your little rug rats will enjoy a life of poverty."

      Finally, I have not contributed to the mess caused by overpopulation. I am not going to willingly sacrifice. The breeders should be the ones sacrificing.

      "Whatever your cause, it is a lost cause without population control."
