Hemp tote bags are here, and they’re fabulous!
We all know plastic is slowly destroying many beautiful parts of our planet. We hear all too often about sea mammals and birds dying, being cut open, and discovering their tummies are full of plastic straws, bags, and other rubbish. So what can we do? We can take steps to immediately reduce our use of single use plastics.
Down with the plastic bag!
Getting rid of plastic bags is easier said than done (Think rubbish bin liner or a place to store wet/soiled nappies). However, it can be done. How? Make new habits. Better habits. Buy a reusable tote bag.
Why is hemp fabric so special?
I’m glad you asked. Not all fabric is created equal. There’s an environmental impact linked to everything we do. Hemp just happens to be pretty fabulous for a few reasons:
- It’s extremely fast growing
- It requires much less water to produce when compared with cotton
- There are no pesticides required to grow hemp
- It’s durable and strong (Stronger than both jute and cotton)
- It’s drought tolerant
- Ok, that’s probably enough reasons. There are a load of reasons why you should also think about consuming hemp oil/powder/capsules, but that’s for another day!
It is gentle on the environment
You have many choices when it comes to purchasing a reusable bag. Cotton, jute, synthetic fibre and more. The new Totally Balmy hemp tote bags are made from hemp as I believe hemp has a huge place in our future. Hemp has far less negative impact on the environment than other similar options. Just see the above list. It’s pretty amazing stuff.
Furthermore, these bags are available in three fabulous designs. What’s not to love?! By investing in one of these bags you’re gaining a good quality, hilarious, environmentally-friendly carrying vessel that will grab peoples’ attention.
Let’s all totally give a sh!t about our planet!
