Carrier Bags Have Gone Hip- Get One Today!

Jul 17, 2008
When thinking about a carrier bag the first thing that may come to mind is plastic bags or paper shopping bags that your groceries are packed in at the supermarket, but in actual fact, carrier bags have gone hip. They're so hip in fact, that companies are using them as a promotional tool. They're cheap, and very handy to have around.

If you look in any bag shop, the fashion magazines, and even clothing stores and you will find an array of multi coloured carrier bags in all different shapes and sizes to suit the most trendiest outfit you can find, whether you are off to the local grocery store or out to lunch with your friends.

The classic style of a carrier bag is one that has a single opening where items are placed directly into the bag all together. One advantage to this style of bag is that you won't need to go looking through all the compartments in your bag to find something. On the other hand, if there are number of items inside the bag, it may take a little while to find what it is you are looking for.

The latest trends in carrier bags that are used to accessorise an outfit include lots of silver chains and buckles. The bronze tones have been popular, and of course the ever-standard black never goes out of date.

A few years ago, carrier bags in a bio degradable fabric were manufactured for the sole purpose of carrying the grocery shopping. Originally these bags were all coloured green, but now, in line with fashion trends once again, these bags are available in many different colours including red, pink, and purple along with the standard green. They are cheap to buy, and totally reusable so they really do help reduce the use of plastic bags, which many people believe are totally bad for our ever changing environment.

Recently in the country of Australia, a levy was introduced on a trial basis for those that continued to use plastic bags when doing their supermarket shopping. This meant that anyone who did not purchase their own carrier bags like the ones mentioned in the previous paragraph, would be charged a fee of somewhere between 10 cents and 25 cents for every plastic bag used to load their shopping at the check out. Think of how much visibility your company could gain if your branded carrier bags!

Carrier bags are part of today's society. They are used in many different applications and are regularly used at many retail outlets. It is not uncommon to go to major retail outlets and find that the majority of shops are still using plastic bags to load items that people have purchased. There are of course some shops that do use paper bags.

When thinking about stationery supplies, quite often an item will be referred to as a carrier bag, but the style will not actually look like a classic bag. For example, plastic pouches that are used to transport documentation are quite often referred to as carrier bags. They appear to be very thin in appearance but in fact extremely sturdy and can carry up to 10 kilograms in weight, making them the ideal solution not only for transporting thick files, but also many other things.

So depending on what it is you want your carrier bag for, it may be that a trip is in order to your favourite bag shop, the stationery supplier or your local supermarket. Branded carrier bags are a great way to boost your company's visibility.
