I’ll confess – I’m obsessed with reusable bags and reducing trash on a daily basis, and it’s nice to know I’m not the only one. Let me introduce you to ReusableBagStore.com and its founder Shabbir Nooruddin. Shabbir shares my obsession with bags and the planet, so he and his partner (also named Shabbir) are focusing on the three most common bag issues that most people use on a daily basis: reusable sandwich bags, reusable shopping bags, and produce bags. Their vision is to usher in a new type of materialism: materialism where the most important thing is ensuring that the materials we use are not harmful to the Earth and environment.
Stop the Trash Everyday
ReusableBagStore.com has several styles of reusable sandwich bags so you’re sure to find something that fits your lifestyle. They sell 100% organic cotton bags, dishwasher-safe bags, and leak-proof pouches that open into placemats – perfect for kids sitting at cafeteria tables or outside. There are also great reusable lunch bags and BPA-free lunch boxes. What a wonderful way to reduce the trash normally created by packing lunches every day. In addition to bags, they also sell eco-friendly kitchen products. I love the baby/children’s products: bamboo feeding spoons, stainless steel snack cups, and backpacks made from recycled and non-toxic materials.
To top it all off, there’s a learning center with articles on all types of green issues, including how to care for your reusable items, how long it takes different items to decompose, even how to green your Halloween. Their mission is to “make it as easy as possible for you to reduce waste and save money by using reusable bags instead of regular plastic bags.” I think they’re off to a great start!
