ICEGREEN introduces reusable shopping bags as the new 'Green' way to shop
Going green is top of mind for today's consumer and reusable shopping bags are the answer they've been looking for
TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - Toronto City Council has recently announced the ban of plastic shopping bags. On January 1, 2013, plastic shopping bags will be out and reusable shopping bags will be the new carrier of choice for consumers and retailers.
Now, more than ever, environmental concerns like global warming have shoppers looking for a greener way to spend. In order to address these increasingly prominent issues, ICEGREEN has developed a stylish solution for consumers concerns, creating a line of reusable shopping bags that are both durable and stylish. While consumers have been slowly warming up to the idea of reusable shopping bags over plastic shopping bags, ICEGREEN wants to make sure that they are also aware of how to best use and maintain them.
Major urban centers like Los Angeles are moving to ban plastic shopping bags in supermarkets all together and with Toronto not far behind this new trend, ICEGREEN has developed a line of customizable reusable bags for retailers. They can now choose from custom printed reusable shopping bags made with a wide range of eco-friendly materials that contain recyclable content. "The choices we offer retailers translates into satisfied customers who feel good about using the product," says David Lawson, ICEGREEN Eco Packaging founder and president. Seattle and San Francisco are also making the move to banning plastic shopping bags and it won't be long before many other North American cities follow suit.
With today's consumer concerned with their personal ecological footprint, retailers are becoming more aware that there is a need to help their customers reach this environmental goal. ICEGREEN is one of North America's fastest growing manufacturers and suppliers of contaminant-free and lead-free bags and carries a wide-variety of customizable, stylish and commercially viable packaging options including reusable bags for retail, thermal bags, paper bags and other eco-friendly options for consumers and retailers.
When it comes to learning about how to maintain reusable bags, ICEGREEN has become the go-to source for consumers and retailers alike. "Consumers should be aware that certain foods, such as raw meat, fish and poultry can contain bacteria that cause foodborne illnesses," says David Lawson, "We recommend that you wash bags regularly, especially after transporting fresh produce, meat, poultry or fish to avoid cross-contamination," he says. It is recommended that all bags be rinsed or laundered to avoid the contamination from microbes and bacteria that can cause illness.
When January 2013 arrives, ICEGREEN is prepared with a large inventory of reusable shopping bags and a wealth of helpful and health related information for consumers in Toronto, Ontario and beyond.
