New research is showing that plastic bags are not as harmful for the environment as it claims to be. Scientific research has been made to prove that a cotton bag production consumes more energy than a polythene bag. “A cotton bag has to be used 131 times before it has the same environmental impact than its plastic counterpart “(Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1358885/Why-need-use-environmentally-friendly-cotton-carrier-bag-171-times-green.html.) A thin plastic bag produce 1.57 Kg of Co2 which cause global warming. A cotton bag has to be reused 171 times to release the same level of Co2. (Source: dailymail.co.uk)

Reusable bags made with jute and cotton is undoubtedly better option for the planet since they are biodegradable. When disposed, they return valuable nutrients to the soil. Whereas Plastic bags clog drains and cause flooding. They pollute rivers and streams, killing animals and destroying plant life. They take years to biodegrade and have a very short life span. We suggest our consumers to avoid using plastic bags unless you have to. Start using reusable cotton and jute bags as many times possible to reduce carbon footprint on the planet. Use reusable bags a million times, very often, everywhere, wherever you want to go unless they break or decay. This is the only way you can reduce the environmental impact of a cotton bag.
