The number of plastic bags being produced has been increasing over the years, with many of the single-use bags being given away free of cost in many malls, supermarkets and stores as they are cheap. But the plastic bag you use one time will be a danger to environment forever. And something needs to be done about it, because we will not stop shopping, but you can say no to plastic!
Women and shopping?
Two words that go very well together and the fact cannot be denied that shopping is like a paradise for women. Grocery shopping, outfits, footwear, belts, bags, skincare products, make up products, eye wears and a lot of other items attract women. They like everything that raise their style quotient. Women give a special place to items which make them look good. Every item that they buy is packaged or packed in plastic or paper that they are unaware of its damages. The more they buy the more they waste which from one to two to hundred, thousand and millions of bags could be wasted everyday.
We now live in a world that the environmental waste is growing, especially plastic bag pollution. Where trash disposal and recycling are not highly regulated and the proliferation of plastic bags have created dramatic social and environmental consequences. The issue of plastic bag pollution demonstrates the environmental consequences of development strategies that have emphasized economic growth with seemingly little concern or value for local cultures and environments, let alone the experiences and lives of poor women.
Reducing the use of plastic bags, and thus pollution, requires social and economic change that may be difficult to implement without involving one of the largest consumers of plastic bags, women, specifically those selling at the market. For that reason Bumitas is willing to enter the market with bioplastic shopping bags that would fulfill the daily needs of the people especially women by coordinating in bringing a positive impact to the world and businesses. The problem with plastic bags has been created by its over consumption in the last four decades. People managed well enough before the advent of the plastic bag. To maintain living standards, Bumitas with innovation and technology could easily replace the harmful shopping bags that has polluted the nature, in the same way that alternate fuel cars are replacing the old gas models.
Our shopping bags could be custom ordered based on the size, color, font, shape, character and logo of your product. We believe that, its never late to change and what better than change for sustainable development that could benefit now and future.
