A Word From Our Sponsor: Terra Lauren

Our society has come to expect certain convenient necessities such as the use of paper and plastic bags, unaware of its impact on the Earth. These convenient addictions are slowly destroying our planet. They both use up natural resources and cause significant pollutions. So what's the answer to this problem? The answer to this problem is the use of reusable bags. Americans are starting to realize that reusable bags can become the standard for shopping. San Francisco was the first major city in the United States to ban plastic bags. Other cities are following suit. Some US cities and counties are even taxing plastic bag use.

This world may never be rid of all plastic products. Plastic products have many benefits, but for good cause, plastic bags have become the target in recent years as an environmental concern. Plastic bags are not biodegradable. They can sit in our landfills for thousands of years, slowly deteriorating into smaller and smaller pieces. These small pieces are then broken down into our soil, carried off by rain to the ocean, and being swallowed by marine animals. Using one reusable bag can prevent 500 plastic bags from entering our landfill in a year.

Why not use paper bags you ask? In 1999 alone, more than 14 million trees were cut down to produce 10 billion paper grocery bags used by Americans. They generate more than 70% of the pollutants found in air and water in comparison to plastic bags. Paper bags consume more space in landfills than plastic bags. They have not been proven to decompose any faster than plastic bags. In fact, nothing degrades in landfills because of lack of water, light, oxygen and other elements that are needed to help with the composition process.

There are many reusable bags out on the market today. Some are made out of canvas, recycled plastic, organic cotton, nylon, and even jute. Jute is a long, soft, shiny vegetable fiber. Many are sold for 99 cents and upwards to $50 for designer bags. There are also reusable bags that fold into a nice pouch or a little sack. For the women out there, this is great for stuffing into your purse. For men, you might want to stuff it in your back pocket if you don't mind the bulge. Choosing a bag is ultimately an individual's preference. Some shoppers like having a stiffener on the bottom of the bag. This allows you to carry heavier items and helps maintain its shape. Some like the vivid colors of bags made out of recycled plastic. Bags made out of polypropylene have been very popular over the years. They are non-toxic, washable, recyclable, and water repellent. They have a cloth like feel that make them desirable to the frequent shopper.

TerraLauren bags are stylish with unique and fun designs. They are designed with practicality in mind. Vibrant colors and designs make this bag unique from the others. It doesn't matter where you shop, you'll be styling to go green. Each bag is individually checked for quality so you know you are getting a quality product. We offer a one year defect free gurantee. So if your bag rips, we'll replace it. To get information on how to return and replace a bag, send an email to We believe that a quality product will do it's part in saving the Earth. Why add reusable bags to the existing landfills?

Lauren Chi is the founder of Terra Lauren, a reusable products company which donates a portion of their proceeds to The Nature Conservancy.
