Since the introduction of the 5p bag charge in 2015, stats show that single use plastic bag sales for large retailers has dropped by almost 90%. Our promotional cotton shopper sales increased by a huge 40% from 2017-18, with more people switching to reusable bags in the fight against single-use plastic and hoping to minimise the thousands of bags that go into landfill each year.
As promising as these figures look, retailers still distributed more than 1.1 billion 5p plastic bags during 2018-2019 so there’s still more to be done to reduce usage. Some scientists say it can take up to 500+ years for one plastic bag to decompose so we know that buying reusable bags are better for the environment – but it’s also a great opportunity for companies to use reusable promotional bags to promote their brands.
