The Advantages of Cotton Bags

If you’re looking for a sustainable promotional product, cotton bags may be the item for you. In comparison to their plastic-counterpart, they are reusable, washable, durable and ethically sourced. Available in a range of sizes and printing options, you can create a cotton bag to suit your business and your customers’ needs! If you need more proof for why you should choose cotton bags for your next promotional product, read on:

Sustainable and ethically sourced

Cotton bags are made from sustainable materials. These materials are 100% recyclable and also biodegradable when they reach the end of their life. Single-use plastic bags on the other hand, take 1000 years to degrade in landfill, creating a significant impact on the environment.


The possibilities are endless when it comes to customising your cotton bag. Adding a personal touch that your employees and customers like couldn’t be easier. There is a wider range of printing opportunities available in contrast to their counterparts. The latest in screen printing offers direct to garment printing (DTG) as well as digital screen transfer (DST), allowing you to print any design on to your bag of choice.

Varied uses

Available in a range of sizes, cotton bags can be vessels for a variety of different things; from mailing bags and hardware, to groceries and clothing. The breathable materials allow for a wider range of options and their washable material means they can stay looking newer for longer.

Durable and reusable

Unlikely to rip like plastic bags, cotton bags allow you to carry heavier loads for longer periods of time. And should you carry something that creates a dirty inside, you can simply bung your bag in the wash and reuse again, and again!


Cotton bags are a very affordable promotional product, making them an ideal choice for companies, big and small. And by being affordable they are allowing sustainability to be an accessible option for all businesses too, allowing them to do their bit towards a more sustainable future.
