Universal Flip for Life: The Importance of Reusable Bags

Plastic bags are so not cool anymore. Does anyone else feel ashamed to carry one around when you forget your trusty bag for life – we know we do! However, bags for life are not always the nicest things to be taking around town, and those handles are always an impractical design for carrying your shopping around. But, at Universal Flip, we know we can help!

Plastic bags, as we all know, are one of the leading contributors to environmental catastrophe, with 34% of sea turtles found to have ingested plastic when they died. In 2015, a staggering 730,000 tonnes of plastic bags and other single-use plastic products were manufactured, and 87% of that went to landfills! The worry over single-use plastics has caused concern globally, with campaigns and governments trying their best to reduce the use of these damaging plastics. The thing is, with non-plastic sustainable alternatives so widely available, we don’t understand why people would even want to feed into the cycle of single-use plastics. 

Now is the time to do everything we can for the environment as we are swiftly approaching the point of no return. Scientists have predicted that if humans globally do not change their ways to live a more sustainable life, then by 2030, the planet will be damaged beyond repair, and the ecosystems as we know it will never recover. Now we don’t want you to panic; you’ve got to remember that we still have time to change, and every small change – although seemingly insignificant – will contribute to the bigger picture.

However, despite scientific evidence, the fossil fuel industry plans to increase the production of plastic by 40% over the next decade! That’s why at Universal Flip, all of our bags are sustainably made and stylish to ensure that you won’t need to reach for those pesky bags for life again and to stop big plastic powerhouses from needing to increase the production of plastic. So do your part in saving the planet and shop sustainability. 

How plastic bags are destroying the environment

Our tote bags were classically designed for the beach; however, they can be used all year round due to their stylish multi-function design. We love how much we can fit in our Universal Flip tote bags, meaning you’ve only got to keep your things in one bag! Thanks to their stylish design, you could even replace your regular handbag with our carry-all bags – no one would know that your fabulous new bag was actually a sustainably crafted bag designed to fit as much shopping as you’d like in it.

We have plenty of designs sure to get people talking; plus, you can feel proud knowing you’re doing your part in creating a brighter and better planet for the future. Remember, plastic bags were so 2012; don’t get caught behind on the trends. 

We all know the anger we feel towards forgetting our reusable bags. Still, with Universal Flips iconic tote bags, you’ll never forget it again. Simply replace your old handbag with one of our sustainable carry-all bags, and you’re killing two birds with one stone. Did you know that even if you’re buying paper or bags for life, they still come at a huge environmental cost to the planet? You may think that because it recycles, it is the better option. But, studies have proven again that the most sustainable and ethical solution to shopping bags is to keep reusing the same bags over and over. 

So please, listen to our message and help us in this fight against the climate crisis. All it takes is one small investment to make a great deal of change to the planet. Do your part and shop our sustainable, stylish bags at Universal Flip.

  5. Love this Beach Blanket used it on my last trip much less bulky than taking towels to the beach. Rolls up neatly and good to towel dry yourself off after a dip in the sea or pool.
