Many people are aware of the great benefits of using reusable shopping bags for our environment. But what most consumers aren't aware of is the health risks posed by continually reusing these unwashed bags.
An article in the Sydney Morning Herald highlighted the health risks posed by using unwashed reusable bags. They can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and mould growth which can contaminate food. It was also noted that this can then lead to unwanted visitors such as cockroaches. Scientists revealed that they believed reusable shopping bags that cannot be washed posed a bigger health risk than single-use plastic bags. But theres one thing shoppers can to do virtually eliminate these risks... washing reusable shopping bags does eliminate almost all of these pathogens and health risks.
Flip and tumble bags are all machine washable, therefore allowing people to use them repeatedly without this higher risk of contamination. Eliminate these health risks by simply washing your reusable shopping bags.
