With the increasing demand for environmentally friendly tote bags, consumers have been moving away from synthetic materials in favor of naturally occurring materials such as cotton. Since naturally occurring materials are naturally biodegradable and renewable, cotton tote bags became the standard choice for an environmental option. However, for some consumers traditional cotton is not eco-friendly enough, since it is grown in ways that are potentially damaging to the local environment. In addition, although they are biodegradable, they still contribute to the growing landfills. To meet the needs of these consumers, and to address these concerns, manufacturers have introduced partially recycled cotton and organic cotton tote bags. Recycled cotton is used cotton material that has been treated and combined with new material to make a blended canvas that is part new and part recycled. Although post-consumer cotton can be recycled, many manufacturers chose to recycle the cotton scraps left behind from making their canvas bags. These leftover scraps are recycled the same way as post-consumer cotton is, but this kind of recycling is typically referred to as post-industrial recycled cotton. Post-consumer recycled cotton tote bags will generally cost more than traditional cotton bags because of the extra labor involved in cleaning and preparing the cotton to be recycled. Since less preparation is necessary for post-industrial recycled cotton, tote ルイヴィトン アウトレット 店舗 bags made this way will be much closer in price to the same bag made from traditional cotton. Organic cotton has been grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides, since these can be environmentally damaging. True organic cotton is also grown on land that has been chemical free for a specific number of years. ヴィトン バッグ Cotton that is grown organically on land that has not met this age requirement is often referred to as raw cotton. Since it is still grown organically, it is still generally considered organic. Because organic cotton needs natural fertilizers that are more expensive and since some of the cotton is lost to insects, organic canvas tote bags are more expensive than the same bag made from traditional cotton. That cost difference is a small price to pay to get the added environmental benefit in the minds of many consumers. Although recycled and organic cotton tote bags both offer a greater environmental benefit, traditional cotton tote bags are still ルイヴィトン 財布 widely used since they provide a number of eco-friendly benefits over synthetic materials. However, when it comes down to the price, the synthetic materials always win.
