Each year Americans use close to 100 million single-use plastic bags, and each one of them only gets used for a short period of 12-15 minutes!!
Although we understand the convenience of a plastic bag, we want to make sure our actions have minimal impact on our environment.
So, what is 24 Hour Tees® explicitly doing to help preserve this Earth? We have been putting our efforts and focus on reducing our use of plastic with two specific actions:
1. Switching to paper bags to deliver our final printed products:
We have been trying to find the perfect replacement for our classic orange plastic bag for quite some time. Recently, we found the ideal option: paper bags!
We decided to go with them because it was the best candidate to ensure that your final printed apparel items are protected while also being safer for the Earth.
Our actions don’t stop there! One of the benefits of using paper is the endless possibilities of getting creative with the bag after it carries your t-shirt home.
To illustrate, here are some creative ideas:
a. DIY Paper Leaves: Perfect for a summer/fall event decoration indoors or outdoors!
b. DIY Paper Candle Covers: A classic touch to the simple candle glass!
c. DYI Paper Basket: The perfect craft if you have multiple paper bags at home!

2. Promoting the use of our poly tote bags.
We have been using, promoting, and selling our Poly Reusable Tote bags for a couple of years! They have become a favorite since they are a great promo item, and you can reuse them over and over again!!
Some of the extra benefits of choosing PP Bags (Polypropylene Bags) are:
- Prevent leaking by protecting surfaces and the products inside the bag!
- Made of non-toxic and anti-bacterial materials
- Easy to store and clean
- High resistance to weight stress and temperatures
- Poly materials offer the option to print high detail graphics
