A nonwoven is a sheet or web structure that is mechanically, thermally or chemically bonded together by entangling fibers or filaments (and perforated films). Similarly, non-woven polypropylene fabric is a thermoplastic polymer that is similar to polypropylene but has a non-woven appearance. One of its main applications is non-woven bags for shopping. However, nonwovens are gaining popularity in the fashion industry.

To reduce plastic pollution, many plastic bag ban policies are sweeping the world, and non-woven bags (for shopping or fashion) are becoming the norm. But are non-woven bags as environmentally friendly as advertised?

Why are non-woven bags environmentally sustainable?

As we all know, the true sustainability of a product or fabric lies in its recyclability and reusability. Just like canvas shopping bags or jute bags, non-woven bags can be reused for a long time. Polypropylene is recyclable, as are non-woven polypropylene tote bags for shopping or drawstring bags for sports or leisure. For example, you can throw away a broken, non-woven polypropylene office bag after years of use. As long as it is collected and properly sorted, you can rest assured that it will enter the recycling process and give life to new items.

Non-woven bags for shopping have many environmental benefits that plastic bags or natural fibers do not have, such as:

1. You can wash and sanitize them without worrying about their elasticity; as long as you wash in cold water, your washing machine won't harm it;

2. You can spray your non-woven bags with disinfectants and antibacterial substances for added safety, especially in a time of global health concern;

Both woven and non-woven polypropylene are derived from recycled materials (plastics), so it is easy to see why non-woven shopping bags are highly sustainable. They are recycled products, which in turn make recycled products. Before we move on to the next reason why non-woven bags are the sustainable solution for plastic bags, we must say that no plastic is biodegradable or eco-friendly. However, as you probably know, some synthetics can take 400-500 years to break down, leachating harmful toxins into the ground and water sources.

On the other hand, polypropylene and non-woven polypropylene degrade in only 30 years. While they do release some toxins in the air or soil, these levels are easier to accept and manage than other types of plastic.
