Do you stuff your plastic shopping bags under your sink or in one of your kitchen drawers? Using plastic bags can be harmful to the environment and they can clutter your home. The expert home cleaners at MOLLY MAID recommend using a canvas bag instead. Here are four reasons why:

1. A canvas bag lasts a long time while plastic bags are not biodegradable and can harm wildlife and the environment.

2. Plastic bags stretch and rip apart easily – they're really not as reliable as canvas to carry heavy groceries.

3. Canvas bags are easy to keep clean – just throw them into the wash, which rids them of any bacteria and dirt.

4. Canvas bags are multi-purpose – use them for general shopping, books, clothes, etc.
