FAQs

Outdoor Rugs Can the b.b.begonia rugs be really used outdoors?
b.b.begonia mats are designed for outdoor use and were made to stand up against harsh weather conditions.

This means safer working conditions, legal working hours, and a reasonable pay for work done. We only work with factories that aspire to implement fair labour practices.

How do I fold my b.b.begonia bag?


How green or environment-friendly is the b.b.begonia bag ?
Heavy duty multiple use shopping bags are often considered environmentally better than single-use paper or plastic shopping bags. A sturdy, reusable bag needs to be used 11 times to have lower environmental impact than using 11 disposable plastic bags.

It takes more than four times as much energy to manufacture a paper bag as it does to manufacture a plastic bag. And, most paper comes from tree pulp, so the impact of paper bag production on forests is enormous. In 1999, 14 million trees were cut to produce the 10 billion paper grocery bags used by Americans that year alone. Paper bag production delivers a global warming double-whammy as forests (major absorbers of greenhouse gases) have to be cut down and then the subsequent manufacturing of bags produce greenhouse gases.

There is some debate about the use of biodegradable bags as well. Both biodegradable bags and regular plastic bags require almost similar amount of energy and natural resource to produce. And the use of biodegradable bags does nothing to reduce our consumption of bags which is at the root of the problem. Most importantly, the garbage collection in most towns and cities is not sophisticated enough to sort out biodegradable bags from regular plastic bags. As such they end up in regular landfills and do not decompose easily due to lack of exposure to sun, air and moisture.

While the b.b.begonia bags are made of polyester (which use fossil fuels), it is extremely durable (polyester fibre has very high tenacity) and will last for years. The reusable aspect of this bag makes it very environment friendly, as it reduces waste and eliminates the use of one-time use products.

What are the other uses of the b.b.begonia bag aside from grocery shopping ? b.b.begonia bags are a lifestyle choice if you wish to bag beautifully. You can use them for groceries, gym, pool, beach, trail, mountains, for picnics, the hockey rink and even for travel.

Do men use b.b.begonia bags?
Well, of course! Our bags in solid colors (group name Terrasax) are especially designed and targeted towards the men of the society. We also have a variety of prints that are unisex.

If I don’t have plastic bags, what can I use for garbage disposal in my house ? We recommend the use of biodegradable and compostable kitchen and pet waste bags.
