BACKGROUND OF THE INDUSTRY

Reusable shopping bags, such as PP woven and non woven bags and also various other organic-based bags, are growing in popularity over the last few years. However, the actual history of these bags originates prior to 2005 or maybe even 2000, when the green shopping bag movement began gaining its momentum which can be seen worldwide today. In fact, reusable woven shopping bag manufacturers began producing their shopping bags as early as 1990s. Through theyears, these bags have undergone a noteworthy improvement with regards to what components they are produced with, what they cost, and their popularity within society. The genuine history of these bags actually begins in 1977 when the disposable plastic bags started being put to use around the world, starting in the US. In spite of the fact that the expendable bags had been originally viewed as the perfect replacement for paper bags, in order to save trees, it didn¶t take very long for consumers to acknowledge that the bags create pollutionin lakes, rivers, and oceans. By the early 1990s, reusable bag manufacturers were forming businesses around the world. Initially, these shopping bags were taking a variety of forms and being made out of materials varying from cotton to nylon. In the mid 1990s, though, the component called polypropylene began taking the actual lead. The bags, known as PP shopping bags, are precisely what are used in many modern retail chains. The initial bag productivity type with this particular material was non woven PP shopping bags, however woven PP carry bags are widely-used today as well. The reason this specific material took the lead in the shopping bags manufacturing industry is that it was cheap and could be produced for under $0.25 USD per bag yet very durable. Historically, users havefelt comfortable paying up to $0.99 to $2.99 per bag in US dollars. Productivity acelerated beginning in 1999. According to the US International Trade Commission Import Database, nearly three billion bags have been imported into the US since 1999. Volumes are high likewise in countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. However, we can easily expect that the numbers will probably continue to rise - not just in those countries but around the world. Additionally the environmentally friendly trend is growing use of green shopping tote bags, and we also are seeing a trend in the legislation. Cities or provinces in the US, Mexico, the UK, Australia, and many more have recently ratified legislation supporting use of reusable shopping bags. While some have gone as far as banning disposable shopping bags, other countries have increased an excise tax on the throw away bags at the same time subsidizing environmentally friendly grocery bags. Most of these laws have proven very successful in improving the use of reusable pp bags as well as many other materials of eco friendly bags.

These days, the bags are not only a legal and green trend, but also a fashion movement. Reusable grocery bags exporters are presenting numerous customizations that allow people to express their style with their bags. While the years continue, it can be estimated that this upward trend in reusable shopping bag use will remain strong.1

Market Structure ± market structure is used to group employees on the basis of specific market the company sells in. a company could have 3 different markets they use and according to this structure. which is a combination of function. This kind of structure is suitable for smaller organizations like small accounting firms and law offices. with staff departments for support and specialization. each would be a separate division in the structure. Line and Staff Structure ± though line structure is suitable for most organizations. Managers of line and staff have authority over their subordinates. Line and structure combines the line structure where information and approvals come from top to bottom. which makes the entire organization a very decentralized one.

The organizational structure would then follow a zonal region structure. The decision making process becomes slower in this type of organizational structure because of the layers and guidelines that are typical to it. and lets not forget the formality involved.Types of Organizational Structure There are different types of organizational structures and a company should choose the one that best suits their needs. The approvals and orders in this kind of structure come from top to bottom in a line. Divisional Structures This is the kind of structure that is based on the different divisions in the organization.
