When talking about materials, one of the most ubiquitous is plastic. You will find plastic at every turn, everywhere you look and everywhere you go. In fact, you can hardly go through a whole day without having to use something made from it. We depend on plastic bags to store our groceries. Lotions, conditioners, and shampoo are always packed up in plastic bottles. It is almost impossible to avoid finding plastic utensils and containers in our takeout bags.

It is true that most plastic items can easily be recycled. However, land-fills are the still most likely destination for these items. The result of this is that our oceans end up being polluted and all of this waste poses a potential threat to sea life. This is one of the reasons that businesses that are conscious of the environment are now employing more innovative alternatives in place of plastic bags for business promotion.

Here are a few plastic bag options that your business can adopt as a marketing tool.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, who is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month, said on Sunday that it was a difficult process to decide whether to undergo a third right-knee surgery after having two last year. But following Wimbledon, where he was "really unhappy" with his performance in reaching the quarterfinals, Federer opted to go through with it.

Federer, who made a late decision to attend this year's Laver Cup in Boston -- a tournament held between teams from Europe and the rest of the world -- said on the sidelines of the event that the recovery and rehabilitation are "going to take me a few more months and then we'll see how things are at some point next year". "The reception I've received, everybody is so upbeat that I'm here. They wish me all the best and they don't even see the crutches. They just want me to be good again and enjoy the weekend," Federer said in an interview for the event with former world No. 1 Jim Courier.

"I've seen some incredible tennis, some great matches and it's been wonderful. I'm really happy I made the trip," the winner of 20 majors was quoted as saying by On why he opted for a third surgery, the tennis ace said, "I was just nowhere near where I wanted to be to play at the top, top level. But I tried my best and at the end... too much is too much. Now I've just got to take it step by step," Federer said.
