Duffel bags are named after a town of Duffel, Belgium, where they were first made.

Luther Crowell invented the paper bag in 1867.

The first shopping bag with handles was invented in 1918 by Walter Deubener.

Swedish packaging company Celloplast patented the plastic bag in 1965.

To cancel out the negative environmental impact of one plastic bag, a cotton bag would need to be reused each day for a year.
