The reusable shopping bag is becoming the mark of an ethical, environmentally-conscious shopper. The fewer bags you purchase at the counter, the less bags end up cluttering up our rivers, oceans and landfills.
Most of us have re-usable shopping bags – the trick is remembering to use them! A great way to remember your shopping bags is to keep one or two packets neatly twisted up in your handbag (or manbag), or to purchase some long-lasting bags that foldaway into a small, handbag friendly pack. Keep shopping bags in the boot of the car – and if you forget them, purchase a reusable bag at the counter rather than buying brand new disposable ones.
