Now, I’m not really into the whole ‘Lent’ thang, but I am going to challenge myself to give up plastic bags for 40 days…. and then obvs continue after that! I expect that like me, you have a cupboard full of ‘Bags for Life’ and other plastic ones from here and there that just creep insidiously into your life even if you try really hard not to let them.
So – give it a go – make sure you always have a few bags in the car or maybe in your handbag, so that when that emergency shopping trip happens to, you are ready and armed. Or if you haven’t got a bag with you and you find yourself at the till being offered another plastic bag – be strong – say no. Ask if they have a box you can use, or Go Commando and stack it up and rush to your car/bike/skateboard or pony and trap – see how you get on….. Make sure this isn’t an egg buying trip tho!
If you fancy replacing a plastic bag with a unique cloth bag then here is a selection of bespoke designs hand printed on cloth bags that Faye Dobinson and I made recently – get in touch if you would like more details.
