I have to admit it took us a while to come to terms with 5p plastic bags tax. The media was full of stories about trolley thefts, increased production of shopping baskets or fierce arguments between shoppers and cashiers. If you still find this law difficult to digest why not set yourself up for a Cotton Bag Challenge. Very simple task indeed – get a reusable cotton shopping bag.
Here at Cotton Barons, we have been using Cotton Bags since the late ’90s and we cannot imagine packing our goods in plastic carrier bags. Just think about the capacity and durability of the fabric. It also protects your purchased items from breakage and it’s convenient to carry around. And for the fashionistas out there you can perfectly cooperate your cotton bags with your outfit.
Personally, I prefer folding my bags and storing them in my kitchen cupboard than binning another plastic bag.
Why not try it yourself.
