This foldable organic cotton shoulder bag is ideal for holding your groceries or just using around down. With no seams, it can hold a lot of weight and is sold in many colours (deep blue, glacier blue, coral pink, charcoal grey or purple). Then just fold it into its in-built pouch.
Recent research has found that supermarket ‘bags for life’ are more like ‘bags for a week’, as they don’t last that long. And most also don’t fold down like this one, so you are less likely to keep it handy in your bag or glovebox. A report found that the carbon footprint of one of the supermarket ‘thicker plastic bags’ is not much better.
About the Maker
Whales Bags makes these lovely bags, to try to reduce the use of single-use plastic. They are passionate about whales and dolphins, and want to prevent plastic going into the oceans. The company does also make ‘Whale Tread’ flops. However these contain recycled tyres, so keep them for garden use. If you are the beach, it’s best to use Waves Flops (100% rubber, with no plastic). So no harm done, if one gets lost in a wave.
