With the introduction of the 5p bag charge hitting shops across England, much of the country is in an uproar over the ‘disgrace’. We however, have seen it as an opportunity to break in some new reusable tote bags.
While 5p is a small price to pay, especially given the profit is allocated to charities, avoiding carrier bags is a logical decision less due to the ‘principal’, but to prevent further waste in our landfill.
Now is the time to stock up on stylish tote bags to carry your groceries in future, don’t forget to put some in your bag, or car. Maybe keep them in an allocated place, along with your shopping list!
There are several sites online that allow you to completely customise your own bags, including material and size, as well as placing any design or phrase on them. We have a feeling fashionable totes are going to be the next big thing.
We’ve hand picked a few, ranging from £3 – £15, take a look below!
What do you think of the new law? Are you going to buy plastic or reuse a cool tote?
