  • Being an environmentalist, I always find the bad reputation of plastic bags baffling, an easy target to focus attention away from the over-indulgent and inefficient packaging methods employed by manufacturers and distributors.

    Plastic bags have an incredible strength to weight ratio, adapting to encompass products of various shapes and sizes. However the real beauty of the plastic bag is its versatility and potential for reuse. Whether it be utilised on the next shopping trip. Lining a bin. Or simply used to keep your bum dry on your next cycle trip.
