If you still need a bit more convincing to give up plastic bags, have a look at this recent campaign and stock up on cheap home made shopping bags at the winter fair.


  1. hopefully we will have a few cloth bags for sale at the winter fair and people can say “NO” to plastic bags at Wardells…!!

  2. They get tangled up in all sorts of things dont they and they shrivel up in the sun and get blown away as plastic dust by the wind…they are a perception of need courtesy of the plastic (petro-chemical) industry making anything they can to sell more carbon and more crap to carry more crap also wrapped in plastic and stuff that we never really needed. And we line our ‘rubbish’ bins win them so that the rubbish bin doe’nt get ‘dirrty’ have a think about that…I have picked up literally thousands in the commons as others have…we live in this so called age of ‘climate change’ yet we are still tangled up in the bag blues….re-using cardboard boxes is sensible as it can be used in the garden (composting/mulching) or for kindling for the fire….taking a shopping basic is amazingly simple as well and when its full we can be reminded that we probably dont need anymore….

    Yes, the plastic bags on offer at the shops have had their day, far more practical and green solutions are happening and more are on their way.

  3. Yes I’ve picked up several big stock food bags full of plastic bags from the commons, before Mario lamb tries to eat them. It’s a waste of time, energy, resources, everything. No need whatsoever.
