Following a previous post about packaging a great deal of comments and new findings has made it very clear that a lot of people are concerned with this issue. Last week a friend of mine brought my attention to a new shop in Germany called Unverpackt, a supermarket without packaging where you simply bring your own containers and refill them -like in the old days! Looking further in to this I found that ZeroWasteEurope has a great round up article about different shops in Europe that follows this concept, and it made me wish that everyone could have access to one! -would it not be great if we all could go shopping without buying all the scrappy plastic!? With all this in mind and fuelled by a comment from Angelique (who now lives in Germany and buys at farmers markets) I started thinking about shopping bags! Despite bringing our own containers we would still need to carry our groceries home right!?! So to stay in tune with the whole ecological design idea I came up with these tea-towel grocery bags which have recycled leather belt handles; -which are strong and sturdy with a minimal impact on the environment, as all the materials already exists. So could they be something we could use?
