Eco Shopping

From kitchen wares to garden utensils, from clothes to shoes and lots more besides - we're all being encouraged to think of shopping for environmentally friendly goods. Online you can search for it all - or so it seems and for when you go shopping in 'the real world' you can even buy an eco bag to bring it all home in!

I had never heard of eco bags until recently. Sounds a little baffling? Perhaps ... but the truth is very simple. Instead of using those horrible, flimsy plastic bags you just buy a hard-wearing and fairly sizeable bag that you can use over and over.

Here's a super cotton eco bag that's cheap but practical - and what's more it has a super 'eco' message ...

"The earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth".
