The world needs to “be more green”, which doesn’t mean “be boring”, like so many people think. How can it be boring, when we are able do our shopping in exciting bags like these, instead of the uncreative, ugly and environmentally unfriendly plastic store bag. Here in France, we don’t receive plastic bags at the counter, but can buy a “green” bag for a few centimes and it can be used again and again. At some stores your old worn out bag can be exchanged for a new one. If you find the bag at the store isn’t colourful enough for you, walk just around the corner and you can pick and choose bags to you heart’s delight….found anywhere and everywhere. Baskets, funky bags, sturdy bags, recycled bags, fabric bags, cheap bags, expensive bags, bags on wheels.

Buy a bag and have fun shopping. Buy a bag and be a funky shopper. Buy a bag and save our planet from destructive plastic.

…colour me beautiful…

…a helping hand…

…across continents…

…bag on a kebab…

  1. ooh la la! meer as een gunsteling op hierdie sosaties van jou! as ek kon kies…mmmmmm Ja enigeen met franse woorde! hoe ken jy my dan!


  2. Those are such beautiful bags, Ronelle. I have seen a stall on Hermanus’s market where they sell these.


  3. these are beautiful ronnell, i did some reusable bags too out of flour sacks before. you see two years ago i organized a group of jobless dressmaker in the shanty town of cavite (in philippines during my vacation there). and we started collecting flour sacks from bakeshops and made some environmental friendly bags.. i think its really high time people should be involve and think of our environment.

    have a pleasant day ronell!


  4. I love the bags – they’re so colourful – you’re right – who wouldn’t love to go shopping with those.


  5. The bags are so wonderful. I wish we could get them here. and the daisies? Perfect.

    I read you post the other night, and today I visited one of my fav shops. They have just received a shipment of shopping bags from Morocco, woven from grass, smelling delicious, and just like the last one on the line in the last pic. I recognised them immediately and bought two.


  6. What a great selection! I carry reusable bags in my car, but I have to admit, I often forget to take them into the store…
