The plastic bag problem is tricky. The effect of single use plastic bags is more about how it litters but is actually lower when it comes to gas emissions from their production. That's why, after many studies, scientists are recommending that the BEST alternative is to reuse the bags you ...already have.

- Reuse bags you already have from previous visits to the shop.
- Don't throw bags away after one use, reuse them!
- Don't buy any more cotton totes, you probably have enough. Use them!
- Use biodegradable bags.
