Stocking Up For Christmas...?

We're all getting the hang of taking our reusable bags to the supermarket for grocery shopping... This year, let's think outside the aisle and do our Christmas stocking with re-usable bags. Santa takes a re-usable sack and so can we!

It's easy to keep your bags on ya, with Onya Bags, Planet Ark's most recently endorsed product. They squash into a pouch, and attach to your keyring, backpack or handbag with a carabiner.

Onya Bags are each made, on average, from the equivalent of 2 x 600ml recycled PET plastic bottles*. The toggles and carabiners on Onya Bags are made from recycled materials too. These handy re-usable bags transform from key-ring pouch to shopping bag in seconds.

For the cost of a few PET bottles you could buy yourself, or a friend, a stylish and practical reusable bag. That's how you can take two plastic bottles out of the waste stream and then continue to reduce plastic waste by reusing the bag again and again. It's one of those rare gifts that just keeps on giving.

* This is an average figure, Onya Bags (products.planetark.org/paproducts/onyabags.cfm) range in size from backpacks to bags and dispensers of biodegradable doggie doo-doo bags. Onya Weigh bags don't include recycled PET (yet), but the folk at Onya are working on it. Onya Weigh are one of the few re-usable fruit and veg bags available.
