Retailers officially just miss the plastic bag target: Help out with our Top 10 alternative carriers
July 17, 2009 by Maria Kaski
Although 346million fewer plastic bags are being used monthly than 2006, seven supermarkets that aimed to cut the number of carrier bags given out by 50% have just missed the target, with a reduction of 48%. Give them and the environment a helping hand, and always keep a roomy tote on you when you plan on hitting the shops. Maria Kaski picks the top ten plastic bag alternatives.

It’s not often you find a bag that doubles up as a tank top, but this tote from Brazilian designers Da-Lata does just that. Made using recycled ring pulls, this is an ultra modern bag for the most eccentric urban amongst us.
