5p bag tax? – There is an alternative….

coloured plastic bag

All retailers are currently considering the impact on their businesses of the 5p plastic bag tax and June’s hottest topic was whether to go for jute or cotton when ordering branded re-usable bags.  

Cotton caught up with the ever popular jute product in 2015…although jute is still extremely fashionable and a no-brainer when the choice is between that and the ubiquitous plastic bag, cotton seems to be increasing in popularity and versatility. We’ve seen our orders of cotton bags increase by 80% this year already and have therefore increased our size and colour range in order to meet your requests. Take a look at our most recent cotton bags for some inspiration. That said, Jute will always be the most environmentally friendly option, so if this is your top objective, Go Jute!
