Just want to try and be current about Global warming! Re-useable shopping bags are increasing in their use which is better news for the environment. Its nice to put some thought, effort and detail even into something as simple as this to perhaps encourage the owner to use it over and over again with minimum impact on our surroundings.
This folding bag I made for my mother in law when she came from England to visit us. In the UK some shopping malls like M&S charge a small amount for plastic bags. It's not much but they just want people to decrease the use of plastic bags and collect points by using their own re-useable bags. I hope to see this one day in Thailand. I think we use way too many plastic bags!
This fold away bag has some style when folded up so it's no great shakes to carry it as an accessory until it comes time to fill it with shopping. The decorated panel is simply attached to a carry bag of your choice and will contain the folded bag neatly until time to use it.
