Baggu makes the plastic-free movement easy with sassy shopping bags
In case you’ve been living under a rock (come out, it’s nice up here) then you’ll be acutely aware that from July 1, plastic shopping bags will be banned in Queensland. Yep, it’s a huge high-five for the environment and we’re pretty delighted that this movement is finally coming into play. If you’re not already on the reusable-bag wagon or you want to add some sass to your less-than-appealing stash of hessian bags, then take a look at the vibrant collection from Baggu.
Baggu’s series of reusable shopping bags are not only a functional alternative to planet-harming single-use plastic bags, they also look goddamn fabulous. They are made from nylon and are designed to be the same shape as a regular shopping bags – but they are far stronger and hold 2-3 times more volume than regular plastic bags. Plus, they fold back down into a little pouch when you’re done and are machine washable.
Technical and functional stuff aside, the Baggu bags also come in a wide variety of colours and prints, from sailor stripes to disco dots and even a cute Dalmatian dog print. With an estimated one billion lightweight plastic shopping bags used in Queensland each year – which can take up to 1000 years to fully decompose – now it’s finally time to make a difference. Luckily, we can do it in style. Baggu bags are available in Australia online through Sunday Tracker.
