Just to remind you how good string bags are – if you cant be bothered knitting them you can always buy them
So I invested in some cotton string bags. I have been using ( and reusing) them for months now and they are great. When empty, they fold up really small, but they can carry a ludicrous amount of shopping.
They have many good points;
Their soft handles do not cut into my fingers,
They are fully biodegradable
They are fair-traded
Last for ever – my bags are still going strong
Carry loads when full but are small when empty
I bought mine from Organic Ally”
She sells bags with either long or short handles.
The short handles are great for supermarket runs, the long handled bags can be hung off your shoulder for more leisurely shopping – I don’t like them as much as the short.
