Eco-Chico: I'm Not A Plastic Bag


Call it Al Gore's "A Convenient Truth." Call it Stella McCartney's Eco/Vegan-conscious luxury line of ready-to-wear and skincare. Whatever the catalyst, global awareness is one of the most important (not to mention the trendiest) causes in our media-seeped culture.

Although shopping may help the economy (and give a much needed boost to a lazy Wednesday afternoon,) those shopping bags that we so easily amass may not be helping us out as much as we think. Trashed shopping bags fill a huge amount of land a year, and take thousands of years to biodegrade. I am no super eco-freako(props to those who are! I admire your resolve!), yet it just makes my stomach turn over to think that my little impulse buy could possibly lead to another notch against our beautiful world.

Therefore, it's no surprise that the tongue-in-"chic" canvas "I'm Not A Plastic Bag" by Anya Hindmarch is one of the hottest It bags across the world. This bag is encouraged to replace those irksome plastic baggies as the new shopping bag. Even though this is a great option, it would also make a great school or beach tote, and garner attention with its graphic lettering and nautical colors. Yet the icing is truly the price, and at only $15 a pop these bags are a no-brainer.

This It Bag is so hot, it sold out shortly in the UK as a special limited edition piece. Thankfully, fans begged and now a beautiful USA creme and navy edition will be available stateside this summer.

It most certainly is not a plastic bag. It is a little way to add style to your day, and a little love to the world

It doesn’t really matter where it’s made, or what it’s made out of… The point is, people who like this bag will want to use it and that in itself can reduce the consumption of plastic bags.
The goal wasn’t to diminish child labor or cheap labor in China.

If people like this bag and decide to use it as an alternative to plastic shopping bags, then the message and goal is effective.

People who want this bag know its intended purpose and ultimately it’s a personal choice to stop using plastic or not. The bag itself doesn’t make a difference, it’s the attitude people adopt.

The message is boldly imprinted on the bag so it’s promoting awareness and a 2nd look at things.
Like if you bring it to a supermarket where everyone is packing their stuff in plastic, they might think twice next time.

----BTW, don't be fooled by the price drop of these bags on ebay, there are tons of fakes out there, over half of them are sold from China now. Beware of the lack of pictures, new sellers with little or no feedback!!!
