Some of you may have seen the Alresford Bag for Life for sale at various retailers and events in and around Alresford.
These fantastic shopping tote style bags are not only environmentally friendly in that they get rid of the need for plastic bags, but they are made of totally biodegradable hessian with a cornstarch lining. These stylish and strong bags are approx 40cm W x 35cm H x 25cm D.
The bags carry an artist’s impression of the historic Georgian town of Alresford; drawn by local resident Mark Tubb, of Forum Publications, alongside the statement ‘Plastic: it’s not my bag!’
These bags are currently available at just £2.50 each from the Naked Grape on West Street and at the Countrymans Show on Sunday 12 September 2010.
Go get yours! Maybe you are a local who would like to support a cleaner, more environmentally friendly Alresford, or maybe you would like to send one to a friend or family member as a memento from a previous visit?
