Sustainable Shopping? It’s in the Bag.

Submitted by on September 1, 2013 – 12:58 pm3 Comments

How do you carry those heavy groceries home from the shops? Consumers are increasingly aware that disposable plastic bags cause a global environmental problem. Each year in the UK nine billion plastic bags clog up landfill and impact drastically on our wildlife. That’s why more and more shoppers are choosing to switch to greener alternatives.

Help us to reduce the environmental impact of throw-away carrier bags by choosing long lasting, reusable Suma shopping bags. Thanks to their sustainable materials and long lifespan, they don’t cost the earth.

Suma bags are sustainable, 100% recyclable and tough enough to be used time and time again. They feature a new design, a new lower price but the same great quality you’d expect.

An environmentally friendly choice with style!
