As part of fairtrade fortnight these people will send you a free jute shopping bag if you send in 10 plastic carrier bags for their 'Big Swap.'

Although I try and have a cotton bag on me at all times sometimes I get caught out so I think I can rustle up 10 bags and partake of their generous offer.

All the plastic bags sent in get recycled as well BTW.  Win win I reckon.  Ok   All they ask is that you register your swap on line at their 'swap-o-meter' here so they can see how well they do.

Hmm... dilemma time, I use my plastic bags (from my stock) to line my rubbish bin and then put that out for collection instead of the big black bag.  I'll have to see how many I have.  Thanks for the link BTW. WellDone

I'll try that again!

What a great idea! Thanks for the link, Ruth. I hope we can rustle up 10 carrier bags. Star

Recently, I always buy one of those long life bags for 0.10p or so, rather than bring home yet more carrier bags. Those heavy duty bags are actually really useful about the house - far more so than the flimsy carrier bags.
