sustainable stretch bag replaces plastic grocery bags
Artecnica, the cutting-edge group behind Design w/Conscience, has teamed with ad agency TBWA to produce a paper bag made from recycled billboards. There’s no glue or stitches—just a clever die cut that creates a 3-D design inspired by nature and strong enough to hold 33 pounds. One side is white, other colors vary, and no two are exactly alike.The Stretch Bag sells for $17 and arrives in early October, but you can pre-order now @ charlesandmarie.com. great thinking! it would be wonderful to offer these as an alternative to nasty plastic grocery bags.
