Savings: You can save about 100 euros a year by not buying two plastic bags four times a week. That’s enough to buy a really great reusable bag for long-term use!

Remember this: It’s easy to forget your bags at home and people often make unplanned shopping trips. It’s a good idea to keep a reusable bag in your purse, pocket, car, laptop bag or at your workplace.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Using your own shopping bag five times a week can reduce your carbon footprint slightly.
