Bonkers paper rucksacks

PaperucksacksBear with me on this one - it's not as dumb as it first sounds. The bag you see modelled on the left is a paper rucksack designed for light loads and those times you want to take stuff out - food, par example - and dispense with the bag. It's made from recycled paper that can be recylced again or chucked somewhere to rot (check this composter and this wormery).  Personally, try as I might, I still end up with reams of plastic bags that serve the same purpose. If you've managed to kick the plastic habit and fancy a greener disposable bag, however, snap up ten for £3 on Paper Rucksacks' website. [thanks, Katie]

Cloth/canvas bags are the way forward! They sell them in every shop and market in Germany, and you can get them here, too (Oxfam was selling them for a while). You can fold one and keep it in your everyday bag for impromptu shopping, they bear weight better than plastic ones, you can sling them over your shoulder for ease and comfort...I haven't used a supermarket plastic bag for ages!
