With single use plastic now either being banned (bye bye plastic bags, straws and cups!) or phased out, this is the perfect opportunity to look and see where we can reduce our individual impact on the environment through our consumer choices. This is an issue LinenBarn is so passionate about! With every purchase of LinenBarn’s gorgeous certified European linen tote bag, you can have full confidence that the linen products live up to their ethos – they are kind to the planet through their production, OEKO-TEX® certified, are hardwearing and best of all – compostable!
Yes, that’s right, worms love it! When the tote reaches the end of its life, it doesn’t need to rot in a landfill as Linenbarn’s totes are made from natural fibers and are chemical free.
But back to the greener choices in our daily shopping… Supermarket plastic shopping bags can be reused and when they’re ready to cross the plastic rainbow bridge, simply take them to the soft plastics bin at the front of your local supermarket to be recycled. You can slowly work on building up your collection of linen market bags over time while you’re wearing down your plastic ones.
We are all in this together and every step is valuable – don’t be hard on yourself if you don’t have it all perfect, it takes time to adapt, so start where it feels most comfortable.
LinenBarn’s totes come in 5 gorgeous colours and can be purchased from the online shop at the price of $46.95 per bag.
