The Diary of a Contemporary Fashionista

The designer behind the ambitious project: Anya Hindmarch. The aim: To spur awareness and debate on environmental issues concerning the usage of plastic bags.

tried to do our bit by increasing awareness of the issue of plastic bags and making reusable bags fashionable when we launched I Not A Plastic Bag last year. Whole Foods Market were very supportive of this project. Let hope other supermarkets follow the example that they have set and ban the use of plastic bags in their stores (Anya)

However, the bag which was intended to be a simple reusable bag with profits going to an environmental group, has become a sougt after accessory among many women. tommy hilfiger uk The bags, which were produced in limited edition, were sold out in no time.

The question of whether the ones who are craveing this bag are environmentalists, is still not quite clear to me.

We have to wait a year or a month to see idea in itself is great. Itencouragesone to conserve and to be responsible while also being fashionable. There is also the possibility that tommy hilfiger uk it might reach out to consumers who otherwise had not given much thought to the environmental problems that are facing us today. I really hope that this whole project will tommy hilfiger uk turn out into something more substantial (and maybe even change consumer behavior) than just the latest look. After all, there areplentyof alternative reusable canvas bags (a tommy hilfiger uk lthough, they are not nearly as fashionable as the this one).

At least the main message is clear: Stop using plastic bags!

Break the habit
