Last year in Finland plastic bag was chosen as “the most useless thing of the year”. Same year European Parliament approved a directive that forces shops to limit the use of plastic bags and start charging for them. Every European household consumes in average 200 plastic bags per year. This means that over 8 billion plastic bags ends up to a garbage plant after used only once. Maybe we use some bags from our great collection twice, if we throw our garbage in there. However, 8 billion. And that’s only in Europe.
Showroom Finland encourages people to think about their daily choices. In our collection we have a large, strong and foldable eco bag that packs easily in its own pocket and doesn’t require lot of space. It fits easily in your smaller or bigger bag and in that way is always available when needed. In the supermarket, at the beach or when you’re travelling.
Helsinki bags come in bronze, silver, black and in beloved Moomin-theme in various colours. More stylish, stronger and better for the nature than a plastic bag of your favourite supermarket.
