The saying ‘you old bag’ is about to take on a whole new meaning.
You know all those plastic bags they’ve been handing out for free at supermarkets for years and years? It’s about to stop. Unless, of course, you want to shell out 5p per bag.

How can you prepare yourself? Purchase a reusable shopping bag that’s durable, convenient and reliable. Here are some suggestions.
This clever Reisenthel Minimax Collapsible Shopping Basket transforms easily from flat to a reinforced shopping basket. This is great if you’re purchasing delicate groceries and don’t want them to get mashed in a loose bag.
