I always, always, always carry a shopping bag around with me, I hate the thought of adding another carrier bag to the world and selfishly, my home. Because I use them all the time I like them to be sturdy, good quality and pretty – I see no point in buying a shopping bag I’ll need to throw away after a month.
Doodle Bag allow you take control of just how pretty you want your bag to be. You are able to choose a design or create a design of your choice. They asked me to create my own but because I’m visually inept I opted for their I love…. canvas bags and rather fittingly added ‘charity shops’ in the blank space. Check out my I <3 Charity Shops bag*, couldn’t be a better fit huh?
The design interface is super easy to use, so if you have a creative bone in your body get in there and upload something. The quality is superb and I’m thoroughly pleased with my bag, especially because it seems so sturdy and strong, which is all important when I’m carting home tea sets and mirrors from bootsales and charity shops.
Doodle Bag is run by Bag It Don’t Bin It, a company based in Sheffield with a strong ethical and environmental ethos, they have even been awarded the prestigious Made in Sheffield mark. Rather sweetly they have teamed up with me to offer three lucky readers the item of their choosing (pre-designed or custom) from their website as a prize. Pretty cool huh?
