August

As plastic bag free July draws to a close how wonderful to see some movement from our large supermarket chains regarding single use plastic bags. I can’t believe it has taken so long!!

I lived in France in the 90’s and single use plastic bags had been phased out many years before, so that a visit to the hypermarche saw shoppers arriving with their baskets and a collection of reusable bags to do their large shop. Of course the use of baskets is very common at the markets and in many village and towns across France. We need to do the same here in Australia!  At 2 duck we are doing our bit!! Our baskets are very strong and do last – so you can shop at the super market or farmers market and carry all your shopping. You may need 2 baskets to fit it in!!   Make the change if you haven’t already and get a basket. Use it, help stop the use of unnecessary plastic.

 

Basket of the Month

 

 Stylish, strong and covered in a layer of jute – with long thick leather handles and leather trim – this basket is great. Perfect for a shopping. Fabulous rustic style!
