Friends of the Earth launches its first plastic bag
Friends of the Earth today (1 April 2011) released a new single-use shopping bag, which the organisation says will help protect the environment in Northern Ireland.
The bag uses a revolutionary plant-based polymer, called Ka-Poots, which makes the bag turn to compostable mulch as soon as you unpack your shopping.
This innovative new product costs just 15p per bag.
Every penny will be donated to the Department of the Environment to fund its important work on environmental protection and waste management.
Order a bag now and help protect Northern Ireland's environment.
