A message from the curator of baggish news

A message from the curator of baggish news | It's in the bag | Scoop.it

I wanted to find a place to gather the news on plastic bags around the world, after discussions were made in the UK to introduce a bag tax - this often gets reported under the tag #plasticbagtax. Once I started gathering the news I realised how many areas throughout the world are going through a similar process or at least talking about it. In addition I sell some lovely bags designed by me or in collaboration and thought this would be a great place to present them

So, out with the old bags and in with the new longlasting strong and beautiful bags from Project Isabella Graphic Workshop.
