morsbags are a great, subversive idea to fight the damage plastic bags cause to the environment, by replacing them with cloth bags made by ‘pods’ of people and given away to shoppers.
let’s do something positive to reduce the hideous number of plastic bags being used – 1 million are consumed per minute globally – of which hundreds of thousands end up in the oceans.
the idea is to get together with people in your local community, drink wine and make reusable cloth bags (from old duvet covers, curtains from charity shops etc) and hand them out to the unsuspecting public for free on specified dates outside different supermarkets.
meet new people, do something marvellous for the planet and beat other pods (groups) of baggers with your morsbag tally.
go to www.morsbags.com to be a part of a wonderful thing!
p.s. non-commercial/ non-profitable – just full of beneficial things for everyone, especially whales!
There’s a list of existing ‘pods’ on the morsbags web site – or you could start your own!
