The Green Party in Ireland and FootprintBag are working on an initiative to supply Footprint Bag’s reusable bags for a community food giveaway project. Taking this action will eradicate the use of plastic bags since the reusable bags are robust enough to handle the weekly task.
As Hanny Wadsworth, co director explained, “The move towards reducing the reliance on plastic bags is gaining momentum, and a project such as this is a step in the right direction. FootprintBags came about due to the lack of a convenient, practical alternative to single use plastic bags. The design aim was to produce a product which wouldn’t sit alongside the other reusable bags which are not ideal, convenient and robust.”
Shoppers (even those with the best intentions) are still struggling with the basic bit – remembering to actually take the bags out with them! Footprint Bag packs makes reusing easy. It is an extremely clever ‘bag within a bag’ system; it has multiple reusable and stylish bags made from super tough parachute material within one compact pack. The bags last indefinitely and the pack easily fits in a glove compartment or handbag. There’s even a handy trolley coin attached too. Everything ready to go in one place. The pack is designed to hang on a trolley, drop down and each pouch holds a readily available fold up bag. Simple!
FootprintBags are available in single, 2, 4, 6 or 8 bag packs in a number of designs, thereby catering for the supermarket shop and convenience shop. With Footprint Bags you never need to pick up another plastic carrier bag and you are guaranteed to look a whole lot more stylish on your shop! Designed by mums for mums.
Our convenient multi-pack meets the real consumer need to find an alternative to plastic bags. FootprintBag packs make re-using stylish and easy.

The use of plastic bags is still very high in the supermarket and convenience shopping trips.
Surely, everyone should have switched to reusable bags by now, but why not?
Our assessment is:
- Reusable Bag ‘mountains’ are being formed because they are not practical, ie: too big to fold up, and more than one bag is required for the shopping trip.
- Size does matter, having a large carrying capacity with hand-friendly handles that don’t dig into your fingers.
- Robust, what is the life expectancy of the bag, after all it as to be durable
- Convenience, how many times have you forgotten your reusable bag?
- Stylish, both men and women shop so a designs that cater for both sexes is paramount

Footprint Bag have been alerted to a shopper who was using Footprint Bags for their convenience shop. The person understood that the Footprint Bag 8 bag pack was initially designed for the supermarket shop, but could not resist the 4 bag pack for convenience shopping. This sounded like a plausible explanation so the person was allowed to go with a smile on their face, as well as having the most stylish, compact, robust reusable bag solution.
