Loaner Bags

Designed to help rid the town of plastic shopping bags, the Loaner Bag is a free re-usable shopping bag that can be either re-used by the shopper or returned to the retailer they got it from (hence “loaner”), to be used by the next customer. The Loaner Bag concept was thought up to overcome people’s tendency to collect re-usable bags, storing them behind the fridge or in the boot of the car.

Making your own loaner bag is now as relevant as ever with the introduction of a ban on free, low quality plastic bags in the Northern Territory from 1 September 2011.
