Shopping bags and souvenirs

With New Zealand, and many other countries, reducing or banning the use of single use plastic bags I thought I’d photograph some of my shopping bags.

I often get them as souvenirs when travelling so now when I shop I have good memories of the place they came from. Nothing quite like reliving past travels while getting the groceries.

Here are just some of mine . . . Today whike getting some fruit and veg I was able to remember KL Malaysia, Amsterdam with the large cotton net bag, and Wellington where I bought the small net bags for the fruit and veg section of the supermarket.

Where have you bought them as souvenirs?

  1. Yes, I do the same. Not only great souvenirs, but also a handy shopping bag while traveling around (without having to pack one.)
