Cotton String Bag


In Stock


Recycled materials


How many reusable bags do you need in your life? The answer? Well, how long is a piece of string?! You can never have too many.

This cornflower blue, cotton string bag is the reusable bag of all reusable bags, made using recycled cotton and coloured using azo-free dyes. It is a sustainable alternative to a plastic bag for life, helping to reduce your plastic waste and increase your ‘cost per use’. It is surprisingly strong, has got plenty of stretch and can very comfortably carry a basket full of supermarket shopping.

The bag can be scrunched into the side of a cotton hankie so you can live in your pocket, rucksack, handbag, glove compartment without taking up too much space. Why not go all out and get one for all of the above so you never have to use a plastic bag again!

Buy Land Plant Trees

At the core of Chimney Sheep is our Community Interest Company, Buy Land Plant Trees (BLPT). For every purchase you make with us, 20% of the profit facilitates the planting of trees on agriculturally poor land in Cumbria.

We set up BLPT in 2019 as a ‘boots on the ground’ tree planting initiative. The company is run by us and the tree planting is done by us. We do it to help you and us to reduce our impact on the planet. The trees we plant reduce CO2 output as well as contribute to the reduction of flooding and the creation of habitats for wildlife.

BLPT isn’t a tick box exercise nor a distant and detached carbon offset company. In fact, this is as much part of our business as the products we sell and is an integral part of our ethos. We are big believers in the phrase ‘think globally, act locally’ and want to make a genuine difference

Once we had string bags, then plastic ones were around for ages & I feel a little nostalgic to see string ones are back.
