Today, Style Bubble is both shocked and awed that the Anya Hindmarch bags are, apparently, made from plastic. They were manufactured in China, and according to the Evening Standard, they were created in a standard factory that didn't follow Fair Trade procedures. However, I think there's a big "but" here that nobody's addressed. Technically, Anya Hindmarch never said their bags were organic - they simply said they were releasing them to raise awareness of fair trade practices and to reduce the use of plastic bags by women who shop regularly. It's true that the bag is hypocrital, and it's unfortunate that it doesn't follow the standards it wants to set. However, if it's driven hundreds of thousands of women to carry it - or any reusable bag - instead of requesting plastic bags in supermarkets and shoppinging centers, isn't that the whole point? Well, that's really your decision. Is the Not Plastic bag still a force for good? Or has its discovered origins tainted the message? Personally, I haven't used a plastic bag at a supermarket or even a clothing store since I heard about the campaign...
