How do you fancy being the proud owner of something that is unique, functional and will help you reduce your landfill waste?
Back in February we launched a competition to win a ReSACKel reusable shopping bag. The response was amazing and the winners loved their prizes!
As you may remember, Brian Pemberton, the green entrepreneur behind ReSACKel is a man on a mission to solve the world’s looming waste crisis.
Brian takes used rice sacks from China and refashions them into reusable and unique grocery bags. The sacks are reused, not recycled, so all the original designs from the sacks remain. This means every bag is unique and hand crafted.
We’ve been using these bags ourselves and have discovered the following funky attributes:
1- They are strong (originally designed to carry 25kgs rice!)
2- Sturdy base means they stand up at the checkout for easy packing
3- Wipe clean
4- Comfortable handles
5- Compact when folded up
In addition these ReSACKel reusable shopping bags:
1- Are unique
2- Are functional
3- Are environmentally friendly because they have been reused
4- Make a fashion statement
5- Are available exclusively to My zero waste readers at the moment!
Two great reasons
- We believe in the product. Brian is doing his bit for the environment, working on an issue that is close to our hearts and operates an ethical business.
- Our server is reaching its maximum capacity thanks to all the wonderful people we have visiting the site and we need to upgrade!
Anyone who runs a non-profit website will appreciate that this all costs money. We have had numerous people contacting us to inform us that the site has crashed or pages cannot load. With your support you can help us upgrade our server for a better online experience.
Instead of asking for donations or covering the site with adverts, we decided we would like to give you the opportunity to purchase something that will provide you with value and encourage you to reduce your waste.
We have a limited supply of these bags and as the saying goes ‘When they’re gone, they’re gone.’ So you need to be quick to secure your order.
You will receive 3 ReSACKel reusable shopping bags sent to your UK address. We’re afraid you can’t choose your designs, but you will get three different designs, chosen randomly from the six shown on this page.
How you will benefit
These bags are not yet available in the UK, except through us; so this is your chance to get something exclusive to proudly swing around at your nearest checkout; or wherever it is you like to proudly swing things about.
You’ll be the proud owner of three unique reusable shopping bags AND you’ll have a warm glow in your heart from helping reduce landfill waste and helping us to provide you with a better service.
How we benefit
We share in the warm glow feeling by supporting Brian and helping you to keep things out of the landfill. We’ll be able to upgrade our servers so that the site runs faster, which means we can bring you more of the stuff you love.
In exchange for 3 reusable bags, delivered to you in a recycled polythene bag, fresh to your door, we are asking £16.
