From 5th October 2015 all major retailers will have to charge 5p ( at least) for each non reusable carrier bag they give to customers. The good news about this is that the money they charge has to be donated to a good cause or charity.
The bad news is if you are like us you will probably forget to take those bulky reusable bags out with you and end up having to pay the 5p or more! So we have found this super cute folding Doggie Shopping Bag which will fit in your handbag and can be used again and again and again.
The bag folds up into a cute doggie shape, and when the bag is in use the doggie sits at the bottom of the bag on the outside, looking like he is keeping an eye on your shopping. Made from Polyester the shopping bag is sturdy and can be used again and again.
We thought that the doggie shape would appeal to our customers and they are selling like hot cakes in our shop at the moment, as an extra little incentive we will have them on sale at a reduced price of £3.99 until the 31st October. After that they will be at the normal price of £4.49.
You can buy them on our website too now so why not stock up for friends and family, they would make a great little stocking filler present.
The rule on charging does not apply to small businesses but as an extra little incentive to our customers we will be donating 5p to Moorlands Dog rescue for every customer who does not require one of our paper carrier bags when they shop at Dougal's Den between the 5th and the 31st October.
Oh and just think of how many more dog treats you can buy with all those pennies you save!
