Plastic bags were developed as an alternative to paper bags, as deforestation for bags has become a huge problem for Sweden’s nature and its forests.⁣
Plastic bags turned out to be much stronger, waterproof, lighter than paper bags, and reusable. It never occurred to Sten Gustaf Thulin, the creator of these bags, that people would just dispose of them. But plastic was so cheap that it just became disposable. Disposable plastics is now a major threat to our seas and oceans. It is estimated that in 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans…

Let’s make a change. Even in small steps, going easy. There are now many alternatives for disposable plastics: organic cotton reusable shopping bags, metal straws, bees wax food wraps, bamboo toothbrushes, and many other. There are over 2000 of you in our Pack from nature Instagram page which means you care, and if everyone of us gives up disposable plastic every day, it will be 2000 less of them daily. Small steps – big achievements, for the only home of all of us – our Earth!
