Good bye plastic bac, hello cloth bag!

Passing through the Brevedent during our Tour de France, we discover with joy the great good practices they have implemented.

The problematic : the campsite has a grocery where customers can buy the local products, hygienic products, the essentials for camping, etc. And for carrying all this, they do need a container. Hundreds of platic bags were given out every day.

Commited to the environnement protection, they looked after a solution not to use those containers anymore, origin of a lot of pollution, from their production to their elimination (greenhouse gas emission, over 400 years for the degradation, desctruction of the biodiversity,…).

And bingo ! The solution : cloth bags, pressed “Le Brevedent”.

In addition of being a lot more ecological than plastic bags, it is a nice souvenir to bring home that you can keep several years to go shoping, go to work, or bring back the drill that you borrowed last week from you neighbour.
