Italy Takes on Plastic Bags

Porta_la_sporta1240310462 Last week, our company founder Vincent Cobb received an email from Silvia Ricci, the founder of an Italian non-profit campaign called Porta la Sporta (Bring your Bag). Inspired by Rebecca Hosking's actions in Modbury UK, Silvia is determined to make fellow Italians wake up to the "plastic plague." On their newly-launched site you'll find our Plastic Bag Counter (in Italian!) as well as the latest news from Italy's fight to reduce senseless consumption of use-and-toss items.

We'd like to wish Porta la Sporta the best of luck, and please - if you're taking action in your city, state or country to reduce plastic bag and bottle waste - let us know!
