POSCH – Reusable shopping bags

Home

Posch-Cornfield1

Designer Luce Beaulieu of Montreal, Canada designs a product line called POSCH which are reusable shopping bags made from vintage bedsheets and pillowcases. The bags come in two models, one is a handbag and the other is an adjustable shoulder strap back that can allow for up to 40 lbs of groceries to be carried comfortably. The environmentally conscious Luce won an Honorable Mention with the designs at “Closing the Loop”, Canada’s first Sustainable Design competition.

From the Sustainable Design site, “On average, it takes four trips to the supermarket for a family to accumulate 60 plastic bags that will be buried in landfills and pollute the earth and water for 500 years before they finally decompose. Throughout their lifecycle, plastic bags are one of the worst offenders in terms of greenhouse gas emissions.
