Introduce Your Mum to Kind Bag… Design-Led Bags Made from Plastic Bottles
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, why not opt for an eco-friendly option this year? Choose a gift that that shows you love her and the planet. Step forward the new Kind Bag … design-led printed shopping bags specially developed to reduce single-use plastic : this is a Mother’s Day gift that both you and your mum can feel good about.
Each Kind Bag recycles six plastic bottles to create one of its super-cool, eco-friendly shopping bags and it’s currently the only reusable bag on the market to use 100% RPET. Its launch collection features twelve contemporary designs, available from www.kindbag.co and priced at just £10. They’re perfect for supermarket shopping, trips to the gym and even to take on holiday. From fruity prints (banana and papaya), to modern (stripy and geometric) through to fun (pacman and boobs – need we say anymore?!), these lightweight, sturdy bags are guaranteed to put a smile on your mum’s face as well as help the environment.
Now here’s the techy bit… each bag is crafted using a process that transforms used plastic bottles into a practical, durable fabric called RPET (Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate). 100% recycled, reusable and can even be recycled again, Kind Bags incorporate super-strong stitching and a wider bottom that can fit the contents of three regular plastic bags (holding up to 20kg). Wide straps ensure Kind Bags won’t dig into the palm of your mum’s hands like conventional plastic bags and allow her to comfortably distribute her shopping weight.
Kind Bag is looking to recycle over 2 million bottles in its first year of trading.
Weighing in at only 50g, each Kind Bag is water resistant and folds into a pouch, making it easy to take with you, wherever you go. Look after your Kind Bag by washing at 30. Every bag is sent in recyclable, letterbox-friendly packaging.
And that’s not all, Kind Bag is working in partnership with Just One Ocean to donate 10% of all profits to help preserve the oceans for future generations. Plus, for every Boobs bag sold, 25p goes to the charity Against Breast Cancer towards funding pioneering research into new treatments.
So, what are you waiting for, shop the collection at www.kindbag.co and ensure your mum feels the love this Mother’s Day!

The removable styling comb accessory also allows for the freedom of single-handed styling to simultaneously smooth and straighten hair, while the comb’s teeth organize and separate the strands to optimize heat distribution and straightening performance. The beveled edges enable you to tame frizz and flyaways close to the roots and prevent crease lines when creating versatile styles with just one tool.
With 4 heat settings up to 227°c and a digital temperature control, the unique Instyler CERASILK Woven Ceramic Styling Iron also boasts a lightweight ergonomic design to give you, straight up, honest styling so you can style with no worries about damaging your hair or its long term health.
Available to buy for £99.99 from www.boots.com, www.amazon.com & www.instyler.co.uk
The fragrance is a new twist on the classic Flower by Kenzo scent (which celebrates its 20thanniversary this year). With top notes of nashi pear and mandarin, the scent still includes Flower by Kenzo’s stable Bulgarian rose at its heart.
