Cloth bags are making a statement across the world. They are fulfilling a social objective as also an ecological one and are extremely functional. The interesting fact is that it is a movement that is fueled by young citizens. Europe seems to be leading by example. Sit in any square or cafe and indulge in some people watching. You will notice that most people are carrying a cloth bag. This is in addition to the handbag/computer bag/attache case. The bag has the day’s shopping, a bottle of water, a snack maybe. But everyone is carrying one. You could say it is trending.
