of yesteryear. They are now available in a plethora of materials
and fabrics. Jute, plastic, denim, rayon, leather; name it and
you can have it! Shoulder bags, burlap bags, gym bags, handbags,
backpacks ? the variety is a little overwhelming! Among all
the different kinds of bags available, cloth bags are the most
trendy as well as efficient. Plastic bags may look good too,
but they are not environment friendly. It is tricky to recycle
plastic, thereby hampering the environment. Cloth bags on the
other hand, pose no problem in this regard. Apart from being
eco-friendly, the range of fabrics that one can choose from
is absolutely amazing!

Project - Did you know that there is a project titled
the ?Cloth Bag Project? in the country of New Zealand This projects
aims to spread awareness among the people about protecting their
environment to enable it to remain lush and green. As an aside,

and comparatively less crowded country should aim to keep its

protected. Picture a waste dump rotting and emanating sickening
smells flourishing among the green grass meadows of this country!
Just thinking about gives one the shudders! This project is
a commendable step taken by some of the supermarket chains in
the country. Closer home, in India too, if I recollect correctly,
supermarkets had ceased to provide plastic bags to customers,
supplying them with brown paper bags instead! Sadly enough,
the trend did not last long enough to make any noteworthy difference!
Paper, as you may know, is easily recyclable, and would have
been an ideal substitute for harmful plastic!

accessory, in addition to jeans, skirts and other clothes. There
are shoes made of denim, belts made of denim and what have you!
Denim bags stand out as a distinctive category in this melee.
Denim has a timeless value. How many of us haven?t thrown out
our favorite pair of jeans, even though they may be eons old
I would hazard a confident guess and say close to none! Imagine
having the same option with your bag! I mean, the older it got,
the trendier it would look! Possessing a denim bag offers a
wide range of possibilities. You can add your own personal touch
to it by adding sequins, a logo, your name, or anything else
you can possibly think of. Oh yes, possessing is the correct
word! Ask any woman what her bag means to her and you will know
what exactly I?m talking about! Bags are no less than a passion
for most women nowadays, coming second maybe only to shoes!
To make matters simpler, denim is now available in an astonishing
range of colors. Gone are the days when blue was the quintessential
denim shade. Black, green, gray, white and even pink and the
like are in abundance these days!
