Our friends at Bags of Change - those lovely people who make gorgeous ethical shopping bags - have won the Most Innovative Green Product in the Green England Awards for their loyalty-scheme-in-a-bag service. People who shop in selected retailers using their Bags of Change carrier receive a discount (5% at the So Organic Greenwich store!). Why? Because those of us who are working to protect our planet by not contributing to plastic creation and waste deserve a little treat for ethical actions!

Faith Simpson, who started the green bag company with her business partner said of winning the award "we are delighted that Bags of Change has won a Green England Award for the second year running... a big thank you to everyone who voted for us!"

The Green England Awards are all about celebrating innovative green and ethical products made by eco conscious organisations. They select companies that have demonstrated their commitment to the planet, provide quality products and excellent service. The public then vote for those who they believe best meet this green criteria.
