In an attempt to make using plastic bags a less appealing option – creative agency Mother, have designed a carrier bag that will make you think twice about whether you really need one.
Available in four flavors – robber, junkie, sex addict and terrorist – the bags force your to consider whether the stares and judgement of the general public are a price worth paying for a plastic bag.
This is the agency’s second range of bags designed to put people off – their first was called Uncarriable Bags and launched back in 2005. It featured motifs such as a sperm bank clinic, Texas gay republicans, and fried dolphins.
While the designs themselves are light-hearted and often amusing, they address an underlying problem that has real-world implications.
