The cause

A trillion plastic bags are used around the world each year. According to Waste Management, only 1% of plastic bags are returned for recycling. Up to 80% of ocean plastic pollution enters the ocean from land. 100 000 marine animals are killed by plastic bags annually. Plastic bags are used for an average of 12 minutes. It takes 500 (or more) years to degrade in a landfill. Add these numbers up, and you get an environmental crisis.

The Task

Make the world's coolest shopping bag of your own, and use it proudly for every shopping.

  1. Sew a canvas bag
  2. Collect a lot of colorful dye, airbrush or anything colorful that you can use to paint the canvas bag
  3. Paint it fully in happy Sziget style, with a Sziget logo on it
  4. When it's done, bring it with yourself when you go shopping, every single day. Then you can avoid buying plastic bags unnecessarily every time you are in a supermarket.
  5. Send a photo of one of you carrying your daily groceries in the new Sziget bag + a video about how did you create the bag
