The Never Wasted shopping bag that can be reused in one way or another. Some for fun, some for function, but nothing ever goes into the trash. Not only did this make the idea long-lasting and interactive but also conveyed the message in a fascinating manner. Word spread, footfall increased and the initial production of 3000 bags went on to another 10,000.
Now you may not be royalty, but there is absolutely no reason why you can’t fake it a little. Start by adding some text to this exquisite name plate design. It comes complete with regal lions and a few fancy flourishes. God save the Queen.
