New Place Branded jute shopping bags for Enniskillen and Omagh
25th November 2021
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has launched new Jute shopping bags displaying the place brands for Enniskillen and Omagh – ‘Enniskillen Island Town – Naturally Welcoming’ and ‘Inspired by Omagh, The Heart of Tyrone’.
The bags are made from reusable material which will help local businesses and customers shop more sustainably and make a conscious effort to reduce reliance on plastic bags.
Speaking about the new bags, the Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Errol Thompson said;
“The place branded Jute Bags perfectly capture the essence of Enniskillen and Omagh while also promoting the two towns. The Jute bags also promote sustainability which we as a Council are very keen to support as part of our Climate Change and Sustainable Development Strategy: Restore, Revive, Thrive – Our Environment.
Customers will be encouraged to make a more conscious effort to avoid single-use plastic like plastic bags while shopping and instead opt for the reusable option with the new Jute Bags.”
The new place branded Jute shopping bags will be distributed to local businesses in each town and will also be distributed to shoppers at town centre events throughout the Christmas period.
