ORGANIC carrier bags are being handed out in Liverpool city centre in an attempt to convince shoppers to go green.
The reusable cotton bags bear the slogan â€œPlastic bags are pantsâ€ and are being given away at the 08 Place, in Whitechapel.
Only 50 remain and will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limit of one per person.
Cllr Berni Turner, executive member for the environment, said: â€œIt is important we do as much as we can to reduce the number of plastic bags we use and cotton bags are a great way of encouraging people to become more environmentally friendly.â€
