The Japanese Ministry of Environment is trying to encourage usage of furoshiki to reduce paper/plastic bag waste. They've done a "how-to" guide that's also available via PDF.

I was surfing and came across this link, but I thought I would post and revive it!

I use the first one nearly every day. I prefer furoshiki to drawstring bags.

This has me thinking that I can throw a couple of bandanas in my purse. I never wind up carrying the reusable bags when I buy them. The watermelon tie & hand carry tie might change that.

Thanks for the revival, Pavlina! I might've miss this topic if not for you.

I bought a bandana a few weeks back and have been thinking about how to use it right... now I know... and thanks virago, for the wonderful link. :)

If I could figure out a way to roll up four sodas and two bottles of water with by boyfriend's bento box in a furoshiki, I'd do it ;) Until then, he's getting recycled grocery store bags.
