    The world is full of bags of various kinds – plastic bags, canvas bags, paper bags, etc. – all of which have their own purpose. We move objects from one place to the other on a daily basis for work, leisure, hobbies, celebrations, special events and a range of other purposes. We rarely spare a moment’s thought for how important bags, and their suitability for the purpose in question, really are. In September, we discussed this issue with Finnish consumers.
