Think outside the bag!

No no this is not about those damn eco friendly green bags. Serious overload on that. Great effort going green with non-plastic but I have way too many fabric-nylon-don’t-know-what-crap biodegradable bags. “Going Green” is just a marketing tag to make us feel guilty, spend money buying “green bags” and then charge us more per plastic bag – can someone say “GOTCHA!”. What a rip! Moving away from that great green scam, I’d like to bring some attention to creative branding and marketing on the otherwise mundane paper bags we’re used to seeing.

*By the way, it’s only biodegradable if its made of Cotton, Hemp or Jute. See, you learn something new everyday.

Sure there are more worthy bags to make mention, like fashion handbags strutting the streets from Milan to Miami – with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Rihanna of course. Ladies and gentle gays, exhibit A and B for your kind reference.

That Karl ah, always willing to take a piss at himself, with style of course. Respect. With a capital R for rah rah.

Rihanna is SO punk chic! I’d like that bag very much thanks!

BUT as I said, I’m talking about the more creative ‘out of the bag’ ideas that’s roaming the streets. With no further ado or mindless descriptions and side notes, here’s some genius marketing extracted from Enjoy!

So there you have it. Some are a tad explicit *eyes above* BUT boy it takes guts. I hope to work for a company that allows free flow of creative velocity resembling the ever shock arousing controversy that is Madam GA-GA. For now, I look on in envy and will spend my better days blogging about it.
