After the hype (and backlash) of Anya Hindmarch's 'I'm not a plastic bag' bag. Many fair-trade and other do-gooder bags have come to the fore, to show the world that fashion isn't as shallow as it seems, we care about the world too! This was highlighted in The Guardian and their pick of the best fair-trade bags.

Some bags that made their list included shoppers like the one pictured above left, which costs just £5 and will help support the farmers in West Bengal. It is also completely bio-degradable, so it won't harm Mother Earth.
If you are looking for something a little bit dressier, how about this handmade silk bag (pictured above right) from Cambodia? At £48, it seems such a small price to pay to do some good.
