Totes amazing! A shopping bag that supports the high street, the environment and local journalism

Roman Road LDN now has cotton tote bags available for sale!

They come in a range of six different colours, including shades of bright  blue and green, white, red or pink and are available exclusively at Roman Road’s SNAP stationary store.

The profits will go towards supporting our non-profit organisation, where we are all about supporting our high street and helping local, independent businesses thrive.

This is why we’re exclusively partnering with SNAP.  The independent stationary and gift store, owned by the inimitable Helen Fisher, has become a staple of the Roman, with its signature bright pink shopfront.

So if you pop down to SNAP and grab one of our bags, you are not only supporting one of our local and independent businesses, you are also supporting us – a  strappy, independent local magazine that is pioneering a model of local journalism that is for the community and by the community.

We write about our local high street and keep you in the know about the latest places to shop, eat and drink. We also inform you about our area’s local heritage and history, and keep you in up to date about the latest community campaigns and news – so that you know what is happening in your local area. In other words, we use journalism to help our community thrive.

And buying a tote bag (or two) will help us in our mission to keep local press free and independent.

As if you need another reason…they’re good for the environment. Our totes are made of cotton so they are lightweight and durable, and can easily be folded away into your usual bag or even your coat pocket. They are the perfect bag to have with you for running errands, or those unplanned stops at the grocery store.

The bags retail for £8.50 or you can buy four bags for £22: a whopping £12 discount. The bags are available both in store and online at SNAP.

Would you like a tote for free? Then consider becoming a Roman Road LDN Patron. By donating as little as £2 a month, you can pick up a tote for free.

One last thing…
