Hive unveils shopping bags

Bosses at a Shropshire arts and entertainment venue have today unveiled a new range of promotional shopping bags. Staff at the Hive Music and Media Centre in Shrewsbury are already sporting their own on the High Street and customers are doing the same with bags immediately flying off the shelf!

The cotton bags feature stylish Hive branding and have been produced to raise awareness of the Hive not only as a venue but also as a youth arts charity working with disadvantaged young people across the county. Like many other businesses, the bags enable customers to spread the message of the organisation whilst also being eco-friendly too, saving on the necessity of plastic carrier bags.

Habib Malik-Mansell of the Hive said "Lots of companies nationwide now seem to be utilising eco-friendly shopping bags as a promotional tool and it made sense for the Hive to do the same. As a charity, it enables us not only to raise funds for our work but also to maintain a positive presence around the town centre and beyond."

The new Hive bags are available to purchase from the centre on Belmont and are reasonably priced at only £2.
