Tights = nylon = plastic .˙. tights = bad.
Nevertheless, I wear tights. I’m not prepared to give ’em up, because that would mean not wearing dresses. And, as that would rule out three-quarters of my wardrobe, it’s just not feasible. I’m sticking with tights.
So the least I can do is buy them without plastic packaging.
And that’s where Snag come in.
I was originally drawn to them because of their range of sizes. Most other tights come in just four sizes – S, M, L and XL – the first three differing only in length, and the last one super long as well as extra wide. Snag, on the other hand, are available in sizes 6 to 36, and offer a range of widths and lengths, depending on your body type. There are loads of funky colours too. A definite plus, but are they encased in single-use plastic?
Nope. My first Snag purchase arrived yesterday, in a sturdy brown paper bag, which I’ll definitely reuse. And the tights inside (‘suffragette purple’ and trusty ol’ black) were wrapped in pastel tissue paper, which I can either recycle or use for gifts. Hurrah!
