  1. You can buy them in a whole range of supermarkets. Guess you missed the some suppliers can be found here link? It takes you to an Amazon store I set up ages ago but no longer update . It may be out of date but will direct you to other suppliers. You can also try the plasticisrubbish facebook page. Loads of up to date info there. There are also a load on eBay. Thanks for droppping by.

  2. This is so frustrating. Loads of info but you search this blog for one link to a retailer of bio-bags.
