Lidl Northern Ireland is calling budding young artists across the region to unleash their inner Picasso and create an eye-catching design to feature on the retailer’s brand new heavy-duty plastic shopping bags, due to hit stores later this year.

Lidl is set to introduce durable, reusable shopping bags, made from 100% recycled plastic, and is calling on young creatives to give the bags a stylish makeover.

Drawing inspiration from the world around them, and their own imagination, children are encouraged to get creative and submit a drawing, sketch or painting of what one of the R’s of Sustainability means to them – choosing from the themes ‘reduce’, ‘reuse’ or ‘recycle’.



Angela Connan, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Lidl Northern Ireland, says, “We’re delighted to launch our brand new heavy-duty recycled plastic shopping bags this year, but we can’t do it without the help of young creatives across the region.

“We’re looking for someone with bags of style to put the finishing touches on our shopping bags and create a stylish design centred around the theme of sustainability.

“Whether you create a drawing based on reusing egg containers as seed pots, a painting of your family recycling glass bottles, or sharing a photo of how you have grown your garden into a haven for bees and butterflies, the creative possibilities are endless!
