Frequently asked questions
This should help answer some of your queries.
Why give morsbags away for free, can i sell them to raise money for charity?
No! The likelihood is that you are here because you were given a Morsbag or heard about someone getting a Morsbag. If Morsbags were only sold then they would just be like any other old ‘tote’ bag for sale. What makes Morsbags stand out from the crowd is that they are a ‘gift’, a way to say ‘Hey, have you thought about your plastic bag use, take this, no really, there is no catch – just use it and tell others!’
Why do we have to pay for labels?
Labels are actually cheaper than most other alternatives like using iron on transfer paper. We don’t profit from labels sales, all revenue goes back to covering the printing and shipping of the labels.
