This summer, the Bedminster BID will release a new tote bag that will be available in your favourite Bemmie businesses. The tote will represent what it means to live, work and play in Bedminster. We’re looking for local designers to make their mark on this new tote and create a design that shows Bedminster’s passion, community spirit and independence.

The winning design will appear on at least 2000 tote bags, distributed around the area and will help Bedminster become more sustainable in our bid to reduce the usage of plastic bags for shopping in the area!
