Reusable Shopping Bags

getDynamicImage.aspxI love using these fantastic reuseit Earthtote reusable shopping bags.  I’ve had them for many years and can’t even remember when I bought them.  Despite frequent use they are still in excellent condition.  Similar in size to a paper bag, they have plenty of capacity and can handle heavy loads.

I’ve used Earthtote bags to cart home the week’s groceries, CSA produce, tons of veggies from the farmer’s market and Costco.  When they get dirty, I rinse them out and hang them up to dry and I’ve thrown them into the washing machine numerous times (machine wash cold, drip dry).

totebagSince I am not walking too far from the garage to the kitchen, they can be packed HEAVY and there is no risk of them failing.  They stand up for easy bagging, the handles are comfortable and the right height for carrying heavy loads.  After several years use and washing they don’t stand up quite as strongly as before, but are still quite easy to pack.  I’ve even gotten compliments from store baggers on how much they like these bags!

I think they are quite inexpensive for the durability (just $9.95 and free shipping for orders over $49).  I bought 6 and keep them in the back of the car so they are always available whenever I need them.  I can’t even count how many paper and plastic bags I’ve saved by this point.  My grocery store gives a nickel credit for each bag you bring yourself so after 200 trips the bag is paid for and I’ve long surpassed that point.
