While we totally support reusing shopping bags, but we also feel that there is a better alternative to even more plastic, which will ultimately break and create waste. With this in mind we designed our own large, unbleached, heavy cotton shopping bags.
These bags are strong enough (made from 12oz unbleached cotton) to handle heavy items such as milk and tins, and are large enough (59cm x 41cm) to handle your weekly shop (for our families of 4 & 5 we use 3 of them for the full shop) or the inevitable overbuying we do at the farmers market! They fit easily into a regular trolley - plus, using fewer bags also means less fiddling at the check out, which is always a good thing and have an internal pocket to store little things or keep keys to hand.
When not in use, they pack down into a small, flat square for storage and can even be rolled should you need them to be more compact.
Made from unbleached cotton, using reinforced handles and stitching, these bags are heavy duty and should last a lot longer than their plastic 'bag for life' counterparts. From a vanity point of view, we also love the fact that these bags are all natural and look great. Just three should carry your weekly shop, plus they look nice and consistent, carrying your groceries in a natural material.
Prior to these natural and long lasting bags, we had been using an assortment of plastic derived bags that were either too small or falling apart, from various stores - it just doesn't look or feel nice doing our grocery shop with them. We've been using them for a while now and know that these will stand up to the rigours of the family shop and more.
Weekly food shopping can be a chore - where possible, let's try and reduce the plastic involved and make it as nice on ourselves and the planet as we can.
We love these bags and felt sure you would too!
Not only does using these bags reduce plastic consumption and waste, we also plant a tree for every order. How much harder can we ask a shopping bag to work?
