Holds A LOT of stuff...these are the size of a traditional paper bag...but with handles!
Stays open for easy packing and folds up flat...just like paper bags.
Made from 50% recycled content..including plastic bottles
The produce bags are made of organic cotton and are very large
Made using fair wages / fair labor
Makes a great gift (I gave a set to my parents)
Are handy for carrying anything..not just groceries. I use them for overnight trips, picnics etc.
Helps make a difference in the war against the plague of plastic bags:
"Over a billion single-use plastic bags are given out for free each day. But as the old adage says, nothing comes for free. Here are some facts to illustrate the actual costs paid by our environment and society for the fleeting convenience of unlimited, free, single-use plastic bags. To see the real costs, we must look at the "cradle to grave" multiple impacts and the effects of each phase of a bag's life."
You have to remember to bring them into the store with you for them to work :)
They are pricey ($50 plus shipping) - but you are getting a set of 8
They are not as pretty and cool as other brands
They are so big that sometimes they may be filled too heavy for some folks (so they need to remind the bagger to fill them only half way etc)
Overall...I am very happy with this set...
thanks Marissa for the recommendation!
