This reusable bag not only look amazing but is an almighty alternative to a plastic carrier bag! It holds 2–3 plastic grocery bags worth of stuff and folds into a flat 5" × 5" pouch so you can have it handy wherever you are! As most reusable bags you can pick up in the supermarkets are plastic these are an awesome alternative to those who want 'proper' shopping bag over a tote! PLUS they are made from 40% recycled materials from pre-consumer waste which means scrap material have been saved from landfill, and in turn helping conserve petroleum resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions! RECYCLED CANVAS All of our Ripstop Nylon styles, including our namesake reusable bags, are made with 40% recycled material. We're using a recycled nylon filament yarn produced from pre-consumer waste, which means we're saving scrap material from landfill, and in turn helping conserve petroleum resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We also use environmentally responsible dyes that are fully absorbed by the material during production, minimizing runoff. WHY 40%? The short answer is: It's a better product! By weaving recycled and non-recycled fibers together, we're able to produce a bag that's ready for everyday use and meets the standards of strength and durability our customers have come to expect.
