Eco Friendly Shopping Bags
Instead of using plastic bags when you grocery shop, have you thought of switching to more eco friendly shopping bags? I know it is so easy to say “Plastic please” but if you plan ahead a little, you can instead say “I have my own bags”. I have a bag organizer in the trunk of my car, so when I go shopping, I just pop the trunk and grab my bag caddy. There are a few things about the reusable shopping bags you can buy from your local retailer that I don’t like. I don’t like that they don’t offer as much room as I would like and they are not made very well. I have had several of these cheap bags spilt apart and my groceries spilled all over the parking lot. I was not a very happy camper. I knew there had to be a better product; I just wasn’t sure where they were!

Organic Canvas Tote Bags
I love the organic canvas tote bags from ECOBAGS ® as well as their string bag. I was so excited to have the chance to review a selection of bags from ECOBAGS ®. I was given the ECOBAGS ® Recycled Cotton Canvas Lunch Bag $4.99, the ECOBAGS ® Produce Bag Set $9.99 and the ECOBAGS ® Classic String Bag Organic Cotton Tote $7.99. My favorite of the group is the string bag. This handy bag is almost like an anomaly! This bag is deceptively strong as it can hold up to 40 pounds! I can assure you I tested it out on our trip to the market. We bought a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and they all fit nicely in this bag that I had slipped into my purse! It is so amazing! I do like the produce bags and I have my broccoli and cucumbers in one that is in my fridge right now. The canvas lunch tote is the perfect size for the kids to take to school with their lunch in it. I let the kids decorate the bag with fabric markers and they have such fun doing it! I can tell you from my experience with the ECOBAGS ® that you will love them and with these prices, you can stock up on them for your next trip to the grocery store.
