A fun package arrived in the mail yesterday from Delight.com:
They're Envirosax's reusable grocery bags. Instead of boring, plain, bulky canvas, they are lightweight, waterproof, reusable bags made of a thin polyester that reminds me of parachute material. I first heard about them at Shelterrific and loved the fun prints. I've been trying to use less plastic grocery and shopping bags, and I thought this would make the effort much more fun.
This little red bag is about the size of a small pencil bag and it holds 5 full-size totes. Here's a peek inside:
Those are the re-folding instructions in the background.
And here are the bags in their full-size glory:
Yikes! They're HUGE. I put a half-gallon carton on the bags for scale. These bags would each easily hold two gallon jugs plus other groceries. And they're so light and thin that they easily fold back up into the little red sack.
Now, if only we lived a little closer to Trader Joe's....
