When we moved last fall I realized I was slightly a tote hoarder. It seems every conference or convention I’ve gone to has provided me with a new tote. Every Black Friday I would be suckered into spending a little more at some of my favorite stores to receive the free totes they offered. And they are always so cute, aren’t they?
Storing the multitude of totes was not really an issue either since I would stuff them nicely inside one another causing my tote obsession to grow without even realizing it. I finally compared all the totes to one another and cleared out my storage. Majority of them were beyond similar.
Then I was introduced to RagBags. I was instantly attracted to the fact they serve multiple purposes. Not only are they reusable totes, they are recyclable and double as rags. Their softness makes it easy to grab them up and use them as a hand towel.
Our family loves shopping at Sam’s Club but we have to always come prepared with our own totes so these RagBags work perfect. Our local Half Price Books store sold out of the bags quickly over the holiday season. I’m eager to see which new stores start to carry them.
The best part of these bags, beyond their multi-use, is the fact they fold up so small. No longer do I have the need to stuff totes inside of totes. They fold us nicely and require less room than our bathroom wash rags.
RagBags are the endlessly useful, environmentally responsible fabric bag that launched in DFW. RagBags are made from a revolutionary new bio-based material that is soft, strong and absorbent. They can be reused and repurposed, eliminating the need for plastic or paper bags. And when or if you throw them away, they are fully biodegradable. They are also made in the USA! You can learn more about RagBags at www.ragbags.com.
Why Were RagBags Created?
RagBags were created in response to the carryout bag ordinance that was passed (effective Jan. 1, 2015) by the Dallas City Council to improve the environment and keep our city clean. RagBags also have life beyond carrying groceries or books – they can be washed and repurposed as hand towels, baby bibs, polishing cloths and used in place of paper towels.
Full Disclosure: I received several RagBags complimentary to conduct this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Do you take your own totes when you go grocery shopping?
