Have you ever thought about how many plastic bags you obtain in one week? When I go to the grocery store, I could potentially get 20 bags. And at Target, I’m pretty sure they pack one item per plastic bag. I bet my family collects 50 bags a week. Multiply that times 52 and that’s a pretty scary number. Thanks to our friends at Neela Bags, we can take a stand! These reusable, eco and environmentally friendly bags are stylish to boot. They come in four flavors right now – the green and zebra are my faves. I’m told they’ll add some new fabrics toward the end of the summer.
I checked out the “Market Pack” (see above photo) which contains 5 foldable market totes and retails for $22. Each market tote holds up to 20 lbs of stuff and will last up to two years with weekly use. These bags hold 2-3 times more than plastic bags. So I did a test-drive at Earth Fare and when I whipped out these groovy bags, every person at checkout was interested in my bags. It really makes a statement when you fill up an entire grocery cart with pretty eco-friendly bags! I have since used these at Target, Trader Joe’s, even the mall. Although Neela Bags offers a standard shopper bag specifically for mall use that retails for $7. This bag folds up small like a wallet to keep in your purse.
I like the price points of these green bags. The patterns are presh. These are a must-have and make for great gifts. Check them out at www.neelabags.com!
Those soumd pretty cool. I will have to check them out.Jennifer Hoyle
HOORAY for re-useable bags! Stash them in your car so you don’t forget on the way out to the store! I’ve gotten cheers from the cashiers at Harris Teeter and of course Trader Joe’s (TJ’s enters you into a contest for free groceries each time you shop with your own bags). It’s great to see this trend catch on!!
question? Does it help CSP if we order from this site or anything? I think the market pack will become a go to birthday gift for all the ladies in my family this year.
Well, since you asked, it always helps if you click on the link on CSP and then order from them. They can track where people are coming in from. As opposed to you typing in their web address separately. This just helps our numbers and visibility. Thanks for thinking of us:-)I agree, I am ordering quite a few for gifts throughout the year. I wish I thought of it before Mother’s Day b/c my mother-in-law would love these! You just can’t beat the prices. Perfect hostess gifts too, add a bottle of wine to the wine tote and you’re all set!
I clicked thru the CSP link last week & ordered 3, 2 as gifts and 1 for me to test out. I LOVE the patterns & can’t wait to get them! Thanks for featuring such a sassy and affordable product!!!
Excellent! I just ordered 2 Packs…Thanks for the link!Karen S.
I use bags from http://www.go-againbags.com. They are definitely not as cute but cheaper. I give them out as gifts and carry them in my car and stroller so I always have one handy!
LOVE reusable bags – they are so wonderful! I have 2 riesenthal bags in my diaper bag – they roll up into a small bag and are very easy to carry. Thanks CSP for encouraging others to be a little ‘greener’ 🙂
Some people have a shoe obsession, others have a purse problem. Me, I’m a shopping bag addict. Thanks for helping feed the problem! (at least it’s remarkably cheaper than shoes & purses, right!?!?)I’ll be sure to click through from here 🙂
I have the market tote of 5 bags and I LOVE them. They usually hold all of my groceries and are much easier to carry inside.
Anyone else having trouble ordering? I click on what I want then proceed to checkout and it says my bag is empty. any help out there?
I had a problem ordering, too. I was using Internet Explorer when it wasn’t working so I retried in Mozilla instead and it worked. So, I would try using a different browser. Good luck!
OK, try to click through and order now. Problem should be fixed!
Harris Teeter (at least the two I frequent the most)is also entering names into a drawing for free groceries every time you reuse their green bags. They even have a green bag that has been on sale for the past several weeks for 99cents. I can put an entire cart of groceries in 4 or 5 of those bags. I leave them in my car and hope to remember to carry them in with me–I’m much more successful at this if I’m not carting a 2-year-old and her snack, sippy cup and God knows what else she’s insisting on dragging along that’s not worth arguing over.
Just got my market pack today in giraffe print and they are awesome! Can’t wait to use them at Target tomorrow! Thanks for the info.
I love the Neela bags- they are so convenient to stash in the car or in my purse. I even have my husband toting the market pack (in black) to the store! I also like the wine bags- they are a cute alternative to paper ones!
