All the local grocery stores in my area have begun charging 5 cents per plastic bag to try to get more people to use reusable shopping bags. It just makes good money sense to use reusable shopping bags and not be dinged each time you make a shopping trip! I have discovered a reusable shopping bag called Baggu that fits the bill.
Baggu is run by a small team of designers and entrepreneurs who believe that a good design should be functional, beautiful and affordable. Their goal is to make basic products that have more than one use so you can own less stuff. Makes perfect sense for me since I don’t like clutter! They love bright colours and have developed a product that is both stylish and made from high quality materials. Their reusable shopping bag is based on the traditional plastic shopping bag, but with the added benefit of being good for the environment.
The Baggu is designed for the unexpected shopping trip since it is so lightweight that you will be able to easily carry it with you. The idea here is that you will want to carry it with you since it compact and can be easily stored in your car or purse. It’s also stylish so you can carry out as a bag! Using one Baggu for one year replaces 300 to 700 disposable bags. Wow! Could you imagine the effect on our environment if more people used this product?!
The Baggu is made with 100% ripstop nylon which is a super durable and long lasting fabric. The pouch that the Baggu is stored in is made from scrap material making sure there is no waste whatsoever in the manufacturing process.
I received a Pink Baggu and absolutely love it! It’s in my favourite colour and the design is fabulous. I use mine both for unexpected shopping trips or carrying items when I am going over to a friend’s place. I do my best to not use plastic shopping bags to help the environment and plus I don’t want to have to pay for them!
My Baggu is very lightweight and can be stowed easily in my purse. It also is very durable and is capable of holding all the items I purchased on my shopping trips. I love that it is stylish and functional all in one! Great product!!
It is also very affordable and costs $8.00 per bag and they do offer volume discounts if you purchase 3 or more bags. They have other Baggus as well including a Mom Baggu, Lincoln Baggu, Baby Baggu, Big Baggu, Produce Bag and Grocery Kit. To purchase, please visit the Baggu website.
