Now I can always have a shopping tote on hand

I have been eying the BAGGU Reusable Shopping Totes for some time now. I had also looked at the Envirosax, ChicoBag and Waste-Less brands, but when the BAGGU's were available on a Lightning Deal recently I made the leap.

Pros:
* Lots of colors to choose from - I chose Fuchsia
* Size - They hold a lot and they fold up into a small pouch. I carry two in my purse, so that I always have a bag available to me now.
* Sturdiness - I've loaded these up at the grocery store with heavy and sometimes sharp edged products and so far no tearing or damage to the bags.

Cons:
* Price - This is the only thing I don't like about these bags. At just over $6 per bag it seems a bit high, but if they last and keep me from bringing home so many plastic bags I guess it's worth it.

Baggu
Called the "It bag of the future" by Teen Vogue, this stylish and ridiculously practical bag (sold in packages of 3 and 6) is one easy step in helping save the planet. Baggu ("bag" in Japanese) is machine washable, and folds up into it's own pouch small enough to tuck into your handbag or pocket. Made of super-tough ripstop nylon in bright, fun colors, it's the re-usable bag that's eco-chic.

Why Baggus are so great? You want to replace your old friends--the paper & plastic bags--with something that does their job without creating needless waste or harming the environment. Using one Baggu for one year replaces 300 to 700 disposable bags.

  • One Baggu holds the contents of 2 to 3 plastic grocery bags; Six bags can hold a whole cart full of groceries.

  • Baggu Bag handles are the perfect length: you can hold them in your hand, on your forearm, or over your shoulder.

  • They are made from strong rip-stop nylon weighing only 2 oz. and can carry up to 25 lbs. They fold into a flat 5 by 5 inch pouch that easily slips in a purse or pocket; that way they are always handy when you need them.

  • Baggu bags have a nice big gusset in the bottom so they will sit flat when they are filled (good for eggs & milk).

Smart Design
Baggu was designed by mother-daughter team Joan and Emily in California. They both saw the need for a better reusable bag, and after dozens of prototypes, came up with a solution that makes using reusable bags stylish, practical and easy.
