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.

Baggu is great whether you shop on foot or drive to the store, you always need to have a bag or two that fold up small and can be carried in your purse, ready for an unexpected errand. . .

Made of lightweight, hard working fabrics that will perform for years of service in all of your daily toting tasks: groceries, pharmacy purchases, gifts, and books, and pet food, and clothes and anything else you can think of--all the things you find yourself accepting a disposable bag to bring home.

Changing your own shopping habits is one small thing you can do to make a difference--feel good every time you use your BAGGU!

Plastic Bags & the Planet
The average family brings home 1,000 bags every year. Most of those bags end up in land fills. That really adds up - 100 billion plastic bags are sent to landfill in the US each year.

In landfills, it can take up to 1000 years for a bag to decompose. Plastics don't biodegrade, they photo-degrade, breaking down into tiny toxic pieces that contaminate soil and water or harm wildlife.

Every time you use your Baggu bag instead of plastic or paper you are doing something good.

My children used to giggle when they saw older women walking around the malls, carrying those little black mesh shopping bags; they were like caricatures of funny seniors depicted in so many cartoons. Even though I could see the convenience and practicality of those bags, I admit to a few chuckles myself. But I thought they were cute little old ladies, rather endearing, in fact.    As the years passed and styles changed, more and more people started carrying their own shopping …
