The Grays' go GREEN

ACME Bags™ - Recycled PET Dual Handled Tote

Bob purchased these bags for us to use. I have to admit at first I was a little hesitant .... I thought it might be pretty dorky to walk into a store with my own bags or the cashiers would be annoyed at something that wasn't routine. Well, I got over myself and used them at the grocery store this weekend. Happy to report I received an "awesome" from the young cashier and Bob discovered if you use your own bags at Trader Joe's you are entered into a monthly drawing for a gift certificate for groceries. Bob and I each have a set of 4 and we leave them in our car for each shopping excursion.

The coolest thing . . . . the bags are made from recycled bottles. The fabric used to produce each of these bags reclaims about 10 recycled plastic bottles/containers! Check them out and feel good about making a small change that could have a huge impact!

  • 98% post-consumer recycled content
  • Made from recycled plastic bottles & containers
  • Stylish, strong & durable
  • Innovative long & short handles
  • Carry over shoulder or by hand
  • Fabric is soft & strong (unlike some scratchy recycled PET bags)
  • Made with fair wages / fair labor

    Looks like a great XMas gift for your "green" and "hippie" brother and sister-in-law.
