EcoSwag: A Better Reusable Shopping Tote

With plastic bags now banned in San Francisco and other cities starting to follow suit, the popularity of custom-imprinted reusable shopping bags has soared. The most popular ones seem to be the boxy, non-woven shopping totes with 1″ wide handles that you find for sale in most grocery stores.

Those boxy bags are OK, but they’ve got some drawbacks. For one thing, they really don’t fold down very small so they’re a pain to carry around with you. The non-woven fabric rips fairly easily, and when they’re loaded with groceries those skinny handles can really dig into your hands or shoulders.

This Reusable Nylon Folding Tote is a better reusable shopping tote. It easily folds down to a tiny 3.5″x2.5″x1″ size & stores in an attached pouch. That’s a perfect size for a pocket, small purse or glovebox. Even better, it’s specially designed to fit on those metal supermarket checkout frames, making it easier to load.

Made of ripstop nylon, it’s stronger and more durable than the nonwoven bags – and more comfortable to carry when loaded with groceries. Priced about the same as the nonwoven totes, I think this is a better bag that is easier to use and store. It comes in black or green with your 1-color custom imprint on 1 side. Minimum order is 100 bags. Pricing is $2.70-$3.30 depending on quantity.

Speaking of swag ideas, this would be a GREAT TRADESHOW BAG to give out at your next event. You could demonstrate at your booth how it folds down into the small pouch for easy storage. Use them as swag bags at your company picnic or golf tournament, or give them to customers as a gift-with-purchase.

These could also be sold for around $5 as a nonprofit fundraiser. No matter how you use them, they’re a nice earth-friendly item that people will really appreciate… and they’re DIFFERENT from what everyone else is doing 🙂
