5.0 The Best Shopping Bags!

Comments about Product:

These are the best grocery bags! Sturdy, compact, endlessly expandable. We've had a set for over two years and they've held up great despite being stuffed to bursting with our weekly grocery run, shoved in backpacks, tied to shopping carts, etc. The colors are soothing. I love these bags! I'm about to buy some more for a gift.

Comments about Product:

These bags are really great to have tucked in each car and my desk at work. They are able to hold a lot of things and the handles are really comfotable to hold on to. I gave one of the bags in my set to my parents and they are just as happy with their bag as I am with mine.

Comments about Product:

I've been using my earth tone cotton string bags for over a year now. I've been so happy with them I recently placed another order for them to make sure I have enough bags on hand when I go to the grocery store. It's amazing how much these bags hold. I never have to worry about the bags breaking on my way from the car to the house the way I did with the plastic bags. I would absolutely recommend these bags.

Comments about Product:

These mesh sacks hold a ton of weight and expand to contain all sorts of odd shapes. I find them useful for trips to the farmers market, but also to the beach (as you don't have to carry sand home in your beach bag). They fit into the stuff sack pretty well, but you have to really cram them in.

Comments about Product:

I bought this type of bag back in the 80's (they were called french market bags at the time) and everyone always commented on them. I finally decided to look them up online and found them, bought several sets and gave them out at Christmas. People are thrilled. I kept one of the shoulder bags for myself and used it to do my New Year's dinner shopping - Wow! Great handsfree carrying for the heavy stuff!!!! P.S. I also use them at the beach because the sand falls right through them and you can throw them in the wash!!!!

Comments about Product:

This was my second purchase of these bags, this time as a gift for my niece and her husband. They had admired mine when visiting, so I shared the fun of using them! They are bright, colorful, hold lots of weight, and many items at one time! They store very small, yet carry items many times their weight! I always get compliments from others when I use them. Enjoy!

I purchased the net bags for myself and fell in love with the ease of keeping them with me and how much they hold without needing to run to the car before they break or fall apart(look great too)! Great construction, fun colors and easy to keep with you. I purchased a set for each of my birthday buddies, one with short handles for the petite friend and one with long handles for the very tall friend. They are thrilled-each of them called me from the store the first time they used them! Thanks

Comments about Product:

I can get a whole cart worth of groceries into these 5 bags. With plastic grocery store bags, it usually took over 10 bags each time I went to the store! And they don't cut into my hands like the plastic bags do, so I can make fewer trips from the car to inside my house. Also great for the beach/gym, because they let the moisture out and your clothes aren't sitting damp in a bag.

5.0 I love these bags

Comments about Product:

I love these bags. I bought the short-handled string bags with 5 different colors that come with their own stuff bag. I use them all time for groceries and dept. store shopping. People are always asking me where I got them and I tell them where and how easy it was and how quickly they came. I also think the price was a fair one. I get my money's worth each time I use them. I was impressed with the colors and the quality. I really stuff them and with the five bags, I can pretty much get one-week's worth of groceries in them. I don't hesitate with heavy loads either...they perform so well. I'm going to get some to give as Christmas gifts this year. Thank you for such a wonderful product.

Comments about Product:

I absolutely love these bags. The colors are great. I take them to the store all the time & the cashier always looks at me like I'm crazy, but I end up stuffing everything in these bags with a few left over. They stretch like you would not believe. My only complaint is they are a little shallow. Things tend to fall out on the drive home.

5.0 I love these bags!

Comments about Product:

I love these bags! They are strong enough to carry heavy things, for example - dog food cans. They are very handy to carry around in the stuff sack. And I love the colors! They make me happy to grocery shop! I originally purchased a set to take to Mexico on vacation to carry groceries from the market since we weren't going to have a car. The 5 bags compacted nicely in the stuff sack and my husband could attach the stuff sack to his belt until we were ready to use them. They worked great, but I liked them so much I use them all the time now. I also have bought them as gifts. The concept of the string bags is not new, and it's a good one - but the colors always bring a smile to people's faces!

Comments about Product:

I've had these bags for close to 4 years now and I absolutely love them. The hardest part about using them is telling the bagger at the store that they can fit way more than he/she thinks. I can fit 6 roles of paper towels without a problem! I prefer to use more structured bags (e.g., boxier) with thicker, more heavy duty material for heavier boxes.

I have been looking everywhere for these. I recall these from when I was younger, I always marveled at how stylish these were and remember my mother carrying produce in these from the local market. :) She would keep the produce (that doesn't get refrigerated) in these. I loved the bright colors. Reminds me of the colors of the carribean. And in this frigid winter, makes me feel warm and sunny. :)

MOST AWESOME BAGS! I have had so many conversations with checkout people and baggers about these bags. The checker says they are COOL and the bagger has no clue! I just tell him heavy stuff on the bottom and llight stuff on the top. Then, I usually tell him, "keep stuffing, it holds up to 40 lbs." Awesome product!!!

I loaded it with 5 pounds of tangerines, 4 pounds of chestnuts, 1 bread loaf and several small items, like chocolate bars and 4 or 5 canned refreshments. It had much more space to be loaded, it was durable, it looked very pretty and i was commented that it looked very fashionable. I was very, very pleased with the quality of work of these bags. They were so well constructed, even in their last, small, tiny detail. Value for money? Absolutely! Double or triple the value.

I love these bags! I really like that I can put boxes (cereal, etc) in them and I don't have to worry about the edges of the boxes poking through and ripping a hole like they do in plastic bags. Yet another reason to stay away from plastic bags... they're flimsy! These string bags are sturdy and can fit a LOT of stuff! I highly recommend them.

Comments about Product:

The ECOBAGS® EarthTone Cotton String Bag Set with Hemp StuffSack we recently purchased is great! We're both really tired of the plastic bags that we always get at the grocery stores and elsewhere to haul our purchases home. We have a sailboat that we spend our winters on in the lower latitudes (read warmer latitudes) and getting groceries back to the boat is always a hassle. Not any more! Our string bags take up virtually no space when not in use, but can be hung up on hooks in the boat for storage of fresh produce or anything else. So we have built in storage for our groceries now. We don't even have to unload the bags after getting back to the boat. We just hang them up and let them swing to the rocking of the boat. And because they are such great earth-tones, they add a great touch of color to our boats interior!! All in all, we're very satified with our purchase and plan buying a few more to encourage others to get on board with the string-bag thing. Cheers

So far I love the Eco-friendly string bags. I have only had the opportunity to use them twice and the only problem I see is that checkers tend to not know how to load them properly.

Comments about Product:

I have been using these bags for quite a while and really enjoy not having to use the plastic bags at the grocery store instead for produce that just get tossed in the trash or that I try to "recycle" with shavings from my cooking. They are strong and if they get soiled, they wash nicely. The check-out people have even used them as bags with additional items if necessary, rather than using plastic bags for me along with my canvas bags and given me monetary credit on my bill for them! I love them!!

Love your products. However, with my last order I only received half of the string bags I had ordered. It was difficult to reach someone to help on the phone, and I was in an area with no internet service. I left a message Sat morning at 9 am and didn't hear from anyone. Finally on Monday at 1pm or so I tried to contact you again. The problem was very easily corrected when I finally reached a very helpful service rep, but the amount of time invested in getting this corrected was a little irritating.

Comments about Product:

I had ordered 2 5-bag sets in gem tones previously, and loved them. Since the gem tones were not available, I opted for this set when I needed more. I'm not happy with it, however. They are not as durable, like, made with thinner cotton or something, and one of the string bags (the blue one--my favorite color even) is dwarfed in size, maybe as much as half the size of the other bags. Sending them back seems like such a waste, so I kept them for gifts, but now I'm not sure if I can risk ordering again, because I expected the same product as before.

The product is used to place product at the farmer's market on a Hook and Go cart. You might try to sell your product in conjunction with the cart which is sold on line or through the distributor Sur La Table. For purposes of vegetables and fruit, etc., the bags needs to be larger and stronger.

Comments about Product:

I love the string bags. They pack up very compactly into the hemp bag. Stylish!! Just need to remember to leave them in the car for those spur of the moment shopping trips. I'm probably going to buy another five to make sure I always have them. Love them!!

Comments about Product:

These bags are both fun and great! A unique use for them for Starbucks shoppers it to put that 4-drink cup holder in the bottom of the bag, then the drinks in the cup holder, and you can carry that cumbersome cup holder with one hand in your hemp stuffsack, and now worry about spilling all over yourself!

Comments about Product:

What great bags. Wherever we go people ask where we got them Of course we tell them about you. It,s amazing how much they hold. The first time we used them I purchased eggs and bread among other things and was afraid they would not carry these things safely. But not to worry. Everything got home A-OK. What a great product.

Comments about Product:

Many, many years ago back in the 70's I had a college friend who spent a year in France as an exchange student at the Soir Bon. She brought all of us back this very unique gift. A mesh bag used in France for their purchases. They didn't use brown paper bags but instead used these bags. I have kept that bag all these years and was excited to be able to find them at your website. But with the new updated colors, they are even better. I am glad to say they are the exact type of bag I've had all these years. I keep them in my car so they are handy when I decide to go shopping.

4.0 I love the colors of the bags, and have enjoyed us

Comments about Product:

I love the colors of the bags, and have enjoyed using them for groceries (they hold a deceptively large amount of food!). They hang perfectly on the hooks usually used for the plastic bags for easy loading. They are also easy to transport--I take all 5 for big trips, or throw 1-2 in my purse for smaller ones. The long handles are useful to carrying a bag or two on your shoulder, and I loosely knot the straps together for full bags to help keep the contents in and make them easier to carry. There are two features that fall short of perfect: since the bags have no real structure, they spread out when you set them down and this makes trunk loading a bit challenging for large trips; and, those long handles are so long that the bag drags on the ground if you try to use the handles to carry without knotting them first, or slinging them over your shoulder.

They are great, and they wash easily! My husband wasn't convinced that they would hold up to 40 lbs.... proved him wrong. Now I have to share the bags with him. He keeps some in his truck all the time! Thanks for an awesome product!

Comments about Product:

Your colorful string bags make great gifts to encourage friends and family to break the tear-a-plastic-bag-off-the-roll habit. I stuff an EarthTone cotton string bag with clean, recycled produce bags and a note reminding the recipient to slip the bag on his/her wrist before entering the produce section. It's just as easy to whisk a recyled bag from the lightweight string bag as to tear off a new one, and at the checkout stand all those recycled plastic bags now filled with fresh produce fit neatly into the brightly colored string bag. Thanks for making so many great colors available! ~ irene

Comments about Product:

LOVE the bags! I didn't need all of them, so I gave two to a friend (with the hemp sack), and she was delighted. The reason the bags are so great is that they can hold a lot of things, and even sharp edges don't shred the cotton strings at all, which is fabulous! Also, the fact they can hold up to 40 lbs is really helpful, especially when I go to the farmers market. I just roll one into a ball, stuff it into a pocket and get what I need. Thank you!

Comments about Product:

I recently received my order of these bags and have been very pleased with how sturdy they have been at the grocery store. Even with sharp corners of cereal boxes jabbing through and heavy cans adding weight, they have held up. I've also used them around the house, for example, in the laundry room to hold socks until their mates can be found. I like that they leave the contents of whatever you are carrying visible.

5.0 These are quality bags

Comments about Product:

These are quality bags. They are compact, and hold much more than they look like. The hemp holder, however, barely holds all five bags at once, and when you take one bag out, you get more than one at a time. I simply do not use the holder, and instead use one of the bags to hold all the others. These bags hold about as much as a standard plastic bag, so if you have as many groceries as I do, then get 2 sets. One bag will easily hold up to a dozen or so other bags. Additionally, a minor concern is that the bags handles (I got the short ones) fall down, unlike the plastic bags. I recommend crossing the handles around one another (like when you begin to tie your shoelaces). Other than that, great product!

Comments about Product:

Let me say that nearly everytime I whip out my colorful string shopping bags at my local Trader Joe's, somebody ALWAYS asks, "where did you get those cool bags. I love them." Maybe you can work a deal with the merchandiser's at TJ's to do a line of string bags for them with say a TJ logo on the stuff sack and red bags inside?? Guarenteed, they will fly off the shelves. Maybe even a tie in of giving away a few sets to get the customer's using them. I'm telling you, I always am asked where I got mine. And I love turning people onto you as a source. Love your site, your products, and your mission. Take back the earth, one bag at a time. All the best to you, Karla Bluestone Pasadena CA

Comments about Product:

I have used the bags several times and have found them to be very useful. The checkout people at my grocery store (in Pennsylvania) have been very interested - they always ask where I got them. The biggest advantage is their ability to expand. This makes them superior to other reusable grocery bags being offered. I also like the colors. I wish the carrier bag was a little bigger. I find it somewhat challenging to get all the bags stuffed back into it. I will definitely recommend your products to others.

Comments about Product:

I really like these bags, and am proud to say "no thanks, I have my own bags" when the clerk asks what bags we want our groceries in. They hold much much more than I ever thought they would! This past weekend, we only used 3 of the bags (of 5). They work beautifully; and I really like these festive colors. The hemp sack is a must; it is just large enough to also hold 4 produce bags so everything is in one place to ensure ease of use. At first I was disappointed with the handle length, but rest assured it is perfect; any longer and I think they would be too cumbersome. My husband laughed when he first saw these, but he is definitely a convert now. They are amazing at how much they hold; and they never ever feel as heavy as a regular plastic or paper sack did from the grocer~ AND it allows me to always bag my own groceries without the sighs and lecture about them doing their job. I will say the only problem I have is with the cost. Right now you can buy a super cute reusable bag at whole foods for $1; and they will replace it for free when it breaks/wears out. So the cost is way too high! but I purchased them anyway and are using them for every grocery outing.

Comments about Product:

Delivery time was great. Product excellent. The smaller bags are easier to put into purses and thus more easily remembered to use. The woven bags are great for lighter stuff but easily overloaded. I love the colors of the woven ones. My biggest difficulty is developing a system to help me remember to use the bags. So far it has worked out great. I also got a Chico bag at my local health food store. It was similar to your small black bag that has it's own attached stuff sack. The chico bag has a clip to put onto a smaller coin purse for those quick trips into the market. GREAT that we are thinking of the non-biodegradable plastic situation. susan

Comments about Product:

We have been using French Market bags (such as the Ecobags we just bought for Christmas presents this year) for many years. These bags revent use of "disposable" bags for common purchases such a groceries. We learned after buying them this time that the bags with longer handles don't have as much capacity as the ones with shorter handles. The longer handles are easier to tie to keep items from falling out during transport, but it is also necessary to use more of them to tote your stuff.

The hemp bag is a tight squeeze, but they do fit. I usually end up carrying them loose in my purse or in the large produce bag I purchased. Overall, I love the look and quality of the bags and I feel great using them. :)

Comments about Product:

This is acutally Charlotte Rogan. I sent a gift of reusable bags to the Smarts, and somehow their name is on my account. As for the bags: The string shopping bags are terrific. I sent them to everyone I know for Christmas, and all love them. The tiny room for improvement comes from the fact that the string will slip back down over the items you put in the bag rather than staying closed. This wouldn't be a problem with the long-handled bags, but the short handles are too short to tie shut. It's not a huge problem, but I thought I would mention it. Other than that, I had wanted this sort of bag for a long time and was so happy to find your website! Charlotte Rogan

5.0 I love these bags!

Comments about Product:

I love these bags! I use them at the grocery store for my produce items. I have also used them to do normal day to day shopping. I have a wide array of bags, and I must say that this one is my favorite. It is very light weight, but stretches easily to hold all of its contents. I love the bright colors! I would highly recommend these bags - I even gave some as gifts for Christmas (along with the Chico bags). My next purchase will be the bags with the shorter handles - just to see if I like them as much as I do these!

5.0 I love these bags!

Comments about Product:

I love these bags! I've got a set of the long handled ones, and all 5 fit in my hemp bag. We just roll them up and stuff them in there. I've been using them for several months now. It's been a great way to help make my 5 year old aware of what plastic does to our planet. He also helps by taking the bags out when checking out and handing them to the bagger. We get lots of compliments as well from baggers and customers alike. These bags hold so much stuff it's amazing. I can easily load one bag with enough pasta boxes to fill 3 or 4 plastic bags. We've even put full size frozen pizza (the boxed kind) into these with no problem. Someone else mentioned having trouble fitting cereal boxes in, but we've not had a problem with that, and usually end up putting 3 or four boxes in one bag, along with a few other smaller items. I love that even when these are loaded up I can sling 2 on each sholder and carry the milk in one hand and still manage to open the door. no more multiple trips to unload the groceries. we used to average at least 10 plastic bags a trip, no we just usually use 4 string bags, occasionally we need the fifth one. Thanks for an awesome product!

Comments about Product:

I'm very happy with the set of bags - easy to bundle together and carry when empty, but they stretch to accommodate plenty of groceries. It's great not to be bringing all that plastic home, even though we did use to put them in recycle! One point - I saw someone else's review saying her husband liked the short handled ones better and I'm glad I chose the same as I think they are easier to carry when full - but that's just my preference.

5.0 I love my string bags

Comments about Product:

I love my string bags. I have ordered three sets of the short string bags. Only problem is the baggers still want to put groceries into the plastic bags first, then into the string bags. When I tell them not to do that they look at me as if I'm crazy. I end up usually having to pack or repack my own bags before I leave the store. These bags really are as strong as advertised. I wouldn't have ordered three sets if I wasn't impressed. I usually keep at least one set in the car just in case I make an unplanned stop on the way home. Thanks for providing such a great product. And, these bags don't slide around in the car the way plastic bags do because they aren't slick. I highly recomment them!!! Eileen Saint Louis, Missouri

Comments about Product:

I am very happy with my reusable bags. I've been using them at the local grocery stores several times now, and the sackers there have all been very complimentary. They are hesitant at first to put so much stuff in a bag, but when they see that it can handle it, they frequently want to know where I got them! The biggest problem for me is training myself to have them with me for all shopping trips. Thank you!

Love the bags. I got short handled ones. They do stretch. I can see how the long handled ones would be good for throwing over your shoulder (but you couldn't carry the long handled down because they would certainly drag). That said - I love them. I get both weird looks and compliments on them!

Comments about Product:

This is my first attempt using my own shopping bags and so far, it's been terrific. The bags hold alot more than you'd imagine - even the clerks are surprised. And they wash up great - just toss them in a gentle cycle and hang to dry. As others have noted, the stuff sack is a bit small - holds 4 of the 5 bags. So, I just roll up the 5th bag and let it ride at the bottom of my purse.

Comments about Product:

The order was for my wife Joyce. She has used some of all the sizes that were ordered and was pleasantly surprised how the greeen bags has help keep her fruits and vegetables fresh much longer. She was, however, somewhat disappointed in her reusable bags. We still have a couple of bags that we purchased back in the 70's when there was a nation-wide campaign to bring your on bag (per Europeans). These old bags were very similar in construction but they are much larger, i.e., we can place more items in our older bags, thus fewer bags to carry in/out. The resuable bags seem to be well constructed and hopefully will be as durable as 30?? year-old bags we still have and use. Bill & Joyce Mitchell

5.0 I love these bags!

Comments about Product:

I love these bags! All of them do not fit in the stuff sack, but I use some of them just to carry books and stuff around so its ok. The straps are pretty long, the bag hangs down by my rear. I might try getting the ones with long and short handles on them if they came in a set like this. Only downside is that they obviously don't keep stuff dry in the rain, so i'll have to find other bags to use for rainy season. But I really like how they can hold an insane amount of stuff in them. I stuffed a big shoe box and a bunch of clothes and books in one and it could have fit more!

Comments about Product:

The bags are great since they take up almost no room when you have to take them to the store and it is easy to carry them in the handy hemp bag. They are strong and hold several days worth of groceries. I have already recouped several dollars toward their cost from stores who reward folks who use reusable bags. I bought the long-handled bags first and my husband did not like them. I sent them to my daughter who has to carry groceries about 1/2 mile. She loves them because it is easier to carry heavy food over your shoulder. I ordered the short-handled ones for us and my husband uses them enthusiastically.

Comments about Product:

I love the bags, plus they are so colorful. They do hold a lot and have definitely cut down on my plastic usage. My only comment is that the bag that holds the bags could be a little bigger, or like a flat or flatter type bag so that they could be stowed easier as in the pocket on the back of my seat in the car. Then they would be handier and yet out of the way.

4.0 I ordered the long handled bags in the jewel tone

Comments about Product:

I ordered the long handled bags in the jewel tone. I really like the way they fit so compactly into practically anything and I can have them ready at a moment's notice. They do have great carrying capacity, however, along with that comes some considerable stretching if you are carrying something heavy (like milk). Since you probably wouldn't carry it over your shoulder, holding them at your side ends up making the bag drag on the ground of you're not over 6 feet tall. I love them for lighter items but will probably order the shorter handled bags for grocery shopping. Other than that, no complaints! Thanks for providing a product that is helping me teach my kids about the three R's.

Comments about Product:

These are wonderful bags! To prove I really mean that, someone saw fit to steal my first set right out of my shopping cart one day; I spent some time hoping they might miraculously reappear -- they did not. So biting the proverbial bullet, I ordered aand received a second set. Since they are not free, that means my devotion to them is true. They hold an amazing amount, stretching effortlessly. Their use doesn't put more plastic in landfills or chop down more trees. Everybody should have them! What's not to like?

I am so pleased with your bags I just can't believe it. They are easy to carry (I just attach the carrying bag to my purse)and I love to see the confusion on the baggers face in the grocery store when I say "put as many things in the bag as possible". I also added a little hook and loop strap to keep them closed when transporting the bags and that works great and they fit in the carrying bag. I like the set so much I bought the second set for a 75 year old dear friend of mine who has been useing other bags (very bulky and hard to carry)and she just loves them too. I'm so glad I found you. Thanks for a great product.

I like using my Ecobags at my regular grocery store. I receive a credit to my bill for using them. I also like having them to take to the discount grocery store that is a bag it yourself type of store. They are super fast and easy to use. I also like having the peace of mind that I am not throwing away anymore plastic bags. I like the bags a lot, but I did feel that they probably would have been priced better by about ten dollars less. I think more people who are not as passionate about the environment would buy them in that instance. Maybe this would also serve to spread the awareness of the effect that plastic bags are having on the earth.

Comments about Product:

These bags are amazing! From what I read in the reviews below, I'm pretty sure some people accidentally got long-handle instead of short. The short handled ones I got are very very short, plastic-bag-handle-short. Would fit on my shoulder, but it would be an awkward way to hold them as my groceries would be in my armpit! The long handled ones look more like carrier-bag type. Sling it over your shoulder and the groceries will be just at your hip. The colors are beautiful, they really do hold so much (a bit more than double a standard bag), and I just know these five bags will hold be through any sized trip where otherwise I'd use 5-10 plastic bags. I really recommend these, plus they're prettier than canvas! The only few problems I noticed is that the bags get caught on random things in the car/at the checkout (happened once, but it was okay), people being able to see into your shopping bags (some people like their food secret I can assume? Not I. :D), and they don't "act" like plastic bags- items don't really find a neat place to rest because the weight is distributed through the string, so they're all jostled and tipped etc. It looks silly, that's all. :3 I will have these bags for a long time. I'm going to buy some for my family members for holidays, too!

Comments about Product:

I am dissapointed in the value offered by this product. I felt that these bags were very overpriced. The quality of these bags does not justify the price. I ordered the bags with the short strings, and contrary to a previous review the handles are almost impossible to put over my shoulder (and I have thin arms).

Comments about Product:

I like the bags, and I use them whenever I can. However, the handles are a bit long. I'm short (5 feet tall) and that's why I asked for short handles. It appears that either the short handles are incredibly long, or I got the wrong bags. I have tied them up so that I can use them as short handles. On the plus side, I have referred a couple of check-out people to your website because they thought my string bags were "so cute."

Comments about Product:

I love my new short handled bags. They really hold a great deal. Now I just have to train the baggers in the stores to load them up, instead of putting one or two items in like they do with plastic. I make a point of telling them that these bags will hold 40 lbs. I'm thinking of giving string bags for gifts this year to all my family members. Thanks for a great product.

Comments about Product:

Hi, I bought these bags because I was fed up with wasting so many plastic bags. Your product has been great. The colors are nice and fashionable which gets people to ask questions about them. The construction thus far appears solid. We use the bags everywhere: grocery stores, craft stores, hardware stoes and any other business that might try to offer us another unwanted bag. Overall value, off the charts, now if I could just get my friends to use them! Thank you. Kelly and Nancy White

Comments about Product:

These are an excellent choice for fairly light but bulky items like boxes or bags of stuff (pasta, tissues, cereal, rice) or produce. (They are fine for heavy items too - I carried 10 lbs of potatoes in one yesterday - but they are especially useful for accommodating the odd size/shape of produce.) The mesh is VERY stretchy which is good for items that never fit very well into plastic or paper bags anyway. I bought the short handled bags and I'm glad I did because otherwise the bags would be dragging on the floor! The long handles probably work better for people who just put a few items in the bag and throw it over their shoulder, rather than using several of them for a week's groceries. I would also HIGHLY recommend the Acme Workhorse 1500s for small and heavy items - they provide more structure, which can sometimes be a good thing. I carry both and mix and match as needed - no one says you have to stick with a single bag :-)

I have been using the bags for a couple weeks now and find them helpful for transporting smaller grocery items but not larger ones (like a cereal box, for example). They hold a lot of weight but not quantity. Maybe I should have gotten larger bags but I thought these were advertised to hold more than they do. I'll keep using them though...I keep a couple in the house and a couple in the car!

Comments about Product:

I bought the Cotton String Bag Set with Hemp StuffSack (5 bags in different colors). These bags are great. They hold a lot, and no more plastic bags! The long handles are a little awkward, but I'm getting used to them. I like how my groceries don't slide around my car like they did in those plastic bags. The people bagging groceries take a little longer to load these bags because they're not used to them. One girl insisted on putting the eggs in a plastic bag. I just took them out and gave her the plastic bag back. I'm definitely going to use these net bags every time I shop.

Comments about Product:

The product I ordered apparently isn't still available, however, it was basically this one, just without the colors. Let me say that I LOVE these bags! My husband and I counted on our grocery trip before our bags arrived and we used about 15 regular plastic bags (probably not as stuffed as they could have been, but that's what the cashier did.) On our last grocery trip we got all of our groceries (except the things that I didn't care to put in bags like gallon jugs and other overly large things like that) in FOUR of the bags. I had to bag the groceries myself so the cashier could focus on just ringing things up and because I knew I could fit everything in there. They were incredibly sturdy and I had no worries about them at all. GREAT product!

Comments about Product:

I love being able to sling 2-3 of these bags over my shoulder, which leaves my hands free for car keys. The colors are beautiful. I think my husband prefers the double handled ones (we have them in the natural color) though since he prefers to carry groceries like it was a regular plastic bag and the long handles means he has to do arm curls to keep the everything from dragging on the ground.

I love these bags. They hold so much and are easy to carry. I like the fact that all the bags can be put in one little carrier---makes it easy to keep in my trunk. I am so proud that I have taken this step to help the planet. The people at the grocery have commented on the bright colors and have asked how durable they are. So far, they have been extrememly durable. Each bag holds a lot more than the typical plastic grocery bag. Plus, I don't have plastic grocery bags all over the house.

I love, love, LOVE my colorful cotton shopping bags! They're so pretty, wonderfuly expandable and so fun to use (it's funny, yet sad, in a way, how store clerks look at me like I'm a freak when I say, "that's okay - I brought my own bags!" Some day, they'll get it . . .). I have to admit - it's taken me a few times to remember to bring them into the store with me (even when they're on the seat RIGHT NEXT TO ME in the car), but I'm learning! Your service is awesome - delivery was so quick, and it's evident that the bags, due to their sturdy construction, will last years. Already, my plastic bag stash is steadily dwindling (though now I'll have to figure out what to use for dog poop bags and small garbage can liners . . . any ideas?). Thanks for the great product, the quick service and very reasonable prices. I'll definitely order from you again!

We are very happy with the bags and plan to order more. What would make them better is a way to snap them shut at the handle. When the baggers put them on the carry out cart they tend to open up. We do wrap the handles though each other and that helps some. But snaps would really be great. Bruce S.

I like my new bags, but I have to get in the habit of taking them with me to the store. Have had them for 3 weeks, and have only remembered once. I went to Penney's last night, and thought (after being handed a plastic bag), why didn't I bring one of my string bags? We will have to get used to them at the grocery store too. They hold so much, some of the bags got too heavy. I'm sure after some adjustments, we'll remember to use them all the time, and appreciate how they save the environment, and also clutter at our house.

I have used the bags twice. Once at a major chain grocery store in our area that has it's own bagger. He was thrown off by the length of the handles on my bags.

Plus no guilt of have to dispose of plastic grocery bags.
