    "Seriously Green" -- USA Today

    Two years of hard work in the making, we're very proud of our first tote bags made from recycled plastic bottles & containers. Based on our EarthTote™ and Dual-Handled Tote (both customer favorites & proven winners) but made with "next generation" recycled PET fabric that is as strong as it is sustainable. Plus, since we donate 1% of sales to support the environment, these have to be, hands down, the most eco-friendly reusable bags you can find anywhere. It's all part of our obsession to offer the most sustainable bags available through our reuseit line.

    FYI: The Recycled PET EarthTote is very sturdy, so it's easy to load. While the PET EarthTote will not stand completely upright on its own, the Original EarthTote will because it has a slightly more rigid coating. Both have the same footprint as a standard paper grocery bag.

    Another great product from our award-winning reuseit line (formerly Acme Bags).
More Product Details

16" H x 12" W X 8" D
14" handles (7" loop)

Design & Functionality
In addition to being made from 50% recycled plastic bottles & containers, this bag is practical, innovative & built to last. It's ideally suited for grocery shopping (same footprint as paper grocery bag), so it's a smart way to cut down on plastic & paper grocery bag consumption. Features comfy, flat-webbed handles & folds up just like a paper bag for easy transport. Rugged & great looking.

Materials
We’ve done our research to ensure this material is made from recycled plastic bottles, so you can be sure you’re getting a sustainable shopping bag. Unlike cheaper versions of recycled PET, our "next generation" Recycled PET fabric, blended with nylon, is as beautiful & strong as it is sustainable. Using recycled PET is smart - it cuts down on waste & minimizes damage to the environment by conserving oil, energy & non-renewable resources. In the U.S. alone, over 45 billion plastic containers ended up in landfills in 2006.

Check out our growing line of products made from recycled content, including recycled PET.

Sustainability
Our wide range of reusable bags are built to last, which saves both money and natural resources. This bag can help you eliminate thousands of plastic bags over its lifetime, and choosing products made from recycled PET promotes a more sustainable path for plastic.

5.0 Can they last TOO long?

Comments about Product:

These bags are made so well, I've had them for maybe 5 years, use them 2x per week. They've been loaded with groceries, washed, brought apple & pumpkin picking and show NO wear! You'll never need another grocery bag!

5.0 Awesome

Comments about Product:

I love these bags. They are very heavy weight and can hold anything I am strong enough to carry when I leave the grocery store. I bought my first ones 4 years ago and they are still going strong... I use them at least once a week for errands or grocery store stops. The 4 year old bags are just starting to show signs of wear... very, very tiny holes. I bet I'll get another 4 years out of them... just think of all the plastic bags I will have saved!!!!

Comments about Product:

more capacious and stronger than other 'grocery'-type

bags made from recycled materials. Easily carries modest shop with heavier items like rice milk. Haven't stained or sullied it yet so don't yet know how it holds up -- but it feels very durable. My wife covets it.

Comments about Product:

I bought several of these bags a few years ago, for myself and my friends and family. They are sturdy, washable and look nice for a long time. Grocery baggers tell me they love them because they have some structure to them and are easy to fill. I recently bought more bags because I keep giving them to friends to try.

Comments about Product:

The description says they do not stand on their own but they do stand up if you put them in the space where the plastic bags hang at the grocery store. They are nice and large and hold a lot. I hope they wear a little longer than the 3 years I got out of the first set. I get asked a frequently where I bought them.

5.0 Great Bag!

Comments about Product:

This is a great bag. I use it for every type of shopping. It is very sturdy, I have carried 5 2-liters of soda in this bag. I like that it stands up like a paper sack. My old Earthtote bags don't do this, I think because they are not made from recycled materials. I have been using my old bags for several years of heavy use and the bottom seams are starting to show wear. Hopefully these new bags will stand up as long. The price is a little higher than I would like to pay but when you consider the years of use from each bag I guess they are worth it.

5.0 Great Reusable Grocery Bag

Comments about Product:

This bag holds it's form much like a traditional paper grocery bag and has a convenient pocket on the outside (I use it for my receipts and (guilty pleasure) lottery tickets). Most of my bags are the Acme Dual-Handled Totes and I am partial to them because I am used to them. Overall, it is a great quality bag and a welcome addition to the mix.

5.0 Tops for Grocery shopping

Comments about Product:

This is my fav Grocery bag - size is fantastic. I'll bring this & I'm always asked if I want the rest of my items in plastic. I say no because everything will fit in this bag. They never seem to believe me until the end. I'd prefer to have one heavy bag instead of multiple bags. This holds the weight. For everyday smaller shopping I recommend the Workhorse.

Comments about Product:

I get compliments from the bag packers at the supermarket all the time. They and I appreciate the fact that this bag holds it's shape and is basically a nylon version of the classic brown grocery bag but it is even sturdier than its inspiration. I bring this bag when I KNOW that I'm going shopping for groceries. Otherwise I keep a ultra compact super lightweight bag in my bag for spontaneous shopping.

Comments about Product:

Love it! I used this to hold my carry on things for a flight and it was perfect. I could put things I needed easy access to (like my boarding pass) in the outer pocket. And the bag stands up, so it was easy to find things during the flight. It fits under the seat in front, which is necessary during take off and landing. Large enough and sturdy enough for kid's art supplies, snacks, books, a light jacket, and a purse. Great bag!

Comments about Product:

These bags are super sturdy, fold easily and wash up great. The handles are just the right length for toting heavy groceries. You can fill these bags to the brim, they are so strong, you are only limited by the weight you can carry. Outlast my other, fabric-style, totes by far.

The back of my car no longer looks as if it belongs to a bag lady on wheels :) Our local check-out people like them also and have offered their thanks for providing an easy-to-use bag that stands up for filling. Highly recommend.

5.0 In Love with these Bags

Comments about Product:

I love loave lerve these bags. Now, for the first time, I can bag my groceries in bags that stand up instead of flopping over at the wrong time. I use the self-checkout and these bags will stand in the plastic bag dispenser frames that are designed into the area. I also carry a big insulated bag by California Innovators for things that need to stay cold, and with these wonderful PET bags and that one I am set for grocery shopping! The only enhancement I would appreciate would be a pair of long straps to tie them closed. Get these bags and you will love them too.

5.0 great grocery bags

Comments about Product:

I purchased and use these bags primarily for grocery shopping as what makes them work well for that (and not quite as well for say, mall shopping) is their stiffer fabric that folds but doesn't smoosh down into a very small size. For groceries, excellent. Stong, easy to stand and load the groceries, and the side pocket is handy.

5.0 ACME Bag

Comments about Product:

I bought several to hand to friends to encourage them to be green. I use them myself and find them perfect for grocery shopping, as well as lots of other uses. I put my hiking boots in them so that I can change into them once I arrive at my hiking destination. I use them to carry picnic stuff to the park and beach towels to the beach. They are the right size, sturdy, light, functional and attractive. And they wash well. I keep them in the trunk of my car so that I'm never without them when grocery shopping. They are great and everyone should use them. Thank You - N. Osellame

5.0 The PERFECT grocery bag

Comments about Product:

My husband and I have used these for a couple of years as our grocery bags, and there is nothing better. They are easily packed by the checkers, as they mimic the paper bags, they are supremely sturdy, will hold any weight that will fit inside, and hold up well. The store checkers often admire them and ask where we got them--and they see a lot of bags! I can't imagine how many paper or plastic bags we have replaced with these. I have bought many as gifts, and people love them. I use my embroidery sewing machine to monogram a set--the black ones look elegant and are great for travel or to-and-from the office.

Comments about Product:

I bought these as holiday presents for coworkers, plus one for myself, two years ago. This bag was so much easier to use than less expensive, smaller bags (for purchase at checkouts everywhere) that I came back for two more. Checkout staff seem to be able to pack these better than other reusable bags and the handles can support a good size load -- saving me trips from the car to my second floor unit. My only suggestion at improvement: a lower price would be welcome.

Comments about Product:

I LOVE these bags! We've given these as gifts to family and friends. I've actually used mine so much that I wore them out! That's not a quality defect, I've really put them through a lot of hard work and they've stood the test of time. Now it's time for new ones. These are sturdy. The wide gusset lets them hold a variety of items with plenty of room. The long handles are a big help, too. Plus, as others have said, the baggers in the store love these, too, since they're sturdier than any of the plastic pollution they use. A wonderful investment!

These bags are fantastic! And the baggers in the stores like them because they stand up straight.

5.0 I do like the new recycled PET Acme Bags

Comments about Product:

I do like the new recycled PET Acme Bags. They look good and hold several items. I ordered them to replace some cotton bags that I got a few years ago. One thing that I'm disappointed in is that they do not stand open like a paper bag, as advertised. That was one of the appealing features to me, since the soft cotton ones tended to collapse so easily. But I will certainly cope with the new ones. Regarding the PET produce bags, I do like them a lot compared to the old cotton mesh bags. The personnel at grocery checkouts are able to see and scan the items, which was not so easy with the old ones. Overall, I sincerely like Reuseable Bags. I am amazed at the number of plastic and paper bags I used to bring home! Nowadays I very rarely bring such a bag home.

Comments about Product:

I purchased 4 of these bags about 2 months ago after feeling fed-up with other PET bags that come from the grocery stores. These bags are in another class to themselves. They are sturdy, yet soft to the feel, stand up on their own when packing them (grocery store packers love them...and thus treat me better!). They fold up easily and stow-away perfect in the car. I even bring them to Farmers Market now because they are so much more functional and sturdy. They are worth every penny of their high price and more! My sanity around grocery shopping/bags has been returned with grace ten fold, and that alone was worth the price of the bags. For shopping at grocery stores nothing even compares with these bags. Throw 4-6 in the back of your car and you are set for a long, long time!

5.0 I'm delighted with these bags!

Comments about Product:

I'm delighted with these bags! They are large, sturdy and easy to load. The handles are secure, so there are no worries about dropping a fully-loaded bag. I didn't think I cared about an outside pocket, but it is surprisingly useful for coupons & frequent buyer cards (I carry them on a separate ring rather than on my keychain.) With no advertising on the bags, I feel free to use them anywhere. Although the total of my order for a 1/2 dozen bags might have seemed steep, I have no complaints. The quality is excellent and I expect to be using them for years to come. Thanks for a quality product!

Comments about Product:

I am glad to have new reusuable bags to replace my very old and battered set, but I was a bit disappointed with these bags when they came. They are somewhat smaller than I expected and much more floppy. Although some of the descriptions I read indicated that they stand on their own and hold their shape, I have trouble getting them to do so for more than a few seconds without holding up one side. I also wish the PET bags came with the dual handle option - the short handles are not a good length for me. I think I will use these bags often and they will meet my needs satisfactorily, but in the future, I would purchase a different kind of bag that is bigger, has longer handles, and holds its shape easily on its own.

Comments about Product:

I'd been using green bags purchased at Publix for my grocery shopping, but I wanted larger and sturdier versions to expand their usefulness, versatility and longevity. The PET EarthTote met my requirements and has exceeded my expectations. I especially like the side pockets for holding flat or flimsy items. I keep several of them in the kitchen, the garage and in both vehicles so there's no excuse not to use them for just about anything. I've gotten many compliments the bags and several inquiries about where to buy them. I have just one suggestion for improvement: the EarthTote needs something that will keep its bottom flat when placed on a level surface so it will stand upright. To solve that problem, I recycled the featherweight bottom liners of the Publix green bags into my EarthTotes. Voila!

Comments about Product:

I am absolutely delighted with the collection of reusable bags, SIGG water bottles, and sandwich wraps that I've purchased and "gifted" loved ones with! They work well, wear well, and contribute to a neighborly sense of loving our planet together. My newest bags add up to further gifts, replacements for bags I've packed and given away, and a "stash" for further gifting. These are wonderful, green, and inspiring daily items to be handling and contemplating WHY I'm using-----thank you for a positive-only business history!

Comments about Product:

Awesome bags. Super easy to store when not in use, super easy to stuff to the gills. Amazing how much they hold. Also, I got mine about a year ago, and they get some heavy usage, but they still look brand new and show no sign of wear-and-tear. These things might outlast me.

Comments about Product:

These are fantastic. Great for shopping with kids, because I can fit the same amount of groceries in six of these bags that would fill about 10-12 paper bags. If the cart is full, you can sling them over your shoulder (not a great option with a paper sack). They can hold a ton of weight. I've had them stuffed with cans to the point where I can't hardly lift them, but they hold up perfectly. Someone recently stole mine from my cart!!! Who does that? Anyhow, I can't shop without them, so I'm back for more. Excellent product.

5.0 I truly love my new ACME BAGS - Recycled PET Earth

Comments about Product:

I truly love my new ACME BAGS - Recycled PET Earth Totes! They are my BFF!! I use these totes for the grocery store, drugstore, picking up the mail and magazines from my cluster mail box, any type of retail shopping, carrying things to and from the car, carrying things to and from upstairs and down, road trip access bags and even once for a hair protector in the rain! These are the best totes I have ever purchased or seen. Unlike many other recycled totes, which are also great for the environment. These offer the sturdiness and shape of a "framed paper bag with shape and storage capacity to get so much in them and stay organized, unlike other totes, where everything slides together, much like plastic bags....I won't even go there! I consider myself to be a "eco-friendly frugalista". I was lucky enough to have purchased them on sale, but even at regular price, you can count on this tote to last indefinetly, it is that well constructed with quality, form and function!

Comments about Product:

Fantastic! I absolutely love these bags. They are perfect for the grocery shopping. They are about the same size as a paper grocery bag, but they hold so much. And the handles are a huge bonus. They are made very well, and I love the fact that these are made from recycled materials. Also, the fact that they have a flat bottom and are free-standing makes them easy to fill...The grocery store checkers and baggers appreciate this! I have always used my own bags, but the ones I used before were canvas and would stand up on their own, which made it difficult for the grocery store employees. They love seeing my bags now! They fold up compactly, wipe clean, and are simply the best! I tell everyone about these bags, and your website!! Thanks again. P.S. The value of the sets is great! I bought the set, and love the vegie bags, and bought an extra couple of the shopping bags to complete my set. Thanks!

Comments about Product:

This was my second order for Earth Totes. The first order was for the cordura nylon bags, and this order was for the recycled PET Earth Totes. These are really fabulous bags, and they were a great bargain during the recent sale. Earth Totes are spacious, tough, and a lot safer to carry than brown paper bags. I stuff them full of paper and cardboard recylables, so now I have to make fewer trips to the recycling center. Never a rip, and easy to clean too. I'll be using these bags for many years to come, and I will feel really good about it too. I love some of the lightweight, foldable bags as well, but you can't beat the Earth Totes for really big jobs. They also happen to be quite good looking, so you can use them in public for carrying anything that needs strength. Great product!

This holds twice as much and there's no worry about moisture and is extremely strong and sturdy.. We always keep one in the car . Great to pick up packages and mail at the post office, carry to the fruit store and know there's always room for more than you thought you'd need. Couldn't do without it.

Comments about Product:

It pleasing to see plastic being reused in a positive way, the shiny slick color is pleasing, the capacity and uprightness is as good as a paper grocery bag. My only hesitancy, and thus the 4 star rating is that the handles are not as well sewn on as they are with the hemp and cotton canvas bags, which have an "X" where the handle meets the opening. I will watch to see if they loosen under stress, and need resewing.

Comments about Product:

I ordered 3 large grocery-type bags in dark sage green. When they arrived they appeared black. I didn't complain as it wasn't important, however, after a couple of weeks 2 of the bags have turn green, but the third appears black [I say "appears" because if I hold it in the light just right, I can see a greenish tint]. So my question is: why did 2 of them change color, but not the third? I like the bags a lot, I'm just puzzled.

5.0 I LOVE these bags. They are so strong!

Comments about Product:

I LOVE these bags. They are so strong! I keep them in the back of my car and they are great for the grocery store and warehouse clubs. You can put very heavy things inside and they can take it. They are about the size of a brown paper grocery bag, which is perfect. Oftentimes I find the size and shapes of some of my other bags to be too big or too small. These are just right!

Comments about Product:

I love these bags. They are very large...able to hold a lot of groceries. The flat bottom makes it easy to pack them. They seem to be very sturdy. I really like them because they help the environment twice...by eliminating plastic grocery bags and by using old soda bottles to make the fabric.

I have been using my reusable bags from you for a few years now. Someone always wants to know where I got them. Not only are they helping the environment but they are making people think about the choices they have. I can't afford to go solar but by using "smart light bulbs" and "smart bags" I can do something. Thank you for making a product that lets me do my part and for a product I am proud to use.

Comments about Product:

We have been using our new reusable bags for our purchases at WalMart. We buy our groceries there. We love the durability and the amount of room the bags have. We are very pleased with the quality. However the cashiers are not happy that we bring our own bags. They say they take longer to put groceries in because they don't fit on the hooks of the plastic bag turntable. They inform me that if I buy the reusable WalMart bags that they have loops that fit on their bag hooks. Now I have to place one at a time on top of the turntable and it takes longer for them. It doesn't bother me but so far none of the cashiers I have had likes my bags. They agree it is a good idea to use the bags. WalMart bags are shorter and therefore has less room and the quality is not there. I plan to continue to use my bags despite the grumblings of the cashiers. Keep up the good work.

Comments about Product:

Picked up 5 bags originally and just ordered several more for the other car and scooter. We like the easy clean-up for the containers of chopped fruit that have a habit of leaking. The paper bag look (and no logos) is much appreciated. Check-out clerks usually give us compliments on the bags and they see plenty. Highly recommended! PS. Why isn't there an 'excellent' option for rating? We would use it!

I got this bag as a gift from reusablebags.com and it is a very nice bag. In comparison to the ACME Bag EarthTote (not the recycled PET version) this one pales sadly. But, trust me, if recycled PET is important to you and/or there is a price difference that makes this bag within your budget instead of the regular EarthTote version, buy it. You will like it and be none the wiser.

Comments about Product:

The bags are absolutely the best. They fold nicely they hold an enormous amount of groceries and they are tough. I am new to using reusable bags and wasn't sure if i would remember to use them or not. It hasn't been a problem at all. i bought 4 bags and keep them in my car front seat. On my way in i grab them and when i unload, i put them right back in my car. In fact, they come in handy in a another way, too. I have an envirosax in my purse for everyday errands (it folds up to about 1"x1" - its awesome). As I get in the car between errands, i put my "stuff" in an ACME bag in the car to free up the smaller bag for the next errand. when i am finished, instead of having ten plastic bags from 10 different stores, they are all in one ACME bag ready to easily carry in the house.

We got this as a free bonus, and while it's an attractive bag that folds very small for storage, it doesn't stand up on its own as well as the EarthTote.

I love these bags! They're structured enough not to fall over if you pack them properly but flexible enough to stuff odd-shaped things into without breaking. $50.00 of groceries used to fill 8 plastic bags - now I can buy twice as much yet never need more than two. The exterior pocket is handy for stuffing those little extras like greeting cards or candy bars. A definite thumbs-up.

5.0 These bags are great!

Comments about Product:

These bags are great! They are the size of a standard paper bag, and they do hold their shape when you are filling them. I use them for my grocery shopping and support the bottoms while I hold the handle when I use them for heavier loads. I like them because unlike paperbags you can put wet items (like drippy produce) and they don't come apart and all you have to do is turn them over and they dry fastI like the fact that they are paperbag coloured personally. Though I first balked at the price, since i have received them and noticed how durable they are i realize they will be around for a long time and the fact that i dont have paperbag tree killing guilt makes them totally worth while! My only critque of this site is that people should see how much shipping is BEFORE they decide to purchase NOT that shipping was expensive, it is just some people like to know ALL the costs upfront.

5.0 These bags are excellent

Comments about Product:

These bags are excellent. I've had them for a few months. I can load them up with heavy stuff and never had a problem yet. They are big like large paper bags but because they are sturdy and have handles so weight is never an issue. I can stuff them full and end up with my whole grocery supply in 3 or 4 bags (vs. two or three times that for paper/plastic). Highly recommended. One tip - unless you walk to where you shop, keep the bags in your car so you'll always have them. Also, if you keep/make a grocery list, add a note to remember the bags. It takes a while to get used to using them if you are new to bringing your own bags. And it is no fun to buy them and only remember in line that you forgot them.

It beats buying another plastic bin at a similar price for the same task. I even take one to the mall to elinate all those paper bags. We keep them in both cars and folded up near the doors (at least the ones that aren't being used for something else). I recommend these bags to anyone as a good value.

Comments about Product:

I bought 3 recycled PET earth tote bags and have gotten groceries twice since the bags arrived. I love them. I do get a few interesting looks as I'm bagging, but I think that's just because people can't believe the amount of stuff that the bag can handle. I stick them in the cart and pack away and because they replicate a brown paper bag, it's incredibly easy to pack. And they don't tip as easy in the car. I typically use 5 brown paper bags and a couple of plastic but can fit all that into these 3. Handles are very sturdy. My biggest complaint is my own issue -- I forget to bring along the bags when I do other shopping! It's just getting use to carrying my own bags. I am thinking about buying two more so my husband and I can keep one in each of our cars. I had no problems with ordering or recieving the shipment. It was great to be able to track the package. I am so happy that I found this site. I'm sure we'll be purchasing more in the future.

They feel nice and sturdy, which is important for me since I tend to load them up. I've had these particular bags for almost a year now, and there's no sign of wear on them at all. Great bag for groceries, beach, almost anything.

5.0 I have returned today to buy two more of these bag

Comments about Product:

I have returned today to buy two more of these bags. They are fantastic! They are super durable and hold a ton. I always encourage baggers to super stuff them and the baggers are consistently amazed at how much these bags will hold. When I read reviews that said that folks got complimented on these bags and had cashiers and baggers ask them where they got them, I thought, "Yeah, right, not at my commissary (military grocery store)." Well, it happens all the time! The folks at the local natural foods store are impressed by these, too. I can't recommend these bags highly enough.

Comments about Product:

I love this bag. It is heavy duty yet attractive. I used it to buy clothes for myself and I was very surprised on how much it carried. What would normally take 3 large plastic bottle, fit easily in to this one. There is a smaller side pocket for smaller items or my keys. I love this bag!

Comments about Product:

This tote rocks!! I was skeptical at first (I have canvas tote bags I got for free as promotional gifts from companies) but the square shape mimicks paper-grocery bags and really makes it SO much easier to hold groceries!! I am completely sold now! We even featured various totes and bags from Reusablebags.com at our Green Drinks meeting!!

This is my second purchase of your reusable bags. I did notice, however, that the new bags are of a different material than my first purchase - they're not as thick. Fortunately, they still stand up making it easy to fill them. I'm extremely happy with my bags and take them with me whenever I go to the grocery store. Thanks.

I got one of these to hold my recycling. It works perfectly; although I may need to get another. I have had to wash it out with soapy water once, but it is holding up very well.

Love the strength of this bag. And you can't beat that it's using all of those plastic bottles! Only problem is the handles are a bit short if you want to carry on your shoulders. If there is a bit of a walk back to your car or to your apartment, a longer handle is better.

5.0 We are very happy with the ACME Recycled PET Earth

Comments about Product:

We are very happy with the ACME Recycled PET EarthTotes we ordered, and highly recommend them. As many of the other reviewers noted, they are very strong, comfortable to carry, and really do carry a ton of groceries...Just one of these bags can hold what used to take 3 to 4 plastic bags. So now, not only are we not using any plastic bags anymore, but it makes loading groceries into the car and bringing them into the house so much easier, because it takes fewer trips. We bought 10 bags, but usually end up using 6-8 bags (for a family for 4: 2 adults and 2 children). One note: When these bags are fully packed to the top, they can be a bit heavy. I can carry 2-3 bags in each hand at a time, but my wife can usually only carry 1 in each hand...So, you may want to order a few more than you think you might need because you may have to pack them half-full.

Comments about Product:

These bags are great -- they're the same size as regular brown paper grocery bags, but much, much stronger, so you can really pack them, and not have to worry about holding on to the bottom. Because you can put so much in them, they may be heavier, but you don't have to make so many tripes from the car to the house! The first one I got (as a gift) was one of the non-recycled bags, and I think those ones actually stand up on their own a little better than these do (the recycled ones tend to collapse a little bit, so you have to hold one side when you're loading them). It's not a deal-breaker, though. It's great not to have all those paper and plastic grocery bags clogging up my pantry, and I find I use them for much more than just groceries -- I put dry cleaning in them, and take them with me when I'm running regular errands.

I like this bag so far, it's very large and holds alot of stuff, and strong. I do like that is stands up on it's own, compared to my chico bags which I have to usually hold or hang on the little plastic bag holders but they fall off. The only thing I don't like is that when you fill it the bottom just falls down, not like a regular paper bag where the bottom of the bag stays flat when you pick it up. So I have put some cardboard in the bottom to make it stay flat on the bottom and hold my groceries up.

And they clean up really well.The color is a perfect paper bag brown.I keep them in my car so they are always there for whatever needs toting.

Comments about Product:

These bags do stand up on their own which was a requirement for me, and why it took me so long to buy some. I almost bought they originals but am sooo happy that I waited for these that are made from recycled plastic! Could they be more perfect?! And the outside pockets are great for storing your cotton mesh produce bags!

Comments about Product:

If you are tired of seeing plastic bags all over our neighborhoods, parks and highways...these are the bags for you! They are strong enough to be loaded with canned goods, yet they are lite and fairly compact. The handles are great and the size is perfect! For me, a big part of enjoying these bags is knowing that I am helping reduce the waste in our environment!

I'm mindful to put them back in my car after I empty them so that I can use them everywhere I would normally take a purchase out of the store in plastic. The most affordable way to reduce waste I can think of.

Comments about Product:

We actually bought several of these as Christmas gifts to distribute to family and friends. Our small step toward reducing waste. None of the recipients had seen the EarthTote before and responded quite positively toward its design, materials and function. My qualifier to all was "if you will not use this give it back". No one has yet returned it. Out of our total order we kept two for ourselves. It's rare for us to go to the grocery store and only come away using one shopping bag. Plus with two hands on two sets of handles to carry them out... it just makes sense. Another important factor in the design of this product is that it is very strong so you can carry much more than what either a plastic or paper bag ever could. Also our Kroger store credits us a nickel for using a reusable bag rather than one of their's - a great incentive. Before purchase I researched many other reusable bags types from several companies and this one appeared the best overall product. While I have not invested in your other bag designs, I am very impressed with all aspects of the EarthTote. It really has the best overall characteristics for basic grocery/market shopping. It has exceeded my expectations. A really well thought out and manufactured "smart" product. Oh, GREAT color too - paper bag brown! Well done.

We are very pleased with our PET bags. They hold as much, if not a little more, than a typical paper bag and they are much easier to carry than paper or plastic bags.

The biggest plus that we see is that we are no longer contributing to filling up landfills with paper and plastic. They are fantastic!

I was very happy to send these durable, quality, and recycled bags that amazingly are the same size as a standard grocery bag and even feature a handy front pocket for shopping lists, cards, coupons and other incidentals.

Comments about Product:

We have been enjoying our ACME totes, and were thrilled you've added these to the ACME line. It's gratifying to use a fabric made from old plastic bottles, which after only one recycling, usually end up either in landfill or in an incinerator (or even more horrifyingly, in our waterways).They are the same size as the heavy duty ACME bags, but much, much lighter in weight. Whereas the other bags feel as though they are made of heavily coated canvas, these feel like nylon and are even more of a breeze to tote along on our bikes. While the other ones are a lovely mustard shade (they really are gorgeous), these are very close to a paper bag colour, so it is all the more witty to pull them out in the check-out queue, when one is asked "paper or plastic," after when we say "no, thank you!" [By the way, they don't stand up as easily as the other ones, but neither do paper bags.]

Comments about Product:

These bags are the best. I chose the brown ones due to the sale price, plus I got a kick out of how much they looked like brown paper grocery bags, which you hardly ever see anymore. I have had the best experiences using them. The clerks always comment, sometimes other customers in line do also. One clerk remembers me & the bags, & likes the way the bags stay standing when open. I read in some of the other reviews that the bags don't stay open but my experience has been that they do with a little help. They load up easily, & hold a lot. They also feel good to touch, I love telling people that they are made with plastic bottles. You'd never guess that. They have made great gifts, also. They feel like they will last forever. Highly recommended.

Comments about Product:

LOVE LOVE LOVE the PET Earth Tote. They scream practicality from the durable yet flexible enough to fold and squish well fabric to the don't care if it is spotlessly clean paper bag brown color. They stand on their own with little in them making them easy to pack and hold an immense amoung of groceries or whatever else I may be packing. In fact, right now I have all six of mine packed up to go on a car trip and it keeps things perfectly sorted so there is no rummaging or forgotten gifts at different stops along the way.

Comments about Product:

We love these bags. We can get about $90 worth of groceries in our four bags. Our four bags fit nicely in the grocery cart. And then I love that we don't have a bunch of plastic bags all over the trunk our car to unload. I can usually carry three full bags at once and my husband loves them because he can carry all of groceries in the house in one trip!

Comments about Product:

My husband does the grocery shopping because of my pain. At first he didn't like to bring in the bags. Now he saves a big 3 cents for every bag. He sees this is adding up. Plus they are larger then the paper bags and stronger. You can fill these up and they aren't going to break like a paper or plastic bag. I wouldn't fill them up all the way because then I can't carry them in. The only problem is the people baging are like. What do I do with this? Nothing hard about that it's a bag. We also use the produce bags and other totes. I love them.

5.0 These bags are so useful

Comments about Product:

These bags are so useful. Their appearance is very nice, looking a lot like a very "upscale" paperbag, & the pocket on the outside is handy for lists & receipts. Despite what some of the other reviews state, I find that they do stand up mostly on their own, much more so than most cloth bags, negating the need for me to have to help the checker by holding the bag open. That was always an issue with the canvas/cotton tote bags I used to use. These bags also fold in a close approximation of the old paper bags. Altogether one of the best alternatives I have ever used.

Comments about Product:

I bought ACME shopping bag sets for everyone in my family at Christmas last year, including myself. Best investment I've ever made. The big bags hold so much stuff so easily, and since they stand up on their own, food's not rolling around in my trunk. I keep one of the small pouch bags in my purse at all times--great way to always be able to say "no" to another plastic bag whenever I shop. Just bought the recycled PET bag for my husband to keep in his car. He loves it. It's great when a product is not only better for the planet but so much better than the alternative in terms of performance, too.

5.0 The absolute best bags for grocery shopping

Comments about Product:

The absolute best bags for grocery shopping. Shaped and sized like a paper grocery bag, flat on bottom so easy to load, boxboys and girls are familiar with the shape already. Extremely strong, fold up flat like paper bags so it's easy to take several to the store. With 6-7 of these, I can do even the BIG grocery shopping and fit it all in. My husband keeps a couple in his car for his grocery stops on the way home too, and is equally impressed by them, won't use anything else now. They seem a bit expensive but I don't doubt that they will last for many years, so that I will still be using them long after forgetting what the original cost was.

Comments about Product:

I recently received my order for two reusable bags, the ones that resemble a paper grocery bag, and I'm here to say I love them. I had earlier ordered some for a friend and she was so excited to have them that I ordered some for myself. (Hers were a birthday gift...mine were a must-have gift to myself) I use them each time I go to the market for groceries and they have been holding up very well. They even stand upright when you set them down (like paper sacks), and fold easily to return to the car for the next shopping trip. Great product, great gifts too.

The sackers are always impressed with how much they hold. The bags easily hold a lot of groceries and the handles are strong and comfortable no matter how much stuff you put in them. This is so much better than those dozens of plastic bags you end up with if you don't take your own bags, and much friendlier to our planet. I highly recommend these bags and I'm planning on buying some for relatives for Christmas gifts!

Comments about Product:

Size excellent. Durability appears good so far. Like the outer pocket. Wife very happy about shape (square bottoms) - she worked at a grocery in high school and knows something about bags, and she likes these better than I do. (My one reservation: bags do not, in fact, stay open when empty - they tend to collapse. My wife says this is not a problem, and perhaps she's right - a more rigid bag might wear worse, and packing isn't hindered much if at all.) I haven't packed one of these; the baggers at our groceries like 'em and fill 'em all the way up - which can make them quite heavy. Not sure whether lack of rigidity might make them fall over in trunk on drive home - hasn't happened yet though.

In addition to being better for the environment (our primary reason for purchase), our grocery store gives us a kick-back for each bag that we bring in and use to take our groceries home.

The kids love giving them to the cashier and we feel like we're really doing our part to help the environment, especially since they are PET.

The bag I ordered is great. It is high quality and large enough for my needs with strong handles and a side pocket. I keep it folded up in the compartment under my front seat middle armrest. I like to do my shopping as I drive home from work to save gas -- I rarely do shopping on the weekends if I can avoid making special trips. I go by two different grocery stores on my way home from work. I live alone and I don't mind stopping by the grocery stores a couple of times a week to pick up fresh items. I just keep the bag in the small carrying basket when I enter the store and use it at checkout or self checkout when I leave. I have had a couple of people ask me about it in the store. I tell them to go to reusablebags.com. Thanks for helping me help the future. Ed in Georgia

Because they keep collapsing it's awkward to pack and almost impossible to do it neatly.

I like the size of the bags which hold a good amount of groceries. The bags are flimsy until full; therefore the person bagging needs to hold open the top to get groceries in until it begins to fill up.

Comments about Product:

I really liked dealing with reusablebags.com. They were efficient and communicative. So far, I also enjoy using the Acme PET EarthTotes. The dark sage is a lot darker than I thought it would be, but the bags hold so much more than I think they will. My one annoyance with the bags is that they definitely do NOT stand up. I read another review that said they did, and I am convinced that that particular person was reviewing a different bag. These are quite floppy. Overall, I'm satisfied, but if I had to do it again, I would probably get bags that stood up by themselves. I'm a bit klutzy, and trying to hold the bag upright while shoving things in it has been ... challenging.

Comments about Product:

I bought this bag to use along with a few Reisenthel Mini Maxi Shoppers. When I use this tote for heavier items, the shorter handles are great; when I use it for lighter items, the longer handles are comfortable over-the-shoulder. Also good for carrying books. Love it.

5.0 I find that these bags are a real work horse

Comments about Product:

I find that these bags are a real work horse. The material is strong and the construction is solid. No matter what I put in them, they hold up perfectly. If I could change anything at all, I would put a rigid bottom in of cardboard or something - not because the bag needs them but because the baggers at the store don't seem to be able to pack them well yet.

Comments about Product:

I am so glad I decided to purchase these bags. It is amazing how many plastic bags you can use in one trip to the store and these really make a difference. We keep these in the trunk of our car and use them for all shopping trips - not just the grocery store. I also love that they are made out of recycled material! Such a small thing to do and it make such a difference!

Sometimes, ordering sight unseen, you wonder what you will get. The bags are exceptional quality and exceeded my expectations! I really like the appearance; the bags are strong and durable.

Comments about Product:

I like the bag overall. It is very durable and fits lots of items. The description led me to believe it would stand up on its own like a brown paper bag, but the sides do not stay up when nothing is in the bag. Despite this, I will buy more of these bags.

Comments about Product:

I love the appearance of these bags, plus the added bonus of the outer pocket for keys, credit card, etc. It is true what other users have mentioned about the bags not standing up on their own, which, to my mind, makes grocery cashiers less likely to help pack them. But that's okay...I can pack 'em myself! I'm a sucker for the tough good looks of this style.

Comments about Product:

I really like the durability of these bags as well as the little pocket on the outside but I really wish there was a firm element in the bottom to prevent it from sagging. Also, they do claim to stand up on their own but I can't get mine to. If there is an insert that you sell please let me know because I will otherwise have to rig something up. Thanks!

Comments about Product:

Love these. Got 4 of them and they are more than enough to do my weekly shopping. They are just the right weight....easy to pack together to toss in the back of my car between shopping trips, yet heavy enough to tote whatever I buy (liter of olive oil plus a gallon of milk, bag of cat food, etc etc). Much sturdier than canvas bags. The handles are sooooo strong. Makes toting all the stuff back to my apartment easier than ever. They really are great. They have exceded my expectations. Good job!

Comments about Product:

In an effort to get other people involved in the "no plastic bags" movement, I have given the ACME bags as gifts to many people. As many others have commented, these do NOT stand on their own the way the ACME heavy-duty bags do. However, these are made from recycled material, which is great. I have found that I prefer the PET recycled ACME bags when clothing shopping etc, and the heavy-duty bags when grocery shopping.

Comments about Product:

We got these bags to save the earth from all the plastic bags that we can't reuse fast enough, leaving us with a pile of plastic bags that we don't want to just throw into a landfill. We have used our new ACME bags twice now and we LOVE them. They fit so much more than a regular paper bag, because they are so sturdy. We highly recommend them, I got the deal where you get 4 bags and a few produce bags and whatnot, and I am not dissappointed with any of it. I hope that this teaches my children about the importance of reducing our waste also! Thannks for the great product!

Comments about Product:

The only complaint I have with these bags is that I wish they had a better "framework" so that they were stiffer when they were packed. They are so soft that they don't stand up like a paper grocery sack and it can be difficult to pack them at the store. However, they are a very good size (can hold the equivalent of about 3 plastic grocery bags), extremely durable, and look great. EVERY time I use them I get asked about them and I pass on the name of your site as a good place to purchase them.

Comments about Product:

Love the bags, the material, the color, etc. I do notice that due to their length, they sometimes graze the ground. Perhaps shortened handles would help? It would also be nice to have shoulder straps included so one would have the option of carrying by hand, or putting over the shoulder. It helps with larger loads to be able to carry multiple bags that way. That said, they're terrific, sturdy, attractive, large and uncumbersome.

Comments about Product:

Dear Reusable Bags, I am an avid users of re-usable grocery bags. I have always just used canvas bags. After encountering your site, I was quite excited, particularly about the Recycled bags -- excellent use of recycled products. However, I am disappointed with the construction of the Recycled PET EarthTote. The bag is not easy to carry as the handles are too short. The bag barely stands on its own, unlike the ACME Earth Tote. Also, the bottom of the bag is not terribly strong and doesn't support heavy products well (I ended up walking home supporting the bottom of the bag with my hand). Thanks for the efforts in making products that help us live more sustainably, nevertheless. Best, Matt

Comments about Product:

I LOVE these bags! I had a couple of canvas bags and added these as they are easily wiped down (or even washed) when you get yucky things like a leaky chicken package. The extra long handles also make items easier to carry. We hope we're on our way to setting a trend for reusable bags at our local grocery store. Baby steps . . .

My only complaint is that they appeared to be stiffer, as if they could stand on their own. I may try to find something flat and sturdy to put across the bottom to allow them to stand up in the trunk. It makes me feel good to save some plastic. Every little bit helps.

Comments about Product:

I love this bag. Not only is it lightweight, it fills like a dream. I live in the midcoast Maine region and our local food store chain has begun to credit the shopper $.10 per cloth bag when he is going to check out. The only hard part of this procedure is remembering to bring the bags into the store when you shop! Your bags (I have the heavier one also) are wonderful and I can only hope that everyone will begin to use cloth bags!

Fantastic product! I bought 4 because we have a family of 5 and these bags hold a lot! They are a really nice, sturdy weight and fold up for easy storage.

Instead of making mutiple trips from the car into the house I only have 4 bags to carry...highly recommend this product.

Comments about Product:

I ordered four bags to use at the grocery store. I absolutely love them. They are very light and don't take up much space, but they are so sturdy and hold a ton of groceries. I am saving at least 12 bags a week, if not more, using these four bags. I leave them in my car so I have them every time I go to the store. I am planning on ordering two more. That way I should be able to never use any plastic bags. The bags make unloading groceries so much more pleasant now. I'm telling all my friends about them.

I was disappointed with the bags. The discription used the term "rigid" and the image showed the bag standing up. They are floppy and thin, and hard to pack.

There are a lot of things to like about this bag but for me the one draw back is big enough to prevent me from recommending it. This bag does not stand up on it's own like a paper bag. This makes it so much less convenient. I'll use it for toting other things around but I will not use it for my weekly grocery run (which was my intended use). ACME does make other bags that will stand up and I will stick to those.
