Our Thank You Have a Nice Day & Smiley Face tote bags are spoofs on the seemingly pleasant message found on many plastic shopping bags. Printed on our best-selling, all-purpose dual-handled tote, you can literally have a nice day knowing that you're not contributing to the billions of plastic bags consumed each year. When you do end up with a plastic bag, store it for reuse in our recycle PET Stuff Sack, also included. For under $20, this set makes a great gift for the environmental newbie, or even a serious reusables enthusiast.

Our totes feature two unique "warnings" at the bottom:

"Warning: An estimated 500 billion plastic bags are consumed worldwide annually. That's almost 1 billion every minute. Thank you for bringing your own bag."

"Warning: When plastics break down, they don't biodegrade,they photo-degrade. This means the materials break down to smaller fragments, which readily soak up toxins. Then, they contaminate soil, waterways and animals upon digestion."

They make a statement every time you use them, and because they're made from super-strong, long-lasting hemp, you'll use them for years to come.

Design and Functionality
The reuseit "Thank You Have a Nice Day" and "Smiley Face" tote bags are ideal for grocery shopping and transporting everyday items. You can take these smart totes with you everywhere. Plus, hemp gets softer with age and resists stretching and tearing. They feature an innovative dual set of handles, so you can carry it over your shoulder or by hand. Using both sets, you can easily carry several bags at once.

Paired with a recycled PET Stuff Sack, this set makes a great starter shopping bag set for students, activists and those who are new to the reusables movement. The Stuff Sack is also ideal for storing ultra-compact shopping bags, storing plastic bags for reusing or even as a replacement for plastic baggies when carrying dry snacks.

Materials
Totes are made from 5.2 ounce 55/45 hemp/cotton fabric. Hemp fabric is 4x stronger than cotton fabric of the same weight. Unlike conventionally-grown cotton, hemp has no known insect enemies and a high resistance to disease, so there is no need to use harmful pesticides in its cultivation. The more you use your reuseit Have a Nice Day Smiley Face tote bags, the softer they get. Learn more about hemp.

Screen printed locally with PVC-free ink. After some investigation, we discovered that this method of screening creates less waste and lasts longer than water and soy-based inks.

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.

Sustainability
Super-durable and machine-washable, reuseit's "Have A Nice Day" and 'Smiley Face" tote bags will get countless uses and eliminate the need for thousands of use-and-toss bags over their lifetimes. All of our reusable bags are built to last, helping you save both money and natural resources.

5.0 Cute bag makes a point!

Comments about Product:

These two bags are great all the way around - they function very well (strong and durable, love the 2 handls) and I love it when someone reads the slogan. The Thank You bag makes a great "thank you" gift too.
