I get asked every time I use these - where did you get them ! They are durable , washable and I have had a set for years. If and that is a big IF they ever need replaced I will only go with his brand an style of bag.
I had a mishmash of reusable cloth, plastic, vinyl, all sizes, some even mended. Most were not the flat bottom type, and every time I used them for grocery shopping I had bags mashed in the back of the car. Carrying them into the house was a chore because of their different sizes and shapes. I ordered five of these bags and absolutely love them, especially the flat bottoms. They fold up nicely when I'm not using them and are so sturdy. I put a cheap facecloth in the bottom of each one in case of leaks. I would definitely recommend them to others.
I purchased these about 6 months ago. They are used at least weekly for my grocery trips and errands. But I also use them for other odds and ends too. So far they seem very durable which I really appreciate since I live on the second floor and have to lug the groceries up a big flight of stairs. No more broken paper bag handles and groceries spilling down the stairs! Also the handles on these are much more comfortable than any plastic bag. Those always seem to cut into my hands. I also love that you can easily just wipe out the inside of the bag with a damp cloth to clean up messes. How many times have we all had a container of something come open on the trip home?! Also, cashiers are constantly commenting that they love these because they stand up on their own which makes for easy packing. The only thing I think could make these bags even better is a lightweight piece plastic that just sits in the bottom of the bag to give it some rigidity when the bag is full of groceries. Definately something removable so that you can take it out if you dont need it. With that one addition, I think this would be the perfect reusable shopping bag!
My collection of reusable totes for the grocery store is now complete. I recycled and repurposed all the bags I have used over the years, and replaced them with Earth Tote Reusable Bags as well as Earth Tote Insulated bags. The Earth Totes hold more groceries, stand up straight for packing/unpacking as well as in the car trunk, and wash up very nicely. They are very well made and durable.
Have three of these bags and love them. They hold a lot and are very sturdy- no fear of the handle not holding.I highly recommend them.
I have just ordered two more. These bags are well made, hold a lot of groceries, stand up nicely for loading and in the car trunk. I am gradually replacing my collection of reusable grocery bags with the EarthTote.
I've been waiting for this product to go on sale. When it finally came on sale, I immediately ordered four of these. I was very excited to use this product. The bag was strong to hold grocery items. I received a lot of compliments regarding the reusable bags. I would recommend this to anyone.
After 9 years, I finally had to retire my first set of 4 bags. I used them for everything, not just groceries! I was nervous that maybe these bags were not being made anymore, but I was so excited to discover otherwise. They are worth every penny I paid for them. Their quality is top notch. I even get compliments from the clerks at the stores. I immediately give them the website with pride. WOO-HOO I am good for another 9 - 10 years!!
I bought 3 of these bags 10 years ago and I use them on a weekly basis. Hands down the BEST bags ever! I was thinking I needed to replace them, but I really don't. They really hold up well.
This is the best I've ever used. It is sturdy, holds a lot of groceries, and stands up easily for loading and unloading.
This is the best I've ever used. It is sturdy, holds a lot of groceries, and stands up easily for loading and unloading.
I have a lot of reusable bags but these are my new favorite. They hold a lot of items, hold up on their own making them super easy to fill, and seem very durable.
I purchased several of the EarthTotes seven or so years ago. I was tired of accumulating plastic bags. I had high hopes for EarthTotes and they have definitely lived up to my expectations. Not a single one has ripped, or become unstitched (which was a major concern before purchasing). After many years of use, these totes still look new. I decided to purchase several more and have noticed the design has changed a little. These newer totes stand upright and have a side pocket. Definitely a nice added feature.
Just ordering a few replacements for the ones I've been using and abusing for years. These bags are just perfect for groceries - stand up nicely, hold a ton and always impress the clerks. Even better, unlike when I first got them long ago, I'm not the only person bringing bags to the store anymore!
The bags are the best I have ever used. The amount they hold without being to heavy to carry is great. They are easy to store and take to whatever shopping you need them for. I should have gotten them sooner.
Ordered these as a set a few years back and LOVE them! I love that they stand on their own and are the size of a brown paper bag. I get a lot of compliments on them from the Grocer Clerks. They have held up to a lot of weight being carried in them. I plan to order more as gifts.
I love these bags, like everyone else here I've had them for years and put them through all kinds of abuse, but the best compliment I can give them is that grocery baggers almost always say "This is a great bag!" They are large, they are stiff and have clear bottoms (unlike sloppy, floppy nylon bags). The only odd thing at all I noticed was that the natural color ones have stayed more rigid than the all-black ones. The natural-color still stand upright when empty, the black slump over. Must be a slightly different gauge of fabric or something. Still, the best grocery bag on the market.
I also bought these 5+ years ago and they are strong as ever. The only bad thing I can report is that they don't really stand on their own anymore like they did when new.
Ordered 5 or 6 of these bags back in 08 and they're still in excellent condition and I use them for practically everything. Shopping is made easy without having to worry about cheap plastic bags that can't hold much weight in them. Supermarket cashiers and packers love knowing I have my own bags. These bags are amazing in every way; tough as ever and able to hold pretty much everything I put into it. Keeps it shape pretty well and stands on its own so I can get stuff into it without help from others and it still looks new. I have washed it a couple of times so far and it looks great. Don't hesitate, if there's only one bag for you, make it this one.
I have been using these bags for 5 years or more. They are so spacious, I can do a full grocery shop and use 5 bags! They are so great! You don't need too many.
We've had these for a few years now and we love them. They need a wash, but are otherwise in perfect condition. In addition to grocery shopping, we use them for day trips, camping, etc. As others have noted, baggers are less resistant to these vs. other floppier bags. They have a large capacity and great handles. It's much easier to cart groceries in fewer bags. Having bags with structure but that don't crinkle means you'll bring them everywhere with you. I've had noisy bags that I don't want to carry through the store with me. If everyone had a set, there would be no more plastic bag infiltration!
These bags are truly awesome. I bought 4 bags over a year ago and all 4 are still in perfect condition (with weekly use). Not one single one has ripped!! When they get dirty, I just throw them in the washing machine and hang them to dry. They hold a large amount of groceries. I have received A LOT of compliments on them from grocery store baggers (they say they like how they stand up straight for easy bagging). Shoppers in line behind me have asked me often where I got them. They look very nice and are heavy duty. I am extremely happy with this purchase!!
Was looking for something to replace all the plastic bags and this was it! Great bag with plenty of capacity. Much better than the bags sold in the grocery stores. Real value for your money.
My only wish is that they would add a little velcro strip at the top so I could roll the bag instead of folding it. I added one myself and now I can roll them tight and they are easier to carry when empty.
Overall, a great item that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
I have had a set of four of the black Earth Totes for nearly ten years. Whey they're not showing much wear, looking from the inside out, you can start to see light which leads me to believe they might FINALLY need replacing soon. They hold a ton of groceries, and the baggers are always complimenting me on the sturdiness and quality of these bags. We use them to pack groceries and toys on car trips and for our everyday grocery needs. They are easy to clean up, and truly are the best reusable bags I've ever had or even seen. Can't say enough good things. For those mentioning that they lack support on the bottom, this is true. The day I got my order of four, I cut up the cardboard box that they came in and used two rectangles of cardboard per bag held together with duct tape. Those bottoms worked perfectly and nearly ten years later are still doing so!
I bought four bags, two brown and two black of the EarthTotes to use with my reuseit EarthTote, Recycled PET bags and I like these bags and so does the baggers at the stores. They are strong bags, I had 27.8 lbs in one of them and 24.6 lbs in the other one they held the weight. You will like these bags.I will buy more when and if needed.
My neighbor received this type of bags as a gift; she got me the address where to order them and I did. I was tired of buying the bags that are sold at the supermarkets, they don't last and rip very quickly. Yours are fantastic and they even stand by themselves. I'm waiting for the ones I bought at the market to be gone, so I can replace them with yours. Thank you
I bought my first EarthTote a couple of years ago and have been using it ever since. I also used some reusable bags bought from the grocer and/or another site. Boy, but they didn't withstand all the use like the EarthTote did. I finally discarded the other bags and bought more EarthTotes. They're sturdy, hold their shape, are a good size -- hold a lot but not so much you can't carry your purchases -- and easy to keep clean.
I have several types of reusable shopping bags that are neither here nor there. I bought the earth tote to try. The sturdy construction, ample size and the ability to stand like a paper bag while being loaded--not to mention holding their shape, and not easily toppled over in the car--give me a whole knew appreciation. I may not always remember my list, but I always remember my bags!!
The EarthTote bags are as advertised, like an old fashion paper bag size wise but sturdy and durable. I love putting my groceries in them, they are roomy and easy to pack and carry. I was so tired of the cheap bags that ripped or came apart. The EarthTote bag is not that expensive and defintly worth it because it is truely reusable. Great product.
Functional and Fantastic! I love EarthTotes for their lightness and durability. These stand up totes are perfect for grocery loading. Yet, they can be easily neatly folded for storage. It's a big plus that EarthTotes can be machine cold washed. They air dry quickly and retain their shape. These totes can hold a lot so be careful not to over load. EarthTotes are worth their value. I highly recommend EarthTotes if you are looking for a functional and durable reusable bag for any purpose. Lastly, I must applaud the great customer service staff at reuseit!
perfect size, shape, weight. These bags are the best- strong, sturdy, perfect size. Love the material they are made from.
I purchased 4 of these bags about 5 years ago. I use them mostly for grocery shopping. They are so easy to pack well since the sides basically hold their shape like a paper bag. Goodness, they hold a lot- a lot of items and a lot of weight! I just replaced one of the bags as it had started to get some tiny wear holes in the bottom, but am still using it for general/ lighter shopping. Love these!!
Love this bag, it's practical, strong, smart and everything you need in a bag. Love it!
This bag is strong, sturdy, and as advertised it *does* stand open & straight, making loading groceries, etc., so much easier than with most totes.
These reusable bags are durable and easy to clean. They hold a lot of groceries which reduces the number of bags I need to take into the store. My only complaint is they can be heavy when filled to capacity.
My first order of EarthTote, Original bags has lasted me several years. I used them at the farmer's market and grocery until the bottoms started to wear thin. They have carried heavy loads and I have just received my second order and expect more good years of them. Haven't used a paper grocery bag in years!
The totes are awsome. The sackers at our grocery store love them and comment on how much they can get in them. They get so heavy you can barely lift them, but the handles don't rip out at all. Love them.
These bagas are amazing. Easy to carry, holds a ton of grocerys and everytime we are at the market people ask us where we bought them.
Haven't had the tote a long time but love the construction and the amount of groceries that fits in it! Glad I made this purchase
These are the first reusable tote that I have used for grocery shopiing. I was a little wary at first but I have been so pleased. The construction of these bags seems very good. One bag will hold at least 2 typical plastic bags worth of groceries. The short handles work well for me, but I am not having to carry these bags long distances. These bags also stand up well on their own empty, making it extremely easy to load. I would recommend these to anyone that is trying to eliminate plastic grocery bags from their daily life!
These are great bags. Easy to fold, stand on their own for easy filling and very durable material.
They are a little larger than a standard brown paper bag which is great because you can fill them with lots of groceries.
This is a great product and value.
I bought these bags because the description stated that they stand alone. The bags do stand alone, not as well as I had hoped but better than the bags I am replacing. These bags are sturdy, and seem to be well made. They are taller than they are wide and mimic a brown paper grocery bag. Overall, I'm very happy with these bags and consider them a good buy.
The product is durable, attractive, and has uses well beyond trips to the grocery store. I am always receiving compliments that these are the greatest re-useable totes people have seen. I gave sets of 4 to each of my family members. They like them quite a bit and use them frequently.
I spent days trying to decide which bags to choose for my grocery shopping (so many choices!). I finally decided to get these because of the great price and they look so nice. I am so happy I picked these. Not only are they gorgeous, they are very high quality, durable and large. I always get compliments on them from the cashiers and baggers on how nice looking and strong they are. I bought 4 bags and fits $150 worth of my weekly groceries. They are a tad large when folded down flat (if you're used to the bags that roll up into tiny balls). Absolutely happy with these!
I purchased two Earth Totes to use as gift bags. They are sturdy and roomy and make a great gift!
I love the EarthTotes. They are strong and have enough structure to stand up by themselves. I bought six last year and most "disappeared." So I had to order more. I get asked where I got them and am glad to tell people about them.
I ordered 3 of these EarthTotes several years ago and they are wonderful. I keep them in the backseat so they are handy when I go to the grocery store. I use them for everything since they are so sturdy. I recently used them to clear out all the items in my car so the inside could be cleaned at the carwash. I purchased 3 more recently. I always get comments at the store as they "stand up" to be filled. I have even given a couple as gifts.
Bags are great and just what I expected!
I read a lot of great reviews on these bags before getting them and they were all right! I love these bags, they are able to hold so much and they look great! Very happy with this purchase!
These bags are strong and will carry a lot of weight. The bags stand up while loading them and fold up when putting them away.
I've always liked the idea of reusable grocery bags but didn't like the oddly colored bags commonly offered. These bags look pretty much like paper grocery bags with just a bit of added style.
These reusable bags are large enough and strong enough to contain all items in two bags _comfortably_. And since the trip to the grocery store and back involves a lot of walking for me, it's a major relief no longer to worry about struggling with two or three of the plastic bags *in each hand* cutting off circulation to my fingers before I get home.
Originally I only bought a few of these bags due to the cost. I wanted to "try them out" before buying enough to replace the bags I bought at the grocery store where I shop (they were all falling apart after only about a year).
Well these bags were well worth the investment! I've ordered them a few times and now have about 12 or so of them. EVERY time I go to the grocery store the clerks always comment on how great my bags are and ask where I got them. They are so strong and easy to clean. I just throw them in the wash + hang them to dry. You can stuff them with heavy items (if you want to). My original ones still look new!
Love how light this is, and that it can stand open -- easy to pack at checkout. Solid construction. Great bag.
Bought two sets of bags, one to keep in my car and one to keep in my husband's car. We love them.
They are very sturdy and stand up by themselves to make loading groceries easy. We will never grocery shop without them.
SIMPLY PUT. I LOVE THEM. People are always asking me where I got them, so I hand out the little tags that come with each bag. I have even given these tote bags as gifts.
Smart looking tote, stands open on its own, just large enough without being cumbersome, I'd recommend these to friends !
I love these bags!! I have had them for a couple of years now. I just ordered more for a gift. They hold up really well.
These bags were one of my first purchases YEARS ago when I first came across this site. I have used these totes and used them and used them and used them and they still look great and do the job they were designed to do - serve as a superior replacement to flimsy plastic shopping bags. At this rate, I'll still be using these same bags 10, even 20, years from now.
So glad I purchased these--they look terrific, have held up to the demands of errands and grocery shopping, and are washable. Love the way they stay open for loading and accommodate a variety of differently sized items. Handles do not cut into my fingers even when bags are heavily loaded. They've gotten compliments too!
I am finding that I use these totes for everything. They are sturdy and easy to use with their flat bottoms. I use them at Costco, the grocery store, and recently while on vacation. I think they were a great investment and it is so much nicer to bring items home in my EarthTotes then in plastic bags.
I really like this bag! It's great to use for carrying my books and lunch to work or university and comes in handy when I have an unplanned purchase. I love the pouch at the front and that it stands up when empty. Great bag!
Already given these out as gifts to at least 5 other people. My own are my workhorses. I can't live without them!
We use the Acme bags whenever we go to grocery store.
While we got them largely to save on using paper/plastic bags, what I really like about them is how easy they make it to bring groceries to/from the car. Instead of trying to carry 10-15 of those little plastic bags, we can fit all of it in just 1-2 of our acme bags.
I'm not sure what the weight rating is, but I'm pretty sure they can hold 75+ lbs.
This is our second order of reuseit Earth Totes and we love them. They hold a great many items and are easy to carry.
I bought 3 different kinds of bags and these are by far my favorite. I would highly recommend these and agree with other reviews. I always use these for grocery shopping and will be buying more. I have even washed them in the washer and they hold up. If you want something to try first, pick this one.
This is a great good looking bag that holds a large quantity of products. I'm glad I purchased this bag and would highly recommend it to anyone.
I am gradually replacing my doubled paper bags with the Earthtote bags. Waldbaum's no longer gives paper bags- only plastic- and I have been mending my old paper bags with masking tape for several years. My last birthday my son sent me four earthtote bags. They are stronger.and easier to handle than paper bags,thanks to the fact that the fabric is very strong, they stand up to be loaded, and they have handles. I recently bought four more bags,and use all eight for my weekly shopping trips. The bags hold way more than I have the strength to carry, so I think I will need eight more to use for each weekly shopping trip. My strategy is to put four bags in the cart,and place the heaviest items in these, then tuck four more into these and place less heavy items in the second four. The last layer would be the more crushable items -bread, eggs,tomatoes etc.. I really like the convenience of the earthtote bags,and intend to eventually have all sixteen bags as earthtote. For now, They fold up to be the same size as the paper bags and so, fit neatly in the big tote side by side with my mended paper bags. Thank you for a great product, and thanks to Barry,(my son)for introducing me to your website.
I bought 6 of these bags recently to replace the flimsy reusable bags sold by my grocery store. This earth tote is everything all the reviewers raved about: the flat bottom, structured sides, water resistant inside lining and durable construction. I can't even think of anything I would change about the design!
These bags are roughly the size of paper sacks (old school brown bags) at the store. They will hold a ton, will stand up, carry quite a bit of weight and are easy to handle. I just returned from the store and loaded $220 worth of groceries in my 5 bags. Lead free, made responsibly. I'm not a tree hugger but a sportsman and want to keep the "gook" out of our water, air and landfill. These make carrying groceries much easier. I'm saving my world one bag at a time!
This is the second earth tote I have ordered; this product is remarkable in its strength (it can carry a lot of heavy books as well as groceries), its durability (no sign of wear and tear in my 5 year-old tote), and its practicality - easy to carry, pleasant to the touch, stands up by itself. I plan on ordering more, as I have found many more uses for the bag...
Best shopping bags I have ever used. I love them so much, I have purchased sets for my family members and friends. Great to keep in the car for supermarket runs.
We love the Earthtote and when we have weddings, bridal showers, new baby, etc., everybody gets a set of the Earthtote bags. These bags can't be beat and what a great way to introduce new family and friends to the idea of eliminating those hated grocery store plastic bags....plus these are great gifts anytime!
The inside of this bag resists water, which makes it even more perfect than I thought it would be. The size is great, the shape is wonderful with its flat bottom and more structured sides, and it is a great addition to my collection of bags I use when I shop. Because of its shape, it is especially useful for the bottles, boxes, and small things that can benefit from the structure to keep them stationary and keep the bag upright in the back of the car.
We ordered these bags to replace the original set we bought years and years ago. They still looked pretty good, but we finally started to notice some small holes in them, and we had to patch one with duct tape on a ripped seam, so we figured it was time to retire that set and buy another. These bags are well constructed, and the stand-up design is unique. Someone always comments on them at the store, especially the baggers, who appreciate their square shape and how easy they are to load up. Honestly, how can you go wrong with these bags? We have others, but I don't know why when the Earthtote does it all and does it so well!
These bags are awesome, we use them all the time. Most reusable bags are difficult to fill, and often end up dumping your groceries on the way home. Not these. They're strong, easy to load and unload, and grocery store clerks pretty much always make a comment about how nice they are. The bags would be perfect if they had a second set of handles so you could carry them over your shoulder like a tote. But that's a small thing, and I'd still recommend these bags to anyone who wants a good, reusable grocery style bag.
This product has been in service, every Saturday, for the last four years and then some. This product is excellent in quality and is extremely durable. A high quality product that is definitely a good value!!!
This grocery bag is so great! I have to keep buying because my mother keeps stealing them from me! It's so strong, holding more than regular paperbags. You can keeo putting things in them without worrying that the handles will break off. Excellent!
This style is my favorite for grocery shopping. The structure makes it so easy to pack, unpack and tote to and from the store. Each bag holds a lot so I have fewer bags to carry and they don't tip and spill their contents all over my car. Very sturdy construction and good looking too. I am proud to use them and love reducing the use of paper and plastic bags.
I love my tote! I use it almost every day! And it washes up great.
Love the bags. Their are gifts for my daughters. Aloha, Kathaleen
I have been using these for years and they are terrific! They hold their shape so they are easy to fill with groceries, load into the car and carry/put down in the house, and they are incredibly strong.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A BAG THAT YOU CAN USE WHEN YOU GOING SHOPPING TO PLACE YOUR OTHER BAGS IN FROM RETAIL OR GROCERY STORE. IF YOU NEED A BAG TO CARRY YOUR LUNCH, CLOTHS THIS IS THE ONE.
I bought four of these to back up my aging set of Giant Food of Landover, MD bags I bought at the grocery store seven or eight years ago. My only regret is that I wish some manufacturer would build rectangular grommets into the top of the bag so that the check out clerks could hang them on their plastic bag stands. At each check out I'm torn between doing the right thing bringing my own bag, and the angst over the clerk fumbling with the collapsing bags I have provided, making their jobs doubly difficult while forgetting to subtract the $.05 for BYOB. Please build in a way to hold the bag on their stands. Thanks, Al
Not only am I a regular user of the bags, which are admired by the clerks at my supermarket, but I am a fan of the website. It has so much useful information that I can use to educate my acquaintances about the planetary consequences of their actions. Keep up the good work.
I bought these for my Mom for Mother's Day. She loved them so much she asked for more! The cashiers at the grocery store really like them. They are easy to pack and stand up in the back of the mini-van. (no more searching under the seats for stray apples!) What are you waiting for? Buy some!
I purchased a set of four of these bags about 5 years ago. They are still as good now as the day I bought them. Best feature is they don't collapse while bagging, but fold nicely when not in use. I use them for EVERYTHING...beach towels, books, kids toys in the car, and of course, groceries. They wash well and are the envy of other shoppers. Extra bonus is the side pocket which has been helpful in so many instances.
I love, love, love that they stand up like a traditional paper bag. My only complaint would be that they take up a little more room in my trunk than some of the other options. Still, the structure makes it well worth it.
These bags are terrific, and there are none others like them! They draw rave reviews from baggers every time they see them.
Okay this review is a bit late. I purchased the Earthtotes over 2 years ago, and to this day, they are still in excellent shape! I get compliments for them everywhere I shop. They are simply the best. Well made, functional, good looks. I recently lost one of my 4 bags, so I will be reordering these.
I recently purchased the Acme EarthTote.I wanted a sturdy large bag that would stand up so it would be easier for the checkers to load. The ones that I was using from the big chain discount store didn't work well.The EarthTotes are strong and hold alot of groceries,so I don't need as many bags.I will be ordering some more for my Mom and myself.
I love these bags! Period!
These are my primary shopping bags. They hold a lot, are shaped like paper grocery bags, and stand up by themselves for convenience in packing. Really good bag.
I bought a couple of these bags two years ago and recently ordered two more. I've seen other re-usable bags, esp. those sold in the grocery stores, and I much prefer these. I like the fact that they are paper bag sized and shaped, so you know from experience what the carrying capacity is. I also like the appearance; they look really good. I use them for lots of non-shopping chores as well, e.g., dry cleaning, hauling books and papers to the library, and other things that a paper bag just would not be suitable for. I have one in the back seat to hold all my road atlases. I don't have any complaints at all, but I did read one feedback that made since to me. One user said the handles could be improved with wider mesh handles, and I think that's probably true. I don't use mine for my main grocery shopping, but if I did, I can see how that would be an improvement. Otherwise, keep up the good work.
I love, love, love these bags! They are large enough that all my groceries (for a family of 4) fit into the 4 bags I purchased. No more plastic bags!! They hold a TON of stuff. I even had to tell the bagger at the grocery store she could put more in them, she was only filling them 1/2 way. The bags are easily wiped out if something should leak/spill inside. They fold up and fit nicely in the pockets on the back of the seats in my minivan. I can't say enough good things about these reusable bags - they are AWESOME!
I bought these bags as they are a bit stronger than the workhorse bags I had. They fit the bill. Much sturdier than the Workhorse bags (which are not bad by any means)and fold nicely when not in use. I now have 3 of these bags and 10 of the workhorse bags and have them neatly stored in both vehicles, so no matter what vehicle goes shopping, there are bags available. I bought some for my mother in law and my daughter as well. Both were tickled to death with them.
My entire shopping order fits in the 6 bags I purchased. So much better than the mix of paper bags, plastic bags, and combination of paper & plastic bags I used to use. I would certainly recommend them to anyone and have already told many of friends about them. I am anticipating ordering more to give as presents.
I love, love, love my acme bags. I have been using the same ones for 3 or 4 years. The bag boys love how roomy they are. I love how easy it is to stack tons of stuff in them to bring them home. They are extremely durable and keep their shape well after years of use. Only buying new ones, because my mom and cousin have kept a couple.
I have had these bags for a few years, they are strong well made bags that are easy to wash and air dry. The shape and size is so nice because it is the shape of the old paper bags just extremely strong. My mother is also very picky and wanted two of them because a person can fit so many groceries into them, they don't rip and they wash beautifully. The grocery baggers always say wow these are nice. We think they are the best reusable bags around. The pouch on the outside is a nice extra for the newspaper or grocery list.
Nice bags for grocery food or other purposes Good material Wish straps are little longer
They stand up, they fold down to nothing and I do not need to get plastic or paper bags! That's the best thing! No, I think the best thing is actually that these will last MUCH longer than those store "reusable bags!"
I've been using this bag for about 2 or 3 years now and I can't complain. I'm only back to buy more because I moved recently and the bags got lost. I originally purchased 5, but only ever used 3 at most....even with a full shopping cart. They hold a lot of stuff and the fact that they stand up on their own for easy packing makes them worth the money! You will not be disappointed, but them!
Finally a bag that stands up on its own and carries a TON of stuff!! Usually I get the old eye-roll from the baggers at the grocery store when I whip out my reusable bags.Now I tell them "I have my own,AND they stand up!!" and a big 'ol grin comes across their face while we chat about how nice reusable bags are when they stand up for easier bagging. Especially since most grocery stores are really not properly set up for reusable bag users. Also the bags hold twice as much as my others do.Nice job. I am spreading the word and have been handing out the tags that cameon my bags to others so they know where to go to get some.
This is one of the largest reusable bags I have seen. It is very well made and appears to be very sturdy. My husband and I fought over which one of us would keep this bag in our respective cars so I had to buy more. I did notice that the bag had a rubbery odor at first, but that went away with use. The bag holds a lot. Instead of carrying 3 to 5 awkward plastic bags, you can easily put everything in this one bag. So far, this is my favorite reusable bag for grocery shopping.
The shopping bags are stylish, lightweight, sturdy and have a nice side pocket feature. The handles could be longer so that it could go over the shoulder however.
You Acme Bags are nothing short of exceptionl! The only problem is that the people that pack the bags at the grocery store must never have packed a paper bag because they don't do a good job of putting items in the bag. I have 6 of them now an constantly have to remind them there is an outte pocket on the bag for small flat items. But, I will eventually get them trained. Thanks for a superior product! Dick Fletcher
I get so many compliments on these in the grocery store, I think the only thing that they could do to improve them would to add loops at one side so the cashiers can load them better.
My mother bought me some of the bags a few years ago. I loved them so much I purchased more. I get complimented on these all the time. They are so sturdy (both styles that i've tried) and easy to pack. The baggers don't believe me when I tell them to load the bags all the way up. I purchased the most recent ones for my friend. He is trying to go green, but he won't spend his own money on things like this. He used them the first week he had them and loved them. I've purchased all sorts of bags from stores and none ever live up to the sturdiness and use-ability of these bags.
Because these are so great I purchased them as gifts for friends this year. Our family has used our two sets of ACME Bags (one in each car) for at least two years and love them. They show no wear, are strong, washable, fold well, have a great paper bag shape that stands upright and holds a lot, and garner constant compliments at the store. Like me, others love the obvious functionality and lack of advertising or graphics on the bags. Highly recommended!
Nice an study - perfect for carrying items back and forth on the bus.
Your items are great. I'll be back to buy more.
I have given these on many occasions for gifts to almost every grocery shopper in my family. They have, in-turn, bought them as gifts for their friends...and so on. I love these, and everyone I've gifted them to loves them. 5 stars for versatility AND strength.
I read some reviews from people who purchased an older version of this bag and don't like that these are thinner. I've found this bag to be very sturdy and well made, despite its light weight. Cashiers like it too because it stands on its own. I also wanted to point out that nylon *is* plastic to the people complaining that it feels like plastic. If you're looking for natural fiber try hemp or organic cotton. If you're looking for a really strong bag that's going to last long enough to cancel its own footprint, I recommend this one.
I've been using another type of grocery bag that has less structure than this bag and is nylon. I originally bought the EarthTote bags for our daughters, but when I saw them decided to try one myself. It's much better for heavier groceries than the unstructured nylon bags because I'm able to arrange the items more effectively and I can put a lot of heavy items in the bag without fear of crushing more delicate items. I'll still carry my nylon bags in my purse so I always have one when I need one, but these bags will be my go to bags for serious grocery shopping.
These bags are so great that I end up giving them to my friends to try. They clean up so easily and are so sturdy that it amazes the baggers in the grocery store. I am ordering more because they are so wonderful to use.
I love, love, love these bags. I have used them for holding groceries, shoes when moving, books, magazines, and, really, anything that will fit in them. I tell the clerks that the only limit to loading them is MY strength. Many clerks have commented on how clean my bags are. They say that they see many re-usable bags that are very dirty. I just throw mine in with the towels and hang to dry. I have yet to find any limit to their usefulness. Catching asteroids outside of the International Space Station maybe?
I really like the durability & the size of this bag. The "brown paper bag" replication has a jazzier look w/ the black, contrasting trim. I live on the 2nd floor w/out an elevator & use this bag for lots of "shlepping"! It seems to hold a lot of weight & therefore assists in my workouts. Who knew?!
The earth tote is a great product . I use them every time I go shopping. The clerks love them too and once I was asked for the purchasing details which I happily gave . I watched the video before ordering and I must say I was concerned that they would not lay flat once folded . No problem ! They have been soaked in a down pouring rain and by the time I got home they were dry . I'm very happy with this product and will use it a long time ! No more plastic bags holding only 1 or 2 items ! Earth Tote seems to be about the size of the old time brown paper bags if you need a size comparison . Customer service was excellent also. Finally!! A pleasant green product to use !
I purchased about 6 of these bags. Today one finally gave up after probably 5 years of service...grocery shopping, trips to the beach, packing for trips in the car, etc. I will be buying more. I have no doubt I have saved thousands of bags...and the checkers LOVE them because they are so easy to fill.
Have had 8 of these bags for about a year and been pleased with them. My only complaint is that they are not stiff enough and don't stand up as well as I would like. Just ordered 4 for gifts and there seems to be a difference in these newer bags. They are stiffer, have a coating on the inside and stand up much better than my older bags. I wish my old bags were like these. Makes me want to order more for myself but don't know if I can justify the expense since my old bags still serve their purpose and have held up so well.
Love the bag. It's great because it holds a lot, stands up on it's own, and it's handles are comfortable for short distances. I have over a dozen so I can have some in each car - I have only had one where the seam pulled apart. I have bought bags and monogramed them for friend but have felt the ones I bought most recently is slightly lighter fabric. Still the best grocery bag I've seen.
This was my second purchase of these bags. I originally bought a starter set over a year ago that included 4 bags and more often than not I needed one or two more. I absolutely love these bags! The original set has held up very well. Only one has gotten some small holes in it but I believe that is because it got caught under one of the seats. They hold a lot and the handles are very strong. I have loaded down a bag with heavy items such as cans and drinks and had no problems with the bags taking the weight. I have also begun using them for other shopping trips besides groceries. They also make great bags for going to the beach or swimming. I have been very pleased with these bags and will buy more in the future if I ever wear these out!
bags are great. Would like to have larger shopping bags. Thank you. Jerry Mears
Bought 2 of these & love them. They hold more than the average paper bag, but the fabric & handles are very durable. They also fit perfectly in my back side panniers on my bike.
I love the size, the look is casually stylish, and most of all the stiffness even when fully or partially loaded.
I purchased 5 of these bags and have been more than satisfied with them. They are tough as nails and can carry a surprising amount of groceries. My only complaint is after a year of almost invincible grocery carrying I attempted to wash one. It disintergrated. The seams tore right out. I would advise only washing with a cloth. My other 4 are still going strong.
These really are the best grocery bags I have used. I have been using reusable bags for several years for my shopping needs, and these are the perfect size. They stay open when you are trying to put groceries in them and hold an amazing amount of stuff.
I have been using the Earth Totes (4) for the last 3-4 years. They have held up beautifully and often the clerks comment on their quality when I check out. They are large, clean easily, and stand up for easy use. I have now purchased four more bags to give as gifts for a bridal shower and for a daughter going to grad school. I highly recommend these bags.
LOVE these bags. I have 4 and have used them for nearly 3 years. I have been asked by both customers at the grocery store and clerks where I got them. They have a waterproof-ish coating inside that adds enough stiffness to the bag to keep it upright while loading but also cold items that "sweat" don't soak the bag. They hold A LOT. I can fit a cart load of groceries in 4 bags. I keep them in my car and I even use them to bring food when we go camping, on a picnic, etc. GREAT BAGS!
Love it, love it! So sturdy, stands up when you bag the groceries and holds a ton! The bottom of mine did tear on the seam (I use it ALL the time and it has been put to the test), but I just sewed the seam back up with a sewing machine and it's working great!
These bags are the best. They stand up when you fill them and you can pack them heavier than you can lift and the bags still hold up. I have my own and this is the 3rd set I bought for wedding gifts. Everyone comments how useful they are.
Originally the bags were purchased for grocery shopping (replacing paper and plastic). I keep them in the car and because they fold so nicely they are easy to stay out-of-my-way while shopping. But then we were packing to go camping; I ended up buying more reusable bags so I could us them for packing food, sleep items, even camp equipment... everything was neat, stacked nicely into the car, the handles are easy to grab and the bags are perfect in size (once again replacing paper and plastic). The classic black or camel colors are stylish too.
Just ordered another 4 of these terrific bags so we could have a set in each car. They are, hands down, the best bags on the market. Well constructed. Look great. Fold well. Stand up by themselves during bagging. Comfy handles for carrying.
I've been using the tan EarthTote Original bags for groceries for a year and love them. They are strong and hold a lot. I got a black one to hold everything I take to chemo -- blanket, pillow, snacks and book. It's perfect and the black looks so nice. It's a little pampering on a tough day. I love your products!
The Acme bags we both fight over who gets the tan bag so I solved that by buying another. Like I said before the baggers love them. You do have to be careful that they don't over fill them if you have a bad back like me.
I have been using my ACME bags for almost a year. I bought a set of 4 on sale to do my grocery shopping and my biggest complaint is that I put TOO much in them! They still look almost new, in spite of carrying all of my groceries and shopping and dragging things to dinner parties and work. I highly recommend these for yourself or as a gift for anyone that wants a better shopping experience. And with more and more stores giving you $$ back for having your own bags, they have probably already paid for themselves!
I have 5 of these bags and I LOVE them! These bags are very durable and hold A LOT of stuff. Living in a condo, having to make fewer trips to the parking lot is always a good thing when bringing in groceries. I've gotten so many compliments on these bags that I plan to give them to friends and family for Christmas this year.
This is the best bag for loading up on the heavy stuff. Because they "stand" alone, it makes the grocery clerks job easier and they don't complain about floppy cloth bags taking more time.
Gave this as a gift and she loves them. Great to use and very sturdy.
This bag is PERFECT. I use my bags for grocery shopping, clothing shopping, beach bag, and even to pack for a weekend vacation. The best part about this bag is it stands up on its own. I have gotten hundreds of compliments on the bags especially from grocery baggers. Buy these TODAY, you will not regret your purchase.
I was given 2 of your bags for Christmas gifts a few years ago. Every time I went to the grocery store, people would ask me where I got them. I got to the point where I started wishing I had a couple more. I found the tag inside the bag that gave the website address so I went on and ordered 2 more. I am very pleased with them. They are very strong and hold twice as much as the store bags; in fact I have to watch that we don't put so much in them that I can't carry them from the car to my apartment. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
When I take these bags to Trader Joe's they comment on how strong they are and say they look like they are made to last. I wish I had bought more than just 4. These bags hold a lot and stand up for easy packing. They are about the same size as the Trader Joe's paper bag but can hold more because they are stronger.
I love my heavy duty shopping bags. The check out girls at the grocery are always surprised at how much each one holds and it's great coming home and not having to cope with all those little plastic bags.
These fit perfectly into our cart on wheels that we use for big shopping trips (without a car) Before we purchased these bags we had little bags which didn't stay upright and just didn't work. Well constructed and just what we needed!
This is a great bag, very sturdy and stylish, and it holds lots of heavy groceries - this is no wimpy bag. I've gotten numerous compliments on the bag in the little time I have owned it.
I bought 4 of these about a year ago in a starter set, and always get comments on them at the grocery store, even the clerks and baggers. They all want to know where I got them. I have some of the "ReuseableBags" handout cards right in the side pouch of the bags, so I can readily hand them out. I decided I needed a couple more and my daughter kept bugging me to get her some too. We both have 6 bags each now and we keep them in the cars. They hold a huge amount of groceries and what I like the most, is that they stand up and nothing spills out while I drive, and I only have to make a couple of trips to unload the car! They have held up wonderfully. These are worth every cent.
I love these bags....I have six for my shopping and have recently purchased them for my daughter. I get raves on them at the grocery store from the bagging clerks and when I need to take supplies on a trip they are so easy to pack and stand upright. Comfy to carry too. Very sturdy and will last for many years. I pack them in the trunk of my car and grab them when I go into the store, unload at home and fold up, put by my purse and they are ready to go back into the trunk for the next shopping trip. My best friend forever saw them and asked her daughter for a set for her Christmas gift. Really can't say enough good things about them.
These are great bags! They are very strong & hold a lot. They look good, too. My favorites!
I love the sturdy manufacturing of the bag. They really hold up under a lot of weight and use. I am very glad I bought them.
These bags are BRILLIANT. The best invention ever. I can say without exaggeration that I get positive comments about my bags in 100% of my visits to ANY store. I use them at the grocery store, Target, Walgreens, the hardware store, Ikea...I use them EVERYwhere, and without fail SOMEONE will say, "These bags are awesome, where did you get them!" The cashiers love them because they stand up on their own to make for easy loading. Fellow customers that have commented like how big and durable they look. Truly, the best invention ever. The only thing I'm irritated about is that I didn't spend the extra couple of bucks to get the recycled PET bags that are exactly the same. I'm feeling guilty that I chose to save a couple dollars and bought a new product that used new resources. If I end up needing more than the 5 I have, I will buy the recycled bags instead.
My family has used these bags for years now. We've given them as gifts and everyone just loves them. We use them every week for grocery shopping and invariably someone asks us where we got the bags. (Yes, we tell them about reusablebags.com.) Wonderful product, sturdy, roomy and not just for groceries.
Folks, This is THE bag. I purchased 6 and keep three in each car. It's larger than a normal paper grocery bag so it can hold a lot more groceries. Very, very durable. Of course we use it for more than groceries. Hardware store, drug store, pot luck dinners, we always pack one or two to take with us when we travel. Very universal bag. I highly recommend this satchel to all my friends. Going on two years of use without a thread out of place. Do the right thing either way, nuy a bag you can reuse.
Quality construction, holds its shape while being loaded and transported, accommodates a large volume of goods, holds up in the wash. The best reusable shopping bag around!
I love my black earthtotes. They hold a lot of groceries and are easy to carry. Even a handicapped bagger found them easy to use and complimented me for them. I leave them in the back of my car so they are always handy and they were perfect to pack last minute items from my son's dorm. Thank you for great bags!
Excellent quality product. Very effective substitute for paper/plastic. Also like ability to refold bag flat for storage. Checkout clerks have also commented on how easy these bags are to load.
These are the best bags ever. They are multiple times stronger than a paper bag and as convenient to load as paper. I have gotten numerous compliments at grocery stores as I check out. I can see the hesitation in the bagger's eyes as they see me pull out my own bags. They are saying in their heads, "here we go, let's see how long it takes to load these bags?" But, by the time it is all said and done they are convinced that these bags are awesome. They are a little spendy, but I have had mine for over 3 years and they hardly show any signs of use,and trust me they get used. They can carry super heavy loads and will do it for a long time. These bags are money well spent!!
These bags ROCK. I have had mine about 2 years now and the are so strong. Baggers at the store even like them. I bought 8 since I am a family of 5 and I usually only 4 or less. I would absolutely recommend them.
Simply Awesome! Shocked that I didn't have these before...they are huge...what used to take up to 10-15 plastic bags when I went grocery shopping, now only requires 5 of these bad boys!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - plus they stand right up and are foldable!!
Love these must-have bags. Have been using them for over a year, and decided to order a bunch more. They stand open well for loading groceries, and they are so well constructed that I can fill them with heavy cans or milk cartons. I have not needed to wash them yet because they repel stains so well. They have a classic brown-bag look too.
Love these bags they hold a lot
I would say excellent! Easy to clean. Many people have noticed it as well, and ask where they can buy one.
These bags are so well made, that I have the clerks put 6 half gallons of organic milk in 1 bag - they fit and have not torn or shown any wear in the 3 plus years I've had them! The clerks always comment on how sturdy they are, how they stand up by themselves, how big they are, and ask where I got them. When I tell them how old they are, they are amazed by the lack of wear and tear. I bought 6 and RARELY need extras for a family of 4. I like to think I am doing my part for the planet and try to persuade plastic baggers whenever I have the chance.
I ordered 4 of these bags and gave 2 to my mother because I loved them so much. They are just like paper sacs but strong! No more ripping bags! A person can really fill them up with out worrying about a bunch of groceries on the ground. Many compliments from checkers and other customers. I just purchased more. Thank you for providing these wonderful bags reusablebags
The ACME EarthTote is more expensive than the reusable bags my supermarket is offering but worth the extra money because they are made better and are much roomier. Don't be afraid to overstuff the bag because it's durable and stands upright. I'm glad I purchased these bags!
Awesome bags. I've had many positive compliments from checkers/baggers. They like how big they are and that they stand up. One even asked for the tag so she could check out the website.
These reusable shopping bags are very well made. They can hold a lot of weight. The fact that they stand up on their own makes them very easy to pack. They also fold back down for easy storage between uses.
Wow....We love these bags. They are great for grocery shopping. We live on the second floor and find it so easy to carry the groceries. They are ideal. They hold a lot of food and are so sturdy. I even carry one to work and stick my handbag and lunch bag along with all my other "stuff" in it. I didn't know what I was missing and wouldn''t be without them.
I purchased four of these bags and will be purchasing four more. They are excellent for grocery shopping. The cashiers love them because they are strong enough to stand up while they pack them. Where I would normally get eight plastics bags, I can get my groceries in 2 - 3 of these bags. I decided I want a set for both cars because if I make an unplanned stop at the store and don't have my bags, I feel very guilty about having to use the plastic bags. The outside pocket is great for greeting cards, or delicate items that you don't want crushed.
I love these bags! I have several styles and brands of shopping bags and totes. These are great for my grocery trips as you can pack so much more in these than in regular or the smaller grocery bags and they are strong and durable so no worries about over-packing. Great buy!
These are the absolute best bags. Well worth the price. Everyone asks where I got them. They are shaped like a regular paper grocery bag. You can pack tons of grocery and other stuff in these bags without any worry. Buy them....you won't regret it.
I love these bags. My husband and I typically come home from shopping with a dozen or more plastic bags, but with these we could cram everything into three sacks. These are super durable and we love them.
I ordered 6 of these and used one for the first time yesterday. It's fantastic! Now if only someone would make a sturdy reusable egg container that would hold up to 1.5 dozen eggs. It's hard to bag a gallon of milk and eggs in one bag because of the awkwardness and fragility of the eggs coupled with the weight of the milk. I love the Acme bags though. My husband is now joking that I was so excited to get a reusable bag credit from the grocery store by saying that now I can pay for my bags $0.05 at a time.
They are excellent bags. I'm using them for holding recyclable materials and I wanted a bag that would stand up and be strong - these bags are both.
Love the bag and grocery baggers love it too. It does not flop over while loading groceries and it holds quite a bit too. Bag appears to be made well.
I love these bags and have purchased a couple times now. The only thing I can think of to improve them would to put loops on the sides of them so they can hook to the grocery store bag holders. Some of the checkers look at me like I have 3 heads when they have to make them work.
I absolutely LOVE my ACME Bags "Earth Totes"! They fold up just like a traditional paper grocery bag, and stand up on their own while you're filling them. Because they're so strong and the handles are so sturdy, I can get away with overfilling the bag so I can get four bags of groceries into two bags, if I want to. LOVE them.
I love the bags; strong and large, they each have the capacity of 2 plastic bags. I, also, have 2 of the nylon bags which fit into their own little pouch. I always carry those in my purse. It is wonderful knowing that I am not adding more plastic bags to the landfills.
I love, love, love these bags! They changed my whole shopping experience. Yes, I know that sounds corny, but it's true! These bags are durable, super roomy, easy to fill (because they stand on their own), comfortable to carry, and they stay upright in the trunk. I get compliments on them from the store employees all of the time. I've never had to use more than four bags (even with $100 worth of groceries), that's how much they hold! I will definitely be buying more for friends and family. I highly recommend these bags for all of your shopping (I even use them at Walmart!).
love the bags, love them, love them. I try and take it to all stores, just to get away from the plastic ones. Workers are very receptive to using them.. thaks again
I LOVE THESE BAGS! I spent a great deal of time researching which reusable grocery bag to get. I bought four of these, and I couldn't be happier. They are large enough to fit a week's supply of groceries (4 bags), strong enough to carry a 128 oz carton of OJ and a bag of litter (per bag), and they stand open for easy bagging. My only complaint is that I am tired of people asking me where I got them. I actually wrote reusablebags.com on one of the bags, and I store the other ones inside, so that I get less questions. I would definitely recommend these bags to everyone!
This is the 3rd time I've ordered EarthTote's. They're amazing bags and even my husband will use them!! I buy the black to avoid stains and after much use they still look great. You really can fit a whole cart's worth of groceries in about 5 bags. They're also great for camping, going to the beach, bringing X-Mas gifts and/or food to family's houses for the holidays, packing for an overnight stay, etc. They easily fold up to 1/4 the size of the large side of the bag and easily fit in my bag that I bring w/ me everywhere. I have given them as gifts to family members as well even though some use them to bring their lunch and gym clothes to work (argh!) at least them get used. My father's family that doesn't even recycle even uses them at the grocery store regularly as it makes it easier for them to load and unload the trunk and bring the groceries in the house. Before, they'd have to make a bunch of trips, items would fall out of the bags and roll around the trunk and once they brought them in the house they'd have their kitchen full w/ bags and they have to do something w/ all of the grocery bags. Now they just bring in the 6 or so bags and call it a day. Lastly, this newest batch I ordered has a slightly different lining, but they have been performing just the same as the other ones.
We love these bags!! We ordered 4 of them and they are plently big enough for all of our weekly groceries. I must admit that some of the baggers at the store have to put in a bit more effort to figure out how to arrange the products but it is great that they stand up on their own!!
Great bags-- like them better than some others we have because they are gusseted and so "stand up" while you load them. When they do the bagging, the cashiers seem to like them better also. Very strong, could load them with more weight than a paper or plastic baag.
I asked a guy in the grocery store parking lot about his bags. He loved them and gave me the website address. I thought they were the best looking and most durable ones I'd ever seen. After using them for over a year, they still look like new. We gave our daughters and their family sets of 4 bags for each for Christmas. They love them too. Great for meeting people at the grocery store. People ask us about them all the time. Highly recommend them. Kurt O., Columbia, SC
I have several different types of bags and these are the best! They are sturdy and hold tons of groceries. The side pocket is great for holding a shopping list, keys, and wallet. I wish these bags made up my entire stash.
I get compliments from store clerks all the time because the bags are so well constructed and large. I started by ordering four, and found that they are so good, I ordered four more.
I bought these bags a while back and have enjoyed them so much and love the feeling I get knowing I am contributing to the environment so, I bought some for each of my children for Christmas. They really like the sturdiness, size, and ease of using them. The checkers at the grocery stores are always commenting on how big and sturdy they are compared to others they see. Great product!
Excellent bag! Love the handles and the fact that it sits upright on its flat bottom.
These are great. I bought them as gifts for my parents and personalized them by stenciling with fabric paint... they loved them! Recycling isn't very "in" where they live-- I have yet to see anyone take their own bags to the grocery store there; so I wanted to get them bags that would be easy to load so the baggers wouldn't get annoyed. These fit the bill!
Purchased bags for myself and as gifts this Christmas. Put gifts in the bags and and tied a bow. Have already used the ones for myself several times and love them.
Love the bags. Haven't washed them yet so I'll have to get back to you after I do. They're roomy, sturdy, and stylish without being too attention-grabbing; just right for the job! I only wish there was a way to remind me to take the bags from the car when I go shopping! I always forget to take them inside with me. Maybe the free black bag that came with them that I use to store them in should be more "attention grabbing"...
I have owned my EarthTote Reusable bags for a year and have used them...and used them. They serve as my grocery bags, food bags when traveling, bags to haul various kid's stuff and most recently, we packed our Christmas presents in them as we traveled. I love how durable they are. I liked them so much I ordered them for my mom and my aunt. My aunt LOVES them for all her tailgating "equipment" as she is a fanatical Arkansas Razorback fan. Thanks for making a quality product that the three of us wondered what we did before we got them!
The Acne Tote Bags are amazing. They are very small and yet, when you need them, become very large. It is so easy to keep extras in purses, glove compartments, etc. I love having it.
These bags are strong and sturdy. I have other bags for groceries, but these are exceptional. Thank you for providing them.
I wasn't sure what to expect when ordering this bag, but I am extremely satisfied. The bag is very sturdy and holds as much as 2-3 plastic bags would. It works well for cartons of juice and cereal boxes.
I bougth 5 of these and used them instead of using gift bags or gift wrap gift bags for my holiday gift giving and I kept one for myself. They look nice and are well made and very strong. The recepients loved receiving their gifts in them as well and all commented that they liked them because they did not have a store name or logo on them. The pocket on the front is a nice addition to stick coupons in on your way to the store, or the receipt in on your way out of the store. They were easy to order and came very quickly. I would order them again and use reusablebags.com any time.
I got a combination of these more structured bags and the workhorse style for my mom for Christmas. We both think the combination is great, the Earth Totes being so sturdy and easy to fill for larger trips, and the Workhorse so easy to slip in a purse. The Earth tote really is attractive, too, so you can do away with the hodge podge of giveaway totes and shop in earth-friendly style.
I love these bags. They are large, sturdy, attractive and a great value. They're much bigger than I expected -- four bags can hold a shopping cart of groceries. I also gave some as gifts, and they were very well received. Thanks!
This is the third type of reusable shopping bag I have purchased from this site, and it is by far my favorite. First of all, it has an extremely large carrying capacity: I can typically carry $40 worth of groceries per bag. Second, it is extremely strong: it will easily carry everything that you can fit inside of it. Third, it will "stand up" on its own, making it much more simple to fill (and subsequently, to empty). Fourth, it has a pocket on the outside which is an ideal place for storing coupons, shopping lists, receipts, and the like. Finally, because it looks much like a regular shopping bag (gender neutral), my husband likes them and is happy to use them; something that he would not do with our previous reusable shopping bags. I am trying to think of something I don't like about these bags, and there really isn't anything. The closest I can come up with is that when they are folded up they are too large for my medium-sized purse. Our other shopping bags fold up into a small 3-inch square that can easily fit in a jacket pocket or a purse. These are larger, and we keep them in the side pocket of our car when not in use.

Our other shopping bags fold up into a small 3-inch square that can easily fit in a jacket pocket or a purse. These are larger, and we keep them in the side pocket of our car when not in use.
We love these bags. We have bought more for us to use and as gifts. It's very durable and large in size. We have several different reusable bags we have tried and this one is our favorite. R & K
This is a GREAT bag! I use it just like a paper grocery bag - it's about the same size and has a flat bottom for easy loading and unloading, with a handy pocket on the outside for shopping lists, ads, coupons, etc. Very well made with sturdy handles, too. I gave several as gifts to environmentally conscious family members and I plan to order more!
I gave the bags I purchased as Christmas gifts to my family. I have used them in the past for groceries and find that I wind up using them for travelling and carrying all sorts of projects. The handles are a great help. I leave the tags on so that when the checkout people compliment me they can take down the information for themselves.
Love these bags. They're just like the old paper bags markets used to use except they are stronger and have handles. I actually packed everyone's Christmas presents in them rather than wrapping the gifts to further my eco-friendly efforts.
I love this bag! It is very sturdy and larger than most reusable bags. It is about the size of the old-fashioned brown paper bag, so it holds a lot. For a lot of quick trips to the store, it holds everything I buy. It looks great, is well made. It should hold up for a long time and for the price is a great value.
We get asked at the grocery store all the time where we got our bags. We have to brag about how durable they are, how they stand up easily while packing groceries, and how easy they are to carry. We can pack more into the bags than the old paper bags they imitate. And we can pack them to the brim and not worry about breakage. We have just ordered another 6 bags for gifts. We'd recommend these bags and will continue to use them to promote the "green" campaign. Bev Sheeley
I purchased 2 of the Acme Earthtote bags in the spring and loved them so much I had to order 5 more!! They are perfect for grocery shopping - they hold tons of stuff and stand up by themselves! I also use mine for toting packages to the post office(which I do everyday) and have one I use for my crochet projects because it is roomy and holds alot of yarn! The only way I could see an improvement in the bags would be to reinforce the bottom; with constant use - like mine get - they are starting to wear on the bottom.
This bag is by far the most sturdy reusable bag I have. It is easy to carry yet still holds more than any other bag I owe. I love it.
I have ordered work horse style bags in multiple numbers and colors and have given them to family and friends.I have four that I keep in my car for all my grocery shopping.I love them.I have washed them and they retain color and shape.Kroger store gives me 3 cents off each bag I bring so that's an added bonus. I also ordered totes which are nice and roomy for bigger items.They are strong. No complains whatsoever from me! The service,shipping and handling is great too. Thanks
The perfect bag for grocery shopping. Bags are big enough to hold a lot of stuff, and they're sturdy enough to carry heavy stuff. I bought 4 bags a couple years ago--I was so impressed with them that I bought some as presents (and a couple more for myself!).
I'm now up to 8 of the Acme shopping bags and my wife and I keep finding new uses for them. They hold an incredible amount of groceries with no risk of tearing and I like the fact they stand up on their own. We use these bags for almost everything we need to carry, in place of boxes, plastic or cloth bags or even luggage. The Acme bags are so well made that I expect some day they will pass down to my children when I'm gone.
I love these bags! Whenever I am checking out from a store, someone asks me where did I get those bags? These are extremely sturdy and hold the equivalent of full sized paper bags.
These bags are terrific! Nothing else even comes close. I purchased 20 of them to share with my two daughters. Every time I visit the grocery store someone asks me where I got the bags, because they have never seen anything like them. I immediately offer, "Reusable Bags.com." They are also great for picking apples and shopping at our Farmers' Market. Everyone should have them.
I have bought many bags and these are by far the best grocery bag you can buy especially if you want to "load it up". Sometimes I can hardly carry the bag it holds so much.
Very sturdy construction and very capable of holding a large capacity of items. Every place I go with these bags I am asked where to purchase them.
I love these bags. They hold so much more groceries than regular grocery bags. I also use them for toting other things too. I am giving these two bags as Christmas gifts. They were shipped promptly and have never had ant trouble with this website.
Love, love, love these bags! Purchased mine a year ago and use them constantly for shopping at the grocery store or target or when I just need to haul a lot of stuff together. They hold their shape; pack a ton of stuff; washable. Giving more as gifts this year.
I love these bags! I have 4, and my husband and I use them every time we get groceries. They hold more than a paper bag, and can hold at least 2 weeks worth of groceries. They are so sturdy and easy to carry. I also like the pocket in front to stuff my coupons and list in.
Of all the bags I have this bag has become my favorite. It is large and stands up open on its own. It is made of good strong material. I also have found the side pocket to be very handy. Highly recommended bag.
I'm very pleased with these bags - they're very large, seem to be very durable and are easy for the baggers at the store to work with. Now I just have to remember to use them :)
I love these bags! I've used many kinds of reusable bags for my groceries and these are, hands down, the best. They stand upright for easy packing and unloading. The construction is sturdy and I have no doubt that they will hold up for a long time. Four of these and a small Acme tote or two will carry a cart load of groceries. I like these bags so much that I bought them to give as Christmas gifts.
These bags are great. They hold tons of groceries and are very durable.
I ordered 5 of these bags but have only had to use 3. The last trip, one bag held 2 containers (1/2 gallon ea.) of Blue Bell and 2 six packs of beer without even straining the handles! The only way I would not recommend these bags is if you are looking for a shoulder bag. The handles are not long enough to carry them on your shoulder, but this does allow you to carry a heavier load. They are like paper bags with handles that don't rip. The best part? I haven't brought ANY plastic bags home in 2 weeks. Awesome!
I bought several of the ACME Bags™ - EarthTote™ Reusable Shopping Bags, gave 2 to my husband to keep in his car and gave 2 to a friend. The bags are constructed well and very roomy. I also bought an ACME Bags™ - Recycled PET Medium Thermal "6 Pack" Lunch Bag for myself. I love it! My food stays warm when it needs to be warm and cold when it needs to stay cold.
Great bags and got them at a great price. Even the grocery bagger liked them!
We love our new bags. Use them faithfully. They are so strong that we can store tons of groceries in just one.
I love my reusable shopping bags! I had been meaning to buy something like this for a long time, but I did not care for any of the ones I saw at stores since they always had the store logo on them, and they didn't seem big or sturdy enough. So, I continued to use the plastic bags for the convenience factor but always felt badly about it. Finally I bought the EarthTotes and they are wonderful! They fit a lot of groceries and they are very easy to carry. I would guess that they fit about three times the amount of groceries than would fit in your standard plastic bag. I underestimated how good it would feel to use your own bags! I wish I did this a long time ago.
We've really liked the "paper sack" style of the Reusable Shopping Bag. It stays open while being packed, doesn't tend to tip over in the car, has the carrying handles for light loads, and fabric that is strong enough to hold a big load of groceries. I haven't washed mine yet but I think they'd wash up well. I've only had one problem with one of my bags recently. The seam came apart on one of the bottom corners. I stitched it up but now have a funny "tuck" in that corner. We've bought numerous bags for family members and have had people in the grocery store comment on "the nice bags". Mine are much nicer than the bags currently for sale in our local store.
Acme bag is strong, flexable, very well made and doesn't look like those cheap reusable "grocery store" bags. I use it to carry much more than just groceries. On a scale of 1 - 10, I rate the bag at 25. Great job.
They arrived in great shape. I love these bags! They arrived in reasonable time.
I purchased these bags for Christmas gifts. But the one I kept I use alot. It comes in very handy. I like that it has its own bag and it fits in my purse.
I have bought several bags and now am sending them as gifts to friends I sent them to before. They like them so much, that they wanted more. They stand up,when filling with groceries, pet food, dry goods and Christmas bulk candy. I find new ways to use them. A friend uses them to transport items from upstairs to basement or downstairs, very handy.
Love these bags. I ordered 20 to give as Christmas gifts. They are sturdy and stand up nicely in back of my SUV, unlike my canvas unstructured bags.
I love these bags! I fill them up the way I will pack them at the end of shopping. I only have to lift them out of the cart onto the conveyor belt instead of all that bending and lifting I used to do. Some checkout people complain but most just dump out the bags and check the stuff thru. I refill the bags at the end and I'm on my way so much faster than when I had to fill plastic and paper bags. Plus I can get everything unloaded into the apartment sooo much faster. I bought four, and 3 will fold up into the 4th and I can so easily grab them to head into the store. And, I get 6¢ off each bag, so they will pay for themselves in 60 bags of groceries!!! (Oh and I've lowered my carbon footprint!)
Oops, sorry! 600 bags of groceries will pay for them!
I purchased several bags and had them monogrammed to give as Christmas gifts...my way to trying to rid the world of plastic grocery bags. Hopefully all the recipients will use them often. They look great...very stylish!
This is a perfect bag to stick in the car and use to pick up groceries or small items at an all purpose store like a Walmart or Target. It's sturdy and light weight.
I love the Acme earth tote bag. It is durable and attractive. I have no concern that it is going to rip no matter how much is packed in it. The outside pocket is great....sometimes I will put my car keys in there. I love this bag so much I have given it to other family members and friends.
Fantastic bags. I do have one complaint though - I can't get through any shopping trip without someone - the checkers, bag boys, even other customers - stopping me and saying what great bags these are. Almost every trip ends at the checkout with me telling people what the brand is and where I got them. I don't think I have ever had a product that was that popular. And with good reason - these are seriously superb items. Dan
I absolutely love the ACME Earth Tote I bought and bought 2 for each of my older kids to use too. I often get stopped in the grocery store with people asking me where I bought the bags and refer them to your site. Love how large they are, how sturdy, their washability, and the outside pocket comes in handy too. Great product.
These are great, all-purpose bags. They are a bit larger than grocery store brown paper bags, so if you load them up fully, they can get a bit heavy to carry. But other than that, the quality is great.
One thing I might add in your favor to accompany my last remarks. Your bags are wonderful, Just improve your customer service.
This is a great bag. It's strong, sturdy and holds a lot. I am very pleased!
I purchased 2 ACME earthtotes and I love them so much I ordered 3 more. That should hold all my weekly shopping items. I like the way the bags stand erect. It makes for easy loading. They are very roomy and are well made. I highly recommend them.
Solid construction, will hold 2-3 grocery plastic bags of good!
These bags are fantastic! I have 2 black and 4 tan now so I can keep them in two different cars. Every time I use them, I get comments from other shoppers as well as clerks. They are sturdy and totally comparable if not better than paper sack grocery bags. And I have washed a couple of the tan sacks in the washing machine and they come out in perfect shape.
I've had 10 of these bags for about 6 years now and you'd never know they were that old. They are amazing. I do a lot of my shopping at the military exchange and I'm constantly asked where I got my bags. The baggers at the commissary love them because they are so sturdy, stand open nicely and can hold so much. They were definitely worth every penny!
I appreciate your prompt shipment. Keep up a good work.
I love this bag. It's taller and more durable than the $1 bags you can buy at the grocery store. It holds its shape well and folds up nicely. I would definitely recommend it.
I recently purchased the earthtote reuseable shopping bag and have been using it for grocery shopping. It is very sturdy and holds a good amount of groceries. It stands on it's own, which I know is something the baggers like. It's also nice when I put it in the back of the SUV because as we all now plastic bags move all over the place and it stands up nicely on the ride home. I know I will be using these bags for other things too. I purchased 18 of them because I am giving them to my kids at Christmas to get them started on reuseable bags. I feel they are priced right for the quality. I think they will last a long time.
I now have eight of these bags and they are great. I wish they were a little stiffer so they could stand up better, but overall I am very satisfied. They hold a ton of groceries. The other day at the grocery store the bagger commmented that what was in my 4 Acme bags and 1 Medium Thermal bag would have taken at least 20 plastic bags.
I've now bought 6 of the Acme reusable shopping bags and now also the wine tote! The bags are great. They are strong enough to handle all of my groceries and the wine tote holds all the wine I can buy. I first saw someone else at my grocery store with your reuseable shopping bags, asked where she got them, ordered them and now use nothing but! Thanks for the opportunity. I wish I'd found them years ago.
I ordered four bags - two for my card and two for my wife's car. When the bags arrived, my wife's initial response was "feh" - not impressed. However after using the bags just once, her response was "these bags are really good". Marital discord? Perhaps. Excellent bags? Definitely.
I love my new reusable bags! The last time I used plastic bags at the grocery store one of the bags had groceries break through as the clerk was bagging the items and another plastic bag broke as I was taking the groceries out of my car, causing groceries to fly down my driveway. My new reusable bags are sturdy, hold a lot of groceries, are styled to look like designer paper bags, are much stronger than paper or plastic and received compliments from the grocery store employees. I also am pleased to report that my grocery store gave me credit (5 cents a bag) for using reusable bags. I enjoy participating in helping the environment, too!!!
I absolutely love these bags! I started out with 5 bags and can easily fit 10 plastic grocery bags worth of food into these. Plus, they are very easy to carry. I have since bought more for friends and family to try. They are the most durable bags that I have found and since they stand up on their own they are easy to pack.
Love my shopping bags. They are attractive and sturdy. Even had a positive comment from a grocery clerk on the quality of the bags verses others she has seen.
I love the bags. They are big enough to hold lots of groceries. And what I especially love is that when you open them up they stay open - they don't collapse back down the way the $1.00 bags do. Great product! I just need to get in the habit of remembering to take them with me when I go shopping!!!
Like everyone else - I LOVE these bags and their fabulous construction and looks! The fact that they're machine washable (cold water, and air dry) means I'll never have to use another plastic bag again! Thanks for a great product :)
A great bag! Folds up small but holds a lot and is very durable. It also looks nice. I would definitely recommend this bag.
I love this bad - stands up like a paper bag - great for groceries
This is a great grocery bag! It is very sturdy. I put as many of my grocery in the bag as will fit, and it has never broken or given out on me. I hate using plastic bags, so this bag is a great alternative. The best part is that it stands up by itself, so it is very easy to load. It is like a paper sack but without the dead tree. I highly recommend this bag.
I love these bags! I almost balked at what I considered a steep price, but these bags are TOUGH and worth every penny. The material and construction are top notch and it's pretty clear these bags will give me many years of service, as opposed to the cheaper 3.99 bags my grocery store sells. They're also strong enough to serve double duty, such as bringing snacks to the field for my son's soccer team. Also, I took the advice of another reviewer and use a large rock climbing carabiner to bind all my bags together by the handles. I just keep them all in the trunk of my car and when I'm shopping, I just hook the carabiner to the side of my cart. Very handy.
I get a lot of folks asking me where I found these bags. The staff at my local grocery store are impressed by the bags too. I recommend these bags to anyone who wants a quality bag with good size. You'll love the handles - that's one thing a paper bag doesn't have!
I love this bag. It is sturdy, large enough and stays open while you fill it. It is most like the paper grocery bags and easy to use.
I purchased the bags for my daughter and daughter-in-law for Christmas gifts. I also purchased them for my sister-in-laws' birthday because I liked them so much. I like my bags a lot--I keep them by the door to grab them on my way out.
Very sturdy and spacious--seem likely to last. That's all I have to say, but despite my taking my time to write this review, the website requires that it be at least 50 characters, so the rest is just to fill up space.
The bags purchased at local grocery stores are way to small. The ones I bought from you are equivalent to 3 times the grocery store size. At check-out,they were suprised at the amount of groceries that went into it - and I carried out one bag. Thanks
I love the reusable shopping bags I ordered so much I ordered more, for a total of 8. They are so much easier to carry than plastic or paper bags and are very durable. I have recommended them to my friends and family and my mom uses them now, too.
I love these bags. I use them for all types of shopping: groceries, farmers market, clothes. I keep them in my car so that I'll never forget to use them. They are very durable so you can load them up, and they fold down easily for storing.
This is such a great product, I love the strength and fact that it looks like a paper bag. I get compliments on it constantly in the supermarket.
These are the best grocery bags I own. (And I have about 10 different kinds...)
I really like the bags. They fit so much more groceries in them than a plastic bag. I only used 2 when I normally would have used 5 plastic bags. I felt good about not having to take home more platic bags. My sister also used them and they thanked her at the grocery store. I recommended these to my company as they are making efforts to be green. Thank you for making such a quality product. And I thank the other consumers for writing such accurate reviews.
I really like this bag. Watch the video to see it in action. It's strong & light weight, & holds more then enough.
These bags are great - I really liked the fact that they have a large bottom gusset to hold items upright.
I ordered six bags and was so pleased with the quality that I ordered six more for our vacation home. We constantly receive compliments on their looks and sturdiness from other customers and from store check-out clerks. Last week, the clerk said ours were so much nicer than the ones his store sells, which come back with ripped handles and split sides. We have not had a problem. They hold more than a paper grocery bag, and stand up nicely while you load them. You can sometimes pack more in than you'll want to carry! The handles are soft on my hands, too. Besides at the supermarket, we use them at the farmers' market, drug store and places like Target and K-Mart. Highly recommend them!
Our little vacation place is on an island that is considering outlawing plastic shopping bags, because they are not biodegradable. We decided not to wait for the law, and to stop using plastic bags now. We attended a country fair on Saturday whose theme was "going green," and were very proud to use our Acme bag for all our little purchases. Several vendors asked where we purchased it, and we happily recommended your website.
I love these bags! I bought two and went back for four more. I used to take several trips from the car to the kitchen and now just a couple of trips does the trick! It's so strong and fits a lot!! Today DH took one out to the farmer's market and it got back packed! I recommend them!
I am the envy of all patrons at the grocery store with my Acme bags. I can get $200 of groceries (not much, I know) in 3 of these bags where the store would use 7 - 8 plastic bags. Whoo Hoo!!
A keeper, but it would be even better if it were more freestanding for easier packing, and if the handle were more comfortable for carrying heavy loads.
I really like the EarthTote. It has a flat bottom and is easy to carry. It is very durable and looks great. The only problem - I hope I start remembering to take them with me every time I go into a store!
Strong. Holds a lot. Good-looking. Comfortable to carry.
I bought these bags for my parents and in-laws after my mom requested them - since they stand up on their own and are very roomy. So far, I've only heard good comments about their usefullness and durability. Great product!
The EarthTote bags are great! They hold more than a standard paper grocery bag and they standup by themselves when empty making them very easy to fill. Even when they are filled they are still to carry because of the sturdy handles.
This is the second set of bags I have purchased. I ended up giving my original bags to my mother because she loved them so much. I used them for all my shopping. I leave them in my car otherwise I will forget them. They look gread and hold a lot of items. I always get enquistive looks when I put the bags on the counter. I may be buying more for gifts. They are versitle bags.
These bags are heavyweight and hold lots of stuff. I just have to remember to put them back in the car from the house and then to take them out of my car and take inside to the store. They stand well on their bottoms. The tops droop down a bit but they'd have to be extremely stiff to do otherwise. I noticed a funny smell when I first started using them but it may have been from the manufacturing process because it seems to have dissipated. They are good to use at most grocery stores because of the similarity to a paper bag. Now even Wal-Mart is selling reusable bags so the cashiers are not looking at me like I've got two heads when I pull out my bag. I even got 50 Greenpoints at the Lowe's Supermarket (NC) for having a reusable bag. Overall, it is a really great product.
Multi-functional: groceries, shopping, beach trips, traveling... They stand up nicely when bagging groceries and are very sturdy. Along with other reusable bags purchased on this site, these bags have helped to reduce my plastic bag consumption to zero. They clean up easily and fold nicely too.
Wonderful bags- just ordered 6 more (3 for me, 3 to get others hooked). I wanted STURDY bags (to replace paper grocery bags) that are easily cleaned and a pleasure to use- these definitely fit the bill. And hubbie is happily using them too!
I received my order within a couple of days so my first comment is that shipping is so fast it will make your head spin! These ACME EarthTote bags are great. I ordered 6 of them and have now used them twice. They are extremely roomy, attractive, have an outside pocket that is very convenient. They are obviously very sturdy and I am sure I will use these for years to come. My only complaint is that when I present these at the checkout line the baggers don't know how to react. The first time I was still loading items onto the belt and not paying attention and they bagged everything in the regular plastic bags first and then put those bags into the ACME bags!!!! DUH. I learned my lesson and the next time I explained why I was putting them out. I am seriously considering giving these as Christmas gifts this year and I plan to do a blog post about the importance of using reuseable bags and this website.
Great bags especially in black. Roomy, comfortable to carry when full and makes us feel good because we aren't using plastic or paper!
For my fifty-first birthday, a friend of mine gave some of your ACME Bags. I love them. They are light weight but very sturdy and roomy. The cashiers and baggers at my grocery store have remarked on how much they like the ACME Bags. The straps are long enough so the bags can be carried on your shoulders - that means fewer trips to the car to unload groceries. My sisters, mother and friends are all getting some for Christmas. Thank you for such a wonderful product - now, can you one that unloads itself when you get home? Kala - Nashville, TN
The ACME black bags are great! Their quality, size, and simple yet stylish look make them a great shopping companion. The only suggestion I (actually my husband) has is perhaps slightly lengthening the strap, or having a second longer strap. It doesn't fit over my husbands shoulder.
Excellent product. Large, roomy, and strong. And looks pretty good too. My favorite of the 5 bags I've tried.
The Acme Earth Totes are all that I hoped they would be! I purchased 3 and they are big enough to hold a weeks worth of groceries, strong enough to handle big loads and seem sturdy enough to last a long time. It is great not having to deal with a dozen plastic grocery bags each week. Not to mention how easy it was to purchase them from your website and the fast shipping. I just wanted to say a BIG THANKS to making my life a little easier.
I ordered extra bags for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law because I thought mine were so wonderful. I am the envy of the grocery baggers!
I love these bags. The first time I used them, the person bagging over loaded them. In spite of the weight, the bags worked great (no broken handles like paper bags). The bagger really liked that the sides didn't droop making loading very easy. I'm usually asked where I got them and I am happy to refer any one who asks, to your site. I will buy this product again. (They would make a great gift.)

I love the bags and think they are well worth the cost. They are sturdy, and hold so much more than a plastic bag. They stand up on their own due to their construction and design. I'm so tired of seeing plastic bags as litter and I'm tired of recycling and these are a perfect alternative. Thanks!
I recently bought 2 of the acme earthtote bags. I love them. I bought my mother in law two also. They are so much stronger than the flimsy ones you see by the checkout at most grocery stores. They also are so easy to carry and hold so much. My only complaint is they don't stand up as much as I thought they would. It doesn't bug me, but still seems to irritate the baggers at the store:)
These bags are amazing. They fold up fairly compactly(about the size of a folded over brown paper bag), yet when open they stand up (and open) on their own and the bottom stays flat (many reusable bags are floppy). This is a HUGE help when packing groceries. These bags are extremely durable--nearly indestructable. I also love the front pocket--it is where I keep my small cloth and net produce bags.
These lifetime bags are great. However, a seam came loose right after I bought it, making me doubt its durability. I exchanged it and have had it now for 8 months. Both bags are holding up well. I added velcro to the side pocket and keep my produce bags there. Works great.
My Bags are so fashionable. I line 6 of them up on the plastic bag rack and tell the bagger to fill them. At first, one of the baggers said he could not be bothered..so I baggged my own. The large tote is great for the wet stuff and I found it was pretty well balanced when full. The bamboo tableware is not to my liking.. I am not use to serving size utensils to eat a meal with. The non serated knife actually cuts.I have used utensils, so can't get my dollars back. Down size the fork and spoon. The prongs on the fork do not have to be so long and thick and the bowl of the spoon so huge. Save time, make it a thiner, spork. Cate
These Acme totes are fantastic. Noting the quality, I believe that they will last for many years. Also love their large size!
This bag is outstanding. It is extremely durable making it perfect for trips to the grocery. I always get favorable comments from the baggers at the grocery. The length of the handles are too short for hanging the bag over your shoulder. Other than that it perfect.
Great office gift for co-workers without being over the top for Christmas.
I love my new Acme bags! They stand up well when filling them up, hold a lot more groceries than plastic bags, and are SO strong! I don't have to worry about the handles ripping apart. I love that I can make fewer trips to and from the car. Plus it's nice not using plastic bags anymore. I highly recommend these bags.
Reusablebags.com is easy to work with, their website is easy to navigate, and their customer service was excellent. Need I say more?
The bags are of great quality. They look great, carry very well and can easily be stored. I live on an island where we ride bikes so we either pull the groceries home in a trailer or have them delivered. They are easily carried by the delivery people. Interesting that the baggers seem to use less bags when I bring these for them to use.
I recently received 12 Acme brown grocery bags. I previously bought 4 bags and use them overy shopping trip. I look forward to giving these away for birthday and Christmas gifts. The bags are built good, stand on their own when packing them with groceries. I like the idea of making less trips from car to the house, as they each replace 4-5 plastic bags. I wish more people would go to reusable bags and save our environment.
Love these bags. They are the size and shape of a regular brown paper bag, but much stronger. Because of that they are easy for the store baggers to use. They fold up like a paper bag and I keep them in my car. I had purchased a few before and then realized I needed a couple more.
I like my bags very much.They are the size that will handle everything.I even got a compliment from a checker on the bags.
These bags are really convenient -- since they are sized the same as a paper bag, they seem to be easier for the baggers to fill.
Great bag, holds tons of stuff, doesn't stand on it's own very easily but it's really sturdy!
I hesitated spending money on these bags since I already had cheaper, store branded version, but when you go food shopping 2X per week, you want bags that make life easier. These are great, and unlike the ACME recycled bags, they DO stand up for loading and hold a great deal. Suggestion: buy a calibiner clip and clip the bags on the front of your shopping cart so that you're not digging for them underneath groceries.
I LOVE these bags!! I bought some a few years ago and have used them so much that a few were actually wearing out. NOT a product fault, I think .. more of a result of using them CONSTANTLY .. for some heavy stuff!! They are excellent!! I always get comments about them when I shop. I've given the Reusable bags link to tons of people in the store who want to know "where did you get that bag!" (heck, I've even given a way a few of the bags to total strange ... just to make converts out of them!) the best product on the site! I bought tan last time and black this time ... go with black -- hides the dirt better =)
After ordering the dual handled string bags, which I now use for my produce, I decided to invest in the Acme EarthTote's. I love these. Every where I go, I get asked where I got these bags and I proudly write down the web address for your site and let them know just how great these bags really are! I've even given one to a friend. She raves about it. I have no complaints about the product what-so-ever. I keep them in my car and when I need to make a quick trip, they're readily available! Thanks again for making a wonderful product that I'll use till they fall apart!!
This is my second purchase of these bags because I wanted enough to accommodate a major grocery shopping expedition. Love these bags -- and so do the baggers at my market! I have YET to shop with them and not receive compliments (!!)from the market staff. I'm planning to give these bags, stuffed with goodies, as Christmas gifts to our adult children.
These bags are the BEST!! They can hold A LOT of groceries per bag, but with the sturdy handles, it makes them easy & comfortable to carry. I've received so many compliments about them and everyone wants to know where I got them. In the beginning, I would give them the Reusablebags.com cards that came with my purchase. Now that I'm out of those I just tell them "Reusablebags.com"!
I love everything about my bags! They are sturdy and attractive. Shipping was quick. Will do business with again.
Overall a great bag. Well constructed. Very roomy. Fold nicely for storage.
They fit great in Novara 'Round Town Panniers from REI. I'm happy with my purchase.
I love this bag! It's extremely durable and fits many items.
I've owned these bags for almost a year now. I still love them. They have lost some of their stiffness, but not a big deal - still just as strong. I've found so many uses for them - always pack one in a suitcase incase you buy too many souvenirs , and they great for camping b/c you can put the hose on them if they get dirty. I wish more people were using bags like these so the young grocery clerks wouldn't try to scan it like it was for sale :) I plan on buying some for relatives in hopes of turning an older generation more green.
I forgot - another great use - if you leave your car windows cracked and water gets on your seat, you can sit on your bag(s) and keep your bum dry :)
I ordered four of these bags. They hold a lot if the person packing them knows what they're doing. The bags are very sturdy and can hold a lot of weight. I'll be ordering two more bags like these because sometimes four isn't enough (I food shop for four adults and a toddler). I like almost everything about the bags. I don't like the odor that they emit. I don't know if it's the material or some kind of treatment that was added. I'm hoping, in time, they'll lose the odor. The bags are also very stiff & don't fold up very well or very small. Perhaps after more use they soften up and fold more easily.
We use our bags for grocery shopping. We love the quality and strength of the ACME Bags. Bought more bags as gifts for relatives.
We love the ACME bags. They hold as much as a regular grocery paper bag, sturdy and easy to fold and store. Thanks so much!
I ordered 5 of these bags. I absolutely love them. They are easy to pack for the baggers at the grocery store, and easy to carry into the house. They are very well made and I would recommend them to anyone.
Hello, I love the look and size of the bags, I purchaced 10 of them and intend to find more "Green" items to fill the bags and give them for Christmas presents. I hope that we will all start using the bags and get away from using the plastic and paper...The bags are very good quality and I'm very pleased with my purchase. Thanks, Patti Toomey
I love them...they are easy to carry and they hold alot of groceries. They are very sturdy.
Love this bag!!!! I bought 5 in tan. They are so sturdy! The side pocket is great for carrying recipes/list. Sometimes I use the side pocket to carry another bag into the store. I am giving this bag to several people at Christmas. My sons are happy it is "green".
I love this bag! I bought 2 of them and they hold so much stuff. My husband keeps one and I have one and I really can't believe how many things that fit in the bag. It even has a side pocket for items like birthday cards so they don't get bent up. It folds up flat so we just leave them in our cars. Thank you again, I would definitely buy the product again, probably will for gifts!!
Loved the beige, handled shopping bags. The handles are fantastic! Could delete the side pocket and reduce cost.
I REALLY LIKE THE BAGS! THEY ARE VERY ROOMY AND THEY HOLD A LOT OF GROCERIES.
I love the bags and found an unanticipated bonus. When leaving the grocery store I just grab the handles and walk to my car. I no longer have to return the grocery cart to the store or hunt for the "return carts here" location in the parking lot. The bags stay in my car full time. On a brief vacation last week they did double duty as laundry bags. Great product. I'm about to order two more. Thanks.
Your shopping bags are just perfect. I actually feel proud to bring my own, great bags to the grcoery stores, etc. I will order again. Luella Pellman
LOVE these shopping bags. They hold a lot, stand up on their own and are machine washable (air dry). I will never again get another plastic bag at the grocery store! These are my staple!!
These bags are excellent. They hold a ton. You can really load them up and they are very sturdy. I tend to bag them myself because grocery baggers try to just shove everything in there and I prefer to have heavy things on the bottom and perishables on top. I would recommend these to anyone as a top notch product. My wife and I both keep 2 in our car, and they hold a weeks worth of basic groceries for our family of 3. You may want to also buy 1 of the ACME Bags - Workhorse Style 1500 to keep for wet things. They fold down really small really quickly, have their own pouch, and can just be thrown in the washer. My wife keeps one in her purse all the time. However, they are much smaller than the EarthTote.
I am so happy with my reusable bags! They are perfect - just like a tall brown bag, but so much stronger and reusable! It just makes so much more sense to use these than the plastic!!! These bags are the best!
I love my ACME reusable bags! I ordered four black ones and that seems to be the perfect number for my shopping trips. They stand up and open on their own, and I love the extra outside pocket. The only problem I have is that I constantly have to tell the baggers to really fill them up, they can take it! They're so accustomed to putting just two or three items in a bag, they don't understand that you really can fit a week's worth of groceries in just three or four ACME bags! Everyone I know is getting these bags for Christmas!
My mother and I bought 2 bags to not only help the earth, but also because we were SO tired of plastic bags accumulating in the house! WE LOVE THEM!!! They are extremely sturdy and strong. Plus the 2 bags alone hold as many items as probably 10 plastic grocery bags!! We love them so much we're buying 2 more!
I really like the bags and I have received a lot of compliments. The only thing that would be nice to have on the bag is a hook, on the inside of the bag, so that it can be hung while the teller is loading the bag with groceries.
Love the bags. They stand up well and hold a lot, and feel very sturdy.
These are very strong bags. I find most baggers try to fill them too full, but they never break. I have cut 1/8 inch Masonite boards to fit the bottoms and they are indestructible. I bring them everywhere. no more plastic for me.
My husband and I absolute LOVE our new EarthTote reasuable grocery bags. We have only used them once so far, but it was so nice going to the store and not having all those plastic bags. Our new tote bags are so big and hold so much more. We actually had several comments from employees at the Publix where we shop asking us where we got our bags, etc. We have told all our friends and famiy about them as well.
We love these bags and think they are well worth the money. They are well made (indeed seem like they will last a lifetime), very sturdy and the fact that they stand up on their own makes them easy to load. They also hold much more than a paper bag (probably 3-4 times as much as a plastic bag). We use them for transporting our dry goods when camping as well. This is our second order of these bags since we gave them as gifts to our family in Chicago (hoping we could get them to start bringing reusable bags) and they all love them too.
What can I say...I LOVE 'em ALL! So glad Reusable Bags exists...I pass your name out all the time when a surprised store clerk is amazed that I have 2-3 bags (in their rolled-up state) tucked in my small purse AND that they are so pretty! I also love the recycled 'wave tote' for trips to the Farmer's Market. A little damp produce--no problem! It wipes out easily. Thanks!! Karen H. West Des Moines, IA
whats not to like? It's so good.. I rarely forget to bring it into the store! Esp.love the thick handles, and how all of my groceries dont get all squashed. You can carry a ton of stuff in this bag!
I love these bags and take them everywhere. They are well built and a great value. I have recommended them to numerous people.
Love these bags! They are large, sturdy and stay open while filling. I've tried several reusable shopping bags, but these are the best.
These are the best reusable bags out there! They are so strong, you could carry an elephant! Or a bunch of canned goods. ;D They stand upright so they are easy to fill up. They may cost a little more than other bags but they are worth every penny! I just bought 4 more.
Great bags. Good for Farmers Market and grocery stores.
I purchased 2 of these bags a couple years ago. They are great if only I can convince the sackers at the grocery store to fill them properly! Thinking about getting a few more for gifts
I purchased this bag to be used when I shop for groceries. It holds a lot of groceries, which helps the environment. Also, the bag is very attractive. All around good product. I am sure I will buy a few others in the near future.
I love the EarthTote Reusable shoppng bags. I puchased four of them and use them all the time. They are sturdy and large enough. They are better and larger then the resuable bags the supermakets sells. And much better priced. I will go ahead and also purchase couple of the insulated bags too for the cold item. Folks I highly recommend them. thanks for making a great bags
I first purchased these back back in December to use for Xmas presents - and I only had three left for myself. They were so great to use that I just purchased more for myself. They are very strong and I can pack more into these bags than in a regular paper or plastic bag. A great product! Alison, NJ
The bags are very sturdy and hold a lot of stuff. I love them and use them every week when I go grocery shopping.
I love these bags! I had several of them for myself; these are easy to store, can carry alot, and are very sturdy. I went back a second time and bought more as gifts. I recommend them to everyone. Sherry Waterford, CT
What a sturdy bag! I love that it stands open so you don't have to fight with it to put things inside. It's really durable and the outside pocket is really useful.
The two bags which we ordered are very good. We washed one on delicate cycle - cold water and then used the dryer at extra low heat and it turned out just fine. We are going to order three more bags.
LOVE THESE BAGS! I had 4 and ended up getting 3 more just because they're so durable and handy! Perfect for shopping!!
I now have 4 brown handled shopping bags. I keep them folded up and stored in a tall insulated bag, that I previously had and bring froen and refrigerated items home in it. The clerks seem to be thrilled to be using the bags instead of the plastic bags. I have had comments that the bags are more sturdy than similar bags they've seen. I even carry one to the Farmers Market, so I don't have to have more plastic bags. I use the bags in retail stores and at warehouse clubs. I really like them.
I got 4 of the ACME Bags and still cannot believe how much they hold. They are very sturdy and don't tend to fall over when full and in the back of the car. Good quality in design and material, I think they will last for a long time. I am going to get some for my mother with arthritis, as those plastic bags are painful in her hands. Well worth the cost!
these bags are thick and sturdy. i got two for the hefty items. i still prefer to use my baggu's or string bags for quick shopping because these are really big. but that's a huge benefit when i'm doing my big shopping trip. they fit a million cans or boxes easily.
I love these bags! They are large enough to hold lots of items, including large, bulky cereal boxes, but small enough to be convenient. They are very sturdy and the flat bottom helps them to stand up, although when empty, they can be a bit floppy. The handles are a good length--not too long, but not so short that tall items in the bag obstruct their use. All in all, I am very pleased with the four bags I got and will likely get more.
These bags are great. They are much bigger than I expected and are very heavy duty. When I got mine I wasn't sure how the checker would react but she loved them because they were so easy to fill. They have a wide bottom and plenty of room to fill. They are made very durable so can be filled to the top and there are not any worries tha they will fall apart. I am thinking about giving these as Christmas gifts to my kids.
I love this bag! It stands up on its own for easy use, and is very sturdy.
Thank you for these AWESOME bags! They really are terrific and are just as you describe: They resemble the size and have the stand-up ability of a full-size, brown-paper grocery bag, albeit the ACME Bags are made of sturdy texture and have HANDLES! We often shop at BJ's (similar to Sam's Club) where you have to supply your own bags ... These are also perfect because they hold the WEIGHT of the large-packaged items sold in bulk. For those who may be 'ify' about purchasing these bags, 'just do it' (per Nike). It's one decision you will NOT regret! You WILL love them. They fold up beautifully. The BEST! (I do WISH 'insulation' was an option with these Bags). It would be perfect for packing up all your refrigerated and freezer items at the grocery store. Thanks again, Reusable Bags!!!
We think the ACME Bags are terrific. They are very sturdy so you can put more more in them than a paper bag of the same size.
This is a great bag! It is well designed and well constructed. The little compartment on the outside is a great place to put something small or delicate, or even stash your wallet and keys so you only need one bag to go into the store. My favorite feature is the flat bottom and paper bag like style. It is so much easier to load and unload, and you can fit quite a bit in the bag without having to worry about things shfting around and falling out. The construction is very good, made from sturdy fabric with well attached handles, but still nice to look at. It also folds up easily and neatly when you are done using it.
Even the bagger at my local market was impressed! The bags are roomy, stand up on their own nicely, and hold MUCH more than you'd ever dream of putting into a plastic shopping bag. Now... if I can just remember to put them back in the car once I empty them! :-)
Very satisfied. They appear to be just as advertised.
I LOVE these bags. They are so sturdy but fold up to small. The tan ones are cute. We get so many compliments and questions about them at the grocery store, and our store gives us back 5 cents for each reusable grocery bag that we use. These could pay themselves back! We have 6 and it's perfect for weekly grocery runs for two people.
I love my new Acme grocery bags! I got them with the intent of creating less garbage each week, but have been wonderfully surprised at how much easier it is to bring groceries in from the car as they are so durable I don't have to worry about one ripping or getting wet. I only ordered four to see how they would do, but turns out to be all I need since I can stuff them so full with no problems! Thanks for such a great product! I've also gotten compliments on them each time I've gone to the store with them -someone always wants to know where I got them!
I LOVE my new ACME bags!! I bought three and keep them in my car. Perfect size for groceries...the checkers love them because they don't fall over like my cloth bags did. What is really cool is the fact that when I get home I put my mail and other packages on top of the groceries, making less trips from the car to the house. I plan to buy more for Christmas gifts. Thank you!!
I have been using 4 of these bags for my grocery shopping and carting various childrens items around for the past 6 months. I love that they stand upright in my car and nothing falls out. All of the store clerks think they are great. They are very easy for them to fill and they hold a ton. I only have 4 bags, but they have replaced 10-14 plastic bags (more if they double bag) per shopping trip. I loved them so much that I just sent 4 to my friend for her birthday. These were a great buy.
A perfect shopping bag. Reasonable price, sturdy, stands on its own so it's easy to load and unload, and it's easy to re-fold. My other choice was to purchase bags at my various grocery stores, but I didn't want a set of various-sized bags, nor did I want to carry someone's advertising. I love these!
very good value. Nice looking, very sturdy and hold a lot of gorceries.
I love this bag. I ordered others thinking I would like them more, but this one is perfect for groceries. It stands up on its own and I have received tons of compliments from people working in grocery stores. I bought them in black for gifts. I have the brown to be sure I designate it for the grocery store. That has helped in remembering to bring bags.
These bags are fabulous. I was so tired of all the wasted plastic. I am so glad I made this investment, not only for the environment but for my sanity as well.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these bags. They are incredibly sturdy and stylish (I bought the black one). Larger than a brown shopping bag, holds a ton and is very durable. I like the front pocket too because I can slip my keys, wallet, receipts, etc in there when I dash from the store to my car. I get asked about them all the time and I always tell people to check out reusablebags.com and look specifically for the ACME EarthTote. It's the best!
I LOVE THESE BAGS. I originally bought these to try them for my new grocery shopping service and absolutely fell in love with them. These stand up for the loading process, have that lifetime guarantee, have HANDLES, and I will not be without them. Thank-you ReusebleBags.com!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BAG!!!!!! I ordered 4 and keep them in my car. They do exactly what they are supposed to do . . . they stay open for easy packing which the checkout people at the store really appreciate. I am amazed at how much these bags can hold. What used to take 5 or 6 plastic or paper bags, I can now easily only use 2 or 3 of the EarthTotes. I also like the fact that I am doing something good for the Earth, by not using paper or plastic. The EarthTote bag is truly the best bag! I tell everyone I know about this bag and how great it is. If you are thinking about buying one, stop thinking and just do it! You'll be glad you did! THANK YOU REUSABLEBAGS FOR MAKING SUCH A GREAT PRODUCT!!! Linda :)
These shopping bags are terrific! They're very well made and sturdy. I can fill them up with heavy produce, jars, etc. and the bag and handles both stand up to the weight. I've gotten many inquiries about them at stores when people see them and I sing their praises. You won't be disappointed with these bags.
I absolutely love the ACME Bags Earth Tote-Reusable Bags. They are durable, contstructed the same way as a paper bag (easy to store), and other than the crazy looks I get from the bagging clerks, (still not on the recycle wagon), I have loved using them, and am extremely satisfied!!
I absolutely love my Acme Bags. I bought four of the shopping bags and use them constantly...not just for shopping. I'm always finding things to put in them if I leave one in my car. The bags are so sturdy I can fill them to capacity with items that would have to be put in two or three plastic or paper bags. The grocers love them because they have a flat bottom and stand up easily for filling.
I use these for my weekly grocery shopping every week and LOVE them. The store at which I shop is a "bag it yourself" place, which I actually prefer. These bags stand up and stay open on their own, which makes them easy to pack. Plus they are nice and strong so I can pack them to the top and still easily carry them by the handles. They fit nicely into my hatchback and make the most of that little space. I've even started taking them into other types of stores with me (e.g., Target, bookstores, etc.) and cut down my use of bags in those places as well. They fold up nicely and compactly so that I can just leave them in the car and use them whenever I need to shop.
This is a great bag. After I bought a few for myself, I have purchased more for family in CA and also friends in Seattle. They are both thrilled with the bags. They are good looking, lightweight but very sturdy. Wonderful that they are waterproof. I will buy more for gifts!
Although I frequently baffle the packers at my local grocery when I hand them these bags, I have learned to carry three bags with me in the car always and use them. Sure cuts down on wasted paper bags - and they hold everything - so roomy. Very sturdy!!!
I loved this bag!!! It is so sturdy and holds a lot more than regular bags. I have 6 of them but don't normally need to use all of them. Great buy!
Love these bags! The hold a lot and stand well in the back of my van. The tricky part is to remember to bring them with me.
After only a few uses, the bags seem to be very durable and very high quality. The only drawback I see is the potential for the handles to eventually tear away from the bag if the bag is overloaded often. I bought four bags and don't overload them to lessen the strain on the handles and expect to get years of use out of them! Count me as a satisfied customer.
These are the best bags I've seen. My local grocery store sells their own, a local big-box sells their own, and these are better, bigger, and much sturdier. I keep them between the seats of my car for any shopping I might do (not just groceries). I've bought a couple of these bags for my elderly mom for Christmas. Wouldn't use any other bag, and will probably order a couple more as I have a large family. Paula in Rochester, NY
I love these bags (as much as a person can love a bag). They're sturdy (of course). They hold considerably more than paper or plastic bags. The capacity of paper or plastic bags is limited by the weight that the handles can bear. If bags are overloaded, the handles become useless, and carrying a couple of bags becomes an exercise in clumsiness and suspense. The capacity of EarthTote bags is limited only by how much weight I can carry. There are fewer bags to transport from the car to kitchen, which is great. And they make checkers smile.
These bags are AWESOME! I love them! I have gotten many positive comments on them from the baggers at the grocery stores where I shop. They especially love that the bags stand up by themselves and stay open. I can't believe how much one of these bags can hold. I did some SERIOUS grocery shopping and could fit as much as I would ever buy for a family of four in 6 bags! They make a great gift and are very useful - I'd highly recommend them!
I really like the bags. I can get more groceries in fewer bags than using plastic bags. So that means less trips from the car into the house. The bags seem to be very durable and fold up easily for my next shopping trip.
These bags are very tough and hold up well. Some stores pack as much as they can into a bag and this bag has no problem handling the extra weight. I just fold them up and keep them inside of of the bags and keep it in the back of my car. Even my husband likes using them!
The EarthTote Reusable Shopping Bags are strong, spacious, and handsome. I have 4 bags in black. They're also great gift bags to fill with fresh produce, baked goods, or gourmet treats.
Love these bags!!! I carry them in my car so they are always handy. The quality is excellent.. even the bag boys have commented how nice they are.. and the handles help to carry the bags no matter how heavy. I'm going to buy a few more to put in our other car.
This is a great bag! It will really hold a lot of items. The only issue that I have with this bag is the handles. I wish they were a bit longer so they could go over the shoulder.
I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. The bags are large, they stand up for easy loading and unloading and the handles are a nice length. I have used them for grocery shopping and family outings. I have also received a lot of positve comments from other shoppers and checkers about the bags and have passed on reusablebags.com information to all who have asked. Thanks for making such a great, earth friendly and sturdy product.
Great bags! I bought 4, which is usually sufficient for my shopping trips. I also bring along the Kold To Go thermal bag. The cashiers and baggers at the grocery stores invariably comment on what nice bags they are. They are sturdy and hold a lot. They are way better than the cheap ones the grocery stores are selling... well worth the investment.
They are as described and love using them. Thank you
I should have converted to cloth shopping bags years' ago. All the checkout people smile when they see my shopping bags.
This bag is wonderful!! I like the way it stands up for packing like a paper bag. It is strong and holds a lot of groceries. It is very comfortable to carry. I purchased 4 of these and am going to order more soon. A great bag to own!!
I love these bags! Have used them for groceries and for clothing and they work great. I keep them by the door so I will remember to take them with me when I shop. Have had nothing but positive comments from the baggers. The flat bottom and handles make packing and carrying very easy. And I love the discount I get when I use the bags.
These bags are outstanding. Top quality, durable, hold 2x as much as plastic bags and attractive. I bought 6 and will buy a few more so I never have to accept plastic bags again. Excellent.
I ordered three of these bags and they are wonderful and very durable. I can have a large food order and it usually all fits in the three bags. They are very roomy. I especially like the little side pocket on the bags which is great for your keys, coupons, etc. It's easy being green with these bags!
I LOVE the EarthTotes. They are so strong and carry tons of stuff. I ended up buying a total of six so that the baggers didn't feel obligated to stuff the bags to the max (they can get quite heavy). I am very happy with the purchase. The bags came in record time (I live overseas and received them in about a week). I highly recommend these to those considering them.
We ordered 102 bags for members of our church and the response has been overhwhelmingly positive. People love the durable nature of the Acme Heavy duty Earth totes, the 'footprint' and stability of the bags. Stewardship for the earth is one of our main goals this year and we couldn't have been happier with the product and the service! University Congregational United Church of Christ Justice and Witness Team, Missoula, MT.
I LOVE these bags and use them all the time... not just for grocery shopping either! I ordered them in black, and my mom ordered them in tan. They're extremely sturdy, high-quality bags, and definitely a great value compared to the smaller, less durable bags sold in the stores. These bags are very roomy and hold lots of stuff. I ordered 6 of them to and have yet to use all 6 on a typical grocery shopping trip. You'll be glad you ordered them!
I love my new reusable ACME shopping bags. It is incredible how many paper bags I have saved since receiving my bags. I ordered four, I gave one away to my mother in law, but soon I realized that I needed all four. I'll have to order more. I can fit twice as much and am not worry about the weight because these bags are really strong. I definitely would recommend them to anyone.
I love my ACME bags!! So durable, and I love that there's no logo on them. It makes them much more versatile. I have taken them shopping, on picnics, even to church! I own 4 of them, and I am very pleased. These are a great bags.
In August 2007 I ordered 12 ACME Earth Tote Bags in tan to share with my two married daughters. I find them very versatile and attract comments every time I use them. I have even used them to pick apples. In May 2008 I ordered 8 more of the same bags. My only problem - to remember to take them into the store, but I am working on it. It is a fine product.
Great Bag. I was looking for a bag that was easy to fold and bigger than the average reusable bag. This bag is it. It doesn't have a hard bottom like many of the cheaper bags but still stands up well. It also has an outside pocket which I slip a second bag into for bigger trips.
We love, love, love our Acme Bags! I bought 6---3 for my husband's car, 3 for mine. The shape and sturdiness of the bags are wonderful; they hold a LOT of food, way more than the plastic bags at the store.
I love these bags!! Very durable and you can pack a ton of stuff in and it's not too heavy. I'm pregnant with two kids and I can still carry them.
I really like these bags. They're strong and are still a nice looking bag. It would be *nice* if they had the longer straps but other than that, I can't say anything bad about them.
We bought some of the Acme EarthTote reusable shopping bags and we love them! We were attracted to them because of their size - about the size of the old paper shopping bags. And we are hooked - they have a nice square flat bottom which makes them easy to fill. And the handle is very comfortable for carrying. We use them for other things besides shopping trips. These are GREAT bags!!!
The ACME grocery bags are exactly what I was looking for. Most reusable bags I've seen for sale in stores are undersized compared to a standard paper grocery bag. These bags are well constructed and it's obvious that high quality materials were used. When I go the the grocery store it's rare that I don't get some positive remark about them. I routinely become an ambassador at that and let those who remarked know where I got them from. No more of those nasty, flimsy poly bags for me!
The service and product were excellent. If there is any case where as I needed reuseable bages I would select your company
Great bags! Very well made. I can fit more things in 3 of these bags than in 5 paper bags (less trips from the car). Only two problems are that I have to tell the bagger at the store to keep filling them since they are not used to bags that hold so much and I don't know what to do with that extra space next to the fridge where I used to put all the paper bags.
I love my EarthTote bags, they are very sturdy, I love the handles (they are so easy to carry) and what I love most is that they stand up like a paper bag so you can pack your groceries without them flopping over. I have and will continue to recommend them. Thank you for such a great product.
Great bags with very good quality construction. They are about the size of a regular paper grocery bag, but they hold a lot more because they are so much sturdier. We have four, and I supplemented them with a 5 pack of envirosax. This is pretty much perfect for our family of 5. This is what I am giving for Christmas next year!!
My husband and I wanted to do our 'green' part by buying canvas and refrigeration bags which can be used repeatedly. We are so pleased with the sturdiness of this product--the construction is truly excellent. The canvas bags have gone one extra step for me; as a preschool teacher I daily carry bags containing hands-on activities, supplies and tools back and forth from school. They are easy to fill, unload and carry, and are definitely sturdy enough to handle even my heaviest loads. Thank you for making a worthwhile product that helps the environment and us.
I like these ACME EarthTote bags. They are soft enough to fold and put in my purse when I am shopping for just a few articles - maybe three days' worth of groceries. And the price was right.
These bags are wonderful! Even the cashiers and packers at my local grocery story say how great they are. They're sturdy, easy to carry, and I can pack HUGE amounts of groceries in them with no problem and nothing broken or crushed. I really love these and have given out the website and the type of bags to my friends, encouraging them to get rid of the "paper or plastic" issue and go the Acme bag route!
What great bags! I will definitely purchase them again if the ones I have now ever wear out.
I LOVE my Acme bags! I use them everywhere-small errands, big grocery shopping times, even department stores! I could not believe how STRONG these bags are! Trust me, I have filled them to the brim! I initially bought 4 after reading reviews on them and was worried when I saw their size. Don't let the size fool you! They are AWESOME! I keep my bags folded within each other in the back of my car so there is no excuse for not having them readily at hand. Excellent size Excellent quality Excellent value From the Farmer's Market to department stores, these bags ROCK!
Dear Reusablebags.com, I purchased four large bags and have used them a number of times to carry groceries. The bags are much stronger than they appear because I can place many heavy items in them and they get the job done. The bags are easy to tote as the straps are very comfortable. Thanks for an excellent product.
LOVE my new reusable shopping bags! They are sturdy, good-looking, and are exactly the size of paper grocery bags, so my set of four easily covers my weekly shopping. I'm very happy I no longer need to get paper bags at the store. They're also very easy to carry -- a nice factor for someone with arthritis in her hands. A total winner!
ACME Bags™ - Recycled PET EarthTote™ I bought two of these bags in black and love them! I Can walk out of the grocery store with two of your bags full verses what feels like 10 plastic bags of food. I did a lot of research to find the right bag for me. This bag has great handles, folds up small, and because they are similar to paper bags in size and shape the employees who load my groceries are just as fast if not faster with them. I always unload my groceries and put the bags right back into the car so I will have them whenever I go shopping.
Love the bags! Everywhere I go, folks ask where I got them. At the grocery store, the baggers are amazed at how much they hold and how strong they are. Had I known how great they were, I would've bought some long ago!
I can't say enough great things about the Acme EarthTote. I have wanted reusuable bags for a long time but held out until I found the right one. This is it! They are extremely well made and hold a ton. They are great because they stand up like a paper grocery bag and they hold just as much, if not more. The pocket in the front is a nice bonus. They look great too. They were a good bargin for what you get. When I purchased if you bought four or more in the same color you got a reduced price. I purchased four, and I am glad I did. My family uses all of them all of the time.
I love my EarthTote. I take it to grocery store when I am shopping. I like not using as many plastic bags too.
I found the shopping bags to be quite attractive, sturdy and roomy. So far, so good! I plan to pass the name of your company/product along to friends who might admire my bag(s). I used them today, and they are easy to tuck one into the other and take to the market. I also took one into Manhattan as my "walking around purse" one day, and it was very helpful. Thanks! Sincerely, Ramona McDaris
These bags are great! They are the perfect size and seem very durable. The service was excellent and I received the bags very quickly.
Really nice bags. Purchased 4 for grocery shopping etc. They hold alot and are really durable. No regrets.
Awesome. That's the only way I can describe these bags. They're durable and have a huge capacity. I'm able to load them very full and heavy and not worry about the handles ripping out or the bag tearing. On top of everything else that is good about these bags, they are also stylish!
Ive been very happy with my bags, actually I placed this order to give as gifts.
Love them! Much stronger than paper or other inexpensive fabric bags that I've used. They probably hold 3 times what a plastic bag does, and are easy to carry. They look great too!
I use these reusable bags, overy time I go shopping, grocery, Kmart, Walmart and even Farmers Market. I love them. I can get as much in one of them that used to come in 8 or more plastic bags. One of the grocery clerks, commented that my bags were much sturdier than ones he had seen. I would hope other people would get on the band wagon and use reusable bags.
I purchased 4 bags about 2 months ago and love them! I bring 2-4 bags home now after shopping, rather than the typical 10-12 plastic bags. Strong, easy to use & store and I love that they stand up on their own. Feels great to not be contributing to the pile of plastic bags at the landfill! Mixed reviews from people at the register...most so far have asked that I bag my own groceries. Hopefully the trend continues to grow and they will become the "norm" rather than the exception! Have been telling family, friends, co-workers how great they are.
I ordered 8 of these and LOVE THEM. Every time I go to the grocery store, I always get asked where I bought them. So much durability and hold so much weight. Can't say how happy I am. Susan Ohnysty in Des Moines, IA
The bags are great. They are really strong & you can stuff them full of groceries. Even the checkout people are appreciative that we bring our own bags -- not to mention the satisfaction you get for not wasting so many plastic bags that just get thrown away when you get home. Highly recommend.
I bought 4 of these bags and that is more than adequate for a weekly shop. I love them! They hold so much stuff! I also love the fact that I no longer have a cupboard full of plastic (and) paper bags. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to move from plastic or paper bags and who wants to become more environmentally aware!
These are awesome! Very sturdy and well made. They hold a great deal of groceries, much more than even your standard paper bag! They are nice looking and much better quality than the cheap reusable bags you can get at the grocery store. The fact that they stand on their own, makes filling them so easy. I take mine everywhere - grocery store, hardware store, farmers market... you name it. And I get raves from everyone who sees them - especially the store clerks.
These are well-made, sturdy and good looking reusable tall grocery bags. I use them for things that can be piled onto each other, cold or wet things and tall things. I wish I had purchased just two tall ones instead of 4, and gotten 2 shorter ones also, but otherwise I'm very pleased with the bags.
I just love the reuseable grocery bags I purchased. They are extremely sturdy, easy to carry and hold many more groceries than your average brown grocery bag. Another great feature is that they stand while packing and fold for easy storage when finished. I would recommend these wonderful bags to everyone. I feel great as I am doing my part in helping to save the plantet!
These are great bags for grocery shopping. Strong, easy to store and very good quality. I waited until the tan color was back in stock so I could have bags that were similar to grocery bags.
I purchased a couple of the black ACME Bags™ - EarthTote™ Reusable Shopping Bags. We really like this product. They are a nice size, very durable, and I especially like the no-name simple style. My only complaint would be the strong petroleum odor they have when they are new. Since I keep the bags in my car, I could smell the odor when I opened my door. I had to wash the bags and sit them out in the sun before I could use them.
Absolutely LOVE the bags! They are slightly bigger than a paper grocery bag, the handles and material are heavy duty and the bags hold a ton of stuff. Every time I go grocery shopping, I get comments. My only suggestion, and I don't know if you can do this, is to put your URL on the bags. A few times people have asked me where I got the bags, and I always seem to forget the name of your company.
These bags are fabulous. They hold tons of groceries and other items, are strong enough to handle heavy loads, and stand up by themselves, which is a real help when loading and unloading. I keep ordering more because my husband steals mine our of my car, and I like them so much I keep giving them to people as gifts. Storekeepers are constantly commenting on how great they are and how attractive they look. I highly recommend them.
I LOVE these bags. I bought two of them, and wish I had about 4 more. They are VERY sturdy and hold more than a regular paper bag the same size. These were a great purchase!
Dear Reusablebags.com: Thanks for the great bags. They are the same size as regular paper shopping bags but can hold a lot more weight. Plus, the handles make it easy to carry the bags. I was pleasantly surprised by the low price of the bags for the value that they provide. As an added bonus, my local store credits me $.05 per bag on every shopping trip. Plus, no more trees will be cut down as a result of our weekly shopping trips. Thanks again. I will definitely contact you when I am in need of more bags. Sincerely, Carl Penner
Great construction and they stand up when bagging. Much sturdier than the PET Bags we also purchased.
I bought these bags and love them. I would suggest telling the baggers not to over-fill the bags because over time they will begin to rip on the bottom. I had that problem. I think the baggers feel the bags are so sturdy that it's okay to overfill them but it's not good.
These bags are amazing. I ordered the 2 of the black color, which look very nice, the had to order 4 more because I love them! They stand up well so inserting groceries is easy. I find myself using these bags for more than just groceries, too. Very useful, you won't be disappointed.
I'm very satisfied with this product i bought 5 bags to go shopping for just me and my husband and told the cashier to fit as much as she can in them. I was floored by how much of my groceries fit!!!! I only needed 4 bags at that! They were easy to carry very durable. I told everyone on Myspace about it!!! my husband was even shocked. what would noramlly take 15+ bags easily took 4 of the ACME! I bought a set for him to put in his car as well along with the sandwich bags and a lunch bag. This is must get!!! My sister had bought some too!!
I've been using your bags for several months. Each trip to the grocery store people have stopped to look in my cart to ask me about my bags and where I got them. I tell them how much sturdier they are and how much they hold. I use them all the time. And this has significantly reduced the number of plastic bags into my house. Thank goodness for that! I love it. I recommend the bags to as many as possible. Anything to reduce the number of plastic bags in town. Thanks!
These are the best reusable grocery bags I have tried. They hold a LOT of groceries without straining. We often have to encourage the baggers at the store to go ahead and fill them up to the top, it's ok. And many times they'll comment themselves how great they are. When the baggers are impressed, you know you've got a good thing.
These are really sturdy and seem to hold way more than a standard paper sack. These are great for heavier groceries like juice or milk, etc. The handles are just the right size! We'll be ordering more of these for our weekly grocery shopping.
I like the Acme bags I recently purchased. The bags are strong. I'm surprised how much the bags can hold. I like that the bags can be folded easily for carrying when I go into the store.
My husband and I love this bag. We use them all the time and not just for groceries. We have been asked many times where we found them. We love how much they can hold (fits more than the standard paperbag) its durability, the color (we only have black bags) and how easy they are to clean. We love them so much, we have given them as gifts. We highly recommend this product!
Bags are great! They fit so much grocery!! And each time I use I smiel knowing that I don't have to carry 30+ plastic bags home...just my two reusable bags. Thanks.
This bag is great. The fact that it stands up is maybe the best feature. Also very stong. Not only have I reordered more for myself, I've given them as gifts to all my family.
First of all, I ordered online Sunday night and received my order Tuesday afternoon. Wow! It was just in time for my Tuesday evening grocery trip. I even rolled up returned 21 of the store's plastic bags (they are actually pretty nice and sturdy- not the flimsy normal kind) for them to re-use since I said I would be using my own from now on. No one batted an eye and the bagger said she loved my bags. A whole grocery cart fit easily into 4 bags. They were much easier to carry, the contents didn't spill all over the trunk, and it saved me 2-3 trips to the car. Overall a great purchase.
Love this bag!! The last trip to the grocery store I had to teach the bagger how to pack it (no paper sacks here for a long time.) Without these bags (2) I would have had 8 to 10 plastic bags at a minimum. I love being able to unpack 1 or 2 bags, rather than multiple bags. I will be buying more for gifts for my children. These actually simplify shopping trips.
i've used these for our last 3 shopping trips and i LOVE them. they stand up straight so i open them in the cart, then i can pack them myself (i ask the clerk to scan my items and set them on top of the bagging turnstile, where i can grab them). the best part is how much these things hold. all our groceries (family of 5) fit in 4 or 5 of these bags. i have a lot fewer trips between the kitchen and the car after i get home. i feel like i'm saving time right there. i'm very pleased with these bags and may have even converted my parents during their recent visit!
I ordered the ACME Bags™ - EarthTote™ Reusable Shopping Bag and am extremely pleased with them. My mother and I made a trip to the base commissary and did not have to use one paper or plastic bag! It was great. The baggers were very impressed with the bags and asked where I purchased them, so I told them. I am trying to convince my children to purchase them also. Thank you. Trudy M. Ray
Awesome bag -- would not buy any other................................
I loooove these totes! They are most similar to an actual brown paper bag in terms of size and even looks, but hold much more! They are very sturdy and easy to use. 4 is plenty for most families I'd think. We will be using these for a long time to come.
The reusable shopping bags I bought are wonderful! They're huge and very sturdy. The flat bottoms make they easy to load and fold, and they stand upright in the trunk of the car when full. I am very, very happy with my purchase!
I love these bags! They're very sturdy and hold a lot. One bag holds as much as about four or five of the plastic bags I used to get from the grocery store. My order was shipped the next day and I received the bags in less than a week.
The EarthTote is great! It stands up on it owns for loading, it holds a ton, the handles are sturdy and they fold up nicely for storage. I am very satisfied with my purchase. I've seen a lot of reusable bags in the stores recently, but the EarthTote looks like it'll stand the test of time a lot better than any others I've seen.
I am very satisfied with the bags. They hold a ton of groceries and seem to be very substantial as far as the quality and durability. Great product!
I love these bags !! Very very sturdy..... I even ordered more to keep in my husbands car when I ask him to stop at the store for me. You will not be sorry if you order these ! Terri
Strong, sturdy and roomier than expected, was able to pack so much more into just one bag ... Plus some of the workers at Whole Foods, where they're selling their own reusables of course, were impressed with our bags -- easy to pack, so roomy, high quality. Obviously, we're really enjoying our ACME Bags! Thanks reusablebags.com.
I placed 2 orders for your bags. The first order for 2 bags was shipped to my 85 year old Mother. She loves them as they have lots of room and a great handle. I ordered 3 for my husband and I and they are the same as advertised. The fact that we are not collecting paper bags and plastic bags is wonderful. Everyone who cares about the environment should purchase these bags. Sincerely, Maureen Richardson
These two bags are the equivalent to at least three or 4 paper bags. They can hold much more because they won't rip. I'm really glad I got two. They work perfectly for a small grocery trip. Would definitely buy more, but I don't need them since they will probably last forever, along with the other reusable bags I purchased.
Love these bags! They are rugged, huge and fold up just like paper bags and are very easy to carry, even when heavy! Thanks!
We bought four, they are so affordable. My husband takes them to the "You Bag" aisles in the store, so he never has to worry about anyone using anything else. They work and store exactly like paper bags, but have a bonus pocket on the outside. Another bonus is the handles. Our grocery store doesn't have handles on their bags, so this is a great added feature
The shopping bags I ordered are wonderful. They hold a lot of groceries and are easy to pack. Very strong. We really like the product! Thanks!
This is a great product. The bags are very sturdy, have a great capacity are attractive and stow easily. They stand up very well and are very well accepted at the grocery store. This is a convenient way to do a little more. Actually, these bags are better than anything I've ever used or received to carry groceries or other purchases.
The Acme bags are great utilitarian bags. I bought enough for myself and my daughter and other members of my family. Everyone absolutely loves them over those darned plastic "fall through" bags from the local grocery. Construction is excellent and they fold up or roll up to a convenient size. Best buy I've made in quite some time. Thanks, Dick Fletcher Bellevue, Nebraska
love this bag. I like how it sits up while you pack it. Holds strong with two gallons of milk and more.
I am very satisfied with the construction of these bags. They are very well made and they stand up by themselves while they are being packed with groceries. As an added bonus, I get 3 cents back at my grocery store for each bag that I use! My only issue with the bags is they have a slightly odd smell to them. It seems to be fading with use though. Overall, I love my bags and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
I have not used the bags yet, but they are well made and I know that they will get alot of use when I do my shopping. I chose the light color for the heat in our area during the summer, also the size of each is great, the same as a brown paper bag. I really like that they can be wiped out should I break or spill anything inside them. Thanks for the fast shipping you are very highly recommended in my book!! I plan to share my coupon with others. Thanks again, Debby K.
This bag is fantastic; you'll be surprised at how much it can hold. Even the checkout guy at Whole Foods was impressed with it!
These are my favorite bags for my big, weekly shopping trip. I can fit all of our groceries for the whole week (family of four) in two Acme bags and 2-3 chico bags. (Not including milk which I don't put in a bag at all.) They are easy to carry, stand up well in the trunk of the car or at the checkout, very durable, and easy to fill up. Once summer comes around, I know that they will be very helpful for carrying supplies on our camping and vacation trips as well.
these bags are hands down better than using store supplied bags. why wouldn't you use htese.
I got 2 of these bags and I'm planning to buy a few more. They work great, even for a big shopping trip with heavy items like the milk and cans. They seem like they will stand up for a long time and are at least as big as the paper shopping bags at the store. I would definitely recommend them.
I love my new bags! They are incredibly roomy -- I was able to get groceries for a family of four in 3 of the bags!! My only suggestion would be some sort of beeper to remind me to take them into the store........ My friend referred these bags to me and I'd gladly recommend them highly to anyone!
This bag is roomy enough to carry what used to fit into 2 or 3 plastic grocery bags. I love it.
We bought ACME Bags™ - EarthTote™ Reusable Shopping Bag to replace those from our grocer. We love them and couldn't be happier!
I love my ACME bags. They hold much more than plastic shopping bags and they're easy to carry because of the handles. I would recommend them to anyone.
Nice bag, it stays up-right when packing - doesn't fold in on itself. Very sturdy so-far.
This is the second purchase of the Acme Bags for me. My original 4 bags have performed beautifully but weren't enough for my bi-monthly shopping for a family of 5. Now I can get everything in my bags and feel confident food items are not going to fall out or tip over in my car. This is a product that lives up to its reputation. We use them for picnics, camping, trips to the cleaners. They're incredibly versatile and ultimately, reliable. The baggers at our grocery have finally come to like them as much as I do since they don't have to open so many of those useless plastic bags. They finally believe me when I tell them, "fill it to the top, it can take it!" Thank you for an attractive, dependable and very versatile product!
Even though we recycle plastic bags, I hate battling w/ them at the house until we take them to recycle! I realized I could stop the cycle and I bought these bags. They really *do* stand up on their own. They're great. They're very sturdy, yet they are so lightweight. We keep them in the car and take them into all the stores where we shop. Last week in line in front of us, we saw another lady using her own bags. We complimented her on being part of the solution and she returned the compliment and admired our bags. Be a role model! Get out there and set an example! Start a revolution! NO MORE PLASTIC BAGS!
I've used these bags for my three most recent trips and I'm really pleased with how easy it is to fit so much into them. The shape is ideal for lining up in the trunk of the car. Even the grocery store baggers comment on how nice they are!
I love these bags. I am proud to hand them to the grocery bagger at the supermarket knowing I am doing something to save our planet!
We LOVE our new bags! Even the baggers at the grocery store are impressed! They hold about 1.5 times as much as a regular plastic bag, so you need fewer than you normally have plastic bags. We are thrilled we finally made the purchase and are doing something good for the environment and ultimately ourselves. The hardest part: Remembering to take them in the store at first. I just keep them in my trunk, and when I get to the register and realize I forgot them, while the cashier is ringing me up, I run out to the car to retrieve them. We are thoroughly pleased! Thanks for a great product!
I LOVE THESE BAGS! I've used several other reusable bags in the past but these are the best! They are heavy duty, they hold a large amount of groceries, grocers love to bag with them and easy to load into my vehicle. The only drawback is that they aren't easy to fold up and store in my purse. But for me that's good, otherwise I tend to forget about them...out of sight, out of mind.
I just loves these bags!! They are so roomy and very durable. I am constantly getting comments from the baggers at stores about how much the bags hold and how they love that they actually stand up while they are bagging. Best of all, I feel that I am finally doing my part to reduce plastic bag waste. Everyone needs to take some responsibility and help preserve our planet for future generations. This is a great way to start!
Same size as a brown paper grocery bag. Study, strong. I love the two bags I bought. Probably should have bough 3 or 4
We are very pleased with the EarthTote. We shop at a military commissary and the baggers comment on how sturdy the earthtote is and how easy it is to pack. We have used the EarthTote to pack groceries for a weekend away and the beauty of the fabric is that it does not absorb odors and is easily wiped off if something gets messy. These bags hold a great deal of groceries and is easy to carry and store.
I love these bags. They are so sturdy and stand up on their own. You can put a lot of groceries in them. It would be great if they had longer handles. But overall, a great reusable bag. The bagger at the grocery store complimented me on them and asked me where I got them from.
I love these bags... they are so easy to carry and can really hold a ton of groceries. Every time I use them I have grocery clerks asking where I found them, they are so easy to fill. I also have used your sticker "Plactic Bags Blow" on the back of my car, I've had people stop and write down your website address from that sticker. Thanks for a great product! Denise
Hello! I recently purchased your heavy duty grocery bags as I am a personal chef and am constantly at the market. Your bags are spectacular! They are quiet, clean, and carry SO much and look nice when I arrive at my client's homes. Thank you for your prompt delivery and great customer service.
The ACME bags are lightweight but strong enough to carry lots of groceries. And of course they're great to carry anything else. My grocery clerk was pleased to see me bring them in - the less plastic used the better!
Great value, and they keep on giving - Not only are we saving disposable bags, but most of our local grocery stores give us a 5 cent discount per bag for bringing our own. These take up the exact amount of room as a paper bag but are far sturdier and easier to carry. Should have gotten these a long time ago!
Absolutely love these bags. I ordered 4 and keep them in my vehicle (along with the mesh produce bags). Not only do I save money at the grocery on bag credit, but I don't have to haul home 20 plastic bags because these bags hold so much. These bags are sturdy and don't fall over...so much better than plastic or paper! Glad I made the investment
A really great product! I love that it stands up on its own, so bagging is easier. I have had positive comments on it when using it. I will continue to buy from you, you have great products.
This bag is great. It holds a lot and is very sturdy and easy to pack quickly in the store. I will buy more.
My wife and I use the Acme Bags every week .I believe they are very good for the envirement.We already have two of our friends using them.I wish more people would start using them too!
I am very happy with my new bags! They are well made & I anticipate that they will be very durable. I feel very good about the fact that I am using them instead of all those plastic bags. The concept of using reusuable bags has not yet caught on where I live, but the cashiers & baggers around here are always curious & delighted to see that I am using them & want to know where they can get some like mine! Monica Arnold Charleston, WV
Love how the bags can fold up under the seat of my car for the "unexpected" grocery run. No More "I forgot my bags".
This is the best bag I have used! I have used a variety of other reusable grocery bags. This one is easy to open with one hand, stands by itself and holds more stuff than any other bag. I can get most of my groceries in 2 of these bags. 2 bags hold about what 5 of other bags holds.
I love these EarthTote Reusable bags. I bought 6, 3 for my car and 3 for my partners car. 3 of these bags holds about the same amount as 10-12 of those plastic bags. I've gotton a couple weird looks from some cashers others have thought they were very cool. They are durable, nice looking, and easy to use. The stand up just like a paper bag and are easy to fill and carry. I'm thinking about giving them as gifts next Christmas.
Awesome Bags! Nothing else like 'em! I gave them to my family for XMAS and now they are used daily.
I love my dark grey Acme bags. They're light, portable and shaped just like grocery bags. The color is good too, because it doesn't show the dirt. Now the trick is getting them into the car after I unpack and then from the car into the store.
I like this bag better than the polypro bags the store sells. It just feels more durable. I'm pretty sure I'll lose it or give it away before I wear it out.
I bought four of these bags and have been pleased to find that they are enough for even my larger grocery trips. They hold so much, even heavy stuff. Even the checkers comment on how great they are.
These bags are amazing! You can comfortably carry a large load with confidence that it won't tear. It's indestructible. The small front pouch is very handy also. It feels great to be able to answer "NEITHER" when asked "Paper or Plastic?".
LOVE the bags and will definitely order more. Yhey are a great size, waterproof, easy to carry.
These are the best bags! They are easy to use and carry and easily carry everything you could need while shopping. 4 bags is perfect for a single or two person home for those b-monthly grocery runs
The bags are great and hold a lot of things. They are very strong. I love using them for groceries.
These bags are great. Lots of room to put groceries and they are easy to carry.
Love them! love them! love them! I gave one to my daughter to use and she loves ittoo! Thanksfor such a great product. I'm recommendingyour site to everyone i know! Debra Grimm
I ordered the ACME Bags as gifts for friends. I like them because they can stand on their own which makes it easier for baggers at the store to load them up with groceries. I just wish they would come in colorful prints like the B. HappyBags. They are a very good value and I'll be getting more!
You simply cannot believe how much these bags hold until you've tried it for the first time. I was amazed! And the sides didn't even tear like paper bags. Yeah! I've already had several people at the checkout ask me where I purchased them. Thank you for a green product that is so sturdy & roomy.
On my last grocery trip before I received my reusable bags, my groceries were packed in 22 plastic bags!! I bought 8 reusable bags, and they hold everything. They are sturdy, and it is much easier to bring in 8 reusable bags instead of 22 plastic ones! I don't miss plastic bags at all - thanks for the great product!
Amazing! It is both sturdy AND stylish! Even the check out people at the grocery store ask me where I got these. We have a 2nd floor kitchen, so it is more secure than a paper bag also. I own four and will buy more!
I love these bags! They are very durable and just the right size. I can fit about 3 times the amount of groceries that would normally go in a plastic store bag. They also have a pocket in the front for newspapers, magazines or cards. I am very pleased as is my local grocer! I just leave them in my car and when I go to the store I take them in. I also love them when going to Sam's Club or Costco where they don't provide a bagging option!
These bags are wonderful. They are very strong and hold a lot of groceries!
These bags are great! They hold an astounding amount of groceries; we bought two and can usually fit 1-2 weeks worth of shopping into them ($85-90 worth of food). The build quality is good, the material is nice and thick and seems like it will last a good, long time. Two thumbs up.
These bags are great, much better than the ones I bought at the grocery store. I plan to order a few more because they are a very useful size for lots of other things besides shopping, like beach bags, picnic carry-all, etc... I definitely recommend them.
I am very pleased with the ACME shopping bags that I purchased. They are very attractive and sturdy. I ordered four of them and immediately began to use them. On the first day, I visited a Publix supermarket and Walmart. In both instances I was complimented on the bags by more than one person. I feel that I am not just helping the environment by not using plastic bags, but I am spreading the message of recycling without saying a word. One lady remarked what a great idea it is and that she needs to get some...... Overall, a great experience for me.
Excellent product - makes grocery shopping so much easier as you can place more products in the Acme Bag than you can in a regular Brown Bag or Plastic Bag from the grocery store - it's also a great way to help the planet and make a better future for everyone.
I now have purchased 6 of the ACME Reusable Shopping bags. I bought 2 of the brown ones over a year ago to give them a try. I had also purchased 2 of the ACME nylon Workhorse Style 1500 and 1 of the black mesh bags. They're all terrific--very well made and easy to use. I keep the compact ones in my purse and use them for purchases of clothing and other items. I sometimes get some funny looks, but that's all right! I recently returned to purchase 4 more shopping bags in black as my 15+ year old canvas bags somehow got wet in my trunk and mildewed. The ACME bags are GREAT! I am very happy with them. One of the best features is that they stand up on their own, which also helps over-zealous baggers in the store. The dark colors also don't show the inevitable dirt. My old cream color canvas ones were really looking awful. Using reusable shopping bags takes a little extra effort, but once you get into the habit, it sures beats all those ridiculous plastic bags! I found the crazy thing is that even when I look a cashier in the eye and tell them I have my own bags and they say "OK", they STILL whip out the plastic bags and start putting my items in them! Sigh...
I told my wife when I bought these bags "people will comment on how nice they are." She was a non-believer, but the very first time I used them someone commented, and they have continued to do so each time we use them. They are without equal in strength and convenience, and the supermarket workers seem to appreciate their paper-bag-like ease in filling.
Call me crazy but when I started shopping for bags, I spent more than several hours surfing on line comparing prices,appearance, construction,size and colors in my quest for the perfect bag. My time was well spent! These bags are fantastic! I bought eight and when I realized how great they were, I ordered four more. I bought the bright red so they are easily seen and easy to keep track of. I wish I had switched from paper and plastic grocery store bags to these years ago! They are so much easier to use. I especially love the roominess (boxed items fit great!) and the sturdy handles! ccn woodland park, co
These bags are great! Roomy enough and they fold down nice and flat for storing away. We use them for toting our gear, too. They are sturdy and stylish. A great purchase.
I purchased (4) bags for myself several months ago. This purchase was a gift for my daughter and sister. These bags are so wonderful, construction is fabulous and they hold so many food items. Bringing your groceries in from the car is less time consuming, because you don't have to carry (20) plastic bags in. Thank you for such a great product. My daughter and sister are extremely pleased with your bags and are planning to tell their neighbors where to get them.
I love the bags - I should have bought more the first time! I get a credit on my grocery bill for each one I bring- although I would have used twice as many store bags since the store grocery bags don't hold nearly as much as the Earthtote does. Customers behind me in line (and sometimes cashiers and baggers) often ask me where I got them- good thing I kept the tags on- instant advertising. Would love to see the Heavy Totes with more designs than just basic brown or black!
I have used these for many trips to various stores and really like them, I get lots of good comments and am always being asked where I bought them. I bought extras for my 75 year old mom who has started doing her part in reducing waste. She loves them too!
I love these bags! They are deep, sturdy, stand on their own, and very satisfying to use. Underneath our sink used to be swimming in plastic bags and now we are efficient, neat and helping the environment to boot! I just bought 3 more for a friend's kitchen-themes bridal shower - I think they will be a hit.
These bags are amazing! They hold so many grocery items that sometimes they are almost too heavy to carry. They are very sturdy and they store flat. The only problem I have is remembering to take them into the grocery store with me. I would recommend them to anyone who is considering eliminating "throw away" bags from the grocery store.
These bags are AWESOME! Durable and large enough to hold alot of items!
I love these bags! They hold SO much! Instead of carrying several paper or plastic bags I can usually get everything I need in 2 bags and the handles are very sturdy.
I love these bags! I used to come home from the supermarket with about a dozen of those flimsy plastic bags that would rip and spill all of my groceries all over the place. I purchased 4 EarthTotes and can easily fit all of the weekly groceries for my family of 5 into them. I would recommend them to anyone.
Your reusable heavy duty Acme grocery bags are just great! I love using them. They are sturdy and easy to carry. We've practically eliminated the use of plastic grocery bags.
This is the perfect bag for me. Although I own and use some of the smaller Acme bags that fold into self-pocket and stash in my purse, the EarthTote is my favorite for my typical grocery trip. It is substantial enough to stand on its own for loading, it holds a LOT - and is sturdy enough to support the weight. It is a real workhouse for the typical big loads. I own four of these, and always manage to get all of the groceries I need for a family of 6 (including 4 teens) into just these 4 bags. It also is the best bag for use on my bicycle trailer, as it is a bit more structured in shape. It is a really nice picnic bag as well. Great, great bag - sturdy, well-constructed, and great for multiple uses!
These are the most incredibly sturdy bags i have purchased. I went to the crocery store and bought a bunch of baby food jars an i told the bagger to fill it to the rim, she looked at me like i was off my rocker. Well, she did and was extremely impressed with the sturdyness of the bags. Thanks reusablebags for such wonderful products.
These are great. Hold as much as regular grocery bags and you don't have to worry about them ripping. I like the idea of saving space plus saving the environment.
I absolutely love my bags! I was really surprised with how much they could hold. Great product!
I love my new grocery bags! They are well designed, and much more sturdy than other models out there for sale. I bought several, although I don't use them all because they are so roomy! I now can put 3 in both cars so my husband and I are always prepared! Thanks for the great customer service and speedy delivery. I'll recommend your bags to friends and family.
These bags are so fantastic; only two of them have taken the place of about 4 cheaper reusables. (Two of these plus a thermal bag will handle most shopping trips for our family of three). The pocket on the outside is a nice bonus, I can slip things in there I want to get out first, or want separated from the food (cards or a magazine, etc).
Great bags - sturdy, roomy, handy. I just bought some more to use as hostess gifts.
We love our new bags and have been very impressed with their durability. They also hold so many groceries that I left Wal-Mart a few weeks ago with just 2 bags instead of the 5 or 6 plastic it might have taken!
The bags are awesome. They are incredibly sturdy and hold all of my groceries. I have recommended them to all of my friends.
I love my bags. I use one to carry my lunch & magazines every day back & forth to work. Over the weekend I was at WalMart & the lady behind me stoped me to ask where I got my "black grocery bag." They'wonderfull! I hope you'll keep the price reasonable, so regular people like me can continue to purchase them.
I love my ACME bags! The ones I bought 5 years ago are showing no wear whatsoever and I love how they are constructed to stand by themselves. People comment each time I go to the grocery store--employees and other customers---about what great bags they are and I always refer them to the website. It makes me feel good to be saving all the paper and plastic that I used to use.
We love our Acme bags, and so do the baggers at our grocery store. Unlike other bags, these stand up just like a paper grocery bag, making them easy to load. They don't collapse in the back of the car, so no worries about canned goods or fruit escaping the bag! The only concern is that these bags are so sturdy they can be loaded to an uncomfortable weight. In this case, the bags may well outlast the durability of your arms and back if overloaded.
Love the bags! My daughter gave me four for a Christmas gift, and I liked them so much I bought another 6 so I can have some in each of our cars. It's a challenge to remember to bring them with you all the time but I'm determined to bring home fewer bags!
These are great bags! They are big and sturdy. They stand up nicely when you're putting things in them. They hold the same as (and maybe more than) a brown paper grocery bag. I love not having to worry about the bags tearing when I'm carrying them in the house. And I feel good knowing that I'm not contributing more plastic bags to our landfills.
The bags that I brought was the ones I was look for. They are strong and can handle bottles and cans. I like this product alot and would recommend them to anyone. Cnnie
Love it! So much easier and planet friendly than plastic bags
The bags are great! They hold even more then I though they would, and I always get compliments on them at the grocery store. I'm glad that I can help save the planet by using them.
I purchased PET and these bags. Both are the same time and serve the same purchase. I've had a chance to use these bags several times now. They work just fine. My only complaint is that the material is very stiff and hard to fold up. I haven't had a chance to wash them yet. Upon first use, I like the PET bags better because they are lighter, more flexible, and easier to stow away.
I love the product and feel great to be taking this step in protecting our environment. Even got my husband on board so we each keep 2 bags in our cars so whoever is shopping is equipped. Bags are a great size and well constructed. I'd recommend them to everyone. Get on board to keep our planet cleaner.
They are very sturdy, and hold much more than a typical plastic grocery bag. I love the basic, simple look. I am very pleased with these bags.
My entire experience with this organization ... from beginning to end ... was nothing short of totally fantastic! First of all, you make a great product; second, your responsiveness to specific requests (such as the one I had) is totally A-1 in total satisfaction; third, you are prompt ... the turnaround time from order to receipt was outstanding; fourth, you have great customer service, with a real effort to please ... an art that is fast dying out; and fifth, I LOVE THE BAGS!!!!!
I like the bag because it stands up and has a front pocket. It also holds a lot of groceries. I appreciate that it doesn't have any logos on it either, except for a very small Acme tag.
I love my heavy duty acme shopping bags, I never have to deal with broken glass from grocery store plastic bags breaking again. I keep some in my car and some in the house, no matter what I have to carry I have a bag to put it in. Black stays clean has a great appearance and a great value. I have given them to other family members and they love them too. I especially like the fact that when you open them, they can stand up by themselves, making it easy for fill. I even use it for my carry on for the airplane, holds my purse and laptop and allows for easy access.
Strong and big! These are great for the grocery store (I live in the burbs, so I have a bunch of these for the big weekly shop.)
We like the bags very much. We will probably purchase more. No problems or defects. Thanks!
these totes are awesome, they are roomy and easy to carry
I love the way the Shopping bad stands up by itself. It holds alot of items and is easy to carry. I like the way it looks - classy but strong.
The ACME Bags™ I bought are awesome! They're really heavy duty, and can carry a whole lot. The fabric is strong and if it gets dirty you can just wipe it right off. They are perfect for me!
I absolutely love the Earth Totes. I have given all of mine away so I will need to order more. Everyone not only enjoys the practicality however they look great and are also very sturdy. I can't wait to use one of my own. My order was received quickly and was very organized in the box. Thank you for making my first purchasing experience a great one.
Wonderful product handsome, functional, and durable I could not be happier.
This bag ROCKS. It's big enough to carry a ton of groceries, strong enough to give an elephant a lift. The handles are just the right length so that it doesn't drag on the ground too, a problem with some other bags, and with the flat bottom, it's the perfect bag for shopping. The farmer's market folks tried to walk off with my bag (not literally), it was such a hit! Thanks for doing what you do.
I love the bag. Its appearance far exceeded my expectations. Very durable material. I bought it for a male friend. I wanted something a little more manly than a traditional white canvas bag. I am more than pleased.
I bought the ACME Reusable Totes for my weekly grocery shopping. I LOVE them!!! I've seen other bags advertised for less, but I am really glad I purchased these. They are bigger than an average paper bag, and much sturdier. They fold down nicely for storage in the back of my Prius. They also stand up well, so groceries don't roll around on the trip home. I am really glad I decided to go with these sturdy bags. Now, if only they could do that pesky grocery shopping for me....
I love these bags!!! I use them non-stop for groceries. A cashier even complimented me on them because they were so easy to load. The stand-up design is really helpful, and they appear to be extremely sturdy. I only wish that they had an extra set of long handles (like another type on this site)...it would be easier to carry multiple bags if I could use my shoulder too!
Once I remembered to take them into the store with me I loved using them. They hold more than a regular grocery bag (paper or plastic) and the fact that they stand upright is helpful for both putting groceries in and taking them out. I gave them as Christmas presents and everyone is using them. At the store other shoppers and store employees ask where I got them because they are so much better than other cloth bags. I have even given them to my teenagers to keep in their cars.
Excellent bags..big size and great quality. This is my second time ordering these bags..they are for a gift.
I purchased 4 of your acme bags several months ago. I always take them to the grocery store and get many compliments on them and I am asked where I got them, and of course I tell them. These carry alot more groceries than any bags you get at the grocery store, and carrying them from the car to the house is so much easier. Two trips instead of five or more. Thank you for a great product.
My EarthTotes are attractive, sturdy and well-made. O am visually impaired and so I do not drive. I take my EarthTotes on the bus to do my grocery shopping and, no matter how much I put in them, they never break. The price for my latest set is lower than the price I paid several years ago for my first set. I highly recommend them. Jacki Cooley New Orleans, LA
We have used environmentally friendly bags before and didn't like them. The coton/fabric type get dirty and don't wash up well and the cheap synthetic ones at the grocery store didn't hold up. These are an exception! These bags are very high quality, clean easily, can hold a ton of weight (tell the baggers to stuff them full), and they will stand up on their own open like an old fashioned paper bag. My wife likes them so much she uses them for other things like hauling birthday presents, bringing in treats to work, carrying library books, etc. Nice product!
Received the replacement shipment for the lost bags today. They arrived quickly. The black ACME bags are of very high quality and and are exactly what I have wanted for some time. One of your satified customers told me about your product and I will do the same with my friends. Robert V. Irons
Sturdy, well constructed, large capacity, good looking, and how are you today, Mr. Jones?
These bags are the greatest. I LOVE taking them with me while grocery shopping. I feel so good about not using plastic bags. My neighbor saw me carrying in my three bags (as opposed to my usual 10-15 plastic bags) and now they have bought some, too.
I love my new bags. They hold so much and make carrying the groceries into the house much easier. Nice quality, very stong, and they look great.
I am so happy that I have made the purchase of 4 EarthTote Reusable Shopping Bags. I was using for many years, those nylon ones. When I received The EarthTote Shopping Bags I was instantly happy the moment I laid my eyes on them. First of all the construction was nice and thick, with very excellent sewing and stitching work. Extremely secure and very durable. I love the fact that they all sit into the one bag, as they fold so perfectly together, with no strain...they just ease together. Second was the fact that they are much larger and bigger then I had first thought. But the real test was my first shopping spree at my local supermarket. Wow!!! All 4 sit perfectly in the grocery cart, and when I pack my bags, (I pack my own bags by request), they stand straight upright, and do not slip and slide or fall all over the place. The same applies with my car trunk. I have a SUV, and the 4 bags sit perfect in back and do not slide or move while driving, because of the cloth they are made of. I am a totally happy customer, and recommend this product 100%. The ease of carrying them from my car to front door was a pleasure as the handles are soft and do not hurt hands with any sharp edges. Also the color black is a welcome color for today's styles, and the price is worth every penny if not more. Thank you, Albert P
Perfect product. Sturdy and durable. I love that they can be washed out if needed. I"m thinking of buying more for future gifts!
I purchased the heavy duty reusable shopping bags and find them great to use! They have the same footprint as a paper grocery bag, stand up well and are easy to carry. I'm really pleased with them.
I have been using 2 of these bags for just about a month now. The large size is great. The bags stand up by themselves for easy checkout. They are very user friendly. I love these bags.
My daughter gave me two bags a year ago at Christmas. I love them. Please get the tan back in stock soon. I want to order four more now!
love the bags--they are strong and the size is perfect. Actually, I am on the site to order 5 more--a couple more for me and some for my adult children.
My first reusable bag and I love it. Solid construction, simple design. I can easily fit three plastic bags full of groceries into one of these bags. Holds up very well to heavy items. I home brew beer and can carry 6 liters without worry of the stitching coming loose.
I order shopping bags as a gift for my son-in-law. He loves the bags. We are planning on ordering other types of reuseable bags. There is such an incredible variety of bags to choose from. Bags for anything you can think of. Keep up the good work!
I feel so good about using this product! I AM making a difference. The bags are so durable. Kelly Stults, Wisconsin
Sturdy construction and very roomy. The bag is self-standing so it is easy to fill at check-out. The ACME Bags™ labels are small and tasteful--unlike a major grocery chain reusable bag--so I don't feel like a walking billboard when carrying one. I would recommend the EarthTote™ Reusable Shopping Bag to anybody either as a gift or for oneself!
I LOVE these bags! They are mega-sturdy, hold tons of stuff, and the pocket on the outside is perfect for storing produce bags. They are self-standing, and therefore easy to fill. You can fold them up and store them inside another bag.These are by far my favorite bags. I am asking for more for my birthday! Renee in Castro Valley, CA
These bags are roomy and strong. They are made well and should hold up for a long time. We purchased 4 and usually only need to use 2 or 3, unless it's a big trip to the grocery store.
I bought these bags to give to my mom last year. I got three, and she uses them so much that I got four more for her this year. She loves them because they are extremely durable, hold much more weight than a paper or plastic grocery sack, and she gets to look "cool" when she goes to the store. Doesn't get much better than that!
Bags are great quality, very sturdy and roomy. I used them as gifts as everyone was happy to receive them.
I love my Acme shopping bags! I gave some to my mother in law as well, and now have to place an order for my husband, so he can keep some in his car. They hold a lot of groceries, they are sturdy, and I like the small pocket on the outside as well. I keep them in my car always. Even the clerks at the grocery store aren't annoyed when they have to disrupt their regular bagging routine.
I purchased the reusable bags for Christmas gifts to family. The order came quickly and accurately and I was very surprised at the quality of the bags. The recipients loved the bags! As soon as I recover from all the Christmas spending, I plan on placing an order for myself!
The EarthTote™ Reusable Shopping Bag is FANTASTIC! It is lightweight, but sturdy & because it stands up on its own, it is very easy to use. I take mine to work every day because I always have things I'm carry back and forth from home to work & visa versa. I'd like to have about 4 more of these!!! A suggestion for a future product: Creat a purse/small bag styled exactly like this, same plain & lightweight material, with a tab or velcro or zipper to close it. It would be about the height of where the "pocket" on the EarthTote is or maybe slightly taller. It would be great if it stood open on its own after unzipping it. I would carry that rather than the heavy purse I now carry! My biggest gripe about "commercial" purses is that most do not open wide enought to easily access or see what is in the purse and many are very heavy. It might not be a "foo-foo" looking purse, but I doubt many customers would care! It could be used for many other things as well. Buy 1 or 2 or 4 of these EarthTote bags, you will not be disappointed!!!!!
Works a lot better than the soft, flimsy ones. I'm happy with my purchase.
I purchased these as Christmas presents for my mother, sister and niece. They loved them! When my sister took them to the grocery store with her, the cashier gave her 10 cents for each of the bags she used and told her it was because the store did not have to spend that money on bags to give her. So now she saves money when she shops with them!
I love these bags and so does my husband. My hubby thought they were going to be the flimsy kind you get at the grocery store, but when we say these he was very excited. These bags a very heavy duty and look like they will hold up for a long time. I love how big they are - I should have no problem putting all our shopping goods in the 4 bags I got. I love the little pocket on the front too. What a great place for recipts, magazines, etc... I highly recommend these bags.
Oops! That was my review for the workhorse style bags... which I obviously love. These EarthTotes are just as great. I used mine for the first time last week, and it holds SO much. Instead of the usual 7 or 8 plastic bags I used this one and another reusable bag that our grocery store sells! The handles are super convenient, and the bagger really liked that it stood up on its own. Love them!
These bags are great! I got one for myself and then gave three away as gifts. But now that I've had it for a couple weeks, I'm going to be ordering more! I've been using mine for everything-whether it be groceries or clothing. I love how compact they are because I can just keep it in my purse at all times and whip it out when needed. They're wonderful-and I highly recommend them!
LOVE THESE!! Hold their shape great; carries a lot of weight - I can't believe how much they hold! I've used them almost daily since receiving plus gave a couple away as gifts and the recipients really like them too!
I purchased these bags for my daughter for Xmas. She loves their look, sturdy construction, and tan/black color (University of Wyoming colors). I thought the outside pocket was also a nice detail.
I bought 4 of these bags for myself not too long ago and loved them so much that I bought them for everyone on my family for Christmas. They were a big hit!
Stands up nicely; good quality fabric; handles are strong and conveniently placed. I gave one to each family member this past Christmas.
The ACME shopping bags were such a great purchase. Each household of the family has a set of four and we love them. Each bag fits about 5 plastic grocery bags of food so they minimize space. They're also comfortable to handle! What a great product. The bags look good in both colors.
This is an excellent product. I have both the earth bags and the Chico bags. Everywhere I take them people want to know where I got them. I would recommend these to anyone!
Really like these bags!! I got them for grocery and other shopping. They hold a lot of stuff, are light but very sturdy, and make it much easier to tote groceries than store bags. I've tried using my own bags (large canvas boat totes) in the past but ended up not sticking to it very well because the bags were so cumbersome in the car and grocery cart. These bags make all the difference! I roll up them up and fasten with a rubber band to keep them compact until needed--then put the rubber band in the bag pocket during use. Haven't gone shopping without them since they arrived.
my boyfriend just moved to seattle, and is a short stroll from the awesome pike place market, so i thought some nice reusable bags would be a great gift - and i was RIGHT! he loves them (and so do i!!). they're durable, and yet collapse to tuck under an arm when empty. the black color is great because it doesn't show spills or dirt, and is masculine enough that he can handle carrying the bags around and not feel feminine. oh, and we managed to fit an entire shopping trip into one bag! i think online the description says they're the same size as one brown paper bag - the difference is that they're so much sturdier, you can pack them full of milk and eggs and juice and tons of produce, far exceeding a standard brown bag capacity! thanks, acme bags - the earth tote reusable shopping bags are awesome!
I can't recommend these bags enough. Sturdy, easy to wipe clean, and they fit a ton of stuff! The handles are strong but don't cut into your hands, and the baggers have no trouble packing since they're the standard paper bag size. I need to order more!
I purchased the ACME Bags-"Earthtote" Reusable Shopping Bags to use as Christmas wrap. Everyone loved the idea of using less paper and receiving a reusable gift. The bags are well made with very strong handles and easy to pack standup bottom. They are a great value at any price, although I did buy them on sale. I should have bought more at that price, but will certainly buy more anyway. I have been pleased with the products I have purchased from Reusablebags and continue to pass the information along to my friends and family.
Great bags! They made wonderful holiday gifts. I appreciated the "Plastic Bags Blow" sticker as well. Keep up the good work.
Absolutely the best! Sturdy, very functional and nice looking too. I love using these bags for all my shopping needs. Thank you for a great priced product.
These bags are fabulous! My husband gave me such a hard time when I bought them b/c they are a bit pricey...now, he sees the functionality of these bags (we use them for WAY more than just groceries) and even he admits, they've been a great investment!
I am very happy with these bags. They hold more than I ever expected, by bulk and by weight. Will be back for more to give as gifts!
I love the ACME Bags reusable shopping bag. It is attractive and durable and holds a lot. I use it for shopping and last night used it to take food and goodies to a party. I'll be ordering more!
i have used & enjoyed your bags for years. i gave a dozen as gifts this year and they were the hit of the season!
Product is exactly as described; durable, DOES stand on its own, can handle being packed fully. Very good construction and am pleasantly surprised due the low cost. I am a skeptical person by nature.I would recommend. We leave them in the trunk so they are always with my wife for shopping.
My ACME Bags™ - EarthTote™ Reusable Shopping Bags - were delivered promptly and without a hitch. They're a nice big size, fold down compactly and the fabric is very sturdy - not likely to show dirt or stains. They really do hold more than the usual plastic grocery bags and are easy to carry with the well-stitched handles. Even a heavy packing doesn't appear to strain the seams. I'm still having a hard time remembering to take them into the stores with me after all these years of letting the stores do the bagging, but I feel so much better leaving with my Acme bag than disposable plastic ones. Here in the states, bringing your own shopping bag into stores isn't yet the norm but I see that more and more stores have begun to encourage shoppers to bring their own bag or buy their "branded" bags. I think that the Acme bags will fit my needs for years to come.
I love these bags. I keep them in the trunk of my car so I always have them when I go shopping. Although they are the same size as paper grocery bags, they hold more groceries because they are sturdier. I like the convenience of the outside pocket for shopping lists, cards or anything small that you don't want to place in the bag. I plan on "advertising" these to my family and friends as a great way to care for the earth as well as being a very useable and practical product.
Love the bags. Very well made and easy to use. The bags are spacious and easy to fold up for future use.
I bought this bag with the goal to reduce my waste of plastic grocery bags. What I didn't expect was how much I would appreciate using a sturdy bag, that holds a LOT, and is easier to carry into the house. And no more items rolling around in the back of the van on the way home from the store! I love it so much I bought several for my family and friends. I used them as gift bags for Christmas. I highly recommend these reusable shopping bags.
I think the bags are excellent in their durability, capacity, and storagability. I am recommending them to friends both for convenience and doing our part to save our planet.
I purchased two of the reusable bags to be used in carrying groceries home. My daughter-in-law liked it so much I gave one to her. I have used it to carry books to the library and stay overnight at a friends. I gave your URL to her to order more as she is very involved in sewing, 4H and many other activites with her daughters.
My daughter had this on her list for our family grab bag and I thought they seemed like a great idea so I ordered 2 of them. They arrived very promptly! She loved hers and my husband took over the other to hold his pvc tubing for his heating and air conditioning business because he said he was "looking for a bag to just throw the extra pieces of tubing into." I was very satisfied with this product!
I received the ACME Tote Bags for Christmas and they are great! I can easily pack a hand basket of groceries into one bag and I've never needed more than two for all of my shopping. They look great and they hold together well. I've loaded a bag with two quarts of juice and a half gallon of milk (plus other miscellaneous groceries) and I never got the impression that the bag would give in the slightest. As for value, the material of the bags is better and the bags are bigger than similar "plastic saving measures" I've seen in stores, and for not much more either! Overall, I'm very happy with the gift and would recommend it for anyone looking for a simple way to help eliminate some of their everyday waste.
I was a bit surprised at you request for a review as I'm not a new customer but more of a returning customer. I have purchased over 100 of your ACME Bags and have sent numerous people to your site to purchase them. I like the bags very much. The construction is fantastic! I can get more than 3 plastic bags worth of groceries into 1 of my ACME Bags. I made a vow when I first received my bags that I would take them everywhere I go and use them so there would be no more plastic bags in our house. I know how bad plastic bags are for the land fills and want to start doing more to help out.
I love these bags, I only wish I had found them sooner.
The bags are wonderful -- perfectly sized and sturdily constructed. They fold up to the size of a paper grocery bag. I gave one as a gift and it was enthusiastically received. The rest of my order will also be given as gifts tomorrow. I will be buying more for myself.
These bags are great. They are very sturdy and stand on their own for easy loading. I gave them as gifts for they holiday and everyone loved them too!
These bags are great - they're sturdy and have the capacity to hold a lot of groceries. The bag has lots of uses beyond groceries as well - we use it all the time, whether it's taking a change of clothes, shopping in a mall, or bringing things to work. It's very handy! I really like that they can stand on their own - I have some other bags that don't, and it makes it hard to load groceries into them. I'm about to order some more! Thanks for the great product!
I love the bags. They are very sturdy and easy to carry. Well worth the cost and I don't get those nasty little plastic bags.
I love these bags! I live on the second floor, and I like being able to pack the bags really full so I have to make fewer trips up the rickety steps. It's also nice the way the bag stands up so it is easier to pack. And, of course, I like the fact that I am not using plastic bags every time I go to the grocery store.
Great bags. Can hold a ton of groceries! Really love them - in fact, when at the grocery store an employee said, "Oh, these are the nice bags!" I actually gave a few to a friend as a Christmas present. Thanks so much.
The two "Tan" Acme bags I bought are great. They are rugged, and yet very lightweight. They fold up much like a paper bag, and are able to hold tons of groceries. The construction seems solid, and I think they will last for many years. My only complaint is that the tan color is really a mustard-like light yellow. I'm not a huge fan of the color. The photo (at least on my computer screen) makes the "tan" bags look more brownish than they are. Other than that, highly recommend purchasing this bag.
The "grocery" bags look and work great. Now we have to remember to take them with us to the store so that we can use them!
I just bought my 4th Earthtote and I would not go shopping without them. I have never gone without getting many comments from people at the store. The baggers told me they love the bags because they stand upright , unlike many peoples flimsy bags that fall over and are hard to use. These are the best bags ever! Highly recommended!
These are smart bags--good looking, giant capacity, super sturdy, and good for the environment--plus they fold up nicely! I can't quit using them for everything--and they were my gift to EVERYONE this Christmas.
As before theh bags are great!!! I am giving them as extra (little) gifts to my family this year. Thanks and we all support your efforts.
My favorite is the EarthToe Reusable Shopping Bag...I love it...it's heavy duty and holds up...the store clerks love it too...love that it sits up for filling...ordered the hemp bags because of the sales pitch and will have to return them (unused)...they are too soft and pliable to be practical once you're used to the EarthTote...also, ordered the large canvas bag and thought I wasn't going to use it but it turns out to be good for schlepping weird stuff to class (I teach)...so will hang onto it for that...everyone that sees my Earthtote's loves them...you ought to send business cards out with your orders...
I absolutely love these bags! I already had several of the brown color and now ordered 4 more in black. I like the brown because it reminds me of a paper grocery bag, but the black are even prettier!! I absolutely love how they stand up on their own for easy filling, and yet collapse like a paper bag. Many friends and family members have fallen in love with them as well. They hold a lot and are very durable. I use them for toting everything!
I love my bags. I put two in my husband's car and two in my car. We are now training ourselves to actually bring them into the store when we shop...and we are doing a pretty good job of remembering to do that--especially me. :) I LOVE the bag. They are sturdy, just the right size, look nice and I can hardly believe how much plastic we no DO NOT have to bring home with us. Thanks for a great product and I hope you can get the word out to others. I believe your price is fair for the quality of the product you provide.
These bags are great. I bought three and they fit perfectly in my shopping cart. The packer at the checkout counter likes them too. She doesn't have to put two plastic bags together and try to fit them in the cart. She really appreciates the convenience. As do it. No more plastic bags to throw out. And it's easier to remove items from the cart. They're sturdy strong and easy to clean if there is a spill or leak. Good job!
I love the ACME EarthTote. Last week at the grocery store they loaded one with ten 15 oz. cans, five pounds of sugar and five pounds of flour. It held without a problem and the handles are wide enough that I could carry it comfortably. I keep two folded up inside a side pocket on my purse so they are always handy. Great product.
I have been using ACME bags for grocery shopping for several months, with great satisfaction about their toughness and ease of use--all the while rejecting the use of the plastic or paper bags that most shoppers continue to use, to the detriment of our natural environment. I've recently purchased a couple of these bags for each of our adult sons, as a way of promulgating this environmentally-friendly way of reducing use of throwaway plastic & paper bags, and inducing family members to broaden the impact of sustainable practices.
These bags are the best!! I can fit an entire grocery cart in four of these bags. Fewer trips, to and from the car and they are so sturdy - load 'em up. Even the grocery store employees comment on how great they are to work with.
I *love* this bag. It's super heavy duty. It will stand up by itself so you can load groceries. I routinely carry 25+ pounds in it without a problem. The handles are very securely attached. And it folds up nicely when you're done.
These bags are awesome! They are shaped like paper bags and sturdy so it is easy for the grocers to pack them, yet they fit about three times as much weight as a paper bag. The handles are both sturdy and easy on my hands as I transfer the bags from cart to car and car to home. I got the black ones, so they ahve come in handy for other uses. My only complaint is that I find so many other uses for the bags that I am oftentimes short a few bags when I go shopping
My kids were tired of wasting so much plastic with so many water bottles and decided it better economically and money wise to use reusable bottles. My daughter wanted to quit using so many plastic bags for groceries and other items and decided to do her part for the world by having be buy these bags. We are the only ones in this town, that i know of, who are using these bags, which are so much stronger than the plastic ones anyway! So glad we found your site!We tell anyone and everyone who asks about these neat bags about your site. Maybe we can make a difference one bag at time! Happy Holidays! Cynthia Norman
I purchased 4 bags to take the place of all those plastics bags they give out at the store. I keep them stored in the trunk of my car for easy availability for all kinds of shopping, not just groceries. The bags are a very sturdy weight, look good and are the exact size and configuation of a traditional paper bag and much sturdier then those plastic bags. They have a nice extra pocket on the side for your magazines as well. They are a little more expensive then the ones they sell at Whole Foods but I like the design and material better. Now I think I am going to buy one of the insulated ones for frozen and perishable foods.
Hello, I love my bags! I have bought numerous ones in the past.I sent these bags to a friend as a gift. I wanted to take advantage of the promo offer of buy 4 , get one free. But... you only sent 4 bags and did not honor the promo and send the 5th bag.Not sure why???? I was disappointed when my friend 's gift was only for 4 bags. Thanks Carla

I love these bags! They are very durable, easy to pack and hold a lot. A normal grocery trip used to yield about 10 plastic bags. In comparison, I only need 4 ACME bags, with some room to spare. I feel great knowing I am lessening my impact on the planet by doing something so simple and easy. I recommend these bags (and other reusable bags) to family and friends.
All three items I purchased are very high quality. The order was immediately shipped and I received it promptly. Your prices are competitive and I told friends of mine about your website. Kudos to you as a first time customer who will be giving you repeat business! I especially like the bamboo eating utensils which come in the fabric holder. I put them in my backpack and take them with me wherever I go. The stainless steel lunch box is terrific. It keeps food hot and is well insulated although it was not specifically designed as a theroms type lunchbox.
The bags are great! I go to the grocery store and bring home two to three acme bags when I used to come home with 20+ plastic bags. Much easier to walk up three flights of stairs to my apt. I've also used them to run errands around town and it's nice to only carry one bag home instead of a bag from each store. The bags are very durable and I don't have to worry about the gallons of milk and other heavy items ripping handles off. Much easier to carry than plastic bags as well.
I love these bags! I use them for all shopping now! They are almost as large a standard paper bag. They stand upright and stay open while bagging items. They are lightweight, yet sturdy. They stay upright in the car and fold up nicely for storage. At first, I was a little concerned about how the handles would hold up, but I have had no problems (and I pack bags pretty heavy/full). The handles are about an 1 inch wide, thin, and soft (easy on the hands) and have proven to be just has sturdy as the bags. I bought 5 bags for our family and have one dedicated for mixed paper/junk mail recycling and I bought 4 more to give to my mother-in-law for Christmas. Our family has almost eliminated our paper/plastic bag use.
I love this tote very sturdy and hold lots of heavy items with no problem. I totally recommend it.
I have always hated the amount of plastic bags I accumulate. Having raised five of my own and countless foster children, imagine how many bags I've used! I purchased reusable shopping bags this year for my grown children and myself for Christmas gifts. I began using mine as soon as they arrived. Oh how I love them. They hold much more than a grocery bag and are so much easier to carry. My life just gets easier every day. I'll have to order one for my 89 year old mom! Sue S.
I originally bought 4 of these bags for my grocery shopping and loved them so much I bought 2 more. They are very durable and hold a large amount. The straps are great- can carry as a handle or put over the shoulder. They also fold up nicely so they are easy to carry into the store. Best of all I get comments every time I use them from the grocery baggers that these are the best re-usable bags they have ever seen because they stand up like a paper grocery bag and make it so easy to load. I am going to buy more to give as presents this holiday season.
I'm a single guy who goes the grocery store a few times a week and one of these bags usually has plenty of space for me. They're very spacious, look good, and help the environment. They're collapsible and stay in my trunk when I'm not using them. Great product.
I LOVE these bags! They hold so much stuff and are so strong and durable. I highly recommend them. It is such a great feeling when the cashier asks "Paper or Plastic" and I can hand them my bags instead. Thank you!
I love my bags! I've had them for a year now and they are holding up great. I just bought a bunch to give them out as Christmas presents. I want everyone I know to start using them.
Love this bag! The bag boys at our local supermarket say it is better than the ones they sell themselves. We can get a week of groceries (a lot!) in 4 bags.
I love these bags! I bought 4 to use when we lived in Germany. I always get questions about where I got them. The bags are so strong and it is amazing how much they can hold. I just ordered many more for Christmas gifts. How nice to give a gift that is good for the environment and useful too.
I bought canvas bags 10 years ago for grocery shopping and was not pleased with their lack of rididity. So my criterion for the purchase of these bags was that they held there shape when empty. They came through with flying colors and as an added plus are sturdy, good looking and make grocery lugging much easier. I am very pleased with the bags.....now if they would only make a larger version!
I love my bags. I bought 6 about a year ago and use them all the time. People always ask where I got them and baggers always like how they stand up and how much they can pack into them. I just bought 6 more to "wrap" Christmas presents in. My only concern is that my original bags are starting to get a line of wear on the inside where I re-fold them for storage when I'm not using them. I hope they do not tear there...I'll let you know. I hope to get years and years of use from them. Thanks, Stephanie Herron
We love these bags. They are the BEST! They hold so much and are very easy to fill because they stand on their own. We bought a variety of bags and these are my favorite to use for groceries.
Love the bag! Stands up, just like in the video, is very well made and can hold a lot of stuff. I got the tan and the color is not very attractive. It's sort of a yellowy-greeny-tan. The next ones I get will be black.
I love these bags and use them for more than just shopping. We loaded them with items to take for Thanksgiving and other trips. They can hold a lot and are easy to carry. Very durable. Thank you!
I bought two of the Acme shopping bags, which look just like the standard paper grocery bags. This is the first time I'd bought and tried to implement "reusable" shopping bags. I was surprised to find that I really like the change. Environmental benefits notwithstanding, the bags are stronger and easier to carry than traditional paper, hold far more than traditional plastic bags and make me look smart in the process. Who could ask for more?
I have been very pleased with these bags. Like many of the reviewers who've posted, I love how well they imitate the conventional paper bag--very easy to pack. I find that check out is much quicker because the baggers aren't trying to figure out how to pack your groceries in a shapeless canvas bag. They also hold a lot! Typically, I'm able to get 5 days worth of groceries into 3 of these bags (I bought four). Kudos to Reusable Bags for excellent customer service too.
I love these bags. I bought four from you several months ago, and purchased four more this order. Everyone comments on them, even the baggers at the grocery store! One even said, "I wish we offered these bags instead of the one we currently have.".. I will be using these for all my shopping needs, thanks for offering a great product!
This is my second order of these bags - I found they are very useful for more than just groceries. They are very sturdy and hold an awful lot. I'm always getting compliments on them. Grocery baggers like them because they stand up on their own like a paper bag would, so are easy to fill. I'm anticipating a very long life for these bags, so feel they are a great value as well.
These bags are sturdy, but lightweight and fold up so they're not bulky. They hold a lot of groceries, and the best part is they stand up on their own for ease of packing groceries. I bought these in addition to smaller bags for some variety.
I absolutely LOVE these bags! They are so convenient. And I am frequently asked by other shoppers where I found them. They are a great value!
I purchased your Acme Bags Earth tote (reusablbe shopping bags) I love them and have even got comments on them while useing them in the store. I tell everyone where I purchased them. I like the fact that they stay open when putting grocery's in them. The handle is great and very strudy, since I tend to pack heavy. I like that they fold up easly and do not take up a lot of space.
We ordered 3 earth tote bags on a trial basis and have only used them a couple of times, but they are great! They are very sturdy and even though the same size as a brown paper bag, they seem to hold much more. We used them to transport food and wine at Thanksgiving and many people at the gathering wanted to know where we got them. Would highly recommend!
This is my favorite bag so far. I get more comments at the grocery store when I use these. They are really heavy duty and hold a lot of weight.
They're great. I love that I fit all of my groceries in six bags and that they all stand up in my hatchback without falling over! I'm thinking about buying them for all my family members for Christmas.
I love these bags. I bought these ones for a xmas gift this year because I love them so much. They're sturdy and very well constructed. I fill them with at least 4 plastic bags worth of groceries and the handles are fine holding the heavy load. If they get scuffed or dirty just toss in the wash- but don't put in the dryer. I can tell these are going to last forever! The baggers at the store love them since they're so easy to stand up and fill like a paper grocery bag. I think they're well worth the investment and you feel great everytime you use them. I take them to Target, Costco, everywhere.
We just love our ACME shopping bags. We have had cashiers comment on how good they work. We also were impressed with the reasonable shipping charge. We have been telling anyone who will listen about them. We had been looking at other bags costing up to three times as much but are sure glad we found your web site.
Bags have been wonderful. They seem to hold more than a normal paper bag, and they are very durable. Highly recommended.
The bags are very sturdy. After three trips to the grocery store, I am delighted to have no paper bags to fold and put in the pantry or recycle. My husband, a customer, two clerks, and a store manager all commented on what nice bags they are. The manager even said it cut his bag bill! They hold so much that I have to be careful not to fill them up with cans and such or they are a bit heavy so a smaller version would be better for the elderly but this is a great bag for general use.
I have been coveting my neighbor's black ACME bags for years, and now I have one and will be giving them as gifts for birthdays and holidays. They are a perfect size and quality of cotton.
Your heavy duty earth tote bag is just perfect for us! It's sturdy enough to easily deal with a whole bag full of canned goods. The stitching is flawless and the cloth really is heavy-duty. The flat bottom stands up in the back of our truck and doesn't fall over and spill the groceries. (We stretch a bungee cord across the truck bed, feeding it through the looped handles of the bags, from a hook on one side of the truck to the other.That keeps the bags from sliding if we have to stop suddenly). We'll definitely be buying more! Bev L. California
I love these bags and use them for everything...not just groceries. Every time I have used one of these bags at a store, I have received a positive comment from the cashier as to how heavy-duty they are and how well they stand up on their own which helps with packing my items. I have machine washed this item in cold water on a gentle cycle and air-dried with no problem. You cannot go wrong by purchasing this bag. It will last you forever. Thanks Reusable Bags for offering such a wonderful product!
Thanks for your prompt delivery of my wonderful acme shopping bags----I've impulsively given away three of them to special friends and relatives as they admired them, and will probably have to reorder in order to have a second one to use!
These bags are simply amazing!!! They are stylish and functional and are definitely, hands down, build to last a lifetime. I was truly amazed at how tough and durable they were at such a reasonable price.
I purchased four of these bags a few months ago and liked them so much that I recently purchased four more. They are so sturdy and they hold a lot of groceries. The store personnel like them, because they stand up, making it easy to place the groceries in them. I have started taking them everywhere I shop, not just to the grocery store. Great bag!
I get compliments on these bags whenever I use them. Needless to say, this in unusual for utilitarian reusable bags. These stand up straight, like paper bags, but hold a lot more. I can load these up with gallons of milk or bottles of seltzer with no worries. You simply can't overload the bag. The side pockets are a nice convenience. You can stuff receipts in there, or things you need to keep flat. I use only these bags when I grocery shop.
This is a GREAT bag! I bought four for myself and four as a gift. They hold so much I usually only use 2 per shopping trip. I am amazed at how much they hold (about 3-4 plastic bags worth) and are still easy to carry. They DO stand up on their own, even after being folder and waded up. These are DEFINITELY worth the high price!
Very durable bag that folds up. It will stand up by itself, and will hold in moisture or liquids that might spill. It is much better than pet recycled bags offered in stores, but should be because of the price.
I love these bags so much I bought them for everyone for Christmas. My husband, who first thought I was nuts, now loves them too and carries one everywhere he goes.
This is my favorite bag so far. The bag is really easy to pack since it stands open on its own. It is also easy for the grocers to use so I don't feel such a need to pack my own bag. It's very stong so go ahead and shove as much as you can carry in it.
