I bought 6 of these bags in July. One was promptly replaced by customer service when bottom seam came apart in first two months of use. I had to contact customer service again for another one with same problem with bottom seam coming apart today. I have 6 of these bags I purchased over 2 years ago & they are still going strong. Very disappointed that they look similar, but evidently something is not the same??? Customer service has been very good, but disappointing that I've had to contact them again. This bag is similar to a Kroger bag in size, & reduces chances of baggers filling them too heavy for me to lift.
I have been using these for a decade and own about two dozen. Of course I use them for shopping, but I also use them for storing large amounts of produce in my fridge such as romaine, okra, or green beans--they keep food longer than plastic. I keep one in my luggage, five in my purse, one in my car, one in my bike bag. I wash them often, and although a few have eventually torn at the seam, most keep for years! One year I gave them as stocking stuffers to everyone in my family. And when the Sudanese farmer at the farmers market liked it, I gave one to her. Love this product!
These bags are a bit smaller than I thought they would be and I wish they had longer handles/straps so that I could put them over my shoulder. Otherwise good sturdy reusable bag, love the stuff sack, it stuffs really small and stays in the sack which is nice as I have other that have a stuff sack but they always come undone and these ones seem to have that problem fixed!
Very disappointed in this product. Thought from all the reviews that it'd be a great product; however, one of the most essential features I have found in a reusable shopping bag is the ability to put them over your shoulder to lift them when they are full. The armholes are too tight to be able to do that here. I just bought a bunch of these to share with friends and family and it will just cost me even more if I want to return them so I feel stuck. Really wish I had seen someone say this about the bags before. I never would have guessed because I have never seen a company make one that can't go over your arm before. Hopefully this review will help someone else.
After about 7 years, still going strong. This Bag has come in handy so many times and I absolutely love it. I'm planning on buying a bunch and including them in present bags for family and friends to start reusing bags.
Just had these 5 of these bags shipped to my address in Canada. Even with the low Cdn $ and higher shipping costs,these bags are still a very good value.
It was exactly what I hoped for. Looks well made of thin nylon that seems very strong. Open it's the perfect size for groceries. Best is the way it packs up, when I quickly pull it into the pouch after use, it is still small enough for a back pants pocket.
Love these bags! You wouldn't know how strong they are by looking at,and holding, them. They are ALMOST indestructible. The only reason I occasionally replenish my supply is because I lose one once in a while (or they grow legs and walk away).
Very small and best of all it packs into a pouch that is integral to the bag. No more scrounging about to find the pouch (or worse, losing the pouch). Large bag will hold pretty much everything I need it to - and these are small enough that I can carry two with me everywhere I go.
strong, good size, and folds down really small. great purchase
The perfect solution for guys who don't want to carry those large bags around and forget them at home. I keep these in my car door. Now I even remember to take when I go to Target and other locations when I might have more than I can carry in hands. I just stuff into my pocket and take out if I needed. After one year of use, no tears. The grocery clerks freak when I keep stuffing them. 25 lbs is for real.
I've used these regularly for at least several years now. They carry good-sized (and sometimes heavy) loads and have held up well. I am ordering five more today - but in one of the brighter colors since the darker ones are a bit too easy for me to misplace. (I only have a few left from my original order since I went with the darker colors initially and have since misplaced them!)
I do enjoy colors and hope they come out with a few more in future. :-)
These work great.Small and easy to carry. Regarding size they hold my groceries better than plastic and won't rip like plastic handles can. They fit perfectly over the hooks for the plastic bags @ the self check. I know some people complained that it is hard to refold them back into the pouch but I just stuff the bag back in with two fingers,works fine.I like the small pouch because it fits in my coat pocket.
I love this product and LOVE the material its made from. What ever shopping I am doing that is not grocery shopping, I take these with me. I love getting asked where I get them from, b/c I love directing them to this site. Thank you for an awesome product !
I've been using these bags for a long time now, and I love them. They're tiny and easy to fit in my purse. They carry a ton of stuff. My dog chewed one up so I had to order a replacement immediately. Can't live without them.
I love these bags! I gave them as gifts for Christmas and they were a big hit. Re folding them is very easy and they function just like plastic bags so they are sometimes more practical than a tote bag. Love them and will continue to purchase more for myself and gifts in the future.
I bought one of each color to put in my gift baskets this year.. I will tell you that everyone that received one LOVED the idea of a bag to just have, hanging around.
I LOVE these I use assistance dogs and go to dog shows, and other events I leave one attached to my dog show bag, and all the vests I have. they come in super handy and are strong!! recommend to anyone on the go and who doesn't want plastic bags hanging around.
I love these bags. I have about 10 to throw in my purses & car. The built in pocket is perfect. The bags are very sturdy and carry heavy loads of stuff. Nice soft material too, not stiff. These are my favorite reusable bags. I wish they came in a larger size too.
These bags are awesome. I love that they fold up into their own little compact sleeve. Since they are so nice and lightweight (but still very strong/durable) I usually carry 3 in my purse anywhere I go. This year, I bought several to gift to some friends. Because of the material, they don't tend to get dirty, but when I have needed to wash them, they easily clean up in some soapy water and hang dry. Easy way to be an eco-friendly shopper.
My city has outlawed plastic grocery bags, and the Reuseit Workhorse is a perfect replacement; same size, same handle configuration, same carrying capacity. Once opened, though, I haven't bothered to try to get them back into their pouches...I use them too often!
I ordered 4 of your nylon bags and am very pleased with the product. I already owned one, so expected good quality. Two I gave to my daughter and she is pleased with the small size and weight. My one recommendation would be to include simple instructions for refolding. It can be confusing the first time you try it.
Thank you for the quick delivery and the one price shipping.
This bag folds down to a very small size, and yet it's really strong and roomy for carrying things. Fits in my purse so well. I also bought other larger bags in the same order, but I will only buy these from now on....
I love these bags. They are compact and I just keep them in my purse all the time. They also wash easily and are constructed well. My husband can't believe I keep four bags in my purse all the time. It feels great to be organized AND eco-friendly.
LOVE LOVE LOVE my reuseit grocery bags! They are FABULOUS! I am very satisfied with the product. They are durable and hold a whole ton of stuff in just one bag! I've gotten lots of great comments on them at my local market and just love to make a statement with them when I go shopping! Great product and I will definitely be ordering more soon!
I bought the eggplant color, which I love! These really do hold quite a lot of groceries and they're deceptively strong. I also love that these are easily folded in the attached pouch, and two of these easily fit in my small purse. I would buy these again and recommend these to my friends.
Loved how easy it was to stuff back into a small bag and can attach on hooks or whatever for ease of carrying. The colors are great too.
I wish the handles were a little thinner and the bags a little larger, but otherwise a great product. Plan on purching more as gifts.
I live in a very populated majoy city and our Mayor has on the next committee meeting to vote on a ban of plastic grocery bags. Your workhorse original bluesign fabric is perfect for what is come in our near future.
I have already put them to good use; groceries, breads, shopping for casual clothing, small tools, newspaper, returns, etc. Positive areas are foldable to pouch, strong, accessable in left in your purse and all those wonderful colors.
If you have a Sams or Cosco in your city, you alread know that you need to try to find a box to put items in to transport to your car. These bags hold so many of items as well as some large.
I highly recommend them. Thanks so much.
This bag is the bomb. It packs takes up hardly any room in my purse, but when I open it up it holds an amazing amount of stuff. I have given a bag to many people and everyone loves it. A great stocking stuffer!
This is my second order of this product. It really is extremely convenient for carrying a large range of products, provided that they are not very bulky. I use it for grocery shopping, gift/ garment shopping and many more- I have 1 or 2 workhorses permanently in my bag and also I keep a couple of them in the car. They are lightweight yet sturdy and well made and they can be easily cleaned. I would certainly recommend them!
I LOVE THESE BAGS! Received one as a gift several years ago. Have used it every day since as my briefcase, my lunch bag, my shopping bag, you name it! It has carried all kinds of things and has held up very well! It can be folded up into the neat little pocket, but mine is ALWAYS in use! Very durable! Can't believe they are so inexpensive for the quality! Just purchased three more...another for myself and two for gifts. Buy one! In fact, buy several!
These are very nice. It is fun to pull shopping bags out of your pants pockets at the checkout. Tough nylon.
This is at least the sixth time I've ordered your Workhorse bags. I use them for everything, and I seem to keep giving them away to friends and family who've been buying the 99 cent junkie bags at the grocery stores. When they're on sale, I buy even more to put aside for gifts. These bags are easy to store and carry, you can throw them in the washer without a worry, they carry a ton, and they come in great colors. They are a pleasure to use, and it's always a pleasure to buy from reuseit.com. Keep the value coming, you guys!
These bags are great! Durable, washable, convenient...
I am known as the "Bag Lady". There is always a couple in my purse, bike saddlebags, car.... I never have to look far. I use them for more than grocery shopping. Where ever I need to "gather stuff". I love the colors for gift giving.
These bags hold a lot of weight. The best thing: I always have at least one in my purse - they probably weigh less than a lipstick. I always have good intentions of using my reuseable bags (from other stores) but always manage to forget them in my car (I store them in my trunk). They also wash well.
My daughter wouldn't use reusable bags until I bought her one of these. The colours are gorgeous! They are a just a little tight to fit back into the attached pouch, but I find it helps to fold rather than stuff. The fabric is lightweight and doesn't look particularly strong, but time will tell! They are certainly well made and I've used mine a lot.
The biggest problem with any resuable bags is remembering to take them with you! These are by far the most compact folding shopping bags I've ever had so there's no excuse not to keep one or two in your pocket, bag or car at all times. And the bright colours make them easy to locate in the murky depths of my handbag!
These reusable bags are the best! They are strong and sturdy, that handles are a great length, and they're easy to stuff back into their tiny little pouch!
I keep one in my purse at all times. For hitting the mall or the grocery store, I always have this bag with me so I don't have to use plastic ones.
I bought a few for my Mom for xmas, we'll see if she loves them as much as I do!
I love these bags. Great colors and they fold into such a compact size, I can carry 3 in my purse. I love that the fold into an attached pouch. They are great when I take to the mall or the market. They hold a good amount of items. They are also a great price.
I love these bags. I carry them all the time and use them for shopping, as an extra bag for purse overflow and to separate my exercise clothes from other things in my backpack. They come in great colors which is part of the fun!
I bought 8 of these 18 months ago, they are all still in excellent condition, they work great. One bag has a frayed seem where it connects to the storage pouch, no real effect on usage. They can handle as many groceries as will fit. I've only lost one so far, you have to keep an eye on baggers to ensure they don't accidentally keep any un-needed bags. They always turn heads at the store. Since buying my original set, we have additions to our family so I need more bags to handle bigger grocery trips. Buy these bags, you won't be disappointed.
I keep at least two to three bags in my purse for use anywhere, anytime. I have used these bags for the library, groceries, shopping, the Farmer's Market, etc....and they have held up through the years that I have had them - no rips at all! I have given these bags as holiday gifts to my kids teachers, and family and friends. They beat out any other bags of this type because they are by far the easiest bags to fold back up. No toggle to deal with, no fancy way of folding - simply scrunch it up and pack it into its attached pouch. I am adding once again to my collection and stocking up for any last minute gifts I need to give. 5 stars for sure!
I have used the nylon acme bags workhorses for at least a decade and love them. The most recent ones are in eggplant and I love them. The only suggestion I can make is to have your manufacturer sear the edges of the nylon before sewing. When they fail it is because the unseared edges fray and the stitching simply pulls out. Back in the days of Frostline Kits when I could make a whole sleeping bag out of ripstop nylon, the first step was to get out a candle and heat-sear ALL the raw edges. You should do no less as it is a shame to throw away perfectly good bags because the unsealed edges fatally frayed.
Thanks for a great product.
It always with me in my pocket
I have been looking for a good replacement for plastic and paper bags for a while now. I wanted something that I could reuse all the time, washable, and a neutral color that didn't have a stores logo all over it. I also wanted something that was reasonably priced. I have found it. The size of the bag isn't too small or big, like a normal size plastic bag. There are a variety of colors to pick from. I choose the brown and I am glad I did. I can wash them when they get dirty. I have already used them twice grocery shopping and feel better by not getting all those plastic bags I used to. They can hold quite a bit of weight with out feeling like they are going to rip or break. I got three 2 liter soda bottles in one without a problem at all. They are so small and light when folded up which I like. I can pop them into the little spaces in my car so I have them handy whenever I go shopping. I can also get one or two in my small purse that I carry. I am so happy that I found these and actually ordered them. I feel better about helping out the earth by using them and happy with the value of them. If you have any doubts about them just order one to see for yourself...but I know you will end up getting more. I got six of them myself and I wouldn't hesitate to get more if I need them. I am thinking of getting them for other people as gifts as well.
I took them to my grocer and told them we'd be guinea pigs together and if they did not find them to be as user friendly as they appeared to be, I would not use them again.
They worked perfectly on the stand used for their plastic bags, as they were designed to do. They are easy to carry, stronger than the plastic bags, and light as a feather.
I am recommending them to my friends.
I LOVE these reusable bags. I have a set of four, I always keep one in my purse for everyday use, the others in a stuff sack by the door for grocery shopping. I even gave some as stocking stuffers last Christmas (they were a hit!). During reuseit.com's end of year sale, they were on sale for $3.95 (I think). So I bought 4 more to use as gift bags. I figure you spend that much on a decorated paper gift bag, at least this way the recipient can actually USE the bag (for something other than the next holiday/birthday/wedding). Place the gift in, tie it off with a nice white satin ribbon, and viola! A completely waste free and reusable gift wrap! It's been such a great gift wrap that I've used them all up for birthdays and showers. Now I'm just waiting for the next sale or promo so I can buy some more. Thanks for making such a wonderful, quality product.
No more running back to my car to grab my large, reusable bags. They are small enough to keep two of these in my purse so they're always handy and incredibly strong, as well. I've had a number of people ask about where to purchase. Colors are great! There is also a little fabric "hook," which you could probably use to keep one attached to a quick release key chain as they're pretty light and compact. Plan to purchase more to keep on hand and give away to my friends and neighbors when they ask about them. Even keeping just one on hand sure helps to cut down on my plastic bag usage. Great one, ReUseIt!!
My husband travels internationally, a lot! He uses the workhorse tote bag all of the time. Most grocery stores in Europe charge for a bag, so my husband uses his own. Also, he has used it for an extra tote for bringing home gifts for us that will not fit in his luggage! The tote is compact and easily fits in his briefcase. This was a great purchase that he uses all of the time.
carries a lot; folds up into a tiny space
I had seen these bags before and I thought they were so much fun. I showed them to my husband and his reaction was "no way!"....a bag tucked inside itself?? It can't be done. HA! I was ordering Earthtotes anyway, so I got some of the "cute, little, impossible blue bags" just for my husband. As soon as the order arrived he made a direct line to those blue bags and disappeared into the den. He emerged with all of the blue bags open and looking quite healthy. Next I told him to "stuff it"....and he did and he is now a believer in the "cute, little impossible blue bags"... In fact, he has them all in his car!
I love this bag! I have 5 of them and they are fabulous. They fold up into a tiny pouch, easy to keep in my purse and hold way more than a standard plastic bag.
I just love these bags! They are lightweight and fold up easily into a small little pouch. I am proud to show them off at the store. They are durable and easily washed or wiped out. And they hold a ton! I have to ask the clerks not to overfill them because they will hold so much that they can get heavy. Also the colors are so pretty! I have had people ask me where I got such nice bags. I highly recommend purchasing several of these bags.
Ordered the Workhorse bags to give as birthday gifts to three Aries friends. Kept one for myself, of course. Love the little bag to keep in my purse. I have lots of large bags for groceries but always seem to forget to take a bag when just running in a store to pick up something small. The workhorse is perfect!!!!
It's great! don't even notice it in my handbag, extremely lightweight material, yet sturdy enough for heavy grocery items. It scrunches up so small and I feel super smart at the market to be able to pull it out and say no thanks to the plastic bags. Thanks REUSEIT.com
This was a second purchase of these bags to have more available. They are strong, light and fold into a small, very convenient packet which easily fits into a pocket. The only problem I have is figuring out how to refold it into the neat package it is in on arrival. I could use a sheet with directions! Otherwise, the perfect purchase.
These bags are super strong and just the right size for hauling groceries home in, the name Workhorse is fitting. They are the same size as the plasic bags you get at the grocer, but MUCH stronger. The handles are a comfortable width (I've small hands). Love how they are so compact - fit great in the recycled snack/stuff sack and they are washable, no need to worry about what/who may have touched the bag prior to putting your purchases in one. I have had strangers ask me where I've purchased the bags and even asked if they could 'check them out'. These bags are a great way to minimize the use of plastic or paper bags. I do wish I had found these bags along time ago.
I bought 5 of them in the jewel tone colors when they had them on special. I absolutely LOVE them. They hold up so well. They are colorful in my shopping cart. They are easy to carry into the store. I love how they fold up neatly into their pouch. Not to mention they don't come out all wrinkled like some other brands. Right now I have 4 in my purse so they are always with me. The 5th one is in my tote bag for whenever I go to the park with my daughter and I need a bag. I hope they come on special again cause I'd love to buy more. My grocery store lets you bring in 10 re-usable bags which they give you a .06 cent credit for each.
Love these bags. I keep two in my purse so I always have them with me, no forgetting. It's amazing how much you can fit inside & they're strong, so much better in every way than plastic.
I recently ordered several Workhorse Original bags in various colors. I love the fact that these bags are light as air and can be tucked into pockets or purses. Unlike bulkier bags, this means that they are almost always at hand for spur-of-the moment shopping trips. Even for planned shopping I find I often forget to lug along the more structured bags. These hold a surprising amount of weight and wash up well (and air dry). The fact that they are almost weightless means that I can forgo the plastic bags in the produce department (or farmers market)and just drop the produce directly into a Workhouse bag. The colors are bright and make them even more of a pleasure to use.
I love these bags. I stash a couple folded up in my purse for quick trips to the grocery store. You can put a ton of stuff in them, more than a regular plastic bag can hold, and not worry about tearing the bag. And they're multi-purpose! I use them to carry lunch, clothes, shoes, my kid's toys. And if it gets dirty, just throw them in the wash! Makes my life easier without having to throw them away.
Love the Workhorse Bag! I put one in each of our cars and in my suitcase for travel. It is the perfect size when folded and open in use. It is also strong and you do not have to worry about it ripping. Great find!!!
These bags are a must have all purpose bag. These bags are made to last. They are durable, lightweight and easy to clean. These should be a staple for anyone trying to reduce plastic shopping bags. Love them!
I have been looking for a product EXACTLY like this for a very long time! I wanted a reuseable bag that collapsed into its own pouch, which I could then clip to my purse. This is perfect. Every other reuseable bag I have purchased gets left in the car or I forget it in the bottom of my purse. With this I am able to see it clipped to the outside of my purse, and I dont need to worry about losing the pouch because its attached. I love this bag, and now I don't have a huge pile of grocery/dept. store plastic bags taking up space in my cupboards.
Your bags are well-designed and long-lasting. They are comfortable to carry — no abrasive handles — and so compact I always have one in my purse. I almost never need a plastic or paper bag anymore. They have outlasted other brands I purchased in the past. Unfortunately they are not loss-proof!
These bags are awesome - so compact/portable, so unisex, so sturdy, so washable - everything you need to remember to take your bags to the store! I plan on replacing all my cheap bags with these. Whether you buy on sale (as I did) or pay full price, these bags will more than make up for their cost in the amount of plastic bags you avoid using!
I am another satisfied customer, these bags have it all. They are well constructed, very compact, lightweight, colorful and fun to use everywhere I go. I took advantage of a half price sale and bought two dozen to use as stocking stuffers next Christmas. I love giving useful gifts and these will curb the use of hundreds of plastic bags - SCORE!
I didn't have a packable reusable bag, but now that I have it, I don't know how I lived without. I love this, it packs nicely into it's little pouch and I can keep it in my purse for when I forget to grab another, or don't bring enough bags in-it's perfect!
I love everything about these bags! The best part about them is that I can easily fit all 4 of mine in my small purse and they're so small & lightweight I forget they're in there till someone asks "paper or plastic?" Cashiers & baggers are always amazed when I say "Neither, I brought my own," and whip one out of my purse & open it. The bags are very sturdy and hold a lot more than plastic bags. Once I empty the bags at home, my kids like to shove them back into their built-in pouches, then I set them on the counter near my back door so I can grab them on my way out. I also do all the shopping for my mom since she doesn't drive, so I got her a set of bags in a different color. She loves the bags also.
Everytime I take my "Workhorse" out of my purse, someone makes a comment. When I open it up the comments really flow. It is so handy! We had purchased bags at our local grocery store for bringing our groceries home. But it seemed that more often than not we forgot them at home. I just love it when the bag person askes me "plastic or paper". I pull out my little packet, open it up and reply,"neither thank you, I brought my own". As soon as my purchases are unpacked, my workhorse goes back into my purse until I need it again. Just using it is a good way to advertise it. Thank you for all you are doing to make our world better.
I keep this bag in my purse at all times and always have a bag for items at checkout. I just ordered two more as gifts! I've used this bag for over a year for all different weights and shapes and it still holds up really well.
I first purchased the Workhorse Reusable bag when looking for a bag to use outside of my grocery shopping experiences. I am particularly fond of it at the mall or other retail venues because of its unassuming nature. I am a male and purchased the black bag which allows me to avoid having to carry around the store's dealt out plastic to hold my new purchases and do so unassumingly. I highly recommend this bag for its ability to fold up into a easily-portable compact size, ease of cleaning and great carrying capacity. Grab up one of these, keep it in the cup holder of your car and bring it in with you to any store where you would normally be given a bag to carry your purchases. Cheers!
Love this bag. Holds a ton, very durable & even guys will carry it. We use them as giveaway prizes on our office sustainability programs.
These bags are so durable, yet light weight at the same time. I keep a bunch in my car and grab one every time I go into a store.
I keep in in my purse and have used it several times. I love the way it folds up so neatly.
I received one of these free with my order. I love it! It fits easily in my purse, and I use it for quick trips to the store. I plan to buy more and pitch the cheap bags that I already have from the grocery/discount/drug stores I frequent. I never remember to take them out of my trunk anyway!
These bags are very sturdy and about the same size at the average plastic bag from the grocery store. I love the way they self store in the tiny size. I keep one in my purse and usually have one in a coat pocket because they are easy to carry. Great for those unplanned quick stops at the grocery or drug store.
I use these bags all the time. They fold up really small, so I can keep several in my purse. I use them for everything, and love that I don't have to "remember" to take them, because they are already in my purse when I leave the house. I have been using them for over a year, and they still look brand new. They are very durable, and wash well.
I have been using these bags for 4 yrs now. Hubby loves them too. They don't just fold into a pouch, the pouch is attached so no extra pouch to loose or snaps/velcro to close up, get lost, snagged, etc. It is designed to mirror a plastic store shopping bag so keep that in mind for sizing. My husband always keeps one in his pocket - they are never cumbersome becaus the squish down. We have given these as gifts and almost weekly someone asks me about it so I refer them to reuseit! I should get commission on these bags since I talk about them alot. The other so-called store sold reusable bags are ho-hum and probably wouldn't last a yr & can't be washed. No worries here.

Not only are these bags as sturdy as the original workhorse bags, they fold up just a little bit smaller so they're easier to keep in your purse. I get complements on these bags wherever I use them - people can't believe its a full size grocery bag when I start to unfold it. The handles are comfortable and I like that they are just part of the bag's construction, not sewn on afterward. I would buy these again.
I use this bag much more than I thought I would! We've used it for holding library books, taking items back to store for returns, grabbing the mail, nice to have in a diaper bag, holding kids toys, and so. Durable and functional!
I now own 3 and keep them in my purse. Very convenient and sturdy grocery bags. I have no more lose bags laying around in the truck of my car.
These bags are wonderful. When they are folded up, they fit in my purse with room to spare. They hold everything that I need them to. I take them to the farmers market with me, and they are very sturdy and comfortable when I carry my groceries 1 mile home.
I love that I can keep them in my purse. I was always forgeting the totes in the car. The workhorse bags hold quite a lot. I bought extras at the sale price to use as wrapping paper in the future. That way I will be giving two presents to the person instead of just one.
Helpful lil bag. I store it in my purse for occasions where i need it to carry something. You never know when that will happen. I love that it folds up so easily and compact. A pretty shiny red as well.
I love this bag when i'm going for a few items. It conceals nicely in the pocket and will hold a lot of weight. I use it in conjunction with the Heavy Duty XL Hemp Tote that I also purchased here. Good combination.
I bought these bags to be part of their Christmas gifts. The bags are a beautiful color and are well made. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Very practical and convenient. Small enough to put it in really every pocket, but sturdy enough to hold one large paper-bag's content worth. Got this as a freebie for my Father's Day order and couldn't be happier. Especially the handles are well designed. With these kind of fold-able bags that's often a weak-spot (too narrow and so they "cut" into your hand), not with this one - the handles are pretty wide, so the bag is very easy to carry and even with heavy content it won't feel awkward in your hand.
I have been using the bags for a couple of weeks and love them! They are very compact and easy to re-fold.
I ordered 4 different bags and I love all of them. The Pack'n'tote insulated bag has been a lifesaver for my cold items during the heat of summer. The straps are long enough that I can carry it on my shoulder and still have both hands to get other items. The workhorse bags are wonderful too. They can hold a lot and the straps are wider so you can carry them on your arm and they won't cut into your skin like plastic will. I am well please with all of the bags that I orderd and can't believe I didn't get some sooner.
I purchased this bag to be specifically used for places like the mall. I chose the black Workhorse bag because as a guy it folds up small enough to carry in your pocket and is inconspicuous as you carry your purchases around in it. One trip to the mall and you could easily find yourself with 4 or 5 different bags that upon returning to your house have little to no use after the fact. The workhorse bag is a wonderful and environmentally friendly substitute for this exact situation. It is washable and holds a useful amount of purchases. Anyone who buys this bag will NOT be disappointed!
I keep one of these in my purse and use it all the time. It folds up so small, but still holds more than you'd expect.
I wasn't sure I was going to like this bag, and after using it I am in LOVE with it! It fits perfectly in my pocket or in my purse and holds everything I need at the checkout. I love the fact it folds down into such a small size and yet it is a strong, durable bag. I am new to reusablebags.com and will be back again.
These reusable bags are the best. They open and close in a snap. They're light weight, durable and they fold up so small that I just throw them in my purse and I never have to use plastic shopping bags!
We ordered the refoldable ACME Workhorse bags and had them silkscreened with the local preschool's logo. They look so great and are being sold to parents, family and friends to help reduce the cost of the Spring field trips. What a wonderful product!
I have a number of these and have given some as gifts. I keep one in my purse, another in the camera case...They fold so nice & small that it is a no-brainer to always have one handy. Have not had them too long, so longevity and keeping clean are not issues I can weigh in on.
I recently ordered 4 ACME Workhorse bags - 3 to give as gifts and 1 more for myself. I purchased my first bag while on a trip a couple of years ago and I've been carrying it in my purse since that time. It's amazing how much these little bags can hold!
I'm writing this review a little late: I have had these bags for about 4 years now! These bags are awesome! Even though I use them every time we shop, they still look like new. They stand up in the cart = easy loading; and can handle a ton of weight. Aesome bags!
I'm kind of confused about the reviews saying the bags aren't easy to fold into the little pocket carrier. True, it will never lay flat like it did when you bought it. But who cares? It takes 2 secs to shove the bag into the pouch and flip over the top like an old school sandwich bag. I have never seen a better more compact design. Also, the reviews mentioning tears is def not the norm with normal use. If this happens use the 100% Lifetime Guarantee. The bag will fit in your pocket (about the size of the palm of your hand) or can be attached using the carabiner tag. I use them in any situation where you would use the plastic grocery size bag. Throw them in the wash when soiled. I've given these several times as gifts and the recipients always asked for more. My mistake is I only give out two at a time. That says it all! They are simply the best!
Reusable bags sent this to me as a gift with my large order last Christmas. I've used it over a year now and it has been my favorite bag by far. I keep it wrapped up in my purse and when I forget to bring in my regular bags or need an extra I pull it out and unfold it. It has saved me from having to use plastic many, many times. As I said, I've had it for over a year now. It is well constructed and looks the same as when I got it. It's shaped like the plastic ones so if you are checking yourself out you can loop it over those metal hangers the plastic ones are stored on. It folds so small and it's so lightweight, it hardly takes up any space in my purse. I feel like it's a good value for the price because of the convenience of being able to stash it in my purse and forget about it. It is just really handy.
I finally got my husband to agree to carry one of these bags in the pocket of his coat. He sometimes shops on the way home and often forgot to bring in the bags he keeps in the car. I think he was resistant because he thought the bag would be too bulky for his pocket. He was so pleased with how tiny this bag is when folded up and how big it was once he unfolded it. I think I might even convince him to carry a few more.
I love my workhorse bags! I was given one as a gift a few years ago and when I lost it, I was totally bummed. I got two this time so I don't have to worry about that again!
I just love the bags that I bought, I could not be happier they work great.
Folds up so easily and so small, I can have a bag with me at all times, even in a small purse. Great product. The only caveat - the straps aren't long enough to hang over the shoulder.
The bags are wonderful. I keep one in my purse and have given 8 as little gifts.
I love my workhorse bags. I have two right now that I always keep in my purse. Having them there is helping me develop the habit to use less plastic at ALL the stores I go to, not just the grocery store. The habit developed slowly at first, but having them with me all the time meant that whenever I did think of it I was prepared. And now I use them almost every time. They're strong and well made, they hold a lot, they fit perfectly in my purse.
My bags are more than a year old now. They continue to be in great shape, strong, compact, and wonderful. They made for fun and useful stocking stuffers last year.
I carry this in my purse at all times. I often forget to bring in my larger totes when I'm just running in for a few items, or they're in the other car. Sometimes I just buy more than can fit in my larger grocery totes. I've always got this with me. It stuffs back into its little sack in a jiffy - don't try to fold it neatly; just stuff it like a sleeping bag. It gets all wrinkled but smooths out as soon as you put anything in it. It's very strong too.
We often hear friends complain how difficult it is to remember to bring the reusable bags to the supermarket. We started handing these out as gifts and we see them years later remembering these cuties - easy to store, easy to remember, highly durable.
My wife loves the ACME Bags Workhorse! She carries three in her purse always! They are small enough to carry around and when she is in the checkout line, she doesn't have to worry about forgetting the bags in the car. Because they are so small, she just whips them out of her purse! The hold a lot and they are extremely sturdy! We love that the pouch that holds the bag is all attached, so no worries about losing the pouch that goes with the bag! We ordered many for Christmas gifts and also ordered more for us.
I got these bags so I can use them to wrap my children's presents (great tutorial, by the way), but I got a couple of extras for myself, to try them out too. They are great! Now I always have a bag with me, so when they ask, "Paper or plastic?" I don't have to say, "Rats, my bags are in the car, so use the wasteful, disposable version." I always have them on hand in my purse, so I can just whip them out and let them use these! Great! Thanks!
Great bag!! Compact size makes it easy to slip into a small purse. Can hold large amounts of groceries. Very happy with this purchase
Great bag!!I love how the bag is very compact but strong enough to hold lots of groceries! Great purchase.
the bags are light weight but stronge and mimic the plastic sacks in stores. This means the cashier does not have to struggle with strange bags and can place them in the same way as the plastic bags for loading.
I purchased this bag for an extra to go with my set of four silicone lined ACME bags. This bag is nice but doesn't feel as strong as the silicone lined bags. I still love it for everyday uses like an extra book bag for work or carry a lunch in it just fine. I have even used it as an extra clothes bag at my son's preschool and at the gym. It is soft and shiney. I have people asking me about them where ever I go. Nice product for the price. I also have bought the set of 4 for Christmas gifts for my entire family. Saving the world one bag at a time.
Great bag. Very durable.
I LOVE THESE BAGS. My favorite
Great bag, perfect size! I love that I can easily keep these in my purse, that way I always have one or two handy. Have gotten compliments from friends on how great of a product these bags are, highly recommend them!
Wonderful bags! I keep one in each car, one in my purse, and two in my Reisenthal market basket. These deceptively small bags sure do hold plenty. Perfectly priced too, especially if you buy a few. Cool stocking stuffer idea!
This is my second order of this product. I really like reuseable shopping bags. I have some that are MANY years old. The problem is remembering to carry them to the store. These, I use, then refold and put in my briefcase. They are always handy.
This is a great little bag. I use reusable bags all the time (reisenthel) and love them but wanted to get something smaller and in black for my husband to use. He is much more likely to grab the Acme since it's so small. A great gift, too.
This is a great product. It is extremely compact! Women esp love it as it fits so easily in their purse even if they carry a small purse. I am giving this to several people.
I've used these bags for groceries for several years and love them. They're simple, light, good-looking, and just the right size (sometimes huge bags get too heavy, or groceries at the bottom get crushed). I specifically want to put in a good word for the handles. Grocery trips for my family frequently fill 5 bags, and I find the shorter, integrated handles very convenient, making the full bags easy to manage and carry by hand. While shoulder bags are great for other purposes, I think they would make these difficult to control when full of heavy groceries.
Your Skoy cleaning cloths are absolutely revolutionary! I have been cleaning my home for 58 years, and this cloth is the best thing I have found. I keep 2 at my kitchen sink, a white one for dishes and counter tops, and a colored one for floor spills and the like. I wash them either in the wash machine, or the dishwasher. Thank you for a great product!
I love the workhorse bag. I keep one or two in my purse all the time for those shopping emergencies! I have give them as gifts and they are being used..one less bit of plastic. Thank you for a terific product.
Awesome, perfect, wonderful! Terrific to keep in my purse, to take anywhere. I use this all the time. Folds up into it's own pouch, and it's takes up no space at all.
Sturdy for heavy loads. I love the two different handle lenghts!
One of the greatest features of the Workhorse Bag is the self-attached storage pocket sewn right into the lining. I've even had Walmart checkers comment on the utility of this model shopping bag.
I love the bags. I have a couple of other types and they have long handles. They are too long for a short person. I like the length of the ones gotten from you.
I am extremely impressed with these bags. At first, I had trouble figuring out how to fold them up, but your video and the assistance of an engineer-neighbor showed me how to do it easily and neatly. They are convenient beyond belief. The only problem is that I sometimes forget to carry one with me when I am buying something that I had not expected to get.
These are my favorite reusable bags. They are sturdy, lightweight and comfortable to carry. They are shaped like a plastic grocery bag so they fit right on the metal stand at the food stores and are easy for the clerks to use. These fold so tiny and are so weightless you can always add one to your purse or pocket. Like Mary Poppins says, "Practically perfect in every way!"
I love the Acme Bag Workhorse! Easy to fill and easy to carry. I use it whenever I need a bag, library, beach, groceries, etc.
I would give this six stars if I had the option--I LOVE THESE BAGS. They are a great value, sturdy and durable and yet they fold in seconds into their own attached pouch. For me, this means that a couple can live in my purse and I never have to remember to bring them anywhere, and since getting these bags I find myself pulling them out in drugstores, clothing stores, anywhere I might be handed yet another useless plastic bag...I'll probably be buying one in every color. I've tried several different reusable bags, and these would be my favorites even if they weren't also among the most affordable.
Love the bags, small enuf to always carry one or two in my purse ready to use at any store. They come with their own pocket attached and easy to put back in the pocket. They carry more than you suspect. Love them and have given some for gifts and will buy more.
I like the bags very much and recently ordered more. Folks at grocery stores are finally getting used to having me remind them that I have my own bags. They even make positive comments about them.
Love it. Portable and very strong.
Love these bags! I keep 2-4 of them folded up in my purse so impromptu stops at the store don't result in having more plastic bags. They are strong and hold a lot but take up little room in my purse. I keep buying them "as gifts" but end up keeping and using them. You've turned me into a bag lady and I love it.
They take alot of weight (bottled juices, soda, etc) with no problem. Great colors, quality product, great price. I highly recommend this product to everyone.
I bought several workhorse bags for both my vehicles. Red for our red truck & orange for my blue minivan(we are an Illini family). We were recently on vacation and many people commented on how small they packed yet carried a lot of groceries well. I gave them the web site. Hope you have more customers.
The ACME Workhorse Original bag is my absolute favorite! It holds up against major wear & tear and is less expensive than most similar style (but less sturdy) bags. I purchase these for myself, give them along with thank you cards, and for gifts. My entire family uses them & won't even think of using a plastic bag any more. :)
Great bag! Holds a ton of stuff and fits in my purse. I love it!
i LOVE these bags. i hate having to carry around big gigantic bags, so these were great because i could just throw them into my purse. or keep them in my glove compartment. i wish i had bought more of them the first time around!
Love the bag. Very small and convienent to carry around in my small fanny pack/purse. I will buy some as gifts for family and friends.
I live in Hawaii. During a trip to visit my daughter in California, she purchased the ACME nylon fold-up bags as a Mothers Day gift for me and I love them. I carry one in my purse all the time, "just in case." It has come in handy so often and holds so much. The store clerks are always impressed. It's a durable, good-looking bag and I like the choice of colors. I recently purchased six more as gifts for my friends and I tell everyone who's interested in saving the planet about this wonderful product.
I love the workhorse bag. It is so easy to just leave in my purse and bring it out for any purchases. It is very easy to fold it up and fit it in it's self containing bag, and the best part is the little bag is attached, so you can't lose it. I received this product as a free bonus, but I would definately purchase this product.
I think your bags are great! I like it that they just fold into a little pouch that is easy to put in your pocket and take anywhere. The fact that they are reusable is even better. I bought a few for me and few for family members, and they like them, too. Thanks so much!
These clever and convenient bags work great! They are very small (about 2 1/2 x 2 1/2") when folded into themselves. They open up to a big bag (the size of those plastic ones that every store has) and actually sit on the bag holder for ease in loading!! They are terrific and I would highly recommend them. I tried other types of bags these are by far the best!! You should know that they easily fold into themselves and then into the little built in pouch. Buy them!!
I just received my Acme Workhorse bag in the mail last week, and I have already had the chance to use it multiple times. I like that it is small enough that I can keep it in my purse and always have it with me. The bag has been sturdy enough to carry heavy loads so far, and I like the cranberry color- which is really more of a dark pink.
I love this bag; it is very well-built, portable, and comfortable to use. I've had several comments from grocery workers and shoppers alike. Will definitely get more!
These bags are amazing! They are strong, holding about 4x the amount of food that an ordinary plastic bag would hold. They also take up little space, so they're easy to keep in the car, in a purse or pocket, etc. I've had mine for years and they're still in great shape!
These are some of the best bags out there! Very comfortable to carry, hold a ton, fold up super small and look great! Just about every time I use my Acme workhorse bags I get a comment from the cashier or bagger. And this one was even better because I got it free with my last order!!! These are great for guys, too. My husband doesn't mind carrying the black one at all.
This bag is great! It's very compact when folded and not hard to fold (which can be a problem with this type of bag) but when open, it's large and roomy and feels very strong. I never worry about loading up this bag.
I love these bags I carried mine all over Europe. Fits right in your purse:)
I have had my bags for at least two year's now and they are still going strong. I love them.I bought 4 and keep them in my purse. I am forever stoping at the store after the gym and usually come home with more then what I was going for. They are very strong and have never let me down. I would highly recommed these to anyone.
These bags hold a ton of food and are very durable. Compact and versatile. Highly recommended!
These bags are priceless. Every Mom should carry 1 or 2 of these in the diaper bag at all times. My husband even keeps one in his car now. You will never need a plastic bag for a quick trip to the store again. Fantastic gift idea too!!
Great product! So easy to carry around...i keep half a dozen of these guys on a carabiner in my car--always ready for a big grocery shop. And they "fold" back up into their pouch so quickly and easily--if they didnt, i'd have stopped using them long ago. I have even started taking one on business trips, for when the mood to shop a bit strikes.
Have used these for a while as they are handy to carry every day in a purse because they do not take up much room. We have had all black ones and I was pleased to see the other colors so I ordered some blue and some red. Easy to store in the drawer at work and I have given these as gifts in the past. Sturdy and a great value. Great reviews all around!
I love these bags...I've purchased six so far, and they are really handy for running in to a store to buy just a couple of items, or for purchasing a bag full of items. They are very sturdy yet super light-weight, so I can carry one in my purse and leave a few in the car. I've had other reusable bags, but I often forget them in the car because they are too big to carry in my purse. With the "Workhorse", on the other hand, I don't have to remember it because it's already in my purse. I am highly satisfied!
I just got 4 Acme Workhorse bags. Because I can put them in my pocket I use them more. They also have very comfortable handles.
Practical and durable bag. It tucks away in its own pocket making it easy to store in my car or scooter. I was amazed at how much it holds! and how sturdy it is. Like it so much I bought more for me and my sisters and mom.
The perfect bag. I keep several in my purse, and find I use them constantly...for groceries, the stop at the bagel store, carrying lunch....when I'm done, fold them right back up and into the purse. When folded, they're the size of a deck of cards, when open, they are the size of the [awful] plastic bags from a supermarket (and way stronger!). Now, when someone sees me take out my stuff from my reusable bag, and fold it back up into the little tiny self pouch, and exclaim "What a great bag!"...I give it to them....with the promise they will use it and pass on the word. I only have one problem...it seems grocery store cashiers see you have your own bag, then feel they don't have to pack up your groceries. I had one cashier tell me, "I don't touch other peoples bags." On the other hand, I've been given free produce at our local farmers market, because I carry my own bags...
4 ACME bags were purchased for a wedding shower. The bride to be LOVES them. She reports that the small size allows her to slip them in her purse. She always has them with her, unlike the usual reusable bag that is forgotten in the trunk of her car.
I love my bags. I was given two by a co-worker for Christmas. I just bought some more to give to my family for gifts this year.
This is my favorite reusable bag. It folds up neatly and quite small, and it is lightweight. I keep one in my wallet, a few in my purse for everyday and a handful in a lightweight backpack for grocery shopping. It washes and dries well. The inside tear-out tag has come in handy: when someone admires the bag, I offer to simply tear off a tag and hand it to them!
As good as it gets. I have owned my original 4 Acme bags for 4 yrs now, and I use them for everything: groceries, shopping trips, picnics, beach bag, library, extra bag on vacation, extra clothes/socks for kids, sling it on a stroller full of snacks. I have gifted them to everybody. The feedback is the same. "Where did you get those bags? I want to buy more." Easy to wash, fits compactly in my purse, and my husband carries it his jacket pocket when he goes shopping. Makes using reuasable bags easy and enjoyable.
I love the convenience of the bags and so do my baggers where I shop. Since I do not carry a purse the compactness of them is important. Additionally, they are strong enough to carry any of my purchases.
Exactly what I wanted. Received it quickly.
I love these bags. Now I can never forget to bring a bag into the supermarket. Just one comment. I cycle regularly and love to stop at farmers markets on the way home. It would be wonderful if you could make the bags with long straps to convert it so I can carry it on my bag or on the shoulder.
I ordered your AMCE bags for myself and my daughters. We all love how compact and light they are. I keep the pouch in my car, take the four pack in the store, and use the ones I need. Talk about convenient!!! I've also gotten several compliments.
I have 4 reusable bags for groceries and I love them, They are perfect for bagging all my groceries and sturdy and I love the way they fold up!! I love the large amount of space they give to store all my groceries!
I received one of these free with my order and absolutely love it. I tend to forget my bags in the car and this one is kept in my purse. I use it all the time and LOVE IT!!! It's the best thing yet, becuase it folds up into itself and you can store it anywhere. I need more of these. They would also make some great gifts.
These bags live up to their workhorse name. They are incredibley strong and easy to carry. I am amazed at how much they hold as well. Where I once would bring home 20 plastic bags of groceries, I now just have my ten workhorse bags. An awesome product that I'll continue to use. I also have one of the black mesh workhorse bags in addition to these ten and it, too, is a terrific product.
THESE ARE AWESOME!!! When I used them at a major retailer, the clerk asked me where I could get them so he could order some! These are the perfect size and we don't leave home without them. Great way to do our part to not contribute to landfills!
These bags are so awesome! I originally purchased the envirosax (which are great, don't get me wrong) and I received a free Acme bag with my purchase. I loved the convenience of tucking it in a pocket of my purse and knowing it was always there. I used it alot but felt compelled one day to share with a friend and gave it away. I can't believe how much I miss it, so now I'm buying some today. I use my 5 pack of bags for big shopping days but don't carry them with me as they take up alot of space. The Acme bag is perfect to keep with you always and so easy to fold up, no wonder I had to share, this time I will buy enough to share AND keep some for myself!
What a great product. They store in their own pouch and they can handle a ton of weight with no tearing. Goodbye plastic bags!
The bags are perfect for me. I can keep three of them in my purse and never have to worry about forgetting them when I go to the store. They are about the size of a plastic grocery bag so they aren't too heavy to carry.
A nylon version of the standard-sized plastic bag. It folds down into its own pouch to fit neatly in a pocket or purse. Every time I've pulled it out at a store, people are interested in it. Seems well-made, the heaviest load I've carried so far is about 10 pounds. Overall, I'm very pleased with them (I bought 4, 2 each for myself and the wife). I wish they also made a slightly larger bag with longer handles that could be carried over the shoulder for longer hauls/heavier loads.
Workhorse? Another awesome product...they fold up to be super small, have 1 in my briefcase, a couple in the car, a couple at home...you never know when you'd need a bag like this and boy does it come in handy...watch the video..impressive and reliable...washable...just plain great!
I adore the Workhorse Style 1500 bags by Acme. I always-always-forgot my bags when going to the grocery. As a result, I'd either halt the whole checkout process so I could fetch them from the car (very embarrassing) or I'd use the blasted plastic or paper bags and rail at myself the entire way home. Now, I simply store the workhorse bags in my large handbag so they are always with me. Voila! Problem solved. I own six and plan to buy more. I have several trips coming up and know they will be invaluable while on the road. Thanks for finding this great design.
I have two of these strong, easy-to-carry/store bags. When you hear WORKHORSE STYLE, you wonder what it's all about. When, I was asked to review it, I had to look up the item since I really didn't know the name of it. I have carried a bagful of cans (darned clerk) in this bag and only suffered a sore arm, not a ripped bag. WORKHORSE is a FINE name for a strong, sturdy product.
These bags are great! Not only do they work well, but they make you feel good about yourself every time you use them.
I really like these bags. I can keep a bunch of them in my car and stick them in my pockets when I go to a store. It's light, strong, and comfortable. It's much easier to carry stuff in these bags than to use plastic grocery bags or the plastic hand baskets, which lean over and bang into your legs and other objects. It makes shopping quicker and easier and allows fewer trips from my car to my apartment. They are also much more appealing than the Whole Foods and Trader Joe's bags, which look like women's tote bags. The design and the lack of a big logo on it lowers the barrier for people (at least me) to use reusable bags.
I love these bags because they score on form and function -- they're beautiful, capacious, and strong. That Moroccan blue is gorgeous and silky: processing groceries now has an element of aesthetic pleasure. Longer handles might be better if you want them for other purposes too -- these aren't shoulder bags.
By far the BEST bag around! Lightweight and compact yet fits a LOT! I keep these in my purse always!
These bags were perfect and they really were great quality for the price. They fit for those quick trips to the grocery store.
I love these bags! They are very easy to use since I can carry a few in my purse with me all the time. At first I was skeptical about getting them back into their original easy to carry tiny shape but that turned out to be easy! I would highly recommend these to anyone interested in reusable bags.
Love this product. Keep at least three in my purse at all times!
I love my Acme bags. I keep 4 of them in my purse and no one knows they're there. They're strong and convenient. I don't have to worry about forgetting to put my bags in the car anymore.
Love these bags!!! Small enough when closed to fit in my purse, so I am never without a bag when needed. I put 6 in the trunk of my car, so I always have them for big shopping trips. My husband put one in his truck so he always has one. They fit much more than I expected, about 2 or 3 times more than the plastic grocery store bags! They are strong and easy to clean. I wash them in the washer and hang dry them. Now that I am in the habit of using them it is no big deal to hand them to the person bagging at the store or fill them myself. I feel sooo satisfied each time I do not take those plactic bags!!! I would like to see more cheery colors available. The color choices remind me of my camping equipment from the 1970s, I know it's not all about fashion, but I do like pretty colors.
I cannot say anything but great things about the workhorse bags I purchased. They are so easy to use. They fit easily on the rack that grocers use to load groceries. Wish everyone would bring their own bags, and these are a great purchase!
The workhorse bags are great! I wanted to stop using the plastic bags at the grocery store and ordered 4 of the workhorse bages to give them a try. When I saw them, I thought they would be too small, but they are similar in size to a plastic bag, and the size is good. The only problem is that my kids have started using them to carry extra things to school the won't fit in their backpacks....boots, etc. Another one has become a knitting bag. Needless to say, I need to order more bags for me. I want to keep some in the car so I have them for shopping trips.
I love these bags! They are incredibly strong...I can load them up with all my groceries at the store. They are very light themselves and fold up nicely into small size, pouch included. The handles are made of the same strong material and they are very comfortable to carry when loaded down. And, they come in cool colors...what's not to love!! I even get compliments on them from the baggers at my local grocery store.
I've ordered over 20 of the Workhorse bags. They're great. I gave many to friends and relatives as gifts at Christmas. My daughter and I gave a 'living green' presentation and showed our favorite products, including the purse bags (Workhorse). Twelve partipants ordered bags and I've heard from many that they love them! They are a great value. I always have one in my purse.
Very impressive design. Works great! Easy to use. Reasonable price.
I bought this so I would always have my own bag in my jacket pocket. It's helped me to bring my own bag much more often. The attached stuff sack makes it easy to roll it up and I don't worry about loosing the case for the bag. The material seems very durable and I am very pleased overall. In general I go to the grocery store to pick up a few items with this bag. It works well for that. It is the size of a standard grocery store or drug store plastic bag. As long as you load it only as heavy as you can carry with one hand it's a great bag. There is not space for two hands in the handles and the material is soft and floppy so you can't fill it full and wrap your arms under it or around it to carry it. You have to use the handles. For this niche it works great.
The grocery cashiers always comment on how they like these bags because they fit the bag stands. I like them because they are strong and the most compact of compact bags.
This is a great bag. It handles bulky/heavy objects and folds up nicely to fit in your pocket. Great for trips to the hardware store or anywhere else.
Ingenious! I first discovered this great bag one day when I went to my wellness clinic to pick up a parcel that had been delivered. The package turned out to be heavier and bulkier than I had expected and was wondering out loud how I would manage to carry it home. One of my fellow practitioners offered to lend me her ACME bag. I was amazed at it's size, and how easily it managed the weight of my parcel. The wide built-in handles make carrying heavy bundles a breeze. When not in use, this bag stores in it's own little pouch that you can toss into your handbag or backpack. My husband surprised me with my own bag and now I'm placing an order for 10 more to give as gifts. It's another one of those great things I wish "I" had invented.
I just received my order! I was a little skeptical as to the quality and visual appeal of the "Workhorse 1500" so I only purchased one. Wow! I love it! The bag itself is not only attractive and folds up into the cutest little pouch, but the construction is also immaculate and the rip stop nylon appears to be almost indestructible. I'm back for more!
This bag is great and really lives up to its name. I keep one in my purse at all times, and it feels great to say no to "paper OR plastic"!
The absolute BEST! These are compact and washable. They dry quickly when they get wet (from rain or frozen foods). They hold more than twice as much as plastic bags so 5 is usually more than enough for a big shopping trip. Cashiers think they are really cool & ask "Where do you get these?" I bought 5 the first time and am back to order 4 more because my kids usually have several still filled from sleepovers, campouts, etc.
This is my second set of workhorse bags! I just returned from a two weeks stay in Tanzania, where my black ACME workhorse bag became my day pack--and a 'carry-on' bag when I returned home to the US. These bags really can stand up to rough treatment, carry many times their weight in daily necessities, and hold their own against much heavier backpack material. Thanks for such an environmentally friendly bag!
These bags are great! However, the video display is misleading. The thing I love about the attached baggy is that it's like a stuff sleeping bag. You can't imagine it will all fit in the bag, but after just a few seconds of stuffing, the larger bag is all in the little bag and back in my purse. Excellent!
This bag really is as good as it sounds. I bring one along almost everywhere I go, tucked into either my purse or my backpack. They've come in handy so many times, and they fold up into a very small pouch. At first I thought it would be hard to get the bag into the pouch (like trying to fit a sleeping bag into a carrying bag!) but actually it couldn't be easier, since the pouch is attached to the bag itself. This bag is incredibly useful and very portable. I highly recommend it!
Love, love, love these bags! I currently own six and use them all the time. I get 5 cents back for every bag I use at my grocery store. I save 25 cents or more every trip I make.
I am never without a bag with these in my purse. Every time I take this bag out at the grocery store, someone asks where to get them. I wish I could hand them out to everyone! From now on they will be my stocking stuffers to all my friends!
These bags are a beautiful color, light as a feather and capable of holding a LOT of stuff. I can fit what used to be in 8-10 plastic bags into just 4-5 of these, and still carry them. The only downside is that they don't have very wide holes in the handles and I am used to putting bags over my forearm - this won't work now, with winter clothes on. But the handles are wide and comfortable so I just am relearning how to carry bags! I plan to give these as gifts in 2007 - they're awesome products.
OMG I dont know how I shopped before without these bags. I ordered 4 in the red colour and they were so cute in the little attatched bags. I threw them all in my backpack and headed to the grocery store. I ended up only needing to use one bag and boy did it hold ALOT of stuff. I'm so happy that I'm going to order more in the next month for myself and as a Solstice gift for my Neighbors:)
These are fantastic bags! Hold up to 2 grocery bags worth of goods & is easy for me to carry. The straps are short, which is good for me b/c i don't want thin shoulder-straps digging into my hands or shoulders. The Moroccan blue is gorgeous and the Burnt orange is lovely as well. i've given lots of these away b/c so many people love it. Helps you realize how many plastic bags you end up using every day. Great to keep one in your purse, one at home & one at the office.
I gave everyone in my family one of these bags for Christmas and they were all so impressed! My sister put a load of her presents in the bag and it really did hold a phenomenal amount! They pack down so small as well, they're just great. Very easy to use, very easy to store and excellent value for money!
These bags are WONDERFUL!! I carry two in my purse at all times. They are great conversation starters, too, and educating the public is half the battle as we all know. They make great gifts and are worth more than their tiny weight in gold. Buy several today!
I purchased these bags in red, orange and blue. The colors are beautiful, so you can't go wrong there. Even better is that these are extremely durable bags. I can honestly see them lasting for years with weekly use. They are shaped and sized exactly like the plastic bags that grocery stores use, but you can hold even more in one of these than the plastic bags. Normally, I would end up coming home from the grocery with 10-20 bags! It feels so great to come home and not have to stuff away that many plastic bags until I find a use for them. I am considering purchasing a few more to keep in each vehicle and for around the house use. These will be great for when we travel to hold toys, snacks, whatever we can come up with. There are so many ways that you can use these bags.
What a convenient bag! I bought one for me and one for my boyfriend to keep on hand for unplanned shopping trips. It's so tiny I could easily carry three or four in my laptop bag. When unfolded it is durable and large enough to carry about two plastic bags' worth of groceries. The thick handles are easier on the fingers, no more pinching off blood flow and numb finger tips.
These bags are great! I was pleasantly surprised at how strong they are and how much they hold. The fold away design is great because they fit nicely in my purse.
I love my bags. I keep one in my purse and one in my work bag. Since they're so sturdy, they hold a lot more than plastic bags. Thanks so much!
i love these bags! i got two for myself and my husband to use... i always keep one with me as i often stop at the market when i walk home from work. they hold a lot more than i would have expected and the checkout people are always impressed with the capacity and strength. my husband feels very accomplished when we use them, like we're actually doing something to help make a difference.
These bags are basically the same as the envirosax bags except they don't have the hassle of properly folding and rolling and snapping them for storage after each use.
I bought 4 so that I could do some big shopping trips, but so far I've fit everything in 2 or 3. They work beautifully, as advertised. Every time I pull them out either the bagger thanks me for saving the planet or the lady behind me says, "Where'd you get those bags?!!"
Oh, one more thing: I was at a Ditty Bops concert recently and they had made clothing out of white plastic grocery bags. They found ways throughout the show to point out the reasons to tote reusuable bags. They were sweating in all that plastic!
I love my bag. I do wish the handles were a little longer but there might be one like that. I will definitely buy another one.
These ACME Bags are amazing. They come so small that I keep two in my purse at all times. Not only are they small, but they are so strong. I am able to load tons of stuff into them. This is such a easy way to live more green!
I bought four of these bags and LOVE them! I can buy my family's groceries for the week and the only thing not in the bags is a gallon of milk and a 12-pack of soda! We used to bring home about 12 plastic bags (sometimes doubled; so 24 bags) a week. I feel so good knowing that I'm not adding to the "plastic bag attack on our planet" anymore! They are super strong, easy to carry and fold up so easily into the small carrying pouch! I'll be buying these as gifts for everyone on my shopping list this year!
Great! I love the red color of my bag. It's durable and hefty.
I do enjoy these bags. However if I had to choose again I would definately choose a bag that is larger as the bags do not accomodate as much as I would like. The fact that each bag folds back into its own pouch (atttached) is very clever.
Very clever little bags. I mostly keep these in my diaper bag in case I am running in somewhere quick for a couple items. I use my string bags for the big shopping trips. But these are just too cool, easily folding up into their little pouch. I'll be purchasing some as stocking stuffers this year for my family.
These bags are great! They fit so many things in them and yet they fold up into a little tiny packet. My sister in law bought these also after I told her about mine. I like saving plastic and not having millions of plastic bags around my house for the dogs to chew on! Hopefully more people will see mine and be inspired to buy some of their own!
I thought using these bags would be a pain but they've worked out well. They're a great size. They work fine in the auto-checkout lanes and they're easy to maintain and keep track of. I would buy again.
I purchased one in red to try it out, and was amazed at how small it was when folded into its pouch! I tuck it in my diaper bag or coat pocket and have used it not only for the quick grocery store trip, but also for hauling knitting supplies, baby gear, books to the library, mail from the post office... I love the bag's strength, and look forward to adding more colors to my stash.
I love these bags - they are so handy and sturdy. I also really appreciate that they are washable so I don't have to worry about what is packed in them. I ordered a shopping set for my sister for her birthday and she loves them as well.
The ACME bags are amazing! I originally ordered 4 and then added 4 more. They are so big that 8 are more than enough for my big shops for my 3 kids. All the baggers at the market comment on how durable and wonderful they are. I am convincing folks at each shop to convert to them! I think it's just a matter of getting the word out. Folks just don't know how easy reusable bags are. I am planning on giving them for mother's day gifts this year!
These bags are wonderful.They are strong and what I love most about these bags are that they are so compact,they stay in my purse so when I go mall shopping I always have a bag with me.
Fantasitc! Due to how small they are when stored, I can keep several in my handbag. I love spreading the word about how many ways one can use them. People are really interested.
Took them to the market and realized I need a few more. The grocery clerk thanked me for providing my own bags. Very durable and hold a lot. Would consider giving to my friends as a gift.
I love these bags! I've given them to my friends and purchased quite a few for myself. I always keep one in my car or purse. They are really quite roomy and durable, I've been surprised at how sturdy they are. My goal this year has been to not use any plastic bags and the Workhouse has been my assistant. I have been surprised at how many sales clerks and people in checkout lines have commented and said that they should do the same--hopefully I can be a stone that causes some ripples....
These are the PERFECT shopping bag! I picked up 4 and keep one in my purse (yes, my purse - and no, it isn't a tank), one in my car, one in my school bag and one at home so I NEVER need to take a plastic bag any more! They are unbelievably sturdy and light.
The bags are really great. I hook them to my things so that I always have them when I need them. The colors are wonderful too.
I have a small son and there always seems to be extra stuff to pick up and carry around. I keep one in his bag and one in the car to collect all that extra stuff you never have an enough hands to carry in.
These bags are super! Their compact size makes them easy to keep in the car or even on a keychain. The bags wash well, also. They are very durable and as strong as advertized. The bagger at our local grocery store was a little skeptical about how much weight the bags could take. He was very surprised to see how many groceries the bags can hold. Great product!
This bag is great. I can't believe how small it can get, so it's easy to carry several just in case. This is especially handy when you end up needing more bags than you brought into the store with you. Nice colors. It is about the same size as those plastic grocery bags, but much stronger, so you can pack it fuller. You can't go wrong with a few (or many) of these.
The bags work great. They hold a lot more than the silly store bags, they are easaier to carry and I do not have to worry about them breaking and spilling my groceries across the parking lot.
Terrific--fits in my purse and comes in handy when I forget to take my canvas bag into a store. Even the cashiers are positive and say more people should use them! Great product, and I am giving some as gifts as well.
Incredible bags. I was very surprised when I got them to see how small they were - I can carry them around with my in my purse and they are light and take up almost no space! They are great for shopping - they hold a lot and are very convienent. I usually walk to the grocery store and I can carry them back home full of food and the bag doesn't cut into your hand. I LOVE them!
Loved the bags--shared with my adult daughters. Now we never have to get a plastic bag when we stop into a store for a few items. We each keep a bag in our purse or glovebox and have already used them many times. I think I'll be ordering quite a few to give as Christmas gifts this year. Every little bit helps!
I love these bags! I can fit several in my purse, which is so convenient. I always have my purse, so I always have my resuable bags. They're also very comfortable to carry when they're full. Worth every penny!
These things are ingenius. I bought two - one for me and my husband. Easy to fold, easy to unfold. Takes up little space in my purse. And they're so sturdy!
Great product, and can hold a lot of stuff. I was able to fit my items puls two of my friend's items in the bag as well. I will be purchasing more of these soon.
I bought three of these bags and I love them. I can use them easily at the grocery store and other places and even full they aren't too heavy to carry.
What a great idea, a reusable shopping bag that folds up to fit right in your pocketbook. Go shopping, take your bag out of your pocketbook and save the planet from those plastic bags. Use it each time you shop or for a multitude of things, you will always have a bag handy. It is sturdy so it will hold more items than the plastic bags and they are easy to clean. I plan on purchasing more to stash in my car, stroller, family bag, Oh! the possibilities.
Wow I love these bags!! I bring them to every store I go to, and after an initial shyness saying that "I brought my own bags" I never want to use anything else. Baggers have been really great about packing these bags, and I ALWAYS get compliments on how clever and handy they are. I keep a few in my purse, one in my car, one in a cabinet at home. We are moving to Europe soon, and I am so happy I'll have these bags to do my shopping there. I'm ordering more today.
These bags are fantastic! I'm getting ready to order 4 more so we have enough for weekly trips to the grocery store and to have one in each vehicle!
I use this like the dual handled hemp tote bag but I prefer the latter because it's not synthetic. Otherwise, this workhhorse style has good volume, seems very strong, fairly cheap, and easy to stash folded up under my arm in case I need it. I don't care for the color (orange; can't remember why I picked it) but that's a minor distraction.
I bought 4 of the Acme Workhorse reusable grocery bags & love them. They hold a ton, are much easier to carry when full than plastic bags & are small enough when folded up to store anywhere. I've always made sure to recycle plastic grocery bags anyway, but it's sure nice to have less of them to deal with and I've used the workhorse bags for more than just trips to the store. They're great for travel & I've grabbed one from the car to use as a purse when I've ended up with too much to carry in my pockets. I also can't belief how fast my order came, fantastic product & fantastic service!
I ordered six bags and received them very quickly. We are very pleased with them. They are very strong - just as described. I shop for a family of five, and can get my weekly shopping into the six bags (keeping the milk loose) with no problem. I haven't washed them yet, but am confident they will wash up nicely. I highly recommend these bags. I feel good having made the decision to use them, and get the chance to talk about my choice everytime I use them because people have been curious.
I placed my order for 5 Workhorse bags and they shipped 2 hours later! I was pleasantly surprise at how quickly they arrived at my house, too. I keep 2 in my purse, 2 in my husband's car & 1 in the diaper bag. We are constantly making unplanned stops at the grocery & drug store, and these have come in very handy. I am buying more for Mothers Day gifts.
I love these bags! The red is a great color, they hold a lot of groceries and they are super comfortable to carry! Much more comfortable than the plastic ones at the grocery store! And they fold back into their pouch really easily so they are a breeze to store. I highly recommend them!
These are great little bags! They hold a lot, and fold so nicely that it's really easy to keep one in my pocket whenever I'm out for a walk. I also have a set of eight which stays in the car for my weekly trip to the grocery store. It's been very nice NOT to have plastic grocery bags breeding in the recycle bin!
A great way to not use an extra bag. Love that you can toss it in your little bag and go!
This bag is great. Not only environmentally better than plastic, also way more comfortable to hold. I live along walk from my supermarket and don't have a car, so this thing is ideal. The fact that it's so small when folded up means I can keep it in my pocket and use it all the time. My only complaint is that I wish I bought two.
I just got to use my bags for the first time this weekend. I LOVE THEM! I have no extra bags now laying around the house, they held a good amount of weight with no trouble. No bags digging into my hands as I carried them, and they fit PERFECTLY in my bag. I had all four of them in my purse and i couldn't tell the difference than when they weren't in there. They take up very little room. Give me more and brighter colors and I don't know what I would do with myself...Thank you!
I love these little bags! I keep one in my purse so that I always have an alternative to getting a plastic bag!
I bought 4 of these bags as an Earth Day gift to myself. They are light, easy to carry in my handbag and hold a lot of groceries. Many people in the grocery store think the bags are a great idea.
These bags are FANTASTIC. I use them almost every day; they're ultra-light and small, strong and capacious, and I get compliments on their pretty blue color. I think everyone should grab a pair of these!
The bags are fabulous! Several of my friends & I ordered and everyone is pleased. In fact, they all plan on getting more. The quality is great. You can really carry a lot in those little bags. I would highly recommend these bags!
These are great. They hold more and are stronger than any supermarket plastic bag. It's a nice change to come home from shopping, empty your bags, and fold them up to use for next time instead of finding a place to store them or throw them away. Great idea.
GREAT bag. It folds up nice and small, so I can keep 2 in my purse for stops at the grocery store on the way home. And they're super strong, and still comfortable to hold even when carrying heavy things.
I love this bag! Stylish, easy to use, and it fits into your purse. I keep at least one with me at all times. My old shopping trips to the grocery store would leave me with ten plastic bags per trip. Now I only use two! You can carry a lot of weight without pinching your fingers. People take notice of these bags. Make a statement. Once you go reusable you won't go back to plastic. Awesome product!
Hopefully the masses will join the program of eliminating plastic or paper bag use.
These are fabulous! I've spent the past 15yrs apologizing to the grocery checker as they grumble when I hand them my floppy canvas bags. These really do fit over the bag rack and I've even had several checkers comment on how great these bags are - and I've only had them a few weeks now! When folded up, they're ultra-compact. I keep a set strung onto a carabineer and then clip them to the cart or my belt loop.
I love these bags! I purchased 4 a few weeks ago and didn't realize how much I could fit into them. They are strong, durable and easy to pack up. I keep them with me all the time! These bags are a great transition away from plastic bags plus they hold so much more!
Wonderful little bag that holds so much! My favorite thing to have tucked away in my purse for when situations arise and you need a bag- bam-there it is!
I **love** this bag. I bought it for a friend as a gift and she loves it, too. It's compact and strong and a perfect size. Get it!
My wife carries one in her purse so it's always at hand. We've already gotten several compliments on it.
ABSOLUTELY love these bags and use them solely for grocery shopping. They fit a large amount of items (I was afraid five wouldn't be enough for my weekly shopping trips). It's easy to quickly unfold the bags while waiting in lines and the baggers seem to have no problem using them.
I LOVE THESE BAGS THEY ARE THE GREATEST, I HAVE A DOZEN OF THEM AND I USE THEM EVERYDAY. I LOVE TO FIND WAYS TO SAVE OUR ENVIRONMENT, AND THESE ACME 1500 ARE THE TICKET TO DO IT.
I love my new bags! They help me keep waste down, and are paying for themselves. My grocer gives 5 cents for each bag saved. :-)
I like these bags because you can stick them in your purse and you will always have a bag handy. Sometimes I go out to shop and don't expect to make a purchase so I don't bring a canvas bag. Then I end up buying something and instead of taking a plastic shopping bag I have my own. These bags fold up small so they don't take up much room but they can be tricky to fold up again. They are quite strong. I plan on buying some for gifts.
I LOVE THESE BAGS! I got my bags this weekend and used them for the first time today on a big shopping trip. They are well made and hold a lot! I only needed 6 bags for all of my groceries, and I am shopping for a family of 4! I used to have 15 or more bags per grocery trip! I did not have them bag my juice and milk, I just keep a empty diaper box in the car to put that stuff in for easy transport into the house. Each bag holds at least twice what a plastic grocery bag holds, but it is easier to carry because of the material. I used to have to make at least 3 trips from the car to the house carrying 5 or more bags each time, today I made 2 trips and everything was in the house! AMAZING. The one suggestion I have is to pull the bags out of their handy storage pouches and have them ready to fill before getting in the grocery line, especially if you are shopping with children. Otherwise the bag loading process can be a bit hectic.
Just wonderful. Small enough to keep on in my purse. One small change I would make is to make the handles a bit longer to go over the shoulder. I brag about them to all my friends and love to show them how they fold up.
Victoria C 05/2007 I DECIDED TO GIVE UP PLASTIC BAGS PERMANENTLY ON MY BIRTHDAY, WHICH HAPPENED TO BE EARTH DAY. I BOUGHT 5 OF THESE THINGS, IN THE DARK RED. I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE THEM!ONE STAYS IN MY GLOVE COMPARTMENT AND THE OTHER TWO ARE ALWAYS IN MY PURSE-- READY FOR USE. THEY ARE VERY EASY TO OPEN UP AND STUFF BACK TOGETHER. I AM STILL GETTING USED TO HANDING THE OPENED BAG TO A CASHIER AND TELLING HER TO USE IT FOR MY FOR MY PURCHASES, BUT GENERALLY I HAVE REMEMBERED MOST OF THE TIME. MY KIDS WERE SCREAMING THE OTHER DAY BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT FIND EVEN ONE PLASTIC BAG IN OUR HOUSE! I LOVED THEM SO MUCH I GAVE AWAY TWO TO FRIENDS. I FEEL LIKE I AM SAVING THE PLANET IN MY OWN SMALL WAY EVERY TIME I USE THEM. EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE OF THESE THINGS TUCKED IN THEIR PURSE AND THEN TRY TO REMEMBER TO USE IT INSTEAD OF A PLASTIC BAG.
Am finding the bag very useful...I usually do general food shopping once a week and then fill in with perishables daily or every other day...That's a lot of plastic bags...much more than I need for garbage. I use the reusable bag for daily shopping & it's the perfect size. It folds up so easily and fits neatly in even the smallest handbag.
I received 2 of these for christmas and now I bought tons to give away - I love them. I would like to see if we can order them with our company logo on them, in bulk. Can you help with that? Please contact me at [email protected] about bulk with logo. Anne
I love these bags and I take them into EVERY store I go to NOT just the grocery store. They make GREAT gifts and can be used for so much more than shopping such as carrying supplies to scrapbooking classes, taking that extra pair of shoes to work, gym clothes, extra beach supplies and even garden produce. YES, I've used mine to tote flowers and garden veggies to a friend's house. Use it for everything with No worries since it's washable. One will NEVER be enough! I have 5 already! L.F.
I LOVE the ACME Bags Workhorse Style 1500. I purchased 4 of these bags and have made use of them each and every time I've gone on my errands. Their use have not been confined to groceries. I also use them to lug my gym clothes around, and carry my children's "stuff". Great buy, altogether!
These bags are excellent and pack down small enough to carry in my purse. I have gotten nothing but positive feedback from the baggers and even other customers. Great bags!
What a great little bag! It's small and light, folds into its own storage pouch, and so small it fits in the palm of your hand. It's a strong, sophisticated version of the plastic grocery bag. Only with this bag, you can load it up without fear of the bottom falling out. It's handy on small shopping trips to have as a bag to hold small items as you shop. I also use them to hold produce I buy, so I eliminate the many plastic produce bags I used. I estimate I've eliminated a dozen plastic bags per shopping trip by using a variety of reusable shopping bags (that's about 625 a year). It saves me storage and garbage disposal, and saves landfill space.
Excellent bags, thank you. I've even learned how to stuff them back in the little bag! I am never without at least one of them in my purse. Love them!
I have used this bag multiple times since receiving it! I have two, but may need to buy more as sometimes when grocery shopping I don't have enough room, but all in all it holds a ton to start - maybe I should just buy less. HA!
These bags are the best! They easily fit in purse or pocket, so I always have at least one with me. They are so strong they can really be filled up, saving more than one plastic bag. And the colors are cool.
I love these bags. They are feather light yet extremely tough. I also love the fact that I can fold it down so small that it fits in my purse. I also like that baggers at the stores can slide the handles over the plastic bag hanger so they can stuff the bags easier.
I've used these bags twice, so far. They unfold and fold up easily. They also fit on the holders in the grocery store making bagging easy. They are easy to carry and similar to the regular plastic bags you get in the grocery store.
I love my bags they hold a lot, and easy to carry!
These bags are great. They fit just as much if not more than the plastic bags from the grocery store. They fold up easily. I keep mine in my purse and use them everywhere. These bags are easier on your hands than the plastic ones also, they don't cut into your skin and are easier to carry. Overall an excellent choice.
I love the recycled bags I purchased. They hold twice as much as those plastic blue bags. I also have an online business, Blueberry Hill, and those bags really come in handy. Our grocery store gives you pennies off with each recycled bag used. Thanks again.
I love these bags. Before I had canvas bags in the car and never remembered to take them in the store. Now I carry these in my purse. They are so compact and I love that the cashiers can put them right on their plastic bag holders to fill them. Makes the cashier very accepting of using them. Also have had a few questions from other customers about them. I'm so glad I found this site. Sally from Michigan and Florida
These are amazing! Their size (when folded up)makes them easy to toss in my purse, and they fit right on the bag racks at the grocery store. I love them so much, I've been telling everyone! They fit a lot, are easy to clean, and I feel like they will never tear. I'll certainly be getting some more of these.
The bags have been great. I can fit my weekly groceries for a family of five in about six or seven bags. The baggers at the grocery store also seem to like them.
These bags are great! They are really compact so they're easy to carry around and they are VERY strong. I can load more cans or bottles into a 1500 than into a comparably sized plastic shopping bag so I'm saving more than one plastic for each 1500 use. Also, they wash beautifully. (The milk always leaks!)
I've had this in my purse for about three weeks and you should have seen the jealous stares when I finally whipped it out to bag some purchases a few days ago. Perfect for small unexpected shopping trips. It's also surprisingly easy to fit back into the built-in pouch; I had braced myself for a struggle and was pleasantly surprised.
I LOVE my reusable shopping bags -- in fact, I just ordered 4 more. I find I'm going to have to educate our baggers about using them, though! They didn't quite know what to do with them and ended up putting one item in some of them! Good news is our Kroger gives 5 cents back per bag (but they don't advertise this).
I love the ACME Bags. They are super strong, easy to fold and compact. They fit in my purse easily and I love not having all the plastic bags cluttering up my home. I especially love that I'm helping our environment and when I use them at the store they know how important our environment is to me. I need to order more for my husband!
These bags are awesome. Super strong, fold very small and weigh nothing. Completely easy to keep in my bag everyday with no risk of overloading my shoulder. Completely worth every penny.
I should have bought more of them! I ordered two and love them so much, I will be ordering more. Not just for me and my husband, but also for our family members!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!! I have gotten hundreds of compliments and people comment that they should invest in some. Very durable and can hold so much more then I thought!!!
excellent bag. folds easily into a very small attached pouch. I could not believe it folded so easily. very lightweight. I'm able to carry one in my handbag at all times. it holds more than you would think. I'll be ordering more!
I love my reusable bags! I carry around two of them at all times since they are so compact when folded up. I use them everyday! My only complaint is that the self-contained pouch part doesn’t seem to be as well constructed and the rip-stop nylon is ripping along the top seem. The rest seems strong though and I plan on ordering more for myself, friends and family once they become available again.
These bags work better than we expected. Each bag replaces 3 of the grocery store plastic ones and hold as much as the old big cloth ones. We need even fewer bags to carry in the same amount of groceries. They are sturdy, light, and the colors are cheerful. They load easily at the self check out and store in far less space than previous shopping bags. We are very happy with these and plan to use them for all of our shopping.
great bags - they are really easy to get back into the attached pouch and I can fit 5 of them in my purse!
I love these bags! I keep one in my purse, and several in the car. I have gotten several comments and questions about them. (They're great for taking to the farmers market!) It's taken some "training" on my part to remember to take them into stores, but it's definitely worth it. Once using these becomes second nature, I plan on purchasing the produce bags to eliminate more plastic!
Love em, very convenient size to be able to toss one or two in your purse for everyday small stop shopping.
I am amazed as how small the package is and large and strong the bag is when it is open. I love being able to carry a bag with me at all time. I am tired of all those plastic bags and this is great.
Love my bags!!!! They are terrific for every trip to the store.
Love the convenience of the bags since I can carry one in my purse at all times. Customer service was great. No one mentioned how much fun the bags can be... When my bags came in the mail I anxiously opened and inspected them. Being completely satisfied I put them back in their compact form and did a sneak attack on my kids and bombed them with the bags! We ran around the house laughing and throwing the bags at each other!! Good Times :)
I wanted to find reusable bags that I could take to the store, I am getting tired of all the plastic bags around the house. My mom uses the big canvas bags, but those are so bulky. I ordered four of the resuable bags and LOVE them. They are very compact and I can just throw a few in my purse and have them for the unexpected trips to the store. Another perk about this bag that interested me, is that they are washable. They are very sturdy and can carry a lot of groceries. I am trying to get the rest of my family to order some as well!
I recommend this bag for all your shopping needs. In place of those wasteful plastic bags you get time and time again at the grocery store, buy this bag and reuse it each time you shop. It is durable, comes in perfect basic colors, and priced very well. The best thing, besides the fact that you are helping the earth, is that the bag folds up and becomes so small that you can carry it in your purse. This is a great buy!
I LOVE these bags! They're strong, lightweight and incredibly compact, so that I can carry one or two in my purse and stow some in the car's glove compartment as well. They're also so reasonably priced I've given them to friends to use as well.
I love these bags, because they are small enough to fit right into my small purse (so I don't forget to take them with me), but strong enough to carry a lot of groceries. I once carried four 2-liter bottles in one bag! I've used these bags myself, and given them for gifts twice!
I love these bags. They hold all my groceries and I've found them to be sturdier than plastic grocery bags. I also love the small packaging, which allows me to keep one or two on me at all times for unexpected shopping trips. In addition to cutting down on waste, the bags also help my ditsy self...the bright colors make sure I never leave any groceries sitting at the store or going rotten in my trunk.
I really like these bags. I love how they fold up in my pocketbook so I'll always have them ready. Soft fabric, yet very sturdy. I just have to remember to use them!
These little bags are the best! I already use reusable bags for all of my shopping at home, but I recently visited my mother and sister in New York and gave them both a few for our shopping trips. My mother called me the other day to say she has completely converted and uses them everywhere, she was very proud of herself as am I! We all loved how tiny they really are but so sturdy at the same time, great item!
A wonderful bag...EVERYONE loves them! The small size when folded makes it so easy to take along and use for that unexpected store visit (...honey could you stop at the store on your way home and pick up a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread?)!
I love these bags! They fold up small and are handy to keep in my purse or in the car. They are very lightweight, but sturdy. I often have to tell the baggers to continue to fill them up, they're afraid they will rip, but I've never had a problem! If everyone would use these, instead of the plastic/paper bags, we'd have a lot less waste in the landfills!
Bag is very well made and mimics the "plastic bag" in shape and handle length. It's easy to load, to carry and it folds up so small! It's perfect to keep in my handbag just in case I need a bag.
I got 4 of these, 2 for me and 2 that I force my husband to use. The extra bonus to these is that, when you hand them to the grocery store bag person, they are forced to cram all of your groceries into the bags that you give them, eliminating the 2 items per bag rule that they all seem to operate by. They do hold a ton of stuff and I can get all of my groceries out of my Hummer and into my air conditioned 5,000 square foot house in only one trip!!
Love these bags!! Bravo to the person who came up with the design. They are strong and suprisingly spaceous (you can put more in them than a plastic bag). I like the fact that I can carry one in my pocket or purse. The first time I used them at a store, the clerk looked at me like I was committing a crime. Why is that? It's interesting how people look at you funny when using your own bags. Crazy... I find I have become more aware of my plastic bag useage since purchasing these bags. Thanks for making a great product!!
I really like the bags, they are stylish and lightweight. I still get funny looks taking them in to the grocery (I live in the midwest) but look forward to the day when bags like these are the norm, not the exception! Thanks for a great product.
I love this bag much better then the last i had! It works great and packs up nice and small. All you have to do is shove it back in the pouch, no folding or anything! Plus the pouch is attached and that is really handy.
This bag is perfect. I carry one in my purse at all times.
I used these on my last grocery run, and they were great! They held a lot (I bought five, but a weeks worth of groceries fit in four) and were really easy to unfold and get loaded. My husband is glad he won't have to worry about bags ripping on him anymore.
This is my second order. Originally, I bought 4 bags and quickly realized I needed more. Now I have 8 that I take to the market. I love these bags.
I recieved the bags very quickly and I LOVE them. My fiancee and I have already used them several times. We each keep 2 on us at all times, me in my purse and him in his car. This way we dont have to use plastic bags at any unexpected stops at the store. I love them and am looking to buy a larger tote for those big weekly runs to grocery store, but for now these are working great!
I lover these bags!!!Took me a couple days to get into the habit of getting them out so I could fill them at the checkout and once I did... They were very easy to use. I can shove a whole bunch in my purse and pull them out as I need them.I love not having a hundred plastic bags shoved in the cabinet. Thanks Chrisitne B. NJ
These bags are great. The size and gusseting are great and the handles don't dig into your hands. I would recommend them to anyone.
the grocery bags are wonderful.. i gave a couple of mine to my daughter, so now i need to buy some more. the supermarket checkers just love these.
I carry two of these bags, plus two of the Riesenthal Mini Maxi Haulers (long-handled) in my purse at all times. These are the bags I use - not at the grocery store, where I use my Earth Totes, Pack-N-Totes, Wave Totes, XL Hemp Bags, or whatever bags I decided to use that day - but when I visit smaller stores such as the local pottery shop, the craft store, the shoe repair shop, book store, hardware store, the library, the convenience store, etc. It's been my experience that these smaller non-grocery shopping trips use at least as many, and often more, total bags than the trips to the grocery stores. Do the math: Think about how often we stop at fast-food restaurants or convenience stores and how many bags - paper or plastic - we get from those places. Not requiring bags from these places not only helps the environment, but it also helps the smaller, locally-owned businesses. It's usually the smaller businesses who spend more money per bag by using nicer bags and having their logos on those bags. If you've ever priced those bags, you've noticed they're much more expensive than the bags given out at the grocery stores. While I get strange looks from the clerks at the fast-food places and the convience stores, the folks at the small, locally-owned business (usually the owners) always thank me for bringing my own bags. That said - I purchased my bags perhaps a year ago, and have used them constantly since. They are so lightweight that it is no problem at all to keep them with me at all times and they have held up wonderfully, showing no signs of wear. Excellent product!
i really like the size and shape of the bags. very sturdy, too. i get lots of compliments from the staff at the grocery store!
these are AWESOME because they fold up in the little packets and I can keep them in my purse. I use them all the time.
I was very impressed with the ACME Workhorse 1500 bags. They hold more than the standard plasic grocery bags and are much stronger. I intend on purchasing even more in the future!
Love the bags. Very durable and smart looking, too
The bags are exactly what I expected and needed. I would rather have had the black color if it were available. However, the orange color has actually garnered more attention and spurred more conversation about "getting rid of plastic bags". So, it's perfect. Where did you get these manufactured?
I absolutely love these bags. They fit far more than the conventional plastic bags, and you avoid the double bagging issue because they are so strong! Every time I use one of these bags I am saving 2 plastic bags. Thats a good feeling.
Great! Light, fits into a pocket easily and carries everything.
Handy bag, GREAT idea! The local grocery store wouldn't know what to make of them, but the local health food store was selling something similar!
I don't have anything neg to say about the bags. I love them! I have used them and have given some away to friends and family! It's a pleasure to take them into the store and not worry that a bag is going to split or break. They wash easy and I don't know why I hadn't tried them before now. I wouldn't use anything else. Thanks so much. Diana Whery
Love these bags! They hold a lot more than plastic grocery store bags and I feel good everytime I use them. They're SO small so I always leave one in my purse since you don't always know in advance when you need them. They also clean very easily. I should have bought more! (One for the car, one for my mom, etc...)
I purchased four of these bags for myself and was very impressed. I really like how small they fold up. I purchased four more of these bags for my mom for a birthday present. She has only used them once so far but really likes them.
Love, love, love these bags! We bought four of them & have taken them to the grocery store along with our thermal bags. I love how compact they are when stored & how much food they hold (including canned foods!) without feeling like they'll rip in my hands!
A little larger than the Chico bags. Folds down perfectly for the purse and glove box. Nice attached baggie for refolding.
I purchased three of the ACME workhorse bags. Each bag is large enough to carry at least three plastic bags' work of groceries. I also love their design so they can be folded into the little sewn-in stuff sack. Now all I have to do in convince the grocery store clerks that I don't want either paper or plastic!
These are very handy bags! I bought two that I keep in my purse all the time and it is a blast surprising the checkout clerk with a full size bag from the tiny package.
I couldn't be happier with the nylon bags I ordered. Easy to browse, buy and use. Thank you so much. I'm going to spread the word.
I love these bags. I keep three or four in my purse, and use them almost every day. As I wait in the checkout line I open up my bags, so I am ready to pack as the items are rung up. They hold much more than the cheap plastic bags, and I get positive comments every time I use them. Plus, I no longer have all those plastic bags cluttering up the house. I should have bought them years ago.
This bag really does fold up tiny! And if you are worried about being able to get it back into its little storage bag - don't - it is so easy. I love it.
My favorite bag-fits in my purse weighs nothing and holds a lot of stuff-I will buy more of these!
So far they are terrific. We're trying to decide which to order more of!
The workhorse bags I received should last a long time and eleminate the need for many disposible plastic bags. They are light weight and easy to stuff in an unused storage compartment in the car. Store employees have no problem using them as they are about the same size and shape as the disposible bags. Ed
I LOVE these bags! I ordered 4 to try them out, then ended up ordering 4 more--a couple more for me, and a couple for a friend who saw me using them and also liked them. I've long meant to use my own reusable shopping bags, but always ended up stopping at the store at random times when I didn't happen to be carrying my bags. Now I keep one or two of these in each of my purses/backpacks/etc., so I always have them available when I drop by the store unexpectedly. Plus, as some other reviewers have noted, they're strong and roomy enough to hold a lot of groceries, so each time you use one, you're probably saving about 6-8 plastic bags. My only gripe is that I wish they were made of recycled materials. Overall, highly recommended!
These bags are perfect. I didn't want to shout "save the earth" every time I went to the store, I simply wanted functional, reliable bags with the same size and shape as a grocery bag (but without the waste). These bags are comfortable to string on my arm, hold a lot, and fold into such a tiny pouch that I don't even notice them in my purse (I carry 4). Thanks and keep up the good work!
The beauty of these bags is their portability and capacity. They stuff quickly into small packets for easy storage in your car or purse and unfold quickly at the checkout counter. Plus, they each hold twice as much or more than what a bagger at the grocery typically puts into a plastic bag. They're incredibly sturdy. They are a great, no-hassle way to reduce or eliminate the number of plastic bags you use.
This is not my first acme 1500, I ride a scooter and the 1500 is a perfect bag for transporting stuff as it hooks right onto the scooter. I had to replace my old one that I misplaced. Just keep black in stock and I'll be a happy camper. Robert
I think these bags are perfect. The bagger at the grocery store doesn't seem to mind at all bagging my groceries in them. My biggest challenge is remembering to get them out of the car.
I like that the bags fold into a small pouch and fits into my purse so when I just happen to stop at the grocery store I have them..I do need to order some tall bags for heavy shopping. I like this concept!
They are great...our clients really like them and we appreciate what you are doing. We would love to see more of your bags in the wholesale section so we can carry them. Thank you! Liberty Phoenix INDIGO 322 SW 4th Ave, Gainesville, FL. 32601 INDIGOgreenstore.com
I keep one of these in my purse at all times so I never have to accept a plastic bag again. It's amazingly strong -- my favorite example is the day I found the perfect area rug, which I bought, folded up, and carried back on the bus in my Acme bag! So many friends have admired the bag that I came back to buy a few just to give away.
These bags are awesome. I bought a couple of them and was quite impressed. They stuff small enough for my mom to throw in her purse, and the different colors attract quite a bit of attention. The only negative thing about these bags is the size. They are a little bit smaller than I expected.
Color me happy!! I was so excited to get my bags - they are just as easy to use as described!! You can fit them in a small purse and not have to lug a big canvas bag with you - so I don't have to worry about forgetting to bring my own bag!! YeeHaw!!
I find the Workhorse bags very useful for grocery shopping and other errands. They are strong and have a large capacity, plus being small when folded and easy to bring along. Check-out personnel have no problem using them, and even ask where they could get some.
These bags are perfect--roomy, easy to stash and carry, sturdy, and much lighter in weight and better looking than most canvas bags. I use them all the time for groceries.
ACME Bags - Workhorse Style 1500 i ordered 2 bags and use them whenever I go shopping. They fold easly back into small comparments that I can fit in my purse, so I always have them with me. They are amazling big and strong. It feels good to be doing another thing to help the enviroment. Thanks for the bags! They are Great!
I now have 8 of my own and have bought several for my daughters. They want more. I keep 2 in each of our vehicles and use them when I go shopping. The others I use for grocery shopping. They are wonderful. I am getting a lot of inquiries and the baggers think they are great. I am probablly going to order more. I also purchased the produce bags. Fabulous. Again I am going to order more.
I love these bags! I bought enough to do all my grocery shopping. It's great that I can tell retailers to keep their plastic bags. The color is fantastic and they take up so space. People ask me about them all the time and I am only to happy to tell them about these bags and this website.
These were purchased as a gift--donor was very pleased. Looked to be an excellent product. May purchase for my own use now.
i think the bag's great. the fact that it stuffs down into a little lump lets me carry it in my bag everywhere i go. plastic bags are now a thing of the past!
I love my new ACME Bag! I bought 3 workhorse style 1500 bags. I gave two of them away. Everyone is thrilled with how strong & convenient the product is. Thank you so much!
I love these ACME bags! They are comfortable bags to use and they hold alot. The bagger at the grocery store likes them also because they fit perfectly on the plastic bag holder. Previously I was using another reusable bag that was made from a stiff material with a boxy shape and long handles. I rarely used these bags because they were not convenient to carry in stores. The ACME bag completely folds into a small attached pouch so I can just toss them in my purse.
Wonderful bags! I love how compact they can be- it is so easy to keep 5 or 6 grocery bags in my glovebox for whenever I end up shopping.
The bags are adorable, and it was pretty easy to learn how to refold them into the pouch. I'm starting to get into the habit of using them when I buy stuff. One price of political correctness, though, is having to wash them when I use them to carry something that isn't entirely solid. Oh well.
This bag is perfect! I would always forget my reusable grocery bags in the trunk of my car or in a closet at home, which was never very useful when I was actually in the grocery store. This bag solves that problem by being small enough to stash in my purse. Also, it is super easy to get back into its carrying pouch, and the carrying pouch is actually attached to it, so you never have to worry about losing it. I love this bag!
Love, love, love these bags! At first it took a couple tries to figure out how to stuff the bag back into the pouch, because it seemed like a lot of fabric to stuff in the little pouch, but now its surprisingly easy. I live in an area that isn't exactly into being green, so I get a few strange looks when I pull out one of my bags (I bought one for my purse and one for each vehicle so there's never an excuse for not having one), but everything starts one person at a time! And I'm willing to do my part!
The bags are great. I love the fact that I can carry them in my purse since I sometimes forget to take my larger (purchased at grocery stores) in to the store! Thank you!
I got two of these bags on impulse and I find I'm using them almost daily. I love them. They fold up into a tiny package so I can always have one in my purse or pocket. They are strong, washable, and convenient. I'm going to buy more.
Love the reusable bags! They are great at the grocery store and anwhere else I buy things. The reusable bags are also the most effective environmental message I've ever been part of. The other customers in line and the folks at the register always comment on how great and important it is to save bags. I usually get into some sort of small conversation about environmental stewardship with someone when I use the bag. It is a great visual message that we can send, even without saying a word.
These bags are great! I bought three of them and use them all the time. I keep one in my purse (and I don't carry a very big purse) and one in my car and have even got my husband using them now. They're so convenient and I feel good every time I use one -- I always think, "That's one less plastic bag in the environment!"
My husband and I love our Acme bags. We always keep a couple in our cars so we're always ready to pick up stuff from the grocery store. I've also been using mine for lunches to work. I feel so much better about my life and our world knowing that I'm not waisting and using those horrible plastic bags anymore. Makes my life so much easier and makes me feel better our our future. So simple! Thanks!
Love the bags, like how it's easy to fold back up into a tiny little pouch. Easy to throw a few in my purse and go. Very durable.
I ordered 4 ACME Workhorse 1500 and it is a great product. They are very strong, hold lots of stuff and fold up really easily.I feel good about using them and always remember because I carry they are small enough to carry in my purse. The order came in about 5 days which was exactly what I was told when I ordered. I highly recommend these bags and this company to all! I also ordered an extra SIGG bottle they had on sale (even though it did not come with the cool new sports top we all love), my family loves our SIGG bottles. When we gave up plastic recently we each got a SIGG bottle (or 2) and we don't leave home without one. We live in a very hot & dry climate where constant water intake is a must and the SIGG bottles are the best we have found - surprisingly lightweight, guaranteed not to leak contaminants into drinks, with cool new sports tops we all really like. The only negative is that regular ice cubes don't fit through the opening. My family highly recommends these bottles - good for the environment and your health.
Great bag. The grocery store clerk even commented on how strong it was when I used it for the first time. Takes a minute to figure out, but otherwise it's very easy to use and fits right in my purse!
This bag is great! It's small enough to fit in my purse, and strong enough to carry heavy groceries. Reuse, reuse, reuse.
These are fantastic. So easy to pull out of my purse and use, I've quit bringing home plastic bags and needing a place to put them. I love the compact nature of these, and always having a bag on hand. I got one in every color so I could keep track of them (and what's in them) a little easier.
I love this bag, i keep in the bottom of my purse (its so teeny tiny) and then unfold it and carry home my groceries or items from CVS. Its the size of a normal plastic bag so its perfect.
I have been using nylon bags for the past 20 years, as well as the cotton string bags. What I like about the ACME bags is their unique way of stuffing them into a pouch that you can then put into your purse. You never know what you may pick up during the day, and these bags have come in handy for those situations. I recently attended a math workshop where I received some math products. I pulled out my mini pouch and proceded to open it up, so I could load it up. Fellow teachers were impressed, and it's a great way to show people that you practice what you preach. I bought bags for my mother and two sisters. People will take notice. This is a great product!
The bags seemed small at first but hold a surprisingly large amount of things. When folded into themselves they are very discreet. You can just throw them in your shopping cart and quickly open them up when it's time for checkout.
I found the bags to be very high quality, just the right size and the construction is rock solid.
Very handy. Fit very well in my fairly small purse - for those of us without cars it's really important to have small, portable bags, and these are really easy to fold and unfold.
I think your site is terrific, and I love my shopping bags. No more piles of plastic messing up the house or the landfill.
These are great! Even though they are very lightweight and portable, they hold as much (more) than a plastic grocery bag. Even my huband is using them!
I purchased 4 of the ACME 1500 ultra-compact bags and I love, love, love them! They are plenty small enough to carry in my purse, and a cinch to open easily and quickly while in line. I have gotten many compliments on them. I plan to give several as Christmas gifts this year. To help my kids understand the implications, I started a "Number of Plastic Bags Saved" counter on a white board in my kitchen. So far, we have already saved the world from 22 unwanted plastic bags. Hooray!
I've enjoyed using the 2 bags I recently got. They hold quite a bit and I love the color! I'm going to get some for my grown kids to use. I know they'll like them, too.
I purchased the Acme bag Workhorse style because it looked so tiny, how could I not use it???? Well, I have used it again and again. I always have a bag handy and I love that. No more "oops my canvas bags are in the car" I loved it so much I purchased one for my friend and cannot wait until she gets it. I do get weird looks when I am in a store and pull it out though. Thank you so much! What a great company!
These bags rock. They hold way more than your average plastic grocery bag, and they fold up into nothing. Everywhere I go, people write down the name so that they can order some too!
I've used the ACME bags a few times at the grocery store and just love them. They really are sturdy and I found that 4 bags is enough space to hold my weekly groceries (I buy a lot of food since I cook three meals a day everyday). I bought the orange bags (my favorite color) and have been stopped a couple times by folks asking where I purchased them. It seems more people are interested in simple, stylish ways to do their part to help our environment. I recommend the bags.
I really like these sturdy bags. They truly fullfill their workhorse title -- holding a surprisingly large amount with ease. Also, the tops are small enough not to dump all the contents readily because the nylon is a slick surface (acutally helps getting items in an out).
I love these bags! My sister gave me some as a birthday gift years ago. I use them every week and people at the grocery store always comment on how sturdy they are, how much they hold, etc. I recently lost a couple and had to order more. The years-old bags are still in perfect shape. I wish everyone would use them and rid the world of those nasty cheap, plastic throwaways.
Awesome product. The cranberry color is pretty. I am so glad I found these bags. They hold a lot and are so easy to use.
These bags are amazing! They fit in my glove box so they are always with me but never in my way. The small pouch size makes it easy to carry them around the store even without a purse. They are easy to pull out of the pouch and to put back in. I've already had people ask me where I got them so I gladly referred them to this site.
I love, love, love these bags. I currently have three, with intentions to purchase more. They are light and easily stored in your pocket, on your key chain, or a glove box. These lightweight bags really pack a punch, holding more flimsy plastic bags. I can't help but to have a smile on my face each time I use them. It feels good to know I'm reducing my foot print--if only a little. Buy the bags, you won't be disappointed!
I bought these for my partner because they are lightweight and attractive. She likes them because she can stick a bag in her pocket or they fit nicely in her purse. They have been attracting a lot of attention by friends and strangers alike. The handles do not cut off the circulation in your hand like plastic bags. As a New Yorker, one has to carry things a fair distance and I can assure you that the bags, though lightweight, are up to the task of carrying heavy groceries.
I must say that I love the reusable bags. They are very well received where I shop as they hang on the rack just like the plastic ones and so far the cashiers have liked them, even asking where I had purchased them. At least I feel good when I unpack my groceries and there's not a mound of plastic bags to get rid of. I have recommended them to many of my friends.
I must say that I love the nylong reusable bags. They are very lightweight and 3 of them fit nicely in my pocket or purse. They are very well received where I shop as they hang on the rack just like the plastic ones and so far the cashiers have liked them, even asking where I had purchased them. At least I feel good when I unpack my groceries and there's not a mound of plastic bags to get rid of. I have recommended them to many of my friends.

Having already purchased the sturdier bags for grocery shopping, I was delighted to receive this bag with my last order. It's very lightweight, so it's easy to keep in my purse for the light shopping I do during the week. Even though it's so light, it's very strong. Not using plastic has never been easier!
You guys sent me the ACME bag for free!! what a great gift. I keep it in my car now when I go shopping I have it to take in. MY paper bags are wearing out, this was perfect timing. Thank you
These are great! Very lightweight and easy to bring with you. They fold up into their bag real easy. I bought 4 originally and plan to buy more as 4 wasn't enough for all of my groceries.
The Acme Workhorse is all it's meant to be! I keep three in my purse, and I hardly know they're there. I'm really getting the hang of REMEMBERING to pull them out before the cashier beats me to bagging my groceries. The colors are great, too. I love being on the leading edge of an enlightened society that takes action toward a better world by: recycling, reusing, living simply and living vegan. The Acme Workhorse fits right in!
They are fabulous!! In the three weeks I have used them - I have only taken home 4 plastic bags I would normally have taken 15 to 20 bags home. Over a years time that 100 bags not going to a landfill and that's just from the grocery store. I've carried 24 cans of cat food and a 5# bag of dry food in one bag and no broken handles or split seams. I typically use the "Self-Check Outs" so I can bag my own. I've had people standing in line ask where I got the bags. Great advertisment.
These bags are great! They fold up small enough to fit in my purse and they are easy to refold. They seem to hold at least 3 times what a plastic bag will hold and are very durable! Because they fit in my purse, I never forget to take them to the store! I highly recommend these bags!
These bags are absolutely awesome! I dare anyone to find a better feeling than leaving the grocery store, food in-tow, PLASTIC FREE! Woohoo!
Absolutely love this bag! I have some of the produce bags, but this works well too for bigger produce such as bananas & lettuce. I love the material so much, I sometimes use it for my lunch bag too. It's awesome for items you don't want squished! It's soft & folds up in your purse for un-planned trips to the store for quick items as well! Did I say how much I love this bag!
Tis is my favorite of the two bags (Acme and the less expensive Chico). I like that it folds flattish and does not have any cinches or bells or whistles, just a simple fold over. I have 5, and will probably buy more as gifts for Christmas. Simply love them. I do wish they came in even more colors!
I must have saved at least fifty bags since I got two of these bags a month ago. I can't add more than hasn't been written before!
I ordered 4 ACME Workhorse Style 1500 bags, and they arrived very quickly. I have used them for several shopping trips, and I love them. They are very sturdy and hold more items than standard plastic bags, yet they still help me to limit my purchases (I tend to go overboard at the grocery store). They are are so small when you compact them - all 4 fit into my purse easily. I definitely recommend these bags.
I love these bags! They are so lightweight and pack up very small, so they are easy to carry around in my purse. Grocery store clerks routinely tell me that they're nice bags, and they seem to hold a lot without strain. I've even used them as laundry bags on a recent hotel stay, and as seats for sitting on the grass in a park. Very versatile! I can't imagine life without them any more!
These are great sturdy bags. I bought them because the military commissary where I shop is trying to discourage plastic bag use. I get plenty of inquiries from the baggers and cashiers. The bags are sturdy and easy to use. They are just like the store's plastic bags so the baggers are comfortable with them. It feels good to be helping the environment.
There's really not a more convenient bag than this one. Men can put it in their pocket, women can put it in their handbag...always there and ready for action. It's very durable, always holds more than you think it can, and it's easy to clean. I love it!
These bags are great. They are super sturdy, hold a lot of groceries, and pack up nice and small. I highly recommend them!
Great little bag for storing in purse or larger Farmer's market bag. I alway seem to buy more than I am planning to at the Farmer's market, but I can just pull out this little extra bag, that expands to full size, for all those extras.
very handy fold-up and more convenient than trying to figure what to do with a ll those plastic grocery bags
These are GREAT bags. The material is very light weight, yet incredibly durable. The bag material will not stretch, so bread or other delicate items placed on top stay on top. The whole bag quickly and easily can be stuffed back into the little interior pocket. This makes carrying bags with you convenient and practical. The bags are much bigger than standard grocery store bags, and because they are made of a durable material, they can be loaded with a lot of stuff. These bags are also very stylish; I bought the burnt orange color. I love being ask, "Paper or plastic?" and replying, "No."
I love these bags and love the reactions from clerks when I whip them out. Some think it's great and others just don't get it resulting in a teachable moment. Some still don't get it but at least I can leave feeling righteous!
I only purchased one Workhorse. It is so compact that it found a new home in my purse at all times, and is getting a lot of everyday use. I also purchased the ACME EarthTote™ Shopping Bag Set. If you are looking for grocery bags, I would recommend a set of those over getting several of these. Those bags store folded flat quite nicely and are really sturdy for the baggers to pack with -- they really appreciate how they stand up. However, for an all-around versatile, compact, sturdy bag that you will always have with you, this is an excellent choice!
Both the bags I bought are great and I'm using them exclusively. No more paper or plastic. Thanks, Jo-An
Aside from getting in the habit of using and convincing the sales clerks that I really don't want their bag, it's great. I love how small it folds up and that I can keep it stashed in my purse.
Feels great not to be using so many plastic bags and I never worry that they will tear like some plastic bags do when filled.
I had a hard time deciding between these and the chico bags, so i got some of each. I think these bags win. The fabric feels much nicer, they pack up smaller, they hold more, and they fit in the bag holders at the cashier. That being said the chico bags are still nice, so it depends on how much you want to spend. I think these are worth the extra money.
I have to say that these are my favorite bags to take with me. Everywhere I go whether it's to best buy, circuit city, or the grocery store I always have one with me. Most of the store clerks, especially at best buy are shocked when I say I don't want a bag and I pull out my acme bag and turn it inside out. I always get the questionable "Where'd you get that bag from" question? Of course, I smile and write down reusablebags.com so that they will be limiting their contribution to landfill plastics. The thing I like most about them is their strength and durability. They are very strong bags. I have acme bags and chico bags but acme are my favorite because they feel stronger and hold more weight. I will continue to purchase these bags. Everytime I get a free one I share it with a friend so that they can get turned on to your site as well!
Love it! Great bags, I keep buying more. Thank you!
I got this bag after admiring someone else's, and it is great. One of the best things is that the bag seems very strong, and is much more comfortable to carry than a plastic bag, so I can often put the groceries that would have required 2 or 3 plastic bags into the Workhorse and trundle home. It did take a while to get the bag, though.
These are lifesavers. I keep one in the door of all our vehicles, and all the purses and computer bags. It's great for quick mart stops, and I recieve compliments on them all the time. My kids love them!
I love the bags and carry 1 or 2 with me all the time. I always have one in my briefcase and they're easy to carry in my pocket. The secret to using the bags is to make it easy to have with you all the time. Great idea!!!!!
I LOVE THESE!!!!! They hold so much stuff and are so compact. I carry one in my purse all the time. I haven't used a single plastic bag from the store since I got them. I'm telling everyone about them.
I popped one into my purse and it has come in handy many times for shopping, especially for smaller items. We don't come home with six plastic bags and it is simple to roll it back into it's little pouch and toss it back into my purse for next time.
I keep two in my purse, and two in my glovebox. People in line behind me always rave when I say, "No paper. No plastic. I brought my own" and then whip these babies out. They're fantastic.
I love love LOVE this bag. The material is so soft yet so strong. It is SO easy to gather up into the attached tiny bag (literally a few seconds) and it is so small when I put it in my purse (and I carry a relatively small to medium sized purse) that sometmes I have to dig to find it! The colors are also so cool. It is also the exact same size as plastic grocery store bags, so I think it is easier for baggers to transition to this bag than to another that is a completely different size/shape, since they can also hook it onto the hooks used for the plastic bags.
I love the bags. I keep 2 in my purse at all times. I wish everyone would use them.
I have a few different types of reusable bags, and my two workhorse bags are my favorites. They hold their shape while being packed, are very sturdy and the handles are, well, handy. I've supplied my children with them, as well.
This is my favorite bag to take with me. It folds up nice and small and is convenient to have three to four with me. I throw them in my backpack and forget about them. What I like most about this bag is how strong and durable it is. I think it holds around 25 lbs of produce, or whatever you want to put in it. It feels like a strong bag and I always get questions about it when I unfold it. I take these to the grocery store, best buy, circuit city or anywhere else where I might be shopping. I love the looks I get from people in Best Buy when I whip one out and have them put my purchases in one of these rather than a plastic bag. These bags very well may mean the death of plastic.
I just received my bags - different sizes - and am anxious to start using them. My order was handled promptly - thank you.
Bag is compact and light - needed a little practice in folding the bag back into the pouch. While I would have liked the straps to be longer, I find it extremely useful while shopping - the bag is so compact that I have the four I ordered in my pocketbook whenever I go shopping as they take so little space.
I love these bags! They fit right in my purse and I have barely used any plastic bags at all since getting these. They are strong and sturdy and people always ask where I got them. I'm proud to tell them where!
I LOVE these bags. I feel very european with my bags and also find them easy to carry in my purse. they are strong and with the built in stuff sack, it takes a few seconds to put them away. when i do a large order, i take 9 bags in one of the other bags. i feel proud to not be using any plastic bags for anything anymore.
We ordered 2 Basura Insulated Lunch Bags for school this year. My kids LOVE them!!They feel good they're re-using materials and we love how they seem to be naturally insulated. I highly recommend this bag for all young environmentalist. We also ordered a reusable plain black acme bag for my husband to use, and FINALLY he has stopped bringing home plastic trash grocery bags from the store. This bag is great as it has solved my problem of getting him to carry in his own bag. Customer service is excellent as well...we will be sure to order again in the future!!
I think the bag is great! It fits easily into my small purse so it is ready to use anytime and I don't forget to take it into the store with me.
LOVE IT! I just keep it in my purse and use it for all those small purchases. Small but really tough.
I keep 2 orange bags in my car. They work great. They hold more than you'd think. My problem is to remember to use them!! duh. I washed one in the washer because meat juice was all over it. It came out fine. No complaints, no problems here. These bags are awesome.
I have used the bags several times. They are convenient to carry along and easy to unfold and refold. The stores seem to appreciate not using up their bags.
This bag is so convenient. I have other larger bags but sometimes forget to bring them into the store. I always have this one in my purse because it is so compact. It is nice and sturdy too. Also, it is very easy to stuff it back into the little attached tote.
Wow! These bags are the size of the plastic disposible bags, but super strong. The best thing is that they are so compact. I keep a few in my bag and never realize they are there - until I need them!
This is my favorite bag ever! I carry it with me everywhere - just in case. The slick light fabric makes it super easy to get it into and out of its built in pouch and it is small enough that I clip it onto my keys or belt. I walk and ride my bike to run errands and this handy little bag is the best. Plus, it makes me look smart when I whip it open in stores!
This bag is great! I keep it my purse and it hardly takes up any space. I am always prepared with a reusable bag and never have to take plastic bags.
I really like these bags. Nice and strong. The fact that they fold into itself rocks. I have others that have a separate pouch. I lost one of the pouches so it's not nearly as portable now. The only thing i would like to see is a snap strap so i can hook it onto my purse or key chain. I will use some carabiners to tote them. These are going to be a hit at christmas as gifts!!!!!
I like these bags quite a bit. They are great for grocerys. They aren't so good for heavy books with pointy corners, but overall I am very satisifed. They are easy to stuff back into the attached bag.
As soon as I got the product I saved 5 plastic bags that day. I love pulling out this reusable bag and people commenting. I always give them the website hoping that they will look it up. I love these bags and will be giving some as gifts. It's a great idea for the environmentally savvy!
These bags are great! Convenient, compact and CUTE! I used two all summer for walking to the grocery store and liked them so much, bought every color for my buddies at work! Wonderful bags! Elizabeth G. - Oregon
These are great bags. I don't use the attached pouch--it's too much trouble to stuff it back in and take it out. But they're the same size and shape as the plastic grocery bags and do the job well. Durable and easily wiped down to clean.
Love this bag!! It is so much better than any other reusable bags: compact, big, durable - so I always have it on hand, rather than forgetting it in my car. It tucks into my purse + barely takes up any space. Then it slips right onto the checkout bag rack and holds more than an average supermarket plastic bag. If I'm stuck at a store where they bag your items, I just hand it over for them to slip onto the bag rack - no complaints with a floppy reusable bag that isn't easily packed. I bought a second one so I never have to use plastic store bags again!
I bought a couple of these bags a few months ago and I love them. They are small enough that I can easily fit two of them in my medium-sized purse along with all the other junk in there, like a string bag, but unlike string bags, they completely cover whatever you buy, so you don't have to worry about your stuff getting dirty if you need to set your bag on the ground. They're also strong enough to put cans in when I go grocery shopping -- although I don't know that I'd fill them to the brim with all cans -- and, like the plastic bags they're meant to replace, they're pretty water resistant, so you can use them in the rain. (I've even used one as a rain hat in a pinch.) Also, they really do fit back into the little pocket easily when you're done. (Watch the video--you can just stuff the bag back in. At first I was trying to fold it up neatly the way it was originally folded, but you really don't need to be fussy or precise about it -- just stuff it back in there.) Having the pocket attached the bag is great. I'd be sure to lose it otherwise, and the pocket keeps the bag nice and compact in my purse.
While we have the availability to recycle the usual (number 2) plastic grocery bags, we didn't feel that this was enough, so we decided to purchase reusable bags for our grocery shopping (and for other uses). During our first shopping trip with the new bags, we discovered they were as good as advertised. Great product. Keep up the good work.
I love that little bag! It amazes store clerks when I tell them "I don't need a bag" and then whip that thing out of my purse, many have even asked me where I got it. It's so small and convenient, and it just makes sense to use it and not have all those bags.
Great bags, they take up very little space in my purse and hold more than grocery store bags hold. I'm so glad I bought a pair; nice to know that I'm always ready for unplanned/unexpected purchases.
I love these bags and so do the baggers at the grocery store! The bags are easy to load groceries into, they hold alot, and everyone is amazed at how compactly they fold up. I plan to order more.
Great reusable bags... It is fun to shake things up a bit at the grocery store when the checker has a confused look that you wish you used your own bags that you brought with you. : )
We tuck these bags in our pockets for a quick trip to the store. They are strong and hold all that we've purchased.
This bag is terrific. Small and lightweight so I can always have one with me. It holds a surprising amount and is easy to stuff back into its self-attached pouch when no longer needed. I have many types of reusable bags, but this is the one I always use first.
I bought three of these bags in the cranberry color for my weekly trip to the grocery store. My partner and I usually walk to and from the store and these bags have held up well carrying the equivalent of 6-8 plastic bags worth of groceries and household supplies each Sunday. I've also found them handy to tote my clothes to the drycleaners and for other errands. The grocery checkers don't seem to get that these bags fit over the same holding station as the disposable plastic bags they use - even though I've mentioned this each time I shop.
AMAZING! They open up to be so much larger than you think! I love them and have people ask me where I got them! :)
These bags are so easy to use - the small size when folded into the pack allows me to keep some in my purse, some in the glove compartment so I always have one when needed. I was recently in Africa and carried a gift in one - the woman who received asked to keep it, seemed more impressed by the bag than the gift! Will make great stocking stuffers for the holidays...
Excellent strength, store small and very useful! We have decreased our plastic bag use to nil !
I love these items! I get a lot of responses, always positive, when I use them. The stickers and buttons get a lot of attention, too, when they read "Plastic Bags Blow" because they think something else, then when I tell them how I'm doing my part to save the environment, they realize how wonderful it is!
The bags are terrific. I bought the orange color while a friend purchased the blue-both are lovely, bright and fun. The bags are easy to use, their own little "stuff sacs" work extremely well, the bags are well made and live up to their use specifications. I can't think of any negatives-they are well worth their relatively inexpensive price.
You have solved my Christmas gifts for this year but ONLY wish I could have gotten at the 4-pack price one of EACH of them for variety in the Christmas morning choices of reusable bags. Only thing better would have been to be able to get variety pack! I walk to the store and the bags are so easy to pop open to use and then so easy to rinse up to quickly dry as had LEFT mine outside when it had rained while visitors were leaving my house and I was starting the water on flowers going. . . . Very quick service too! Darlene
love them! they fit in my regular briefcase and purse so I never have to worry about forgetting them - even if I stop at the store on a spur of the moment errand!
The bags are sturdy, convenient and easy to replace in the pouch. It is a great solution for those of us who have occasional problems remembering to bring our cloth bags into the store. They also provoke questions from other shoppers. Perhaps those little bags will bring more plastic bag users onto the bandwagon!!!!
The best thing about these bags is that they are compact and I can take it anywhere with me...not just the grocery store. When I forget my other bags at home, I can just pull this one out of my purse. They are great gift ideas and are very useful.
I love the bags: they fold snuggly, are well designed, strong and neat. I wouldn't mind if they came in more colors and - patterns! They even make a great gift. Your site is straightforward, ordering was very easy. Finally - my order arrived very quickly and was very neatly packaged. No wasted paper. Keep up the good work! e,.
5 stars to your reusablebags that I actually use since I can store 4 of them easily in my pocketbook so always have them with me for my shopping. They are strong and roomy. I already have had severaal people in line ask me where I got them. I plan to buy more as Christmas presents to my extended family.
The bags come in very handy! I typically keep reusable bags in my car, but a couple of times I've forgotten to take a bag, or enough bags, into a store, but no worries! I've just pulled out my Workhorse bag(s) from my pocketbook and I'm good. They're so lightweight and small I carry two around in my bag. They also fold up very easily back into their built-in pouch. It's like magic! My one improvement request would be to make a slightly larger size. I mainly purchased these to use when I go shopping to stores other than grocery stores and the size is a little smaller than I would have liked. But overall, I'm very happy with the bags and plan to buy more to give out as gifts.
The little workhorse does a big job. It's convenient and attractive. I only wish you sold them in a set of assorted colors. I plan on giving your prducts as Christmas gifts this year.
I use all sorts of reusable bags, from canvas totes to string bags. The Acme Workhorse tops them all with its tiny, tuckable size and the comfortable handle design - doesn't cut into my hand when it's loaded!
Thank you for helping me get rid of all those plastic bags! I bought four of your reusable bags and take them with me everywhere. It's amazing, too, how much can fit into one bag! I will buy more and give them as Christmas gifts.
I really like my new bag, and am getting positive feedback when I pull it out of my handbag at the grocery store. My only wish is that you had a few more bright colors, so it can be easily found at the bottom of my handbag!( I am using an orange one)
These bags are perfect. They're strong/durable, lightweight and easy to use/store. They hold the perfect amount of stuff. The bags don't roll around in your car like the plastic versions and the handles don't come unglued like the paper ones. Toss them in the washer and air dry. I bought four. I highly recommend them.
This product is lightweight, has an attached stuff bag which makes it very compact, stores the same amount of groceries as a plastic grocery bag, and is washable. Because it is so small, it helps you get into the habit of putting them in your purse to carry at all times (thus breaking the habit of using plastic bags). This product was reviewed in the Wall Street Journal and that's how I heard about it. I purchased a bunch for stocking stuffers this Christmas.
These bags are great! I like how they fit in my purse and I can just whip them out to stash my groceries in them. No more piles of plastic grocery bags. They hold much more than the plastic bags can. I've already ordered more - some more for me and some for gifts. Great product!
The bags will be a christmas present for our daughter who lives in Germany where grocery bags are not supplied for free. I read about them in the Wall Street Journal and they seem to be what I expected. Our other daughter said that she thought that they were great.
I love the fact that the bags weigh practically nothing and are only about 3" x 3" when folded up. I feel good every time I use them, knowing that I'm not wasting a paper or plastic bag.
These bags are so great! The best thing is that I don't have to remember to grab them at home before I go shopping. They're so small that I just keep them in the glove box and they're always ready. Thanks for a great product!
Excellent product! Love the way it stuffs into the tiny case. My only regret is that I would have ordered a color other than black because it is so small and I can never find it in my black-lined purse or tote!
I love these bags. I purchased 4 of them and use them everywhere I shop. They are easy to carry, and hold a lot of items. It is easy to fold the bag back into the pouch. I get lots of comments at the check-out from the clerks. Thank you for providing a quality product.
Ordered some for me and for my family. I've had many cashiers and people in the line comment that it's a good idea to do something for the environment. This bag advertises itself! It's the perfect size for grocery shopping and other errands, and is so easy to get back into the pouch. I make sure it's always in my purse.
The compact design makes this great for tossing in a bag, sticking in a pocket, throwing in the glove compartment or clipping to a belt loop (I have mine on a carabiner). So far it's been incredibly durable and I often have to tell baggers to keep loading it up since they are used to plastic bags which can't handle three half-gallons of o.j., two tubs of yogurt and a couple blocks of cheese at a time!
This product rocks! I also own the Reisenthel market basket, which I love, but sometimes I forget to bring it into the store with me. I would get to the counter and say "Damn!" Now I am never without my own bag because I have the Acme bag in my purse at all times. It is so great!
I am in love with these bags! Everyone is so shocked in the shopping line when I whip them out and fill them with LOTS of stuff. I only have 2 and thats all I need for most trips. I love that I can just throw the little bundle right back in my purse and forget about it. Everyone needs these.
Excellent! Tiny size when put into pouch is great as is the Rip-stop nylon!
The bags are great to use and we are able to get many items into the bags. We use them not only at the grocery store, but also at Target and Menards, too. We keep the bags by the back door and grab them on the way out. We plan to buy two to four more bags to keep in each of our cars, too.
We have been very pleased with 5 of the six bags we ordered. However, one of the 6 was frayed and torn when it arrived and is unusable. Perhaps you can tell us where to return it in order to get it replaced? As for the 5 bags we are using we are very pleased. I think the best part is how easily they fold and fit into a pocket or purse. This helps in remembering to use them when in the grocery store.
Love, love, love these bags. I always keep one in my purse and one in my glove compartment. My usual canvas bags are too big to lug around all the time and these are great for those impromptu trips.
This is just a great product. It fits easily in my diaper bag and it can handle so many groceries. I've gotten several compliments on the bag at Trader Joe's. Everyone needs a few of these!
I love carrying this bag in my purse for unexpected shopping trips. It unfolds to a large size, but it's extremely light. It's a great way to introduce people to the idea of reusable bags. I would highly recommend it!
Great bag! The fact that it folds so small makes it perfect. We love pulling it out of pocket and with a flick of the wrist - a big bag! It's very sturdy and holds quite a lot. Just right for a run to the store.
I sent these to my daughter in Tucson and she loves them. Thanks so much.
This is a great product, I love not having to go through the hassle of recycling old bags. Besides who knows just how much is recycled!! The ONLY negitive thing I have to say is that these bags are made in china as well as other things that I bought(Klean Kanteen and carrying sling for same product.
It's compact size makes this bag a no-brainer. I don't have to remember to put it in my car. I just fold it back up immediately after using and stick it in my purse. It holds a LOT of food, and never even slightly feels like it would rip. Great material, extremely strong and sturdy. I'm giving these away in xmas baskets this year and buying more for my family.
I love this bag because it is so compact and incredibly strong. You can fit way more in it as far as space and weight are concerned than any regular plastic bag.
I ordered these bags to keep in my van so I would always have bags handy for unexpected shopping. They are so tiny, folded up, that they can be stored almost anywhere. My husband is delighted to have bags that don't break on him when he carries the groceries in from the car. I'm delighted to have bags that work like the regular plastic bags but don't have to be thrown out once I get home.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Acme bags. They are so compact I carry one in my medium size purse at all times, and keep more handy in the glove box. Fits in the palm of your hand, lightweight, and flattens when stored. It's just like having a regular grocery bag, but stronger and slightly less expansive.
the bags arrived quickly and as advertised. i couldn't be more pleased.
This bag is fabulous, its light enough to carry around in my bag all the time for when I pick up grocieres or other items on my way home from work. I have used it almost every day since I received it. It is very durable and weighs almost nothing. I am very happy with my purchase and may buy more as gifts for other city-dwellers who cannot carry everything around in their cars.
Absolutely love it. It's much easier to pack with groceries and store after use than my old canvas bags. Plus it's attractive. Every time I shop, people as me where I got the bag.
We ordered the Workhorse 1500 bag to give out as Christmas gifts to our employees. We as Wheaton Franciscans are dedicated to care of the earth and what better way to pass these values along to our employees.
I love this bag because it stores easily in its little envelope and I can fit it in my tiny handbag. Now, even in a clothing store, I can use my cloth bag instead of the overlarge, plasticized, logo laden store bags, yippee!
Great bags - I bought because of the Wall Street Journal article about a month ago. I ordered a few to stick in my car. All works as advertised...no more plastic for me!
I love everything about these bags (I ordered two, so far): they are environmentally friendly, compact, portable, lightweight (I keep one in my purse and one in my car), strong, and versatile. I use them for grocery shopping, travel, and anything else where I would use a tote bag. A great value, too.
I would highly recommend these to anyone. They are designed much like a plastic shopping bag only they have longer handles and are very strong.
Great bags! Love how light and portable they are, not to mention how durable! Easy to have on hand and use for almost any purchaes.
I love these bags! I have bought 4 bags so far and plan to buy more bags so I have enough to go grocery shopping. Even the cashier at the grocery store thought it was a great bag. :)
The bags work fine. I just have to remember to take them into the store each time.
The bags arrived quickly. They are being saved as stocking stuffers for our adult kids.
These bags are great if you understand their limitations. They aren't suitable for all merchandise, such as boxes with sharp corners or heavy tin cans. Because of this I use them with the ACME EarthTotes. I generally carry six of the EarthTotes and six Workhorse bags to do my monthly shopping. I make sure I arrange the groceries on the checkout counter so that the light items go in the Workhorse bags and the heavy stuff goes in the EarthTotes. Using this system grocery shopping is much more enjoyable and it is far easier to carry the groceries into the house.
I love these bags so much that, after the first order of 3 bags, I reordered 5 more! I think the best feature is the fact that they fold up so small. The size allows me to keep a few of them in my purse and in my car so I never forget to take them to the grocery store. I also love the looks I get when I perform my little "magic trick" and produce a full bag out of a little ball! Thank you - keep up the good work!
In addition to bringing this bag to the farmers market and supermarket, I like to keep one in my purse (so tiny!!!) at all times for those incidental purchases as I'm out and about. Excellent product.
I have been very pleased with the bags that I purchased. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect when I ordered them. The 'footprint' of the bags that I ordered is similar to the plastic bags that you get from Target and Walmart, which is great for merchandise, but for groceries, I prefer the typical brown bag footprint, so I will be ordering some of those in the near future. The service was excellent and I will definitely be ordering from this site the next time I purchase bags. Thanks for providing such a needed product!!
Holds more than the plastic grocery bags, and I don't have to worry about it breaking, spilling groceries everywhere!
ACME Bags™ - Workhorse Style 1500 Love them! Stuff so small and light I can always have them with me. Tough, voluminous, and really nice color too!
I love these bags! Because they are small, I can have one in my purse at all times. I inevitably don't think of bringing my own bag until the cashier is ringing me up...then I can pull it out. The bags are very strong, and hold every bit as much as a plastic bag. They are small and light when folded, so you carry them with you without even noticing.
I love this bag! I would often forget my reusable bags when making a quick trip to the store, or when running errands during lunch. I keep this compact bag in my purse and I now always have my own bag. I purchased a set for the ladies in my office who have raved about my new bag.
This bag is easy to carry, easy and convenient to use, and easy to fold back up (or stuff back in, as one of my friends does).
My Acme Bag can fit into any purse and is ready to whip out at a moment's notice. It feels very strong and secure, even with twice the contents of a regular plastic bag crammed into it. These are definitely going to be stuffed in a lot of stockings in my family come Christmas morning. Thank you!
I just love the fact these little bags can fit in my purse... when I'm out with the grandkids I always have a bag at hand for the stuff they buy or collect. And when I shop at Whole Foods stores I now get a rebate of 5 cents per bag-- at this rate it will pay for itself as well as help the environment. My relatives now want ones for themselves! Bev L. California
I love the ACME bag! It holds a lot and it's surprisingly strong. I also love the fact that when it's all folded up, it fits anywhere. Very travel friendly. Great bag!
I love these bag! The mail reason I did not use reusable bags before was that I always forgot them at home. These are nice and compact. I can easily keep them in my car and slip them into my purse. I plan on purchasing several more for family and friends.
The workhorse style nylon bags are fantastic value for the money. I hardly ever need to use more than 3 in a trip because they hold so much, and I love how easily they fold into their little pouch! I'm not afraid to throw anything in there because they are machine washable, and everytime I'm at the store at least one person asks me where I got them, so I refer them to reusablebags.com!
I LOVE these bags. They're light as a feather, so I can carry half a dozen in my purse and never know they're their until I need them. And they hold so much more than I expected! Being able to wash and reuse them makes them very cost-effective too. It's great not to feel guilty about adding to the plastic bag problem anymore. The documentaries I've seen showing our landfills overflowing and wild creatures being choked to death have convinced me that we all have to do what we can to reduce waste. And this is such a painless way to be responsible. Barbara W. - Ohio
Love the ultra compact bags, they are tough and hold a lot, I am reccomending them.
I love this bag! I love that I can keep it in my purse for those times that I make quick trips to the store and forget my canvas bag in the car. My husband likes that he can put the bag in his pocket so he doesn't have to carry anything in his hand when he goes into the store.There aren't enough stars to give this bag!
Love them! They fold up small enough to carry in your pocket and they're sturdy even though they weigh next to nothing. Great bag.
I love these compact bags. The colors are beautiful and they fold up so small you can store them easily in your purse. I keep one in my purse for those small trips to the drugstore or grocery store. I keep 2 extra in my glove compartment for those marathon errand days. They fit a large amount of things and are so soft. I recommend buying a few of these to keep with you and a few of the larger earthtotes for large grocery trips. You will never need to get a disposable bag again! I bought 2 workhorse, 2 earthtote, and a few of the cotton produce bags for a wonderful gift. I felt great when I got them and feel even better sharing it with others.
These sturdy bags are great, especially how they fold up into their own little pouch. I love being able to whip out my own bags at the grocery store. And because these fold up small and store easily, I keep a couple of them in my purse and never have to worry about leaving my bags out in the car on those last-minute, after-work stops at the grocery!
The bags have been great,although some stores are a little reluctant to use anything but plastic.It makes me feel that I'm at least doing a little something to help with the global warming issue.The bags are very easy to use once you you go through the re-packing drill.My daughter also uses the bags. Thankyou for your great product, Elsa
I love my bags. I keep one in my purse at all times and they're so easy to wash if they get dirty. Now I'm back to buy some for Christmas presents!
I have received my order of ACME-workhorse bags I am very satisfied with my purchase but it's true some stores are reluctant to me using my own not plastic bag. I have cashiers argue with me about they want to use the plastic bags.I am paying for those groceries how it's package is my decision. Magda, Texas
You never will have the excuse that you forgot your bag at home. Small enough to always have in your purse. You could even carry it in a pocket. Heavy duty for a small bag. Easy to fold back up too.
Good product but I do wish the handles were a little bit bigger.
Thank you, for thanking me for being a returning and loyal customer with my acme bag.I have told amily and friends about your site, and I think they will be visiting, I to will be ordering soon.
These are wonderful and so compact. I have them and have sent them to all my kids and even my sister.
I love this bag. I carry 4 with me all the time (easily fits in the bottom of my purse) and use them constantly. They are fantastic for anything: grocery, clothes, etc. I haven't brought a plastic or paper bag in to my house since I got them months ago. I frequently get comments ("WOW! Cool Bags!") from check out people as I magically pull 4 bags out of their handy little holders. And they are so sturdy I have not worries about holding loads of stuff (much more than paper or plastic can hold). I've just ordered a bunch as holiday gifts for my co-workers. Next year for Earth Day I'm working on getting my company to give everyone a bag as a push toward responsible consuming. Thanks for such a great bag!
The bags are excellent. They are very convenient and have already helped me earn bag discounts at local grocery stores.
Great bags for daily use. These are a gift for my daughter this Christmas--I have the same ones and use them all the time.
I adore this bag! I live downtown and walk a lot, and I keep a few of these bags clipped to my purse or belt loop. They're strong--I have used them to carry library books, a bottle of wine, clothes and shoes from the thrifts, a six-pack of bottled beer. The bag folds away to almost nothing and makes it easy to never have to bring a plastic bag home with you. I bought these for all my closest downtown friends for Christmas this year.
Have used it several times including the Downtown Farmer's market. No problems with a load of zichinni, apples and tomatoes. The best part is that I had it in my purse and ready to go! It's also easy on the hands!
I like these bags mostly because they fold up so small that I can put them in my purse. The only problem I have is unfolding them while I'm in the checkout line. They fold up inside-out, so you must unfold them from the compact size, then turn them outside-in and then give them to the bagger. If I have time, it's no problem--it's when I am the only one in line and get the impatient glances while I'm doing this. Other than that, they are great. They also save me trips when unloading groceries because they can hold much more than plastic sacks.
I bought these bags on Earth Day 2007. I love these bags! I purchased 6 of them and it is very rare that I need to use all of them at once at the grocery. They are so convienant, large, strong and durable...and I like the color (Cranberry Red). I am constantly getting comments at the checkout from others in line and the cashiers about how nice it is that I am bringing my own bags and people want to know where I got these very nice reusable bags. I feel really good that I am doing a small part to less impact the enviornment and my children are excited about this as well. Just in the last two months stores in our area have started selling reusable bags. I wish that they would sell the ACME bag because I think more people would use them because of the quality. The ACME Workhorse bag ($7-8) costs considerably more than the ones sold at the grocery (99cents-$3)or in the mall but it is worth it for these reasons: 1. The ACME bags fold up into themselves and fit in your coat pocket, purse, etc....so I always have them with me and they aren't easily forgotten. Plus in the checkout, my kids have fun opening them up to be ready for the bagger. 2. The ones sold at the store are bulky, cumbersome, have a giant label slapped across them so they are not something that you want to carry into other stores (I don't want to feel like a walking advertisement)...also the store bags are easy to forget since you can't throw them in your purse or pocket, are not very strong and do not have a practical design. My mom bought a couple and she can never seem to remember to bring them along to the grocery and her groceries are always falling out. 3. The ACME bag is very strong...I load my with canned goods and have had no problems. To keep cans from falling out in the car, I tie the handles together. They are also large enough to hold the contents of approximately 3 plastic bags. 4. Because I always have the ACME bags with me I use them for everything...to clean out the car, carry extra items to or from work, to hide suprise presents from my girls on the way home from shopping and more. 5. The ACME bag is easily cleaned, so again they can be used for anything! Thank you for a great bag!!!
I bought four of your nylon shopping bags and am very pleased with them. They have all the advantages of the throwaway shopping bags (that is, you can fold 'em up tiny and put 'em in your pocket)plus they are sturdy and hold quite a lot - and ``Moroccan Blue'' is a very pretty color :) Highly recommended: in fact I have already recommended to several people who stopped to admire them.
My whole family loves these bags. I have bought a few for my son for x-mas as he saw them and thought they were great. I am sure we will be ordering more in the near future. Any chance I get to show them off I do. People think they are great and I let them know exactly where to purchase them. Great product!
Please do not post. The reusable bags are fantastic. I'm giving them away as Christmas presents this year. I keep one in my purse and three more in my car to make sure I always have enough to handle my shopping. The checkout clerks and baggers are equally impressed.
I got several of these for gifts (along with some Pack-n-Totes and produce bags for myself), but I can't bear to give them away. Folded into their little attached packet thingie, they're about the right size to stuff into your bra (LOL!!!) but they open up to a good big-sized plastic bag-shaped bag. I was going to use the organic net bags for my produce, but I think I'll use these instead. I can hardly wait to go shopping so I can show off my three Pack-n-Totes and these wonderful bags. If I had it to do again, I would have bought these bags to be either "little" gifts or as wrapping for bigger ones or for food-type gifts. Even birthday gifts for children could be wrapped in these. I see no reason why one could not lightly tie the handles together like we do with the plastic bags.
My bags arrived yesterday, and I shopped with them today. They're awesome! At first I was disappointed, and thought they seemed too flimsy, but they hold a ton! I had a shopping cart almost filled, and with my 5 bags, I fit almost all my groceries in them; I only needed two plastic bags. I bought 7 more bags for gifts, and I'll be buying more for myself. You WILL be happy with these bags! They're fantastic!
Very clever design and excellent quality of construction. I love the bag and gave it to several of my friends as a gift.
I bought a couple of these bags for my family a few months back. The best thing about these bags is that they fold up so small; I keep one in my handbag all the time, so I have it whenever I need it. Another great feature is that they fit on the plastic bag holders at the register, which makes them extra convenient when going through the self-checkout. I thought they were a great product, so I recently ordered several more to give as gifts.
the ability to fold the bag into its own pocket is brilliant. my wife easily carries 3 of these in her purse....love them
These bags are hands down my favorite reusable bags EVER. They are tiny! I can easily drop 2 or 3 in my purse for unexpected shopping trips. They take up so little room. Yet, when you unfold them, they're big and very sturdy. The construction is great. I've been using them regularly for almost a year and all of the seams are holding strong. If they accidentally get dirty, you can wash them easily. And they come in a variety of fun colors.
I love your bags - I keep 3 of the Acme workhorse 1500 in my purse and now I never have those terrible plastic bags coming home from the supermarket with me. It is incredible how much each bag holds. Thank you for such a wonderful solution to the plastic bag problem. Lisbeth F., MAssachusetts
I've only used them them a few times as they are a recent purchase, but I already love them! They are lightweight and pack up into the tiniest pouches, so they are easy to store or carry with you. And I like the idea of of not having plastic bags cluttering up my kitchen is almost as attractive as the obvious environmental benefits.
The most useful item in my purse: holds more than you think possible, easy to use and store away when you're done and there's no need to try to find a use for plastic bag with a hole in it when you get home. The colors stay bright after washing. My teenager has one in her backpack and she uses it religiously.
I already had about 6 of these in black. LOVE THEM! I have been using them since before they came in other colors and, when I realized that I needed a few more, decided a color might be a nice change. The red is lots of fun and I actually put all of my freezer items in the red bags so that I know what to unpack first when I get home! (Of course this only works if I bag my own groceries or have a really great bagger at my line!) These are seriously great bags, hold a lot, fold small (I keep one in my purse!), are washable... and people ask me about them ALL THE TIME!
Awesome! I have tried the canvas bags in the past but they were cumbersome and it made it real work to be environmentally conscious. But now the ACME bag really makes it fun to do my part to help the enviornment! They are so easy to use, I just store them in the side pocket of the door in my truck and they are always there when you need them. I even use them to do all my other shopping. In the 2 weeks I have had them I have probably kept from using at least 50 plastic bags!
I LOVE these bags...not only are the colors cool but they fold up so tiny that I can fit them in my purse! I have given so many away as gifts and everyone is always so pleased and charmed by them! Plus, we can all feel we are doing our part to reduce plastic bag use! Thanks for the great product...maybe you can add some new colors or possibly some funky prints to these bags so I have an excuse to buy some more!!!
The ACME bags are great! I purchased them as stocking stuffers with a goal to help the environment. The only thing that could be a little better are the handles...wish they were a little longer. Other than that the bags are so easy to fold back and carry with you. I would highly recommend them.
I love your products and I love how easy you make ordering on-line. I love the fact I receive what I order so quickly! Keep up the good work. MKL
I had an old Chico bag which I purchased last Feb that I love. I was surprised to see the new Chico bags are a stiffer nylon. But perhaps it is stronger. The ACME bag was so highly rated on your site that I thought I would try some of those too. They seem to have the softer nylon that I expected in the Chico bag, but I'm not sure about the style. I expected it to a bigger bag from the description, but it is close to the same size. The handles & top of the Chico bag seem to be reinforced with a double layer of nylon, while the Acme bag handles are simply hemmed on the side and the handle opening of the Acme bag is small. I often like to carry my bag over my arm or shoulder & it barely fits over my arm. The Acme bag is styled a bit bigger at the top & smaller at the bottom, so maybe is easier to load. I think I like the Chico better, but may change my mind as I actually use the Acme more. All this said, both bags are small compact to carry bags that hold quite a lot and are handy to have
The compact bags I bought are great ... I keep three in my purse. I have gotten lots of compliments on them as well. This Christmas, I bought some for my daughter and for my son. Great service from this company too!
love these bags. I keep 4 in my purse so they are always handy. They are so lightweight - and take so little space, I hardly notice they are occupying purse space. Apparently I was the first one to bring my one bag to walmart, Sams and other stores in Dallas - After a little clerk training - yes, the bags hold 25 pounds - just stuff them - and yes, they have handles to fit over the bag thinger - the clerks started recognizing the bags:) For Xmas, I gave to friends and family. So buy some bags - small steps make a difference when a lot of people take those steps - and use one or two less plastic bags!
I am taking time out of my day to write a review of this bag because it is UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME! I bought two for me and two for my husband and I am definitely buying more. They are so tiny and lightweight all folded up that you won't even notice them in your purse or your work bag. And then there they are when you go shopping! I was skeptical about them folding up into the attached pocket, but they do! It's very easy to do, too. The size of the bag is great. I have used them to go grocery shopping, shopping in clothing stores, and Target. I cannot believe how wonderful these bags are!! Don't hesitate, buy them!
A good idea, though it is almost impossible to refold after use into the packet. Nonetheless, the bags will get used a lot.
i use my bags all the time, when I remember to fish them out of my purse. The checkers always look surprised when I unfold it.
I think these reusable bags are great. So easy to carry around, the colors are attractive and a great way to make a small difference in making this a better world.
These bags are the best! I ordered a number...some for gifts and a couple for myself. They are roomy and very sturdy and I love how easily they fold back up into their little pouches. I keep them in my purse and am slowly but surely remembering to dig them out to use when shopping. I've gotten some curious looks, but also some very nice comments and people asking where they can get them. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
I had a bag when I needed it! I often forget to keep bags in the car, on the off chance that I'll need one. I got this back as a stocking stuffer, put it in my purse - and there it was! A great bag, held everything I need for that unplanned trip to the store and as soon as I emptied it at home, back in its pouch and back in my purse it went! What a great idea!
Gave your ACME Bags™ - Workhorse Style 1500 as stocking stuffers, and they were a hit. I've been using mine for several months, and the ease and portabililty make it a contant companion in my car. I do wonder how you distribute your coupons, though. I ordered months ago, did not get one, but this last order I received one. Any rhyme or reason to this? Great products, and will be ordering water bottles now that I have a purifier installed. Hank
great bags! i love how small they are when folded back into the attached pouch. they hardly take up any space in my purse.
Love the "workhorse" bag. I keep one in my purse and one in my desk at work and they come in very handy when I'm shopping. (For grocery shopping I use large, canvas bags, but these are perfect for everyplace else.) I bring my lunch to work in one. They are the perfect "little something" gift to give to co-workers at holiday time (my co-workers loved them!)
Loved them! Gave them as gifts for Xmas, and kept two for myself.
I love these bags, and gave a set to a friend for Christmas. I am VERY happy that they now come in colors other than black, too! These bags are rugged, and since I walk to & from the grocery store, I love that they are MUCH easier on my fingers than plastic bags ever were! And since they fold up so complactly, it is easy to always keep at least one in my purse for unexpected stops at the convenience store or drugstore. Bravo!
I love these bags and have given them to everyone I know fro Christmas. Additonally, I often pop them out of my purse and give them (semi used) to friends and those who admire them in stores. I have used and given away $300 of them and am about to order more! Miriam Dow
Workhorse style 1500 is easy to carry and use. works well over the bag hooks in the stores. I don't have to wonder if the bag will split carrying a gallon of milk and other heavy items. They hold a lot and look good. Lee C. - Michigan
I like this bag because it is very light and folds into its own small (attached) pouch. I have several different types of reuseable grocery bags; this one gets used the most, because it is quite small when folded and thus always in my purse.
I love these bags. They are strong, and hardly take up any room in my purse, so I always have a couple with me for unplanned trips to the store, and more at home for planned trips. They are also very easy to get back into their own "pouch", so I always put them back to their compact origins when I am done. I gave a bunch to my parents for Christmas, too! Wonderful product.
I'm not new to reusable bags, but I never knew what to do with them until, or even if, I needed them. The Workhorse solved that problem.
I think they're great. I bought them as stocking stuffers for Christmas. I just hope they'll get used. I also wonder if they'll really fit back into that tiny bage they came in.
Excellent. I have been using this as a catch-all tote bag, not just for groceries. I need to work on remembering to bring it to the store each time I shop.
I went bagless in 2007. I've bought several products from Reuseablebags.com and carry them in my car and in my purse. I love the look on the cashier's face when I say, "I have my own bag." I bought the Acme-Workhorse Style 1500 as Christmas presents for my staff, and included a note about how plastic bags are clogging up the planet. They were all amazed at how such a large and strong bag could fit into the tiny attached pouch. Hopefully, I've created bagless converts!
I really like how the bag folds into itself and there isn't a separte holder for it - I keep one in my (small) purse at all times. It carries a lot of stuff and washes up nicely; the fun colored fabric seems very durable. Well received as Christmas gifts this year. I didn't keep enough of this one myself and need to order more!
I was so excited to get my ACME Bags™ - Workhorse Style 1500. I was a little nervous about pulling them out at Target and Kroger, but the stores were very accommodating and gracious. I initially ordered 4, and will eventually need to order 2-4 more for when I go grocery shopping every week. For the amount of work my 4 little bags have already done in the month I've had them, I consider them my best purchase of 2007!
The bags are a lovely texture, and seem spacious and strong. I used them to "wrap" gift cards, and the people I gave them to for Christmas were thrilled with them. Just wish I had ordered more for gifts and for myself!
I purchased several bags to give to my daughters as Christmas gifts. Cleveland daughter gets very favorable comments at her local grocery store about the bags. Expect lots of interest in Cleveland about Acme bags. Haven't heard about the Phoenix daughters experiences with the bags, I will keep you posted. Carried the bags to Switzerland for my youngest daughter. She greatly appreciated them and use them constantly.
I have a set of cotton string bags I use for large grocery trips, but I also have two of these that I keep on hand for quick, unplanned, trips. They take up so little space it’s not an issue for me to carry them with me everywhere, even though I have a very small pocketbook. They don’t cut into my hands like disposable plastic bags, and I like that I don’t turn myself into a walking advertisement for the stores. I use them almost daily, and have yet to encounter a problem with cashiers or baggers.
I have been using this bag much more than I anticipated. It's great - and it packs down so small!
Great looking, maximum volume and minimalist design. The bag folds into a tiny pouch that easily fits into your pocket.
Convenient, lightweight and strong. What more could you ask for?
The ACME Workhorse 1500 bags are absolutely what my friends and I need to help us "stay green." My brother gave these to me as a gift and, in turn, I have given them as gifts. Everyone comments on how wonderful it is to be able to fold them up in the attached pouch and place them in their purse or pockets. Sturdy, just the right size, and always handy for packing bought items - these are the greatest!
Love the bag!! It is the most useful of all the bags I have because it is always with me in my purse. I often forget to bring my other reusable bags into the store from the car, so I end up using this one all the time. It is incredible how much stuff I can fit in this bag, and how strong it is. Mostly, I love that it folds up neatly into its pouch.
i ordered 4 of these bags before the holidays. I've been using them for all my grocery shopping and most of my other shopping. If you don't want to take the time to fold them back into their little pouches, no worries. They are so thin and lightweight, they'll squish down to nothing and stow easily in your purse, pocket or car console. These bags are super-strong and are surprisingly comfortable to carry as well.
My husband bought me two Workhorse bags. I thought I really just wanted one, but they're so compact that I can leave them both in my purse and I've found that I've used them both frequently. I typically take canvas bags to the grocery store, but never wanted to take them to Bloomingdale's. But the Workhorse bag (black) is so understated that I'm happy to use it there as well. Now I never have to get a bag no matter where I'm shopping!
I found your website easy to use. The bags I ordered are exactly as I expected. I even gave one to my daughter to use when she shops while at school.
Just happened upon the site from the MSN review. Bought 10 of the long handle mini maxi's and Tiny Titans. Of all the stocking stuffers I gave, these were everyones favorite by far. I didn't want to give them all away so will have to order more. Some colors were out of stock, so thought I'd have to cancel the order. They offered to overnight the order at no extra charge. Perfect for students, strong enough for books and they come in cool colors. I think everyone should have a Tiny Titan ! So small yet extremely strong and you can clip it on your key ring. Excellent cause, excellent products and excellent customer service !
Very convenient for quick shopping trips and store easily in a purse or glove box. These bags hold much more than you think. I have had so many positive comments about the bags and the fun colors that are available!
I bought a couple of these bags a few years ago. They're great! Just this week though, I had a seam blow in one of them, I'm pretty bummed. They are strong, super convenient and the people at Whole Foods always wonder where I got them. Even with the blown seam, I'd recommend them.
I have wanted to switch to reusable bags for awhile. Aside from being environmentally friendly, the bags hold more weight than a normal plastic bag, and the handles don't cut into my hands when they're heavy!
Very portable, durable and functional! I especially like that they can be washed. I would highly reccommend these.
We are very pleased with our reusable bags. They are quite sturdy and hold plenty of groceries. I especially like that they fold up into tiny little bundles that fit in a pocket or purse easily.
The reusable bags are great. I got them for my daughter for Christmas. She uses them daily, not only for groceries, but all her carrying needs. The handy fold up pouch is so portable and light weight. I plan to give to my entire family for travel and daily use. Keep up the good work Reusable Bags.
This bag is great! I can bring it with me anywhere since it is small enough to fit in my pocket. But it is large enough to fit most of my groceries. And strong too! I'm getting more and telling all my friends about it.
I LOVE these bags. I was doubtful that they would really fit back into the little pouch, but they do! Strong and durable. I keep 2 of them in my briefcase to handle "overflow" stuff!
I love this bag! I always had a problem of remembering to bring my own bags. I don't like to carry plastic bags in my purse because it clutters your bag and gets in the way too. These bags are great though, if you don't use them, you can stuff them bag into the attached pockets and makes it easy to store. They are also very sturdy. Don't have to worry about double bagging heavy items because the bag is virtually indestructible. And if you get them dirty, just toss them in the washing machine. Awesome!
A great little bag! It's so convenient and fits nicely in a purse for easy, accessible usage.
Easy to transport, easy to use. A couple of modifications need to be made to the shopping routine (unpack the bags, remind the baggers that they can put more in these than the same size plastic ones, make sure all the bags go out with the groceries and don't get left on the check-out stand). Once that becomes habit, these will be just great. And I don't have to make the trip back to recycle the plastic bags. We usually came home with 16-18 plastic bags, but I bought 10 of these and, with the added one you threw in, it has worked out just right. Now I just have to keep track of them!
I am over the top with happiness, over these bags! Now I always have a couple in my purse, when I have a spur-of-the-moment shopping purchase to make. I just reach in my purse and pull out the little stuff sac and open up my silky lovely blue Acme bag! No more plastic sacks! They are super-convenient, tiny when stowed away, and more durable than plastic! Thank you many times over!
I LOVE these bags! I had reusable shopping bags before but they were so big and bulky I always forgot to take them with me. Now I keep these in my purse or pocket so I always have them handy! And the checkers and baggers at my grocery store are starting to get used to them, too. When I first started using reusable bags I actually had the experience of a bagger looking at them, putting them in a bag, and handing them back to me. Now since I can actually use these bags on a regular basis, the baggers actually know what to do with them!
I love these bags! I bought 4 and gave 2 away to friends. I am spreading the word and use these every time I go to the store. They are so compact I just keep them in my purse and when I get to the checkout line I pull them out and hand them to the clerk before they start bagging my groceries. This bag is perfect!
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.
When I first unfolded the bags, I thought I would have a lot of trouble putting them back into the little pouches. Don't bother trying to fold them up to restuff them--just poke the bag back into the pouch a little at a time. They are handy, seem to be very strong and well constructed. Now if you could just put a reminder function on them--something that would shout loudly, "Hey, take me into the store with you, ya dummy!! Don't leave me all alone in the car."
This is an incredibly useful and handy bag! It's absolutely perfect. It folds up nice and small so I can keep it in the bag I take everywhere and never have to worry about forgetting to bring a re-usable grocery bag with me or for those spontaneous shopping trips. Very roomy and durable too. I love it!!
These bags are great - large capacity and durable, and most importantly, small enough to fit in purse, glove compartmetn, or briefcase to be available for any spontaneous shopping trip.
I purchased several bags sometime last year, but was down to two because I kept giving away bags for others to try. So, I ordered more bags and just received them. The bags are so lightweight and fold up so compactly that it's easy to always have 3 or 4 on me so that I'm never without my own bags. The folks at the grocery store are always surprised at how much the bags can hold. They're the same size as the bags offered by the store, but hold oh-so much more! I do love these bags and think they're a wonderful product and a great value for the money, but I would love to see these offered in additional colors - for example, green or purple.
these bags are really great, I already got compliments on them at my local grocery store. It's amazing how much they hold, and how small they store. I'm very happy with this product, and reusablebags.com.
I couldn't wait to receive my Workhorse Style 1500 ACME Bags™ - and it didn't disappoint me!!! I went to the grocery store yesterday, with my new 10 reusable bags, and I felt such a sense of pride that I was actually helping the environment! We're a large family, and our grocery bag usage is unbelievable. These bags are strong, sturdy, compact, and easy to store in my car! I love them so much that I'm going to order 8 more!!!! Thank you reusablebags.com! A quality product!
I LOVE this product! Its so tiny to pit in my purse I use it everyday! I'm going to buy one for all my girlfriends! A+!
I am very pleased with my bag. I do wish the casing was a bit bigger. It looked wonderful when I recieved, but when re-packaging it, it wasn't quick, which it should be. I purchased a bag a little larger for $1.00 and it is fine.
I couldn't be more happy to NEVER use another plastic bag from the grocery store!!! Thanks so much for your great products. Several people have asked me about my bags and I have sent them to your website! Keep up the great work. Amanda Johnson
After you get over the strange looks from the cashiers, I really think these bags are great. They are very tough, and it makes me realize how much I was wasting before I got them.
I bought 2 of these bags awhile ago and kept one for myself and gave one to a friend. I highly recommend them! They are great because you can fold them back into the little pouch (which is attached) and hang them wherever. I think that my husband is going to start using it as his lunch bag!
This is my second purchase of ACME bags. This time they were for gifts for my adult children. As usual, they are of excellent quality. I unfortunately overloaded a previous one and part of a top edging seam tore open, but that was my fault and it was easily sewn back securely. They are wonderful to keep stashed in the glove box of the car and in my purse for those unexpected purchases.
I am very happy with my product purchase. They are durable and hold a lot of groceries. I can even get a 12-pack of bottled water in one sack. It is nice, too, that they are washable and come out looking new. I also like the color choices; I chose cranberry and it looks very nice. I carry one in my car in case I stop somewhere and need a sack for my shopping. My local grocery store even takes $.03 off my total for each sack I use which I'm sure will add up over time and save me from taking the regular sacks back to the store's recycling bin. Thank you so much and I'd highly recommend this product.
They are small so we packed them into car glove compartments or backpacks so we would have a bag handy when we needed one. The biggest problem is remembering to bring them along into the store.
This is my second order. Loved the first so much, I gave it away and bought 4 more for me. Even tho I use a small purse there's always room for this one & I'm always prepared. Have cut way back on the plastic bags!
Very handy, very durable and make-me-feel-good product. Excellent.
These bags are great. They hold a ton of stuff and are really strong. The cashier at the grocery asked me if they are stronger than they look and I said absolutely, fill it up. Since I bought these I have not used a plastic or paper bag from the store. A great way to do my part in helping the environment. Love them.
These are great. They hold a lot more than I would have thought and I can stuff them in my purse or in a larger tote bag. They are washable and dry in minutes. Now I need one in every color to coordinate with my wardrobe.
SO VERY, VERY PLEASED W/ THE "WORK HORSE BAGS" USING THEM GIVES ME A GOOD FEELING!!!!! THE REUSE PLASTIC BAGS ARE WONDERFUL--DO WISH THEY CAME W/ SOME SORT OF CLOSER----
These are great. Strong and super compact. I haven't owned or used re-usable bags before, so I was a little self conscious the first day, but it's all good now... no dirty looks from the checkout peeps.
I just got around to using my acme bags and I love them! At first, I wasn't sure how much stuff they would hold, so was a bit weary of trying them. I finally used them for a big grocery shopping day and everything fit perfectly and was easy to carry home. Who don't people use these more? Love them!
The Workhorse Style 1500, while made of a petroleum product (nylon), I expect will get used much more than some other shopping bags that I have. It folds up into such a small package and is easy to slip into a pocket or purse. I hesitate to use some of the other bags I have because of their 'company logo' so they don't get used as often. My only complaint is that it takes me a while to fold it back into the small package. Much like folding a highway map I suspect it just takes practice. Also, I discovered that my grocery store gives me a nickel for each bag of my own that I use in place of their paper bag. While that is not a lot of money, I would expect that to pay for the bag after a while. I rate this product a 'great buy'.
I received one bag as a gift for Christmas, then came to this website almost immediately to order more. These bags are so small and light, I keep them directly in my purse (unlike the other cloth bags that I kept forgetting in the trunk of my car). They hold as much as a plastic grocery bag and are very sturdy. I love that the little pocket they stuff into is attached directly to the bag, so I don't have to worry about losing it. I love that I don't have to fold the bag, just stuff it back into that pocket. My two wishes for product line extensions would be these: 1) a similarly lightweight and stuffable bag that has longer handles; and 2) better color selection. (The "orange" that I ordered turned out to be Texas-longhorn/peanutbutter-poop brown.)
We love our Workhorse reusable shopping bags. We used them for the first time last week with a large cart full of items & only needed 4 bags since they hold so much (& it was mostly canned & glass jar goods!!!) I was so happy, since the store we were at usually double-bags every bag even when you ask them not to. No more guilt! Thank You!
I love this bag. I love that it's compact - I can keep it in my backpack and it doesn't take up any space. Then, I open up the bag at the grocery store and fill in my groceries. I also like that the bag is so strong - I've carried a lot of groceries in it.
I carry a VERY small purse. This bag fits in it like a dream. It also goes in the front pocket of my jeans. It easily refolds after use and goes back into its attached cover. When in use it carries plenty. I like it so much that I am ordering several for friends.
These bags are fantastic. I must admit as a guy I hated the idea of carrying traditional bulky bags around and these are ideal. I carry them all of the time.
The bag is great - small enough to carry around in your purse or in a coat pocket - but large enough to carry a little more than a plastic bag from the store. I like the fact that the storage bag it folds up into is attached and therefore never lost. It definitely makes it easier to not use plastic bags!
They're excellent. The little pouch they come it is even smaller than I thought it would be (maybe 3 inches x 2 inches and about 1 1/2 inches thick). Also, they're very easy to pack back into the pouch. I used them at two grocery stores today as well as at Home Depot.
This little folded bag (when in my purse) is so convenient. Many times I have used it when I did not have any of my other bags. It is strong, attractive, light weight and accessible. Would buy more and recommend to my friends.
We love these bags--they slide easily into a pocket, hold an extraordinary amount, and shrink back into their tiny envelopes without difficulty. Of ten bags we've had, one has frayed on the bottom of the envelope, but a repair has returned it to its previous usefulness.
Great product! I keep them in my car trunk so I have them whenever I go to the grocery store. They are very strong and hold a lot more than a typical plastic grocery bag which is great.
These bags are strong and useful - not as big as I expected but good none the less.
I have attempted to use several different reusable bags that I have purchased at the grocery store over the past couple of years. These bags were either unattractive, or too large to carry with me all the time. So of course those bags were not used. The Workhorse bag solved these problems. The proof is in the pudding. I have used the Workhorse bags since I have purchased them. All I can say is it is a perfect solution to something I have been trying to solve for sometime. I actually feel great about so easily doing something that helps reduce waste. That is all to your credit. Kudos to the designer for their cleverness.
Lightweight, easy to remember (because one is always in my coat pocket) and really durable. We give them as gifts all the time.
They're great! Handy, easy to carry, and the baggers are fascinated by them!
I bought the Acme Bag and loved it so much. I have a Hair Salon and showed it to customers and they wanted them and then came back saying their friends wanted them. They are wonderful for shopping and great to be free of plastic!! Being compact and light, you always have one in your purse ready for use. Thanks again for a great product and problem solver.
Love it! So convenient- I have one in my purse all the time and am thinking of buying everyone I know one just to show them how convenient and easy it is to be green!
This is the second order of these bags - we love 'em. We especially like the fact that they are comfortable to carry. Sometimes we walk to the store and the plastic bags would be painful to carry after a few blocks, not so with these bags as they have a wide handle.
Great shopping bag for guys...esp guys who aren't used to being environmentally aware, in other words great for introducing guys to the idea of taking bags to the store.
I love this bag! I keep forgetting my canvas bags in the car or at home. This one is small and lightweight so I keep it in my purse all the time and always have it when I'm shopping.
I love the bags, they hold alot and the compactness of them is great. I do have one suggestion. When I remove the bag from its attached bag, it is difficult for me to find the handles. The bags I have are black and this may not be a problem with other colors. If the handles had a marking on them it would help alot.
I really, really like the Acme Workhorse bags. I bought 4 and carry them in my car, my computer bag and purse all the time. The gusset at the bottom makes it easier to fill up with bulky items and not damage more delicate items. I like that it doesn't have a large logo printed on them, just a discreet tag on the side. Heading to London and Copenhagen in a few weeks and the Acme workhorse bags are coming with me. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota and I find that it is easier to use these bags in larger supermarkets and coop than in small ethnic stores. They always look at me funny when I say I have my own bag but it's getting easier - let's all use these bags more!
The bags are excellent. Roomy and well constructed all around. Especially handy is the pocket the bags folds into. A number of cashiers have commented favorably on the bags and I'm really glad I'm no longer using plastic bags.
I love how lightweight and small the bags fold up to be. I carry a small purse, but can still keep one in my purse for errand shopping. I took another person's advice and clipped the others on a carabiner to easily take into the grocery store for my weekly trip.
I really like the fact that the bags are large enough to handle cereal boxes, etc. and still be lightweight enough to carry it when full. It is great also that they fold up to such a small size.
I love my acme bags! They work well with the grocery store's bag carousel, and they are so compact when I need them to be. Additionally, I love having them in cranberry, so that it's a great statement to everyone that they don't need plastic!
Great bag. Compact, lightweight, and tough. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a shopping bag that carries as much or more than a traditional plastic shopping bag.
The ACME bag, Workhorse style 1500 is perfect. I fit 8 (!) of these bags in my purse at a time and pull them out at the grocery store (to everyone's amazement!). They are stronger than ANY plastic bag at the market. This bag is perfect for the market or whatever needs carrying. Plus, it just feels good not to have those plastic bags hanging around all of the time...
These bags are wonderful! Fold small enough that I carry 4 in my purse all the time. Strong and roomy - the baggers pack them full (unlike plastic where they sometimes only put in a few items). Handles are wide enough that they don't cut into your hands with a heavy load. I was a little embarrassed at first to unfold them in the check out. But now I'm so used to it, I actually got a little cranky with the bagger when he wasn't paying attention and just grabbed my bags and threw them into a plastic bag! Quick and easy to refold back into their attached pouches. Highly recommended!
LOVE them! That they fold up and self contain and can be dropped in to my purse means I will not again have that "DUH" moment in the market when I realize I left the shopping bags in the car or on the kitchen counter.
These bags are exactly as wonderful as described. They're so small when stuffed into their attached carrying pouch, and I now carry one in my purse at all times. There is a bit of a knack to stuffing them back in there quickly, but it's easily mastered with a few seconds of practice. When the bags are open for use, they really are enormous and strong enough to handle just about anything you put in them. I haven't taken a bag at checkout for weeks, and with these bags I think it's possible I won't need to ever again. Smiling ear to ear!
I'd been looking for a small, light-weight bag to keep in my purse for those last-minute errands. This met my needs perfectly. This bag is strong, light and compact. The description says it will hold up to 25 pounds, but I suspect I've gone closer to 30 a couple of times without causing damage. I have recommended it — and your site — to many of my friends.
Just recently purchased four of the ACME workhorse bags for grocery shopping. They are extremely portable and light weight. I keep them in the side panel in my car and throw them in a jacket pocket when I shop. So far I have found them to be very durable and can easily hold more than a plastic shopping bag can. Highly recommend them to for anyone who values efficient shopping and hates plastic!
This is a wonderful bag. It fits easily into a pocket or purse. I carry three of them with me to the farmer's market. They hold a lot of produce and can handle the weight. I found them so useful that I just bought a bunch of them to use as stocking stuffers next Christmas!
very nice product, very well made, easy to store. the ladies check me out when i carry them out of the store, too:)
I regularly used disposable plastic shopping bags. I came to this website to order a water bottle, and this reusable shopping bag came as a free promotion. What a great thing--I'm hooked! It's small and light enough that I take it in my purse where ever I go and say "no thanks" when I'm offerred a bag--at the grocery store, corner store, mall--where ever! The right size for just about anything. I like to travel and this bag will be my new best friend!
Great so far. I keep one in my purse and take the rest to the grocery store. People at the grocery store still have a tough time w/ them, and tend to overload them, but I think they'll get used to them.
The only regret I have is that I only ordered 2! They hold so much that I have to tell the baggers to put more in! GREAT PRODUCT. I'll be ordering 2 more!!!
I really like these bags, and I don't leave the house without a pair of them tucked in my purse or pocket. They are so light and small, they're no inconvenience at all. When they're deployed to carry home the day's purchases, they're strong and capacious. When they're emptied, it's a snap to package them up again in their tiny envelopes. What a neat product! I'm buying some extras for my friends.
This was my second order of this product as I thought I had lost one of my original ones. I got a different color this time. My "lost" bag was found my an alert clerk at the grocery store who thought it was mine but only after I had ordered some more. I like the light weight feel of them and they wash up very nice. I've had compliments about them and ask where I got them. Keep up the good work.
These are great bags and mimic the size of plastic grocery bags. I get many comments from baggers at the store that they really like these bags as well.
Durable and attractive bags. I am going to purchase two more soon.
I ordered 2 of these bags and because they are so compact they fit nicely in my purse. I use them when I make a small grocery trip or go to the thrift. They also come in handy with the kids on those occassions you never think you would need a bag and don't have enough hands. Love them!
I love these bags! I keep it in my purse and no longer need to have all those ucky plastic bags. I plan to get them for friends!
bags work great. very easy to carry and hold a lot of items.
This is a great bag! I keep it in my purse for whenever I forget to take my string bags with me on a quick trip to the drugstore, etc.
I purchased 2 Workhorse Style 1500 bags. They are small and convient and I keep them in my car. I found they have been durable and easy to get back in the little attached holding pouch. I've found these bags to be very usefull and I really like that they fit in the regular bag holder at the market. My only downfall would be the price. I have to be honest and say I've found simular very durable bags at my local market for 1/5 the price. I own a few of those too and have no bad remarks for those either. I just wanted to stop using plastic bags and do my part to help stop global warming!
This bag is incredible. I have bought the store reusable bags before but often hit the store on the way home from work. I commute on the bus so store bought bags were too bulky to keep in my backpack. These bags are so small and lightweight. I was a little worried that they wouldn't hold a lot but was proved wrong on my trip to the grocery store this morning. I was amazed at the amount of groceries that I was able to fit in the bag. I got two boxes of cheerios, a 2 lb. bag of shredded cheese, a package of turkey sausage, 2 boxes of granola bars, a carton of eggs, and a loaf of bread. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a small but strong bag for using at the grocery store, farmers market, or any of other shopping trip.
When I remember to take my Acme workhorse bags with me (and it's a habit you have to develop), someone always asks me about them--do I like them, where did I get them, how long does it take to get an order. So, they are noticed, and I think people are becoming aware of their duty to save our resources.
Haven't actually used it yet, but we love how small we can make it and it seems pretty durable!
Love it. Use it daily. Easy to store in purse and pull out for last minute gas store stops or shopping mall purchases. Crystal-Boise, Idaho
I love this little black bag. I use it all the time to carry everything and anything.
