I am in love with the super-juicy colors and simple functionality of the Baggu line of re-usable shopping totes. Yummy reds, bouyant blues.... rip-stop nylon in a deliciously eco-forward form makes me want to go out and find a Farmer's Market just so I can load up one of these babies with fresh veggies and flowers... [ they hold up to 25lbs each and fold into a neat 5" x 5" pouch ]
I learned from their website that Baggu is a mother-daughter team of designers who each need a re-usable bag to satisfy their needs, from urbanite daughter to suburbanite mom. Their creation is easy to love and therefore easy to use - and all good for the environment.
In their own words, " We are working to replace our old friends, the paper & plastic bags, with something that does their job without creating needless waste or harming the environment. Using one Baggu for one year replaces 300 to 700 disposable bags...... The average family brings home 1,000 bags every year. Most of those bags end up in land fills. That really adds up - 100 billion plastic bags are sent to landfill in the US each year. "
"Changing our own shopping habits is one small thing we can do to make a difference. We hope you feel good every time you use your BAGGU. "
