The Magic Of The Internet

Mit in drinnen, Sarah and I are working on a project with Style412 (more on that another time) and sales of one of our most practical totes- The Reusable Lightweight Packable Grocery Carry-All Recycled Shirts Bag Tote, Roll- up, Great for Produce, Versatile Packing start flowing into our inbox.

It’s crazy for us- three at once- then two more- then two to send as gifts along with our big schmatta and looking at our ETSY site as I write- more than 20 people have the Reusable Tote in their carts. How did this happen???

A friend let us in on the secret: the tote was featured on the Claire & Erica A Thing or Two Newsletter as one of Claire’s recommendations: Finding room in my heart and my home for another tote—one so good it makes me wish we still had a store so we could sell it ourselves. Here it is:

Imagine a world with fewer plastic bags and take-out cartons. Like all our bags, the shirts tote has endless uses, but it was inspired by our love of food shopping mixed with our desire to create less waste.

A lightweight packable carry all bag – but cooler and more versatile than all those weird nylon or polyester bags. Use it to bag produce at the grocery store, or have it rolled up in your purse for an impromptu shop, or use it to help organize packing as a bag within a bag / suitcase.

Made from 100% recycled shirting. Cleverly constructed using recycled shirt seams as ties to roll the bag up for take away.

Personalization option: send us your own shirts from which we can make your bags or request colors!

Made in Pittsburgh upon order. All items are one-of-a-kind, unique, and vary. The photos shown here are just examples.
