Flaunt It! Monday is back! If you’re still in holiday mode and miss out then us working folks can’t give you anymore sympathy!
Today’s review is this great reusable shopping bag from The Green Apple. I had the opportunity to use this bag Saturday for my big monthly shopping. I have about half a dozen or more of the $1 bags you can pick up from various grocery stores and this one got added to the bunch. The fact that I remembered them is amazing in itself! My bagger at checkout showed no mercy on these bags either, so it was really put to the test. More on my thoughts in a bit.
First let me tell give you some background on the Green Apple Bag (from the site):
The Green Apple Bag is a high quality bag utilizing Woven RPET, a durable eco-friendly material made of post consumer recycled plastic bottles. Instead of ending up in landfills, these bottles can be used for a sturdy material which will be able to be used for years to come by you and your family.
Woven RPET material is one of the highest quality fabrics found on the market today. This material gives a unique quality and caliber over many bags sold worldwide. We are proud to be able to provide a healthy, yet classy, solution for the environment. We think you will agree.
I do agree! I was amazed how soft the material is! This was the first product upcycled from plastic I have had the opportunity to use and I was impressed. When I first got the bag I had my friends and family check the bag out and guess what it was made with. Since they know how I am always reviewing all these green products they gave a shot with answers like hemp or organic cotton. Their eyes popped when I told them soda bottles!
As I mentioned, I had a bagger this weekend that showed no mercy. He stuffed the bags overfull. Since this bag is much taller (17” tall x 13” wide x 6.5” deep & 25” long handles) then the others, it took the worst of his abuse. The bags were insanely heavy, and I did hold a few of my dollar bags on the bottom for fear of busting them. However, I carried the Green Apple Bag on my shoulder and it passed the test. The material is great and the quality is top notch, with an embroidered logo and front pouch for shopping list, keys or any other small items you may want to use it for.
