Nused shopping bag

Department: Reuse

The latest reusable shopping bag to hit Target is made from recycled plastic shopping bags



Very cool design. At $5.99, they are a little more expensive than the red tote bags sold (it appears) in most stores across the country, but hey - they may be a nice memento to show your grandkids someday when plastic bags no longer exist!

  • but there was some weird promotion - buy a newsweek, stuff all your old target bags into the cover, send it back to them, and get a "free" bag. sounds like a lot of work...

  • I already have a "fleet" of the red totes in various sizes for my grocery shopping. I'll have to try this one out!:-)

  • This is great! I'm actually really apathetic about the whole "green" movement. I just don't like having all those grocery bags at my house, so I've been reusing them for that purpose alone.

  • Not really a lot of work to stuff the bags into the Newsweek cover and actually kind of fun. http://calluna.wordpress.com/2008/04/09/target-retote/

    Of course, make sure and recycle the rest of the Newsweek magazine when you're done.

  • Way too expensive. Whole Foods sells a comparable bag--also made from recycled plastic--for 99 cents.

  • Many grocery bags nowadays ARE biodegradable, although they look like plastic. Here's a nifty way to convert these grocery bags into trash bags. It's easy to do, convenient to use, and earth-friendly.
