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.

    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.
