Bags Made from Recycled Materials: New Hues for Popular Bag!

Bags made from recycled materialsBags made from recycled materials have always been an important mainstay in our reusable bag lineup. It feels good to know you’re using a product that was created from the waste from another. As such, we offer more than a dozen bags made from recycled materials at Bulletin Bag [.com]!

We’ve all seen a laminated bag that proudly proclaims how it was a plastic bottle in a past life. Did you know, however, that there are other options for bags made from recycled materials besides that stuff from recycled drink bottles? We offer reusable bags made from recycled cotton, recycled polyester, and recycled PET!  Continue reading

ChicoBag Produce Bags: Product Review

GR-CHBPROD-AllSuzette is very excited that we are now offering ChicoBag produce bags!

After testing a multitude of options, the ChicoBag produce bags are by far the best quality we’ve seen. The main feature that makes the ChicoBag produce bags superior is the durability of the drawstring closure. The drawstring seam on other mesh produce bags we’ve tested started to come apart after a few uses. However, Suzette has been using her ChicoBag produce bags for 1-2 YEARS (with weekly use and regular washing), and they still look as good as new!

The smaller ChicoBag Mini Mesh Produce Bag can fit about 4-5 apples, a large handful of green beans, a bundle of broccoli, or other smaller items.

The larger ChicoBag Produce Stand (available now but not yet on our site) is perfect for larger items like bananas. Suzette likes to use this bag to group together ‘loose’ produce, like peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, apples in one larger bag. When checking out, she keeps the bag out for the end, removes the items so the cashier can ring them in separately, then puts them back inside the bag as they are finished.

There are other styles of ChicoBag produce bags, but we are currently only offering the styles that are mesh on one side and solid (rePETE) on the other side. We feel that the mesh is preferable to the solid since the cashier can easily see the contents of the bag, making it easier  at check out.

Almost every time Suzette uses these bags the cashiers and baggers compliment her on them and ask where she got them. While the trend hasn’t completely caught on with most mainstream consumers, we believe this product category will grow immensely in the coming years.

Once you’ve kicked the plastic bag habit at the check out line, you start to notice how many plastic bags you are still using in the produce department. Using high quality reusable produce bags can easily eliminate these single use plastic bags. With a little advanced planning you can quickly get in the habit of bringing your own produce bags to the store as well! As someone who is passionate about reducing plastic wherever possible, we think these produce bags are fantastic!

Folding Grocery Bags: Bulletin Bag Staff Review

04d410be928ad0c044ae2ed380ab19a4For these reviews, we pick two of our Bulletin Bag reusable bags, have our staff members put them through the wringer, and comment on the outcomes here (and encourage our clients to do the same!). This week, we’ve chosen two inexpensive, nylon folding grocery bags: Slim Zip Grocery Bag and Clip and Go Shopper.

We love nylon fold up grocery bags because they are strong, durable, and easy to store. Often times, folding bags can be over a client’s budget, but these two bags are surprisingly affordable. Nylon folding bags should be hand washed in warm soapy water and hung to dry—both inside out and right side out–to ensure all the moisture is gone on the inside.
