In the past, I've used paper bags/shopper totes to recycle my junk mail,
food boxes indoors and in one place. Now, I don't have to. Much easier
to use as I don't always have paper bags on hand. They're slightly bigger
than a Trader Joe's size paper bag and can be cleaned quite easily.
However, I discovered another purpose this morning. I have a bag half full of paper for shredding and recycling sitting the living room and my young kitten has decided it's the best toy ever! He pounced into the bag from across the room and spent the next 20 minutes happily "killing" the bag and chewing on it. And then about an hour later, he did it again. Even with all of that, the bag has survived for future recycling projects...and most likely to be "killed" again. There are a few teeth marks on the edge and on the handles, but no holes or serious damage. :o)
(The only negative, in my opinion, is the aesthetics. I was hoping to purchase something more neutral as they are sitting with in view of my living and dining room. But if you don't mind the color, I would say they are perfect.)
I say almost completely waterproof because after 5 years there's a little staining at the bottom from me rinsing it, and while I've never tested it I think if you filled it with water to the brim and tried to move it around it would probably leak at the seems. But who's going to be using these that way?
Still fantastic after 5 years, easy to clean, easily holds the weight being full of glass bottles, you really can't ask for more.
The bags are stiff enough that they remain standing on their own, but I added a piece of stiff cardboard to the bottom of each, just to help them keep their shape and sit flat.
The material is glossy enough to make them easy to wipe clean.
All in all I'm very happy with them.
Update: I've had these now for close to 6 years and they're holding up well. The stitching in one of the handles was unraveling and I was worried the handle might eventually pull off the bag, so I re-sewed it - just a few stitches with some heavy duty thread. After many trips to my local recycling facility with these bags it didn't surprise me that there'd be a bit of mending required after a few years. They've also held up to frequent sponge baths - no separating of the materials or fading of colors.
Initially these seemed a little expensive for bags, but since I keep them in the kitchen where they're visible all the time I wanted something brightly colored and that looked a little better than just a grocery bag. When I think of the cost as just a couple dollars over each of the years they've lasted so far I think they're well worth it.

I love these bags and like that they stand up by themselves. The first day they folded in a bit like any bag that folds, but after that they stay open just fine. Read morePublished 6 months ago by J. Lewis
