Our earth has become increasingly littered with plastics causing irreversible damage. The good news is that as a whole we are becoming more environmentally aware and responsible. However plastic usage from single use grocery bags and produce bags still remains at an unacceptable level. Switching to eco friendly reusable bags is an easy step you can make towards reducing plastics in our landfills and oceans. It’s only a matter of time before you won’t be able to buy or use plastic bags. It’s time to take a step in the right direction and switch to sustainably made reusable bags now.
If you’re looking to purchase reusable grocery or produce bags but are unsure of which ones to get, we’ve listed the benefits that make The Market Bags the best reusable grocery bags you can buy.
MADE IN CANADA
Yes, proudly made in Canada! We believe in using ethical labour for the creation of our goods and paying a fair wage that supports local workers and their families. The Market Bags is one of the very few reusable bag companies that doesn’t outsource their production overseas.
MADE FROM SUSTAINABLE FABRICS
Most reusable grocery bags (not ours) are made of nylon, polyester, plastics, or other synthetic materials. These materials are not biodegradable and therefore can’t be recycled. The production of these synthetic bags creates a lot of pollution that goes into the atmosphere.
Not all bags are created equal.
At The Market Bags we use only sustainable and eco friendly textiles such as organic cottons and upcycled fabrics. We also ensure we use fabric suppliers that operate ethically and with environmentally responsible practices. Eventually when these sustainable materials wear out they will degrade naturally.
Our environmentally friendly bags are so cute that you'll actually look forward to bringing them into the grocery store with you…. Or farmers market…. Or downtown. You’ll actually want to bring them everywhere, because not only are they stylish but they are also extremely functional. It’s time to get trendy.
After making thousands of bags we have yet to hear of a bag breaking. We’ve even put our kid in our grocery tote bags and swung them around for fun rides. They enjoy this so much!
We could tell you that you could load up all the goodies you can find at the farmers market into a single grocery tote bag and still have extra room. Or we could tell you that you could put a 4 month supply of oat milk into a grocery tote bag. However it might be simpler to say…. did we mention that our kid fits in our tote bags? Because yeah, they do!
While the obvious use for a reusable grocery bag is to carry your groceries, these tote bags are much more versatile than that. They can be used as a shopping bag at your favorite retail stores, a gym bag, an overnight bag while on a trip out of town, or for your gear on a visit to the lake or ski hill. Regardless of where you’re at or what you’re doing, our tote bags will carry all your items and will look great doing so.
