EarthTotes made from recycled PET (50% recycled content). Recycled PET is a durable, eco-friendly fabric made from post consumer recycled plastic bottles containers. Using recycled PET is smart - it cuts down on waste and minimizes damage to the environment by conserving oil, energy and non-renewable resources. In the U.S. alone over 45 billion plastic containers end up in landfills in 2006. Choosing products made from recycled PET promotes a more sustainable path for plastic.

Cool Fact
The fabric used to produce each Recycled PET EarthTote reclaims about 5 recycled plastic bottles/containers!

Produce bags made from certified organic cotton.

These bags can help you eliminate thousands of paper and plastic bags over their lifetimes. Our wide range of reusable bags are built to last, which saves both money and natural resources. Our lightweight, organic-cotton muslin bags offer a smart way to cut down on another major source of plastic bag waste - plastic produce bags. Plus, they’re grown without harsh chemicals.

Just a note: I purchased workhorse bags over 3 years ago because I was looking for compact bags that I could carry in my purse. I loved the bags so much I bought them to give as gifts for Christmas that year along with some other "green" items. Any time I make an unplanned trip to the store, I don't worry about forgetting my bags. I also use these produce bags and have gotten several comments on both.
