CLEVER FIND ~ Esse Carryall Tote for Reusable Bags
By Anne-Marie Kovacs, Chief Wife
Open the car trunk of my car and you will find a dizzying assortment of disparate reusable bags floating about. Some more reusable than others. No two are the same size or even texture. For a supposedly stylish and organized person like me, this is just plain embarrassing.
Cue in the Esse Reusable Bags company. Love their motto: “Making a difference just got a little easier”. And I would add “organized”. That’s especially true with their Carryall Tote, this item being the very subject of this post.
The Carryall Tote is more like a shopping supply system that eliminates the need for any disposable bags, especially for grocery shopping excursions. We’re all trying to become more green. This system makes it easy. It includes:
- The organizer tote itself, which comes in 3 or 4 pockets. Get the 4 pockets if you like to carry only one bag when shopping as the 4th pocket can easily hold your debit card/cash, coupons and keys.
- 3 reusable grocery shopping bags. The bags come in plain black, with NO advertising on them. The sturdy construction allows each bag to carry up to 40 lbs. They are made with a material that contains 40% recycled PET (plastic bottles). Machine washable.
- 2 reusable produce bags. They are made of lightweight, see-through mesh. You can rinse the product right through the bag. Machine washable.
- 1 everyday market bag. You save two plastic bags each time you use it (I keep one in my handbag at all times and pull it out for all the little shopping errands). It’s made from 100% recycled PET and carries up to 20 lbs. Machine washable.
