Q: You have different sizes available—why are they all the same price?
A: We strive to use every part of the reclaimed fabrics we find. To minimize waste, the difference between the bag sizes are mere inches and we have found that these small changes affect the overall volume of the bag. However, every bag is created individually by hand in our Seattle, WA studio and each one takes the same amount of time and effort to create no matter what the final size.

Q: Why should I buy your bags when I can buy a bag at my local grocery store for .99 cents?
A: We highly encourage the use of reusable bags whenever possible! If you find your local store’s bags to be convenient to use, then by all means—please do so! We just think our Tote2Go! tote bags are easy to use, portable and a LOT cuter! However, our overall goal is to encourage people to reduce, reuse and recycle whenever and however they can!

FYI: The bags available at most grocery stores are made of non-woven polypropylene (a plastic) and, while it is #5 recyclable and has a lifespan of about 2-3 years, it is still a plastic and if it hits a landfill, will take along time (450 years?) to degrade. Other reusable grocery bag choices out there are made of nylon—another non-organic material that will take countless centuries to degrade (if at all!). These choices only delay the inevitable problem of too much waste by 5 to 10 years!

Our choice is to use reclaimed 100% cotton fabrics as much as possible. In our research, cotton takes about 5 months to 1 year to degrade once discarded. This is why we love using cast-off fabrics and encourage our users to reuse their Tote2Go! fabric bags later on as well in craft projects, quilts, smaller pouches and bags – anything to extend the usefulness of the fabric itself!
