The CYMA reusable grocery totes are a great product at a tremendous price. You can buy them through Amazon. These grocery totes have some wonderful features for shoppers trying to cut down on unnecessary waste. They include bottle holders in two of the corners as well as a solid bottom.
The CYMA reusable shopping bags come in packs of 4 and cost less than $10. Each bag costs only $2.50 before shipping!
These strong bags can carry just about anything you can stuff into them. The manufacturers put in two corner pockets for securing 2-liter drink bottles in the shopping totes. This keeps the soft drinks from falling over onto the hamburger buns during transport. Besides drinks, these pockets can hold juice and milk containers. The bottle pockets fold out of the way and into the corners when not in use.
Reusable shopping bags are often "floppy" and won't stay in place. However, these bags by CYMA have a hard bottom that swings out of the way when you need to fold the bags. With the bags open, the stiff bottom helps them stand in place. This makes loading the reusable shopping bags easier than most grocery totes. The solid bottom also helps the bags stay in place when you place them in the trunk of your car. Because the groceries have more structure holding them in place, they don't fall over as easily. You no longer have to repack your groceries every time you get home from a shopping trip.
The CYMA reusable shopping bags are made of a lightweight polypropylene material and hold about twice as much as a regular plastic bag. Sometimes it seems that the grocery store clerks try to see how few items they can stick into the smaller plastic bags. This creates even more waste than necessary. With these reusable grocery totes from CYMA, the store attendant will pack your bags fuller which will result in fewer bags.
You can buy these reusable shopping bags at Amazon for $9.95, which is a great price for 4 bags. With the purchase of these bags the seller throws in a random free item. Some people have gotten an extra CYMA shopping bag or a thermo hot/cold bag that will keep items cold for several hours in a hot car. They claim to have the free gift available for a limited time, but they have been doing the promotion for several months.
These bags are not canvas shopping bags, but they are quite sturdy. Besides the CYMA bags, Amazon has plenty of other reusable shopping bags available.
You may not have an interest in environmental consciousness, but having good reusable shopping bags available is a smart choice. Some grocery stores give a small discount if you bring your own bags. Other stores have special Eco-friendly lines. These lines only permit shoppers through them who bring their own bags. On busy days at the grocery store you might find yourself becoming especially green for an opportunity to use these less busy checkout lines.
