Keeping a number reusable eco tote bags to hand is one of the best ways to reduce the amount of plastic bags we use for our daily shopping. Whether you keep yours in the car or folded in your handbag you’ll soon be able to say no to the plastic bag offered at the checkout. Such a simple change can save thousands of plastic bags ending up in landfill – if you are really keen consider going plastic free?

A hard wearing natural jute supermarket shopper is strong enough for the heaviest groceries but still stylish enough to use as an all-round carry tote bag. Cotton promotional bags are a compact and economical bag option whilst the heavier grade cotton canvas promotional bags can handle some rough usage. If you need more space then a tote bag with a gusset is the way to go – available from Ecobagsnz as a lightweight cotton tote bag with gusset or the heavier grade canvas tote bag with gusset.
We have a great selection of environmentally friendly reusable bags including a number of Fairtrade certified calico cotton eco tote bags.

Amongst the eco tote bags you may also find some cotton backpacks, cotton messenger bags for carrying light items and small drawstring jute and cotton bags for use around the home – perhaps it’s time to organise your crafts or sewing box?
