I found this wonderful Canadian company with some really great bags for shopping at wonderful prices! Can't beat that :) Everyone is trying to cut down on plastic bags and take reusable ones shopping, but sometimes it's hard to find ones that look great, work great and are affordable. hotSACKS has it all!
The company was conceived in Victoria B.C. by Diana Nethercott, a professional photographer with an eye for design and a desire to help wean people off plastic. Following many prototypes cut and sewn at the kitchen table, the result was a bag that marries fashion with creative design.
"I strived to create a functional bag that also looks good," says Diana. "I had little interest in carrying the bags offered by big retailers that lacked style and turned me into a walking billboard."
Diana worked hard to find a green-certified manufacturer. As a result, hotSACKS have earned the right to use the EcoLogo, North America's most widely recognized and respected certification of environmental leadership. The EcoLogo assures the buyer that hotSACKS are an environmentally preferable - or green - product.
"In the last 10 years, I have personally saved about 5,000 disposable bags by using my own bags," says Diana. "Imagine if we all used re-usable bags. Let’s get carried away helping the environment!"
There are two different types of bags at hotSacks. If you are a series shopper you might like to get the Ultimate Bag Set. This 5 bag set that includes: Four larger Essential hotSACKS bags (L29 cms x W21.5 cms x H34 cms) that fit neatly inside a smaller Everyday hotSACKS carry bag (L36 cms x W10 cms x H30.5 cms). The set is on sale right now for $19.99 Canadian (+ shipping).
Diana also carries wonderful Meshy Produce Bags in four amazing colors! These reusable bulk bags, Meshy hotSACKS, are strong enough for a dozen apples yet versatile enough for your favourite wrapped candies. They come in orange, purple, blue and green. They are only $4.99 Canadian (+ shipping) for 8 bags!
You can also purchase the Everyday hotSACK separately, or the Essential Bag (L11.5 in x W8.5 in x H13 in) - each for $5.95 Canadian (+ Shipping). Check out the ONLINE Store for all the different variations and colors!
