Reusable string bags make a welcome comeback at grocery stores and markets

Before there were plastic bags, there were reusable string bags. Now the environmentally friendly solution to carrying your groceries is back.

The open-netted bags with tote handles have been used for centuries throughout Europe, where they still remain popular.

Made from cotton typically and quite stretchy, even the most smallest of string bags expands to fit a large volume of groceries. String bags are also foldable and easily carried in a handbag or pocket when not in use.

ECOBAGS produce a line of string bags, made from cotton, in a wide range of bright colours including raspberry, Caribbean blue, mango and fuchsia, which have been coloured used lead-free dyes.
