Info: Reusable Bag Folded into Carrying Pouch; In Several Colours and Patterns

Single-use plastic shopping bags have been identified as one of our worst environmental offenders, and are being discontinued in many stores or even banned in some regions. Aviva has experimented with several alternatives at our retail location, and these lovely patterned foldable types which come with their own matching carrying pouch have proven to be the favourites, by far.

Info: Reusable Bag Folded into Carrying Pouch; In Several Colours and Patterns

Single-use plastic shopping bags have been identified as one of our worst environmental offenders, and are being discontinued in many stores or even banned in some regions. Aviva has experimented with several alternatives at our retail location, and these lovely patterned foldable types which come with their own matching carrying pouch have proven to be the favourites, by far.

Product Notes:

These eco-friendly, reusable bags open up to be about the same size as a standard plastic grocery or department store bag. Yet they come in – and can folded back into – a thin 7.4 x 11 cm (2.9 x 4.4 inch) rectangle that can literally fit into a shirt pocket for when you're strolling to a store in the summer, or be stored in your purse or kept tucked into an inner jacket pocket indefinitely for those times when you might decide to buy something on impulse or you've forgotten your bags at home.

The carrying pouches have a button snap on one end, and even include a loop with a little hook on the other, that can be attached to a belt loop.

They're made of polyester, so are a fair bit stronger than regular plastic bags (especially the newer, more biodegradable ones), and are easily washable (you can just rinse them off). And unlike the conventional bags with have short handles on either side strictly for the hands, they have longer central straps which can be carried on your shoulder like a handbag or tote bag.

Size and Capacity

The main part of the unpacked bag is about 14-1/2 inches (37 cm) square, with the loop of the handles being able to extend about another 7 inches (18 cm) above that.

As for its volume, again, it's comparable to a regular plastic grocery bag. For example, it can easily accommodate a shoe box up to a women's size 9 (in this case, the box was 11-3/4 x 8-7/8 x 4-3/4").

The manufacturer has rated their weight capacity as being as high as 15 to 20 kg. They are strong, but we cannot guarantee the bottom seam would hold up to that without additional stitching. So to be on the safe side you may want to confine it to 5 to 7 kg (11 to about 15 pounds).

Colours and Patterns

These bags are produced in a wide variety of colours and patterns, including the ones shown here (although their images are representative and the colours may not be exactly as shown), and many others. The ones we send you cannot be pre-selected; they are sent at random. However, if you buy a set of 5 or more, we shall endeavor to give you as many styles as possible.
