ECOCRAFT: Kootsac re-usable bulk bags
I am a bit of a compulsive plastic bag avoider (which has lead to many a purse covered in bulk peanut butter & curious stares from passersby as I attempt to transport more than I can possibly carry sans bag), so I was really excited when I came across these Canadian-made eco bulk bags on sköna life.
Here is a description of the bags from maker of The Kootsac:
AN ALTERNATIVE TO THROW-AWAY PLASTIC BAGS
One day, while shopping in my favorite natural food store, I suddenly realized how much plastic filled our shopping carts. Beautiful organic nuts, grains, pulses and other healthy dried goods go home in a zillion plastic bags. I was appalled when I considered how many plastic bags we throw away in a year.
I wanted to find an alternative. They needed to be lightweight, yet strong, re-usable, washable and would fasten with a twist tie. They had to be capable of holding any bulk food item, even flour, without leakage.
As a clothing designer and textile artist I felt that I could come up with some alternative to this problem.
I've been using my ripstop nylon 'Kootsac' bags now for more than a year and I'm really pleased with them. I know you will be too.
