ReusableBags.com Review and Giveaway


ReusableBags.com has been fighting the massive over-consumption of plastic shopping bags since 2002 and has made a significant impact. "Is the plastic bag the worst thing adversely affecting our environment? Probably not. However it is very important because of its ubiquitous nature. Nearly all of us use them -- all the time. Pervasive and out of control, it is a powerful symbol of consumerism gone wild. The mindless over-consumption of plastic bags is just plain dumb and we are helping make it a thing of the past." They provide consumers with a wide range of "reusables," including safe, reusable bottles and eco-friendly lunch bags. As of 2009, they have enabled 180,000+ customers to reduce their consumption of use-and-toss items by more than 700 million units.
They sell a variety of things such as:


I got to review an ACME Bags™ - Large Insulated Lunch Bag in Camo. The material feels strong, and it looks well made. My son absolutely loves it! He thinks the camo print is really cool. Its durable shell is made from tough, high-quality nylon fabric that is lead-free. 100% recycled insulation is made in the USA, comes from plastic bottles and containers, and contains no phthalates. They estimate that the insulation used in each lunch bag saves approximately 1-2 plastic bottles from landfills. The non-toxic freezer pack is reusable and also made in the USA. 100% guaranteed against defects in materials or construction for life. If for any reason the bag fails due to normal wear and tear, they will fix or replace it for you free of charge.





Handmade in the USA
100% recycled insulation
PVC-free / Lead-free
Lifetime Guarantee
Sustainable, thermal alternative to throwaway paper & plastic bags
Comes with a free reusable, non-toxic freezer pack (also available individually)
Interior pocket, adjustable shoulder strap, Velcro closure
Insulates hot or cold food & beverage for hours
Available in 6 colors

  9. I would love to win this, because with the economy such as it is, my kids have been bringing their lunch to school more than they did last year and I only have one reusable lunch bag. Checking out the website, I really like their stainless steel reusable water bottles. There has been a lot of talk about the dangers of plastic water bottles, both for our health and for the impact on the environment when they reach the landfill. If I had a couple of these Klean Kanteen water bottles (debating whether I would prefer the 18oz or 27oz considering all the water my boys bring with them to their baseball games). Overall, it is a great site and thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  71. Nice items on their site, so it was hard to choose. Love the Klean Kanteen water bottles, as my son and myself both use water bottles for worok/school/sports. My 17 yr old son sure would like that lunch bag, as it is more "manly" than the paper bags I'm sending with him. He's trying to save $$ and lose weight by taking his own lunch to school and work, so this would be terrific! Thanks

  72. Truthfully, I really like just about everything on the website - I wish everyone knew that "green" is beautiful - and doesn't necessarily take a lot of "green" to buy. Since I genuinely like so many items, I'll just opt for the Gecko Traders Recycled Market Bags - in any and all colors.

  73. I like the Heavy Duty Hemp Grocery Set. I bring my own grocery bags when I go shopping. I hate to be wasteful and use plastic bags. These seem very durable and able to last forever.

  75. We have found that our most significant waste reduction has been with plastic (bottles in particular). So a reuseable bottle, such as the 40 oz. stainless steel Kleen Canteen would be a good selection for us. :)
