Giveaway: Urban Market Bags Quality Reusable Shopping Bags - #HoppyEaster Giveaway Hop

Disclosure: I received the following item at no cost in return for an honest review.

When I head out shopping, I bring my reusable shopping bags with me. I like reusable shopping bags so much more than what stores have to offer.


Here in California we either have to bring our own bags to go shopping with or purchase them at the store. The choice that the stores give us is either a heavy-duty plastic shopping bag or a paper bag. I am really not too happy with either prospect. Here are my reasons for not wanting to ever use plastic or paper bags again:

These new heavy plastic bags are meant to last for many shopping trips, but that also means that they will last for years in our landfills after they have worn out. These bags do not break down!

Plastic bags are extremely difficult to wash and dry (you do need to wash them to get rid of bacteria).

To me, paper bags are a waste of wood.

The making of paper bags produces a lot of greenhouse gases.

I don't care for carrying items in paper bags as there have been so many times that the paper bags have ripped on me and my items are strewn all over the ground.

Paper bags are not easy to reuse as they easily rip, but they can be recycled (but that uses a lot of chemicals) or made into mulch - I'll give them that much.

Rural Color Scheme
What bags are a great alternative to paper and plastic? Quality fabric bags from Urban Market Bags! These bags are made of a soft material that feels so nice and comfortable on your arm when carrying them. These Eco-friendly nylon market bags are easy to keep clean and free from bacteria. All you have to do is pop them in the washing machine and then just hang them on the line outside to dry or put them in your dryer.


Urban Market Bags sent me their 3-pack set in the Rural color scheme to review. These bags have long handles for slinging over the shoulder. The market bags are conveniently stored in one drawstring pack that fits in the cupholder of your car or handbag so you'll never forget them when you go shopping or to the grocery store. I am finding grocery stores that even have a place for shopping bags, like Urban Market Bags, in their shopping carts!


I always leave my Urban Market Bags in my purse wherever I go. The convenient drawstring pack with the three bags inside weighs next to nothing. I don't feel them in my purse at all.


Another reason why I like these bags so much is their size. The bags are 26’’ tall and 12.5’’ wide and can carry 20% more than your standard plastic bag. These bags easily hold three big boxes of cereal. Even with the generous size of these bags, they all easily fit within the convenient drawstring pack.


Being smart means using Urban Market Bags when you go shopping! I'm so happy to have ditched those plastic and paper bags.


Buy: Urban Market Bags are available in either a 3-pack set or a 6-pack set. Soon to be available - custom designed Urban Market Bags for your next event or for your business.
