How much fits in the carrybag
Reusable Shopping Bags are an easy way to "Go Green"
In an effort to promote a "no plastic" shopping experience, many European countries have outlawed plastic bags or charge you for them. The Reisenthel company is based in Germany and they have created this shopping basket. Unfortunately in the U.S. plastic shopping bags are still in widespread use, even though they are harmful to the environment and do not biodegrade. Many more women and men would use a reusable bag if they were all as cute as Reisenthel market bags. These bags have won numerous awards for both design and functionality.
The size and shape of the Reisenthel Carry Bag is similar to that of the plastic baskets that you can use in the grocery store, but much more stylish and chic. But have you ever gone into the store to pick up a few things and struggled to the check out line with one of those plastic baskets? You won't have two plastic handles slipping out of your grip when you are carrying heavy beverages or gallon containers. The image shows the bag being carried and is from the box. The rubber grip makes this tote so easy to carry and your groceries will stay secure in your car when you are transporting them home.
How the basket collapses.
Easy to transport and store
The bag has plastic inserts that you can slide into the sides so the Reisenthel carrybag keeps it's shape, but if you want to collapse the bag to store it, you can remove these inserts and fold the bag down as shown in the photo. The handle locks into position, but with a firm push you can bend it back down. The bag also has a zippered pocket inside if you wish to keep your money, store discount card or keys inside and then you don't need to carry your purse along too.
Bottom of bag
Shown here is the bottom of the bag with 5 plastic feet and the hard bottom to keep your items inside level. The bag will also not sit directly on the floor of the store or trunk of your car since it is elevated by the feet, the bottom will stay clean. The bag maintains it's shape and is almost box like when you also have the inserts in the sides and your items won't roll around.
