I don't buy reusable bags. Sometimes I get them free from exhibitions attended or with stuff purchased. My children get them from the school they attended.
Take a look at these reusable bags we have on hand.
Do you like the colour enough to go shopping with it?
Some can't even take the weight it is supposed to!
Even if it is reusable, would you continue using it if you can't wash the stain off it?
I am sure you are facing the same problems. Do you have a solution to these problems? Me? You bet!
If the kids don't fancy the colour of their reusable bags to use them, slip them into another that they would consider taking.
Here is a lacy bag that I crochet.
This is how it looks with reusable bag tucked in.
The kids are more likely to handle their reusable bags with care if they like the colour and the design. So, while the reusable bag is still new...
...reinforce the handles by running stitches where they join at the bag.
Here is another crochet bag design I created for reusable bag.
That should keep our reusable bags from landing in the trash bin any sooner. How do you like that?
I hope that producers of reusable bags should rethink how they design their bags so that they not only will last longer but will be fashionably, the bag of choice.
