Reusable shopping bags get a bounce

Now you can carry your groceries in high fashion style, with a new line of colorful reusable shopping and grocery bags. There's been a lot of talk recently about trying to find reliable sources of practical, reusable shopping bags. Here's another idea to toss on the pile that's different from canvas bags.

The ‘its-laS-tik’ line utilize a special flexible nylon and lycra fabric blend in a wild array of colors and patterns.

They are manufactured totally by Hurricane Katrina survivors in New Orleans.

The bags are designed to stretch and take the shape of the contents you place inside. Big, small, heavy, light… they move with you and STRETCH, making it feel like you aren’t really carrying much.

What’s more, they move up and down when you walk, springing up and down, as you walk. It’s a whole new experience as the elasticity and flexibility of the bag reduces the stress on your body and makes the load easier to carry.

The bags are washable, reusable, economical and fashionable. The bags spring back into shape when emptied and roll up into a very compact little configuration.

Five percent of all sales are donated to Hope House in New Orleans, LA. Bags (above) are 12" x 13"and cost $12.99; pouches (right) are 5"x 9" with zipper & wristlet and cost $11.99
