Earth Month Day 17: RuMe Bags


I receive promotional tote bags probably once a month. But Denver-based company RuMe—short for Reuse Me—is the only one that got me to bring my own bag to the supermarket. Why? Because the polyester bags easily roll up and Velcro together in a size small enough to fit into my tiny glove compartment. And when I walk to Trader Joe’s I just stuff one or two RuMe bags in my pocket along with my credit card. I even started using them to bring food to work. Since they’re water resistant and machine washable, I can leave them in the community fridge without worrying about leaking leftovers. The other day I received two compliments when I brought lunch in my Spring in NY-Hamptons tote. That’s something a plastic bag could never achieve.

RuMe bags are available in sets of three for $29.85 and are sold separately for $9.95 each. They also have new metallic bags, made of a thicker fabric, that sell for $17.95 each.

    These are very cute. My husband actually asked me about buying our own bags to use at the store, I may have to consider getting 2 sets of these and leaving them in the trunk.
