Washable Paper Tote Bag


These bags from Sun Days Goods are made from washable paper, which is a natural cellulose fiber, therefore 100% sustainable, biodegradable and reusable.  They are a wonderful alternative to plastic bags to help reduce our ocean pollution.  Many reusable bags on the market today are made from synthetic materials which are not sustainable or biodegradable, therefore even though they are reused and cut back the impact to our planet, they still contribute to this problem when they are discarded.  These bags are long lasting and biodegradable, therefore adding no contamination to our marine environment.


Materials + How to Use

Characteristics:  These bags are designed to be fashionable, but also very durable and long lasting.  The handles are reinforced with a hidden cotton webbing which allows for a carrying weight of up to 30 lbs. They are water resistant, tear resistant, lightweight, foldable, hold their shape and do not collapse, which makes packing goods a breeze.  With each use, they begin to take on the look and feel of leather, which makes them a stylish, modern and fun reusable bag.  They are washable like a fabric, but made from paper, therefore giving them their unique and interesting characteristics.  

Simple, but versatile:  These bags are ideal for groceries, as a shopping tote, a bag for the car, a day at the beach, a picnic or stop at a coffee shop with a laptop. The bottom is squared off to make the bags stand on their own. They are water resistant, therefore perfect for a day bag to the pool, on a boat, beach or just a rainy day.  They are great for travel as a carry on or folded in luggage as a destination bag.

Home Decor: These bags are fun additions to home decor and storage organization. Use them for books, magazines, mail, a rolled up throw or two, toys, puppy treasures, firewood, garden tools or just about anything that needs a place in your home or garage. Also ideal for outside decorating to add a plant container, Fall grasses, Spring herbs, Summer blooms or Winter evergreens and branches for the Holidays. Even a bag for birdseed. Be creative and have fun!



Hand wash or machine wash gentle in cool water and air dry.  No worries, they won’t stretch or shrink.


Environmental Impact 

The oceans are so vast and deep, that until recently, it was widely believed that no matter how much trash and chemicals humans dumped into them, the effects would be small.  The proponents of dumping into our oceans had a catchphrase: “The solution to pollution is dilution.” We are now seeing the devastating impact from that philosophy. Our waters are dirty and our marine life suffering.  More than 40 percent of plastic is used just once and then tossed.  Sun Days Goods mission is to reduce single use plastics - these bags are a great start!
