New! 5 A Day Shopper Bags

My 5 A Day tote bags have been out of stock for a very long time, but I’ve brought them back for Christmas as shopper bags!

Since they’re covered with my happy fruit and vegetables characters, a shopper bag makes much more sense and these are ready for the supermarket, farmer’s market, or just to tuck in your handbag ready for an impulse shopping spree.

These shopper bags have gussets on 3 sides so you can really cram in a lot of groceries. I took one on a test drive myself to make sure – there’s a whole cabbage in there and two full size bottles of squash. They also have long handles so those of us without a car can easily carry everything home.

Best of all, the price stays the same! These would make great gifts for vegetarians, vegans and gardeners, but are useful enough for anyone who does the weekly shop. Get them in my shop now.
