  • Reusable shopping bags are a great way to cut down on plastic usage and add a bit of sustainability to your grocery routine.
  • Our top pick, the BagPodz Reusable Bag and Storage System, makes it easy to store your shopping bags so they don't clutter your space.

Plastic shopping bags are terrible for the health of the environment. New York recently became the second state to ban the use of plastic bags at most stores, following California. But plastic bags are also bad for your mental health. Who hasn't been driven nearly mad by an ever-creeping pile of grocery bags in one corner of the kitchen? Mine is big enough that I've been considering adding it the lease.

Even if you don't have a giant wad of plastic taking over your living quarters, you wouldn't be here if you weren't considering making the switch to reusable grocery and shopping bags, or looking for better options. Luckily, there are tons of them on the market as sustainability becomes increasingly important to consumers.

Most are made of nylon or canvas and come in all shapes and sizes. Though they look similar on the surface, there are subtle differences that make some reusable shopping bags perform better than others. Some, like our top pick, come with their own storage solutions, and others are just cuter and sturdier than the competition. Regardless, through plenty of research, these bags on our list are customer favorites.
