Here's an ecobag I was introduced to by my nephew, Barry's wife who gave it to me as a gift. I chained it to my backpack and used it all the time.
It worked so well that when I went to Japan, I was thrilled to get another one from my cousin. I bought one for my daughter, but she carries hers inside her handbag. Anytime I make a purchase, I just whip out my little bag. It's made of some kind of colorful polyester or nylon fabric that folds up very tiny and is quite strong. I feel a whole lot better now that I don't end up with loads of little bags that I feel guilty adding to the landfills.
P.S. My daughter, Tiffany just told me that she's seen these thin ecobags sort of like mine at Whole Foods and that those bags roll up into a covenient ball. AND she says Target has a different kind also but is another one that folds up tiny.
2nd P.S. Tif just came back from Whole Foods and Targets which is just around the corner from her condo and she said that the Whole Foods bag is $8.20 and the fabric looks thin like mine. The Target bag is 99 cents and folds up to the size of an envelope but is a different sort of thin fabric... not quite as thin as the ones from Japan.
