NEW! The XL Vest Carrier

With the increasing use of reusable bags, our new XL Vest Carrier Bag for Life is meeting the demand for a low cost reusable bag that is the right shape for carrying shopping.

Good for Consumers

  • Carries TWICE the shopping of a regular supermarket carrier bag.
  • Shoppers need to buy less bags and will save money.
  • The bag is as thick and as strong as a flexi-loop bag for life.
  • When sold for 5p it is excellent value for money.
  • It is more hygienic for carrying food than a bag made of natural fibres.


Good for Retailers

  • The XL Vest qualifies as a ‘bag-for life’ under the English bag levy regulations.
  • As a bag-for-life, it is exempt from the levy.
  • Buying and selling the XL Vest can therefore be a COST NEUTRAL solution.
  • Customer satisfaction levels are improved.
  • The bag is very strong and return rates are typically less than 1%.


Good for the Environment

  • Using one bag instead of two means less throw-away bags are in circulation.
  • As a paid-for, reusable item, the bag is less likely to wind up in landfill.
  • As a bag-for-life, it helps to perpetuate CLOSED LOOP RECYCLING of plastics.
  • The bag is made with 25% LESS FOSSIL-FUEL PLASTIC.
