RuMe Bags Are 20 Percent Off From Now Until Earth Day

Casa Verde: RuMe Reusable Bags

The question "paper or plastic?" is nearly passé by now, since so many of us are using reusable shopping bags. One company that I've been particularly impressed with is Denver, CO-based RuMe, which was launched on Earth Day last year. RuMe bags aren't only durable and fair-trade certified, they also come in a variety of styles and sizes. I also love that the bags' long handles make them easy to sling over your shoulder, and that their box-stitch sides and bottom makes it easier to pack items like bottles and boxes. Also, these tiny bags can be rolled up and tied together (equaling the size of a cup of coffee), which means they'll fit into even your smallest purse.

While the bags are slightly more expensive than other reusable bags, there are two good reasons for that. RuMe bags, which retail for $30 or less, are made of a higher-quality, thicker, water-resistant 180 denier polyester that can hold up to 50 lbs. The bags are also produced in a government-certified, fair-trade factory, where costs are slightly higher than if the bags were made in an unregulated factory.

Interested in getting a RuMe? Good news: you can now get one for 20 percent off, and I'll tell you how when you


Starting today, you can buy RuMe bags sitewide for an additional 20 percent off. Just enter the promotional code EARTH at checkout to receive the discount, from now until the end of Earth Day (that's April 22).

This is definitely a good option! In England at the moment supermarkets charge 5p for plastic bags... I don't know why the government don't just stop the production and switch to paper/fabric for clothing stores... and introduce either string bags like in Australia, paper or boxes into supermarkets. If they're not available they can't be used. The sad fact of the matter is people are lazy and forgetful and so would happily pay 5p to have a bag- they don't think about the environment when doing this they think about convenience and that they'd rather pay 5p than struggle out the door with a handful of goods.

Sweet! I have so many cloth bags that I use for groceries but they aren't as durable as I would have liked. *shaking fist at Publix shopping bag and staring down Target bags* So this is really cool. Thanks Casa. :)

These are nice! I have a habit of collecting bags, especially ones to take to the grocery store [though we still have a sizeable amount of plastic bags - but they get reused every day!] - and a discount would definitely be helpful! Thanks Casa! :)
