Fact: You can't spell 'plastic waste' without 'cattle wasps'.
Coincidence? Probably. One thing is for sure, we don't really like the sound of either.
This bag won't protect you when the wasps come, but it will definitely cut down on plastic waste. And that's arguably the more sensible way to save the planet.
The Eco Tote Deluxe is extra big and extra awesome. (If you're looking for our Classic Eco Tote size, we retired it - this has always been our most popular and best-selling model for good reason!)
The Deluxe Eco Tote is the ultimate compact, reusable utility bag and our go-to grocery shopper because of its awesome over-sized capacity.
While it shines for groceries, this is your new go-everywhere tote - it's an amazing utility bag around the campsite for food or trash when you're camping or backpacking, it's a great gym & yoga bag, the list goes on...
We gave our Classic Eco Tote an upgrade and created an instant best-seller in the process. The Deluxe Eco Tote is comparable in size to an average beach bag, pool bag or large canvas tote and can hold up to 50lbs!
Reusable bags not only cut down on massive amounts of plastic waste, they also make your life easier - you can stop worrying about your bags breaking on the way to the front door and you can carry a lot less baggage, especially with the awesome capacity of the Deluxe Eco Tote.
But what good does it do you to have a reusable bag if you forget it at home? Trek Light Gear's Eco Totes packs down to a tiny pocket-sized pouch and have a convenient keychain clip attached. Keep them on you or stash them easily in your car, backpack, etc.
Trek Light Gear's Eco Totes are unforgettable - in every way. (Yeah, we did)
Plastic waste is killing our planet.
Made from the excess material leftover from our hammock manufacturing, the revolutionary Trek Light Eco Tote does double duty to save the world - cutting down on our own waste while providing a product that allows you to do exactly the same.
60,000 plastic bags are used every 5 seconds in the U.S alone, and only 1-3% of these bags are recycled. That means the rest of those bags make their way into landfills, streams, and oceans.
Even worse - every plastic bag can take as long as 1,000 years or more to decompose. Read that again, that means every single plastic bag that's ever been thrown away or discarded is likely still in existence, clogging our landscape and killing our wildlife.
Paper bags fare slightly better on the recycling front, but we still have to cut down about 14 million trees each year to make them.Most paper bags get only one single use before they break, tear or are discarded.
Even if you're already in the habit of taking a reusable bag to the grocery store, do you remember to use it to bring your lunch to work? To take that bottle of wine and your latest culinary creation to your next dinner party?
Trek Light Gear's Eco Tote Products can be used for anything you currently use a plastic bag or canvas tote for - including everything from packing your trash out on your next backpacking trip or going green next Halloween with a reusable Trick or Treat bag for the kids. They also make great bear bags for hoisting your food into a tree on your next camping adventure.
Your Trek Light Eco Tote can be cleaned easily, reused over and over again, and like all of our products you can rest easy with our Lifetime Warranty and Happiness Guarantee.
Plastic waste is a crisis, the solution fits in the palm of your hands.
For every item sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant a tree in your honor.
Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change.
Trees For The Future uses a Forest Garden approach to reforestation - planting trees to not only provide environmental benefits, but also food, income, and community agriculture where it's needed most.
Every purchase creates a chain reaction of good and happiness in the world, and it all starts with you.
As you've likely seen on our website, we stand behind our products with what we call our Happiness Guarantee. So, what does that mean exactly?
In a nutshell: We want you to be happy with what you buy from us, and if you aren't - you've got our promise that we'll always do whatever we can to bring you happiness.
Within reason, right? Maybe you're sad because everything in our store doesn't cost $1, or you wish our 30-day return window was actually 3 years - well, we need to have some rules so we can survive as a small business.
What matters is that we're here for you.
We truly care about your happiness, and will always do what we can to help - maybe it's a discount on your next order, store credit for a future purchase, or just going out of our way to make sure that the next item you buy from us is exactly what you want.
Feel Good. Do Good. Pass It on.
If for any reason you're not happy with anything you ordered from us, just send it back to us within 30 days by following the instructions below.
The product must be in unused or 'like-new' condition - you're welcome to try a product to make sure you like it, but we cannot accept returns that are abused, stained, washed/laundered, or otherwise damaged (unless the damage is the result of a manufacturer's defect, in which case it is covered under our Lifetime Warranty).
Holiday Extension: All purchases made in November or December will be allowed an extended return window thru 1/31. We'll make it easy for the gift recipient to handle any returns or exchanges!

I have been waiting for these to be back in stock. Had one a few years ago and loaned it to a friend in India and it's still there. They are so durable and hold a lot. When traveling they barely take up any space and unfold to a large bag when you need it. Will be watching for more colors to buy more (purple would be nice). Love all of Trek Light Gear products!
What a great product and great idea. No excuse now to not have a reusable bag ready for just about any use: groceries, library books, etc. I keep mine in my daily use backpack in case I pop in a store for a few items. Durable, compact, and handy!
We have tons of reusable bags, and these are hands down my favorite!! They are super durable, carry a ton of groceries, and pack super small to stay easily stored in my purse!
I use this bag all the time! I bought two more. I love them! Thank you!
Thanks Sherry! Enjoy your totes!
one great bag lite easy to use and durable ,easy people to work with.
