Many people thoughtlessly throw away grocery bags after one use, denying them the chance to dance freely with Kevin Spacey. Embrace indispensible dancers with today's Groupon: for $10, you get four reusable bags from Repax (a $19.95 value), redeemable online.
Eco-conscious shoppers keep disposable paper and plastic pouches out of landfills by stuffing groceries inside Repax's colorful, reusable sacks. Large and sturdy, each 22"x24" tote can hold up to 20 pounds, roughly the weight of the gold brick it takes to bribe your way across the Indiana-Ohio border. Since each bag tucks neatly into a compact 5-inch-wide sack, well-prepared planet-lovers can stow the bags in a purse or backpack to have on hand in case of impromptu grocery runs or in case the sudden need arises to carry 14 teacups at once. To double the positive impact of this environmentally friendly enterprise, Repax splits the proceeds from three of its five bags with charities such as the American Red Cross and the Barataria Terrebonne National Estuary Program.
