I see your best seller guarantees 2 years of regular use – OMG – I’VE BEEN USING THEM FOR 12 YEARS! And still using them. I’ve used them weekly to go grocery store and washed them quarterly since I purchased them in 2004!! I haven’t purchased another bag since I bought yours.
I bought my first 1Bagatatime bag in 2005 from a local produce stand, Kordell's in Lake Oswego, OR. I still use it to this day in 2015 on a weekly basis. I thought it was a great idea then, and look, now every store asks "Do you have your reusable bags with you?"
Every Earth Week, we give away 20,000 free custom reusable bags. 1 Bag at a Time is attentive and responsive and offers us great customer service! The bags are exactly what we wanted (and come in right on budget) and our customers look forward to them every year.
The Mountain Lodge Telluride has been purchasing top quality bags from 1 Bag At a Time for the past 5 or 6 years. We use the bags as a marketing tool for our Lodge and give them away in each room upon arrival so our guests can use the bags for local shopping and therefore cut down on plastic bags contaminating our planet. The quality of the bags is so good people take them home and re-use them. We have images of our property along with our name and website. I have seen our bags in Australia, Europe, South America and all over the United States. They are very popular and the marketing value is unbeatable.

We (here at LifeSource Natural Foods) love our 1 Bag at a Time reuseable grocery bags. Because we change our color combination and/or design with each order, our customers collect them and use them whenever they shop elsewhere. And, the customer service is great, too!
At Harvest Co-op Market, we have been repeat customers for 10 years. We not only wanted a good quality, long lasting bag for environmental reasons, but we also wanted to be sure that workers were treated responsibly. We found both - along with excellent customer service - with 1 Bag at a Time
