I did buy one of the small bags and find it handy. Just a resource for others, www.reusablebags.com has bags with long and short handles, ultra-compact bags that roll or fold up and lots of other types from a wide range of materials including organic and recycled cotton, hemp, etc. Glad to see more people getting into bringing their own bags every day!

LOVED THE STORY AND THE LUNCH BAG. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHERE I CAN PURCHASE THE BAG. MAYBE I MISSED IT READING...SHOULD BE EASIER TO FIND RIGHT AT THE TOP OF ARTICLE...IF I MISSED IT SOMEWHERE I AM SORRY.

Hello. I would like to purchase some of your carry bags, but do not live in an area where there is a Whole Foods store (unfortunately!) Are they available online anywhere? Thank you!

I would love to see a bag with a design highlighting your commitment to farm animal well-being and protection. Thanks for moving the world away from factory farms and for supporting humane practices. I would love to see a partnership between Whole Foods and Wayne Pacelle (President of the Humane Society of the US). Thank you again!

When your bag is at the end of its life as a shopping bag and since it cannot be recycled, try using them as a DIY potato grow bag. There is lots of information on the internet about how to do this.

Does anyone know if there are any large totes out there left to purchase?

I have a great idea for a reusable bag. My daughter is in kindergarten, and their topics have been about healthy eating. She brought home a water color painting of fruits and vegetables. And the caption read "I like good food" . The future of reusing/recycling, is held by our children. The innocence and rawness of the painting would really hit home to a lot of people. And I think that a lot of people would buy them, because a lot of families shop whole foods markets. Thanks for reading

Unfortunately, these cheap reusable shopping bags are often more of a marketing ploy than a great choice for the environment

Where can I buy 75 of the bags?

The bags should still be available for purchase at your local Whole Foods Market store. Just go to Customer Service and we'll be happy to find 75 of these bags for you. To find your nearest store: http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores

I'd love to get 5 of the Sheryl Crow lunch bags / totes. I can't find them in my local store....Jericho,NY. Can they be purchased directly from you ?

@adela: Looks like the Sheryl Crow bags are almost all sold out. They are only available at our stores and word has it that only a few stores in our Southwest Region have any remaining. Sorry!

I would like to see more bags with wheels on them. I am in New York City and when most people leave your stuff, they are not hopping into their cars. They are either walking, taking a bus or going to catch the train. IF you are carrying alot of stuff in the regular tote bags, its puts a strain on your hands, arms and back. A bag with wheels would definitely help. I remember seeing a bag with wheels at a Whole Foods in Tribeca but the one at 59th Street Columbus Circle did not have any bags with wheels.

When will the next lunch size bags be available? I have called a few stores to get more of the Sheyl Crow version and they are all out. Thanks.

@Sarah There was a summer lunch size bag created that has a basket on it and there will be a holiday lunch size bag coming out in the fall. It's hard for me to say what your local store will carry because they can decide what to bring in depending on their customers' interest. Maybe if you asked for the lunch size bag and didn't mention the Sheryl Crow one specifically, they could help you better. Thanks!

Please hurry with the next edition of your small reusable bags. I love the size of this bag. It's perfect for lunch. Just recently, my lunch spilled in my bag and I had to throw it away. I went to Whole Foods and they claimed they are out of the bags. I would really like to purchase more.

Unfortunately we don't have a way for you to purchase them online......yet. But most of our stores have a Concierge team that can take your order over the phone and have them shipped to you.

I have a FANTASTIC idea! How about Sheryl Crow + Whole Foods Market + NRDC + Kiss My Face peace products + Seeds For Peace = A Better Bag? Kiss My Face's new peace products are awesome, and the design is great. A bag that matches their bottle design would be great for the holidays and popular with teens. What a great way to spread peace, save the environment, promote community, involve youth and more!

A few years ago, I purchased a few reusable Whole Foods bags that I absolutely love. I have lost a couple since then, and I would love to buy (many!) more to replace them, but I haven't seen them in your stores for quite sometime. They are green, and they fold up neatly into a small rectangle, about the size of a standard letter envelope. They stay closed when folded thanks to a little bit of velcro. I love these bags because of the way they fold up so neatly and compactly, and I would absolutely love it if one of your new bags had this same feature. Thanks!
