Have a Ball!

Be prepared for on-the-fly shopping excursions with a bag that scrunches up to be stowed in your messenger bag or purse along with all your other essentials. Created by Stanford University product design students Hetal Jariwala and Eva Bauer, the bag was designed to solve every eco-conscious shopper's biggest blunder--forgetting his or her reusable shopping bag. After surveying friends and family members about their shopping habits, the team designed an eye-catching reusable sack whose patent pending stretchy pouch make it cinch to go from ball to bag in seconds flat.

The palm-sized stretchy ball unfurls into a roomy shopping bag made of sturdy machine-washable nylon. Made to transport up to 25 pounds of produce or other provisions, the sack’s felt-padded shoulder straps add a soft touch and keep the goods from slipping off your shoulder. This tough little take-along bag folds like a pair of socks into a peach-sized ball in just a few seconds so you can bag it before you head out. Made in China. Sold individually.

Comments about FLIP & TUMBLE REUSABLE SHOPPING BAGS:

I have used my two bags for groceries but I tend to use them more for a lunch bag or going to and from the library. When I'm not using them they are rolled up in my purse and I always have them with me. I love them! BUT THEY NEED TO HAVE MORE COLORS!

              I love this bag. I have two and the sizes are perfect for shopping. The fact that it folds into itself and just drops into my purse makes it so much easier for me to have them on hand when I shop. I generally forget to take the larger reusable bags out of the car and with me into the store. Everyone asks where I got this bag!

                  This creative design is a fun (and useful) update on the reusable bag. We love how the nylon tote scrunches into the stretchy attached pouch that fits in your pocket, purse, or messenger bag. The felt pad on the shoulder strap is a nice touch, too! Would take one of these bouncing balls--er bags--on the go?

                  Love that you can machine wash this and not worry about it losing its functionality. Great design!

                  If this product were made in the USA and priced slightly lower I would be interested.

                  I could keep this in my purse - I never have my reusable bags with me when I need them.

                  I agree would be more desirable if made in the usa. By the concept and design are nice. Price okay!

                  Add a clip so that I can attach it to my belt loop (I never carry a purse.) And switch it to manufactured here in the USA.

                  having several reusable shopping bags I appreciate the padded shoulder strap feature. even better it folds into itself! a few that I own you have to carefully fold up so that it will fit into the little snap strap. annoying...

                  I LOVE THIS! The crushable small size, 25 lb. capacity and felt-padded shoulder straps are fabulous. The only tithing that I would add would be a small loop and a carabiner to attach to a belt loop or zipper pull. Also would want an American-made item.

                  Cushioned strap, pocket, and easy to roll up-all nice. I can't see the price, but if it was over $10 I would not pay it. And I have seen this concept elsewhere too.
