Reusable and washable paper bags that should last 5+ years if well cared for.
What the reusable cup is to coffee, SammyBags is to food. It’s all about reducing waste and shifting our behaviour from disposable, to reusable.
SammyBags are made from washable Kraft paper, 60% Cellulose, 30% Latex and 10% compounding ingredients. It feels like paper, ages like leather. Plus they are very light, easily slip into your backpack, without taking up space or weighing you down on your daily commute. You can even put SammyBags through your washing machine on any cycle or rinse in the sink and if looked after well should last you over 5 years.
SammyBags are available in 10 different styles and two different colours - Natural and Black:
Small - cookies and pies
Medium - muffins, large scones or sandwiches
Large - fruit, buns or rolls
Extra Large - Loaf of bread
Jumbo - extra large loaves and artisan bread

Regular - Size: 180 x 130 x 250mm

How do I clean my SammyBag? - Shake it out and brush off any crumbs -or- - Wipe off any marks with a damp cloth -or- - Rinse in the sink under running water -or, if it needs a really deep clean, you can- - Pop it into the washing machine with your tea towels
You can put SammyBags through your washing machine on any cycle (even in a front loader at 95°C!) and it will come out looking like new. We recommend using a fragrance free Eco washing powder. We also recommend washing on a low temperature at a setting that uses the least amount of energy.
We would NOT recommend the use of pegs on SammyBags because they can mark and stretch the material in its damp form. You’re just going to have to find somewhere else to hang it out to dry, like on that branch over there for example.
Mental Health Support: For every bag you purchase, SammyBags donate $1 to community mental health.
