Hey Jute, You're Quite a Bag
In this season of gifting, baskets are a traditional favorite way to include lots of little things in a single package. For this season, we offer an alternative to this time-honored convention in the form of Trader Joe's Jute Bag. Jute is a natural vegetable fiber that absorbs more CO2 than trees, making it environmentally friendly. It is spun into thread and woven into these bags, which are outfitted with smart, sturdy cotton handles. For that person on your list who has it all, why not fill a Jute Bag with Trader Joe's goodies? They'll get a bunch of delicious treats, plus a bag they can use again and again.
And where will they use the bag? Well, for groceries, of course. It also makes a great purse, gym bag, beach bag, book bag… if you need a bag, Trader Joe's Jute Bag is there for you. And it's there for just $4.99, a terrific value for this sustainable, reusable, dare-we-say trendy bag.
