We use shopping bags from defunct businesses, misprints, outdated promo, old logo, or printed lots unclaimed by a client. In general, we're looking for bags that nobody would have a use for... nobody except Repurposed.
We want to be true to our concept. Does it make sense to purchase new shopping bags for products that are all made from something else?!! Bags should be paper or reusable (no plastic, per local ordinances) and we don't care what's printed on them, as long as it's family friendly. (Christmas bags in June? Sure!) Various sizes are needed, but we are seeking cases of the same size, not mismatched lots of individual bags.
But we really do appreciate those of you who have offered us those bags you've been saving!
EDIT 10/16/22: We have plenty of smaller bags (like the one shown in the photo) to get us through next season (and the season after that and the season after that and...). We are on the lookout for larger, grocery store-sized bags at this point. While we use them less often and don't need as many, when you buy a large item, you need a large bag!
