June Fifteen Reusable Shopping Bags Go From Supermarket to Office to Gym

CULVER CITY, CA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - Now shoppers with a desire to go green have a solution that's big on utility without skimping on style. Eco-chic reusable bags from June Fifteen (www.june15collection.com) are the ultimate in multi-purpose, stylishly converting from shopping bag to purse to gym bag to gift bag.

June Fifteen Founder and CEO Sandrine Cassidy Schmitt always had a keen fashion sense. Eco-minded and convinced that a fashionable alternative to the basic $.99 polypropylene bags was needed, "I created the June Fifteen collection to feature designs with an haute couture feel without the high price point," said Sandrine. The bags go for $6.99 to $15.99, with styles for women, men and children. Their style and practicality are well suited to shopping at any type of venue and to carrying anything, not just groceries.

Handcrafted with natural sustainable materials, the collection (www.june15collection.com/our_bags.html) is primarily made of renewable jute, rattan cane and 100% cotton, and comes with ISO 9001 quality certification. Used for potato sacks and coffee bean bags, jute is a material ideal for heavy loads. Designed to strike a balance between fashion, function and versatility, the line includes an array of practical features that vary by bag. Details like pockets and movable separators, dual handle styles, waterproof linings, reinforced seams and easily cleaned fabrics make the bags incredibly usable. Wine bags with matching bottle coasters round out the collection. June Fifteen also offers private labeling and full customization for companies wanting to fashion their own bags for sale, promotions and gifts.
