    The Solo Bag - Wow!

    I love the Solo Bag. It's terrific being able to order a bag whenever I need it. It arrives very quickly after ordering it and holds a good amount of old clothing, towels and other fabric items. I have a plastic bag in my closet where I collect old and unusable fabric items. I order the Solo Bag once my closet bag gets full to overflowing. I live in a household where there are 4 adults and 2 kids under age 10. I am so glad that there is a way to recycle fabric items. Of course, there is a cost involved of about $15 but I think it's a good investment to keep fabric items out of the landfill.

    Packaging a bit thin

    I thought the packaging for the solo bag would be a bit thicker. Was concerned about overstuffing the bag and crossed my fingers that it arrived in one piece.

    Saving the environment

    It’s a great way to recycle worn out clothes verses just throwing them away!

    It was very sturdy, and big enough for the fabric scraps that had accumulated over the years. I’m thrilled there’s a place to recycle what I thought would only add to an already overstretched landfill problem. Thank you!

    Love the concept, but as soon as I put one item in the bag the seam split so I had to tape it up in order to use it.
