    I love this, but I really want proof that these are recycled. How did they gather them? Did they go door to door? Shuffle through bins? How were they cleaned and screened for damage?

    I have a detachable bike basket in the front of my bike. But I have been hunting a trunk options as well. I like this one but how does it attach to a bike?

    Sounds like a great company and a great product. I tried following the link to Detours and it wanted a password.

    Sorry about the link – It worked the other day, not sure what happened. I did find it at REI, so try this link : http://www.rei.com/product/783858

      To Nek Nek D’Grassi and fan69:
      To some degree your questions are right. Anyway it may be people like you that keep change from happening.
      Do you think they would buy the used bottles on the PET market for serious cash? Probably they drank all them bottles while weaving the bags.
      On cleaning: they were probably cleaned like everyone would do it: by rinsing them with water. A shopping bag is meant to get dirty, e.g. by shopping groceries. So why worry about residue on the bottles?
      Screening for damage in that case may be as easy as handcrafting a product. Who needs computer controlled inspection for a ton of cash when you can control quality with your senses, i.e. seeing and feeling. And for small runs of goods, the old-fashioned way is probably better most of the time.
      Y’all have a good one!
