What makes our shopping bags so good?

Our reusable shopping bags are made from rPet material – recycled plastic drink bottles.

With tonnes of single use plastic going in to landfill every day, we decided it was time to take action and our gorgeous range of reusable shopping bags was born.

It’s exciting to think that the bag you carry your shopping home in is made of “rubbish” otherwise destined for landfill.

You will find our bags super strong and they are often capable of holding far more than you may be able to carry!

Our lightweight bags are also incredibly compact. Folding up into a pouch the size of your fist, our shopping bags are super convenient to carry. They also feature a sturdy carabiner clip so you can clip your shopping bag onto your handbag or belt. Never leave your reusable shopping bags at home again!

The built-in shoulder strap also comes in very handy when you simply do not have enough hands. Inside the bag, you will find the pouch and drawstring with the carabiner attached. Simply clip the carabiner into the small caddy loop found on the inside near the bag opening, and your bag is now a tote.

The caddy loops on the inside of the bag opening can be used by the checkout attendant and slipped over the plastic bag dispenser most checkouts use. This allows the checkout attendant to more easily pack your shopping bags for you.

On the front of the bag you will find a small pocket. This is useful to hold your shopping list and pen or mobile phone and car keys, or any other small items.


  • Convenient carabiner clip means it is literally always ‘On ya’
  • Built-in shoulder strap makes this a very versatile bag
  • Built-in shopping caddy loops for easy packing
  • Just 50g total weight
  • Useful front pocket
  • Holds up to 4kg/8.8lb
  • Measures 37cm wide x 46cm high/14.5in wide x 18.1in high
  • Made from up to 8 plastic bottles
  • 12 month Manufacturers Warranty

A note on our packaging: Our commitment to sustainability extends to our packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling or composting. We ship low waste and plastic free, reusing boxes and packing materials where we can or FSC certified shipping envelopes that are 100% recyclable.

  1. Leanne C

    Love these bags!
    I’ve been using these bags for well over 10 years and they are excellent. These bags are strong, compact when not being used and easy to carry. The bags are that good I now give them as gifts.

  2. Maree S

    I bought this to replace one I have had for years and I have to say I was very marginally disappointed. I like the old one better, The old material was softer and the carry bag was smaller so took up less room in the handbag. Only had to replace it when the puppy got hold of it and chewed it to pieces. The second one was a present well received.

      Hi Maree,

      Many thanks for your very valued feedback!

      We are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the change in fabric for our bags. As we are sure you are aware, our goal at ONYA is to offer customers a well thought out, quality alternative to single-use plastic.

      It has been quite a number of years since we used the parachute fabric (virgin polyester) for our bags and moved to the more sustainable material of rPET, as stated on each product page. Whilst rPET (a fabric made from recycled BPA free single use plastic drink bottles) is a stiffer fabric than the parachute fabric, it will soften with use though will never be quite as soft or light as the parachute fabric.

      Back in 2006, our Bags were made from virgin polyester, and we are now using rPET material or in other words recycled plastic drink bottles.

      Creating an eco-friendly product in this way – from an already existing material rather than straight from scratch – saves on energy and resources and also means there is less plastic polluting the natural environment or wasting away in landfill. It is these processes and products that will help us build a more sustainable planet and way of living, rather than simply churning through resources and living beyond our means.

      We realised that unless recycled materials are used to make everyday products then none of us are really recycling, so we thought maybe we can set an example for industry on how these existing resources can be used rather than using virgin materials. Our dream is that one day, recycled and repurposed materials will be the first stop for manufacturing globally.

      Thanks to this initiative, we estimate that 5.5 million single use plastic drink bottles have been diverted from landfill and used to make Onya products. Your bag itself kept 8-10 plastic bottles out of landfill and our environment.

      We thought that you would also be interested to know that whilst our fabric has changed the overall quality, design and construction of the bags remains the same. We understand that rPET may not be for everyone, however we do hope that knowing why we made the change may change how you may feel about your Onya bag.

      Once again we really appreciate your feedback and your support and efforts in the fight against plastic waste and should you have any questions, please just let us know.

  3. David K

    A much easier bag to fill and carry around. The legs of the model in the image are an added attraction !!!

  4. Sarah G

    Another Christmas present- in Australia this time – greatly appreciated.

  5. Elizabeth A

    Small strong stylish pocket sized when folded up very useful.

  6. Karen B

    Perfect size
    So handy and compact to carry in my handbag

  8. Joy B

    Purple Shopping Bag
    The best little bag which fits into my bag and clips on and is not lost. Love it.

  9. Jennifer B

    Neat & practical
    Small & practical. Would be lost without them. Love the colours of bags. Highly recommended.

  10. Helen H

    Great design
    I have been using these bags for 15 years. They are strong and so easy to wash. Small when empty so it’s convenient to have with me at all times when I go out.

  11. Carrie H

    I had to replace my ten year old onya bags, much loved and ripped and mended! What a surprise to get the new model! Completely different fabric, but recycled, so that’s good! Bulkier to fold and pack after the old silky ones, but now I am used to them, they are just fine. I just love the colours – a pink and a green one, I love the designs on the pockets and the fact that I can carry them on my shoulder with the strap. Always have them onya – and I do!! Love them!!

  12. Daniel C

    Sturdy bag,good customer service.I bought one of these bags over 15 years ago roughly and love İt. It was made from a parachute material. The new version is made from recycled material I believe but doesn’t feel as lovely as the other one but this is a personal view of course but does not effect quality /sturdiness of the bag.

  13. Margaret J

    Excellent quick service.

  14. Ian M

    5 Stars

  15. Sally W

    Really handy bag
    Having lost my original onya bag whilst out shopping, i was so glad that I could buy another one great for when I am going to the local shops. Fits in my handbag and you don’t loose the carrying pouch.

  16. Jen L

    Really good –
    Like the size and ability to convert but quite thick material so doesn’t compress as much as I’d like. 10 stars for customer service and values!

  17. Maria K

    Onya bags have become indispensable for all our family members, men and women alike. We love the shape that makes it easy to carry groceries and all other stuff home. We use them to go to Yoga and Pilates, we never leave the house either with a bag clipped to our handbag or the men without one in a pocket. They are trendy, sustainable and utterly convenient

  18. Don M

    Great Bag
    Have used these bags for years and would thoroughly recommend. This one made an ideal Christmas present for grandaughter who loved colour.

  19. Lesley T

    Excellent product!
    This is my second small bag, the last one lasted more than 10 years, I’m sure this one will do the same. It’s strong, holds loads of shopping and is attractive.

  20. Paul W

    No problems ordering this my 2nd onya bag as they are just
    The right size bigger than my Waitrose reuseable bags which
    Don’t hold enough and I like the colours and small pocket on the bag

  21. Debbie G

    Love these bags so light weight and being able to fold up into the little pouches is brilliant can carry them around in my handbag

  22. rls

    Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for the long service!
    I was given one of the original small shopping bags with the NZ flag on in about 2010 – they weren’t widely available in the UK but my mum saw them at a trade show. Since then I’ve had a lot (a LOT) of reusable bags whose materials or construction haven’t stood up to the hard life I give them, but the Onya is still going strong.
    It gets thrown in the washing machine every few weeks and recently had its side seams reinforced, but it is hands down the best reusable bag I have ever had.
    Thank you and keep up the good work!

  23. Margaret G

    Great shopping bags. Easy to wash, drip dies on the line very quick.

  24. Catherine B

    I love my ONYA bag. It arrived promptly and I’ve used it everyday since.

  25. Wendy P

    Very happy and so are my two daughters who received a bag each

  26. Angela B

    I was very pleased to be able to order more Onya bags. Having them sent from Australia was surprisingly simple! I am pleased with the products and the postage and ordering experience.
    Thank you.

  27. Desireen J

    I actually found one of your bags that someone left. And then I started using it .. its has been over 9 year since I had it. And it’s getting alittle torn so I decide to look it up and found the home page.. I have been in love with the simple pull out and fold up and the plus is the clip I always have it clipped to my purses and or wallet. There for I am very happy with this product. And I got many complaments. I’m like ah walking advertisement. We dont have it here in hawaii but that would be ah good idea to start… I really do pack it with stuff I shop for it gets heavy but it’s one bag I know wont rip on me. So now having the large and another small size I’m in heaven..and I love the logo that’s what gets the shoppers going live local, shop local…

  28. Brenda Sarno

    HAD a bag for years, using occasionally, but now when we’ve been steered away from plastic bags and most people taking their own bags, I find I use it every shopping day… and its always in my handbag. Now this Christmas it is time to be my main Christmas gift for the family.

  29. Trudy J

    I will tell you a lovely story. I am living in Germany and during holiday in Australia in January 2004 or 2005 I visited the Fremental market in Perth and bought one of your small shopping bags. The man, who selled it , said that he had created the shopping bag and he put 5 kg potatoes in it to show the quality of the bag. I like my bag since that timed . It looks so as it was when I bought it..
    Viele Grüße from Germany

  30. Heather E

    I love my Onya bag and produce bags. Over time I intend on purchasing more of the different lines.

  31. Ash R

    Love how easy it is to get into the pouch. It fits into my car door perfectly. I brought 2 large and 1 small shopping bags and a set of produce bags. They are brilliant. I will get some more for others as gifts and for people I live with. Loving less plastic in my life (only the good stuff!!!)

  32. Julie

    I love this bag- used it the first day I had it. I never forget to take a reusable bag with me now- it is always clipped to my bag. Fits so easily back into its storage pouch after use

  33. Maddy O

    Love these products!!
    Will be purchasing for Xmas gifts. thank you Onya.

  34. Sarah M

    I bought one of these along with produce bags, so it also sits permanently in my handbag and takes up a tiny amount of space meaning I always have a bag handy. Super happy with the colour, stuffability, and usability. I use it for both grocery shops and other retailers. Extra fab features include the clip and the way you can convert to a shoulder bag.

  35. Jules

    Easy to get in and out of little storage pouch and a good size.

  36. Judith

    Love this bag. It’s a bit like the TARDIS – bigger on the inside! Will definitely order more.

  37. Joanne

    I love these bags, the handles are so sturdy and they fold up nicely. I do wish the handles were a little larger so I could fit my arms through them as I can with some other bags, but they are quick and easy to fold up and are nicely contained when floating around in my handbag.

    • Onya HQ

      Thanks Joanne. Just invert the pouch and use the caribiner to clip to the loop on the other side of the bag. There’s your shoulder strap 🙂

  38. Wendy White

    Bought one of these bags a few years ago and it is my favourite.
    Because of the handle position it sits nicely by your side without banging into the legs.
    Will be buying a few of the bigger bags soon.
