FAQ

General Questions

How do I recycle my bag? 

Our Cart Safe bags are made up of a LDPE ( low-density polyethylene, which is considered a #4 plastic). Most large grocery stores have collection bins which are available to collect and recycle cart safe bags and grocery bags.

What happens to my Cart Safe bag once it’s recycled?

Plastic bag recycling involves chipping the bags into pellets.  Once the bag is turned into a pellet, it can then be processed into new bags and will most likely be sent to a company that will manufacture it into plastic lumber.

How do I know if this bag will fit my cart?

With its specially designed elastic corners, our Cart Safe bags contour to the shape of most carts.  We have yet to find a cart that Cart Safe did not fit.

Can I wash my bag and use it again?

If you would like to get more then one use out of your bag, we recommend hand washing your bag in warm soapy water and then line dry.  You can also disinfect your bag with an antibacterial wipe if you do not have time to hand wash your bag.

How do I know it's safe?

Plastics made from LDPE in their natural state are FDA compliant with regard to repelling microorganisms. Click here to learn more.


Product Warranty

Warranty is good for 30 days from date of purchase and only valid for defective materials or if the package arrives damaged. For the warranty to be honored, you must present proof of purchase.  If the package arrived damaged, you must submit a photo and document the damage in writing.


Why isn't Cart Safe Biodegradable?

Unfortunately technology has not advanced to the point where you can have a biodegradable plastic that also protects you from dangerous microbes. Why? Because on a molecular level biodegradable materials are not impermeable to microbes right now. Germs can get through the gaps therefore defeating the purpose. The good news is, as soon as a biodegradable/defending material is invented we will pursue it for CartSafe!

In the meantime, please follow the recycling or reusing guidelines above.
