We tested how water resistant a twisted handled paper bag really was. To make this test authentic we loaded it full of grocery shopping and rigged up a garden hose to simulate the rain.
The paper bag lasted a whole 4 minutes and 22 seconds under a full hose. We were pretty impressed with this result, as were our little assistants – who you can hear being “quiet” throughout the film.
Obviously your shopping would still get wet if caught in a downpour of this magnitude, but you should at least make it back home without your milk, butter and eggs splattering all over the floor.
Proof that not only are paper bags an environmentally sound choice but a weather proof one too.
Thank you for watching our lovely film.
