CHICAGO — Totasak bag carriers, marketed by G.A.I.M. Engineering Inc. of Bensenville, Ill., use 100 percent post-industrial recycled plastic. At NPE in Chicago, the injection molded totes are being distributed in Niigata Engineering Co. Ltd.'s booth, N5707.
The grocery bag organizer and carrier stores in a purse, pocket or glove compartment. Totasaks have a wide base grip, color throughout and high strength for impact and tensile properties. Other features include a ``twist to lock'' feature to keep the sack closed and a micro-grit texture to prevent slippage.
Wood Dale, Ill.-based Henway Inc. invented the concept about a year ago and asked its sister company, G.A.I.M. to help get the Totasak on the market. Consumers can purchase Totasaks for about $2.
