I'm getting really tired of plastic bags, they are horrible for the environment, and while I am far from becoming obsessed with saving the planet, I think that this is a first step I could take.
The problem with "green bags", is that most of the time they are not the most fashionable bags out there. So how do you save the planet and look good while doing it?
Well, here are few tips in picking a stylish "green" bag:
It doesn't have to be a "green" bag. It doesn't have to be organic. As long as you keep reusing the same bag, you are doing your part in saving the environment.
It shouldn't be expensive. Considering you will store garlic and onions in it, it would be silly to ruin an expensive bag for groceries.
These are the prettiest and cheapest totes I've found online:
American Eagle Tote, available in different colors.
For something different, how about a French Shopping Basket?
But the best option, if you can crochet, is to make your own grocery tote with yarn made out of cut up plastic bags, referred to as "plarn", very interesting!
While the worst option would have to be
The Louis Vuitton LoVe Tote!
