What: Cute and practical market bags

The Lowdown: These reusable market bags are perfect for grocery shopping  and even better they carry your phone, your wallet, those adorable pictures of your kids, and more! Sturdy enough to carry your (organic) milk, fashionable enough to use as a carry-along. Welcome to the new age of the fashion-forward, reusable grocery bags!

Friends have occasionally asked us how we remember to bring resuable grocery bags to the store. Here’s our secret: We use canvas bags as a carry-along tote so they’re always on us, regardless! If we’re running to the gym, just throw the yoga mat and water bottle in; if we’re hitting the grocery store on the way home, the yoga mat is promoted to shotgun in the car and voila! A grocery bag ready to go. Of course, they’re not always fashionable. The bags at howgreenisyourbag.com – now there’s a good answer to the dilemma! These adorable (and convenient) bags are made from eco-friendly coated jute for easy cleaning, hold 3-4 times more groceries than plastic bags, and fold flat for easy storage. Best of all, they eliminate the use of thousands of single-use grocery bags over their lifetime.
