Reusable Totes Bags

Next time you're headed for the store
And are getting ready to run out the door
Don't forget your umbrella and coat
But most importantly, your reusable tote.

Gone Shopping...

If you find yourself with a collection of plastic bags from every store within a 50 mile radius of your house, it's time to make the switch to reusable tote bags. Available in a wide variety of sizes, prints and textures, they'll become your favorite new shopping buddy.

  • Grocery stores have jumped on the bandwagon and almost always sell a reusable bag splashed with their store logo across the side for around a dollar. Pick up a bag (or 10) and use them for all of your grocery store needs instead of piling up on plastic bags.
  • Small enough for your pocket or purse, reusable bags are now available in sizes that are actually easy to carry around.  "Chico Bag" has created an ingenious "grocery store sized" bag, which stuffs into a teeny tiny little pouch and can be carried around (and used) wherever your travels may take you.
  • Fashionable in addition to being practical, reusable bags are now available in trendy prints and sustainable materials. Made from old rice bags or recycled plastic bottles, reusable bags have found a way to lower your carbon footprint while storing your favorite goodies.

The Container Store is now offering reusable bags made from their own old billboards.

Reusable Bags has every kind of reusable tote available for whatever your shopping needs may be.

Zazzle makes it easy to show your eco-pride by scribbling it on the side of their "This is not a plastic bag" tote bag.


Happy Tiffin containers provide an alternative to plastic or disposable containers and are suitable for hot or cold food-to-go.
