In recent years, there has been much concern expressed about our consumption of plastic bags. One report claims that an average family accumulates 60 plastic bags in only four trips to the grocery store. Sound like a lot? What is your loaf of bread in? Open your cereal box – more plastic. One place, where you have a choice is the check-out line. Perhaps you switched to paper. It is easier to recycle and/or decomposes faster. But paper bags actually require more material per bag in the manufacturing process than single-use plastic bags. Plus, paper comes from trees – and lots of them!
So, what is a savvy consumer to do? Bring your own re-useable totes, of course! Choose from a multitude of options. We have solid-colored grocery totes in a variety of colors, such as natural, black, lime, red, royal, even denim.
Need to keep your groceries cool for the trip home? There is an insulated tote (#T1651) with top zip closure to keep your cold items chilled on a hot day.
There are even eco-friendly totes made from organic and recycled materials - such as the Anvil 100 percent organic cotton boater tote (#431) and the recycled cotton tote (#A505).
In addition to shopping expeditions, a tote bag is great for a trip to the pool or beach. There are totes with cats, dogs, “dots” or “floral” patterns – so cute, you’ll want to take them everywhere.
