Fresh Modern Reusable Bags Earth Day

Chicago recently implemented a bag tax and it’s almost Earth Day, so instead of packing I rounded up a list of my favorite reusable shoppers!

The main features you’ll want for a bag that will last forever are thick straps and made of some strong fabric like rip stop nylon or canvas. I’ve been loving my Baggu’s Big Baggu in Hilo. I want their two new plant prints on everything!

Battenwear’s Packable Tote Bag is another rip stop nylon option but with adjustable straps! It’s also a part of Urban Outfitter’s sale, so snatch it up while you can.

Is anyone surprised I love Everlane? They’re one of the most transparent companies in how they make their goods, and profits for this tote go to Edible Schoolyard NYC. It’s a classic canvas but coated for durability and lined with nylon. If dough isn’t your speed they also have a “Know Your Sole” and ‘Know Your Grains”.

An Etsy gem, DEPEAPA‘s unique illustrations are right at home on a cotton tote.

Confession, I still shop at F21 just for the socks & totes. The cheap, $4 bags work as gift bags, shoes covers, and beach bags and I never feel bad tossing them around. And they always tell it like it is.

All eyes on you, you. When you walk into the room with this tote. Perfectly Nice has a bunch of clean and modern graphics, but this one and their snake tote are my favorite.

Another Baggu, but this one is different! The mesh is ideal for veggies and  you can hang and store the tote in the pantry. Shopper & storage. Now you have an excuse to buy it in all their pretty spring pastels.

What I would give to have a waxed canvas bag. They’re more of an investment, but the hardware and materials are built for life. Newton Supply Co. offers the most on trend colors for waxed canvases. Their new seaglass color is particularly striking.

And rounding off the list is the Pinterest Holy Grail, the Apolis Market Bag. They’re sold everywhere and have different cities and occasions so you can find the perfect one for you! Jute exterior, waterproof interior and leather handles, they’re the farmer’s market dream.

A few other places to check out would be Herschel and Mochi Things. Herschel’s market tote comes in so many colors and even a frond print!

Mochi Things is my secret source for adorable paper goods & unique gift ideas. Their shopping cart shopping bag is too amazingly meta not to get.
