I am obsessed with totes. I noticed in Europe everyone was carrying them for their groceries, pharmacy purchases, laundry....everything. Then when I was in the market line, I realized why. The stores charge you for every bag you need! This encourages everyone to bring their own bag, forcing people to recycle bag use. Pretty smart. Plus, some of the re-useable totes are super cute and funky. I bought like 8 of them in Paris. Shut-up--I shared with friends.
I especially love this one for it's vintage print and it's cute little carrying pouch, all made from water-based inks and organic cotton. $20
