The next time the clerk at your favorite grocery store asks whether you prefer “paper or plastic” for your purchases, consider giving the truly eco-friendly response and saying, “neither.”
If you’re looking for some cute reusable shopping totes for your groceries, a day at the beach or a trip to the store then check out these bags!
Reusable Bags Are a Better Option
But if you decline both paper and plastic bags, then how do you get your groceries home? The answer, according to many environmentalists, is high-quality reusable shopping bags made of materials that don’t harm the environment during production and don’t need to be discarded after each use.

Here are a few facts about plastic bags to help demonstrate the value of reusable bags—to consumers and the environment:
Plastic bags aren’t biodegradable. They actually go through a process called photodegradation—breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic particles that contaminate both soil and water, and end up entering the food chain when animals accidentally ingest them.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, more than 380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States every year. Of those, approximately 100 billion are plastic shopping bags, which cost retailers about $4 billion annually.
Marine mammals die every year after eating discarded plastic bags they mistake for food.
Discarded plastic bags have become so common in Africa they have spawned a cottage industry. People there collect the bags and use them to weave hats, bags and other goods. According to the BBC, one such group routinely collects 30,000 bags every month.
JUST SAY NO TO PLASTIC!!!
You’ll be helping to save the lives of animals and the environment when you carry a reusable shopping bag to the store. These totes is light weight, sturdy, and could possibly fit two bags worth of groceries.
