In my attempt to be greener and more conscious of how much I use plastic bags, I bought a bunch of recyclable bags from smaller (not very useful but looks good) to large travel-sized ones. I use them when I have them – I keep one big one folded in my day bag. But I sometimes go shopping without my bag and then when I am at the checkout counter, I realize I forgot my ‘green’ bags. I’m just always a step behind.
I like this nylon tote from D&G for a bunch of reasons. It’s grey and this color works all year round. It comes with a handy smaller pouch for receipts, cash, credit cards and everything else. And the shoulder strap will be a god-send when you are running around town trying to get everything done. One thing lacking about most recyclable bags is that they don’t have shoulder straps or offer hands-free support.
The fact that this folds and packs easily means you can take this everywhere with you and try to use less. Get this D&G Packable Nylon Tote for US$195 at Bloomingdale’s.
