Thinking of ways to be more greenerous? (think generous and green, all at once). Use a shopping tote. In case you haven’t already figure out the whys…
1. Your great, great, great, great…grandkids : According to the research found online plastic bags take anywhere from 500 to 1000 years to decompose. Even though we’ll be dead and gone by then, it’s kind of selfish to leave all this mess for our great, great, great (you get the point), isn’t it?
2. Room to shop: They carry more! Totes are usually bigger and more durable so you can really pack it in there. Carry another tote in your empty one, so you can have two just in case you get carried away (no pun intended.)
3. Totes and passion are now in fashion: You can find trendy totes everywhere. Even Marc Jacobs
(we found it on ebay) has a pretty cute tote with their logo slapped right on front. Buy one at your favorite shop, get them in your favorite color and get your green on.
