Etsy roundup: Cute reusable shopping bags

Reduce, reuse, re-cute!

Let’s face it — there’s nothing cute about plastic shopping bags when they wind up in a landfill. Our dependence on the ugly little oil-based baggies is so unhealthy for the environment, some cities like Austin, Texas have instated an all-out ban on plastic bags being handed out by retailers. Besides, reusable bags are more chic. Here are a few of our favorites we found on Etsy to get the eco swing in your step.

Reduce, reuse, re-cute!

Our dependence on the ugly little oil-based baggies is so unhealthy for the environment, some cities like Austin, Texas have instated an all-out ban on plastic bags being handed out by retailers. Besides, reusable bags are more chic. Here are a few of our favorites we found on Etsy to get the eco swing in your step.

The statement bag

Plastic sucks statement bag

Forget the designer statement bag of yore — this printed tote from Etsy shop bonesbags is just as cute and there's simply no confusing its message. If you've banished plastic bags from your life, let the world know! Maybe you'll even inspire your fellow shoppers to ditch the plastic bag habit themselves. After all, plastic bags suck.

What the fork

You might have already made your way to the market, but this bag is perfect for those days when you're feeling sassy, yet unsure. This washable tote from Etsy shop GraphyShack is perfect for grabbing fresh veggies at the local farmers market, where a little dirt never hurt. Hopefully this sassy sack will act as a reminder to make a decision on a meal once you're there.

Carrot carryall

Here's a reminder to stock up on more fresh fruits and veggies. This enormous screen printed carrot tote is almost the size of two average bags, meaning it has twice the carrying power. Made by Etsy shop owner ohlittlerabbit from recycled cotton, it also has a small carbon footprint, so you can feel good about your eco-friendly choices.

No wine-ing

Wine time bag

Really, there's no better way to keep calm than drinking a glass of wine. This adorable quirky wine tote from Etsy shop StitchStories reminds you of just that. If you have a stressful day at work, take this wine bag on your journey through the wine aisle. Soon, all of your troubles will melt away.

Secret sugary wishes

You might be using this bag to shop for veggies, but let the world know what you'd rather be eating. This baby blue number by Etsy shop RaineStyleHome is almost as pretty as a slice of cake, with frilly, girly goodness that looks super sweet!
