|Written by Heleigh Bostwick Friday, 25 May 2012|
Whether youíre looking for a tote for the grocery store or a tote to carry your gardening tools and accessories in, here are The Daily Dirtís top picks for eco-friendly tote bags.
1. Blue Q Bouquet Handy Tote
My personal favorite, even though itís not a gardening bag per se is the Blue Q Bouquet Handy Tote pictured above. Waterproof, easy to clean, and made from 95-percent post-consumer recycled material, plus 1-percent of the sale of this bag will support the conservation work of the nature conservancy.
2. Everything Fits Recycled Yoga or Gym Bag
Love the bright green color but donít like that itís made in China. Nonetheless, this stylish yet functional Gaiam Everything Fits Eco-Friendly Recycled Gym Bag (Black) is made from 100% recycled polyester with polyester mesh and has a compartment for clothes, a pocket that holds shoes and a bottom elastic band for a yoga mat.
3. Shopping Tote that folds into a strawberry!
Although this Reusable shopping tote that folds into a strawberry isn't made from recycled materials, it is reusable eliminating the need for using plastic bags.
4. Keep Calm and Carry On Tote Bag
Need I say more? Made of sturdy cotton canvas. Measures 15 in. x 15 in.
5. Lemon Yellow Greengrocer Shopper Bag
Sturdy, useful, and bright yellow, if you're looking for a bright, bold color, you canít go wrong with this bag from Envirosax!
