If there’s one thing island residents love, it’s reusable grocery bags! Reusable anything, for that matter – but check out these totes!

Between the bags at checkout, and the bags for produce, and the extra wrapping around meat, plastic bags really add up with just one grocery trip. We originally switched to using paper bags, and then decided to use reusable totes only. Turns out, we even get a discount for bringing our own bags!

About two million plastic bags are used per minute around the world. Crazy isn’t it? We all know that our oceans are polluted; but living by the water gives us a daily reminder of where our trash ends up. So, we’ve taken one small step to make a difference. And we think that we will save 780 plastic bags this year, from our little family alone.

You can and should read more about pollution and how you can make a difference, here!

Why not make a difference in style?

Not only do these totes fit right in with the rest of our nautical accessories, but I love that they fold flat, and store away easily in the car. The trick to using reusable totes at the store is to always keep them in your trunk! It took a while, but I finally learned that one the hard way…

Not only are they earth friendly, but they have great strong handles, and come in a variety of designs! One bag held two gallons of milk and a juice… so we know they are great quality. You can get a few different sizes, and two large and one small tote were perfect for our weekly trip to the store.
