More and more of us are forgoing plastic grocery sacks and carrying our own reusable totes. After all, stashing a few in the car is often easier than remembering to take the eco-unfriendly plastic ones to a recycling bin.
And with Willobags from Kansas City, Mo.-based Willoughby Design, you can simultaneously promote style and sustainability. Each reusable Baggu bag, made from rip-stop, machine washable nylon, holds about as much as three disposable bags.
When not in use, the Willobag folds into a matching pouch, perfect for tucking into your purse. So no more excuses for forgetting to BYOB (bring your own bag).
The collection includes five designs with names so catchy you might make excuses to shop: ArtiTOTE, BAGnanas, TOTEmatoes, CabBAGe and CARROTall. $40 for a set of five, $10 each at www.willobag.com. Jocelyn Jacobson, McClatchy Newspapers
