An Inconveniently Convenient Bag

I have always had a thing for fabulous handbags. Last year, when it became uncool to use environmentally unfriendly plastic and paper grocery bags, I suddenly started collecting reusable, canvas grocery bags. Last season I was obsessed with the I'm Not A Plastic Bag statement tote and this year I'm crazy about The Inconvenient Bag ($19.99) carryall.

Neither paper nor plastic, this large canvas tote — available in four different designs — is the size of a normal, brown grocery bag and can hold up to 45 pounds. The bags are made in LA from biodegradable cotton and non-toxic dyes. While it may not be as convenient as carrying groceries home in paper or plastic, toting my food in the inconvenient bag, makes me feel like I'm doing my part to help save the world.

If you don't have a reusable tote, I highly recommend this fun, fashionable, eco-friendly bag!

so cute!!!! I use the bags that stop and shop sell. They aren't quite canvas, but they are pretty strong. I love them. Not only am I not wasting plastic, but they hold more groceries so I don't have to make so many trips out to my car!

totally cute! But it is pretty inconvenient for me, because I'm on the other coast(NY)!

Very cute. Canvas bags are not only good for the environment, but they must be practical too. I mean, they've got to be stronger than paper bags!

Why not just make your own canvas bags. Most fabric stores have some decent looking canvas and it is a pretty simple 7th grade home ec sewing project. Why pay $20?

I've got a collection of the 99 cent-ers as well. Cheap is good!

It's hard for me to pay twenty bucks for these (even though they're really cute) when the ones they sell now at all the grocery stores cost 99 cents.

Very cute, I use whatever tote bag I can find. They not only help the environment, but they make it so much easier to carry your groceries, especially if you live 7 blocks from the subway and up a hill!
