RuMe's reusable shopping bags are durable and pretty
In my small attempt to help the environment, I am trying to turn down plastic bags when I go shopping in favour of using my own canvas bag.
But the trouble with my canvas bag is it doesn't fit comfortably over my shoulder, or fit neatly inside my bag, so I've been casting around for an alternative.
These RuMe (short for "reuse me") bags are definitely on the shortlist. They come in a variety of styles and colours and are water-resistant and machine-washable. They also fold up to the size of a cellphone so you can always keep one with you for emergency shopping situations. More importantly, a portion of the proceeds of every bag is donated to a charitable cause.
$28.50 from Delight.
