Shopping bags from recycled newspaper

Using lightweight, reusable shopping bags made of recycled materials is pretty standard practice these days, but it's nice when bags you use all the time have a bit of style too. I like these bags made of recycled newspaper (from the Arts and Leisure section, so they're colorful too). They're made to be water resistant and have double straps and velcro closure. At $52 each, they're not cheap, but if you use the same one for years of trips to the farmer's market, the grocery store, and the library, then the per use cost could be almost nothing. And each one is unique.

Wallets of similar design are $30 each. Both are available at Uncommon Goods.
