It has become quite fashionable to want to save the world and the environment any more. This is a trend that I can only hope that makes its way into the everyday mode, much like the jeans did so long ago. One big thing is the overwhelming presence of the plastic bag. The plastic bag does not decompose like paper or even textiles. As of yet, there is nothing that is going to eat away at these bags. In addition, in order for these bags to be made, oil has to be used in the mix. With the oil spill from the well in the Gulf of Mexico, many people are shying away from things that require crude oil in their production.
The canvas bag is helping to replace the plastic bag. It is an eco-friendly method of carrying products out of the store and into the home. They are sturdy and durable, making these bags able to hold their shapes better and carry more weight. In addition, these bags are washable and re-usable. They even come in the latest fashionable looks!
Fashion canvas totes appeared as soon as the functional totes did. These totes sport cute sayings like Wal-Mart’s “Paper or Plastic? Neither.” And Save-a-Lot’s “Save some Green” with a tree under it and money as leaves. These totes can also feature cute designs that work well with a person’s outfit.
There are even fashion totes that allow you to further personalize them. These totes can be found in the craft stores, ready to be beaded or stitched to the individual’s specific plans and desires. When doing this though, know when to stop. The tote does not have to be crazy to be good for the environment and fashionable.
The canvas tote has also been known to inspire very expensive totes. This includes the Louis Vuitton “That’s Love” Canvas tote. This tote carries a whopping price tag of $1720, but has the same boxy design and construction of the $.99 cent totes that you can buy at Wal-Mart. This is just a show of how popular and how fashionable these totes have become.
