Cities Banning Plastic Bags Encourage Canvas Bags Instead
Canvas bag designs make bag bans an opportunity for fashion
The Holidays are a time to make changes for the coming year. In the spirit of the season, many cities across the world have looked to take on the eco-friendly challenge of banning plastic bags at grocery stores and local shops, instead encouraging patrons to bring their own canvas bags to carry groceries.
Plastic bag bans are nothing new. Canvas bags have already caught on as the best way to carry groceries in many parts of the world, giving cities with newly minted bans something to admire. The accessories have made popular gifts with public radio and television; as door prizes for fundraisers and other marketing opportunities. But now, as plastic bag movements become reality in many cities, tote bags are looking to become the newest fashion trend.
For Students: Creative students returning to school after the Holidays may be looking for a great way to carry groceries, school books or even a laptop. But if the items at the bookstore don't strike your fancy, you can find your own canvas bag with a design more suited to your personality. With many fun designs to choose from, you are sure to go back to school in style.
For Gamers: Late-night gaming sessions mean a lot of late-night trips to the corner store for more battle snacks before jumping back into a new game. Have less impact on the environment when you head out on a snack run by bringing a canvas bag.
For Fashionistas: Tote bags are popular utilitarian bags for those days when a dressy purse just won't go. You can throw in a few things for the car, some work documents or your groceries and never look out of fashion. With cutting edge designs and simple, retro-style images, a simple tote can accentuate your casual style on days when you are dressing down but still dressing up.
