Reusable Grocery Totes

Starting on July 1st, the city of Seattle banned plastic shopping bags and is instituting a five cent fee on paper bags as a measure to encourage the use of reusable shopping bags and lessen unnecessary waste. I say way to go Seattle!

Maybe I'm super weird with this but, I always feel bad having Trader Joe's bag my groceries in a tote that says Whole Foods on it and vice versa. I think it feels a bit like bringing your own food to a restaurant. Anyone agree or am I the only one? Here are some great bag options I'd be happy to take to any store!

These market tote bags can be thrown in the washing machine. 

Take reusable bags one step further with reusable produce bags.  


  1. Well I'm gonna kind of miss those little plastic bags... just sayin... thanks for the cute alternatives. I pledge to not leave them all in my trunk.. haha.

    1. I do the same thing. Hopefully that five cent charge per paper bag will be enough to motivate me to walk back across the parking lot to grab my bags!

  2. My favorite totes are Libby Green,
