Now you can shop in style with your fashionable reusable shopping bags! I have designed this bag to be just perfect: not too big, not to small, not too heavy, not too light. The straps are the perfect length and width for carrying on your shoulder. It has a perfect-size pocket on the front for storing keys, wallet, cell phone, etc. while you are out shopping.

I designed this bag after several years of walking and/or riding the bus to the grocery store (with kids in tow). I've tried many different sizes and shapes of reusable shopping bags, and this is the best. It is large enough to easily fit the amount of groceries that you would put in 3-4 plastic shopping bags, but not too big to be loaded so heavy that you can't carry it (unless you load it full of cans!). The straps are just the right length to throw on my shoulder, and wide enough so they won't cut painfully into my shoulder on the trek back home. I had a tendency to throw my keys and wallet in the bottom of the bag, then I had to furiously search for them under all the groceries when finished shopping. I added the front pocket to avoid this problem!

Even if you aren't walking to the store, you'll find that these bags are more convenient for several reasons. This bag will hold much more than the plastic shopping bag, so that means fewer trips from your car to house when bringing in your groceries. And you won't have the bother of storing and recycling all those plastic bags (or the guilt of just throwing them in the trash). You might even get a five or ten-cent discount from your local shops for using your bags. And you will just sleep better at night, knowing that you are doing your part to eliminate the use-it-once-and-throw-it-away mentality. Do you always forget to bring your bags when you go shopping? Keep them in a visible spot, like a hook by the door, so you will remember to bring them with you when you leave (or just keep them in the car). Soon it will be such a habit that you won't leave home without them!

This bag is constructed with strong 100% cotton canvas fabric. It is a medium weight, so it is not super heavy, but still strong and durable. The construction is strong with reinforced seams. The print features wild flowers on a charteuse (lime) background. On the occasion that it needs to be washed, please wash it in cold water and hang to dry, or it will shrink! Not to worry, I have included a tag to remind you of the care instructions.

I have bags in lots of other prints, check out my shop to see more!

Measurements are as follows: 16 inches tall, 13 inches wide, 5 inches deep. The top edge stretched out is 18 inches across. The pocket is 7 inches square. The straps are 24 inches long (from the top edge of the bag) and 1.5 inches wide.
