I’m sure that by now you’ve heard all about the value and importance of bringing your own reusable bags for groceries and other purchases to the store with you. Apart from all of the environmental benefits to bringing your own bags, there is always that one other little thing that never seems to elude me – fashion. Yes, bringing your own bags to the store is a fun way of self-expression, and is also a way to showcase your inner fashionista. I personally have an interesting collection of reusable bags – no two are alike, and they are all very “me”. Pretty patterns, humorous sayings in French (Les Fruits sont nos amis! Bah, oui, mais on ne mange pas nos amis…), and fun colors make up my collection (and make me smile after standing in long lines with a very impatient toddler).
I recently happened upon these great reusable bags from skeeda, and I am hooked! These bags are stylish, roomy, and sturdy — I fit two half-gallons of organic milk, a box of cereal, and a few other things all in my skeeda bag on a quick trip into the store yesterday. I told the lady at the checkout that I had my own bag, and pulled out my bag in Eggshell print (I love blues and browns together!), and she immediately oohed and ahhed over what a “pretty” bag it was! Take that, paper and plastic!
Skeeda bags come in a variety of patterns and colors, and will normally run you $15 a pop, though if you use the code “chicshopper” you will save $5 off every order! Skeeda claims to be the bag for the hip, eco-chic shopper – and seeing as how i’m a “Chic Shopper” I’m inclined to agree!
