Where I live, on January 1st 2012, shops will no longer be allowed to give you plastic shopping bags.
A lot of the retailers are going to try to get you to buy an equally earth destroying amount of crappy 99 cent net or poorly made canvas bags. They will assume you will forget the 5$ worth you bought last time to cart your groceries home in and sell you a new set, soon you will end up with a closet full of poorly made, torn grocery bags. Eventually you will chuck them. They will end up in landfills, where they will biodegrade faster than plastic obviously, but they still have a pretty high plastic content (a lot of them are "coated" on the inside or made from part nylon, which, HELLO? is a plastic!) and will represent a lot of money you chucked out into a landfill.
The Solution? A really NICE grocery tote! A sturdy, well made cotton canvas bag with a nice graphic (by me, of course!) that you will remember to take with you, care enough about not to leave on the bus, and if that sad day comes when it somehow gets a tear in it, feel it's worth the effort of stitching up!
Plus today you can stock up and save in a big way on totes!
Besides the every day bulk discount (which applies to mix and match, you don't have to get all the same design to save), today you can get 50% your bags with coupon code FINALHOLIDAY entered at checkout.
Plus there's still time to get them delivered by Christmas! (they make great gifts)
So without further ado, here's what I have up SO FAR, I plan on getting more up and will quick post them as they happen to the Fb Fan Page, G+ and twitter, and if you have a request for any of my art on a bag leave a comment below and I will add it to the list of bag designs I am working on. (I'll make every effort to get requests up in time to take advantage of the coupon code so they will go to the top of the list)
