We Are What We Do

It’s aspirational. Bought this Anya Hindmarch* “I am not a plastic bag” tote in navy this morning on ebay. I would have loved it more if I could have picked it up for $15.00 back when it was originally sold in 2007, but $36 for this Anya-loving (she knows me: “you have a very intimate relationship with a handbag”), large-sized tote, going green-ish girl works for me.

The history of the tote is here, at We Are What We Do, “a global movement that inspires people to use their everyday behaviour to affect big environmental and social issues.” I love the focus on intergenerational communication – I’ll touch on that another day.

anyahindmarch ukIf you would like to consider a less expensive replace-a-plastic-bag-or-167 option, Target sells a number of reusable shopping bags; the Flip & Tumble Reusable Tote is sold online for $6.98 – $9.98 and are worth a look, although most colors are sold out.

And here’s a shout-out to ReusableBags.com which features a great selection of totes.
