Alternatives To The Sold-Out "I'm Not A Plastic Bag" Tote

— August 11, 2007 — Eco
OK, so you couldn't get your manicured fingers on a "I'm not a plastic bag" tote, but that doesn't mean you can't have an eco-friendly, fashionable shopping bag. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out the links below.)

Designers were quick to come up with their own range after the popular Anya Hindmarch bag flew off shelves the world over. Here are a few options:

"Friends of Al" tote - Stay hip and promote awareness of global warming with the white and green canvas bag with magentic closure. It's $55, but for a good cause. Friends of Al will donate $25 to eco-friendly charities and $10 toward American Forests who will plant 10 trees per purchase. (

Stella McCartney - A higher-end version for a few more bucks; it's made of organic canvas and is selling for $500 US

Marni - The grocery tote by Consuelo Castiglioni is selling for $843 US.

Hermes - The priciest way you can lend a helping hand to the environment through fashion: the Silky Pop bag is made of gorgeous red and pink silk, folds up to be smaller than a CD, and is available for a wallet-breaking $1,225 CAD.
