It’s Earth Day, friends! That means a day full of lights off, recycling, cold showers, and no TV. Sounds miserable actually, but it truly makes a difference, and being conscious for a day won’t kill you. :)
A really simple way to reduce your carbon footprint is to obviously use reusable bags instead of plastic whenever possible. Canvas totes are my absolute favorite way to gather all of my junk and clutter that overflows in my regular purses. I use them for grocery shopping, for work, and when traveling, and I recommend them to any girl who’s had it with regular handbags! What is a tote, you may ask?
Yup. Perfect for moms, teachers, fitness chicks, and pretty much anyone! I’ve rounded up my favorites canvas totes in honor of this lovely holiday. Which is your favorite??
Yeahhhhh, that’s a mouthful.
<3: Long handles are the BEST when it comes to canvas totes. They feel more “purse-like” and don’t rub against your shoulder painfully throughout the day. Even Reese Witherspoon totes one around! This amazing bag will last FOREVER. Plus if you sign up for their email newsletters, you get 20% off! Price: $37.50
<3: This tote is perfect to show off your hometown state! It’s adorable and eco-friendly; hand-made right here in the sunshine state of Colorado. Price $10.00
<3: Although I’ve never owned this tote, it is absolutely ADORABLE and the perfect size for packing for a sleepover. Something I love about J. Crew is their attention to detail, and these vintage brass accents do the trick. Price: $36.50
<3: Where would this list be without the mother of all canvas totes?? Lands’ End is renowned for their durable, inexpensive canvas bags that never go out of style. My favorite (I order one every other year to switch things up) is the large natural open top. If you’re going to be toting around expensive property though, I’d recommend getting the one that zips up. Definitely splurge the 6 bucks for the monogram, too, it makes your tote feel personalized! Price: $30.50
Now go ride your bike to work or something and show off your new canvas TOTE. Cheers!
