Earth Day falls on 22 April, and if you're still hoarding plastic bags and using them while you shop – you should do Mother Earth a favour and swap them for reusable shopping tote bags. Why not? Reusable shopping tote bags look cute while saving the world.
Reusable bags may not be a permanent solution (unless policies ban single-use plastic bags start to kick in), but you can start by adopting a zero-waste lifestyle and continue your grocery shopping with a green conscience.
Here are some of the best and most conscious shopping bags we found online.
