An Eco-Friendly and Cute Way to Cart Your Groceries Around
For every of these stylish bags sold, lifestyle brand rockflowerpaper will donate money to the nonprofit Ocean Conservancy.
We already know that carrying reusable bags is far better for the environment than the disposable plastic alternatives (one plastic bag can take 1,000 years to disintegrate), but the new Blu Bags [$9.95 each or $27.50 for a coordinating pack of three] from lifestyle brand rockflowerpaper also are undeniably cute.
The bold, cheerful designs on the bags include lobsters, flowers, cabana stripes, ikat patterns and more. The machine washable sacks hold up to 50 pounds, so there’s a low risk of heavier groceries (or whatever you choose to carry in the bag) busting through, as can occasionally happen with the plastic versions.
If you’re not yet feeling good enough about yourself for carrying such an ecologically responsible — and cute — bag, here’s another reason to give yourself a pat on the back: Rockflowerpaper will donate 20 cents per bag sold, (a minimum of $50,000 over three years) to benefit Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit that aims to find sustainable solutions for the ocean’s biggest threats.
