You know that deliciously satisfying feeling, when you’re walking out of a store, arms full of bags simply packed with the day’s purchases? Red lines engrave themselves into the creases of your elbows and the tingle in your fingers reminds you to readjust the sweet deals hanging from your limbs as you fumble for the house key. The scars of a successful hunt.
You finally get in the front door and lay out the finds on your bed as you decide what tomorrow’s outfit will be. And those bags? All the patterned pink plastics and printed papers might find themselves in the trash.
Many retailers are encouraging shoppers to bring their own bags by charging a small fee for the plastic or paper. Others are taking steps to ensure reusability by creating sturdy fabric bags, perfect for tomorrow’s work-out, or bag-lunch. Sometimes, however, these reusable bags are covered with big, bold branding that will never match your cute red flats. The solution? A boho bag.
