From the Chicago Tribune:
Green is the new black –in grocery bags
By Jane Meredith Adams
“They’re not just being banned from large grocery stores here — which a new law mandates will happen before it’s time to buy a Thanksgiving turkey — but out as in outmoded……”
Our Utility Tote to be THE bag for grocery shopping. It has a zippered pocket for your wallet and a key snap for your keys, and is sophisticated enough to use as an everyday bag. It’s more than strong enough to carry a heavy load of groceries (the soft, comfortable handles won’t dig into your shoulder), and the inside has a coating that makes it water and stain resistant. Should your salad bar container leak, the Utility Tote can be easily hand-washed or wiped out and dries quickly.
I keep a Utility Tote in the car at all times: its wide opening makes it easy to toss miscellaneous stuff in, and if I go to the grocery store and forget my dedicated grocery shopping Utility Tote, I have a back-up –there’s no excuse not to use my own bag.
