We can all agree that plastic is the ultimate enemy, but this Plastic-Free July, here’s what you should know each time you opt for a single-use bag that holds your groceries. The utility of this bag is an average of only twenty-five minutes, but it’s lifespan could span up to five hundred years. One million plastic-bags are used every minute by the human population, and if that doesn’t tug at your heartstrings, there’s no shying away from the fact that it isn’t doing much for your fashion game.
Aside from the atrocious visible impact in the natural world, single-use plastic may be more damaging than we account for. The ‘use and throw’ mentality it enforces with every indolent decision has led to the normalisation of an excessive lifestyle. The simplest way to combat a habit is to replace it with a positive one.
Meet out trusty Totes that will take you from work to errands to coffee catch-ups. Think of them as beautiful catch-alls for the discerning eye of the conscious shopper. It starts (quite literally) at home.
The focal point of your look, this reversible hobo bag is made with colourful fabric scraps and wooden handles for a relaxed afternoon out.
Representing equal love with a quirky geometrical heart, this straight-shooter is as functional as it is versatile. Whether it’s the gym or a quick shopping trip, you’ll never have your hands full.
