Even though we are strong believers that every day should be Earth Day, eco-friendly choices are not always evident, given all of the dirty greenwashing one must sort through to garner truly green tips. Consumers are also rightly confused by the plethora of reusable shopping bag options, some of which seem like marketing tactics or unnecessary gear. Timbuk2 is making a difference, though, with their smartly-designed ‘hidden’ totes and backpacks for shopping and hauling your necessities around town. Given their lightweight and compact, zip-away packability and the PET recycled fabrics used in their design, we think that these chic green sacs are an ideal way to shop while also looking sustainably stylish.
It’s great to be organized and pro-active about bringing your own shopping bags to the store, but sometimes the need for last minute groceries leaves us without our favorite canvas tote or recycled sacs. Enter Timbuk2 hidden totes and backpacks made from durable, recycled rip stop fabric. The color options are totally hip and fresh, and the zip boot allows for easy packability for travel or effortless hauls.
Each tote or backpack is strongly-constructed out of 90% recycled fabric and is 100% machine washable. Couple this smart Earth month shopping investment with awareness of the ‘dirty dozen’ list of fruits and vegetables containing the highest levels of pesticides, and you are on your way to a greener and cleaner home and lighter footprint for all.
