8 Totes That Double Up As A Style Statement Because It's Time To Say No To Plastic!

8 Totes That Double Up As A Style Statement Because It's Time To Say No To Plastic!

A plastic bag takes 1000 years to decompose, and yet most of us throw them away after a single use. If I do manage to reuse them, they barely last and often make a home at the corner of some sad alley. I often ponder over this and feel guilty about later. 

A few months ago, Mumbai made the wise decision of banning the use of plastic bags in the city because of the ecological and environmental harm it was causing. This decision escalated my guilt every time a general store or my local vegetable vendor gave me my groceries in a plastic bag. Because in both the cities I reside in, Delhi and Chennai, there is no ban on the use of plastic. 

Instead of carrying heavy groceries in flimsy plastic bags, I finally made the conscious decision of taking along my own cloth tote bag every time I step out to shop. This also gave me the chance to turn my grocery shopping bag into a style statement. Here are my top picks of easy to use totes that will double up as quirky accessories.
