Why Everyone Should Have A Reusable Tote

I’m sure you’ve started to see reusable canvas tote bags in the grocery line, at your local convenience store, and at your local farmer’s market. You might be wondering, why? What’s so exciting about this new shopping trend, and should you get in on it?

We’re here to tell you that the answer is yes. A reusable tote bag will make your life easier, make the planet better, and, as a bonus, you’ll look cute carrying it! Here are five reasons why you should buy a reusable canvas tote bag today.


It’s Better For The Planet


At Northwind, we offer eco-friendly and high-quality pieces that you can feel good about buying. Now, our reusable canvas shopper bag will help you cut down on plastic bags!

According to Waste Management Northwest, plastic bags kill an estimated 100,000 marine animals per year. And they make it harder to recycle--according to Business Insider, improperly recycled plastic bags can clog up the machinery at recycling plants. 

With our reusable tote bag for groceries, you can sidestep that problem entirely. Just bring your Northwind canvas tote bag to the store. Now you can feel good about your environmental impact every time you shop!


Declutter Your Life

Sometimes it seems like the whole world is trying to stop you from living an organized life. Suddenly you find that your living space is full of items you don’t actually need. Plastic bags are the perfect example. How many times have you taken plastic bags home from the grocery store and saved them with the intention of re-using them, only to find them in the most inconvenient places when you’re trying to tidy up?


With our canvas shopping bag, you can say goodbye to those plastic bags forever. Now, you’ll have a single reusable tote bag for groceries, instead of what seems like hundreds of plastic bags cluttering up your life. Take the first step towards a more organized life today with our canvas shopping bag!


Durable Materials


Is there anything that can ruin your day faster than a broken grocery bag? Paper and plastic are not known for their durability, so if you’re carrying a heavy bag of groceries, sometimes the bottom will drop out, spilling your purchases everywhere.

Even if they don’t break, paper and plastic bags can leak all over your car or house if something spills inside the bag, and you have to load and unload them carefully. Overall, it’s a hassle.


Our reusable tote bag for groceries is an investment in an easier life. At Northwind, we use only the best materials and have selected a sturdy, water-resistant canvas for these tote canvas shopper bags.

That means the bottom won’t fall out, your space will be protected from spills within the bag, and it’s much easier to load and unload. Invest in a canvas tote bag that will make your life easier every day.


We’ll Make It Stylish


So, we’ve convinced you that you need a reusable tote bag for groceries. But which one do you choose? There’s no shortage of unattractive tote bags made from cheap materials on the market, but we both know that’s not going to cut it.

If you’re going to invest in a tote bag that you might use every day, you want something stylish and attractive, made from high-quality materials that are worth the investment.


Our canvas shopping bags come in Pine and Birch, two beautiful colors inspired by the natural beauty of Minnesota’s north woods. We also offer vegetable-tanned leather accents to add a touch of class to your canvas shopper bag. And, best of all, you can personalize your purchase with up to three characters, so it will be truly unique!
