BYOB takes on a different meaning with this company. It stands for Bring Your Own Bag, which very appropriately fits into the whole movement of reducing plastic bags that was in full force this summer. Of course, there are many debates about whether making a whole bunch of new reusable bags instead of using whatever you already have at home is actually that eco-friendly. But debates aside, there is a certain lust factor built into some well made, good looking, recyclable sacs out there. I must confess that I fell in love with my first 99cent reusable bag (pictured right) a couple of weeks ago when I discovered it at this local grocery store, Galati. It's definitely the best looking one I've seen being sold at major supermarkets in Toronto. It's roomy and even has a little zipper compartment for your loose change or receipts on the side! And most importantly, it's not splattered with advertising & logos. But, if you can't find a Galati near you, BYOB makes a whole line of natural and organic cotton sacs for your everyday shopping. (This is the company that made the 99cent Galati bag) They're a Canadian company - bonus! And I do love their kitschy eco-conscious graphics. My fav is the windmill bag (pictured right). At $35 and made with organic cotton, it's certainly lust-worthy. Lastly, whether you decide to get a new bag or reuse an old one, remember to BYOB!
