Want to do your part to help the planet? Try using a reusable grocery bag. This cute organic shopper by Stella McCartney retails for just $495. Or, if that’s not quite your style, check out the bag designed by
Consuelo Castiglioni of Marni. $843 for a nylon bag… what a steal! Still haven’t seen anything that tickles your fancy? Well, if you can hold out until later this summer, the one & only Hermes will be introducing their own version of the reusable grocery sack… made of hand-wrought silk, it collapses into a wallet-size pouch of calfskin. At just $960 it’s a must-have for every grocery shopper. Or, perhaps you might be interested in Anya Hinmarch’s “I’m not a plastic bag” available here in the US, on a pre-order basis, in June. At $15 a piece, this might be more up your alley. The problem will be getting one! They are sold out everywhere. I’ve heard they’re even selling on ebay for 10x the original price!
So here’s the thing… I don’t know about you, but when I go to the grocery store, I don’t leave with just one bag. I leave with like 10 or 15. So, is this truly feasible? Honestly?! Even if I bought the Trader Joe’s specials for a buck 99, it could definitely get expensive. Then, where would you store them all? I might have think some more about this one.
