I have officially indulged the no-plastic bag wave – except for one major hurdle. I kept forgetting them at home.

Solution! I finally started tucking away the little compact nylon versions in my car and bigger purses – and best of all I found some durable cotton ones with images & messages that kick. So much so that they inspire me to remember to bring them everywhere.

With BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag) versions, I can express myself as both cheeky and environmental. I’m toting this “F*@k Plastic” in natural, but as a bonus the black is organic cotton.

Another one of their best sellers is this satchel. It features a kitsch burst of recycled vintage fabric (aka also a sustainable point) and is reversible. Big buttons are starting to pop up as a spring trend – makes sense this bag would pop one for of detail as part of it’s convenient side pocket.

Stock up gals, BYOB bags are sustainable, stylish, and carry a message. These bags will stay beyond a trend.
