Single-use plastic bags have received a lot of scrutiny in recent years because of their horrendous impact on wildlife and the environment.
Many people are opting to use canvas tote bags instead of single-use plastic bags when they do their grocery shopping.
If you’re only using your canvas bags for groceries, though, you’re missing out!
Canvas bags have an endless list of potential uses. Here are seven ways that canvas shopping bags can come in handy.
1. Beach Bag
Is it time to get away from it all and spend a day lounging on the sand?
Using canvas shopping bags as beach bags is a great way to bring everything you need to have a fun day in the sun. Towels, sunscreen, a great book, and a water bottle can all fit easily into your beach tote bag
2. Gym Bag
Whether you’re heading to the gym to do some weightlifting, cardio, or a yoga class, a canvas tote bag is super useful as a gym bag.
You can stash your wallet, car keys, and phone in small interior pockets. Bring along your water bottle, change of clothes, and gym shoes so you’re prepared to have a great workout.
3. Car Emergency Bag
Keeping an extra tote bag in your car with emergency supplies is a great way to plan for the unexpected occurrences of life.
If you or one of your loved ones is ever stranded due to a car problem, you’ll be glad you had the foresight to create an emergency bag. Feel free to tailor this bag to your own needs, but be sure to include a portable cell phone charger, jumper cables, folding shovel, first aid kit, and emergency blankets.
If you live in a northern climate with wintery weather, make sure your emergency bag also has a couple of hats and pairs of warm gloves and socks.
4. Gift Bag
Rather than using a disposable gift bag, fill a canvas tote bag with goodies as a way of showing someone your appreciation! They're also great for making swag bags for an event.
Whether it’s your friend’s birthday or you want to say thank you to your kid’s teachers, this is a great and original way of giving a gift. If you don’t know the person very well, things like gourmet coffee, chocolates, and luxury bath products are always a win!
5. Freelance Bag
Do you need to get out of the house to get some work done?
Grab your laptop, a notebook, pen, your phone, and chargers and load them into your canvas tote. This is a great way to transport everything you need to be productive at the library or a coffee shop.
6. Toy Bag
Canvas totes are a great way to store kids' toys that tend to end up all over the place. You can even teach your kids to always put their toys back in the tote when they’re done playing. Every kid needs a sturdy canvas tote bag to keep their toys organized.
7. Laundry Bag
Extra-large tote bags can be a great way to transport your dirty laundry to the laundromat.
Use the small pockets for quarters, dryer sheets, and a bag of detergent. Canvas laundry bags are great investment for any home, college students and more!
