Going Green at the Grocery Store

April 17, 2015

Going green at the grocery store is becoming law in cities and towns throughout the United States. From San Francisco, Calif., to Cambridge, Mass., local governments are banning plastic bags at supermarkets and retailers and requiring businesses to charge a nominal fee for paper bags. It’s an exciting move toward sustainability — and we’ve got the perfect line of reusable bags to help you make the switch: ChicoBag!


With so many awesome options, it’s hard to choose just one, but the Vita might be our favorite right now. It’s comfy on the shoulder, has a handy clip and tiny stuff sack to keep it close at hand (instead of always forgetting it at home!), and there are all sorts of colors, designs, and recycled options!
