BYOB: Bring Your Own Bag

Story by Audrey Heitmann / @a_documentaudrey

You’ve probably already heard this, but plastic is … bad. Not only does it negatively impact our environment, but it also affects your look. Stores are in the process of completely eliminating their use of plastic bags, and encouraging customers to bring their own. Why sacrifice a perfectly good outfit by literally carrying trash? Wouldn’t you much rather hold onto something that won’t break at a moment’s notice? It’s time to take this trend home, and carry it with you wherever you go. Here are some bags that’ll make you want to shop more than you already do:
