December 12, 2022

Eco-Friendly Tote bagsTote bags are a hot fashion accessory, and it looks like that trend is going to carry over into 2023 and beyond. Tote bags are great, multifunctional bags that you can carry anywhere, and that will hold almost anything. Larger than a standard purse, tote bags can double as a briefcase, diaper bag, reusable shopping bag, and much more. For children, tote bags are also trending in popularity to use to carry their books, toys, wet swimwear and more!  By reusing bags, you are reducing waste that litters our landfills and oceans, and are reducing your personal carbon footprint. It’s a small act that makes a big impact on the environment. 

What is even better than the tote bag trend is the increasing trend toward eco-friendly bags. Many brands are embracing eco-friendly fabrics and materials, and are opting for a more sustainable and ethical way of manufacturing and shipping products. At TuTu’s Green World, we are on board with this trend! Take a look below at our 10 picks for eco-friendly tote bags you need for 2023 and beyond.
