skn Organic Cotton Totes: Shop With Style and some Earth-friendly Sense

04/22/2009 at 03:30 PM ET

My bag addiction is not limited to designer clutches and diaper bags. In fact, after making a New Year’s resolution two years ago to carry reusable bags with me every time I did my grocery shopping, one could argue that reusable grocery bags are my biggest addiction yet. The organic cotton totes from SKN are right up my alley.

Made from 100% U.S.-certified organic cotton, SKN organic cotton totes hold up to 40lbs, stand open for easy packing and fold flat for easy storage. More importantly, they are beautiful bags which are available in five ultra-cool designs: Carrot, Blueberry, Tomato, Lemon and Asparagus.

As if it’s not enough that one SKN bag replaces about 330 bags per year, SKN will also plant a tree through American Forests’ Global ReLeaf program for every tote you purchase.

At $35, this is one designer bag you can’t afford not to buy.

Actually you can afford to not buy this bag. Most stores now sell pretty bags of their own for about $0.99 and they do the same thing. I’m a huge fan of cloth bags (i even get points in my local food store for using cloth bag) and they are mostly very pretty. $35 for a cloth bag is little too much for average person’s budget

that code doesn’t work for online orders!


Jenny from getskn says it works on their end – make sure you’re typing “baby blog” all lowercase with a space in between. Hopefully that helps.

$35 for a bag? Ouch. I didn’t spend $35 TOTAL on my HUGE re-usables collection (I didn’t even spend half that). I love the re-usables at Whole Foods Market 99 cents each and if the bag falls apart during normal use you can take it back to Whole Foods for a new one 🙂 PLUS each time you use it at Whole Foods you get 50 cents off PER bag. 2 uses the bag was free can’t beat that with a stick. 😉 So I’ll stick with my Whole Foods bags.

I don’t own this bag but I buy canvas bags online (usually from and do think there are a number of reasons to buy them over the store-brand ones that are $0.99. For one, the store-brand ones break easily (this bag purports to hold 40lbs of grocerys but the ones I buy hold at least 25lbs and trust me, I have tested it, lol) and also, I hate being a walking advertisement for my local grocery store. I do NOT buy their bags when they have the name of the store on them!!!

I make my own bags from old tshirts. Martha Stewart has a video on how to do it on her site. Nothing’s more green than reusing an old, stained shirt for a grocery bag, nothing.
