A 2014 study of U.S. consumers found that the 28% of respondents who own of reusable bags forgot them on approximately 40% of their grocery trips and used them only about 15 times each before being discarded. About half of this group typically chose to use plastic bags over reusable ones, despite owning reusable bags and recognizing their benefits. An increasing number of jurisdictions have mandated the phase-out of lightweight plastic bags to reduce land and ocean pollution. In order to provide an incentive for consumers to remember reusable bags more often these laws establish a minimum price for bags at checkout and require either paper, reusable fabric tote bags, or thick reusable plastic bags. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/6d/90/75/6d90751afabe190421a9ba53830fa2f2.jpg
I have 4 products that I have used intermittently. By no means were they used every day and by no means were they harshly used. One product was barely used. I now have 2 out of 4 products that are failing. The inside plasticy lining of my very small utility bag is cracking and disintegrating. Obviously a poor plastic material that does not hold up. Which is fine, then don't charge me a fortune if it is going to fall apart. I have an organizing tote with zipper, hardly used. Used it the most for one week at the beach. The entire seam has separated leaving a gapping hole in the bottom. The bag is useless now. Contacted customer service and was told only 90 days. Your products should be expected to hold up more than 90 days, especially for the price. Will not buy again. I have had LLBEAN and Lands End bags warrantied FOREVER and I have used Vera Bradley purses and bags, every single day for years with only wearing of the material noticed on the handle. Mind you, I said "wearing down" not completely falling apart or broken! This company is a cheap, trendy home party that makes very poor quality products that are sold at high prices so all the people in the chain can get their profit. Tupperware has full lifetime replacement for free!!!
Recently, tote bags have been sold as a more eco-friendly replacement for disposable plastic bags given they can be reused multiples times. They have also been given away as promotional items. A study by the UK Environment Agency found that cotton canvas bags have to be reused at least 327 times before they can match the carbon expenditure of a single disposable plastic bag. Meanwhile, tote bags made from recycled polypropylene plastic require 26 reuses to match.

I have been obsessed with Thirty-One products for a few years now, and I love the styles and many of their patterns. The only downside is that the products are made in (sadly) China, and that strongly disappoints me (especially for the kinds of prices they charge). If Thirty-One was made here in the States, then they might would get more business and support. However, I own several Thirty-One items that have been really good (and still use them quite a bit). I especially love their zipper pouches (both small and large) and Large Utility Totes. A few of my items have developed flaws (two of my LUTs have cracks on the insides and a couple of my purses have zippers that have turned rusty-looking), but it's nothing very serious. That being said, I will continue to purchase from them. Just wish they made their products in the U.S.A.... https://i.pinimg.com/236x/a4/37/c2/a437c2c4c749bdeb2b1b1afb84213def--younique-lipstick-lipsticks.jpg
The archetypal tote is made of sturdy cloth, perhaps with thick leather at its handles or bottom; leather versions often have a pebbled surface. Common fabrics include heavy canvas, possibly dyed, or treated to resist moisture and mold. Jute is another traditional material, though less popular. In recent decades, heavy nylon and other easy-care synthetics have become common, although these may degrade with prolonged sun-exposure. Many of today's inexpensive or free totes are often made from recycled matter, from minimally-processed natural fibers, or from byproducts of processes that refine organic materials.

When I’m out with my husband, hiking or taking a local day trip, I normally travel with my point and shoot and DSLR camera. While I have a heavy-duty camera backpack that I pack with my camera gear when I’m traveling, I don’t normally haul it all around for day trips which is why I was excited to receive the Sling-Back Bag. I can store my phone, battery charger, business cards, point and shoot camera and DSLR in this handy bag and hit the road. I recently went hiking with it and loved it. It’s very comfortable and can be worn cross-body or over the shoulder. If the large compartment where I stored my Canon camera was padded, I’d use this all the time as my go-to camera bag for day trips. This bag is shown in Black but is also available in other colors and patterns and sells for $48. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b2/35/67/b23567ee7be1141a6f2112861a0b0828--phone--great-friends.jpg

I can't remember what this bag is called but it has 3 totes that fit into a larger carrying tote. The 3 totes have handles. The larger tote has a handle and a strap. I have used this for travel and for groceries. The black and white totes has a small stain as seen in picture. The small totes are 16 in across, 12 in tall, 8in wide. Other than that it is in great shape. Comes from a smoke free home. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/88/9e/df/889edff11cc64f2facb7b2c93fa6d991---gifts-thirty-one-gifts.jpg

Yes, these are all mine. I also have a kelly green one that you’ll see in another photo later in this post. I love this wallet b/c it holds a TON (it can even hold iphones of all sizes) and people often ask me if it’s Kate Spade. I love that it has the same look but at a much cheaper price point. The exterior of these wallets holds up extremely well, too. Oh, and that cork wallet? It has a shimmer in it. Love. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/0b/e2/a3/0be2a3b1f65d7c69c0ed45009216cc23--baby-shower-registry-baby-shower-gifts.jpg
I am very pleased with the studio thirty-one clutch! This particular one is a Hostess Exclusive- but the classic and modern body style studio 31 purses can be purchased by anyone and are the same concept. Option of length, texture, & color of your purse strap, the flap, and body style lets you be your own designer! The quality is comparable to that of a coach or vera bradely yet not as large of a price tag. I personally prefer the simple yet classic elegance of a script or swirl monogram embroidery. I would absolutely reccomend to family & friends! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/25/6a/ba/256aba22fdfa667d8f0cd159cd2d9b82--thirty-one-fall-thirty-one-gifts.jpg?b
