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/82/6e/2a/826e2a2f0e7c5d62ec89fe38345d312a.jpg
There are many types of tote bags beyond your basic all purpose tote (often referred to as "shoppers"). Laptop totes include a padded laptop compartment and are popular among businesswomen who want a laptop bag with a little style. Travel totes are available in over-the-shoulder and rolling styles and are designed to be used as a companion to luggage, often carried on board airplanes as a personal item or in place of carry-on luggage. Handbag totes are meant to be used as everyday purses and offer a more fashionable take on the traditional silhouette. Finally, there are totes for specific purposes like beach totes and college totes designed with features to hold activity-specific items like books or towels. https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/a6/37/1c/a6371c2ca06548caa5a56ee2fb5c3faf.jpg
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.[2] 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/236x/6f/80/18/6f801801e945d56de2b2876e72c74771.jpg
