These are the best solution we found as an alternative to single-use plastic bags, and one of the best and most useful ways to promote a business.

Canvas shopping bag, the Cabas bag. Made from 80% recycled cotton, 20% recycled polyester. What we like to call an all-purpose bag. Big and simple enough to be around in all situations.
