Eco Logical – an unwise reusable tote


ELB1.jpgNot all reusable totes are created equal.  What does this one have going for it?  It’s reusable, kinda cute, can be washed by hand in cold water and costs only $1.50  However, it’s made of 100% polypropylene, imported, and printed on both sides with non-eco friendly dyes.  I surmise it was made in China, and then shipped to the U.S. for distribution.

It would be much more ecological if it were: made in the U.S., from any number of more eco-friendly fabrics, and printed with non-toxic dyes. via forever21.com
