Expert Commentary

Everyone needs one, two or 50 totes! Totes are here to stay for good, and most of us won’t go to the grocery store without our own tote. Forget single-use plastic bags that take years to degrade. Totes are fun to decorate and to give as a gift. I gifted one to all my friends one holiday season, and they loved it! Choose the size, design and intensity you’d like.
