These sturdy, water resistant, naturally insulating, use-them-again bags are a stylish alternative to plastic and paper shopping bags from the grocery and everywhere else. Stronger than other re-useable bags, the Green Earth keeps its shape when full.

The small things we do to keep our Earth green and our rivers clean add up. Let's all knit our part.
