I couldn’t be more proud of the well-enforced, progressive law that bans single use plastic bags and requires Los Angeles to charge 10c per each carryout paper bag. This was something that I had experienced in Santa Cruz, and thought it to be a true foot in the right direction regarding the environment.
When this became the norm in LA last year, things got a bit scrappy each time I forgot to bring my own bag to the store—which turned into my large tote becoming my daily market bag. It always felt a bit more in place and chic rather than the reusable canvas ones silently hanging around in my pantry. Here are my favorites the daily market bags:
THE NET BAG | because these truly are the most convenient when carrying larger items that won’t slip through the net.
THE TRANSPORT TOTE | because this goes with everything and houses anything from my computer to garlic and fennel on-the-go.
BAGGU LEATHER SLOUCH | I’ve always loved everything this company makes. Down to my favorite curved makeup pouch until parting with it in the Silver Lake meadow after picnicking with a couple glasses of wine on board.
JUNES MESH | this sweet bag is an unbelievably convenient one to leave in the car for any last minute market pop-ins. And it has the best little pocket to store your keys and wallet so you can leave your purse in the car.
LINEN BREAD BAGS | to keep bread fresh, and to house any little loose produce.
