I am trying to become a total canvas bag user.
I’ve got a stash of 15 or so canvas bags (most are goodies from Book Expo America, but there are some grocery chain bags in there, too) that I try to leave in convenient spots for me to remember when I go to the supermarket or farmer’s market. A bunch hang on the pantry door and some live in the trunk of my car, ready for spur-of-the-moment shopping trips. I even keep a little Chico Bag in my purse.
I’ve used canvas bags are everywhere from Target to Linens N Things and no one seems to mind.
Here’s a presentation giving a lot of the reasons why I’m choosing to go plastic-less whenever possible. Let me know what you think.

We’ve given up on paper bags for our recycling because we were scrounging, just like Emily. Now we just have to take the whole bin with the recycling out to the big bin outside. It actually makes me more diligent about thoroughly washing out food material from the plastic (as it contaminates it) because otherwise I would be cleaning out the bin that sits in my kitchen far more than I care to.
Yes! We are nearly 100% canvas in our household. It’s so complete that we are starting to scrounge for paper bags to hold our recycling.
I even have a little canvas bag that my toddler carries!
