"We don't need a handful of people doing zero-waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly."
- Anne Marie Bonneau
Sustainable-ish totes are meant to be a unisex reusable shopping bag that you can wear with your casual outfits and still look classic and chic. These totes are made of 100% recycled materials.
As a person who is passionate about sustainability and fashion, I often feel like a walking contradiction as the fashion industry is one of the leading contributors to waste and carbon emissions. That's where Sustainable-ish comes in.
As Anne Marie Bonneau so perfectly put it in the quote above, we aren't striving for perfection. We are striving for a general culture where ways to limit waste is top of mind.
Sustainable-ish is for people who know that the onus of the bulk of the climate crisis falls on the top 1% and large corporations to fix, but we also know that small lifestyle changes and being more aware and intentional with our purchases still help.
Waste not, want not.
Not sure where you fall on the spectrum? Well, being on this site is a pretty good start!
Skip getting the single-use shopping bags at clothing and grocery stores and use a Sustainable-ish tote instead.
