i'm not a plastic bag

many of us wouldn't be unfamiliar with the recent craze over the coveted "i'm not a plastic bag" canvas tote from anya hindmarch. the rising attention to eco-friendliness and green-movement has brought about a surge of recyclable totes and shopping/grocery bags being produced and sold all over the world.

i wasn't looking for a recyclable shopping bag (but you know how i can't resist pretty stuff :P)... chanced upon these japanese-print foldable bags - again at takashimaya - and grabbed two of the small-sized ones: one for mum, one for myself :D

though nowhere near the league of anya hindmarch's "I'm not a plastic bag", these water-resistant, light-weight nylon bags (small S$8.55; large S$13.50) ain't exactly very cheap either. but my excuse: they're so pretty and easy to tuck inside my regular bags, i will be doing a lot more for the environment by skipping those plastic bags more often ;)

ps: if you'd missed out on the previous anya hindmarch "i'm not a plastic bag", check out the new A.H. fashion week totes.
