  1. These bags are really cute. However, like all things fashion they get old and we want something new. So what happens when we discard these bags? Some bags are made from non biodegradable material.

    This is SUPER important, after all we are trying to be green. Project GreenBags are fashionable, and made from 100% organic cotton. They also make them in San Francisco CA. which making products locally in the USA is important on SO many levels.
