The basic tote or tote bag is a medium to large square-shaped bag with a large open compartment and double handles. Traditionally, totes have an open top, but more brands are offering styles with zip tops and magnetic closures. The greatest advantage of carrying a tote over another style of bag is in its versatility. The large interior allows you to carry a variety of items from books to beachwear and work essentials to everyday necessities. That's why you'll see these carry-alls everywhere from the boardroom to the boardwalk to the beach. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/df/cf/44/dfcf4401ccbd775a45157fec30cf6258.jpg

A 2014 study of U.S. consumers found that the 28% of respondents who own of reusable bags forgot them on approximately 40% of their grocery trips and used them only about 15 times each before being discarded. About half of this group typically chose to use plastic bags over reusable ones, despite owning reusable bags and recognizing their benefits.[2] An increasing number of jurisdictions have mandated the phase-out of lightweight plastic bags to reduce land and ocean pollution. In order to provide an incentive for consumers to remember reusable bags more often these laws establish a minimum price for bags at checkout and require either paper, reusable fabric tote bags, or thick reusable plastic bags. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/6f/80/18/6f801801e945d56de2b2876e72c74771.jpg
