Going Green with Custom Tote Bags from CafePress

Updated on October 30, 2014

Custom Tote Bags on CafePress

Christmas 2008, I bought my daughter her first environmental friendly tote bag from She swore as a child that she would never own a purse. But as she got older, she found that owning a tote bag especially if it were considered to be an "environmental friendly green bag" was a very cool thing to have. My daughter has used her bag for school books, makeup, keys, cell phone, food to snack on, used it as a grocery bag and even her laptop a couple of times. This bag is large enough to fit many items, but not the kitchen sink.

Here are the details of the CafePress sturdy tote bags:

100% cotton canvas tote bags with plenty of room to carry everything you need when you are on the go. They include a bottom gusset and extra long handles for easy carrying.

* 10 oz heavyweight natural canvas fabric

* Full side and bottom gusset

* 22" reinforced self-fabric handles

* Machine washable

* Measures 15" x 18" x 6"

The bag shown above can be found at HAVE D.U.M.B. MERCHANDISE This was not my daughter's Christmas present.

Quality Products and the Christmas Gift

Besides the tote bag, I have ordered other items from CafePress and I can tell you personally that they offer high quality products with fast delivery. Going the standard delivery, I had received the products within a week. This my vary, but I was impressed. Many of their items are organic green living style products.

I was first torn between two types of designs to buy for our daughter. One was the Christmas dog design and the other was the Canine Presidential design. I settled with buying the Presidential dogs (shown below). Although she told me afterwards that I could have bought both.

She has used her bag just about every day since Christmas. Except for a little dirt, it looks just like new.

Too many people come off the "Short Bus". We all know who these people are. Everyone at some point had experience this illness. The only answer is to make a purchase, so together we can find a cure. Help make this possible by going green with custom tote bags. Great for carrying groceries and helping with saving the planet from excess garbage.

CafePress Tote Bags are a High QualityProduct

As a product review it all started with writing about going green with custom tote and grocery bags. This article was going to include both CafePress and Zazzle shops. But then I realize that CafePress and Zazzle each needs their own article about reusable tote bags.

Being a customer on any print-on-demand store that you sell from is the best way to find out the quality of the products offered. If I had purchased low quality items, I would not be selling their products nor promoting them in any way. In fact I would send the word out on how cheaply made their products are. Since I am a customer, I would recommend CafePress products to anyone. I have been happy with my past purchase and fast delivery. And my daughter loves her environmental friendly tote bag. The material of these bags is heavy and strong.
