I know that by now, you have tons of reusable bags. More than you need, but why not? They're cute. And they're better than plastic bags. And the real reason you have a dozen of them is because every time you go out, you forget the bags at home and instead of bearing the unsufferable guilt of using a plastic bag, you buy yet another reusable bag because hey, at least it's reusable, and you resolve to make SURE you put it in your purse/in the back of the car/wherever next time. But, sigh, Wouldn't it be easier if they were just a little bit more compact, easy to carry?
This, my friends, is why there's Flip And Tumble. The lovely ladies behind this company just finished up at the design program at Stanford and wanted to do something that would be stylish and help the environment all at once.
These bags come in a range of sharp colours, are comfortable and stylish, and carry loads of stuff. But the best part, the part that made me go I WANT! is this:
The bag rolls into a tiny, lightweight purse-friendly ball when not in use, meaning you can pitch it into your handbag and forget about it until the moment it's needed and then - voila! Instant bag. Use it as often as you like. And when it's worn out, send it back to Flip and Tumble and they'll recycle it.
Flip and Tumble bags are available in a variety of cool colours on their website - and yes, they ship to Canada!
