Personalized sustainable canvas tote bags

Practical and on trend, sustainable canvas tote bags make great gifts.

Typically, canvas bags are made from synthetic, petroleum-based fibre — such as polyester or nylon — which can often take hundreds of years to break down and decompose, damaging the environment as a direct result. Organic cotton, linen, hemp, recycled and biodegradable materials are the best substitutes for making high-quality, eco-friendly tote bags. With tote bags, you can also print a custom logo or slogan to help your brand reach more consumers.
