So I'd kind of sworn I was going to avoid the ubiquitous canvas bags that are so popular for environmental reasons. You know, all those bags with their self-righteous "I am not a plastic bag" proclamations (often seen in malls stuffed full of plastic junk doomed for the landfill; at least it's all being carried in a politically correct fashion).
I do, however, like these canvas bags. Emblazoned with a city map of your choice, the bag either proclaims a serious case of tourista or a definite amount of hometown pride. Either is superior to the "who's the greenest of them all" contest.
Choose from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Chicago. They're only $15, so they're great for a stand alone gift or one stuffed full of biodegradable products. Or, stuffed full of cans of hairspray and oven cleaner. Your choice.
