For those moving forward in the going green initiative, check out Joey Totes. It seems that every company these days is trying to make hip, trendy eco bags - this is true. Joey Totes keep the environment in mind because of its' reusable nature, but the difference is these bags are highly durable. The totes are made out of rip-stop nylon, they hold up to 40 pounds, and they are machine washable.
Joey Totes are started by a couple in Maryland - Chris and Kate. For fashionistas, they kept the shopping environment in mind. Kate wanted something to keep her purse and other shopping goods in, but also something she wouldn't feel awkward carrying around while at the mall or grocery store.
