According to the Collins English Dictionary a tote bag is “a large and strong bag”. Tote bags are a versatile bag and they have a range of uses. They are traditionally made from materials such as cotton or canvas but can be made from a whole range of cloth materials, including leather.
Tote bags can be used for different daily tasks, but these are some of the ways you can use yours:
Whether it’s food from the grocery store or the new clothes you just had to buy, tote bags are durable, sturdy, and perfect for transporting shopping of all kinds whilst being kind to the planet.
As a Beach Bag
Tote bags are super handy for day trips to the beach as they are perfect for carrying all of your essentials such as your towel and sunscreen. You can get custom printed cotton tote bags with different types of handles, so the styling possibilities are endless.
Sometimes tote bags can build up over time, particularly if you pick them up at trade shows or festivals. If you have more cotton bags than you know what to do with, you could use them for home storage. They can be easily hung up on pegs on the back of doors to hold toiletries, washing, or smaller items such as underwear and socks. They offer a colourful and less bulky alternative to boxes or drawers.
For the Gym
If you need a simple gym back to hold your gym kit rather than a more bulky gym bag, then you could use a tote bag as an alternative. They can be used to transport gym kit or to just carry your water and gym towel if you’re off to a quick gym class.
