|Coffee sack basket, $59|
Many people end up accidentally collecting cheap polypropylene shopping bags rather than regularly reusing them. But what really bothers me about the bags is that they come in one of the most unattractive shades of green I’ve ever seen. When the central Victorian town I live in became plastic bag free last year, every resident was given a brown cotton tote. Like this basket made out of a recycled coffee sack, it is not only much more durable but rather beautiful too.
