MY FAVORITE LITTLE GREEN BAG

“Long before the green-minded hip began toting these fishnet shopping sacks whilst touring organic foodmarts, the USSR had developed the archetype — the amazing avoska. Extremely long lines were commonplace and a score of good groceries was rare, so avoskas were essential, with their magical capability to collapse, unfold, and hold stockpile-bound bounties.

What a great picture! I love these bags- they are also great for taking the soccer ball to practice.

This bag is very fashionable and functional at the same time. And the best part is it's eco-friendly. Need I say more?

I love these bags and have wanted one ever since I first saw one years ago. They're so fashionable and cool (in the best possible way)... and eco, of course smile

I just got one of these at Pearl River. They are great - light, compact when not in use, fits a ton when used, but it does have a drawback - it's icky to put your groceries on the subway floor in these.
