10 Versatile Ways to Use Your Reusable Tote Bags

Creative Uses For Our Reusable Sailcloth Tote Bags

1. Carry Your Groceries

Let's start with the obvious: tote bags are made for shopping. They come in handy every day, from a trip to your local farmers' market to the grocery store. If you haven't already, ditch the plastic bag and choose durable models, like recycled sailcloth totes, and you'll have a trusty companion for years to come.

2. Bring to the Beach

A good beach is not only practical for storing all your essentials, but it's also what brings together a beach look. Going with the family? Choose from oversized tote bags that can fit several towels. Regular beach-goer? Up the beach bag look with waterproof bags made from sails!

3. Take Your Lunch to Work

Whether you prepare lunch at home or pick it up from your favorite deli, it should arrive at work in one piece. But plastic is a no-go, and paper bags can get soggy with one clumsy move. That's why totes made from sailcloth can do the job better–not only are they stronger, but they're also easy to wash or wipe down if something spills.

4. Stuff in Your Suitcase

A durable sail bag can come in handy on any trip: you can take it to the beach, sightseeing, use it for your daily essentials, or have it for a change of clothes. Better still, you won't need to buy extra bags if you go overboard with souvenir shopping (don't worry, we've all been there)!

5. Use as a Picnic Bag

Who doesn't like being outdoors while catching up with family and friends, not rushing anywhere, just enjoying the moment? What completes this picture is homemade food and some delicious drinks–carried in reusable containers and eco-friendly bags and totes, of course!

6. Carry Your Gym Gear

Athletic-style sports bags are heavy, take up a lot of space, and don't go with most outfits. Those hitting the gym straight after work (kudos to you!) need something versatile and lightweight instead of a thousand pockets and zippers. To arrive at the gym like a breeze, you're better off with reusable tote bags, which you can easily carry around before and after your workouts.

7. Take for a Weekend Trip

Weekend getaways are great fun. They are spontaneous and easy to organize compared to long holidays. But packing for just one weekend might become stressful, especially if you want to squeeze all your clothes into one bag. A better strategy is to pack light in tote bags made from sails to make sure your belongings are safe.

8. Use as an Overnight Bag

You can even pack the kids' stuff in your tote bag for their sleepover at friends' or grandparents'. But don't be surprised if they demand their own bag after a while. It's a small price to pay. After all, it's never too early to teach them about the benefits of recycled tote bags.

9. Carry Your Books

There are only two types of bookworms: one that carries one book and finishes it in no time, and the other: the same, but with five books. They both know you need strong bags to protect your favorite titles. Heavy readers, look no further than waterproof sailcloth bags; they're guaranteed to stand up to the test of frequent library visits and all the book fairs.

10. Make a Fashion Statement

If you want to get rid of the clutter in your wardrobe, multipurpose pieces are the way to go. Tote bags made of recycled sails are available in various sizes and colors, making it easy to find one to suit your style. If you want a truly versatile piece, choose classic colors to match many outfits–the hallmark of a statement piece that can weather any fashion storm!

About Casco Totes
