This post was written by guest contributor Jess Chamberlain, a Seattle-based writer whose love of good design is second only to her passion for environmentally friendly living. Look for her posts all month on our blog.
(Duck bag in Goldenrod: $26.)Known for the genius fold-'em-up carryalls that tuck neatly into your back pocket, New York City–based Baggu makes it possible for us to respond "Neither!" to the ubiquitous "Paper or plastic?" question at checkout. But its cotton canvas line goes a step further. 
(Duck bag in Royal Blue: $26.)The Duck bags, backpacks, and weekend totes are made from cotton scraps recovered during the creation of other products such as T-shirts and socks. It's material that would otherwise go to the landfill—turned into summer-ready bags you'll want in every color.
