It used to be that you couldn’t find funny reusable grocery bags. Back when we started seeing them blow up for the first time, if anything at all was printed on them, it was usually some chest-beating statement about how super eco-friendly you are–pretty obvious considering you’re carrying a reusable grocery bag. Also, is a message on a bag really going to shame people into changing their habits? Eh, probably not.
Well, now we’re seeing more and more reusable grocery bag that are less preachy, and more downright funny.
