Organic Reusable Grocery Bags...

M Design Boutique is proud to announce the addition of Organic Reusable Grocery Bags!

The organic bag is manufactured using viscose from bamboo, linen and a fine grade hemp. The bags come with their own little pouch for easy storage in a glove compartment or handbag.

The bags are printed with vegetable based inks and are all packaged a recycled cardboard box that has been printed with organic soy-based waterless inks. A great gift idea for just $25!

And for only $8.50, check out the new black and white designs we're adding this week!

And don't forget the original three "Flora" designs that M Design Boutique began offering in March '08 -- $8.50.
  • Approx. 380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States every year.

  • Only 1 to 2% of plastic bags in the USA end up getting recycled.
