This tote bag is great for a day at the beach or a run to the market. In the photo the bag is holding two beach towels, a bottle of water, sunscreen, an e-reader, a swim suit and a pair of sunglasses and there is still room to fit more! With its wide should strap it is very comfortable to carry even over long distances. No more need to recycle plastic bags you get from the market. Just reuse this bag over and over. It is washable and will last for years!
