Waste Not, Want Not

Designer R. Nichols believes "As long as we are doing our little part for the world, why not do it with style?" He created this playful and functional canvas bag to not only put a little spring in your step when you roam the aisles, but to also cut back on waste in our environment. This 100% recycled tote is made with 80% post-industrial recycled cotton and 20% post-consumer recycled plastic. Roomy and sturdy with an original illustration, this reusable grocery tote destroys the paper and plastic competition. Made in the USA.

This item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

When Washington, D.C. native Nick Hanzlik couldn't find an appropriately stylish or witty greeting card for himself, he was not content to make do with Hallmark. Instead, this Atlanta transplant generated his own uniquely identifiable and eminently sophisticated stationary line. Hanzlik prints his cards from detailed, handmade silhouette collages, onto exquisite quality paper, lending them a truly one-of-a-kind aesthetic. The fashionable line, launched four years ago has carved a much-needed niche in the industry.

Perhaps most impressive is the fact that the artisan is single-handedly responsible for every aspect of production, from designing, to marketing, to cold-calling potential accounts, to folding each individual card and hand-boxing it. He is also committed to exclusivity. He aims to peddle to stores that "get" his product and more than that, once a card sells out, it's over. No more are made.

As in the prototypical American dream, where hard work, ingenuity, and creativity tread, accolades and success are certain to follow. Sure enough, Hanzlik has already garnered his share of rave publicity. Demi Moore is a customer, and has been known to order 15 boxes at a time. The line is blowing off the shelves at the upscale Kate's Paperie boutique, and Neiman Marcus and Barneys have both expressed interest. All the attention is enough to prompt the artisan to speculate as to who may be next in line: "I'm terrified that Oprah's going to discover me and put me on her favorite things list. I mean, it's my dream, but I'm horrified at the same time."

In his (it would seem rather limited) free time, Hanzlik says he enjoys bike rides, the beach, and healthy snacking on granola and fruit. But if the glowing consumer response is any indication, his work is priority number one. Eat your heart out Hallmark.

    Comments about 100% Recycled Cotton Shopper Tote:

    This bag was a great gift for my single sister. Her shopping trips for groceries are made easier with this bag, as she doesn't usually get more than 2 or 3 bags & this bag is large enough & sturdy enough to carry it all up the 3 flights of stairs at her apartment. Plus it is super cute.

    Comments about 100% Recycled Cotton Shopper Tote:

    A cute, stylish "go green" shopping bag that would be improved with some sort of strengthening insert in the bottom. A bit too expensive for a canvas tote, but the friend to whom it was given loved the graphic.

            With the trend of going green, this reusable grocery bag is both cute and functional. I feel like a stylish lady at the grocery with my bag. Has made grocery shopping even more enjoyable, and the bag is just the right size that it is not too bulky, but holds a good amount of groceries. The materials are of high quality and the straps are a perfect length.

            I bought two. I use them for any kind of shopping(when I remember) I leave them in my car to remind myself. I've gotten compliments every single time I've used them and am asked where I got them. Good advertising, huh?

              I love this bag!! I love the little shopping logo on the front and I love that it is really big. I have recently gotten into the whole recycling thing and the fact that it is 100% recycled is a huge plus! I am going to use it to go to the local farmers market this summer and I can't wait to use it!!
