Reusable bags are a huge trend. 

"Everyone wins with reusable bags," says Julie Zizka, creator of The Tote Buddy an innovative binder and organizer for reusable shopping bags that is now made in the USA by a San Diego-based seamstress. "Reusable bags are better for the environment, cheaper for stores and ultimately more convenient for shoppers. And The Tote Buddy makes using them simpler than it's ever been.”

These reusable shopping bags were forgot about while in vehicles or at home or buried under groceries, when they were first introduced.

But Zizka introduced The Tote Buddy in 2009. The Tote Buddy is a solution for reusable shopping bags, a perfect combination of eco-friendly and user-friendly, she says. 

"Reusable bags are on track to become the national standard, especially after voters in California approved Prop 67, which bans most single-use plastic bags," adds Zizka. "With that in mind, I'm exploring partnership opportunities with handbag manufacturers looking to introduce stylish and functional reusable bags in department stores. "
