Grocery Tote Bag

4 reviews


The CaliWoods Grocery Tote Bag with 6 internal compartments and 3 external pockets is a low-waste shopping dream

This Tote Bag is made from 100% GOTS certified Organic Cotton and is designed to separate and protect loose items while making packing a breeze. Market shopping or beach day anyone?

1 x The Grocery Tote

Made from durable Organic Cotton with extra-strong stitching. 'Happy Vibes' is the fun, circular graphic with the whale tale. 'The Minimal' is the smaller graphic on the bottom left hand side with the hand and the leaf. Both designs have the key/phone pocket on the other side 


Why you will love the Grocery Tote Bag:
  • This is not your average reusable shopping bag!
  • The Cali Grocery Tote brings innovation to the grocery shopping game by incorporating internal and external pockets to keep produce and items separated, protected, and sorted.
  • This super functional design also looks sleek and neutral while lasting for years and years with its heavy-duty stitching and organic cotton canvas.

Picture these three scenarios where the Cali Tote is a game-changer:

Grocery shopping at a Farmers Market

  • Use the 6 internal pockets to snugly hold delicate produce like tomatoes, lettuce, beans, fruit, and eggs. Often removing the need to carry multiple produce bags.
  • Use the main pocket or side pockets to fit larger items like fresh bread. Place your phone and keys in the handy front pocket to keep your hands free for gathering produce.
  • The Tote is wide enough to fit all of your produce hauls in the one bag, saving you hand space and making leaving the house simpler.

Grocery shopping at a Bulk Food Store or Supermarket

  • Holds your glass jars and keep your paper produce bags organised in the internal and side pockets
  • No items being crushed by heavier jars in the bottom of the bag
  • Makes unpacking at home a breeze without leaking bags or bruised produce

A summer beach day

  • The Cali Tote is large enough to easily fit 2 beach towels in the main pocket while holding sunscreen, snacks, a portable speaker, and a drink bottle in the internal pockets. Keys and phone in the external pockets.
  • No more mess created by leaking sunblock at the bottom of the bag, or not being able to find your snacks without repacking everything. This Tote keeps everything organised and separated so you always know where to find your stuff.
  • Handles are big enough to fit over your shoulder so you can carry your goods to your secret beach spot with ease. The durable cotton canvas and heavy-duty stitching easily handle frequent use.

The Specifics of the Grocery Tote Bag:

  • 45cm x 43cm x 22cm 
  • LOW WASTE. This zero-waste Tote Bag eliminates the need to buy synthetic or single-use shopping bags for future grocery needs.
  • 100% GOTS certified Organic Cotton from India
  • FUNCTIONAL. 6 internal pockets and 3 external pockets. Having built-in pockets in your grocery bag really is a game-changer. No longer will loose produce be crushed at the bottom of the bag or that smaller purchase disappearing among other items. Pockets keep your produce  and belongings snug and separated while making organising and unpacking far easier.
  • Choose from TWO DESIGNS. Low-key 'The Minimal' or the fun and summery design 'Happy Vibes'
  • GOTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON 100% of the Tote is made from Organic Cotton Canvas . Cotton is one of the most pesticide-heavy, water-intensive crops in the textile industry. This pocketed reusable bag will last and it supports farmers who are working to minimise these impacts. 
  • ETHICALLY CRAFTED and made with love in India. The textile and fashion industry is notorious for human rights abuse. We work with a factory that is ISO certified and, although we aren't perfect, we are continuously working to improve our supply chain. 

Care Instructions:

Machine wash at 40 degrees Celsius. Do not bleach. Do not tumble dry. Iron low and not directly on the print. Do not dry clean

    nice bag but not practical

    I love this bag, its design and functionality and sturdy construction. However it is too heavy for the self checkout, have to get a staff member to verify the 'own bag' function every time I use it which is a bit of a pain, and because of this I don't use it, which is a shame.
