I'm Not a Plastic Bag by Anya Hindmarch

You want to own the summer's "It" bag? You want to be just like Kiera Knitghtly and other fellow celebs? There will be no need to get a 2nd job in order to fork over $1,000 for 15 minutes of fame. Anya Hindmarch has created a cotton based tote in order to promote environmental awareness. For about $18.00, you too can own the "Very Summer 2007" bag. The bag has started a craze. People stood in line at Sainsbury's in the UK to obtain the coveted piece. Fred Segal in the States and Holt Renfrew in Canada will be selling the bag starting June 20th but due to an overwhelming demand, purchases will be limited (in other words, you gotta stand in line for a looooong time before you get your hands on a cheap canvas tote). Visit the Anya Hindmarch website for more info.
Honestly, I do not see the point unless you wish to play the role of fashion victim. If you have a dire need to promote environmental awareness, recyle or take the bus or something. And if you are dead set on displaying your green-ness through a bag, get the PC one at Loblaw's for about $1.00. It's in black (matches with everything) and is surprisignly roomy.
