We love Trader Joe’s because of their delicious food finds with reasonable price tags that make us keep coming back for more. From their French wafer cookies to their Korean rice cakes and their chicken meatballs, you can explore cuisine from all over the world in just one grocery trip. And we also appreciate Trader Joe’s commitment to sustainable products. 

The grocer is encouraging shoppers to eliminate single-use paper and plastic by investing in some reusable bags to use over and over again. Most recently, as spotted by TikTok account @dianar39, Trader Joe’s just dropped mini canvas tote bags, perfect for those quick trips to the store for a few extra items you missed the first time around.

For $2.99 each, the bags are made of a heavy duty 65% cotton and 35% polyester blend — the same as the larger canvas totes. They each have a long and comfortable handle for wearing over your shoulder, and measure 13 inches long by 11 inches tall and six inches wide. Plus, you can grab them in four different colors: navy, yellow, red, or green.

“It’ll fit a dozen of your favorite TJ’s apples, or you can fill your Mini Tote with TJ’s snacks and sweets to keep you munching on your next road trip,” Trader Joe’s writes on their website. “You can even stash a small paperback in the handy side pocket, along with a Ciabatta Demi-Baguette, Organic String Cheese, and Citterio Salami Sticks for a relaxing spring afternoon in the park.”

The brand also notes that these are only going to be available for a limited time so you may want to pick some up when you see them. If you were looking for a small way to do your part and create a better future for our planet, this is certainly one way to do it — just don’t forget them in the car.
