Clockwise, from top left.
Los Angeles accessory designer CC Skye uses biodegradable canvas in this tote ($250), with a hand-braided leather-and-gold strap.
In water-resistant, recyclable nylon, the EnV Bags shopper ($8.50) holds up to 40 pounds and folds into a pocket when empty.
The sustainable tote from Buji Baja by Hat Attack ($80) is made entirely of organic-cotton canvas.
This plastic-coated Cambodian Children’s Fund bag ($35) was handcrafted out of rice sacks by young adults training in design; proceeds benefit the CCF’s vocational program.
Lacoste’s nylon carryall ($70) zips into an easy-to-store pouch when not in use.
