New York is the latest state to ban single-use plastic bags in order to reduce waste and fight climate change, which means you'll likely have to pay for paper bags or bring your own reusable options from home.

Luckily, there are plenty of sturdy, spacious, and sustainable shopping totes on the market that you can use again and again. From structured canvas bags to packable nylon totes, reusable shopping bags not only reduce waste, but they might even make your trip to the supermarket a bit more enjoyable (and organized).
