Happy Town Hawaii debuts recycled canvas totes

Happy Town Hawaii totes

Monday is Earth Day. So, you should probably get it a present.

Something eco-friendly, practical, and so adorable, you'll want to keep it for yourself - like a recycled canvas tote by Happy Town Hawaii.

For owner Tamar Wong, the progression from celebratory wine totes to regular, everyday totes was, well, tote-ally natural. New styles just uploaded to her Etsy shop feature roomy, 19-inch arm candy in metallic violets, reds and blues dipped in one-, three-, and five-minute increments for a vibrant ombre effect.

Izavel Like the wine totes, these too come with a tagline. Flip them over to find the mantra "Love your world" screenprinted on the back. "It's a big heart with a big statement," Wong explains. "It signifies everything... loving your friends, your neighbors, strangers, your town, your earth, and your world."

While you're at it, you may as well bag the To Market to Market tote as a stylish reminder to bring your reusable bag to the grocery store (Earth would be so proud).

The new totes are already online, but you can scoop them up in person tomorrow night at Honolulu Night Market. We'll even hook you up with a 15 percent discount.

Because we think the world of you.

Score 15 percent off To Market To Market totes, $22 each, and Ombre Heart totes, $40 each, when you mention Lei Chic at Happy Town Hawaii's booth during Honolulu Night Market, and on Etsy with free shipping (refunded after purchase) with the code LEICHIC through Sunday.
