Even before all the supermarkets started implementing their “no plastic bags” policy, I already had a a small collection of those so-called “eco totes” or `”reusable totes.” I always have one folded in my handbag even on non-errand days because you never know when you’ll need one, and they weigh next to nothing anyway!
Several weeks ago, RuMe Philippines sent me a package containing their medium tote and baggie so I could try them out. They came in the cutest prints and I was excited to roadtest them right away.
First stop, our friendly neighborhood grocer. I ended up buying more fruit than usual, just because my new RuMe tote made the fruit look so darned good! This tote is a medium-sized one, but it was really large and roomy. (Perfect for hiding shopping bags containing secret splurges… galing lang ako sa supermarket, hon!)
As for my RuMe baggie, I’ve been using it instead of my usual leather makeup kit in order to lighten up. Since getting pregnant, and especially now that my tummy is so big and heavy, I can only tolerate the lightest of loads which means sticking to lightweight non-leather bags and accessories for everyday use. Post-childbirth, my baggie will be the perfect pouch for storing all my bills and receipts.
RuMe products are also perfect for school use…
And for travel, especially beach trips! No wonder even celebs love Rume! From Jessica Alba…
To Nicole Richie and Joel Madden…
Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine…
And Rachel Bilson.
