    But there are so many types of bags like canvas tote bag then why we are using reusable fruit and veg bags.

    As it turns out, canvas tote bags might be less eco-friendly than plastic bags because they’re often made of cotton, which requires more energy and water to produce. According to one study from 2011, a cotton bag’s carbon footprint is 598.6 pounds of CO2, compared to 3.48 pounds for a standard plastic bag made from high-density polyethylene. Researchers concluded that it might actually be better to reuse those plastic bags you get from the supermarket, then recycle them once they’re no longer viable.

    This is predominately a UK site, so I doubt if anyone's going to be able to advise you on a store in the US.
