Want something eco-friendly and useful that’ll keep your kids occupied for hours? Thought so. Try the Kidzsack, a tote that will stoke creativity again and again. Kids can choose from one of four patterns (jungle, castle, sports, and sea life scenes) to color with washable, non-toxic markers, and — and this is the best part — when they’re done with the day’s design, simply wash the bag and the fun starts all over again.

The tote is made from 100 percent recycled fabric — even the straps are made from natural fibers — and it holds everything from beach gear to toys to books to sporting gear. Now, if only they’d come out with an adult version.
