Hey, this whole "green" thing may just have legs! Using canvas bags in place of plastic ones doesn't just reduce carbon footprint emissions—it makes a nifty window display, too. Angel Street Thrift Shop has turned totes into a head-turning spectacle, with a random assortment of bags artfully positioned along their storefront on West 17th Street in Chelsea. Whether it's a nod to the environmental movement or simply a low-budget thrifty display, we like it just the same.
