My reusable Built wine bottle carrier's always gotten me compliments -- while saving those rather useless little brown paper bags grocery store baggers like to put bottles in. But I just watched a video that now makes my reusable wine bag seem rather shabby.

Why buy a specific bag to carry wine bottles when furoshiki -- a simple square piece of pretty cloth -- can do the same thing more stylishly? Furoshiki's a type of Japanese wrapping cloth that's used to transport things -- whether it's wine bottles or a bowling ball. Watch this how-to video to see just how versatile a simple piece of silk cloth can be: www.videojug . com/film/how-to-carry-groceries-with-a-square-of-cloth

With the holiday season coming up, furoshiki can be used as a gorgeous, reusable gift wrap, too -- something my wine bag won't do as well. Planning on giving a green book or a box of fair trade chocolates this season? Here's another video from RecycleNow that shows how to stylishly gift wrap both of those using furoshiki: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bn6zdyCAwJs
