Help keep the planet clean and green by then using the Grappa as an eco bag to carry your purchases home. Or, if you are caught in an earthquake while out and about, just open it up and put it on your head to provide some protection from falling objects. The bottom of the bag is made of helmet-style hardened plastic so that it can double effectively as an earthquake hood.
