I decided to buy a new carry-on luggage but it was the MOST STRESSFUL SHOPPING EXPERIENCE EVER! All of the luggage’s that I came across, whether it was at a department store, off-price retailer, boutique, or high-end store had the California Proposition 65 warning label, that clearly stated: “This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.”

Who wants to buy a luggage with this warning label on it? Certainly not me. So, I set out on a mission to find a luggage that did not have this label on it. After a week of searching in every store imaginable, I had no luck. Mostly all of the luggage’s that are being sold have this label and as a consumer you really have no choice but to buy these luggage’s with cancer-causing chemicals. There are claims that imply that these luggage’s have small traces of chemicals that cause cancer and that the risk of you acquiring cancer is very small. A search I did online suggested that the only other alternative is to purchase a bag made out of canvas, organic hemp, or genuine leather. I guess I’ll have to save some money up and eventually buy a designer carry-on bag that’s genuine leather. In the meantime, I’ll pray I don’t get cancer!
