Storefront: Change the basket icon to a cart icon

Someone asked me today, why does the shopping cart had an icon of a basket instead of a cart?  It’s called the “cart” after all, right?  The URL says cart, and WooCommerce says cart, but there’s an icon of a basket.

Here you can see the default “cart” icon on the Storefront menu:

It also appears on mobile in the “handheld menu” on the bottom:

If you want to change these icons from a basket to a cart, here’s a bit of CSS I wrote that will do the trick (as of Storefront 2.2.4):

.site-header-cart .cart-contents:after,
.storefront-handheld-footer-bar ul li.cart > a:before {
content: "\f07a";
