Happy Earth Day....a little late...ECOBAGS review/giveaway

GIVEAWAY IS OVER THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED!

Well....yesterday was Earth day...I am posting this super late. It is so crazy how a sick child, another child who is on top of me all the time and all of the sudden busy Real Estate career gets in the way of my blogging. As if...

So I hope you enjoyed your Earth Day and did something for our planet!

If you are not familiar with me I must tell you this...I LOATHE THE PLASTIC BAG!!! I have mentioned it SEVERAL times in other posts. This is just one of many reasons why.......




Look at all those plastic bags in my yard!!! YUCK!

So for years I have been using my own bags, and now it is the thing to do and that makes me so happy! You see reusable totes EVERYWHERE! Every store has them proudly displayed with their logo on it big as day. Now I don't know about you but I don't feel right bringing one stores bag to another. So I am sure I am not alone when I say I have totes from several stores in town. Most are not the best quality and are falling apart. I would rather not purchase new ones with the stores logo so was I thrilled, I mean thrilled, when I had the opportunity to try ECOBAGS Classic String bag.


I was sent the short handle and the long handle to test out and they both were excellent! These things hold up to 40lbs of goods! That seemed impossible when I saw them but they expand nicely when filled. And are small enough to fit in my purse, another added bonus!!

I did get an odd look from the bagger at the grocery store but I assured him they were going to work just fine. He was surprised at the amount they held and quite impressed. I love it when I am right!!
I was actually surprised to learn that ECOBAGS have been around for 20 years, quite impressive, a company WAY ahead of it's time!
Here is some more about them from their web site:

Eco-Bags Products, Inc. opened for business in 1989 with a simple goal; to produce quality bags at great prices so that "Reusable becomes a way of life." We started with the ECOBAGS® Brand Classic String Bag, a simple lightweight, expandable daily tote used in Europe for generations, long before paper and plastic bags.

We introduced our bags at the 1990 Earth Day celebration on Sixth Avenue in New York City. The bags were a hit. We sold out in four hours. Now, we carry a complete line of ECOBAGS® Brand bags in natural and certified organic cotton, recycled cotton and hemp/cotton blends.

All of our canvas totes are available unprinted or custom printed for organizations and companies (minimums apply). ECOWEAVE® Brand Organic home goods and T-shirts are now available, too. Under the ECOWEAVE® Brand we produce organic cotton towels, loofah scrubbers and other home products.

Our T-Shirts are organic, hemp-cotton and recycled content, available to the trade unprinted or custom printed.

ECOBAGS® Brand products can be found in many natural foods, gourmet, eco, grocery and drug stores. They are used as promotional tools and incentives for retailers, manufacturers and many nationally recognized non-profit organizations. Keep an eye on magazines and newspapers because ECOBAGS®Brand bags are even starting to hit the world of fashion and accessories.

ECOBAGS® - the original reusable bag, eco-friendly products and environmental updates - since 1989

Now for the exciting news!!! TWO, yes TWO of you will win one of ECOBAGS classic string bag! Just think how wonderful this bag will be not only at the grocery store, Target, Wal-Mart and other such like stores but I personally am excited to use it at the Farmers Market!
