I am so in love with reusable shopping bags these days. There are some pretty cool and stylish ones out there. In April he have Earth Day on April 22nd. If you missed my previous post on reusable shopping bags and what plastic bags do to our earth I highly recommend you check it out. We really need to stop and think what little things we can do to help our environment. One simple and esiest ways is to get some good quality reusable shopping bags.
ChicoBags began in 2004 when Andy Keller went to his local landfill and was shocked at what he saw. Check out the picture of the Bag Monster it's unreal. On his way home from the landfill Andy noticed that plastic bags were stuck everywhere. Trees and puddles were saturated with them and from that day on Andy said no more. He went home, got himself a sewing machine, and made his first ChicoBag.
Andy marked Earth Day 2005 as the first official day to launch the original ChicoBag. His original bag has grown into many different shapes, sizes and colors. Originally only offered in white. Now, 7 years later, ChicoBags are here to stay and marked a huge impact in our environment.
I was thrilled to receive an Earth Day ChioBag for review.
My Thoughts on ChicoBag's Reusable Shopping Bag
Oh I love me a new bag. I have really grown to love my reusable shopping bags. I find they have more uses then just for groceries. This Earth Day celebratory bag is awesome. Not only am I telling the world I care about the earth but it sports a fantastic logo of our mother earth.
This ChicoBag is made from Fabric 100% Recycled PET, Carabiner 97% Recycled Aluminum, Cord 100% Recycled PET, Cordlock 100% Recycled Polyurethane. This bag I can see taking to the beach this summer. It can hold up to 40lbs (which is about 5 gallons of milk) so it can for sure hope your beach gear. Another great feature with ChicoBags is that it comes with a little pouch. When your done using the bag just fold it up and store it. It's so small you can place it in your purse so you will never forget it. I for one will be keeping this in the car for those last minute trips to the store.
