Happy Earth Day! Today is the day your honor Mother Earth and reassess what you can do be more green. One way that I do, which is super simple, is use reusable shopping bags. I was thrilled to partner with Chico Bag for this Earth Day review.
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 review the new Chico Cross Body bag. I love this bag. I have used it several time this past month. I love the fact that it fold up into this tiny roll that can be stored in your purse or glove box for easy use. I found that it’s very durable as well. It can hold up to 25lbs and fabric is so easy to clean. This would make a great back to take to the beach.
This bag has to be one of my favorite just for the fact it’s compact and it allows me to be hands free. With kids hands free is so important. I have used it for groceries, tote bag for Grandma trips, and now I will be using it this summer for the beach and park.
Please sit and think on this Earth Day about what you can do to help your environment so we can leave the best earth for our kids and generations to come.
Chico Bag sent me 2 samples so I am going to give one of them to one of my lucky readers. Giveaway ends 5/6. US Residents only. Good Luck
