ChicoBag

Have you ever stopped to think about how many plastic bags you use? If you haven’t converted to a green lifestyle, take a minute to consider all the disposable plastic you use. You pack school lunches in the morning: sandwiches, fruit, chips, etc.. For my two kids that’s about 6 baggies and if I pack for my husband that’s another 3 baggies. Holy cow! 9 plastic baggies, say what?! Then consider a trip to the grocery store. Buy a few groceries for the family and you can add another 8-10 plastic grocery bags to the total. Wow! The numbers are really adding up and so are the piles of plastic bags in our landfills!

Plastic Bags Create Garbage and Harm the Environment

I recently read a disturbing article about a whale that was killed by trash, specifically plastic bags! The good news is there are Eco-friendly companies making an effort to reduce the amount of landfill garbage, while bringing us stylish, durable bags. If you’re ready to make the switch, protect the planet and eliminate useless plastic bags from your life, let me introduce you to ChicoBag.

About ChicoBag

ChicoBag is an innovative company dedicated to making the world a cleaner, greener place. Their mission is “Helping Humanity Bag the Single-Use Habit”. I’m sure we can all agree, plastic bags are overused and create a trashy environment. They pile up in landfills, blow around the streets, litter our oceans and are dangerous to wildlife. ChicoBag advocates waste reduction by offering high quality, durable AND fashionable bags. I’m ready to make the switch and ChicoBag makes it easy.

Let’s take control and be empowered to clean up the world, one bag at a time! 

ChicoBag Products 

ChicoBag offers a variety of versatile and affordable bags. They make it easy to go green and be cool. I like that! They have reusable shopping bags, fashion bags, outdoor and travel bags, sandwich bags and produce bags. That’s a bag for every occasion! Won’t you look put together with all your coordinating bags? Yes indeed you will! 😉 

My Experience with ChicoBag

I’ll admit, I’m a bag lover. It feels good to pull out reusable shopping bags at the store and I love carrying cute, functional bags. That’s exactly what ChicoBag offers, a unique variety of classy bags. For this review I chose an active tote: Nomad Tote in Smoked Pearl and sandwich bags: Snack Time rePETe™. These bags are both terrific! Let me tell you how we used them. 

Nomad Tote

027

The Nomad Tote has been a lifesaver for my family. Both my boys play football, so we’re at the field every weekend. We always have tons of extra stuff to carry and never have enough hands. This large, durable tote allows me to organize and easily carry all our sideline gear, drinks, snacks and more. It’s attractive inside and out and includes several organizing pockets and an interior hook, perfect for attaching my keys so they don’t get lost during the shuffle. This bag could also be used for active adventures or quick weekend getaways. The possibilities are endless! 

Snack Time rePETe™

  ChicoBag

The Snack Time rePETE is a unique sandwich bag. I’ve tried other reusable sandwich bags in an effort to go green and eliminate plastic baggies from our life, but I’ve never been happy with the cloth bags. Most of them are made of cotton and constantly need to be washed. My kids aren’t the neatest eaters so small messes in the bags are inevitable. These bags are made of a unique material, which is water and stain resistant. If the sandwich leaks out into the bag, all I have to do is wipe it down. These bags are also machine washable. It’s great to have the option to quickly wipe them down though. I love that! They’re also larger than typical reusable sandwich bags. Snack Time rePETe bags can hold a sub when opened to it’s capacity. SWEET!

  12. I really dislike using plastics and aluminum foil. I didn’t know there was such a great alternative. I would like to be able to wrap our foods in these bags instead and then wash them like I do my dust/cleaning cloths.
