b.happybag Give Away!

AND THE WINNER IS:
MICHELLE!
CONGRATULATIONS!

For the last couple of years I have been trying to remember to take my re-usable shopping bags with me every where I go. It's been a bit of a struggle, but I'm getting there :) I prefer larger bags so that I don't have to have 10 bags full of groceries, but so far had only found medium sized one.
b.happybags has wonderful LARGE re-usable bags.

b.happybags is located in Arizona! Here's some information about b.ahppybags:


As long time proponents of “just saying no” to paper or plastic, we know the value of a good shopping bag. Unfortunately, the ones we had had ripped, frayed or shrunk to a size fit for one half gallon of milk and a pack of gum. Necessity is the mother of invention — a happier reusable bag was born. After a few trips to the grocery, farmers markets and even Costco, we knew we had to share the joy.

Our goal in producing these reusable bags is to appeal to the people that think you have to don your Birkenstocks to make a wise post consumer decision. Not only does it save a tree or a barrel of oil — it makes your shopping trip a hell of a lot easier. And — it’s much more fun to carry home your cantaloupes in a zebra print bag. We sincerely hope that our bags will help to eliminate the destructive overuse of disposable bags

Worldwide, hundreds of billions of plastic bags are consumed each year. Less than 3% are recycled; the rest are clogging landfills, blowing down our streets and threatening wildlife. Because of their negative environmental impact, from manufacturing to disposal, many countries are banning or taxing plastic bag use (as much as 20 cents per bag!). As petroleum based products, the cost of plastic bags will continue to rise, being passed on to consumers. As tax payers, we are also bearing the staggering costs of clean up and disposal, estimated at 5.2 cents per bag.


Their selection of bags to choose from is amazing. The Shopping Totes & Dry Cleaning Bags are a wonderful size. Each measures 15" x 12" x 8". The come in two different types of material: 1) 100% upholstery weight cotton prints or 2) Solid color recycled (water bottles) fabric.

They carry Wine Bags (that hold 6 bottles) in 4 amazing patterns and Yoga Bags in 4 wonderful patterns.

I was given the opportunity to review my choice of bag. I picked the Jane Shopping Tote because it's made from canvas woven from recycled plastic bottles and it's RED! :) The thought that they could make fabric from plastic bottles intrigues me and I wanted to see what the material would look and feel like.

When the package arrived - it included two wonderful bags! I LOVE them!! The fabric is very soft and durable. They are easy to fold into a smaller size to fit into my other bags or my purse. They are HUGE! Just seeing the measurements in the listing didn't prepare me for how much they would hold. The few days later I had to do my grocery shopping for Easter Weekend and obviously took these bags to see what I could get into them. This is what all fit into ONE bag!:

My other bag had heavier items in it, but was still easy to carry. The handles are quite comfortable. Obviously the bags and strong enough to carry anything you would put into them. If you are looking for a bag that is made from recycled materials, looks amazing and hold "tons" of stuff - these are the bags for you!

NOW FOR THE GIVE AWAY!
b.happybags will be sending one winner their choice of 2 bags from the site!
