Tazzy Totes Review

Have you been to Tazzy Totes? I love their motto - "Taking Sexy Back In An Eco-World". That is just priceless! 


About Tazzy Totes:
tazzyTotes™ was born from a desire to do the right thing while at the same time, getting rid of all the plastic bags overtaking my kitchen. And the guilt that came with it.

Using less plastic has become "Eco 101". However, I confess that my busy life and quest for convenience kept me from "breaking the plastic habit". And I don't think I'm alone in that admission because despite the movement to reusable bags, billions of plastic bags are still being consumed every year.
But the only options were the same reusable, cloth bags that you see everywhere. Better than plastic? Yes. But other than sustainability, they lack function, appeal and style which is why so many vehicle trunks are full of forgotten cloth bags.

It made me wonder if reusable bags were more attractive, would people use them more? I knew I would so I started researching. I thought there had to be an alternative to cloth bags where I didn't have to sacrifice my sense of style. A bag or tote that I would remember to take shopping because frankly, it looks good. Finding nothing, the idea for tazzyTotes™ took shape.

What's evolved is a line of eco-chic shopping solutions that are more than just totes, they're fashion accessories.

But beyond style, this project is about making better choices and sustaining our quality of life. It's about accountability and helping others "break the plastic bag habit". And by extension, it's about taking responsibility for the future of this planet. Which is why tazzyTotes™ is proud to align with 1% For The Planet, an organization dedicated to connecting business and ecology by inspiring members of the business community to contribute 1% of sales to environmental groups around the world.


If you are like me and trying to rid the world of plastic grocery bags, you might want to check out this site. They have a wonderful variety of Tote Bags in all different shapes, sizes and cool colors. LOVE the orange! 


I was sent the produce bags and the Go-Green Pen to review. You can never have too many produce bags, though sometimes the bags are quite small. These however are a wonderful large size! It was amazing how much I could get into them. Even Bananas and they don't usually fit! Each bag has a wonderful erasable label to write down the bin number when buying bulk! Don't you hate it when you fill your bag - go look for the twist tie to write the number on, only to find out they are all gone? Or that there are no pencils anywhere and you forgot to put your pen back in your purse? Love that the label is stuck to the bag!

Produce Bag
Not only are mesh Reusable Produce Bags a smart alternative to plastic in the produce and bulk food department, they feature a clever, erasable label for writing names or bin numbers on with our Go-Green Pen*. Also great as lunch sacks or see-thru general storage, Produce Bags are available in two sizes.


Features
  • 100% recyclable
  • easy-glide drawstring-closing the bag couldn’t be easier (say no to twist ties)
  • food safe, compact polyester mesh
  • machine washable and stain resistant
  • wash n’ store fruits and vegetables directly in produce bag
  • catch free seam - all seams are sewn outside the bag to prevent content catching

  • large bag volume: 7.8L
  • large bag carrying capacity: 12 lbs (5.5 kg)

If you would like to purchase a Tazzy Tote or the Produce Bags, for now you will have to email them. They are still working on the On-line Store. I do believe the Expandable Bag is calling my name! In orange of course :)

  1. Wow! A Tazzy tote is good for company product giveaways. It's so amazing that I found a review of this product in this blog. I've been looking for inspiration since my sister would like to host giveaways for her boutique this coming holidays. Like other Houston, Texas marketing company or companies, she wanted to give some product samples to her clients. She wants to have several choices of promotional products Houston, Texas, giveaways, too.
