Chico Bags!

Once again, my daughter is trying to snitch my cool things... this time it's my ChicoBag!  Really... who could blame her!  These bags are wonderful!

ChicoBags are reuseable bags in a variety of shapes, styles, and colors.  There seems to be a bag for every occasion!  Here's the really cool part, these bags come with their own little built in pouch that you can store them in.  I throw the pouch in my purse when I'm heading out to the store.  Then, when I need it, I pop it out of the pouch and have a great bag to put my groceries (or whatever I'm buying) in!

I'm excited to use this for summer trips when I have wet swimming suits to put in it!  It is made of durable, washable fabric.

How did ChicoBags get started?  Here's the story from the website:

In early 2004, Andy Keller, now ChicoBag™ president, took a trip to his local landfill after spending the day landscaping his backyard. He was horrified by what he saw. Single-use bags were visually the dominant article at the landfill that day, blanketing the landscape in a thin mix of white and beige plastic. On his way home he began to notice plastic bags everywhere, caught in trees and on fence posts, half drowned in gutter puddles and blowing in the streets like urban tumbleweeds. That day Andy vowed to stop using single-use bags. Inspired, Andy dropped a few bucks on a second hand sewing machine and began sewing what would ultimately become the first ChicoBag™ brand reusable bag.

There are so many ChicoBags to choose from, slings, messenger bags, day packs, totes, produce bags.  All offered in lots of colors and styles!  I love all the options!  Here's the one I chose:

ChicoBags is sharing the love!  You can win a ChicoBag just like mine!  Very cool, if you ask me!
