Ecobags Classic String Bags Review & Giveaway -- ENDED



We love using reusable bags. In addition to having them in my purse, in my car and in DH's car for shopping trips, we also like using reusable bags for many other things. Ecobags sent me a set of 5 classic string bags to review. While they are great for shopping trips at the farmer's market, I also found a couple of other uses for them. I like using them to transport DD's sand toys. When DD is done playing with her toys, I just toss them in the bag and shake a few times to loosen the sand from the bag. No more sand in the back of my car from DD's toys after that.

When I need to give my friends stuff, I also like to use the classic string bag to bag the items for them. Instead of using plastic bags, we reuse the same classic string bag over and over again. For instance, I needed to give my friend Nancy some containers, so I used the reusable bag to bag them for her. The next time I saw her, she pack some dinner for us in the same bag and returned the bag back to me.



Each classic string bag can hold up to 40 lbs. They are great additions to anyone who wants to be good to mother nature and not use plastic bags. To buy your own Classic String Bags, please visit the Ecobags website.

Many thanks to Ecobags. The company has generously offered the same set of classic string bags as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).

I like the insulated lunch sac too. It is so easy to just go out for lunch everyday, but it is not good for my figure OR my pocket book. If I could get in the habit of bringing my lunch it would be a good thing
