One of the most plagued pollutants on the planet is the plastic bag. It may seem to be a small and negligible item but the fact is, there are millions of plastic bags to go to the landfills all over the world. Estimates reveal that 6.8 billion people consume over a trillion plastic shopping bags in a span of just one year. Although the plastic bag may be small, it is a big problem!
One of the ways our family has tried to live more naturally is by turning to reusable bags. They are inexpensive and can be used in so many ways. This is an easy change that every family could make, it is so simple. The hardest part for me is remembering to bring them along. That is where ChicoBag comes in!
ChicoBag creates so many different products to assist in living a reusable lifestyle!
I received a ChicoBag Sling in the soon to be released River Stripe pattern. ChicoBag’s are Designed to Unforgettable! Through their products, they want to make it easy for people to say no to single use plastic bags at all times.
The sling comes in a little pouch that expands into a full size bag. The Sling is a simple, messenger style bag designed to go where you do. Featuring a large, forty pound carrying capacity and cross-body strap, the Sling is ideal for taking on your bike, hopping on the subway or toting to school.
I love the fact that when it’s bag, it is small enough to fit into your pocket. It also comes with a clip on each bag so it is easy to attach to your keys, purse or diaper bag to help you remember to bring it along. The Sling is made of durable and washable 100% Recycled PET polyester. You can hand wash it in cold water and just hang to dry. All rePETe products are made from recycled materials, mainly 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.
We used it to carry our items for a small picnic we had outside and it worked perfectly even to carry our blanket. It wears so nicely with the cross-body strap, it was so easy to wear while I was collecting tomatoes from the garden. There wasn’t a separate tote to carry, it made it so easy.
