Fashion Meets functionable With ChicoBag

By Jodi Truglio — June 14, 2017

According to the Center for Biological Diversity, Americans use 100 billion plastic bags a year, which require 12 million barrels of oil to manufacture.

It only takes about 14 plastic bags for the equivalent of the gas required to drive one mile.

Sadly, the convenience of using plastic bags has lead to more than 100,000 marine animals that are killed annually.

As a result, many counties have either banned or put a tax on the use of plastic bags as a way to detour use. For example if you go to the grocery store and need a bag to carry your items in the store will change you for the bag. The idea behind it is to hopefully encourage customers to bring their own reusable bag instead of having to pay for a plastic one.

Companies like ChicoBag which was founded in 2004, mission is to
help humanity bag the single-use habit. By advocating for waste
reduction and designing the highest quality, longest lasting reusable bags.

The company offers products that they hope will empower people to take an active role in solving the single-use problem.

ChicoBag has done a beautiful job creating fun bags with positive messages on them basically they have created a bag that can go with any outfit and is suitable for just about any event.

The Review:

Sidekick Flora Boysenberry Bliss

The Boysenberry Bliss Sidekick bag is currently one of my favorite bags that I use while I am running errands or I do not need to carry a heavy purse, yet I have found it to be just fashionable enough to use while I attend conventions.

I have received many compliments while using this bag which is always nice. The bag is light weight and very portable, it is the perfect sized cross-body bag that is great everyday use, plus its hands-free design makes it ideal for shopping, or on the go. The bag is very portable and is perfect for taking on trips or to a farmers market. It is very easy to clean, I put mine in the washing machine and air dry, it comes out looking brand new. I only wish it had pockets or a zippered pouch.

• Cross-body style reusable bag for hands-free shopping
• Top button closure keeps items secure
• Rolls and buttons when not in use for convenient storage
• Made from durable, machine washable fabric
• One year warranty


Vita Inspire Be

This is such a fun bag, just seeing it just puts you in a good mood. This stylish reusable bag was designed to inspire change. The bag has a subtle honeycomb background with buzzing bees and flowing lavender on both sides. “Be the change” is printed on the handle and pouch.

The bag is a happy reminder of the bees that fed on the lavender in my backyard during the first few weeks of Spring. It is strong and designed to last, but strong as the bag is it carries an even stronger message about conservation and saving the Bumble Bee. Vita Inspire Be has shoulder length straps and is the ideal companion on any day trip or shopping outing and the entire bag stuffs into an integrated pouch with an attached carabiner for easy storage when not in use.                                                                       .

• Full size reusable shoulder-style shopping bag
• Hands-free design is great for all your shopping needs
• Entire bag stuffs into built-in pouch for convenient storage
• 40 pounds carrying capacity
• Made from durable, machine washable fabric

Travel Zip Flourish 3 Pack

I wish I would have discovered the Travel Zip Flourish for my trip to Scotland it would have made traveling so much easier and everything organized.
