Giveaway – ChicoBag Messenger Bag – Ends 3/24/10

Designed to be Unforgettable

About: 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 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.

I think the world would be a very different place, if everyone were to take a little field trip to a landfill. The amount of unnecessary garbage is astounding. I’m glad that there are ChicoBags to lessen the burden on the environment.

Having a ChicoBag means that I can avoid using icky plastic bags AND their RePETe bags are made from recylced plastics, so they are making good use of the plastics that are already here. There are shopping bags in different shapes and colors and daypacks and messenger bags.

ChicoBag has some fun new items on the way for Spring. The very cute Messenger 10 bag is designed for women and can be used as a shopping bag or a messenger bag. It is super lightweight, just like their other bags, but is sturdy enough to hold books or my laptop.

The bag is made with 85% recycled materials – even the little caribiner clip is made from recycled alluminum! The strap is wide and can be adjusted. There’s a small zippered pocked inside, a large zippered compartment outside and 2 convenient side pockets that easily hold a water bottle or other items that you need easy access to.

ChicoBags are stylish and convenient – very unforgettable! :)
