Going Green - A Recycled Juice Bags Tote Review and Giveaway

Photobucket

This giveaway is now closed and a winner will be announced momentarily. Thanks to all who entered!

If you have kids in grade school like me, you’ve probably bought hundreds of them: Capri Sun and Kool Aide juice pouches, box after box. While some schools do recycle the juice bags for fundraisers, some creative moms, like Gisele at RebaggingIt (her Etsy Shop) are recycling and sewing the bags together into some very clever items. Thank you Gisele for sponsoring this review and giveaway of the recycled (Capri Sun) juice bag, multi tote shown above!

This multi tote is made of recycled (fruit punch) Capri Sun juice pouches. The bag measures: height-13”, length-13”, width-3”. The handles measure 11” to the center point. The side pocket between the straps has multi-colored polka dot trim and fits a cell phone, keys or papers. The tote is water resistant, and will wipe clean with warm, soapy water.

The Review: The bags are carefully washed/sanitized and I was impressed at how super clean the tote is inside. This tote is a great size for schoolbooks, papers and even several grocery items. The bold red, blue and green colors are eye-catching and vibrant. The straps are made from a strong nylon strap material and are sewn with an X-box stitch reinforcement, which confirms that this tote can handle the weight of several books easily.

During the summer months, I plan to use mine as a beach tote - it’s the perfect size for a towel, sun-screen and a book! In the case of bad weather, the bag is water resistant too. This unique bag is definitely a conversation starter. The tote is an eco-friendly product that makes a statement about green living. I appreciate and value that!

But it: This multi tote bag is selling for $30 at RebaggingIt’s Shop at Etsy.com.
