I’ve taken the plunge on going green! I cloth diaper my baby, light my home with CFL light bulbs, I wash my clothes in cold water, line dry when I can, recycle, and I use totes when I go grocery shopping. Now the last thing I mentioned, I used to struggle with. My husband and I purchased totes from a grocery store but they always never ended up going back with us. We’d end up leaving them at home due to naturally forgetting them. Then something great happened, I learned about Breezy Bags! These bags are not like most grocery store tote bags, these bags fold up and they can fit easily into my purse, diaper bag, pocket, or on my husbands belt loop since they have a nice little clip.
I received a pouch of five Olive Green breezy bags to test out. I took them for a spin yesterday while out grocery shopping and let me tell you, these bags did the job! All my groceries for the next few weeks fit into these bags perfectly. I was taken by surprise that these bags can hold up to 15lbs each! They look so thin and frail but looks can be deceiving! After my grocery shopping trip, I easily folded these bags back up, put them in the pouch and tossed them back in my purse, ready for the next shopping trip! I don’t think I’ll have a problem having my eco friendly bags on the ready ever again!
These bags come in a variety of solid colors, they also have were you can add your business logo, which I found pretty neat. You can buy one set of bags for 16.99 or two for 30.00. It’s really a great deal! We’ll probably end up getting another set so my husband can keep some in the cup holder of his car and I can always keep mine in my purse.
Breezy Bags are solidly stitched out of maximum strength, minimum weight rip stop nylon cloth , to be the most versatile, eco-friendly, green reusable bags and totes imaginable: for all your shopping, storage and toting needs. If these grocery bags get damp, they dry in minutes. They may be machine washed in cold water and hung to dry.
They come with a 1 year limited warranty against defects of material or workmanship, and if you are unhappy with your Breezy Bags for any reason at all, you can contact them within 30 days of your purchase for a full refund.
And if you haven’t taken the green plunge yet, here’s some interesting fact that I’d like share:
In the U.S. we use around 270,000,000 plastic shopping bags in a single day.
One person uses more than 325 plastic shopping bags per year.
A family of four will use more than 1200 per year.
Only 1% of plastic bags get recycled.
700 plastic bags will be used in the life span of one reusable bag.
Paper bags are no better because they use more energy to produce than plastic.
There are over 100,000 marine deaths per year due to plastic bag ingestion.
It takes 1000 years for a single plastic bag to break down in a land fill.
Plastic bags do not biodegrade, they photodegrade. This means they are broken down by light and heat, which causes them to leach harmful toxins into the environment.
So if you are like me and naturally forget your other reusable shopping bags or you want to start thing more GREEN, get yourself some Breezy Bags today… trust me, you won’t regret it!
