CLOSED: Giveaway: ConservingNow.com Reusable Bag


ConservingNow
Like so many others who are committed to bringing their own bags when shopping, we quickly realized how often we forgot our bags in the car or at home. It was incredibly frustrating to be in line at a store and realize (yet again) we had forgotten our reusable bags.

We knew that all our good intentions to make a difference by always using our own bags wouldn't really help if we could not remember to bring them to the store. Our local Whole Foods had their lunch tables by the checkout stands and we would sit there eating lunch and listen to shopper after shopper say "Darn!! I left my bags in the car."


ConservingNow.com’s goals are threefold:

1) Change behavior of adults (use reusable bags for all shopping trips).
ConservingNow.com came up with a FREE CAR WINDOW STATIC CLING to remind shoppers to grab their bags when they leave their car.


2) Educate young people and their families about the harmful effects of plastic bags to our oceans and environment.
ConservingNow.com has classroom kits for teachers as well as free resources for parents, families, teachers and schools

3) Create a community change blog.
ConservingNow.com has a one-stop resource where individuals, municipalities and corporations can find out what other areas of the country are doing either with environmental initiatives or legislatively.


ConservingNow.com also sells reusable bags, ecokits and other assorted reminder products.   100% of their profits go toward funding classroom kits and individual static cling reminders.
 
Given that most individuals use on average 500-1000 plastic bags per year, ConservingNow.com's community is responsible for keeping over 60+ million bags out of the ecosystem and they have only just begun!    
Below are some of the really cute bags that are carried by ConservingNow.com
 
Envirosax Animal Planet 5-in-1 Pouch

Animal Planet Series

Playful, instinctive and clever, animals in our own backyard are our link to the greater animal kingdom. They remind us of our responsibility to the environment and to preserve its beauty for all inhabitants. Produced under license with Animal Planet™, these captivating designs are a fun expression of your animal appreciation.


5-IN-1 POUCHES

The 5-in-1 pouch sets are a great way of buying all 5 bags in a series at once. The pouch is small enough to fit into a handbag or the glove compartment of a car. No more excuses for leaving your reusable bags at home!

These little guys are awesome & really small when rolled up! The bag can fit in the palm of my hand & are perfect to keep in the car without taking up room! You can easily store all 5 bags in either the glove department or center console!

I received the above butterfly bag to review! It's cuter in person & the color pops! It holds a good amount of groceries just like the plastic grocery bags in the stores! The feature I love about the reusable bags are that they don't bust open when you put a heavy item(s) in them! The weight capacity is 44 lbs which is awesome but I don't think I will be carrying 44 lbs anywhere!

I also love the free window cling which is a really awesome idea! I personally always forget my bags & I never thought of a window cling to help me remember! But it's also good advertising to tell people they should use reusables!

One lucky person will win an Envirosax bag of your choice!
