Win a Reusable Bag from ConservingNow and Help to Eliminate Plastic Bag Use! – Giveaway Closed

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

It has been a pleasure to work with Gayle and Meghan of ConservingNow to bring you this review and giveaway of their reusable bags. These are two women (a mother and daughter team!) who are fully committed to eliminating plastic bags from our planet, and their passion and dedication to this very important cause is evident in the quality of their products.

Gayle and Meghan sent me the Ultra-Sturdy Oversized Cotton Tote, and I have been loving it. We have MANY reusable bags in our home, and the ConservingNow tote can hold the most weight by far. It is strong enough to carry the weight of all of our groceries for our family of three in our weekly grocery shopping trip. The only reason I have used an additional bag has been to prevent the squashing of delicate items like eggs.

I have also used this bag to carry all of Baby’s books and toys when going away for the weekend and for trips to and from the library where we’ve loaded the bad up with several hard covered books without a problem.

In addition to the reusable bag, Gayle and Meghan sent me a static window cling for our car that reminds us to bring our own bag and make a difference. I love this idea! How many times have you gotten into the car or started driving to the grocery store and realized you forgot to bring your reusable bags? With this free static window cling, you’ll have a reminder to bring your reusable bags every time you get in the car, and it also inspires others.

Win an Envirosax bag of your choice and a reminder static cling for your car!
The Envirosax bag is a stylish and compact reusable bag.
