How many times a year do you give/receive gifts that are wrapped in paper? If you think about it there is probably a lot of paper that goes to waste! One of my favorite things to do on the blog is to feature products that are green and really make a difference. The Give Bag is definitively a green solution to the wasteful disposable gift packaging problem.
Each Give Bag comes with three erasable/rewritable Give Tags and a erasable pen. The bags also come with their own unique tracking # so that the gift-giver has the chance to register the bag's location and return to the page later to see where the bag went next. The idea is that you purchase a bag, register it and then give it away. The great thing is that the new owner will be able to delete the name in the gift tag and the bag is then ready to be reused by them! Neat idea isn't it? Just imagine how much waste is prevented by giving with The Give Bag!
A feature I like is the interior material flap that covers the gift that goes inside, that flap actually eliminates the need to use any tissue paper when giving a gift!
The bag is made of eco-friendly material and it looks very durable. It can carry an item of up to 20lbs, I tested it with some pretty heavy objects and I didn't have any problems as the handles are pretty strong.
I have registered the bag and I am ready to give it away to a friend for her birthday next week! I am sure it will be a great conversation starter at the party!
