Giveaway - Chico Reusable Produce Bags

What can I say? I love Chico Bags but probably because I love the environment. And I don't want it to look like this.

I have raved about how wonderful the Original Chico Bag is because it folds up, fits in my purse (multiple bags and I don't have a huge purse) and they are reusable and washable. They are the perfect gym bag for me! I have shared my love of this bag and wanted to share some more love.

I contacted Chico Bag and let them know what I was up to. They were kind enough to play along! I received a sample of the reusable Chico Produce Bags to try and another starter pack to share! To clarify, I received no compensation. I received the bags free of charge and this opinion is solely my own!

Check out how cute the produce bags can be stored?


Isn't it adorable? This little strawberry houses three reusable produce bags, made of different materials for different items. It is a bit bulky to keep in my purse at all times but I do keep them stashed in the pocket of my car door. So if I am going into the grocery store or to the farm, bingo, I grab and go!

At first I thought remembering which bag was ideal for what would be cumbersome but I quickly realized they had little pictures on them to guide me. Thank you Chico Bag! My next thought was that it would be difficult for the cashier at the grocery store. Nope, the first guy didn't even blink or stutter and easily did what he needed to do. I honestly like the mesh bags the best, even if they aren't ideal for all, since they are easy to look into and I like to make jobs easier for others. Granted: I live where there is a plastic bag ban and retailers are used to people bringing in shopping bags. If your community doesn't do this, it may take a moment to educate them but it is worth it!

And who knows, perhaps Santa will come late and provide one lucky winner an Original Chico Bag for their other shopping, or gym-going, needs!
