One Bag at a Time ~ Review and giveaway!

This giveaway has ended, thank you!
The winner was #24 - Kyla g
(Claimed)



Plastic bags can be recycled, but sadly many aren't. Can you imagine how many tons of plastic bags are being brought to the landfills around the world? Did you know that they could sit there for hundreds of years before they degrade? No one really even knows how long it takes! That isn't even to mention the bags that blow around in the wind, cluttering up the neighborhood getting caught in trees and sewers.

I received a standard reusable shopping bag to review from 1 Bag At A Time and I am quite happy with the quality put into it. It comes with a bottom stiffener which keeps the contents in place and upright and is made from 10% recycled materials. It can hold up to 30 pounds and replace thousands of plastic bags over time!

Whether if you use your bag for shopping, holding your books, or as an overnight bag for the kids you will be making a difference! The only downside I found with my bag, is that I wish the handles were long enough to carry over my shoulder or hang on the handles of my stroller. There are several sizes and styles available in their catalog for those like me, that would have liked a bigger bag!


We can't avoid shopping, but we can reduce the impact it has on the earth... One Bag at A Time

Want to buy it?
You can choose from the selection of bags and make your purchases directly from 1 Bag At A Time. They are very affordable, especially if you buy in bulk!

How would you like to win it!
One lucky winner will receive two of the Shopping Bags that I reviewed.

I always thought that paper bags were better but turns out that making one emits 51% more global warming gasses than a plastic one, also creates 50 times more water pollution and not only uses 4 times more raw materials but consumes 2 times more energy.

:-O :-O

That was shocking!!

I learned that each season 1 Bag At A Time features a new limited-edition designer bag created by a local artist. This season the featured bag is The Mommy & Me designer set - a large tote for Mommy and a smaller matching one for Mommy's little helper. The set sells for $15.99.
