I try to be environmentally sound when possible. I walk most places that I can rather than take the car, I hop on the train with the twins when we want to go downtown or to the zoo, and I try to use resuable shoppers whenever possible.
My favorite shopping bags have easily been Chicobags! They are totally sturdy, big and roomy, and come in fun colors and styles! Chicobag uses recycled materials and has designed RePETe bags made from recycled bottles.
I got the opportunity to review the DayPack15 rePETe!
 The DayPack15 rePETe is a compact, pouchable backpack designed for the environmentally conscious traveler or commuter. The DayPack15 is made of lightweight, durable, recycled PET ripstop fabric and features subtle curves, cocooned stretch bottle pockets, adjustable shoulder straps and an internal zipper pocket that doubles as a pouch when the pack is not in use. A unique closure system keeps your goods safe when in transit and allows for larger items, like a bunch of fresh carrots, to stick out the top on your way home from the market. The DayPack15 rePETe is made of 95% recycled content and lists the recycled components used in manufacturing on the inside of the bag and the back side of the pouch.
Because I am always on the go with the twins I always feel like I can use an extra set of hands. I always seem to accumulate things during our outings too – random toys, blankets, and sippy cups. It’s great that the DayPack15 not only is a back-pack style (hello free hands!) but that it also folds up into the size of a sandwich. So I can toss it into my bag. It also has a carabiner clip so I can clip it anywhere. It’s machine washable, super sturdy, and made of eco-friendly and sustainable rePETe! The color choices are fab too:
These are great gifts for anyone and everyone on your list – Plus be sure to check out Chicobag’s other products – a ChicoBag makes a great gift bag!


Chicobag is sold online and at several retail locations!
