With people trying to make more Eco-friendly choices, reusable grocery bags have become huge over the past few years. We’re all familiar with the typical carry all that people use for their groceries, but SnapSac has put a cool spin on carry alls! These make excellent gifts, Christmas or any other time!
SnapSac is a division of 1 Bag at a Time Inc. and are committed to offering stylish carry alls, while remaining socially responsible. SnapSac was born out of their desire to create a bag that met all their customer’s needs. They surveyed their customers to find out what they wanted in a tote and they continue to listen to them when it comes to making improvements.
I think this quote from the About Us section on their website sums it up far better than I could:
“We strive to live our values every day, and bring you a tote bag that is fashionable and socially responsible, just like you!”
They encourage all of their customers to contact they and share there opinions, so don’t be shy! If you have an idea that will help make SnapSac and even better tote, let them know!
SnapSac was kind enough to give me the Natasha Tote, Gold and the Natasha Tote, Silver to review. The carry alls arrived nicely foled and snapped into rectangles (pictured below), which I thought was nice for keeping things neat and organized when they aren’t in use.
Both of the totes are a part of SnapSac’s Natasha holiday collection for 2012 and are made with metallic ink that adds a sparkle to the bags! I was highly impressed the construction of the totes. They are double lined and the handles are sewn to the bottom, which makes them extremely sturdy; no need to worry about the bags breaking if the groceries get to heavy!
The bag also snaps in 3 places and features a pocket on the inside, which I thought was really cool. I’ve been given or have purchased many reusable totes over the past few years and none of them have been anything more than bag with handles. It is obvious the SnapSac is made of superior quality to all the rest and I would not hesitate to give it as a gift or recommend them to someone.
Since receiving the two totes, I have started to use them while grocery shopping, along with the other reusable grocery bags that I have. I now reserve my SnapSac carry alls for the heavier grocery items because I feel much more confident that the items won’t break the bag. My daughter also loves them (she loves the metallic silver one the best) and insists that I pack her overnight clothes in them whenever she spends the night at someone’s house. The snap on the bags helps to ensure that whether it’s her clothes or my groceries don’t fall out, which I absolutely LOVE.
Another thing I really like to do with reusable totes is use them as gift bags. For kids I normally buy the ones with cartoon characters on it, but the SnapSac totes would make awesome gift bags for adults. They are sturdy (if you’ve never had a gift bag break on you, trust me when I say it sucks), stylish and reusable; the gift bag is actually part of the gift. I’m a genius, right? Feel free to tell me so in the comments below, I’m totally okay with it.
Oh and if you’re into having Golden Globe or Oscar parties, how cool would it be to make these into gift bags, just like those that attend the actual events? I might just have to try that one myself! Since SnapSac totes are so affordable the ideas on how to use them are really endless.
SnapSac not only offers reusable grocery totes, but they offer cool totes, lunch totes, etc. They also sell bundles where you can get multiple types of totes at a great price! You really should check out their site and see all the great colors and totes that they offer! They don’t only make excellent Christmas gifts, they make great gifts any time of the year!
