ChicoBag Duffel Reusable Bag

ChicoBag Duffel Reusable Bag

When I think of reusable bag, I immediately think of grocery shopping. It’s true. I think about how I always forget my reusable grocery bags. And I always vow to remember the next time! Guess what… it rarely happens. The bags do get used for all sorts of other things, just not grocery shopping.

Well, I recently got an education in the world of reusable bags. Did you know that they are designed for more than grocery shopping? Did you know they come in all different shapes and sizes? Well, I got schooled (just in time for Back to School!) from ChicoBag!

You see that duffel bag up there? It’s made from recycled materials! It’s  lightweight, eco-friendly, and made with durable, recycled PET ripstop fabric!

ChicoBag Eco-friendly Duffel Bag

Spacious and Roomy

Ideally the ChicoBag Duffel would be absolutely perfect as a gym bag. But let’s be honest. The last time I went to the gym regularly was before W was born. Yes, he’ll be 2 in a few months. So while it would make a fabulous gym bag, W decided it would also be great for stuffed animals! Makes sense, right?

So we started stuffing and we got a lot of animals in the bag! I was impressed! I think we fit 5 large stuffed animals in the bag and there was still room for more! There is definitely enough space for everything you might need for the gym. Plus, the bag doesn’t weigh much at all which is fabulous! I don’t like heavy bags at all!

Recycled Duffel Bag

I also loved that each part of the bag is made with some recycled materials! That is truly an eco-friendly bag right there! Even the carabiner? That impressed me! My family and I are trying to make small choices to live a more green lifestyle and ChicoBag makes it pretty easy!

Pockets and Zippers

Every reusable bag we had before our ChicoBag Duffel didn’t have any special features like zippers or pockets. They were just the square-shaped totes that are open on the top. They are great for fitting in tons of groceries but not great for tipping over in the backseat when I turn a corner in the car.

So I love the zipper on the duffel bag as well as the zippered side pocket. This bag is looking more and more like my new gym bag. Maybe it’s trying to tell me something!

ChicoBag Reusable Bag Mesh pockets

The duffel also features mesh pockets inside. I absolutely love when bags have small interior pockets! I can stash my phone, extra pacifiers (hey, it’s true), snacks, and other smaller items without them getting lost in the shuffle. The mesh on the pockets is great too because you can see what’s in the pocket!

That’s a must-have for me as a busy mom. I want to see what I need and grab it!

Busy Mom Approved Reusable Bag

The ChicoBag Duffel has definitely come in handy for me! I have been working on things in my classroom at school. It worked great for taking along some snacks and toys for W while he “helped” me out. It’s been great for quick trips out like that. Plus, I’m now familiar with the world of ChicoBag and it is a pretty place!

ChicoBag offers a variety of bags to choose from! They do have grocery bags if you need some but they also offer backpacks, messenger bags, snack bags, and even fashion bags! You can learn more on their website or get connected on Facebook and Twitter!

What do you use reusable bags for?
