Happy Earth Day to all of you! So far, during earth week, I have shared a few things we do around here to save our planet! Today is no exception! Today’s focus is “Say No To Plastic”! Plastic is a big problem in regards to our environment and plastic grocery bags are one of the worst. Not only are they toxic to our environment, but can really harm the little creatures we share our planet with. Here’s some food for thought: It’s estimated that 500 and a billion plastic bags are consumed every year throughout the world. Only 1% of those bags are recycled! Why? It costs more to recycle a plastic bag than it does to make one!
It’s time that each and every one of us stand accountable for our part in the above statistic…Many stores are now selling reusable totes and when I saw this trend beginning to happen, I knew this would just solidify our green lifestyle a little more, so I jumped on board and purchased about 10 reusable totes!
The Problem? I keep the reusable shopping bags that in my trunk and I NEVER remember to grab them out before I do my shopping. Time and time again, I have been standing in the checkout line, hitting my head, angry with myself for pulling another Homer Simpson! As a mama who likes to live green, it’s important that I set an example for my fellow man and I’m not doing a very good job, if I’m walking out of the store with plastic grocery bags!
One couple, who lives far, far away from the hot summer sun here in California, were having the same problem! They thought “we need something that can stash in a purse”, thus Joey Totes were born. This ingenious little product is the shopping bag of the future and when Joey Totes sent me a Joey Set, I was able to see first hand how easy it is to change the world, one green task at a time!
What in the world is a Joey Tote?
Joey Totes are reusable totes unlike any other…Joey Totes are made of rip-stop nylon, commonly used for outdoor apparel, that is incredibly durable but can stuff into a small size for easy stowage into a purse or backpack. A Joey Set comes with 3 bags (1 large and 2 small) and each bag folds up small and fits into the bigger one, you can then toss into your purse, diaper bag, pocket, etc. Joey Totes are compact, washable, stylish and oh so convenient.
Just how big are Joey Totes?
The Big Joey can comfortably carry 4 shoe boxes while the small Joey fits 2 shoe boxes so you can carry both large and small loads. The oversized stow pouches are capable of carrying themselves and 3 more Joey’s. Can you get anymore convenience out of one set of bags?
Joey Totes are available for purchase at joeytotes.com. Individual bags are available for sale or you can purchase a Joey Set for only $20…again the Joey Set comes with 1 large bag and 2 small bags. However, right now “Deal”ectible Mommies readers can save 10% by using code: DELMOMROCKS
I would highly recommend Joey Totes to any of my friends and will be purchasing a few sets for family. To say it boldy, this mama thinks Joey Totes Rock!
