Keep reading to find out how you can win an Ecosilk prize pack! (Aussies only)
I always have good intentions of bringing my own shopping bags each time I go to the supermarket but it’s only when I’m at the checkout with my arms full of items and at least two of my kids standing beside me asking for every single lolly and chocolate in the shop for a treat and the checkout chick asks if I have my own bags, that I remember that yes I do have my own bags and yes, I left them at home *rolling eyes*
So I was excited when I was asked if I would like to review Ecosilk Bags . Not only because they are environmentally friendly and come in 17 striking colours, but they can carry about 14kg each and are compact enough to carry in my handbag.
It is estimated that each Ecosilk Bag will eradicate hundreds possibly thousands of destructive plastic bags leading to a cleaner environment for future generations to enjoy.
The bags are made from recyclable, long-lasting nylon parachute silk. They’re durable, lightweight, strong and hard-wearing. The fabric is quick drying and can be washed over and over again.
Giorgia helped me try out the purty pink one that we got to try out. She carried all her library books in it so it is capable of carrying some weight.
I’ve also been using it to carry my folder and books for TAFE that don’t fit in my back pack (UGH! we need to bring so much stuff!)
Annabelle helped out by spilling her drink on the bag so we got to see just how quickly it dries after being washed LOL
The stitching on the bag is of good quality and finished off so it won’t fray or come undone. The little rosette is a pretty finishing touch.
I’m thinking I might get a few more of these to keep in the car and another one for my handbag. They’re much more durable than plastic bags and much prettier than the green eco bags that the supermarkets sell.
