GreenSmart Review & Messenger Bag Giveaway - ARV $90.00

Contest Closed – Congrats Jennifer M.!
Do you ever wonder what happens to all of those plastic bottles that your township recycles?  Just how do they get re-used, anyway?  You're about to find out!

GreenSmart is committed to making green products that are also good-looking and affordable too.  They make bags, totes and bottle cozies too.  Some of their products are made from 100% recycled plastics.  Believe it!

This is how it's done, in a nutshell. The bottles become ground up, washed to become fiber, spun into yarn and woven into our fabrics. The overall process also uses less energy than making polyester out of virgin chemicals. Amazing, right?

I'm in New York City today at the BlogHer conference, with my Puku Messenger bag in tow.  This is just one of the many beautiful products available at GreenSmart, and I think $89.99 is a great price point for such a stylish messenger bag.  I liked having the zipper at the top, which is much easier to use than the flap of a traditional messenger.  (But if you like that design, they have that too in the Baringo bag).  It has pockets gallore for my business cards, wallet, notebooks, and also includes a fully padded laptop bay which will hold my netbook as I walk from session to session.   Wearing this bag is more comfortable than any other bag I own, and it’s my favorite practical accessory.

In case you were wondering, the "Puku" is named after an endangered antelope.  GreenSmart donates 10% of their profits to helping create a greensmart planet, which is wonderful.

  10. I'm following you and doing all the entries I can!

    Was going to enter the Essentials Swimwear giveaway but was unsure of the end date. At the bottom of your review it says in bold that it ends 8/10, but the sidebar it says 8/16.
