It’s EcoMonday, and we’re excited to share with you the chance to win The Give Bag by Give Green Gifts.
Each week, we hear from readers and customers ooohing and aaahing over the prints and colors of the fabric gift bags they find here. Whether it’s a wedding, a birthday, or an office party — there’s always a beautiful option in a gift bag or furoshiki style fabric gift wrap to suit the occasion. But from time to time, someone writes and says, “These bags are great, but I really want something that stands up like a paper gift bag.”
To me, this has just been a mindset issue… what we’re used to seeing lined up on the gift table. But I happen to know from experience – baby shower guests can’t resist passing around the pale pink floral gift bags. Talking about how the mother can reuse it to carry pacifiers in the diaper bag, or how they’d love to carry their favorite essential oils when traveling.
So while I’m totally satisfied with a fabric gift bag — sitting, standing, lying down — I’m always on the lookout for bags that bridge the gap to the paper bag with handles we’re so used to seeing. When I saw The Give Bag, I knew it was the missing link.
Made from jute, a biodegradable vegetable fiber, these bags are as green as they are gorgeous. Just take a look at the assortment of colors! They’re versatile too. I’ve used the black style for a variety of gifts, and it works for every occasion.
They’ve taken “green” a step further by eliminating the need for tissue paper. Instead the bag has a fabric flap you can tuck neatly over the gift so there’s no peeking. And you know that whole gift tag issue? Use it once then off to the landfill it goes? The Give Bag comes with a dry erase marker and an assortment of erasable decorative tags.
They’ve really thought of everything… including the opportunity for you to win one. Here’s how:
All you have to do is head over to Facebook and tell us your biggest challenge when it comes to gift giving. The winner will be chosen at random among the Facebook comments. Winner will be announced Monday, August 15th. Happy commenting and good luck!
