Sage Green Bags Review & Giveaway!


I have been trying to live more environmentally friendly over the last three years. I do this in a variety of ways. I recycle, use products that have little to no chemicals in them, reduce plastic by using stainless steel sippy cups for my kids. Another way that I help the earth, is by using reusable tote bags. I use them for everything, carry my Bible and notebook to Bible Study, books back to the library and especially grocery shopping.

So when I heard about Sage Green Bags, I knew I wanted to let my readers know about this great company. Thank you to Sage Green for sending me two complimentary bags for the purpose of review.

I received a canvas bag with "I Love This Planet" on it, as well as a brown designer tote (pictured further down).

About The Company:

Sage Green LLC was born in the spring of 2006 with an ‘aha’ moment from Teri Thomas, the current President. She was introduced to a reusable shopping bag that had taken Ireland, Taiwan, Australia, and South Africa by storm. As a world traveler, Teri was familiar with commerce in many countries and it seemed that the time had come for the United States to embrace the habits that had long been second nature to the rest of the world.

Her passion became the catalyst for educating the people on ways to develop a socially responsible lifestyle through reducing, reusing, and recycling. Sage Green has brought together a team of professionals to give our customers the best customer service and education available. As a result, the success has been monumental.

Sage Green LLC reusable shopping bags were chosen by the television series Wa$ted on the Discovery Channel as products that are emblematic of the need to focus on reusing products over and over throughout our daily lives.


This company specializes in eco-friendly resuable totes for the wholesale market offering companies inexpensive eco-friendly advertising with customized totes, non-woven polyproplyene
bags, canvas bags, jute bags and stainless steel/BPA water bottles.

They also come in a variety of colors and can be personalized for your business or fundraising needs.

My Review:

I love these bags. I especially love the funky design on the brown one! I would much rather do my grocery shopping with a "fashionable" reusable bag versus the hum-drum generic, run of the mill looking bags.

I also really love how big the bigs are. I figured out that I could get, in the two reusable bags I received from Sage Green, the equivalent of seven (yes, 7!) plastic grocery bags!!!! Unbelievable!!!

These bags are strong, can be washed easily (I did not put mine in the dryer) and I love the various colors that can be purchased (including lime green!).

With Christmas just around the corner (only 34 days away!), these would be great stocking stuffers for anyone who wants to do their part to help the earth!

BUY IT: Sage Green Bags products can be purchased online here for the great price of $9.79 for a bundle of 5 (the designer bags) plus shipping!!!!

WIN IT: 2 lucky will win their own Sage Green Bags. One winner will win 2 Canvas Bags, while 1 winner will 4 brown bags!!!!

  9. I do a lot of this. I always bring my coffee mug (a great one that I got at Disney five years ago). But the thing I do that I think will have the most impact is teaching my son the importance of recycling and reusing. He is 14 years old and just amazes me with the decisions he makes. Thank you for the chance!
