ChicoBag ~ Green Halloween {giveaway}


The ChicoBag mission is to reduce single-use bag waste by offering compact reusable bags that are designed to be unforgettable. ChicoBag specializes in offering fashionable, environmentally friendly reusable shopping bags and lifestyle totes.


I have been a fan of ChicoBag for quite some time and have admired their original bag. Sometimes simplicity is a refreshing change and ChicoBag has nailed simple on the head. At a price point of $5.99 the original is your perfect shopping companion. The original ChicoBag easily stuffs down and fits inside the pouch, making is so portable. You can fit an original ChicoBag right in your pocket, or use the clip and have it hanging from your bag. These bags can hold up to 25 LBS and they come in all your favourite colours.

While I think the original ChicoBag is pretty great, it isn't going to be my focus here today, maybe ChicoBag may return to Country Mouse, City Mouse with a review on their original bags. But, today I want to share with you the 2010 Halloween Bag by ChicoBag.




Trick or treaters can now put the "eek" into their eco-friendly celebration by toting ChicoBag's™ 2010 reusable Trick-or-Treat bag. ChicoBag™ realized there was no one better to create our annual Halloween bag design than the user. We decided to hold a contest for the best green-spirited Halloween design and invited students nationwide to participate. This year's design was inspired by Gracie Gralike and is available with two different pouch options; a bat pouch or a pumpkin pouch. In addition to last year's winning design, there is also a Jack-o-Lantern design printed on an orange bag. All three designs are featured on our Original ChicoBag™ brand reusable bag, providing trick-or-treaters plenty of room for their goodies!


I am so done with those plastic pumpkin treat buckets (you know the ones) that my kids have used for years. They are full after a couple of houses and the stops are frequent to transfer their treats from their pumpkin to my shoulder bag. And, most years they are made so cheaply that the handle breaks mid trick or treating. Then you have a crying child as they look down and see their hard-earned treats lying in a mud puddle. They really are a source for aggravation and as I type I remember just how much I hate them.

Halloween 2010, ChicoBags came to my rescue when they sent me a couple of their Halloween re-usable bags. Now, I am saving them for trick or treating, but, there is nothing to say that they need to be saved. I could be using them for my daily shopping trips, because they are the exact same bag as the original. When you purchase a Halloween bag, ChicoBag gives back by making a donation to Green Halloween.

The bags are made of woven polyester. They have a large opening, which is great anytime, but especially on Halloween night. Treats can be put into the bags easily without fumbling around. The straps are wide and I can see these bags would be really easy for children to carry.


And here is the fun part! There is still time to get your submission in for the 2011 ChicoBag Halloween Bag Design Contest. How cool would it be to see your child's submission on next years bag. If your child is between the ages of 1 and 13, go to ChicoBag and find out the details...but hurry, this contest ends on Halloween - October 31, 2010!


~ Giveaway ~

ChicoBag sent me two of their reusable Halloween Bags, and I love them.
And, because I love them so much and hate those plastic treat buckets with a passion (and I figure if I feel that way about them, many others feel the same way), I am going to offer one of the bags I received as a giveaway:)
But, it is going to be a quickie, because I would really like to get it to the winner in time for Halloween!
