B. Happy Bag Giveaway

9:58 AM Posted by Centsible Mommy

This week I am giving away one b. happy reusable shopping bag from reusablebags.com. (pictured above). These bags are stylish unlike the boring plain blue or black ones with the store logo you buy from the grocery stores and much sturdier too. They have hundreds of reusable bags to choose from in all types styles, colors, and designs, and bags to match almost any need-shopping bags, tote bags,bags for kids, bags you can take to the beach, and much more.

Reusablebags.com not only has a vast array of stylish reusable shopping bags but also reusable bottles, lunch totes, and many more items that make going green easy and stylish!

I love their b. happy bags. They are modern, stylish, sturdy, and it's the bags that I love to use while shopping. Now I want to give you a chance to win one so you can see how great they are and so you can shop in style too! Not too mention, they're great for the environment!

Why use reusable bags vs. plastic?
  • Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. That comes out to over one million per minute. Billions end up as litter each year.

  • According to the EPA, over 380 billion plastic bags, sacks and wraps are consumed in the U.S. each year.

  • Hundreds of thousands of sea turtles, whales and other marine mammals die every year from eating discarded plastic bags mistaken for food.

  • Plastic bags don’t biodegrade, they photodegrade—breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic bits contaminating soil and waterways and entering the food web when animals accidentally ingest.

  • Plastic bags are among the 12 items of debris most often found in coastal cleanups, according to the nonprofit Center for Marine Conservation.

Reusable bags also donates 1% of their sales to help the environment!


As I think I have mentioned before, being Eco-conscious and frugal seem to go hand in hand. Why not help save the planet while saving money? And do it in style too!

How can you win a b. happy reusable shopping bag from me?

It's simple, click over to reusablebags.com. Check out their site and their products, and then come back here and leave a comment or email me and tell me which are your favorite reusable products, and you will be entered to win the b. happy reusable shopping bag pictured above.

As always the winner will be chosen using a random number generator. I will announce the winner next Monday!

Good Luck and please consider switching from plastic bags to reusable bags! Each high quality reusable shopping bag you use has the potential to eliminate hundreds, if not thousands, of plastic bags over its lifetime.

    Momof3monsters: I really like the market baskets. Great for my trips to the farmer's market.

    Rachel S: The riesenthal max hauler is my favorite. The kids bags are adorable as well.

    MegansMom: I think the kids water bottles and bags are cute. Thanks for posting about this issue, I think it's important to do our part as much as we can when it comes to perserving the planet for our children.


    A. Rhodes: These bags are much more stylish than the ones they have at the store. I love the kids bags with the pig, so cute! My daughter loves anything with pigs!

    Danielle Bryant: I don't have a blogger account, so I am emailing my entry. I absolutely adore Naglene bottles. We have a few already.

    As for the bags, I am interested in the reusable produce bags. I have a few shopping bags already but always end up using plastic bags to bag my fruits & veggies With these I would not have to use plastic at all during my trip.

    Thanks for the give away!
