Flip and Tumble Bag Giveaway!

And the winners: Jamie who said "Too cool!! I love the lime green!!", Joanne who said "I would love to have one of these bags! Really enjoy reading your blog too!"and Sassymonkey who said "Ohh those are darned cute! Love the lime! (I'm a bit of a green girl...)"! Email me at talk at ecochick dot ca and send me your address!

So. Excited!

A package arrived at ecochick headquarters today, containing a bunch of soft, squashy, lightweight, colorful balls. Balls you can easily chuck into your handbag and not even notice, until you find yourself at a checkout and in need of a bag - and then you reach in and dig it out and pop it open and voila! Useful, big, uber-fun bag. And when you're done, you can squash it into a little ball again, ready for the next trip. How cool is that?

These soft, colorful balls are from the awesome chicks at Flip and Tumble - and ecochick has three to give away!

The bags cost $12 each on their website and come in a wide range of colours. Shipping to Canada costs a bit, but if you go in on an order with a few friends you can spread the shipping costs around - and having my hands on these bags, I can say that they are definitely worth the purchase. After I use the rest of my reusable bags, I hang them at the door to take with me next time I go out - and I forget them a lot more than I should. After I use these, putting them away will involve automatically crumpling them up and chucking them in my handbag, so I will never be stuck bagless again. And, they are in very cool, hip colours, which makes them awesomely fun to use.

You want a Flip and Tumble 24-7 bag from ecochick? Then comment on this post by Friday, June 13, telling me what your favourite bag colour is from their website. If your name is one of the lucky giveaway recipients, I'll do my best to accommodate your favourite colour (no guarantees)! Make sure you check back after the 15th to see if you're getting a bag - I'll need you to send me your mailing address.

Or, if you can't stand the odds, you can head over to their website and order a whole bunch on your own. Thanks to the ladies at Flip and Tumble for letting us know about their product!

UPDATED: I just got back from a trip to pick up food and booze. I used my bags. And people were totally staring covetously as I flipped open my little green ball and - voila - packed away my apples. LOVE these bags!

LOVE THEM! WANT ONE. I like all of them, except the raspberry one. I especially like the black, sage, and blue one. Yep, I'm boring.

Jen said...

Love the raspberry! I have all my bulky grocery bag in my trunk, but it would be great to have one in my bag!

SB said...

I would love to win one of these. Really, any colour would be good, but I do like the aqua/sky colour.

I'm embarassed to say that I don't have ANY reuseable bags yet, because I know I'll constantly forget them at home. If they were in my purse or diaper bag, I'd have no excuse! Think of the good you'd be doing for the environment if I won! :oP

Morgan said...

I love the pink!

Alexandria said...

I love that you have your hands on random bags. ;-)

And I also adore the raspberry/pink colour. I saw these at the Green Living Show and fell in love.

Lor said...

Love the lime!

sunflowergal said...

What a great idea! I love the raspberry/pink color.

Bunny B said...

I love the Aqua/Sky! :) Thank you for the chance!

Kel said...

I love the raspberry and the aqua. I have a small reusable bag in my purse now but could definitely use one that's grocery appropriate!

catgirl said...

I'm conservative... my favourites are the sage and black. The good thing about those colours is that my husband would be comfortable using them when he goes shopping. I'm not so sure I could say the same about the other colours! :-)

Jessica said...

Ooh, pick me, pick me! The best colour is lime, no question.

You know what I like about these bags? They have a long carrying strap. The other compact reusable bags I bought have short handles, and I like to keep my hands free!

Karen & Corey said...

I love the raspberry!! Cool idea!

mav said...

I am loving the Raspberry/pink!

Romy said...

Any color would do, I love them all!! Although the pink one rocks.

It's been my main focus to have lots of reusable bags at my finger tips in all the compartments of my car. No more excuses!!

Jamie said...

Too cool!! I love the lime green!!

chickadee said...

Hmmm...it's a toss up between the lime/sky and the aqua/sky. All I have now is boring black.

30 something mom.. said...

ooo I love the aqua/sky! These bags look awesome!

Polkaroo said...

I love them all! But I guess I like the lime one the best. I find reusable bags so convenient. If you always have one on you, you never have to go hunting for a bag for your shoes, or if you unexpectedly have to stop on the way home to the store or whatever. Love them!

Ally said...

My favorite is raspberry. Gime Gimme!
I'm in desperate need of help, I always forget my reusable bags at home!!

OMGOSH...my girls would LOVE these bags. I love them for the reusable fold down smallness of them, but a 2 adn 4yr old...think of the games they could play..lol...

I know my 4yr old would LOVE the pink, as anything pink has got to be the best..right...I persoanlly like the aqua!

Love your blog!

Candice said...

I love the raspberry/pink the most, but the aqua/sky one is also great!

Anonymous said...

Sweet! I have been coveting these bags for a while now!

My fave is the Aqua/ Sky but I wouldn't kick Raspberry/Pink or Lime/Sky out of bed for eating crackers either!

Irene said...

Helen said...

What a great idea! My favorite is the raspberry/pink one!

Angie said...

Love, love, love the lime.

I am so guilty of forgetting my bags at home.

Daniel said...

I was thinking about your recent plastic bag post when I was rockin' my red branded Dillon's bag the other day. I end up buying them every other trip because I ALWAYS leave them at home. That black slate number is the jam!

Andrew said...

OUUUU- My gf and I also ALWAYS forget our bags at home while we're out- these look UBER cool and easy to use! I like the black/slate bags, but I know my gf loves the aqua/sky colour. Since we're starting over in Halifax, we'd be able to have new eco bags to start on the right path!

Lynn said...

Love the aqua/sky bag. I'd love to be able to afford one of each colour.

Jennifer Merchant said...

Love the raspberry! It should be mine...

By the way, thanks for a great blog; the links you provide have given access to great alternatives to the norm. Kudos!

sparkyd said...

I like black/slate and evergreen/sage. Or whatever. Thanks for sharing!
