Want to sell something quick and get rich? Just add the words â€œgreenâ€ and â€œsustainable.â€ But, what happens once you sell that product, what happens when that product goes from your shelf straight into your name-branded-yellow-smiley-faced-environment-killing plastic bag? You guessed it, landfill! Well, lucky for us, Lisa Foster (founder of 1 Bag at a Time) was kind enough to introduce us to SnapSac, a style leader in reusable bags.
How big are reusable bags? Well, around 54% of female consumers between ages 18-55 describe themselves as reusable bag users. This points towards the public (women especially) really looking towards adopting eco-friendly products into their daily lives. So now that reusable bags are all the more mainstream, the next step is self-actualization: â€œIs there a reusable bag that fits ME?â€ Enter SnapSac: fashionable, sustainable & socially responsible.
Lisa was kind enough to send us a few to try out and I must admit that when the Snap Sac bags arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. The packaging around the product was minimal, beautiful, & stylish; just like their totes. Each tote comes folded up neatly with a small paper (I assume recycled) tab describing the type of bag. We received the following: Grocery Tote, Super Tote, Mega Tote, Cool Tote, Lunch Tote, and Petite Tote. All of the bags were gorgeous and featured modern and simple prints on the outside while on the inside each one had a small tab embossed with their SnapSac brand.
Now, at Creative Fluff we have to differentiate ourselves from the mainstream. Many things fashionable are unwieldy and definitely not practical. Thus itâ€™s great that these bags are sustainable; itâ€™s great that they look pretty, but do these bags work as bags?
Yes, they do. In fact, they function quite well. Iâ€™ve only had the opportunity to go hands on with the insulated lunch tote, but from my experience with it I can tell you that it does insulate my lunch at work keeping my homemade chicken & mint soup nice and fresh. Take a look at what the bag looks like filled with tasty things.
This is only our first look at these wonderful SnapSac bags. We will continue our review discussing the Pros, Cons & Bottom Line when it comes to considering these for purchase as well as any possible improvements that could be made to strengthen SnapSacâ€™s brand as well as increase their sales while still â€œDoing Goodâ€.
