Shop In Style with Glamorous its-laS-tik Bags

Tired of boring reusable shopping bags that have no style, no glitz, no glamor?

Well, its-laS-tik has the solution- fun, fashionable and brightly colored bags made in New Orleans.

its-laS-tik bags are not really made of green materials (many reusable bags are not) but they do support a green lifestyle by giving you a fun bag that you can use over and over again and they even offer recycling when you are done with your bags- the material from the bags will be made into rugs and other products.

Another great green thing about its-laS-tik is that a percentage of all sales are donated to Hope House in New Orleans which helps give back to the people and communities that were ravaged by hurricane Katrina.

its-laS-tik bags are unique in the fact that they are very stretchy and bouncy. They move with you as you walk and can hold up to 45 pounds of whatever you want to put in the bag. Great for shopping trips, trips to the gym, school, or for whenever you need a bag and face it girls most of us always need one. I know I never travel light. When I leave the house it is to shop, run errands or deal with my kids which means I always have a ton of stuff to carry.

Now I have a fun option, though I think my daughter has claimed it for herself because as soon as she seen my shiny, silver its-laS-tik bag her words were “oooh, it’s shiny” which means “oooh, I want it”. So I think I lost it before I really had the chance to test it out. I am sure with all of our trips to the library we’ll be able to put it to good use.

The bags come in a wide variety of shiny metallics, fun prints, and colorful solids- surely something for everyone.
