I introduced you to the uber cool company, BagInspiration , over a year ago. They have been a longstanding sponsor of Groovy Green Livin and I thank them for their continued support. This company embraces the epitome of brands I love to work with: indie, groovy green companies working towards promoting a greener lifestyle.
Founded by two ambitious mothers, Stefanie and Michelle, BagInspiration has eco-friendly bags of all types. They bring together stylish purses and handbags made of recycled or sustainable materials such as inner tube handbags, hemp bags and seat belt bags. Their bags are cool, hip and best of all groovy green!
Want to know a little secret? I feel extra connected to this company because they are located in my hometown, Madison, Wisconsin. My sister introduced me to these lovely ladies and the rest is history. Now I feel extra lucky because they sent me one of their eco-friendly bags to test out. It doesn’t end there-they have also agreed to share the love and give one of my devoted readers a be-bop bag of their own.
The Be-Bop Bag
First off the name makes you want to wear the bag all the time. Be-Bop: it’s just a happy name. I was sent the purple Smateria Be Bop Shoulder Bag and it was love at first sight. It’s made from repurposed mosquito netting and can be worn cross body or on your shoulder. The bag is the perfect size for carrying around an iPad. It has a magnetic snap to hold the bag closed. I had a small amount of difficulty keeping the snap closed-probably because the bag was overflowing with my ‘stuff’. I really liked the zippered compartment inside for valuables. Smateria was established in Cambodia in 2006 by two Italian friends who believed in the 3 R’s: reducing, reusing and recycling. Their motto is “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure”.
BagInspiration has graciously agreed to give one Groovy Green Livin reader their very own Be-Bop bag valued at $45!
BagInspiration is offering Groovy Green Livin readers a special DISCOUNT CODE: GGL, which can be entered at checkout for an additional 15% off any product. Shipments come in every 6 weeks, so if there is a color wanted that they don’t carry a special order can be placed.
Disclosure: I received a Be-Bop bag for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
