Giveaway: Neela Bags Denali Pack! (CLOSED)

Chances are if you shop a lot, you end with a lot of bags. But did you ever stop to wonder what these bags are doing to the environment?

Americans use hundreds of billions (yes billions) of plastic and paper bags each year. We pick them up every time we turn around. Often we don't even need the bags we take. And the price our environment pays for this? We're using 12
million barrels of oil for plastic bag production each year! That's crazy!

Lately, it seems many of our stores have been promoting and giving away free reusable bags to try and solve this problem. However some of these bags are of poor quality (they rip) or are bulky and therefore impractical. For me, if I can't throw them in my purse or coupon bag (yep, I have a bag just for coupons!) they end up getting left in the car most of the time. Fortunately Neela Bags has a solution for this! Enter the Denali Pack! These machine washable nylon totes are strong enough to carry your stuff and keep you looking good while doing it! They come in a range of colors and all fit in their own individual pouches. The Denali pack includes five Neela totes and a bag to carry them all in!

About the Denali Pack:
  • Tote is simple to fold and slides easily into convenient pouch
  • Gusseted bottom so it stands up on its own when filled
  • Comfortable 2.5-inch wide straps which can be worn over your shoulder
  • Dimensions when open: 14” W x 14”H (22.5” including straps)
  • Dimensions when closed: 5” W x 5” H
  • Holds up to 25 pounds with regular use
  • Pouch features velcro flap closure
  • Made from lightweight, durable 100% rip-stop nylon
  • Machine wash cold, hang to dry

Neela bags has offered to giveaway FIVE of their super stylish Denali Packs to five Frugal and Fabulous readers!!!

This giveaway begins Sunday, July 19 and ends Friday, July 24. Each night this week (starting Monday) I will pick one entry at random to receive a Denali pack.

I love bags, and these look great. My favorite product on their website is the market pack in charcoal damask. But, since the giveaway is for the Denali pack, I like the bright pack the best. I'm hopping up and down, hoping I'll win. :-)
