Sustainably Chic Reusable Bags by MY ECO {And a Special Discount!}

This post contains affiliate links.

I’m quite the sight at a grocery store.

If I’m not negotiating with my toddler son to “please get in the cart,” I’m bribing him with bite-size bakery cookies to “be a good boy while Mommy shops.” And then, of course, there is the mish-mash of reusable bags that I schlep along with me each time – a cacophony of colors, shapes and textures that are usually exploding out of my car, onto the parking lot pavement, and then thrown into the basket of my shopping cart.

Anyone with small kids knows the scenario all too well, I’m sure.

Bringing along reusable shopping bags is important to me for so many reasons – namely, because it’s a greener way to go, but also because frankly, they hold so much more, are way sturdier than the paper or plastic versions and are a heck of a lot easier to haul. The added bonus, of course, is that most grocery stores give you a few cents off your order, too, for bringing your own bags.

It makes me feel good that one small step can make a big impact (when amassed with others who bring their own grocery bags) for the environment. And with today being Earth Day, what better day to share a review of a great new product called MY ECO – and offer mom a la mode readers a special discount?

My friend, Michelle brought MY ECO bags to my attention, and I have to say, they are really fantastic. MY ECO is convenient and cool-looking – a shopping bag set with four functional, reusable bags, each specifically designed for your needs. The bags fit together like a puzzle in the shopping cart and compact nicely into one sleek self-containing case for easy toting and storage.

The 4-in-1 Bag Set ($25) — made of recycled yogurt containers! — holds the equivalent of 30 disposable grocery bags and has wide, comfortable handles. The bags are super easy to clean and are even dishwasher safe.

There’s also the 2-in-1 Bag Set ($20), which is available in four different colorways.

I absolutely LOVE that each bag is labeled (frozen, produce, glass, etc.) and all compact nicely into a chic singular zip pack. I also kinda love that My ECO bags have been featured on The Talk, Today show and even on Modern Family (I can SO see Claire Dunphy using these bags!)

As a little Earth Day bonus for mom a la mode readers, MY ECO is offering a special 20% discount on any order between today, 4/22/14 and 4/30/14. Visit http://www.myecobuy.com and enter promo code: mom20   for 20% off your order*.

Stock up! I know folks who give MY ECO bags as housewarming gifts, shower wishing wells, teacher appreciation gifts and even “little somethings” for the holidays.

Going green has never felt – or looked – so good. Happy Earth Day to all!
