GreenSmart Messenger Bag Review and Giveaway...

****Congratulations to the winner-DustinDrama!****


We recently had the chance to review a messenger bag from GreenSmart.




About GreenSmart:
"GreenSmart is 100% dedicated to making the world greener and smarter every day. Our mission is accomplished through the eco-friendly materials in our bags and through our eco- and people-friendly manufacturing processes. We embrace supply-chain-wide social responsibility and eco-conscious concepts in everything we do. Our continued pursuit of small positive actions every day, in design, manufacturing and distribution, result in big long-term changes toward better products and a better environment. It's this mindset in product design and in eco-consciousness that has set us apart since 1995."

About the Baringo Messenger Bag:
Price: $89.95

-Roomy interior with padded laptop bay fits up to 15.6"

- Full width back slash pocket

- Side pockets on both ends

- Organization pocket under flap

Pockets and compartments make this generously proportioned messenger wonderful. Start on the back with a full width slash pocket perfect for folders, an easy access stash pocket on the flap exterior. Under the flap you'll find a broad organization pocket in a front compartment, the main body compartment, with another couple of slash pockets and in the back, a separately padded laptop bay (fits up to 15.6"). And it wouldn't be complete if we did not call out the end pockets as well for cellphone or water bottle, the handle for easy pickup and the 31 plastic bottles that won't be in landfill that instead are the fabrics of the bag."

What we thought: I am really enjoying the Baringo Messenger Bag from GreenSmart. We upgraded our diaper bag to this stylish bag and it has worked wonderfully. I can fit more into it and the numerous compartments keep things really well organized. I like the various ways the bag can be carried...over the shoulder, across the body or by the handle. Of course, the bag is gorgeous and really well made and it makes me feel good to know I am using an eco-friendly product. If you are a reader of this blog, you know we are always looking for ways to reduce our family's carbon footprint, so when I find an item that is high-quality, performs well and Earth-friendly I am a happy camper:) GreenSmart products do just that. For a variety of bags, laptop sleeves and more you should visit GreenSmart. Be eco-friendly and fashionable at the same time:) ABCD Diaries gives the Baringo Bag from GreenSmart an A+!
