Blue Q Gifts review and giveaway – CLOSED!!!

Don’t you love when you stumble on a new site with fun products? When I found Blue Q I fell in love with their bags. These aren’t just regular bags, they are made from recycled plastic bottles and grain sacks that has been spun into cool and kitschy designs that are super strong and durable. Even better, 1% of the sales from any of their bags go to programs such as the Nature Conservancy. Blue Q has committed to a minimum contribution of $50,000 by April 2011.

This past weekend I used the Overnighter to pack mine, Rob’s, Shaun’s and Shae’s clothes for a weekend at my parents. Everything FIT! To get an idea of the real size of the overnighter Shae is pictured above sitting in it having her snack. There was no hesitation that the bag was going to be able to support the weight either. With long woven straps it can be slung over your shoulder for easy carrying and its material allows for easy clean-up against spills and dirty shoes. The shopper tote (pictured to the right of the Shae in the overnighter)has come in so handy on several occasions. At the grocery store I handles about 2 times more than a regular plastic bag and I was able to tote all the decoration and last minute items for my sister’s baby shower; paper cutter, pens, markers, tape, hole punch, scissors, folders with shower games, box for raffle, tablecloths, napkins, favors, cosmetic bag, extra shoes, decorations and more odds and ends. It stood up straight the whole time allowing me to reach in and grab whatever I needed with fewer struggles like with floppy reusable bags.

Blue Q is about more than these cool recycled bags. They’ve got a fun mix of catchy home décor, luxurious bath products and cheesy notions to even make stuffed shirts snort with laughter. Keeping with the green message Blue Q has recently introduced stainless steel water bottles. This 20oz. bottles are decorated with original designs using lead-free inks and DO NOT have a resin or plastic lining, keeping your water chemical free. Here is the adorable water bottle I’ve been using daily around the house, isn’t he adorable, love the gapped toothed grin.
