I am always on the lookout for ways to green up my life but what I really love is when I find a way to look great while doing it! An organic burlap sack might be an eco-friendly way to carry my groceries home from the farmer’s market but it isn’t very attractive! I have always loved the selection of patterns available at Vera Bradley and I was thrilled when they recently sent me a few of their items to try out! I am sure you have heard of Vera Bradley but if you haven’t, here is some information about them from their website:
Guided by our founders, Patricia R. Miller and Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, Vera Bradley has earned a reputation as a leader in the gift industry. Creating stylish quilted cotton luggage, handbags and accessories, the company combines smart product designs with distinctive and colorful fabrics and trims.
I absolutely love the selection of patterns and colors available at Vera Bradley. They offer a number of products, including handbags, travel items, stationery, eyewear and accessories and their colors and styles change every season. So, how can Vera Bradley help you live a greener life? I received the Lunch Date in Camellia (shown above) to try out and it is a beautiful way to bring your lunch with you instead of eating out (SO unhealthy!) or carrying around a very ugly looking lunchbox! This bag is roomy with an interior liner that is BPA free and easy to wipe clean. It is large enough to fit most frozen entrees and features two large slip pockets on the inside (perfect for ice packs). I love that it has an ID window on the front! If you want to send this to school with your middle schooler or high school aged girl you can put their name in it in case it gets lost! I thought the bag was very roomy and it holds a good sized lunch.
I also received the shopper tote in the Viva la Vera pattern. I am so excited for the farmers markets to start up again this summer and these Vera Bradley bags will be perfect for carrying my produce in style! This bag features a silk screened design. It is sturdy, foldable and reusable and includes a hanging slip pocket inside to hold a grocery list. This is the perfect bag to help you reduce your paper and plastic bag waste when you shop. It measures 15″ x 15¼” x 5¾” so there is plenty of room inside to hold all your stuff in style!
Overall, I have been very happy with all of the items I received to review from Vera Bradley! I also love that they give back to the community through the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer, which concentrates its efforts on supporting cutting-edge breast cancer research.
My thanks to Vera Bradley for allowing me to review their products!
