ECOzip Review and Giveaway


Since the fall of the economy, my husband and I have been looking for ways to save money from cutting back on non-essential items and taking our lunches to school and work with us. Well recently I was given the opportunity to review some of the storage bags from ECOzip to help us take our lunches and I have to say…we love them.

About ECOzip (taken from website):

Ecozip Multi-Compartment Storage Bags w/ 3 zip technology gives you more bag! Use as a split bag or unzip center and use the whole bag!!

Get more with less!! Our goal is to create a more conscious awareness of how we use everyday products that make our lives easier.

Save Bags…Save money up to 3X the value! Ecozip gives you the option to use as a FULL bag or a SPLIT bag!

Keep it separate….or bring it together!
Use Ecozip to store….
Leftovers-Wet and Dry snacks-Travel-Pre-prepped foods.

Our Thoughts:

We were sent a sample of all three bag sizes to review and I couldn’t wait for them to arrive since we are constantly taking our lunch and I’m always looking for the perfect bag to keep “Bug’s” snacks on hand. We began using them when they arrived and we used our samples for many different storage solutions.

Naturally we used the snack/sandwich bags for just that to pack our lunches and snacks! What I love most about Ecozip sandwich/snack bags is their convent zipper bag with 2 pouches, I love that I can pack an entire lunch for my husband using ONE zipper bag, I can put his sandwich in one compartment, chips or his favorite white chocolate chip macadamia cookies in the last compartment, to save on the use of 2 separate plastic bags!

Next we used our Storage/Quart bags to keep “Bug’s” snack for pre-school in. He loves to take fruits and veggies especially celery so this is an amazing baggie for him. I love that I am able to give him the option of different fruits or veggies, all in one baggie. I love that I can fit several sticks of celery in this baggie just the right size for him as well as slice up a whole medium apple and it all fits! I generally make him up a fruit snack, veggie snack and send him some of his favorite chocolate animal crackers!

Ok so we also got the chance to review the storage/gallon bags and I have to say this one is probably my favorite size of the three for the simple fact…..I can easily carry my must have make-up products with me nice and separated but in one convent bag. Since my husband has to work overnight on Thursdays, I generally spend the night with my parents so I love that I can take all my make-up and personal items with me in one easy to carry bag. Now even though I use this bag for make-up purposes. I have a feeling it would also make a wonderful bag to store a full dinner for one in, if you are on the go.

So you know how we decided to use our baggies but I bet your wondering how well they hold up right? A zipper bag with 3 different usages is too good to be true right…nope, these are some very durable baggies. And just to show you how durable…I have been using the same gallon baggie since it arrived in late January/early February! We have also washed and reused some of the other baggies as well, since they work fine using them more than once we are both saving money and keeping unnecessary trash out of the dump.

Bottom Line:

As you can see there are so many different uses for Ecozip bags and I’m sure you will find a new and unique way to use them around your home. I’ve got so many ideas to store some of my jewelry and craft supplies as well as storing some of “Bug’s” smaller toy sets since they are so durable and well organized! Really the possibilities for use is endless..the only set back I can see is that I can’t find them in any of the stores around here.

If you are looking to save some money on plastic bags and help keep unnecessary trash out of the land fields I highly recommend picking up some of the Ecozip baggies!
