Flip & Tumble!

Everyday I am reminded of going green and how our land fills are quickly filling up or full. Anticipating the arrival of our newest addition to the family makes me look at my "footprint" I leave behind. I would love to say I'm switching to cloth diapers, but honestly I can't do it.


However there are other ways we can help! Many cities on my state (Washington) have started imposing some pretty interesting rules or laws to force residents to go green. For instance, Seattle forces residents to recycle curb side or they get charged more for garbage pick up. Their newest GREEN law tells residents that they have to use reusable grocery bags or pay a $.10 per bag tax. So first let me comment I agree with this law to a point. Yes we should use reusable bags (if we can remember them) but the $.10 tax should go to the store who has to pay for the plastic or paper bag not the city government.

Okay so onto my point for the day. I have found a great product that will help me go green in everyday life and also doubles as a baby/toddler toy. What a great accessory for any diaper bag!

Flip and tumble bags go from a ball to a bag in seconds! Now I'm not saying you should let your child play with this or chew on it unsupervised because it is not intended to be a true child toy. But if you are grocery shopping and you child is starting to get antsy give them a Flip and tumble 24/7 bag and let them squish it or toss it! And when you get to the check out help them turn it into a bag and fill it with your purchased goodies.
Also when you have a little accident and never seem to have a bag around pull this handy dandy bag out of your diaper bag, which really takes up less space than your cell phone and place dirty contents in it. Bags are machine washable and hang dry!

So many of your may be asking what's different about this bag or why should I use it. Simple, I have TONS of reusable bags. Many of them reside in my car. But when it comes time to check out guess what I've left them in the car. This bag seriously can fit into your purse, diaper bag or pocket so should you choose to do so. I have a very tiny purse but it fits in mine just perfectly. It also doubles as something to keep Little Man out of trouble in the store. Some times I will even give him products to put in his bag. When we get to the checkout he empties the bag and then fills it back up and helps carry it into the store.
One lucky winner will win one 24/7 bag.

What a cool bag, I have never seen this before! Thanks for the write up! I would use my flip and tumble bag for the grocery store and probably as a catch all for all of my stops vs a bag at each one...take to the car and toss in!
Thanks for the giveaway!!

this bag would totally fit better in Robby's diaper bag, rather then the bulky store bags. I am trying to be more resourceful. And I am sure like you said, Robby would love to throw it like a baseball

I would use this to replace some of my worn chico bags. My bags see a lot of use. They get hauled from grocery store, Target, Walmart, various boutiques, snack bag for day trips, car trips and storage bag for craft projects. I never seem to have enough to go around.

I would also love to have this to carry in my diaper bag for those times when I need an extra bag. It would definitely come in handy when I bring my 2-year-old and 8-week-old to the library and don't have a free hand to carry the books or when we go to the grocery store so we don't bring home more wasted bags.

Thanks!
