I got two free items from Art Bird to do a review of! I never heard of the company, but after looking at the website and some of their products, I was certainly interested.

I chose the Lunch & Liberty Shoulder bag in “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!”ย and the Nuts & Bolts bag in the “Lucky in Love” option. As displayed, the Lunch & Liberty Shoulder bag is larger, and according to the website, it has a food safe lining, adjustable shoulder strap, can be easily sponge cleaned. It has a mesh pocket on the inside, where I put a waterbottle, and plenty of room. Here’s a sneak peak.

The bag costs $29.99, but again, I was sent it for free.

I used this bag when I did my Spartan race! I kept a few water bottles in it, a yogurt, some snacks, and a frozen water bottle in it in a hot car while I participated in the race. So, the sun was beaming on the car for roughly 4-5 hours, and my stuff stayed cold! I was impressed. I also really liked the bag. The Beatles are one of my favorites, and I could not resist that design. The bag was very soft, had a sturdy plastic zipper, but it did not open/close easily without trying. However, the strap was easy to adjust. 4 stars

The Nuts & Bolts (Lucky in Love) (value of $9.95) bag was more oriented toward snacks, a sandwich, or the tag even suggested to use it to carry things such as makeup. The website stated it was insulated as well, so I put a sandwich in it that I had refrigerated overnight. It is held closed by a large piece of velcro. Sadly, it did not keep my sandwich cold, but it did prevent it from being smushed in my bag so that was a plus. As a plus, as the website states, it is Earth friendly because you can use this instead of plastic bags. Woo! The bag was also awfully pretty, I think I will use it for makeup. I will have to give it 3 stars based on sandwich use/ keeping things cold, but for snacks and other things, I would give it a higher rating of a 4.

Overall, worth a try! They have some really pretty designs. Check them out!

Green Smart Javan Style Insulated Lunch Tote

Remember lunch boxes in school? Whether a tin or a bag, they usually had some type of cartoon or some pretty design that kept the lunch cool or warm until it was time for a break? And then of course, I remember the stage where it wasn’t “cool” to have a lunch box, so the switch was then made to brown paper bags (so not earth friendly!!)

Well, it’s back to lunch bags- but this time, a more sophisticated “lunch tote”! And this bag has more to offer than the standard lunch bag doodled with designs.

I was offered a gift card from CSN Stores to pick out something to do a review on, so I chose the Green Smart Javan Style Insulated Lunch Tote. I chose this because I often have to pack a day’s worth of food ahead of time, and let’s face it. Warm yogurt is not yummy, and warm water is so not as refreshing as cold! On the plus side, this lunch tote is made from Neogreene, which according to the website, “is a water-based material which allows for a much cleaner chemistry than neoprene”. Along with that, it also stated this lunch tote “Uses 25% less petroleum, 25% less energy, and eliminates toxin laden solvent adhesives to bind the fabrics to the Neogreene”.

So, I recieved my lunch tote in the mail the other day, and packed my food (from 12pm in the fridge until about 6-7 pm is when I used it). It kept my potato salad cool and my water actually quite cold, which was a plus in my opinion. I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in there, which didn’t really need to be refrigerated, but it kept fresh as well- no soggyness!

I liked that on the bottom there was a sort of loop band to put a waterbottle in laying down- saved space! I also liked the bright tangerine color, and the fact that it was a soft lunch box, so it didn’t have that square shape or rough edges.

However, this lunch tote was a bit too big for me. I sort of had to hold it by hand rather than stash it in my bag on my way out the door, because it was a bit big. Although, there is certainly plenty of room to store lots of goodies, and I like that it kept my food fresh. I think lunch bags can be suitable for all ages! ๐Ÿ™‚ย 4 stars

*S0, do you brown bag it? Or are you a user of the lunch box/bag? Please leave a comment below! ๐Ÿ™‚
