We were recently sent a new diaper bag from Haba to check out. What makes it uber-special (and qualified them for Technology Tuesday) is that is made from recycled bottles!
This bag is unlike any other diaper bag on the market! Not only is it attractive and stylish enough to be used on a daily basis by Mom, long after the babies have grown, but its lightweight and durable polyester material is made almost entirely from recycled plastic bottles.And it is e free of PVC, AZO, Phthalates, Nickel and Cadmium. In addition to making a fashion statement, parents who sport this bag will also be making an environmental statement!
But as great as the environmental state is with this bag, it's HOW roomy and lightweight it is!
Check out ALL those pockets! There are pockets upon pockets. Add in a cool accessory pack and you've got a bag that will literally last you from birth through high school! Seriously! You know once your kids start extra curricular activities you have to carry around change of clothes, your purse, the DSLR camera bag, the video camera....Whew it's a lot! With this bag, you can carry it all in ONE bag!
The large main inside compartment includes a water-repellent zipper wet pocket to store any damp or soiled items you would like to keep separated from other things, as well as a large hook and loop pocket and elastic pouch ideal for a water bottle. Four front 'bonus' compartments are located at the base of each handle that are ideal for sunglasses and your smartphone. One of the bonus pockets includes two pen loops, and another includes a removable hook for keys. Plus on the front of the bag, there is a large vertical zipper that opens up to reveal a large insulated pocket for keeping food items cool .Who needs a purse, lunch tote and camera bag, when you have the Green Label Bag! This bag solves ALL your carry issues!
The included accessory package includes a water-repellent, padded changing mat in a complimentary color, an insulated, removable bottle holder with carbiner clip, so it can clip to the side of your bag or stroller, a removable zipper pouch ideal for make-up, coins or other small items that you want secured inside the bag, and a removable compartment for baby food jars and compartment for baby wipes (oops not pictured above). Plus you get stroller hooks and an adjustable shoulder strap for easy change outs!
One of my BFs recently had a car burglary and lost her diaper bag, that was more of a purse than a diaper bag, and of course, no longer available. So when the opportunity came to check out this cool new bag, she wa smore than happy to help me out!
Stephanie has a 2 month old and a 2 yr old, besides a daughter in elementary school. So she really needs to be able to condense as much as possible, no matter where she is off to. Here are her thoughts on the bag:
This bag is SO BIG inside! I can carry 4 sets of infant and 3T clothes in case of emergency, plus other things I don't need all that often, besides the daily essentials like baby wipes and diapers! The amount of external pockets is also perfect for everything that would normally go in my purse (you know when you don't have the kids with you, like lipstick, makeup, and sanitary pads. My son has severe food allergies, so I have to carry special food with me for him, so the insulted pocket lets me carry his lunch box with an slim ice pack, while the bottle holder has his water (I'm breastfeeding, so not baby bottles needed), and NOT have to carry a lunch tote too. When you're trying to wrangle a 3 yr old and carry an infant in a car carrier, being able to grab JUST one back is a revelation!
It is in an awesome DENIM color too. I LIVE in blue jeans and the casualness of this bag is perfect for me. yet is has sturdy hardware, so I know I can count on it not to fail! Plus it's SEXY looking! I like how I can make the flaps fold down and carry it with the shoulder strap. It changes the look up so easily! Even the bottom is sexy with the coordinating colored leather strap.
Can you tell she loves the bag, a WHOLE lot? LOL, yup, she does!
We both said the same thing- this is the perfect baby shower present- it's a bag that will keep on giving! The bag comes in 4 colors (although they are starting to sell out, due to the holiday rush). It is the one gift everyone will want under the tree this year!
