TUGS offers a wide variety of eco-friendly products for your home, your office, and your family.  With all of their natural, organic, recycled, and sustainable options, they’re the ultimate destination for the green buyer.  At The Ultimate Green Store, you can rest assured that anything you purchase will be eco-friendly and fabulous, like the Recycled Seatbelt Campus Tote Bag from Maggie Bags that they recently sent me.

Maggie Bags Campus Tote in Light GrayThis is not my first experience with Maggie Bags; I fell in love with the concept after reading about it on another blog a few years ago and just had to have one.  Every year, enormous amounts of seat belt webbing go unused by auto makers because it’s been rejected for minor issues, such as color variations.  Maggie Bags takes this unwanted but still useful material and creates stylish and practical handbags, totes, and accessories.

As you know, seat belt webbing is designed to protect you in the event of an accident, so the material is amazingly durable.  That’s definitely a feature you want in a bag!  I’ve had my original bag for two years now; I’ve used it in all kinds of conditions, and it still looks new.  This sturdy bag can certainly take a beating (or ten).

Let’s talk functionality.  The Campus Tote is a large shoulder bag that will hold a lot of stuff yet manages to never feel bulky.  (I’ve got everything from a Kindle to a penguin in mine, and there is still plenty of room for more.)  The pretty, purple-lined interior features three pockets:  a zippered pocket, a key pocket, and a cell phone pocket.  Four nickel-plated feet keep your bag from ever touching the dirty and potentially damaging ground.  The feet, combined with the flat bottom of the bag, keep the tote upright when you want to set it down somewhere.  No more tipped-over totes!  My favorite thing about this bag is that it zips closed at the top to protect your items from the elements or from falling out.  (I’m famous for dropping things.)

Maggie Bags Campus Tote

The Campus Tote is both functional and fashionable, and like all Maggie Bags, it also makes a great conversation piece.  When people see my bag for the first time, they are just fascinated by the idea and want to know everything about it.  Being a big supporter of all things green, I’m more than happy to oblige. 

I hope to add more Maggie Bags to my collection soon; both the Cicily Tote and the Small Tote Handbag have caught my eye.  Which of the Maggie Bags do you like best?  All of the ones I’ve mentioned (and more) can be found at The Ultimate Green Store, along with a huge selection of fashion and beauty products made with your health and the health of the planet in mind.  You deserve a new look; let’s make it eco-friendly too!
