Great Green Giveaway: Skeeda

By now most of us know that plastic shopping bags comprise a significant amount of the world’s plastic waste, with The Wall Street Journal estimating that the United States alone consumes 100 billion shopping bags a year. 100 billion is 99.9 billion too many.

The great thing about that outrageous number is that it can be easily and dramatically downsized, one household, and one trendy reusable canvas bag at a time.

Enter three sisters with a mission and

About Skeeda

When three sisters from a small town in upstate NY combined their passion, creativity, and concern for the environment, skeeda© was born.

Driven by a commitment to reduce waste, their goal is to tap into your sense of style to motivate you to make small changes in your daily lives to ensure a better life for future generations. In fact, future generations were the inspiration for the name. They took an initial from each of their children and created the acronym skeeda.

Skeeda sent me a bag to try for a few weeks and I can honestly tell you that (I love these bags, and) they are large and in charge while still being super cute and trendy.

I’ve received compliments almost daily because I’ve been lugging my (very full) skeeda bag to and from work since receiving it. Also: they are STRONG. Mr. T strong. No, really. When I use my bags, I USE my bags, and I can vouch for the fact that while I’ve certainly dirtied mine (it’s machine washable!), it has never stopped being able to hold a serious amount of stuff while staying 100% intact.

Speaking of my chosen bag, this is it:

Cute, no?

What’s in my skeeda right this moment? Too many things to mention without embarrassing myself. But I will tell you that over the past few weeks the bag has played portable host to myriad items simultaneously, including but not limited to:

  • My purse (I’m all about consolidating)
  • My Sigg bottle
  • Three (recycled!) notebooks
  • An assortment of books on my “to-read” list
  • My lunches for work
  • My laptop
  • Beach-going attire for an overnight getaway
  • Groceries, groceries, and more groceries

But perhaps the more important question is, what will you put in yours?

    These are great looking bags. I’m all for STRONG! Our family is known for loading and loading our bags. Why carry two bags when you can STUFF all the groceries into one?? Aren’t teens known for defying physics? Thanks for the post, I’ll check the Skeeda bags out.

    Oh, Peony is definitely my favorite! But, I also like Cherry Tree for my more “reserved” days.

  5. Abbie
    March 13, 2009 | 7:44 am

    I love these bags! I would pick the Peony because it has a funky twist to it. I would use it for my lunch and grocery shopping. :)

    I love the eggshell and frost. I totally need sturdier canvass bags. I always seem to be overloading mine! Thanks for the opportunity!!!

    I really like the Watermelon. It’s a great bag to start spring with!

  11. Dawn
    March 13, 2009 | 9:39 am

    I carry my own bags too…but I seem to forget them when I shop at Target, or NON grocery stores…I have saved a ton by using them at the grocery store. All mine are from Jewel or Whole foods…and I must admit, I am a little embarassed to take them into Target, so that may be why I foget…something cute like these…might stop that…I do however ask them to NOT put my stuff in bags if I can carry it, it’s something small or large.
    I hope I win…but I just may buy my own!!

  12. Sarah
    March 13, 2009 | 9:45 am

    I LOVE the looks of these bags. Growing up with a green-before-her-time mom, I am always using my canvas/reusable bags for shopping trips. And as a purse?! I would love it!

  13. Dawn
    March 13, 2009 | 9:46 am

  14. Sarah
    March 13, 2009 | 9:47 am

    I love all the designs, but I would chose the Cherry Tree. And I would carry my laptop in it, my groceries, my diapers and wipes and snacks for my daughter! I hope I win! If not, I will be buying some!

    loving the skeeda bags and woot! that they’re super durable, i give my bags a lickin! i’m in love w/ their “peony” bag, so that would def be the one i’d pick! What to fill it with.. well there are so many options, but i think that purple purty would rock for my work/everyday-lugging-around-junk-for-3-kids bag, so like yours it would be full of a wide assortment of randomness. ;) xo

    What wouldn’t I use this bag for??? Just a few hundred ideas entered my mind..I’ll start with: books, groceries, going on the boat, to the beach, over night… They are beautiful (so much better looking than the store one I carry! Love them all, especially FROST and EGGSHELL!

  152. Cheryl
    March 16, 2009 | 11:44 pm

    Oh these are so cute I just peeked at their site and it’s a tie between Watermelon and cherry tree!
    I think they would have many uses in our house, groceries, diaper bag, throw a picnic lunch in, library books etc..

  153. valeta

  154. Leslie

  155. Leslie

    i don’t like plastic bags either, the grocery store near my house will take them back and reuse them. good for me cause it really is too much of a waste.

  161. denice p
    March 17, 2009 | 9:00 pm

    i’d choose the Stream bag cause it’s nice and summery. What I put in it are groceries. If i was going on a over nite trip i take this too. just enough for weekend. thank you

    I ran into your blog from over on Simple-Frugal-Green.

    I like the Eggshell also. And of course, I would use it for either groceries or crafts. That tends to be what I use my bags for.

  168. Jodene Gildea
    March 18, 2009 | 10:30 am

    Love the bag! I can really use this for the food store, the ones I buy there keep ripping!

  175. Meaghan
    March 18, 2009 | 5:14 pm

    The eggshell is probably my favorite, but any of them beat the plastic/paper bags you get at the store!

  176. Kathleen
    March 18, 2009 | 6:41 pm

    Oh man, that bag is adorable! And just the right size. So many totes are either so big that I find myself carrying enough stuff for a small family or so small that I have to pass up on stuff at the farmers’ market. NOT COOL.

  177. Kathleen
    March 18, 2009 | 6:44 pm

    Oh, and I’d totally go for the eggshell. The pattern is adorable and just busy enough that when I stain it, and I will, it won’t be noticeable.

  178. Angelica09

    I went to the site and I like the Eggshell or the frost. Really nice bags.
    I would also besides taking it to the grocery store, use it when I had Dr.’s appointment , ect.It would hold water a boom I am reading and lots more and I would look stylish LOL

  191. Barbara J
    March 19, 2009 | 11:09 pm

    Terrific bags. I’m all for carrying a bag that doesn’t have the name of a store on the side!

  192. Barbara J
    March 19, 2009 | 11:10 pm

    I like the watermelon stripe. It looks beachy…and I am far, far from the beach.

  193. Rosanne

    I don’t have a reusable bag, so this would be great to win.

  195. Pat

    I love these bags, both the patterns and how sturdy they are. I’d go with that polka dot one too. Thanks!

  201. Kathleen W.
    March 20, 2009 | 3:33 pm

    I’d probably pick the Frost, but the Peony is so pretty too. Maybe then my husband wouldn’t use it.

    I’d use it for toting stuff to the pool this summer, and books from the library, and everything else!

  202. Aisling
    March 20, 2009 | 8:00 pm

    Excellent giveaway – I really like their selection of patterns.

  203. Aisling
    March 20, 2009 | 8:03 pm

    If I won, I’d pick the Stream bag, and I’d probably use it for my carry-stuff-to-work bag, which frequently includes lunch, snacks, a book, an umbrella, paperwork, and more.

  204. ky2here

    March 20, 2009 | 10:44 pm

    I’m a tote bag freak and never can have enough.
    We have 2 older children with families and 2 younger. My pet peeve is using plastic bags when they come to visit or when we are traveling.
    I like to be organized and have items handy so I try to use totes instead.
    These would be perfect for those times when they need items to be carried, and how much nicer they would be in the skeeda bag.
    Thank you.

  212. Elaine
    March 21, 2009 | 11:45 am

    The patterns are awesome (so much better than just plain bags) – and the fact that they are so large is great! I know what I’m saving up to buy! Winning one would be awesome, too. *laughs*

  213. Elaine
    March 21, 2009 | 11:49 am

    Oooh – almost forgot – I think I fancy the tangerine and peony ones equally…I’ve never been very good with choosing! As for what I’d put in it? Well I prolly’ would use it to tote around my college books (start full time in May) and groceries (obviously) when I hop the bus to go shopping. ^_^

  214. Anne S
    March 21, 2009 | 12:51 pm

    Beautiful bags! I was carrying a grocery store canvas bag while running errands the other day, thinking that I would love something more stylish! Grocery bags are fine for grocery trips, but not so pretty for browsing the mall!

    My favourites are “eggshell” and “frost”.

  220. Jesselyn
    March 21, 2009 | 5:46 pm

    Hi Kerri Anne – Like you, I need a green eco-friendly bag that is big and sturdy enough to carry all of my life essentials (other than hubby and kids and cats etc…) Thanks the the great green giveaway.

  221. Jesselyn
    March 21, 2009 | 6:10 pm

    I know this is kind of cheating, but I’d go for the “Your/My Choice 3 Pak” and my choices would be:
    Tangerine, Sky and I’d have to flip a coin to decide whether to go with Berry or Olive – since both would be so lovely to carry.

    [What would I carry in them – well groceries sometimes – but also all of my essentials: notebooks (computer and paper type) facial and skin must-haves, nutritious “snacks,” and clothes for layering in case of sudden changes in weather or unexpected temperature changes in stores and restaurants!

  222. Bev
    March 21, 2009 | 8:32 pm

    What pretty bags–my favorites were the Eggshell and Tangerine. I would carry my “school stuff” –laptop, lunch, papers, etc. Thanks for the contest.

  223. mir
    March 21, 2009 | 8:36 pm

  226. Brooke

    Oh I can’t decide between the Frost and the Eggshell… Although after looking again I think maybe the Olive… akkk can’t decide
