A Call for Eco-Friendly Kids


Recently, I volunteered as a parent helper for my daughter’s school excursion.

Prior to this event, I received a note that recess and lunch should be packed into two separate disposable bags.

On the day of the excursion, almost of all the kids had their food in disposable plastic bags.  Thus, after their recess the trash can was half full of empty plastic bags…and that doesn’t include lunch yet.

My daughter was the only one using a reusable folding bag. I gave her one which she can easily fold back into a compact size.  The eco bag was small enough to fit in her pocket.

If only parents and children alike will be made more aware of the availability of fun, foldable, eco bags for kids then we can reduce the use of plastic bags.

There are various designs available on the market that any child would be proud to use her own eco-friendly reusable bag.

Plastic Bag Ban + Holiday = FoldableBags.com


I’ve always believed that every website has a story from where it all started. So here’s the story behind Foldablebags.com

Recently, one of our local major retailers removed the use of plastic bags from its stores. The management started to replace the plastic shopping bags with more eco friendly alternatives.   They started selling the green reusable bags and compostable bags in lieu of the free plastic bag that came with a purchase.

The green bags are just selling for a few cents, yet I would rather bring my goods with me or stash it in my small handbag.  If it’s too bulky for my handbag, I usually bring it back to my car before I continue with my shopping.

After awhile, the effort became more tedious for me.  Sometimes, to save on paying for the green bags I would shop at that particular store last.   Then, I would stow away the items I bought from that “no to plastic bags” store in the plastic bag that came with my purchases from another  store.

By now, you must be asking why I can’t just purchase that compostable bag or green bag for my convenience, if it only costs me a few cents.  It’s better for the environment anyway compared to using plastic bags.  Well, true, true…

However, I don’t like paying for things that I don’t need.  I’ve got too much free plastic bags in the house already and the same goes for the “go green bags” (which I use as a grocery bag only).  To add, I don’t think it’s too fashionable to be bringing these green bags around when I’m shopping.  It is also too bulky to always have it in my bag.

However, everything changed after a recent holiday in Asia.  It was the first time I took notice of  these fashionable foldable bags.  I knew they’ve been selling foldable bags locally too, but it was different when I saw this wall full of stylish foldable bags.  It really grabbed my attention to buy not one but several in different designs.

It was so compact, sturdy and fashionable too! I bought several foldable bags.  I always have one inside my frequently used bags.  Now, I don’t leave the house without one! It was so handy.  Plus, I don’t mind carrying it around when I’m shopping because it is very stylish.

My friends loved it.  People who saw me using it adored my foldable bag.  They all wanted to buy one.  If they were excited about seeing my foldable bags, I’m sure they would go crazy (like I did) over the fashionable foldable bag range I saw during my holiday.

So in my effort to buy more of these fashionable foldable bags for my friends,  I searched the internet for “foldable bags”.  There are several brands available carrying great designs. However, there is no niche store specializing on these fashionable and stylish foldable bags!  I have to go to different websites to compare and shop…

Until, I founded the Foldablebags.com  It is an eco friendly website where you can find a collection of fashionable reusable foldable bags from different merchants.  Now, it is easier to buy these wonderful foldable bags online.

My team has added an Eco Store as well where you can buy, compare and search for more eco bags and other eco friendly products.

We hope you love the products you can find in our store the way we did.  Foldablebags.com is not just a niche store.  It is a store born out of love for our products and run with passion for eco-friendly products.
