Urth Bags Review and Giveaway-CLOSED



Recently, I was given the opportunity the review UrthBags. When I first came across them online I thought that the concept was amazing. UrthBags are hand-crafted from recycled materials by Fair Trade Women's Organizations and Artisans - Purses Made with a Purpose!. By owning an UrthBag, you are not only helping to protect our planet, but also to provide jobs to underprivileged women world-wide. UrthBags desire fashion forward owners who choose to live Eco-friendly lifestyles and are looking for a bag to share it with. UrthBags are ready to be taken anywhere and can be used for any occasion. They are durable, ultra-stylish and ready to be reliable companions to any lifestyle. UrthBags come in many different styles and are all made from recycled materials so you can feel good about owning one while making a bold Eco-fashion statement. From our vibrant Recycled Juice Box Bags & chic Recycled Coconut & Sea Shell Purses to our ultra-stylish Recycled Newspaper & Fashion Magazine Handbags, you're sure to find one that you'll want to take home with you.


I was lucky enough to be sent the Brooke for review. She is made from recycled juice boxes and let me tell you, she will turn heads. I cannot believe how sturdy and posh this bag is. Brooke is a large clutch that has a zippered top. It would make the most perfect makeup bag if you aren't a clutch girl! Actually, the possibilities of use are endless.

Besides juice box handbags, Urth Bags also makes handbags from magazines. Here are a couple of my absolute favorites!

This is probably my favorite handbag that UrthBags makes. Meet Jenna:


For those of you who are into yoga, let me introduce you to Julie. She will hold a yoga mat and other essentials.


UrthBags would make the absolute perfect gift for the hard to buy for person in your life be it your wife, mother or friend. Heck, just get one for yourself! I will be featuring more Urth Bags in the upcoming months so keep your eyes peeled for more Urth Bag reviews.

How would you like Brooke to come over to your house to stay? You would?! I thought so! (She is so pretty, I can't blame you for not wanting her!) The requirements are pretty simple. This mandatory entry asks that you head over to http://www.UrthBags.com and pick out your favorite lady, I mean purse. Come back here and tell me which bag is your favorite. Include your email address if it isn't in your profile.

Extra Entries include:
*Follow my blog on Google Friend Connect
*Sign up for Feedburner Email Notices on my blog (2 entries)
*Follow me @royaldixie and @UrthBags AND tweet about this contest including my URL. (Daily tweets are allowed and encouraged!)

*Fave me on Technorati

This contest will end on February 5th at NOON EST! Good Luck!

*UrthBags provided a handbag for review. They are also providing the prize for this contest. I did not receive any other compensation for writing post. The opinions here are mine, all mine!*
