One of my very first "going green" adventures (and one of the first posts on my blog) was switching to Family Cloth. I still use Family Cloth and still very much love it, especially now that I have a Planet Wise Wet/Dry Bag!
First of all, Planet Wise is a great company! It is Nikki and Jesse Maynard, a husband and wife team working together to create quality products while following responsible environmental and social business practices. Planet Wise is a family-friendly company who strives to use as many USA-made materials as possible in their products.
Products which are truly top quality! I have many friends who cloth diaper who swear by their Planet Wise Wet Bags and Pail Liners. They love the quality, the sturdiness, and the appearance of their Planet Wise products. You can choose from a stylish Wet Bag, Wet/Dry Bag, Hanging Wet/Dry Bag, MINI Wet/Dry Bag, Swim/Diaper Bag, or Diaper Pail Liner for all of your cloth diapering (and other) needs.
Planet Wise Wet/Dry Bag for Family Cloth and have also used it on a recently trip to Puerto Vallarta so I can separate my wet bathing suits from the rest of my luggage. It works great for containing moisture and odors in one compartment while keeping another pocket open for "dry" products" (for me, I store tampons here. For CD Mom's you can keep clean diapers and wipes here!). I know others who use them for trips to the swimming pool or beach in the summer. And I even know one friend who uses a Planet Wise MINI Wet/Dry Bag as her daughter's lunch bag after one-too-many juice box explosions in her regular lunch bag! The Swim/Diaper Bags would also make great reusable shopping bags to help reduce plastic bag waste.
Did I mention already that these bags are also very beautiful and stylish? When picking the pattern of my Planet Wise Wet/Dry Bag I will admit that I struggled a bit. In fact, I almost picked up a couple of bags simply because I couldn't choose! I eventually opted for the Aqua Swirl pattern but other patterns like the Fiesta, Green Meadow, Playful Paisley, and River Rock caught my eye. In fact, I think choosing which fabric I liked best was the only thing about Planet Wise and their products that I found difficult!
What I Love: Planet Wise is a wonderful American company with great family values. Their products are top of the line in the Wet Bag industry. They are reliable, strong, and beautiful. The price is right on these bags as well, especially considering you can get many, many years of regular use out of just one bag! Planet Wise products can also be found in many Brick and Mortar stores all over the US, Canada, and the rest of the world!
What I Don't Love: I really cannot think of anything! From the quality to the price to the availability, Planet Wise products get nothing but love from me!
Got that Mom-To-Be in mind for a Planet Wise Product? Awesome! You can purchase Planet Wise products from one of the many online and in store retailers that carry Planet Wise products!
Planet Wise is offering on Eco-Friendly and Frugal reader a free Planet Wise Wet/Dry Bag in the pattern of their choosing!
