Celery Street Review and Giveaway!


It has been almost a year since we gave up the diaper bag in our family. For the most part, our daily errands don't require me to pack a massive bag of supplies, so I usually stick to using a large purse for Izzy's activities, snacks, etc. I had been contemplating buying a lunch bag to pack Izzy's lunch, snacks, and drinks in while we are out of the house for quite some time now.

So, you can imagine my excitement when I found out that we were going to be reviewing a lunch bag from Celery Street! Celery Street is a great company based out of Indianapolis that features products that are eco-friendly, recycled, reused, and refurbished. Their items include everything from lunch bags to housewares to pet items to jewelry and much, much more! I had so much fun browsing their website and getting ideas for all of my upcoming gift-giving events! Celery Street is perfectly summed up by this poem featured on their site.

Who are we?

We are trying to be green.
We raise green children.
We hang out with green people.
We discuss green topics.
We eat green food.
We drink green wine.
We recycle in green containers.
We use green toenail polish.
We paint our house green.
We turn our thermostat down
Or up (depending on the season).
We crack green jokes.
We laugh.
We start a green business.
This is fun.
This is smart.
This is green.
It’s CeleryStreet.com.

Izzy and I received the Mimi the Sardine lunch bag in Floral Pink that you see in the photo above. I LOVE this lunch bag! It serves all of our food carrying needs and it does so in a very stylish way! First off, it's easy to clean, all you have to do is wipe it off or you can even throw in the washing machine! Second of all, it really insulates your food, keeping it chilled for a good few hours. What I've been doing lately is packing Izzy's lunch in it the night before our day of errands and then just grabbing it out of the fridge in the morning. It's simple and quick, which makes my day get started much easier. Izzy loves to carry it around with her, and the handles are a great size for both adults and toddlers to hold on to. Overall, this lunch bag has not disappointed us in any way, and it has now become a staple in our traveling needs! It's also great because when Izzy is done eating her lunch I can simply roll up the bag and put it in my purse! Want to know the best part... one of you lucky ladies is going to win your choice of a Mimi the Sardine lunch bag!
