ThrifTee Gear Up-Cycled, Eco-Friendly Lunch Bag Review & Giveaway

My daughter Rose is 10 and starts 6th grade (Middle School) this year. I remember not wanting to take sack lunches to school because at that age - lunch boxes aren't really cool! ThrifTee Gear helps solve this dilemma by providing a "cool" lunch bag that your child/tween/teen helps create which in turn increases the chances of better nutrition of a home-packed lunch, less stressed lunch breaks, and a green, healthy lunch style while still allowing your child to maintain their unique personality.

ThrifTee Gear Cool Reusable Lunch bags are made from an upcycled product, they are machine washable, reusable, water resistant, bully resistant, and mom made. The bags are lined with a food safe lining, they are soft and conform to the size of the contents creating a casual, comfortable bag, minimal in size.

The price for a ThrifTee Gear Original Lunchbag is $19.95, the Back Pack Lunchbag is $25.95.  Shipping is $2 anywhere in the USA and International shipping is available. 

Custom bags made from a customer’s own t-shirt are also available and a popular choice. The Custom ThrifTee Gear Cool Original Lunchbag is $24.95, the Custom Back Pack is $29.95 and includes two way shipping, meaning that once an order is placed customers will receive a postage paid mailer in which to send in their own t-shirt. This makes it simple for busy families to have their t-shirts transformed quickly and easily. No need to find a shipping envelope, no need to go to the post office. Just place your t-shirt in the envelope with the submission form and drop it into any mailbox including the one in front of your home. Once submissions are received, bags are on their way back home within one week.

Looking for a unique fundraiser for your school, church or organization? ThrifTee Gear also offers some fundraising opportunities.

ThrifTee Gear let us review one of their Custom Lunchbags made from one of our t-shirts. Rose has a t-shirt from her Daddy’s hometown in Germany that my inlaws gave her and she outgrew it years ago so I have had it tucked away to save for her as a keepsake. I thought this was the perfect way to up-cycle this t-shirt and give it a new purpose!! We sent the t-shirt along in the postage paid envelope and got it back in no time! Rose was so excited about her new bag and I can’t wait to show Oma and Opa that their gift to Rose now will be used in middle school.
