Our clever pals at Chico bag have done it again! It wasn’t enough for them to take on the entire plastic bag industry and start the reusable bag revolution, now they’ve come up with a lightweight, compact bottle sling, designed to do just what the name implies….it’s a sling for your water bottle!
Made from lightweight yet durable nylon, the NPR bottle sling is the ideal companion to take with you on a walk, hike or to a music festival. It is designed to hold most bottles, including 16oz NPR Klean Kanteen. The Bottle Sling folds compactly into itself and it includes a carabineer so you can hook it anywhere when not in use. When open, it also features a large pocket for your iPod, phone or wallet, and a small pocket on the strap perfectly-sized for your lip balm, and best of all, it’s imprinted with the NPR full color logo.
In early 2004, founder Andy Keller took a trip to the local landfill after spending the day landscaping his backyard. He was horrified by how many single-use bags filled the scene. Plastic bags blanketed the landscape in a thin mix of white and beige plastic.
On his way home, he continued to notice plastic bags everywhere; caught in trees and on fence posts, half drowned in gutter puddles and blowing in the streets like urban tumbleweeds. He vowed to stop using single-use bags for good. Inspired, he dropped a few bucks on a secondhand sewing machine and began sewing what would ultimately become the first ChicoBag brand reusable bag.
ChicoBag's mission is to help humanity bag the single-use habit. They mean the wasteful, throw-away habit that overflows our landfills and clogs our oceans. They do this by advocating for waste reduction and designing the highest quality, longest lasting reusable bags.
They offer products that empower people to take an active role in solving the single-use problem. ChicoBag makes bagging the single-use habit easy.
