These cute bags have grabbed my attention as I'm sure they will grab the attention of everyone you know - soon you'll be hearing "oh, what a cool bag, where did you get it?" Well let me tell you how I discovered these fun and fashionable eco-friendly Haiku To-Go bags...

How I discovered Haiku Bags

A love affair at first sight!

My wife and I were searching for Earth shoes the other day and we came across a website called, well I made the mistake of saying "hey look they have bags too" no sooner had the words passed my lips than I found myself pushed out of the chair and onto the floor - my bruised butt shouting out in protest.

I have to admit though that Haiku To-Go bags caught my attention as well as hers. We are both artists and let me say these eyecatching bags certainly have style!

Eco-Friendly vs Earth-Friendly - The battle of the buzz words

Hey most esteemed visitors I am a curious sort and I just thought I'd flip out this fun curious curiosity poll before I tantalize you with more cool bags from Haiku. Which term do you use or prefer when describing products that are good for the environment?

Which planet friendly term do you prefer?

The second generation Haiku Grab Bag makes use of new and improved techniques to deliver into your hands a very cute bag with even more eco-friendliness (um, I don't think that's a word but I'm sticking to it). Haiku uses cyclePET fabric which is soft yet durable and best yet made from recycled plastic bottles - each grab bag saves 15.7 plastic bottles from the landfill - and if you get thirsty you can fill your bag with water and, ok fine I don't recommend that but this Raspberry Haiku Grab Bag is definitely refreshing all on its own.

•Diagonal zip phone pocket

•Front zip pocket and an extra slip

•Rear and internal zip pockets

•Adjustable strap -- 30" expands to 57"

•Dimensions -- 8" h x 8" w x 2" d

Why are Haiku Bags Eco-Friendly?

About Sharon Eisenhauer, designer and owner of Haiku Bags

Haiku bags are the creative baby of Sharon Eisenhauer, who is the designer and owner of Haiku Bags. The inspiration for Haiku bags came during a trip to Tokyo during the adoption process for her daughter.

Sharon implemented the Karma Neutral collection of Haiku bags which use sustainable fabrics. The company also buys carbon credits to offset their footprint on the planet.

On top of that Planet Shoes, which sell these Haiku bags support sustainability and a healthy lifestyle in the products they carry by offering a CarbonFree Plus shipping alternative and have partnered with several of their brands to donate 1% for the planet through an organization aptly called 1% for the Planet.

In my humble opinion those are the kinds of companies I am proud to buy from!

This Haiku To-Go tote is one of the first to catch my eye at Planet Shoes. That gorgeous faux-leather pebbled suede is so soft you'd swear there is nothing faux about it.
