upa-lala wet bag: review and giveaway!

I was so excited when this opportunity hit my inbox the other day from upa-lala. You know what is crazy? We were actually on the prowl for the perfect wet bag, I think we found our new favorite one! You all know I love cloth diapering and any chance to get you excited about it too! This is such a nice addition to our cloth diapering stash; it is big, easy to clean, and the print is so adorable!
Upa-lala eco-bags are appealing to everyone, including the environmentally conscious. Your upa-lala eco-bag can replace the use of plastic bags as they are reusable and can be machine washed and dried. They are handmade from high-quality designer fabrics with a separate layer of water-resistant material on the inside.
The-bags come in three styles; zipper closure, drawstring and backpack. All drawstring styles can be made into backpacks (with reinforced grommets and a longer drawstring). They work extremely well for containing wet or dirty items, such as damp cloth diapers, swimsuits, worn gym clothes, beach towels, etc.
You can even take it to the beach, carry it to the gym, put it in your diaper bag, or, use it for an everyday accessory. You will feel wonderful knowing that you are using an eco-friendly product and own something that is handmade, unique, functional and beautiful.

More details:
Cleaning: Upa-lala eco-bags are machine washable and dryable. We suggest to wash the bags on a warm cycle with minimal detergent. Do NOT use bleach or fabric softener. Tumble dry in the dryer or hang to dry. Never dry on high heat.
Gift Box: Eco-bags ship inside a beautiful eco-friendly box that is made of recycled paper. The boxes are acid and lignin free. They are handmade here at the upa-lala shop.
Shipping: Upa-lala eco-bags ship within 1-2 business days.

1. Drawstring details: 12” x 12” or 14” x 17”
Construction: The two layers are stitched separately with a serger to prevent wicking and/or fraying. The seams are sewn together with a 4-threaded serger to promote durability. Eco-bags are closed with a drawstring that is pulled closed from two sides. All drawstrings bags have the option to be made into a backpack-style bag, reinforced with grommets and a longer string (+$5.00).

2. Zipper Style: 12” x 12” or 14” x 17”
Construction: The two layers are stitched separately with a serger to prevent wicking and/or fraying. The seams are sewn together with a 4-threaded serger to promote durability. The eco-bags are closed with a high-quality YKK zipper and have a long zipper pull for easy opening and closing. An 8 inch long handle, lined with interface for structural integrity, features a plastic snap for easy opening and closing.

3. Snack Style: 7" x 4" or 7” x 7”
Construction: The two layers are stitched separately with a serger to prevent wicking and/or fraying. The seams are sewn together with a 4-threaded serger to promote durability. The eco-bags are closed with a high-quality YKK zipper and have a long zipper pull for easy opening and closing. A 2-inch handle is attached for easy opening and closing.
