Planet Friendly Birthday Present Bags

We attend a lot of kids birthday parties each year, way more than I'd like to keep track of!  One thing that has always bugged me was the disposable and one time use of the wrapping paper or gift bags that have become popular recently.  With a little help from Toys R Us (and no, this post is not their idea or inspired by a pitch... LOL), I've come up with a great compromise with my tree hugging roots.  Toys R Us is now selling super cute kid friendly shopping bags at $1.99 each (which works out to be comparable to the price of a traditional disposable gift bag).  I've purchased Toy Story themed ones as well as other well recognized characters.  But I'm sure you can find one that matches the theme of the party you are attending or other fun kid friendly one.  This is a great way to take one small step in becoming more eco-friendly without spending more money or making dramatic changes.  I love them because it's almost like adding another small present  in to the mix for the birthday kid. 

Above is my most recent one we put together for a birthday party.

We've used the same bags for the last few parties we've gone to. WHY pay that much (or more) for a gift bag which is hardly as useful?

Glad you posted it! Hope others join in!
