Planet Wise Inc. Review

I try to be environmentally conscious when I go about my daily activities. I use reusable bags instead of plastic ones, bring my own mug to Tim Hortons when I get coffee and recycle and compost. I know most of you are doing the same thing too as we all try to pitch in to help Mother Earth. Today I am showcasing a fabulous company who is also doing their part to pitch in and that would be none other than Planet Wise Inc!

Planet Wise Inc is a privately own family company run by a husband and wife team, Nicki and Jesse. They have developed a line of products that are both reusable and designed to replace disposable items. All their products have been thoroughly researched and are all PVC-free and lead-free (quite often you will find the paint used on zippers contains lead!). They try to use as many USA made materials as possible and maintain a strict attention to producing a quality product that is still affordable to families. I found it interesting to learn that all their products are manufactured in a locally women-owned facility.

So what kinds of products does Planet Wise Inc carry? They actually have a number of eco-friendly products including Wet Bags, Wet/Dry Bags, Diaper Pail Liners, and Swim/Diaper Bag. I received a Planet Wise Inc Wet/Dry Bag in Pink Swirl for my review. I actually don’t own anything like it and think it is fantastic! It allows you to carry both your wet and dry items in the same bag and each bag contains a wet section and a dry section. The Wet section is completely separated and sealed off so there really is no wicking or leaking at all. This is no ordinary waterproof liner either. Planet Wise Inc has discovered an innovative way to seal the seams so no liquid can escape no matter how wet of an item you stick in there. I can’t wait to use it this summer to put my wet bathing suit in.

I tried it out when John and I went on an overnight trip and I decided to use it to put my dirty clothes in. I always bring my own towels and face cloths whenever I travel (I am weird that way) and I put my wet face cloths and towel in the wet section and my dirty clothes in the dry section. The bag worked beautifully. No leaking or icky wet smell whatsoever. I think this would be a perfect product to use when out and about with your baby to store the dirty and clean cloth diapers. Regular diaper bags can really stink when you put a dirty diaper in it and I would imagine how embarrassing it is to be out in public with a rotten smell following you around. At least with the Planet Wise Inc Wet/Dry bag, the odour is completely sealed in so no one knows what little surprises awaits in that cute bag of yours. Did I mention I adore the Pink and Brown pattern? Love the style and functionality!

The Wet Bags are available in 3 styles and 20 prints.  Visit Planet Wise Inc online to purchase or find a retailer near you.
