GreenSmart Review and Giveaway



After making bags since 1995 in the same manner as every other supplier in the world under the brand name Shoreline, with the same basic materials available at that at time, we decided to take a fresh look at aligning the ethical social practices of our Company with ethical product materials and manufacturing practices. As the specifiers of everything that goes into every product we made, we chose to hold ourselves accountable for the actions of our suppliers working on our behalf and for the consumers who did not know any better when they purchased our products. That was 2006.

From that period forward we began the transformational process of replacing product materials with eco-conscious materials, teaching our retail customers about the materials, phasing out existing products and materials. What we did was nothing short of a do-over. Within 30 months, we had converted our supply chain to greener processes, greener materials and greener thinking.

We are just beginning. Our primary objective with every product and material we make or use is eco-progress. There is no eco-perfect and we are not perfect either. We plan to continue to improve. We started with our practical usage of rPET polyester derived from the recycling of PET water and soda bottles, and in 2009 our introduction of neogreene, neoprene reinvented. We think there is no limit as to the ways GreenSmart may be able to bring greener choices to you. We can barely wait to see what is next.


GreenSmart provided me with two items to review; a laptop sleeve and a wine carrier.

GreenSmart describes the laptop sleeve as The sleeve is the more traditional solution for protecting a laptop inside your briefcase or backpack. A simple double zipper closure, padded walls and a couple of handy pull tabs so you can lift the sleeve out of your bag easily. Since a sleeve weighs only 7 ounces, you are not going to be lugging any extra weight in order to achieve additional protection, that is for sure. I love the look and feel of the laptop case. It didn't add any extra bulk and only a minimal amount of weight as compared to other laptop cases I've used. I definitely felt like my lap top was protected and love that it's a "green" product!



GreenSmart describes the wine carrier as One bottle or two. Wherever you go, you will be carrying your wine in style and in a completely non-toxic, protective transport. Keep your white wines chilled and any wine drinkable on a hot picnic day. Whether you are going to a concert or a picnic or the back yard bar-b-que down the street, your wine will arrive at proper temperature for the highest appreciation by everyone, especially you.Neogreene has twice the insulating value of neoprene, so your beverages will maintain their temperature longer. The easy load front means getting your bottles in and out is easy, too. We cinched the collar to different neck sizes and even cut the front a little low so you can interchange syrah for chardonnay and still have your bottles snugly fitted for safe travels. I carried many wine bottles over the Christmas Holiday and everyone loved the wine carrier. It kept the bottles chilled and ready to serve without having to put in the fridge at the various parties I attended. I love it and will definitely be getting some use out of it!
