Apolis Market Bag Review

Are Apolis Market bags the new perfect mom bag?

 

YES! I was ready to transition out of a traditional diaper bag and into something more stylish but still practical and I fell in love with the Apolis Market Bags!  I love that you can customize them and the mothers who handcraft, the Apolis Market Bags, receive Fair Trade wages, annual profit dividends, and a retirement fund!  These durable bags are made to last at least 8 years, carry over 100 lbs and in a pinch can double as an ice chest!  HELLO??  Can you say, perfect mom bag?!

STANDARD TOTE or MARKET BAG?

I use the standard tote as my daily bag and the market bag as our family/weekend bag.  It’s perfect for the beach, library, groceries, picnics, after school activities, overnight bag, ect.

I decided to use my website name Lucy Lou & Co. for the Standard Market Tote and an affirmation for the Market Bag. I am a huge believer in affirmations and manifestation.  So, seeing “Live A Great Story” on our family bag has really helped me stay positive in moments when the boys are having a hard time and melting down or when I am having my own mom meltdown. It’s just such a great reminder, that I am in charge of our story and I have the power to make it great!  Plus, it’s large enough that if we need to abort mission I just toss everything in and go.

WHO IS APOLIS?

Apolis was founded in 2004  by brothers Raan and Shea Parton with a simple idea that business can create social change. Their travels abroad immersed them in personal stories of struggle and survival and inspired them to create a business model that bridges commerce and economic development. Along with their commitment to global advocacy, they also understand the importance of sourcing and manufacturing locally. Whether it means partnering with manufacturers in Uganda, Peru, Bangladesh, or around the corner in Los Angeles, the Partons have used their model of “advocacy through industry” to empower people to determine their own future.
