Net Effects Traders Fashionable Bags and Totes: a gift you can feel great about giving!

As Mother’s Day nears this weekend, some of us are still scrambling to get last minute gifts. I would love to introduce you to this brand NEW collection of amazing zero-waste bags and totes made by Cambodian designers for NET Effects, each constructed out of repurposed pieces of industrial and agricultural remnants into a bag that exudes style and a confident sense of culture, social responsibility, and a well-traveled woman.

Halo Hair Extensions

I am loving the Terra Tote – a go-anywhere sturdy tote that holds all your necessities while out shopping. The inside pockets hold your phone and beauty items in place, and there is a strap with hook to keep track of keys. I love the Sunflower Yellow but it also comes in five other fun and trendy colors: black, bright orange, apple green, rust and silver grey.

NET Effects was created to champion sustainable and positive change for the disenfranchised women of Cambodia, providing unbeatable work conditions, quality training and good pay. A portion of each sale benefits Nothing But Nets, an organization providing mosquito nets to families in need.

Philanthropy is a central theme to NetEffects. Giving any of these bags will benefit more than just the mom you’re buying it for, it will support entrepreneurs and startups that carry a social mission…Truly a gift you can feel great about giving!

    The tote itself looks great. I could use that to hold a lot of things.

  5. Barbara
    05/17/2016 / 12:09 pm

    The Fillerina sounds intriguing, not that Mom or I have wrinkles. *cough* I love the whole package, I might fight her for some of it. 🙂

  6. 05/16/2016 / 12:14 am

    I really like the sleekness and deep color on this Hair Dryer. I tossed my last dryer because it stopped working and I never replaced it. This morning it was cold so I wished I had one.

  7. Emily Endrizzi

    I think the NetEffect tote bags are very unique and stylish. I love that they are created using found and repurposed materials and that they are helping women in Cambodia with jobs. It’s really a win-win product.

  8. 05/13/2016 / 7:31 pm

    I like that the causes are focused on women in less-than-desirable circumstances.

  9. Rust
    05/13/2016 / 6:43 pm

    I love all of the products ….they all are about making Mom feel special and going that extra little bit for feel-good-about-yourself. Any one of the would make a wonderful gift.

    I like that net effects donates to families of cambodia and the nets help prevent the spread of disease. I like the tea because of the health benefits of tea.

    I would really like to try the Hot Tools® 1” Smart Touch Salon Flat Iron as I have really curly hair and have never used a straightener on it. I like that the Titanium Micro-shine® styling surface creates frizz-free, smooth, shiny styles.

    These are so awesome. I would be most excited to win the The Hot Tools Turbo IONIC Dryer. I need a new hair dryed and love the design of this! These are great products!

  17. Eileen Richter
    05/11/2016 / 6:25 am

    COnsidering the high demand and want for detox and health products, I d love the Dr. Teals products. A lot of these would be nice to put in a gift basket. And of course the hair care items would be nice for any mom of any age.
    The Net Effects bags are genius! I think the next generations are going to HAVE to be more about repurposing. Seems like younger gen is already looking at our wastefulness and high living with big home and toss away furniture, clothing, etc. and wanting that “less is more lifestyle”. To do this AND give to a good cause and start ups…very cool!

    I really need a new hair dryer and the Hot Tools turbo ionic dryer sounds great. I have a very, very old one right now and have heard so many good things about ionic dryers. I have read that they help keep your hair smoother than older types.

  32. 05/08/2016 / 11:26 pm

    I like the Net Effects, often we forget less fortunate and take too much care in what we have or dont have when there a a lot more people with a lot worse problems than our own, what are often trivial problems in the larger scope of things.

  33. Colette P.
    05/08/2016 / 10:40 pm

    Net Effects seems like a very worthy cause! It truly does so much good! These prizes are awesome, my mom’s hair is going to look so nice, the tote is great and she can relax with a mug of tea! 🙂

  52. Katy
    05/06/2016 / 12:44 am

    That tote is so cute and is a great size! I love it when a great product matches up with a great cause! I love that they’re giving mosquito nets to families. It is upsetting to know that a net- something so simple- could have saved lives. I’m glad to know they’re doing something about it!

  53. Ellie Wright
    05/06/2016 / 12:02 am

    I love that Terra Tote and the fact that some of the purchase price goes towards Net effects. I had never heard of it before, but is certainly a worthy cause.
