Giveaway: Plaid Doctrine Eco Messenger Bag!

Today I am very excited to be introducing Plaid Doctrine, a travel accessories company that crafts its products from recycled bottles!

Plaid Doctrine was created by Suzanne Park, who logged 300,000+ miles traveling for work and found herself frustrated with the travel gear available today. She says, “I searched high and low for my last laptop bag. It was on the expensive side, but it fell apart after just 6 months.”

According to Suzanne, “These are the kinds of travel accessories I would’ve killed for in my days of non-stop travel. They’re good-looking, but not too trendy. They’re green. And they’re built to last. It’s a win/win/win!”

What makes Plaid Doctrine even more appealing is that nearly all of its materials are sourced domestically, and all of its goods are crafted in the USA!

Plaid Doctrine has been featured in many of my favorite blogs, such as Mashable, Geeksugar, Apartment Therapy, Treehugger, and iLounge. So when Suzanne contacted me about offering a giveaway to my readers, I couldn’t believe my good fortune and immediately said yes. :-)

Now, for the part you’ve all been waiting for…

Plaid Doctrine will be giving away the Eco Messenger Bag
(a $129 value) in argyle to one lucky reader!

The Eco Messenger bag measures 14″ x 10″ x 4″. The padded interior pocket is ideal for an iPad or a Kindle, and can even accomodate a 15″ laptop. The rear pocket can be slipped over a rolling luggage handle, and the two utility pockets expand to carry a water bottle or a small umbrella.

Crafted in downtown Seattle, this commuter bag is made from water- and stain-resistant fabrics (recycled polyester, recycled nylon, and ballistic nylon) and is sure to make a fashionable and durable addition to your travel gear!
