ESPEROS Carry Hope Review & Giveaway

ESPEROS comes from the Spanish verb "esperar": HOPE. ESPEROS is a brand of bags that Carry Hope to families in the developing world by providing children access to education through the sale of these bags.
Market ToteI'm always looking for a good tote bag. We take activities to do and gluten free/dairy free snacks or food just about everywhere we go.

I chose a market tote in navy with a chocolate brown trim ("poppy" according to the marketing info). The market tote is priced at $54.99 and a portion of the sales goes to educate a needy child in another country.

ESPEROS makes backpacks, smaller totes, travel bags, a laptop bag, a variety of items for toting our stuff.

The last tote bag that I was given (back in May) was a freebie at an event and the fabric shredded into a big hole before I got home with it. I don't want any more bags like that one.

I need a sturdy tote made from solid, strong fabric with strong rivets/snaps and stitching, big enough for large books if that is the item of the day that we are transporting. And the ESPEROS market tote delivers. The fabric is heavy duty, the straps are doubled for strength and comfort (I don't have another bag with straps like this one in my collection of totes). The bottom is flat and the bag stands on it's own for loading or for resting - it doesn't keep falling over, spilling contents and I don't have to keep righting it.

I chose the market tote for its large size and for the removable pocket inside. I can unsnap the pocket and move it to my purse or carry it as a clutch.

The other tall bags I own are narrow - by the time I add several coloring books, a clipboard, and a variety of crayons and markers, my daughter can't look around at the items inside. My wider totes don't hold tall coloring books well; the tall items tend to lean and fall out. The ESPEROS market bag is tall enough to contain tall books and  wide enough that the items fit more loosely so that my child can browse inside the bag without removing every item to see what's inside, important while we travel.

The best part is that a purchase provides a year of school to a child in a developing country.
