I'm always looking for gifts that give back, and am happy to share with you one of my absolutely favorite companies for pet lovers. Not only do they give back to animal shelters, but they also work with fair trade organizations around the globe to produce the items they offer.
Disclosure: PawZaar sent a Global Dog Bag to Lapdog Creations, free of charge, for review purposes. Lapdog Creations only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers, and all opinions expressed are my own. PawZaar is responsible for the giveaway prize. This post contains affiliate links.

You may recall we shared some of our favorite items from Pawzaar with you earlier this year. Needless to say, I have been a huge supporter of them ever since!
After all, who can resist a company that offers pet-related items that are handcrafted by global artisans - and gives back?

I made no secret of the fact that the RESCUE Tote Bag is one of my most favorite items ever. It's versatile, stylish, roomy, and best of all, shows off my love of all things rescue.
So when I heard PawZaar added a new little bag to their line, I had to have one.
The Global DOG Bag is just as stylish as the large RESCUE tote, but due to it's smaller size, it's even more versatile.
The organic cotton bag features the blue global dog logo screen printed on both sides using water-based, eco-friendly inks, and is lined with a recycled sari fabric lining (just like the RESCUE tote).
Measuring in at 5.5" x 8.3" x 2.8", the zippered pouch is just right for so many uses. I'm currently using mine to hold knitting notions, however am already thinking about getting another one to organize some smaller dog essentials in the car... and one for organizing things in my purse... and...
The uses for the Global DOG Bag are pretty much endless. It's the perfect size for your wallet and keys while running errands, or for your dog's treats, poop bags and essentials while out for a hike. You could use it as a make-up or toiletry bag, while at dog shows, to hold school or art supplies, to pack small items when traveling... the list of uses goes on and on.
Each Global DOG Bag is handmade by a fair trade cooperative in India that rescues women from trafficking situations. When you purchase it, you're not only helping homeless animals, you're helping women better their lives. Now that's a purchase you can feel good about making!
The Global DOG Bag makes the perfect gift for your dog sitter/walker/groomer, friends, and family. If you want to make it extra special, stuff it with treats, for the human or dog. PawZaar has some fabulous jewelry pieces that would fit nicely inside.
The holidays are quickly approaching and PawZaar is the perfect place to shop for your pet-loving friends! Not only will you find unique items, but you'll be helping to give back to animals in need and supporting fair trade cooperatives around the globe.
The awesome folks over at PawZaar are letting us give away a Global DOG Bag to one (1) lucky winner!
