GreenSmart Netbook Sleeve Review/Giveaway "Holiday Gift Guide 2011"

For almost a year now I have been telling myself that I need to get a sleeve for my Netbook, so it is protected. I tend to take my Netbook with me to many different places; girl scouts, tumbling, at the office when I fill in for my mom, and all around the house. Yes, it has gotten bumped off of a few things here and there. Lucky, it is still in really good shape, but it would be nice to have it protected during its travels. GreenSmart offered to work with me on a review, it was at that time they sent me a Netbook Sleeve, which hasn't failed in exceeding my expectations since it arrived.

Neogreene is GreenSmarts substitute for neoprene. It is water-based and completely free of toxins, harmful chemicals and odor.  It requires 25% less petroleum and 25% less energy to produce and completely eliminates the need for toxic based solvent adhesives. The plush interior fabric is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.
 Netbook-Akepa $29.95: Inspired by the bird-nest Olympic stadium in Beijing, our interpretation applied to a laptop sleeve looks great and protects even better. Our plush interior fabric is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and when combined with the 4mm walls will provide optimal protection with minimal weight. This sleeve also has a specially designed gusset so your laptop will breathe. Ever think about putting your hot laptop in an insulated sleeve? Now your laptop will cool down that much faster. The neogreene is waterproof, too, so if you spill on the outside, no problem. Easy to grab zipper pulls (2, by the way) round out the thoughtfulness. This is no ordinary sleeve.
I would have to say that my GreenSmart Netbook sleeve is one of my favorite items. The first thing I noticed was the bright bold color which I think is absolutely beautiful. The walls on the inside offer great protection and are super soft, preventing my Netbook from getting scratched. The sleeve is lightweight which doesn't add any extra weight to the existing weight of the Netbook. The sleeve offers a really cool designed gusset which allows the laptop to breath, and cool down faster.

The Neogreen is waterproof, which really gives that added protection if your kids or yourself spill something or you are walking to your car in the rain. The zipper is easy to grip allowing the zipping to be easier and smoother. The name of my sleeve is the Maur Akepa which is a cute little yellow bird with a gray bill. The bird was once abundant in many of the Hawaiian Islands, the Akepa may be found foraging high in the rainforest's canopy.
