October 5, 2006 From time to time, everyone gets to regurgitate, vomit, throw up … whatever you wish to call it, it’s inevitable! Unfortunately, some people such as pregnant women, cancer patients and travellers encounter the problem frequently, and now there's a pretty way to handle it - the Red E Bag. The canvas Red E Bag folds to the size of a small clutch -- or large wallet. When sickness arises, just unsnap and you're ready. A removable black plastic liner opens wide with the bag and holds up to half a gallon of liquid. A zippered pocket on the outside is large enough to carry tissues and mints.
Inventors Jodi and Jim Carr, of As We Grow LLC, hold the patent on this useful bag. Carr got the idea when she was pregnant and experiencing morning sickness. She worked on the 26th floor of a Seattle office building. "All I could think of was being able to get sick and not be noticed," Carr said.
