Ever since I reviewed Knock Knock’s Forgettable recycled reusable totes I’ve been much better about remember to take my reusable shopping bags with me into the store. Yes, I occasionally forget but that’s okay because I need those plastic shopping bags for garbage can liners. Hey, I’m all about recycling if it keeps small garbage cans clean!
Unfortunately I’m not very good at thinking to bring one with me when I pop into a non-grocery store like Walgreens or OfficeMax or hit the mall for some quick shopping. That’s why I love Envirosax’s line of reusable totes—each one rolls up super tight so you can keep it in your handbag at all times. Envirosax pretty much leaves you without an excuse when it comes to remembering a reusable tote!
But a bit about the company first because this company is so impressive:
Envirosax bags are lightweight, portable, waterproof and each one holds the equivalent of two supermarket plastic bags thanks to reinforced seams.
We believe in environmental sustainability. Plastic bags clog drains and cause flooding. They pollute rivers and streams, killing animals and destroying plantlife. They take years to photodegrade and have a very short life span. Envirosax provide a compelling alternative to the plastic bags which are doing so much damage to our planet.
The company also donates a percentage of sales to charities and non-profit organizations dedicated to preserving the environment AND provides extensive sustainability education resources for educators, parents and children. Yeah, the bags are cool but the company is even cooler!
Envirosax sent me the Animal Planet Bag 4 (bird) to check out for this review. Um, the picture doesn’t do it justice. This not-so-little reusable tote (you’d never guess its size from that tiny little tote-roll) is about 20” by 17” and seriously chic; the print is as stylish as they come. It is well made with a weight capacity of 44 pounds. Um, that means I could carry George in it if I wanted to!
I love Envirosax’s Animal Planet line but I’m also loving their Mikado, Origami and La Boheme collections. Oh, and their Kids and Organic series are awesome as well. You’d be hard-pressed not to find at least four or five bags you simply can’t live without. And I almost forgot to mention Envirosax designs custom bags, which make a wonderful gift for customers and clients. How cool is that? (Almost as cool as my Animal Planet Bag 4…almost.)—Emily
