Envirosax: Keeping it fashionably reusable (Review & Giveaway)

A few years ago, the Ferry family jumped on the “reusable grocery bag bandwagon” and purchased oodles of the 99-cent fads from our local grocery stores.  If they were available at any checkstand, they somehow migrated directly into our my cart.  We had an epidemic on our hands and our vehicles soon became stuffed with these reusable clunkers.  Truth be told – they served the function for holding groceries (and a substantial load at that!), but they certainly wouldn’t win any awards for attractiveness.  They were fashion faux paus in the worst.

But, there is hope on the horizon…

No more frumpy grocery bags for the weekly trips to the fashion friendly Farmer’s Market.

No need for “use and toss” paper bags or the unabashedly-horrendous plastic consumer bag.

Envirosax is here to save the day!

Envirosax is leading the way for uber-cute, reusable bags that are made from incredibly eco-friendly materials.  These are the kind of bags that actually make a fashion statement and are special enough to actually trump your purse or push your diaper bag aside.   The fabrics are easy to scrunch under the seats in your car and at the ready for your next unexpected trip to the store or errand on the go.  The styles are diversified and the fabric patterns and designs are sure to elicit “oohs” and “aahs” from bystanders.

I was lucky enough to get stocked up with six different bags from their different lines of products.  And, a little tidbit secret – you all are going to be lucky enough to try your hand at winning one or two or SIX of these gems!

RPET Series – Recycled Polyester

It is hard to believe that bags this delightful can endorse “recycled polyester fabric” or actually sport an advertisement with a male wearing this slingsax.  But, yes, they can.  And, they do.  The fabrics are made of 45% Repreve which is 100% recycled polyester; they are ridiculously attractive and the design is flawless.   Always thinking outside the box, Envirosax has taken to using the remnants of the fabric and created a line of minisax that are perfect for lunch and small enough to be stuffed into your pocket!

Talking about new fabrics and focusing on organic: Linen, Bamboo, Cotton and Hemp

When I first opened the set of bags that fall into the “Organic Series” I was blown away by the supple softness of the fabric.  These are the kind of bags that could double as pillowcases if need be {seriously!}.  The designs are subtle and sweet and the feel of the fabric is divine.  Each bag measures a generous 19.5” by 16.5” and can hold up to 22 pounds!  The materials are sustainable and free from any chemicals and pesticides and scrunch resistant – I can pull out a wad of bags from behind the seat and I am good to go.  I love being able to keep a collection of adorable bags in the car and look like the fashion-forward mom I strive attempt struggle to be.

See ya later frumpy grocery bags!  Sayonara to landfill clogging plastic bags!  Let’s open the door for eco-friendly fabrics and innovative recycled materials.  And, let’s say hello to cute, chic, proud-to-hold-me kind of reusable bags.  Envirosax is here to stay!

    What do I struggle with when it comes to packing up “gear”? Well, it has to be paper in some form! I’m always carrying folders with papers to grade, drafts of whatever I’m writing, and books, books, books. My librarian slip must be showing.
    Oh, and I am subscribed to the blog via WordPress so count me in 3 times!

  2. Cari says:

    The biggest problem I have when trying to get everything together is my lack of 2 extra hands! LOL Sometimes, 2 just isn’t enough 🙂

    May Canadians enter? I struggle with having easy access to the things I need throughout the day – somehow, the things I use most often always seem to end up in the bottom of whichever bag I choose.

  12. Tina says:

    I can never figure out how much to take to “put the baby down” when we pack up gear. How long will people want to hold him? How long will he WANT people to hold him? How long will I want to hold him? How long will he want me to hold him?? lol
