The Spring Green #11: Envirosax Review and Giveaway (Ends 4/10) CLOSED

Friday, March 26, 2010 Posted by Dina N

I shop with my own reusable bags all the time. I use them for groceries, clothing, and books. We bring them along for trips to the library and video store, to the pharmacy and farmer's market. As BYOB (bring your own bags) has become more widespread - and many stores provide incentives to do so - I was happy to hear that I am no longer the only person that uses them at my local CVS.

Envirosax takes reusable bags beyond function and turns them into a fashion and lifestyle statement. As aptly put on the company's website, their designer reusable bags are spreading the eco-friendly message with style! Envirosax even carries a line of bags made from organic materials.

I received  the beautiful Hemp Bag #5. Did you know that hemp was cultivated in China as early as 4000 BC? This plant produces the strongest natural fibre known. Hemp fabric is three times stronger than cotton fabric of the same weight. I also learned that with no known insect enemies and a high resistance to disease, there is no need to use harmful pesticides in cultivation. A truly green shopping bag!

The hemp bag came in a drawstring pouch, and the design is even prettier than it looks in the picture. The bag is very well made, and quite roomy: 19.5" x 16.5".  It can safely hold up to 22 lbs. I was curious how the bag would survive in the laundry - it passed with flying colors! I folded it into the little pouch with ease - in there, it's only 4" x 5.5". Once tucked away in the pouch, the bag can be conveniently carried in your purse, placed in your car's glove compartment, or even in a large pocket.

Apart from the bags in the organic series, Envirosax has a graphic series, bags for kids - great for teaching the little ones some green lessons - and  greengrocer series that come in many beautiful colors. The non-organic bags can hold up to 44 lbs. There are many wonderful designs, and you can find one - or many! - to fit your style.

The Giveaway
One reader will win an Envirosax reusable bag of their choice from the graphic series
