Envirosax reusable bag review + giveaway

I LOVE everything about this bag-
especially the wide shoulder straps!
I was really excited to stumble upon a great website called Conservingnow.com. This website is filled with many different reusable bags- over 100 designs! One of the easiest ways for people to be more "green" is to forego the plastic bags at the grocery store and bring your own reusable bags. Conserving Now makes this easier with their Envirosax, which fold down, making them easier to carry. It is also nice to have a choice of pattern instead of purchasing the same old mundane bags you can get at the grocery store (which also don't fold down!)







For this review, I chose to receive the travel bag #3- which is a print of all things Paris. It took me a while to make a decision because there are so many cute bags, but as soon as I saw this one, I knew I had to have it! When I first got the bag it came folded up and looked like this:



See how small and convenient it is?  Do you see that little white circle next to it? That is a window cling that you can place on your car so you don't forget to bring your bags in- a mistake many people make often (including me!) You can get your own FREE window cling here!

 As I unfolded the bag, I realized that it was a little bit bigger than a typical shopping bag. It also has wide shoulder straps to make it more comfortable if you needed to carry it on your shoulder at the mall Library or Farmer's Market or anywhere else you could think of really. I know I plan to get more of these bags to take to the grocery store with me, but even just one bag has several uses. I know I will definitely use it as a bag for my kids' stuff when we go places! Another cool thing about Envirosax is that besides being "green" AND cute, they also aim to give back. 100% of the profit from these bags fund classroom kits- Conserving Now's way of helping teacher's educate their classrooms about the hazards of plastic bags. It is Conserving Now's goal to be able to get a classroom kit to every teacher in America!

Overall, I love everything about this bag and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to say goodbye to plastic bags.

  6. Great blog with lots of good info. A little difficult seeing well the black text on the dark green background. Other than that you are doing a wonderful job of your delivery.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I'm sorry you are having trouble seeing the black text. It was originally going to be white, but after asking several people their thoughts, the majority said they couldn't read it in white and preferred black. I will try to lighten up the green a bit for a better contrast. I appreciate your feedback!
