A Greener Life, One Sax At A Time

We all know that plastic bags are bad, right? And we all know we should be using reusable totes and such, right? And we all know the glory of Envirosax eco-friendly bags, right?

If you're still in the dark about that last one, listen & learn, mes amis.

The Envirosax line takes eco-friendly shopping to the next level. Not only do they fold down into a tiny little wad that totally fits into your purse/pocket/smallest clutch, they are durable, easy to clean & absolutely gorgeous.


They're compact & Kitten approved.

A friend of mine owns an eco-chic boutique in town called Buttercup & Co. (where I've been known to work on occassion) and she carries an awesome selection of these little bags for just $8 a piece. Convenient, affordable & oh so green.


Pretty, pretty (& full of my groceries from yesterday).

There are several branches of the Envirosax design, from their Graphic Series, to their adorable Kid's Series. I am the proud owner of two lovely bags, one with a monochromatic damask pattern & one with little red birds which you can view here & here.

Visit their site to learn more about their philosophy & you can also take a peek at their brand new blog.

I'm not sure you'll ever see me blabber on about another product like this, but seriously -- I love these (no, no, I haven't been asked to write this -- I'm actually this excited). I've even wrapped presents in them & today I heard a story about a woman using one as a bib for her little one when they were out at a restaurant sans a cloth bib -- I'm positive their potential doesn't end here. Fabulous. We're just one step closer to living a greener life.

Peace, friends. Stay healthy & be good to each other.

Edit: I sent a message to the lovely folks at Envirosax letting them know I love their bags & sent them a link to this entry -- they e-mailed me back within hours offering me a free bag of my choice. What nice people! Soon I will be the proud owner of a 3rd pretty bag. Good feelings all around.

That is the best entry on reusable bags ever. (and not just because Buttercup was mentioned!).
I've always loved Envirosax, but now I love them even more after finding out how they gifted you a bag for being a fan.
hugs!
