I bring you Envirosax
Envirosax® reusable shopping bags are spreading the eco-friendly message with style!
Chic, inexpensive and compact, Envirosax® environmentally friendly shopping bags carry the message of re-use to a world ready to embrace a brighter ecological future.
They can hold 44lbs (20kg) of stuff. I totally believe it. I have PACKED my bags full of stuff when I go grocery shopping.
WHY do I love them so much more…beyond what is stated above? Because they do this!
They are so awesome. You can pop them into your purse…unfold and load up. PERFECT! They also have a kids series, organic cotton, make your own, greenbag grocer, graphic series (which is what I have) and an awesome shower timer!
You can buy a pack of five for about 37.00…which make AWESOME Christmas/Holiday/Birthday/Because gifts. Seriously..they are what my family is going to be getting this year! They are creative, easy to carry around, hold a good shopping load and GREEN!
