Envirosax® designer reusable bags are spreading the eco-friendly message with style! – a genuine claim made by Envirosax. I bought my first five Envirosax bags when I was on vacation in 2009. My soulmate and I were visiting Rhodes Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence. In the school store, we saw the eco-totes piled in a bin and went gaga over their soft feel and their glorious colors and patterns. And we liked how easily an Envirosax bag folds up and how its strap snaps together- just as an umbrella’s. It doesn’t need to be stuffed into a pouch, another plus. The pricing? Inexpensive!
Product Dimensions. The Envirosax bag weighs just 1.4oz. Unrolled, it measures 19.5″x16.5″. Rolled up and inside the optional pouch, it measures 4″x1.5″. Its weight capacity is 44lbs (equal to two plastic supermarket bags).
Product Material. Envirosax bags are made from ‘the all-new Envirosax Science Certification Systems (SCS) Certified Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (RPET) fabric’, which is simply recycled polyester (from bottles). The bags are waterproof.
While in the RISD school store, I first put just two Envirosax bags in a shopping basket and then as I thought about the family and friends we would soon be visiting, I added another and yet another to my basket. After leaving the store, I later returned for a few more. The Envirosax gifts were big hits with everyone, male and female.
By the time that my soulmate and I returned home from vacation, we had one Envirosax bag left. And I tucked that one into a safe deposit box with some special DVDs with the idea that I wouldn’t need to remember to take a bag with me upon returning to collect the DVDs.
So then I needed to buy another Envirosax bag. But I hadn’t noticed the brand. I went online to hunt. Even similar bags of different brands had some unlikable feature- cheap material; poor quality; ugly designs; not self-closing. And then, Eureka! I found an image of an Envirosax bag and then the Envirosax site.
I was surprised to see the large variety of design themes …
